Steering Gear Leak

Good Afternoon!

I am having a large steering gear leak and was wondering, does anyone have a resource for someone who can replace all the seals reasonably? I could probably do it myself. Has anyone done this? Thanks in advance!

I have been trying to drain the fuel in my tank (just had the carb rebuilt) on my 63 Deville. I cannot for the life of me find a drain plug on the tank. It does have a drain plug correct?

1963 Deville Ignition Conversion

Posted on May 26, 2016 at 3:42am 1 Comment

Hello fellow Cadillac owners! I am wanting to convert the ignition on my Cadillac to electronic ignition. I have heard that this is very difficult with the Delco distributors on the 390. Please let me know if anybody has done this and how hard it would be of a job for me to complete. Also, what brand of kit and coil did you use? Thank you guys!

1963 Cadillac Deville Brake Booster

Posted on October 27, 2015 at 9:35pm 13 Comments

So I got the brakes done on the 63, and went to test them after adjusting them. The pedal went all the way to the floor when driving. I took the vacuum hose off of the power brake booster and pumped the brakes and air was coming out of the vacuum side telling me that the diaphragm is broken. Does anybody have any idea where I can find another booster? Help is appreciated!
