Most excellent info. I would have liked to do that to the hearse, but that has moved on to a new owner.

Hi Russ!  I would love to see you put a "Big Cad" into one of your '63-64 cars.  While not for the meek and mild, the conversion is a definite improvement, keeps the car "all Cadillac" and eases the sourcing of parts when you are on vacation 500 miles from home and your fuel pump dies! 

I have attached a link from the company where I bought the crate motor. Of course they published this years AFTER I did the job so mine was trial, error, cuss, cuss, cuss and then success!

This lays out the swap up to 1962 but our frames are very similar to the '62 and I can honestly say 90% of the mods described within are valid. Good luck, let me know how else I can help!

Mike

I have turned off…

Map Light

Posted by RIchard Yasenchack on January 1, 2022 at 8:07pm 7 Comments

I have a 63 Cadillac Series 62 convertible.  Can someone post a picture showing what the map light should look like?

Mine is a meta air vent like grating, which just does not look right for a map light.

Thanks in advance.  Rick

Upgrades for the Coupe de Ville

Posted by Kurt on December 24, 2021 at 6:00pm 4 Comments

At long last I finally have power vent windows! I started collecting the parts 3 years ago. The one thing I could not find until recently is the 6 button driver's switch. Jason finally pulled one in and was more than generous with pricing. Thanks Jason! Installing the vent window motors was the easiest part of the project but many other tasks were spawned by this project.

  1. There is a hole in the door panels where the window crank was. I considered putting a hub cap emblem there…

center bolt size for crankshaft pulley

Posted by Dan Norris on December 6, 2021 at 3:13pm 2 Comments

I need to pull my distributor, and still have the cork in the end of the crankshaft. What is the bolt size needed to thread a bolt in there to be able to turn the motor over with a pull handle and socket to get it to TDC exactly before I pull the distributor out?
