  1. Here in Saskatchewan, we can also check online for availability. I've been considering a few new ones, but this is what I'm running now. Plain and simple, I'm curious to see what others came up with.
  2. During the restoration, The speedometer cable was installed without an insert. When we finally got around to putting a new insert in, we apparently cut and crimped it too short. This resulted in a lot of noise from the speedo head, so I disconnected it at the transmission end. I finally got around to installing a whole new cable that I had purchased from CARS a number of years ago ( SC612-4 ). The new cable assembly is about 4 3/4" longer than stock. This doesn't seem to be an issue, it routed just fine between the body and frame. I had removed the dash pad thinking that would help in the
  3. https://www.griotsgarage.com/product/odor+exterminator.do?sortby=ourPicks&from=Search "eco-friendly" Chlorine Dioxide vapors. It worked well, roll up windows, open package and let it sit overnight. Seemed to eliminate the odors, not just mask them.
  4. This is a picture I took on August 26,2019. Put a few miles on this summer, still a work in progress.
  5. It just so happens that mine is still up on jack stands. Here is a picture of the filler plug with 3/4" Hex head and tag ""Limited Slip Diff Lube Only " Or something close to that.
  6. After much frustration and ordering the wrong part (once), It seems I found the correct part. This is the rubber flocked seal that goes against the side windows in the channel of the vent window. NOT the vent window seal itself !!! I ordered a set from RTRW and I mistakenly ordered the part for "full size" Buicks.That was part # 10-021X. It appears that RTRW correct part number for 63-65 Riviera is 10-047X. From RTRW Flocked Division Channel Seal - Includes Bumpers For Vent Frame PART #:10-047X THIS PRODUCT FITS 1963-65 Riviera -----------------------
  7. Here in Saskatchewan, we are in the midst of a record setting cold spell. " Prince Albert broke a -42.8 C record that was set in 1899, with a new record of -44.8. Coronach was the coldest place in the province, setting a new weather record of -46.5 C. That broke a record of -41 C set in 1994 " Even though it is a record, we are not unaccustomed to frigid temperatures. We dress warmly when we go out to shovel the latest 6" dump of snow! -40 degress Celsius is equal to 40 below fahrenheit. This is a picture of my truck thermometer last week - Cheers!
  8. I received this same kit from Mr. G's for my 65. It is very handy to have all the screws available at your fingertips. Previously, I was scouring through bins and buckets and coffee cans to find the right fastener. Occasionally, a substitute was used, now I can identify and replace those with the correct screw! Nice people to deal with as well! Peter Hoemsen ROA # 6910
  9. This was my first Riviera GS, purchased from Bill in Auburn, NY in January 1999. This is the picture I took of the two of them before I drove it home. I sold that car in 2010, this is the transport driver loading it up. There were 3 other vehicles in the van, a Ferrari, Lamborghini and a 55 chevy pickup - all RED!
  10. Thanks,Tom. In the bible, they refer to it as the "Heater-Air conditioner diaphragm". But you're right, it diverts the air from either the evaporator core, through the vents, or across the heater core, in conjunction with the "Heater temperature door". I was wondering about the reliability of the vacuum system itself. The 2 "plugs" that connect to the temperature controller seem pliable and soft, which should mean a good flow of vacuum. But, as we know, any minor leak will prevent the devices from working as they should. It must be a good systrem, I do not recall a lot of comments as to troub
  11. Decided to tackle a couple of issues. The vacuum line to the hot water valve needed replacing, so I ran a new one back to the "Heater Vacuum Disc" switch mounted on the temperature controller. The actuator for the "Heater/Evaporator" door has a broken vacuum connection, so I ordered a new one from Old Air.It will be interesting to see if these components function as they should after the repairs. How reliable are the old vacuum controls for our HVAC systems? There are many more important things that require attention on my car, but this seemed like a nice place to start. I had forgotten h

  13. Pretty impressive array of early 60's automobiles.
