Hood to Cowl Side Seal installed and Wiper Washer Pump Working!!

I just got everything back together from installing the hood to cowl side seal weatherstrip and wiper washer kit. I feel like I've been stuck in time on my 64 CDV since last fall's interior project so it was good to make some progress on the Caddy. The washer pump has never worked and I was grinning from ear to ear when I took the 15 minutes to install the $20 repair kit I've now had for 2 years and see them work for the first time.

I thought it would be a good time to address the washer pump as I was redoing the hood to cowl side seals and would have the cowl cover removed and could replace the washer jets if needed.   In fact,  I ended up replacing both washer jets, with one being completely blocked and of course having a bin full of them many with nicer chrome than the ones I had on the car. 

I'll get some good pictures and video but will post some earlier pictures from the iphone below as I was installing the side seals.  (Of course it looks better with the cowl cover installed and everything cleaned up.)

The black weatherstip adhesive is a --3m product
Work very clean with it
It is messy and will stick your fingers together and be difficult to remove from your hands for a while
Use alcohol for clean up but avoid having to do a clean up as much as is possible
It is a very excellent product for its purpose

Enjoy

Yep thats what I did Thanks

I didn't use any adhesive with the hood to cowl seal, only the hood to cowl side seal.

For the holes I meant the long seal not the side seals.

I used black weather strip adhesive on the hood to cowl side seals which this thread references. I am not following the comment about holes in the long strip as there should not be holes in the hood to cowl side seal?  You can see a bit of my black sealant peaking out in this picture which is also posted above:

My follow up on this since I am doing it right now.  I used the rubber the right way parts.  Everything seems to fit good.  The holes on the long strip had to be slit for the screws to go thru.  The long piece was a little longer than what was needed but can be easily cut with scissors.  the side pieces I am putting on right now....Jason did you just use some weatherstrip adhesive on those?

Try to save your red clips because the aftermarket (black) ones don't seem like they want to clip in good.

Perfect! Thank you. It's not listed when you filter by year and model...

Christian. I got my hood to cowl side seals from Steele Rubber. Part # is 70-2057-43. Price is $67.20/pr. Here is the link: http://www.steelerubber.com/search?q=70-2057-43

Anyone know where I can get the seal on the edge of the weatherstrip of the hood-to-cowl seal? Jason, did you get a pair? I looked at Steele, Ruber the right way, OPGI etc. no success...

Temperature gauge not working properly

Posted by SK on March 23, 2022 at 2:43pm 2 Comments

The temperature gauge of my 63 Eldorado does not work properly.

It goes slowly all the way up and stays there, while the true temperature is around 155-160 F (water in the radiator and/or the top of the thermostat housing).

Where should I start to solve the problem? The gauge itself, the temperature sensor, or the wiring? Or something else? The sensor is a new (aftermarket part)…
