Another year went by, and I still haven't gotten around to touching my 64 Eldorado.     I don't think anymore that I ever will.  So after the year turns, I'm gonna try and sell it.   Not sad though,…Continue

"I forget,  but it can only go one way, which is the way that it fits the notch in the pan gasket.follow up question... did you use a little bit of RTV where the pan side gasket meets this seal?"

"Yes, that seal is correct and not the cause of your leak from what I can see.  Can you take a pic of the other half.  See how much faster you're moving now?  gaining valuable experience here."

"The motor spins clockwise, so as it comes out of the main seal, it would tend to be pushed to the starter side as it hits the spinning flywheel.    I don't see a reason it would leak so much if the seal went in undamaged.  I…"

"I don't think it's special, it may come with the filter.  But i'm not sure, I actually haven't built a Hydramatic in over twenty years so i'm working from memory on most of my explanations.    If you can get a…"

Mark S Anderson replied to Robert Tor's discussion Hydra-Matic with some problems
"i misspoke. you can't adjust the band on the jetaway, apparently.  It can be done on the th400 by changing the length of the pin, but this isn't really too important, since it's only for overrun.  It may still even work,…"

Mark S Anderson replied to Robert Tor's discussion Hydra-Matic with some problems
"Russ, have a look at the video on youtube, it's very clearly a hydramatic.  You can see the band from the bottom which, on a th400, you'd see the valve body only, and also you can see in the vid that it has a square pan, a separate…"

Mark S Anderson replied to Robert Tor's discussion Hydra-Matic with some problems
"I looked at the video, and the black 'material' is friction clutch or metal, showing some internal wear.The band is indeed loose, and probably contributed some of the material at the bottom of the pan, but that can be easily adjusted, and…"

"the slits won't wear the bearings, the engine wasn't supposed to last 157,000 miles, 100,000 was a huge milestone for the engines of that era, and usually they run down by then.  It's just old.    Luckily, the main…"

Radio Belts

Posted on January 22, 2017 at 11:20am 10 Comments

I just finished repairing a few 66 stereos, and after fixing up the circuits to make them play again (another discussion), I was left with the usual problem; trying to find a belt that wouldn't slip.

I've tried:

  • 'glue together' kits -- they can break off at any time, so no-go.
  • rubber dial belts available online -- they stretch and…

Just getting started on a new set of seat covers, this is as far as I made it last night.    Only using vinyl, but perforations are pretty similar, and I'll have the patterns made for a leather copy later on.   I'll post pics up as I go forward.

baku wood

Posted on July 18, 2014 at 9:17pm 10 Comments

So I bought a sheet of paper backed makore (baku) veneer to redo the wood on my 64.  It seems like the original has a urethane clear coat.  What's everybody using for a final finish?   I have plenty extra to play with, I think I want to start with an automotive clear urethane, but what is the norm?   It says "hand-rubbed in the advertising, which would lead me to think it was lacquer, but lacquer thinner tests make me think they used urethane.  

Glue suggestions would also help, I'm…

Dash removal

Posted by Jake Mickley on October 9, 2019 at 12:06am 9 Comments

Hello everyone,

On a 63 CDV, if a guy wanted to remove the entire dash to get all the metal painted, and do some other things behind there, how would he go about doing that?  I checked here and the shop manual, but can't find a complete guide.

As always, and help or direction is appreciated.  Thanks!

Thanks for letting me join the club.  Picked up this ‘64 Coupe Deville a few months ago out of Beverly MA, the car has few stickers on it from various Cadillac clubs, didn’t know if anyone might recognize it from it’s “Glory days.” Everything seems pretty healthy except for the body and some very Mickey Mouse repairs, was wondering if anyone had any leads on…
