  1. That's always a good sign! I once purchased 1967 corvette 427 roadster with a wrecked front end for $950. and before I left the seller house I was offered twice the amount. I didn't sell it!
  2. I have a 24" Delco-Remy Type S 12v Trumpet Horn. The number stamped on it is 946. I know a 945 and a 947 are Cadillacs. But what is a 946 from? Thanks Dave
  3. Ask here. http://midcenturycadillacs.com/index.php
  4. I had the same problem. New fuel pump 2 years ago. Last year the pin that hold the arm in backed out and no fuel. Drove the pin back in and staked it. Ran fine until last week when it just died. 2,000 miles at the most on it. Chinese crap!

  12. Jim, The 14" horn is stamped with 948. The 24" horn is stamped 949. All the bracket are there. It will be a few week till I can post photos. They have be stored indoors for the last 30 years. Dave
  13. I have a set of 24" and 14" 1963 Buick Rivera trumpet horn. They work well and have the brackets. Are they rare? How much are they worth? Thanks Dave
  14. If you want some info go to http://www.cadillaclasalleclub.org Post the photos. Love the tow truck.
  15. I purchased a 1962 Cadillac to use a daily driver. I wanted to remind myself of the goal I have with the car. Dave
  16. This was sold to me as a 1962 Cadillac. It is not that's for sure. But what GM car is it for? Thanks
  17. Yes, take the center bolt out and it should come apart. Might be tight but use a rubber mallet or block of wood. Mark all parts so you may align them back up again.
  18. Ask, Poway Transmission or Pro Gear one of them should do it or know where to send you. Dave
  19. With 4 wheels done and on the road I can report that the car runs great down the freeway at 70+. Most wire wheel restorer don't want you to know how it done. I did purchased the wheel for $50. each intending on driving them as is. I made a close inspection and found a few bent and missing spokes. All were the short spokes. Short spokes seem to be the weak link in 1954-56 Kelsey Hayes Cadillac wire wheels. I had some extra short spoke and tried to do a replacement of the bad spokes. You can not replace the short spokes unless you remove all the spokes as they lock in place. It was not pos
  20. It's been a year when I came up with the idea of 40 spokes on my 62. I have mastered the truing of these rim's. Just took the car out with the new setup and did 75 MPH and as smooth as glass. Now off the the Friday night car show. I will write up a closing statement next week but for now I am on to new things!
  21. I am still working on the wheels! Have 5 back together but still need to be torqued. Have 3 more do to finish the 2 sets.
  22. Yea, what I will do if I have to is take a nut and bolt the same size of my spoke and using my torque wrench and socket. I will set is at 80 inch pounds torque and then use my wrench to check the value and call that 80.
