Well my friends looking for a little advice. the old Rochester has well; seen better days.it leaks around all the gaskets after i just replaced them all. I have a 600 cfm Holley off an old Mopar thinking about putting it on the 64 SDV. Just wondering if anyone has experimented with the holleys on these cars? it wokrs great on the Mopar 360 cubic inch just not sure about the spacers and gaskets i need. A question for jason is did you use JB weld for the choke tube hole or whats your thoughts on plugging the hole?

Thanks all Tyler

Ian, that's a good way of putting it!

So........For a 63,  the eldelbrock 1406 is perfect if going for a great functioning carburetor, and a 1411 is you wanna try and get a little more punch???(and  a little less mileage....)

Will the stock carburetor insulator spacer not work with the Holly? If not, check the Holly web site to see if they sell a spacer with a PCV connection that will work with their carburetor. You are not the only person that is trying to use a Holly on a car with a PCV valve.

No there is a 3/8 " fitting to connect brake booster. Just the holley limits that they don't have the pcv fitting in the front like the original Bakelite or the edelbrock have. I'm thinking you would be right about steeling the vacuum away from the brakes. Thinking I'll just have to break down and get the edelbrock. Haha just $ 329 that I might not have to spend. Not to sound cheap
Comment by Tony and Ginny 429 on August 30, 2015 at 9:11pm
That connection would be to the back of the Edelbrock carb ,so it does not apply if using the holly carb ,you plan on using
Good luck with the carb swap

The PVC system is to remove spent oil vapors from the crankcase and pass them thru the carb into the engine
Keeping the crankcase cleaner
It is oily stuff
I think you have a connection ,for the brake booster vacuum hose behind the carb on the intake manifold. ,or some place back there
Why are you not using that ,so your brakes work as they should ?

1963 series 62 convertible transmission issue

Posted by Matthew VanDeWater on June 22, 2021 at 3:03pm 1 Comment

Hello I've been restoring a 63 for way to many years. Down to almost done, but have issue with trans linkage, when column in park shift rod 2 inches short. everything original. been trying to find picture of manual rod hooked up from under car to see position of linkage. was wondering if anybody has access for pictures. 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…

Torque converter grab when idling in Drive

Posted by Cliff Johnston on June 14, 2021 at 8:47pm 2 Comments

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. And therefore it tends to sit there and grab and lunge a bit. So until now, i have been putting the car in Neutral at the lights to stop this happening.

I've had the car dyno tuned and…


Can you help? Driveshaft Question....

Posted by Chris on May 30, 2021 at 8:55am 1 Comment


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. We are wondering if anyone knows of a source to buy the propellor yoke flange (that bolts to the pinion flange) for the driveshaft? One of our ears partially broke off. 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…
