I am looking for a functioning heat riser valve and a cruise control for a 1964 Cadillac.In principle, the heat riser flap does not have to work. It is only important that the spacer / housing is not broken or has a crack.Cruise control does not have to work 100% either.

correct size of vacuum hose turbo hydramatic

Posted on November 2, 2014 at 5:19pm 2 Comments

I'm pretty sure anybody here knows the correct size of inner diameter of the rubber vacuum hose from the metal vacuum line to the vacuum modulator assembly? Mine is the original one, too old and does have several cracks now. Now the gear is not shifting anymore or let's say at too high rpm.

I don't have my car around me currently. So unfortunately I can't have a look by myself! :(

Hey guys,

hope you can help me one more.

I'm wondering how the correct wiring of the AC-compressor ground should be. If you do it like in the original shop manual on page 13-45 (Fig. 13-32, marked red), the compressor does not have any contact to the…

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.

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…
