Sorry for my confusion about the trans that came stock in your Sedan

"1964 Sedan de Ville came with Turbo Hydra-Matic with PRNDL Shift pattern and had 11 qt 6 oz capacity (see page 2-10 in shop manual), indicates 11 qt capacity and about 30 from top of cap to tip so all sounds correct to me.For reference the…"
"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…"

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

Hello everyone. I had a perfectly good shifting Hydra-Matic transmission until I elected to fix the leak at the dip stick tube. I just did a quick seal with gasket maker since my current tube is…Continue
Hi everyone, ever since getting the car back on the road, the rear brakes grab when they are cold and I’m moving at slow speed. Once I get along the road and stop they are fine. I see some posts…Continue
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…

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.
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…
