"Hey Mike. I found in my parts bin the part you need, I think. You can use it as a sort of template. If you want sizes i can measure it up for you. It looks like the sketch i made earlier."

Replacement 63 Radiator Recommendations

My 61 year old radiator sprung a leak (actually a few leaks). What are you guys using as replacements? Are you replacing with copper or aluminum? How many rows are you running in the radiator? How's the fitment? I understand some manufacturers require you to modify the bottom mount. Also, I've seen some where the transmission coolers lines are not the factory sizes. BTW- This is a factory A/C car.See More

Mike Travers commented on Dave Fehrle's blog post Loud air moving sound within carb with cleaner removed
"Not sure about the paper over the carb but the hissing is not normal and is, almost always, a vacuum leak. In order to help find the leak, you can go to your parts store and buy about 3' of rubber vacuum hose (any size) and use it as a…"

"Hi Mike. Your hanger is on the wrong place. It is not supposed to be there and as you say, you are missing a part. That hanger (the missing part) should be mounted on the chassis. Not near the shock mounting."

63 Exhaust Hanger Mystery

I'm in the process of installing a stainless steel single exhaust from Classic Exhaust on my '63 Coupe de Ville. I'm running into a mystery regarding my middle exhaust bracket. I have the bracket that goes on the body but I'm missing the piece or pieces that attach the pipe to that body bracket. I've attached a picture of the bracket I have (the pic is taken looking up over the rear axle where the "over the axle" pipe will run). I was hoping someone on this forum would be so kind as to post…See More

Loud air moving sound within carb with cleaner removed

Posted by Dave Fehrle on March 23, 2024 at 3:23pm 8 Comments

While checking my Carter carb with engine running, I took the air cleaner off and there was a very loud hissing sound of air. I placed a piece of paper over the carb and it didn’t move up or down, is this normal?

Vintage Air AC

Posted by Chase on March 21, 2024 at 5:55am 0 Comments

Hey everyone, has anybody done a Vintage Air AC/Heat setup in their car? I want to bypass the old vacuum setup and go with a Vintage Air Gen 2 model. Before I get started, does anyone have any experience with this? (Which model to go with, do’s and dont’s, etc.) It looks pretty involved. Any and all info/pics would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Who rebuilds original AC  accumulator dryers for 1964 Cadillac? I have been on Classic auto air in Tampa FL wait list for over a year ,  There is one on Old air products web site that looks very similar to the original # 21-4214A but states it fits 1962 Gm cars, The one recommended for a 1964 Cadillac is half the length 21-4215A    What  is everyone using ? I would prefer to be as original as possible. Thanks

'63 Eldorado trumpet horn + 2 standard horns restoration

Posted by Les Eastling on November 15, 2023 at 10:34am 1 Comment

My son, unbeknownst to me, had all three of the horns on our 1963 Eldorado completely restored. We had recently added the Eldorado trumpet horn to the two standard horns and the sound was not very good... we had heard good ones so we knew something was not right... but there was not much we could do to get better sound from the 3 horns. 

There is a restoration service called The Horn Works who my son…
