I was working on my HVAC system this winter and during the process of taking the dash pad off these two parts fell out. Does anyone know what they are and where they go?

Intake manifold gaskets

I am in the middle of doing a carburetor update and I am planning on blocking out the middle exhaust ports on the in manifold as per Jason's instructions on doing this update.  I am going to install an Edelbrock 1406 carb with electric choke.  In the instructions Jason mentions that the intake manifold gaskets should be updated to the thicker kind in order to seal around the metal plate being added to block off the exhaust passage that goes through the intake manifold on the production set up.…See More

Hey everyone.  I am a new member as of March 2021.  I am actively in the market for a 1964 Cadillac Deville convertible.  Red, black, blue or maybe even white.  I am not looking for a Concours level vehicle, I have no intention of taking anything to shows.  I am looking for a Deville to drive on nice weather summer days in Michigan and to enjoy.  I plan to work on and upkeep the vehicle and probably upgrade a few items like brakes and ignition.  I am a retired engineer with 34 years of experience at GM where I started at Cadillac (Clark Street) working along side some of the people that designed and tested the 64 version of the Deville. I am looking forward to driving and enjoying one of these fine vehicles and meeting some of you in the future.

Temperature gauge not working properly

Posted by SK on March 23, 2022 at 2:43pm 2 Comments

The temperature gauge of my 63 Eldorado does not work properly.

It goes slowly all the way up and stays there, while the true temperature is around 155-160 F (water in the radiator and/or the top of the thermostat housing).

Where should I start to solve the problem? The gauge itself, the temperature sensor, or the wiring? Or something else? The sensor is a new (aftermarket part)…
