"The PCV was spliced into that hose and tucked under the manifold the hose going under seems OK I just caped the port on the carb to get it to the right Idle when the new PCV comes I should be able to cut that hose back a little and make…"
"Steve, you are correct. The PCV hose connects to a breather tube under the intake manifold, towards the rear of the engine. To access, you will probably have to remove the intake. You may want to replace the hose at this point since you are…"
"OK I found it was a cracked hose going to the PCV valve and a bad PCV plugged the port on the carb now my question is where does the PCV go it appears to be a hose that disappears under the intake . also can some one point me to…"
"Steve, these cars can be frustrating for sure! For now, you can disconnect the throttle linkage entirely in order to idle the engine, set the timing, adjust the carb etc. It sounds like someone may have switched the linkage on you or it…"

I wanted to see if my manual linkage is bent wrong out of the trans if somebody dropped the trans or something. Doesn't make sense why it doesn't work. Thanks for any input…
I was successful in getting a vehicle from the New York contact I talked about at the last club meeting. I am still trying to figure out how to post a picture of the vehicle that is tied with this comment so if you see a random picture of a black convertible in a yard, that's me haha. …
Hi Everyone, been quite a while since i have been on here.
I have had an issue with the idle on my 64 Coupe Deville ever since i have had it.
With the Idle set high enough that it is smooth, but still a nice idle, the RPM seems only slightly too high for the stall of the Torque Converter.

Newbie to the group here - we have already found tons of invaluable information on the board, so thanks! We are restoring a 1963 Series 62 Convertible.

Not sure if we can buy just the yoke flange as an aftermarket part, or if it has to be rebuilt by a welder/fab guy? Maybe a salvage yard for a source? Again, any…
