Weather stripping vendors

I am getting ready to order roof rail weather stripping and rear door window leading edge seals for my '63 Series 62 6 window sedan model 6229.  I've been on the websites for Rubber The Right Way, Steele Rubber Products and Metro Molded Parts.  The first two listed companies have identical products, with prices on each item exactly the same as their competitor, right down to the penny.  Metro's products are less in cost, but their catalog is a little confusing.  They offer two different roof…See More

"The belt may not be slipping, but the clutch might be.  The clutch will wear away over time or get grooved, and then stop holding.    Start off by checking the air gap between the clutch and driven section of the pulley.  It…"

Noisy A/C compressor

I just picked up my '63 Series 62 from the shop yesterday, after it spent 51 days there for repair of various oil leaks.  Started it up and turned on the A/C, it ran great for about 30 seconds and blew cold air, but then the compressor started screeching loud enough to bring people running out of the shop.  My mechanic looked at it for short time, rotated the clutch back and forth for a bit, and things were okay again. He thought it may have been from sitting too long.  I got about 3 miles down…See More

Available parts

Posted by Thomas Reichenberger on October 13, 2022 at 11:47pm 0 Comments

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

motor guy lost my block (machine shop went under) so I’m replacing motor & tranny with LS conversion. I have motor parts (other than block) for 429, rebuilt transmission, converter, and too many other motor parts not needed with fully dressed LS going in.

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

thanks, TX…

While working on my trunk lock on 64 Cadillac, I mistakenly closed the locking mechanism while the trunk was open.  Is there an easy way to manually release the lock back to the open position?

Thanks.

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. 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…
