"Thanks Tony,  there is a clock spring in the window regulator that I think helps the window go up and keep it from crashing down when lowering it."

Phil replied to Phil's discussion Door panel carpet replacement.
"Ohh ok.  If I understand correctly The face of the top binding is sewn to the board and the carpet panel is then hinged down to glue and wrap the edges?  Thanks for the help.  "

Mark S Anderson replied to Phil's discussion Door panel carpet replacement.
"in that case, you sew the top binding on the board(over the carpet) face down first, then you do the edge binding with the top binding pulled up.   Same way, sew it face down and then fold over."

Hello,  would anybody be able to tell me if I’m using the correct gasket on my Rochester throttle body? It doesn’t  look right to me.  I’m not sure if the carb actually ran with this gasket because I got it used with no history.  Any help would be appreciated …

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

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

thanks, TX…

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.
