I am happy to report that I have successfully replaced the Fresh Air/Recirc door actuator that is located on the blower box-and have done so without having to remove the blower box. I did it by taking out the glove box and attacking it from the back. It took several days, LOTS of patience and some band-aids, but it is done. THE most difficult part -BY FAR- is to remove and then replace the screw that sits on the actuator arm, connecting it to the fresh…Continue
Where do the flashers go in my 64 Deville Convert. I'm thinking that's why both turn signals stopped working.
Where is the best place to purchase good quality motor mounts/trans mounts for my 1964 SDV? I see that Rock Auto has them for $8 and change, and others for $24 and change. Big difference. Is there a better place to buy them from?
Lately if I haven't started my '63 in four or five days it seems that the carburetor has gone dry. The starter cranks for an extended period of time and the engine doesn't come close to firing. I have resorted to pouring a little fuel into the carb to save the starter and battery. This gets it started and it runs fine. It also starts fine after sitting a short while - a couple hours or so.
The fuel pump is new and there is always fuel in the glass bowl of the fuel filter. This, along…Continue
I would like to upholster my caddy back to original. Does anyone know where I can look at some pictures or photos. Also, how hard is it to remove the dash? thanks
My car still has its "T-3"headlamps and they shed poor, yellow-tinted light. I'd like to replace them with something that most folks on this web site use, that would shed good light and don't heat up the wiring with too many amps.
Although the radiator was not leaking, nor was the car running hot, I tool out the radiator today to have it boiled out and rodded out. Then I changed the oil and filter (filter is very easy to reach with the radiator out), then the thermostat got changed.
I'll have the radiator back from the shop on Monday, and will reinstall it then.
The front lower ends are gone but what's there looks to be in decent condition and a fair price in today's market. I have no connection, just passing it along in case it might work for someone.

I went to replace the bulb in the trunk light socket and was met by something I had never seen before: the socket appears to be made in two thicknesses. First a wide one with appropriate cut outs on the side where the bulb nipples fit in, then a long slender shaft (with a cardboard tubular insert) down to the positive contact. I've never seen anything like this. Only thing I can figure is that it is designed to have a metal rod inside the cardboard shaft that…Continue
I got the rebuilt Power module back from the rebuilder and reinstalled it.
It's been a while since i posted on this topic so I will remind those reading that the main problem I have been chasing is that i can't get air out of the AC or the heater ducts-even though the heat/ac vacuum solenoid is working. Today, I found out why.
I installed the newly rebuilt Module but it…Continue
If anyone is interested there is a front lower bumper end for sale on ebay for $750. It looks to be a good restoration. I wish I had the $750 because I have been looking for one of those forever!
Anyone know how to remove the brake drum from the rear axle on a commercial 63?

Would like to wish all our website members a Happy Thanksgiving! Hope you all have much to be thankful for, I certainly do!
I finally got the car back from the body shop, where they color sanded and polished it out. I am literally blown away by the result! Now, it looks great from 2 feet but if you look REALLY CLOSE you can see that the paint is not as glossy as it should be, but Sothe end result is much better than what I started with. The interior is still original.
