I believe the clips in photo #3 hold the transmission fluid cooler lines that go to the bottom of the radiator.

Part 1 is a bracket for one of the cooler line clips in photo 3, the bracket is attached to one of the front oil pan studs. The right bracket in photo 2 could be the washer fitted between the starter bracket and the oil pan. I dont think the left bracket in photo 2 is a oem part.


Pics have been mostly answered but I will chime in with more detail.
Picture 1: is the bracket mounted to stud at right front corner of oil pan for Trans Cooler lines as seen in Pic 3.

Picture 2 on left: is the strap that attached to RH trunk cardboard wall to hold the jack base in place (see pic below). 

Picture 2 on right: is the 1964 Turbo Hydramatic Starter spacer that goes between the starter support bracket and the oil pan.

Picture 3 are the trans color line clamps... one mounts to that bracket in picture 1 on the U nut clip end and the other mounts to a U nut clip attached to the front trans inspection pan that goes in front of the adaptor ring.

Just to add, there is another similar looking clamp use on the rear facing front frame section for the gas line and the brake line but you can always tell it from the trans line clamps since it has a large back section for gas line and smaller front section for the brake line.  The trans lines have the same size "humps" since the trans lines are the same diameter.


Thanks Jason! Excellent info and photos!

This is a fun ——education for me of some of the supporting  unique hardware on our year Cadillacs and there location on the cars

1963 series 62 convertible transmission issue

Hello I've been restoring a 63 for way to many years. Down to almost done, but have issue with trans linkage, when column in park shift rod 2 inches short. everything original. been trying to find picture of manual rod hooked up from under car to see position of linkage. was wondering if anybody has access for pictures. I wanted to see if my manual linkage is bent  wrong out of the trans if somebody dropped the trans or something. Doesn't make sense why it doesn't work. Thanks for any input…

Torque converter grab when idling in Drive

Posted by Cliff Johnston on June 14, 2021 at 8:47pm 2 Comments

Hi Everyone, been quite a while since i have been on here.

I have had an issue with the idle on my 64 Coupe Deville ever since i have had it.

With the Idle set high enough that it is smooth, but still a nice idle, the RPM seems only slightly too high for the stall of the Torque Converter. And therefore it tends to sit there and grab and lunge a bit. So until now, i have been putting the car in Neutral at the lights to stop this happening.

I've had the car dyno tuned and…
