what is the vacuum canister for that is behind the drivers front fender?

After removing my fender I see its got a hole in the top but nothing is hooked to it and no line is laying there.

Any help would be great. I finally bought my dream car and starting the process of collecting parts and information.

The shop manual shows the power door locks vacuum diagram.  It shows that the "red" hose is "T" to both the left and right front door.  Where is this "T" located?

Looks like the T fitting is directly behind the dash maybe 6" or so past the firewall. See picture. If you have the original vacuum lines you should be able to trace it. If making up to install in a car that did not have vacuum you might consider a good old used hose set as a guide. Here is the picture ...click to enlarge and note green arrow pointing to T area for vacuum supply left and right. 

If I am reading your picture correctly, the hose on the left of the picture goes to the passenger side door, and the "T" where the green arrow is looks to be on the drivers side about above the radio.  Am I correct?  Where does the other side of the "T" attach to?  I am trying to replace the hoses that run through the drivers side door.

This is in rough shape. Not only is there rust in the usual places but it is also bent. I replaced this piece on my car after an accident, but since this is a hard to come by piece, I figured someone…Continue

1963 series 62 convertible transmission issue

Posted by Matthew VanDeWater on June 22, 2021 at 3:03pm 1 Comment

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…
