Could The Exhaust Heat Riser Be Installed Backwards & Causing Running Problems?

Posted on July 6, 2016 at 2:38am 13 Comments

Is it possible that the rebuild shop put the heat riser valve in backwards, causing excess back pressure in the manifold, causing the engine to skip and cut out and then stall when it is fully warmed up and under load? Also to run very hot- in terms of heating up the car like it never did before, and to be sluggish?

One thing I noticed when the car came back from the shop was that I no longer heard the "tick-tick" sound that the heat riser made when the car was running. The…

NEED A 1964 MUFFLER

Posted on June 29, 2016 at 2:06pm 7 Comments

DOES ANYONE HAVE A SPECIFICATION OR MANUFACTURER NUMBER FOR A CURRENTLY AVAILABLE MUFFLER THAT WILL FIT A 1964 ELDORADO?

IT SEEMS TO BE A UNIVERSAL PART FROM  WHAT I SEE  AVAILABLE ON LINE, BUT THE SELLERS ASK YOU FOR THE LENGTH, INLET AND OUTLET SIZE, OFFSET, ETC. STATING THAT THE APPLICATIONS ARE NOT VEHICLE SPECIFIC. 

ALSO IS THERE A SOURCE FOR THE RUBBER INSERTS FOR THE EXHAUST HANGER/BRACKETS?

THANKS,

JEFF KINZLER

Jeff, I noticed that you had a connection to get a kit to replace the broken choke tubes. I also need the twisted piece. The application is a 1963 Cadillac Deville with the 390 Rochester 4GC. Any help would be appreciated, I would like to get this done while I have the intake manifold off :D I bought my caddy a year ago with a rebuilt engine and shortly after it had a major oil leak. Just took the valley pan off and discovered someone folded the gasket over on one side. At least I know where all of the oil came from now!

Original 64 Color sanded and buffed out

Posted by Norman Silverman on November 10, 2018 at 9:05pm 14 Comments

I finally got the car back from the body shop, where they color sanded and polished it out. I am literally blown away by the result! Now, it looks great from 2 feet but if you look REALLY CLOSE you can see that the paint is not as glossy as it should be, but Sothe end result is much better than what I started with. The interior is still original.
