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?

All, a while ago I purchased a set of 4 clocks from Jason that he had on the shelf.  I have had some experience in the past repairing clocks, and I was able to get 3 of those four operational.  One I needed for my car, but I have two more that work and keep good time.  Here is my offer, if you would like one for your vehicle contact me at pat.westphal@gmail.com, and we can do an exchange.  You send me your clock - one that is simply not working (you know not in pieces) and I'll send you one of…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.

Caddy members, I’m upgrading my 64 2-door coupe deville.

motor guy lost my block (machine shop went under) so I’m replacing motor & tranny with LS conversion. I have motor parts (other than block) for 429, rebuilt transmission, converter, and too many other motor parts not needed with fully dressed LS going in.

Email me (Tom.reichenberger@ipsper.com) or call me (210-739-4854) if you’re interested…..I live in San Antonio, TX.

thanks, TX…

While working on my trunk lock on 64 Cadillac, I mistakenly closed the locking mechanism while the trunk was open.  Is there an easy way to manually release the lock back to the open position?

Fuel Pump Failure

Posted by Jon Shields on August 6, 2022 at 6:48am 4 Comments

Hello,

I'm located in Melbourne, Australia and my 64 sedan de ville is stuck in the garage due to failed mechanical fuel pump. The first after market mechanical fuel pump lasted a few years before it failed & left me stranded 5 hours from home. A hire car and tow got us home. On inspection, I noticed a valve not seated within the housing. I was optimistic, pressed it into place and assumed the pump was good to go. But alas, no. From what I can now determine, the diaphragm pushrod…
