"Occam's Razor rules the day: It was a bad kick down switch on the linkage. Shoulda checked it first but it was working just a week ago.  Thanks for all responses, I learned something anyway. Norm"

"The white wire from kick down switch goes to transmission connector. Trace it back to transmission connector and make sure it is attached and no breaks in wire."

64 THM Electric Kickdown switch connections: only two at linkage, or more at Tranny?

Hello all.As I reported in a prior post, I got my car back from the shop and now have a part throttle kickdown. Great! However, either by coincidence or by oversight I now no longer have a Full throttle kickdown (which I used to have after I replaced the switch on the linkage). So, I checked the connections on the linkage and they appear to be good. What I am wondering is whether there are other electrical connectors at the transmission, which may have been disconnected during the repair and…See More

Is there a separate Starter Relay, or does the Solenoid serve that purpose?

Posted on August 30, 2019 at 5:57pm 7 Comments

Hello All.

I will be replacing the starter solenoid tomorrow (actually my mechanic will do the work, I'll just supervise). In checking the FSM electrical schematic and chapter verbiage, I don't see anything that looks like (or is referred to as) a starter Relay. It seems the Starter Solenoid serves the function and there's no separate relay. Right or Wrong?

If wrong, where…

Starter Solenoid replacement-how difficult? Where to buy?

Posted on August 20, 2019 at 8:24pm 8 Comments

Hello All.

I believe the starter solenoid has gone bad in my 64 DeVille. When I turn the key, often all I get is a click, then if I try a few times again the starter turns perfectly. All battery cables are on tight and the battery is good. So, I believe this problem is the solenoid. Where do I buy the right solenoid and is it necessary to remove the starter in order to swap it out? …

64 Recirc/Fresh Air Door Actuator replaced; FROM THE INSIDE.

Posted on February 4, 2019 at 11:21pm 8 Comments

I am happy to report that I have successfully replaced the Fresh Air/Recirc door actuator that is located on the blower box-and have done so without having to remove the blower box. I did it by taking out the glove box and attacking it from the back.  It took several days, LOTS of patience and some band-aids, but it is done. THE most difficult part -BY FAR- is to remove and then replace the screw that sits on the actuator arm, connecting it to the fresh…

Source for Motor mounts and Trans mounts 1964 SDV

Posted on January 9, 2019 at 4:23pm 4 Comments

Hi.

Where is the best place to purchase good quality motor mounts/trans mounts for my 1964 SDV? I see that Rock Auto has them for $8 and change, and others for $24 and change. Big difference. Is there a better place to buy them from?

Thanks

Norm
