Brakes Went Out

Posted on August 8, 2018 at 8:25am 36 Comments

My '64 Cadillac DeVille had been sitting for awhile while I was travelling this summer and when I came home it had some issues starting. After replacing the plugs and the ignition coil, it was running better than it had in a long time but the brakes were sticking. I noticed the brake pedal was traveling a little farther than usual when slowing down. Soon after I noticed a hissing noise coming from around the brake pedal. Then I lost the brakes pretty much completely. I couldn't find any…


Modernized Stock Radio

I've been waiting a long time for somebody to make this so I'm really excited to share it. I've seen people run Aux to the original radio, but this goes way beyond that. You can keep the looks of the stock radio, but with modern amenities like Bluetooth, Aux, and outputs for Amps and Subs. I posted the website and Youtube link to a Cadillac radio below. …


Cowl cap

Does anybody know what the deal is with the caps under the cowl? I was cleaning out a mouse nest and found that the passenger side cap was cracked open. What are they there for? Does anybody have a replacement for sale?

NOS Hubcaps Bidding War

Is anybody else watching this auction? I don't think I've ever seen hubcaps go for prices like this, though I can't recall the last time I saw real, in box, NOS caps. Link below

Hi Chris my name is Joe. I was looking in the help topics under A/C stuff & came across your AC problem & was wondering if you got it figured out ?

OK so I figured it out the lens come out easy just stuck a bit. I thought it was a burned out bulb but its not. The right side all work but the left side does not blink. Very low light from the turn signal but the corner light on the fender just stays on. Where else should I look?

Hi Christopher, If you still need an in-car sensor grill you were at the top of my 'needs list' and have a nice one from the last parts car waiting for you. Check your emails. Jason.

Here it is:


The main factor is the length of the ceramic insulator from the middle of the spark plug to the tip (where the spark happens)

Lower Front End Ball Joints

Posted by Logan Robb on May 11, 2023 at 9:04am 7 Comments

Good Morning all! 

I took the 64 into the shop to have some adjustments completed and in the process decided to have the lower ball joints replaced as was recommended the last time I had it in. I ordered the parts and came into the shop. They quoted me nearly $500 to replace those lower ball joints requiring nearly 4hrs of labor. Now this is a reputable shop and they know me by name here and they will continue to get my business. I am just questioning what on earth is…
