Cleaning out old boxes of spare parts and found this - interior A pillar trim for CONVERTIBLE.  This is RH, for passenger side.  I'm told these are pretty hard to find, since they're for ragtops.  If you could use it, make me an offer.  Chrome showing its age but still shiny.  Photo links below:1.PNGSee More

Leaky Freeze Plug

Posted on March 22, 2021 at 12:49pm 7 Comments

Just developed a significant leak coming from a freeze plug right over the starter.  Would this be considered a "cam plug" i.e. like Dorman 17616DS?  Our cars have multiple sizes of plugs on engine block and I want to get the right one.  Also, does anyone know how pricey this is for a shop to fix?  Thanks!

Rear Side Window Stainless Sill Removal

Posted on June 24, 2019 at 3:07pm 2 Comments

I'm looking to replace a piece of the stainless trim that sits on the outside of the car like a sill outside the rear passenger side window.  I can just barely see one screw at one end but does the door panel and/or window need to come out to access this?  If anyone has done this I'd like to learn what is involved.  Here's a photo of the piece I'm talking about:…

For sale: 1963 Cadillac front center impact bar $100 + shipping

Posted on April 3, 2018 at 2:12pm 0 Comments

Offering this newly re-chromed 1963 Cadillac front center impact bar for sale, $100 plus whatever it costs to ship it from Detroit to your location.  

The unit fits perfect on driver's side but does not sit flush on passenger side.  I am told someone needs to take a wooden block and hammer and bang the passenger side lower corner in to make it fit right.  If you know how to do this stuff, this is the piece for you.

1963 Carter Carb Mystery

Posted on May 17, 2016 at 11:30am 6 Comments

Last weekend, I was trying (vainly) to remove the blower motor cover in the engine compartment when I noticed something strange:  A black rubber hose, originating from a vacuum actuator on the passenger side of my Carter carb, that went nowhere.  The previous owner had carefully tucked the free end underneath another vacuum actuator attached to the blower motor cover.  There was a plastic nipple stuck in the free end of the hose, meaning the other end led to another hose.  I looked…

Fuel Pump Failure

Posted by Jon Shields on August 6, 2022 at 6:48am 3 Comments

Hello,

I'm located in Melbourne, Australia and my 64 sedan de ville is stuck in the garage due to failed mechanical fuel pump. The first after market mechanical fuel pump lasted a few years before it failed & left me stranded 5 hours from home. A hire car and tow got us home. On inspection, I noticed a valve not seated within the housing. I was optimistic, pressed it into place and assumed the pump was good to go. But alas, no. From what I can now determine, the diaphragm pushrod…
