Help a couple in their 80s with a Cadillac???

Posted on March 7, 2014 at 12:16am 0 Comments

There is a couple in their 80s about ready to celibrate their 50th wedding anaversery. Their son saw my 63 Cadillac in San Diego and he is trying to find a 1960-1964 Cadillac in Las Vegas in the spring for a ride.  Why? It seems these couple had a 1962 Cadillac when they were married 50 years ago. The son wants to do something nice for them and find “the car” to take them to a nice dinner or show.

 

If you have a nice Cadillac in Vegas, I would like to connect you…

Heater core replacement

Posted on December 15, 2013 at 11:31am 4 Comments

Does anybody have a detailed set of instructions on how the heater core comes out??? 

Is this from the inside on the car (disassemble the dash?) or from the engine compartment??

Transmission swap on a 1963

Posted on June 28, 2013 at 3:05am 1 Comment

My Jetaway in my 1963 convertible is giving me problems....again.  It has 10K on a rebuild.  The transmission has been a problem some years and I have a lot of money into it.  I have not found a good transmission guy, so I am thinking.

Does anybody have specific parts and instructions for a 700R transplant??  I am thinking that I might just get rid of the Jetaway and the headaches from the thing.

Any Ideas???

Hi

After cleaning these switches several times, I need to give up on this switches. I understand there are some options (none of which I have used).  I understand

3. A Mercedes 1999-2000 CLK430 switch (square) WO133-1893249

These are all 3-pole switches.  I would…

'63 Eldorado trumpet horn + 2 standard horns restoration

Posted by Les Eastling on November 15, 2023 at 10:34am 1 Comment

My son, unbeknownst to me, had all three of the horns on our 1963 Eldorado completely restored. We had recently added the Eldorado trumpet horn to the two standard horns and the sound was not very good... we had heard good ones so we knew something was not right... but there was not much we could do to get better sound from the 3 horns. 

There is a restoration service called The Horn Works who my son…

Here it is:

 

The main factor is the length of the ceramic insulator from the middle of the spark plug to the tip (where the spark happens)  

The insulator…
