  1. Beware: I was contacted through this forum by a member named EVAN 1 that I should contact robertsmith71859@gmail.com in Montana, since he supposedly has the parts I wanted. Made contact with him and he confirmed that he had the parts. Paid through PayPal to tammyhadley44@gmail.com and have since then not heard from him anymore. I placed a fraudulent complaint with PayPal since I expect EVAN 1, Robert and Tammy being the same person. If anyone has heard from them before, please let me know.
  2. I am looking for the under dash map/courtesy lights for a 1958 Buick Roadmaster. 1957 should fit as well. Those are two lights (one on drivers side and one on passenger side). Thanks, Chris
  3. Hello retiredmechanic74, I couldn't find anything about decarbonation in the AACA forum, but I found some videos on YouTube. Some poured Seafoam, some poured Mystery Marvel Oil and some just plain water into the intake system. It seems like a pretty radical procedure, especially when using water - at least the smoke coming out of the tailpipe would not be more poisonous with water than your normal exhaust. I see your point though, especially since I had to replace my fouled plugs before due to damaged/missing valve stem seals. I am just concerned adding water into the interio
  4. Hi guys, Thank you for the feedback. I think I'll start with the easy ones first: I will have the battery checked first. If that doesn't solve it, I will check the wires and contacts, making sure all connectors are clean. And if that doesn't do it, I will replace the starter with a spare unit. Chris
  5. Hi everyone, I have a starting issues with my 1958 Cadillac and was wondering if anyone had this problem before. First of all, I don't think it's Cadillac specific, but more a general problem. When I start the car in cold state, the starter and battery have enough power to crank the engine until it starts. However, if I stop briefly (like for filling up the tank) after the engine is hot, the starter barely manages it to turn the engine over. It sounds/feels like the battery is empty. When I do get it started again and go to a show for example, shut it off and let the engine cool
