Kickdown switch

Looking for a working kickdown switch for my '64 Eldo (Turbo-Hydramatic transmission) carburetor.  Any out there?  Thanks in advance.

Need neutral safety switch

Posted on July 28, 2014 at 1:11am 2 Comments

Help!

My 1964 Eldorado's neutral safety switch has sprung a vacuum leak, and it looks like I will need a replacement.  It has the Tilt/Turbohydramatic switch, a #653 (Part No. 1993653, I believe).  Anyone out there have a good one and, if so, how much will it cost?  If not, any suggestions where I might find one?

'64 Eldo parts needed.

Posted on February 4, 2014 at 10:28pm 11 Comments

After a freeze plug fell out nearly causing fatal consequences to my overhauled 429 engine (with 665 miles on it, but the shop has accepted responsibility for repairs) I need to locate a nice connector to my 6 window power window switch - the part which connects to the bottom of the window switches.  Mine is damaged (the backing piece is in tatters) and the pins from the switch are loose and can't seem to stay in contact with the damaged connector.  Appears that a replacement will have to be…

Can you help? Driveshaft Question....

Posted by Chris on May 30, 2021 at 8:55am 1 Comment

Hello!

Newbie to the group here - we have already found tons of invaluable information on the board, so thanks! We are restoring a 1963 Series 62 Convertible. We are wondering if anyone knows of a source to buy the propellor yoke flange (that bolts to the pinion flange) for the driveshaft? One of our ears partially broke off. Not sure if we can buy just the yoke flange as an aftermarket part, or if it has to be rebuilt by a welder/fab guy? Maybe a salvage yard for a source? Again, any…

I just wanted to say a thank you to Kurt for steering me to the tech tips page on V.I.N. locations.  Excellent information.  Thanks a bundle.

V.I.N. where?

Posted by Robert Pellow on April 18, 2021 at 1:41pm 6 Comments

Where can I find the V.I.N. on a 63 convertible?  The usual space at the base of the interior windshield on the driver's side has been decimated by weather.

63 Trunk detail

Posted by Bob Pontius on April 8, 2021 at 3:07pm 6 Comments

Jason, I liked the detail and information you have provided. I would like to do mine similar to yours. Can you help? Do you have trunk material? OPGI is sending the trunk product for my 63 Fleetwood. But it does cover the entire trunk as yours was done. If you do not have can you give me a reference? Thanks!! Bob
