the rubber on the underside of the windshield posts (A pillar) on both my drivers and passengers sides are toast, completely disintegrating.  This rubber seals up against the front of the vent window frame on each door when the doors are closed.  USA Parts seems to call these "convertible door pillar seal".What is the best way to replace these and how are they removed?  Are they just held in by friction?  My shop manual seems to make no reference.  USA Parts has them for $86 per pair.  Is this…See More

Help on Removal of rear seatback on 64 convertible

Posted on January 8, 2021 at 11:44am 7 Comments

I'm trying to remove the rear seatback on my 1964 deville conv.  The only help on this site that I can find is the following:

The seatback, its bright stainless trim, and the speaker grille are removed as an assembly.  The seat back hangs on two hooks near the top, and is retained to the body by two bolts and washers near the floor, one on the right side, one on the left.Once these fasteners are removed, lift the seat back upward and free it from the hooks

I've removed…

Fuel Pump Failure

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

Hello,

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…
