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

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…

Hello!

Newbie to the group here - we have already found tons of invaluable information on the board, so thanks! We are restoring a 1963 Series 62 Convertible. We are wondering if anyone knows of a source to buy the propellor yoke flange (that bolts to the pinion flange) for the driveshaft? One of our ears partially broke off. Not sure if we can buy just the yoke flange as an aftermarket part, or if it has to be rebuilt by a welder/fab guy? Maybe a salvage yard for a source? Again, any…
