"A powder spray on spot remover that you vacuum off should do the trick I think a product called -R-12 spot remover or one like it should work It is a dry cleaning dry spot remover found at most major stores Enjoy"

64 Cloth and Leather; What to use to clean the cloth?

I have a 64 SDV with original cloth and leather interior. The seats were covered in plastic for some considerable time, so they have no observable wear on them anywhere, but parts of them are a little dirty. Not stained, just a bit discolored from dirt. Not terrible but I'd like them to look their best.What is the best way to gently clean the cloth part of the seats without causing wear or degradation.ThanksNormSee More

"Norm, the driveline vibration is as you pointed out, with one more piece of the puzzle to add.  The rear lower control arm bushings get distorted due to the spring weight directly bearing down onto the control arm. That causes a change in the…"

Source of slight driveline (?) vibration on my 64 with TH400

Hello All.Because i like my cars to operate as close to the way they did when nearly new, I chase almost everything mechanical. While I'm waiting for Russ' Comfortron book to arrive, I am thinking about the SLIGHT vibration(rumbling) my car experiences at speeds over 50. It is not the tires, of that i'm sure. It feels like a chassis rumble.It is slight, but annoying-to me. If I give the car more throttle at 50 plus the vibration/rumbling seems to get just a bit worse. So, my thoughts are:1)…See More

Need correct Muffler for 64 DeVille

Posted on June 18, 2018 at 7:57pm 13 Comments

Hello all.

I need to replace the muffler on my 64 and the local shop does not have the correct one.

After looking on the web site's help section, I still don't see a recommended part/manufacturer or suggestion. 

What is the best solution to purchase for a stock, single system with 2 1/2 inch pipes, center in, offset out? 

Thanks.

Norm

64 Power Seat Transmission cleaning-it did the trick

Posted on June 16, 2018 at 5:36pm 4 Comments

Hello All.

I thought I'd post a little encouragement for those that might have an inoperative 6 way power seat in their car. The fix is relatively easy, and VERY cheap.

I just purchased an original (not re-painted, nor reupholstered) 64 Sedan De Ville 4 window. When I purchased it the front seat was adjusted forward and tilted down in front; two of the worst positions for me, so I had no choice but to attempt to repair it. 

Pushing the switch in each direction brought…
