My 64 Sedan De Ville has a vibration starting at 20 and stops at 25 to 30 mph before that and after that car runs smooth. Thinking it might be an exhaust vibration I put a little sill glide silicone on the rubber hangers which are only 10 years old and in very good condition. This did not help.

I have owned this car for over 10 years I bought it with 18000 miles…See More

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…
