HVAC Vacuum Valve Clip-need the one for the Power Control side



I removed both 7 nipple vacuum valves and called my buddy who owns a machine shop. Tomorrow we'll re-surface the valve faces and then I'll reinstall them. HOWEVER, the one that comes out easily and comes apart with no rivet is on the Power module side. It installs on one side with a small bolt, and on the other it is held on by a clip, WHICH IS MISSING ON MY CAR. I am going to assume it is the same clip that is used on the Control Module side. Anybody got one? Happy to pay for it.

Don't personally know Tony, nor his age but I entered the service in 1969, so I'm likely older than you. (I get the respect thing).

I was wondering if you were going to catch that LOL. You are Tony's age aren't you? I was always to to respect my elders LOL. Whenever I'm called sir I tell them my dad was sir.

Interesting, Clovis.

I admire people like you who like to utilize modern day knowledge and technology to improve the performance of our old machines. My perspective is a little different.

I could never do half the things I do now when I was a kid because I had no patience to understand the underlying technology, nor to take my time to perform the repairs. So, I now take great joy in being able to understand and operate in this "yester-tech" environment because it gives me satisfaction to finally master it as it was designed to operate, warts and all. 

Oh, about the "sir" thing; I was enlisted (true) so you don't have to call me "sir"!

I hear you Norm. I like to up date things to a certain degree, but... it needs to blend nicely with the originality of the car and look somewhat thought out. I went with Fitech fuel injection but used the stock breather with an adapter from Russ. (By the way his adapter is the strongest I've seen in various internet searches) I kept the original radio but added a derale shroud and twin electric fans with variable speed control. God I love the sound of those things. I'm looking for a little better performance and fuel mileage. To tell you what kind of nut i am i also added in a charcoal canister and have a sealed fuel system. No vapors or pollutants now. 

Let us know of any updates Sir.

Thanks for the heads-up.

Actually, I'm what you'd call a "Strict Constructionist" so I'm ok with rebuilding what originally came with the car. Everything usually fits better, too.

There is a replacement transducer being produced for around 80 I think. It's off of a 1970s Cadillac and is much shorter and better design. Works exactly like the original one. Joe on this forum uses one on his car

Comment by Norman Silverman on October 10, 2018 at 2:35pm

Update: I sent my Power module and a spare Transducer in to Classic Auto Air in Florida. Rebuilding BOTH parts comes to around $200. Hopefully, the hurricane won't hit them and I'll get my stuff back in about 2 weeks, working like new. Fingers crossed.

I won't tell you how old I am, but I will tell you that when I hear the word "NIKE" I think of a missile, not a shoe. (google it)

Comment by Clovis on September 30, 2018 at 10:38pm

Good God how old are you? You owned two 65's that didn't need work? You and Tony must have both been in grade school at the same time. 

I was a special child and graduated the highest in my class..... by a good two feet. LOL

It was a moment of triumph (I hope). I very much enjoy the comments, encouragement, knowledge (and even the occasional ribbing) from members. While I have had lots of Caddies with Comfortron (2 65's; 3 66's; 2 67's; 2 68's) I owned them mostly long ago, when the Comfortron systems worked perfectly, so the most I ever had to do was on one of my 67's where removing the vacuum restrictor restored operations to new. More on this project when I have it to report.

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…


Thank you Kurt re: VIN location

I just wanted to say a thank you to Kurt for steering me to the tech tips page on V.I.N. locations.  Excellent information.  Thanks a bundle.

V.I.N. where?

Posted by Robert Pellow on April 18, 2021 at 1:41pm 6 Comments

Where can I find the V.I.N. on a 63 convertible?  The usual space at the base of the interior windshield on the driver's side has been decimated by weather.

63 Trunk detail

Posted by Bob Pontius on April 8, 2021 at 3:07pm 6 Comments

Jason, I liked the detail and information you have provided. I would like to do mine similar to yours. Can you help? Do you have trunk material? OPGI is sending the trunk product for my 63 Fleetwood. But it does cover the entire trunk as yours was done. If you do not have can you give me a reference? Thanks!! Bob
