63 & 64 Cadillacs, the last true high quality Cadillacs?

Has it occurred to many of you that might have had experienced Cadillacs built after 64 to be not as nice feeling on the inside? Because in my experience after sitting inside a 65 Caddy the other day, including previously owning a 68 Coupe Deville, is that Cadillac started using more plastic components and cheaper feeling materials starting in 65 or more so 67 where as, the 64 on down Cadillacs still used real stainless trim, and high quality chrome on the inside of the interior. Plus more…See More

Front passenger Ash tray cover removal?

Hey guys it’s been awhile since I’ve been on the forum here but I recently acquired a 64 Fleetwood wood dash trim set and I want to install the Fleetwood ash tray door cover in place of the original one on my 64 SDV. I installed the glove box which looks way better and gives the interior a nice classier touch. But the problem I’m having now is that I was able to remove 3 out of the 4 tiny screws that hold the ash tray cover in place from the housing, I can’t get to the last one which is very…See More

Correct strut rod bushings replacement

Posted on October 29, 2015 at 8:41pm 5 Comments

A quick question. Is there a difference in the bushing design from the 63-64 vs the 65 on up Cadillacs?

I am in need of some bushings and I've looked on RockAuto, and OPG, but I am confused because on the OPG website it list the bushings being the same for a 61 all the way up to a 76 Cadillac.

Caddy Daddy is insanely expensive and overpriced, so I am looking for alternatives.

Can I use the MOOG bushings part # K5184 for the 64?

Thanks.

I think my 64 has a 65 engine and trans combo in it? Help!

Posted on August 13, 2015 at 8:33am 32 Comments

Hello everybody, well this has been an interesting journy. I am still trying to figure out why I am getting a vibration at the flywheel area, I suspected something was replaced so this lead me to look at the transmission ID # on the side of the trans, including the engine itself. I can't believe it took me this long to figure it out, but the ID # on the trans is AA-65, and the 429 engine has to be out of a 65 as the water pump lower hose outlet connector goes to the passenger side of the…

Anyone have a spare flywheel cover for a 64 with a TH?

Posted on July 24, 2015 at 12:40pm 1 Comment

Exactly what the title says. Mine is missing, and I really don't like the flywheel being exposed as rocks and debris can damage it.

Thanks!!

Oil pan has been cut and welded back together, Why?

Posted on July 24, 2015 at 12:30pm 0 Comments

For some reason I just barely noticed this last night while under the car. It looks like someone removed the oil pan once before, and decided to cut it. I see the weld marking going all around the pan. 

Why would anybody do this?

Fuel Pump Failure

Posted by Jon Shields on August 6, 2022 at 6:48am 3 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…
