I hope someone can help solve these two electrical problems that appeared one after the other.By way of background: The car, a '64 Eldorado has very limited use. It was at a restoration shop for 15 months until last January-  that supposedly did a bunch of wiring repairs including rebuilding the gas gauge that still hasn't worked properly, and the clock that hasn't worked, and re-soldering the broken wires in the drive door. All window and seat controls appear to be working properly as well as…See More

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!

63 guidematic issues

Posted by maurice lapoiinte on November 24, 2019 at 3:10pm 0 Comments

 So my 63 guide matic headlamps stay on low beam all the time. I have so far bypassed the system and everything works normal. I have been thru the trouble shooting in the manual but this is where the confusion begins.on my car when the power relay is powered I have low beam and when its not powered I have highbeam, this appears to be opposite what the diagnosis says should be correct.The wiring is all original and no wires have been mixed up.has anyone ever unplugged the 2 wire connector…

   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
