"it sounds like it's a TH400, by the shift quadrant and the stick, so go with that. all the Devilles in 64 came with the Turbo 400, so if your car is a Sedan Deville and not a 62 series, it's correct.   The easy ways to tell the…"

"Firstly thank you It is the th400 from my knowledge. Gear selector is PRNDL. The dipstick is as you described 30” and says 11 Qrts."

Russ Austin replied to Steven Gaynor's discussion Transmission Dipstick dimensions
"Going to assume you have the Turbo Hydramatic with a PNRDDL gear selector pattern.  The dip stick is 30 inches from the bottom to the top of the cap. It also says 11qts use only cadillac approved transmission fluid. "

Transmission Dipstick dimensions

I recently purchased a 64 Cadillac Sedan Deville and I’m pretty sure the engine oil dipstick and Trans dipstick are not from this car. I have seen the dimensions for the oil dipstick elsewhere in the forums so I’m not incredibly worried about finding that out but for the transmission I have no idea. What leads me to believe the dipsticks are wrong is the trans dipstick says capacity 11quarts and after consulting the shop manual it says capacity is 9 and the engine dipstick shows a lot more oil…See More

1963 series 62 convertible transmission issue

Posted by Matthew VanDeWater on June 22, 2021 at 3:03pm 1 Comment

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. 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…

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…
