"+1 on checking the transmission fluid when the car is running, at operating temp, and in neutral.   Common mistake for people to check it cold and engine off.  Yes, it's pints, not quarts, on the dipstick.  As for being hesitant…"

Do all Dual Coupling Hydramatics have torus drain back when parked for days?

  I have a 1963 Jetaway 315 4 speed Hydramatic that when it is parked for a few days the dipstick shows it is way overfull . Also when I first start it I must wait for almost a minute before it will go into any gear after a minute it works flawlessly. . I have been chasing leaks and the trans never leaks when driving or parked for 8 hours or less , After that the dipstick will show it is overfull and it leaks due to the fluid level being above the pan gasket level . I now have the pan gasket…See More

Intake crossover Block off effect on exhaust note

  I have been driving my 62 390 since Nov 1969 . I have always had stock mufflers and resonators and I enjoy the fact that it is very quiet . In 2000 I put a new dual exhaust system on it and again it was very quiet.Recently I repaired the intake manifold as the choke tube was leaking so i ordered the Olson block off Gaskets. When I started it up the exhaust note had become much more aggresive. In short I hated it !I tore it down again used stock gaskets and the sound returned to normal. I have…See More

Removal of Jetaway extension housing in car?

      I have read that it is possible to remove the extension housing with the trans still in the car. Clearlythe rear crossmember under the housing must be removed. Is it necessary to remove the larger crossmember with the yaw mounts?  Has any one done this project ?  I want to work on the reverse clutchSee More

Jason Edge replied to Doug Scarrow's discussion Will a 63 crossmember with yaw mounts fit a 64?
"Yaw mount is transmission specific, front crossmember is year specific."

Another advantage of the Pertronix III

Posted on November 23, 2019 at 11:12am 0 Comments

   Having tried both the II and III I can say the multispark feature of the III offers a smoother idle . It is also easier to install .Does not require removal of the distributor

accumulator dryer

Posted by CHRIS CARLSON on December 6, 2023 at 10:54am 0 Comments

Who rebuilds original AC  accumulator dryers for 1964 Cadillac? I have been on Classic auto air in Tampa FL wait list for over a year ,  There is one on Old air products web site that looks very similar to the original # 21-4214A but states it fits 1962 Gm cars, The one recommended for a 1964 Cadillac is half the length 21-4215A    What  is everyone using ? I would prefer to be as original as possible. Thanks

'63 Eldorado trumpet horn + 2 standard horns restoration

Posted by Les Eastling on November 15, 2023 at 10:34am 1 Comment

My son, unbeknownst to me, had all three of the horns on our 1963 Eldorado completely restored. We had recently added the Eldorado trumpet horn to the two standard horns and the sound was not very good... we had heard good ones so we knew something was not right... but there was not much we could do to get better sound from the 3 horns. 

There is a restoration service called The Horn Works who my son…

Spark Plug Heat Range

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)  

The insulator…
