1964 DeVille Convertible Electrical Gremlins

I have been assisting a friend with some electrical issues in his 1964 DeVille Convertible.  Owing to the fact that all of the wiring in the driver's door conduit had been severed, and patched together many times over the years, I replaced the entire LH power window harness (windows and by-pass all work now, Yay!)  and the 6-way power seat harness.  The upholsterer had the front seat out, and installed the carpet and padding down over the seat wiring. Before changing the wire harness, the motor…See More

Caddy members, I’m upgrading my 64 2-door coupe deville.

motor guy lost my block (machine shop went under) so I’m replacing motor & tranny with LS conversion. I have motor parts (other than block) for 429, rebuilt transmission, converter, and too many other motor parts not needed with fully dressed LS going in.

Email me (Tom.reichenberger@ipsper.com) or call me (210-739-4854) if you’re interested…..I live in San Antonio, TX.

thanks, TX…

Fuel Pump Failure

Posted by Jon Shields on August 6, 2022 at 6:48am 4 Comments

Hello,

I'm located in Melbourne, Australia and my 64 sedan de ville is stuck in the garage due to failed mechanical fuel pump. The first after market mechanical fuel pump lasted a few years before it failed & left me stranded 5 hours from home. A hire car and tow got us home. On inspection, I noticed a valve not seated within the housing. I was optimistic, pressed it into place and assumed the pump was good to go. But alas, no. From what I can now determine, the diaphragm pushrod…
