I would like to ask what is the best and safest way to remove windshield and rear window from 1963 Cadillac.

Which company sells the best rubbers that go around these windows.

Thank you for the help

Rock auto is where I got my windshield gasket from. I had them done by a restoration shop and they both leaked like sieves after. I redid my windshield because I got tired of bringing it back to be fixed and it kept leaking. Messy job but well worth doing it myself as no more leakes

what product did you use to reseal it?

I used a black polyurethane sealant made for automotive windows. I can't remember the name of it at the moment but it was 20 Canadian and I got it at an automotive window installation shop. I put the sealant in the lip of the window gasket then installed it onto the window. I then installed the window/gasket in the window frame. Then filled under the lip between the frame and gasket and finally filled the cavity with caulking. Then installed the chrome trim. I then spent an hour cleaning all excess caulk off the window and chrome. I didn't want it to cure on it. That stuff is make to stick

Sorry forgot to add you have to dig out all the old sealerfrom around the window, then cut the old rubber gasket lip, from the outside, that holds the window in and remove with suction cups. Harbour freight has them cheap. In Canada I got mine at princess auto. 

Thank you,

Paul

Bad Guage?

Posted by Karl Schwarz on August 26, 2020 at 3:08pm 5 Comments

So I am troubleshooting my fuel gauge issue. I bought a new sender and tested it. It  it goes from 1-ohm (empty) to 35-ohm (full). When I test it (outside the tank), when the float is in the up (full) position it only moves the gauge to about 1/2 full. When at the bottom (empty) position the gauge shows empty. This is the same issue I have when I fill and then use the gas in the tank - the gauge never reads ore than half full. Based on what I've read on this thread it would seem like the…
