For anyone looking for the original style spring ring cables the correct length, I do have an extra set of these cables on hand and would remove the lower ground strap that attaches to bottom of negative cable and bolts to radiator support from an original cable and attached to the "69 Camaro spring ring cable as I did) making a correct fitting set for $125 + s/h.

Many use those incorrect bolt terminal battery cables and have to say a correct looking spring ring terminal able really makes a difference if you want you Caddy to look original and stand out. I was in a large arena with probably 75+ "Classics" and as best I could tell, I was the only one with the correct battery cables.    They are also far easier to remove and installed. Just take a channel lock and open to 2nd grove and clamp end together and it goes on and off as quickly as you can squeeze the pliers.  If interested in my one extra set of cables shoot me an email to jasonedge@nc.rr.com

 I will post the transfer of the battery cable negative ground strap sometime in the future as an addendum to the article.  

Covering all ground straps would be a good separate topic as there are at least a half dozen or more in the engine compartment alone.  This "tech tip" focuses on the battery and battery cable.

A picture of the starter ground strap and the other ground  straps  locations would be great , as some may have been removed over the years , and we often have the ground strap location question come up from time to time on this site

I want to go back and add a couple pictures installing the small ground strap at bottom of Negative cable. For anyone looking for this setup for their 63/64, I ordered a 2nd set of the correct length 69 Camaro cables and will add that ground strap to bottom and put up for sale. Shoot me an email at jasonedge@nc.rr.com if interested.

Hey guys hope you’re having a great day. I have a question about the choke heater tube. Mine is loose at the intake and seems to be causing a vacuum leak. Any thoughts on how to seal this up?

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

Hello!

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…
