"There is no vacuum to the 1963/64 Hydramatic. The Turbo Hydramatic introduced in 1964 on certain body styles had a vacuum modulator but not the HydraMatic."

"My problem is I have none of the original throttle assembly so I will have to fabricate something which won't be an issue. Is there anything vacuum controlled on the transmission? "

Transmission questions

Hello all. New member and new to classic cadillacs so I have some questions. Last year I got my hands on a resto-mod 63 coupe deville project and have been making good progress till now. I don't have any of the original throttle linkage/pedal assembly including the TV rod. Would not having the TV rod hooked up yet cause the transmission not to upshift? See More

Dipstick seal

Started by Tosh Dickenson in 1963/64 Cadillac Specific Discussion. Last reply by Logan Robb 7 hours ago. 2 Replies

There appears to be some kind of felt washer around the top of my oil dipstick, presumable to seal off the dipstick tube. I've looked around the usual parts suppliers but came up empty. There's not…Continue

Is anybody here running a batwing air cleaner? I've attached a picture. I just want to know if it clears the hood and the compressor as I'm hoping to get my A/C working again eventually. They do make…Continue

Loud air moving sound within carb with cleaner removed

Posted by Dave Fehrle on March 23, 2024 at 3:23pm 8 Comments

While checking my Carter carb with engine running, I took the air cleaner off and there was a very loud hissing sound of air. I placed a piece of paper over the carb and it didn’t move up or down, is this normal?

Vintage Air AC

Posted by Chase on March 21, 2024 at 5:55am 0 Comments

Hey everyone, has anybody done a Vintage Air AC/Heat setup in their car? I want to bypass the old vacuum setup and go with a Vintage Air Gen 2 model. Before I get started, does anyone have any experience with this? (Which model to go with, do’s and dont’s, etc.) It looks pretty involved. Any and all info/pics would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

accumulator dryer

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…
