Where to find a perfect 1963 Cadillac alternator

When I got my 1963, I was in High School (1977).  The Cadillac was not valuable at the time. Over the years I purchased auto parts from the parts store and kept it running.  Now the car is worth something and all those replacement parts are wearing out.  I have started to source original parts and have them rebuilt (renewing the originality of the car). Jason sent me an alternator core with the right markings, and I had it rebuilt.  Jason asked where and I realized, most people do not have the…See More

Cruise Control

I have a perfect circle cruise control.  My speedometer is not working.  It turns going into the "Perfect circle" but not out.  When I fiddle with it, the speedo works for a short time.  The cables (from tranny and to dash) seem to seat correctly.  Any idea how to fix this?Also, does anybody know where to send these out for rebuild?Thanks See More

Help a couple in their 80s with a Cadillac???

Posted on March 7, 2014 at 12:16am 1 Comment

There is a couple in their 80s about ready to celibrate their 50th wedding anaversery. Their son saw my 63 Cadillac in San Diego and he is trying to find a 1960-1964 Cadillac in Las Vegas in the spring for a ride.  Why? It seems these couple had a 1962 Cadillac when they were married 50 years ago. The son wants to do something nice for them and find “the car” to take them to a nice dinner or show.

 

If you have a nice Cadillac in Vegas, I would like to connect you…

Heater core replacement

Posted on December 15, 2013 at 11:31am 6 Comments

Does anybody have a detailed set of instructions on how the heater core comes out??? 

Is this from the inside on the car (disassemble the dash?) or from the engine compartment??

Transmission swap on a 1963

Posted on June 28, 2013 at 3:05am 2 Comments

My Jetaway in my 1963 convertible is giving me problems....again.  It has 10K on a rebuild.  The transmission has been a problem some years and I have a lot of money into it.  I have not found a good transmission guy, so I am thinking.

Does anybody have specific parts and instructions for a 700R transplant??  I am thinking that I might just get rid of the Jetaway and the headaches from the thing.

Any Ideas???

Hi

After cleaning these switches several times, I need to give up on this switches. I understand there are some options (none of which I have used).  I understand

1. There is an AC Delco Part #F6035 (UPC 21625479576)

Caddy members, I’m upgrading my 64 2-door coupe deville.

While working on my trunk lock on 64 Cadillac, I mistakenly closed the locking mechanism while the trunk was open.  Is there an easy way to manually release the lock back to the open position?

Thanks.

Fuel Pump Failure

Posted by Jon Shields on August 6, 2022 at 6:48am 4 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…
