"If the mechanic said the carb gets clogged with gas, then that tells me it is flooding out. You either have too much fuel pressure or the floats are set wrong.  What electric fuel pump did you put on?"

It would be a complicated engine change due to a change in the 67’s frame that required changes to a number of engine components under the hood  not making that engine an easy replacement in your case 

Basically to many thing need changing to make that a non complicated swap 

The simplest engine replacement for a 64 engine is to be rebuilding your current engine ( less labor intensive ) 

Any engine you use will need you to be sure your engine has the correct  crankshaft to match up to the current turbo transmission that is now behind the engine you now have in your model car 

Only certain models use the turbo 400 trans in 64 while all others use the  older Hydromatic trans that has a different engine crankshaft to match up to that trans 

It is best to have your current engine rebuilt in a 64 — for sure !

The 67 engine after a lot of additional labor required will also be devaluing the car as it is not the engine that belongs in that ride at time of sale often being a turn off to a buyer 

Buyer of our cars do know what they are looking for in most cases and the wrong engine in our year cars is not one of those desirable things to be seeing 

Enjoy

Torque converter grab when idling in Drive

Posted by Cliff Johnston on June 14, 2021 at 8:47pm 2 Comments

Hi Everyone, been quite a while since i have been on here.

I have had an issue with the idle on my 64 Coupe Deville ever since i have had it.

With the Idle set high enough that it is smooth, but still a nice idle, the RPM seems only slightly too high for the stall of the Torque Converter. And therefore it tends to sit there and grab and lunge a bit. So until now, i have been putting the car in Neutral at the lights to stop this happening.

I've had the car dyno tuned and…

Can you help? Driveshaft Question....

Posted by Chris on May 30, 2021 at 8:55am 1 Comment

Hello!

Newbie to the group here - we have already found tons of invaluable information on the board, so thanks! We are restoring a 1963 Series 62 Convertible. We are wondering if anyone knows of a source to buy the propellor yoke flange (that bolts to the pinion flange) for the driveshaft? One of our ears partially broke off. Not sure if we can buy just the yoke flange as an aftermarket part, or if it has to be rebuilt by a welder/fab guy? Maybe a salvage yard for a source? Again, any…
