reality sets in

Another year went by, and I still haven't gotten around to touching my 64 Eldorado.     I don't think anymore that I ever will.  So after the year turns, I'm gonna try and sell it.   Not sad though,…Continue

"I'm not sure if the top number is the same, but I can tell you that convertible tops are very doable, especially if you are using a premarked top from electron, robbins, or ez-on.the whole procedure is written out in the shop manual, and you…"

"the only advice I can give is to also order the rubber mounts, they will probably be so dry that they wlll break off and be unusable.  Not too expensive and you'll need three of them.Other than that, just make sure the top is all the way…"

Mark S Anderson replied to Ron Collins's discussion Tranny Problem??
"If the transmission shift lever can spin 360 degrees, then you might have a stripped out detent lever or stripped manual shaft in the transmission.    Just as likely, the set screw has come undone and slipped off the end somehow.…"

Mark S Anderson replied to Christian Doerk's discussion Comfort Control and voltage from the voltage regulator or alternator
"a one volt difference at the battery shouldn't create a one volt drop at the transducer, the control panel circuit should compensate for voltage fluctuations.  My 66 drops to 12.7v with the AC and lights on but the climate control…"

Mark S Anderson replied to Andy Kalnins's discussion courtesy light wiring
"The voltage you see on the ground side when the circuit isn't on is normal; the voltage on the right side is "leeching" through the filament of the bulb on the left side, because they are all connected.  This is very good news,…"

Mark S Anderson replied to Andy Kalnins's discussion courtesy light wiring
"Andy, everything you need to know is already at hand.  If you ground the black wire with a bulb in place, the bulb lights.  So you have no ground at the jamb switches or the seat switch.  You should start by repairing what you know is…"

Mark S Anderson replied to Andy Kalnins's discussion courtesy light wiring
"All of the courtesy lights in the circuit are tied together, so that if one switch is closed, they all come on.  Therefore, it's a series circuit.  The black wire has power because the voltage is travelling thru all of the bulbs in…"

Mark S Anderson replied to Sam G's discussion Comfort Control Temperature Dial Calibration

Mark S Anderson replied to Sam G's discussion Comfort Control Temperature Dial Calibration

Radio Belts

Posted on January 22, 2017 at 11:20am 10 Comments

I just finished repairing a few 66 stereos, and after fixing up the circuits to make them play again (another discussion), I was left with the usual problem; trying to find a belt that wouldn't slip.

I've tried:

  • 'glue together' kits -- they can break off at any time, so no-go.
  • rubber dial belts available online -- they stretch and…

64 eldo bench seat covers

Posted on February 16, 2015 at 9:00am 12 Comments

Just getting started on a new set of seat covers, this is as far as I made it last night.    Only using vinyl, but perforations are pretty similar, and I'll have the patterns made for a leather copy later on.   I'll post pics up as I go forward.

baku wood

Posted on July 18, 2014 at 9:17pm 10 Comments

So I bought a sheet of paper backed makore (baku) veneer to redo the wood on my 64.  It seems like the original has a urethane clear coat.  What's everybody using for a final finish?   I have plenty extra to play with, I think I want to start with an automotive clear urethane, but what is the norm?   It says "hand-rubbed in the advertising, which would lead me to think it was lacquer, but lacquer thinner tests make me think they used urethane.  

Glue suggestions would also help, I'm…

Starter Solenoid replacement-how difficult? Where to buy?

Posted by Norman Silverman on August 20, 2019 at 8:24pm 8 Comments

Hello All.

I believe the starter solenoid has gone bad in my 64 DeVille. When I turn the key, often all I get is a click, then if I try a few times again the starter turns perfectly. All battery cables are on tight and the battery is good. So, I believe this problem is the solenoid. Where do I buy the right solenoid and is it necessary to remove the starter in order to swap it out? …

Upper A Arm Rubber Bumpers

Posted by Gene McIlroy on August 12, 2019 at 1:30pm 3 Comments

I have found a very good replacement part for the Upper A Arm Bumpers.  The top part is identical to the originals the bottom can be used as is or after a few minutes with a belt sander can be ground to the V shape as the originals were.  The replacement bumpers are for a 2001 to 2005 S10 Sanoma or Blazer.  Part number is on the box in the photos.  First photo is the box next to the box is the S10 part and an original.  Next photo shows my sanded down part next to an original.…
