I can't spot the traditional evaporator box drain tube on my '64 Deville.  I don't like how the water runs down the body line.  Is there an integrated drain tube?  If not, has anybody added…Continue

"Yes I saw his post.  Pretty sure shipping of a trans would be a deal breaker and as I stated in my post I already have a trusted rebuilder.  It's a turbo 400 so shouldn't be too complex lol."

My '64 CDV is starting to have torque converter issues.  I'm going to pull the trans and send it to a shop I trust.  Even thought I don't have any trans issues (except for a leak at the modulator) I'm going to ask them to give the trans a freshening up. Any tips or upgrades you can suggest while they've got it?  I'm going to have them keep it stock, no shift kits, etc.  While it's out I'll be changing the rear main and oil pan gasket so tips on that are appreciated to!See More

Tosh,congrats on the Caddy. There is a lot of help out there. Ruby is now in Buckeye,AZ. We winter here and 5/W up in the NW.  I should have been able to find more time by now, but the list on what to do next is still long. "She" just left Eugene late last year.

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…
