Help on Removal of rear seatback on 64 convertible

I'm trying to remove the rear seatback on my 1964 deville conv.  The only help on this site that I can find is the following:

The seatback, its bright stainless trim, and the speaker grille are removed as an assembly.  The seat back hangs on two hooks near the top, and is retained to the body by two bolts and washers near the floor, one on the right side, one on the left.Once these fasteners are removed, lift the seat back upward and free it from the hooks

Bad Guage?

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…

Preventive Maintenance

Dear All, 

Does anyone know if the 1963 Cadillac was manufactured with nylon timing gears?  I checked the factory repair manual which is silent on that issue.

This morning I was speaking with a mechanic at a location where I store another vehicle ('48 Chrysler NY'er).  He had a 70 Deville convertible on his lift to dismantle it so that he could replace the timing chain and more importantly, the nylon timing gears.  He explained that the nylon gets brittle with age and might …

1963 Eldorado convertible boot

I need a used convertible boot for a 63 Cadillac convertible - condition or color is not an issue since it will be used as a pattern for making a new one. One from either a 62 series convertible or an Eldorado would work. I know I am searching for hen's teeth here... but you never know unless you ask!
