"Woah! $900. It is neat to see that mounting kit but you have other issues to deal with. As far as the yoke, you still need to install on an original driveshaft front section. The front sections are readily available.  It is the rear that…"

"The shift pattern is different, so ytou will need the 652 NSS.  However, the 652 will not bolt up to the 63 column.  You will need to swap out to a 64 non tilt THM column.    Or you can jump the starter wires together and drive…"

I have a 63 Cadillac Series 62 convertible.  Can someone post a picture showing what the map light should look like?

Mine is a meta air vent like grating, which just does not look right for a map light.

Thanks in advance.  Rick

Upgrades for the Coupe de Ville

Posted by Kurt on December 24, 2021 at 6:00pm 4 Comments

At long last I finally have power vent windows! I started collecting the parts 3 years ago. The one thing I could not find until recently is the 6 button driver's switch. Jason finally pulled one in and was more than generous with pricing. Thanks Jason!

center bolt size for crankshaft pulley

Posted by Dan Norris on December 6, 2021 at 3:13pm 2 Comments

I need to pull my distributor, and still have the cork in the end of the crankshaft. What is the bolt size needed to thread a bolt in there to be able to turn the motor over with a pull handle and socket to get it to TDC exactly before I pull the distributor out?

Dan
