SMS Wrong material problem.

Last year SMS had a 25% off sale.  Knowing that I was going to recover my seats I ordered material for them. I had order materials to do the door panels 3 years ago and they had my folder with a sample of what they sold me. Well I went to recover the seats and opened up the material to find it to be wrong. The receipt clearly stamp to “check material for correctness with in five days”.  Now I need to find out what year and color I have so I may resell it.  Ideas or help? Thanks DaveSee More

Righthand Passenger Mirror 1961-64 Original OEM

Posted on December 5, 2013 at 9:49am 0 Comments

This is a very hard to find part. The number is 5954511. I have not seen one on eBay for a year. It is NOT a reproduction! It has 50+ years of use. If you are restoring a car include this original Cadillac Mirror. Look closes at all photos and ask for more if need. The glass mirror has scratches. Chrome missing on base. Stem has pits. Shine mirror back with tiny rock dent. Only buy this mirror if you are going to restore it or you understand the condition! I was told its off a 64.…

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

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…
