"Just to add a couple of comments, any 5/8" heater hose with a good dogleg bend can be used to replace the original heater hose.  The 19037 is a good substitute hose (longer than you need), but there are others. I have inserted a picture of…"

Hello,      My 63 convertible is a low mileage (34k) original car so while I've done some basics, like replacing radiator hoses, belts, and a few gaskets; I've been trying to leave things as is as much as possible.  My heater core hose was original and had a bit of the factory blue paint over spray on it.  This is the one that is routed over the top of the valve cover on the passenger side.  Unfortunately the damn thing blew out the other day in 106 heat and I had to replace it.  As usual the…See More

Welcome Ken! I read in your chapter email that you picked up a 63 convertible (Ken is head of the CENTRAL TEXAS CLC Chapter).

I can't wait to see the car...whenever we are allowed to meet in groups again.

Hello I've been restoring a 63 for way to many years. Down to almost done, but have issue with trans linkage, when column in park shift rod 2 inches short. everything original. been trying to find picture of manual rod hooked up from under car to see position of linkage. was wondering if anybody has access for pictures.

Torque converter grab when idling in Drive

Posted by Cliff Johnston on June 14, 2021 at 8:47pm 2 Comments

Hi Everyone, been quite a while since i have been on here.

I have had an issue with the idle on my 64 Coupe Deville ever since i have had it.

With the Idle set high enough that it is smooth, but still a nice idle, the RPM seems only slightly too high for the stall of the Torque Converter. And therefore it tends to sit there and grab and lunge a bit. So until now, i have been putting the car in Neutral at the lights to stop this happening.

I've had the car dyno tuned and…

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…
