Dana Cooper Asks: What Replacement is used for "type A " trans fluid

Started this discussion. Last reply by Anders Oct 18, 2016. 2 Replies

What transmission fluid is suggested to replace "type A " in a 1963 jetaway trans ? I'm assuming Dextron II but I want to be sure. This is a complete drained service, not a rebuild. Any Suggestions ?Continue

Wanted to share a picture of a table my wife made for me to display with our 63 Coupe Deville. 

A/C Issue / Stumped !

Posted on July 23, 2018 at 6:29pm 37 Comments

My 63 CDV factory A/C was trash so I replaced every part in the system and converted to R134 . I also installed a STV bypass kit which eliminated the STV all together and converted the system to a cycling system.  I vacumed and charged the system with 36oz of 134. The system is cycling as it should and the pressures are right at 250 high side, cycle off at 25lbs and cycle back on at about 35lbs. It is making plenty of water on the low side hoses and evaporator drain. There is very good air…

Radiator Bug Screen

Recently I began wondering why & when these bug screens went away. Then I thought back to the time I quit seeing these screens, ( Mid - late 1960's ). After thinking about what…

Jetaway Trans. Flywheel O-Ring

Posted on October 23, 2017 at 10:04pm 1 Comment

This is not a big issue but it may help someone. I am a retired mechanic of 40 plus years and I could not believe I almost missed this... My 63 CDV had a leak at the flywheel O-ring. In preparation for the repair I read many online stories about the O-ring missing completely when they removed the flywheel from the tourrus on the Jetaway transmission.

I removed the trans last week and pulled the flywheel off. Upon inspection I thought "wow, the O-ring is missing off my flywheel too ! "…
