"So i looked at the service manual more in depth and found the specs. Rod bearings should be replaced if clearance is greater than .0035" Main bearings should be replaced if more than .0045""

"Yes. I am however, my camshaft should be about new with less than 4K miles on it. Since engine is out and you said timing chain is very worn, camshaft lobes probably  have a good amount of wear and would be a good time to replace it. I think…"

"Push Rods were the same 63 to 66. Valve Lifters were the same 58 to 66. I see a few other brands on Rock Auto. I like the Melling as they are known for being a quality USA Made produce.  I seen the JB-969 on Amazon for 4.95 with free shipping."

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…

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.
