1964 - 1965 limousine carry-over question

Posted on April 28, 2013 at 11:21am 1 Comment

Hi, new member here.  I have a 1965 Cadillac limousine which is actually a 1964 body style carry-over.  My question is:  Was the 1964 body style placed on a 1965 commercial chassis?  I'm wondering, because should I purchase a 1964 Service Manual or a 1965 Service Manual (or is there no differences between the two years)?  Thanks.  Jim from Worcester, MA

'63 Eldorado trumpet horn + 2 standard horns restoration

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

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

Spark Plug Heat Range

I found a diagram that illustrates the main factor in determining a spark plug heat range that I was trying to describe to you during the chapter get together.

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…
