Have a question for everyone

Posted on February 13, 2016 at 9:30pm 7 Comments

Was informed on Friday that the frame for my 1963 Sedan DeVille was on its way and that this summer would be it's final voyage before it makes the trip to the salvage yard. The car has always been a project for me and I enjoy the looks it gets from people that have never seen such a land yacht before. So my question that is being posed is this, is it possible to buy another frame for the Caddy Sedan from someone like Mr. Edge and mate it to the body I have or is best to keep this one for…

Question

Posted on November 25, 2014 at 2:50pm 4 Comments

The other night on my journey home my 1963 Sedan Deville with the 390 began to run rough. Pulled into the Hess gas station over on Route 31 in Clinton to look at it and see what the problem was and check all the fluids of the car. It was down about a quart of oil so I topped that off and all the other fluids checked out fine. When I started Flo back up to head home it ran a little better but good lord did it smoke something fierce out the driver side exhaust pipe. This has happened before…

Good Afternoon all; I am finally getting back to working on the car after it sitting since last summer. The whole goal of the project is to make this car a vehicle I can enjoy year round through the hot and the cold. With that said when I bought the car the previous owner had removed the heater core lines and plugged up the vacuum ports. I started over the past two weekend removing the old heater core and installing a new one however i made a bad discovery that the metal frame that house the…

Hi everyone, ever since getting the car back on the road, the rear brakes grab when they are cold and I’m moving at slow speed.  Once I get along the road and stop they are fine. I see some posts…Continue

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. I wanted to see if my manual linkage is bent  wrong out of the trans if somebody dropped the trans or something. Doesn't make sense why it doesn't work. Thanks for any input…

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…
