Hello I’m new to the Cadillac world and have recently purchased a 1963 2 door coupe. The car was a project that wasn’t finished by last owner so I have slowly been getting it back together. The motor…Continue
"I should qualify that that would be for a sound engine with no ring blow by into the crankcase which would be a crankcase pressure build up condition that can blow oil out the oil filler cap and cause a mess
There will be no pressure build up in a 64 429 crankcase as the oil filler cap is vented for the crankcase ventilation to flow air thru the engine with the use of the PCV valve and carbs help
I think the oil filler cap being vented…"
"Don't plug the intake valley as the pressure build up (very quickly) will push out gaskets or vent from the oil filler making a mess along with any gasket replacement. Check the crank to cam timing. Just a tooth off can cause problems with…"
"Pls do not try to reset a set of worn points
Install new points - set them at 30 degrees with the engine turning 480 RPMs in drive per the service manual
Get a Service Manual if you do not have one - a very great tool to be understanding…"
"The dwell has to be set right first as it changes the timing number you are looking at
You need to do the points first then the timing
Putting White out on the harmonic balancer and the timing plate will help you see the…"
"Ok, thanks so much for the reply it’s a great help! To answer your question I did replace all plugs/wires/cap etc. I have the timing set to 15 degrees as that’s where it seems to run the smoothest. With the hotter cam I’m only…"
The tube runs from under the intake into the front of the carb with a PVC valve just before entering the carb
That tube clears the crankcase of vaporized oil fumes and would recommend you keep it stock - the crankcase…"
"Have you done a very complete tune up on spec —-including new ignition wires dist cap rotor and ignition timing
Ignition system would be my first check for lack of power— especially timing which is 5 degrees…"
"I think the correct term is road draft tube it sits under the intake and drops in a hole on the “valley cover.” If I understand correctly is used for PCV purposes. Sorry new to the site trying to figure out how to post pics."
Hello I’m new to the Cadillac world and have recently purchased a 1963 2 door coupe. The car was a project that wasn’t finished by last owner so I have slowly been getting it back together. The motor was rebuilt by previous owner with a hotter cam. I thought I had it tuned but tried to drive it and it severely lacked power. After checking everything I noticed the road tube was out of its hole on the intake. I tried putting it back and the grommet started cracking and falling apart. My question…See More

So I am troubleshooting my fuel gauge issue. I bought a new sender and tested it. It it goes from 1-ohm (empty) to 35-ohm (full). When I test it (outside the tank), when the float is in the up (full) position it only moves the gauge to about 1/2 full. When at the bottom (empty) position the gauge shows empty. This is the same issue I have when I fill and then use the gas in the tank - the gauge never reads ore than half full. Based on what I've read on this thread it would seem like the…
