Say Hi / Re: 1973 cadillac coupe de ville
« Last post by Bruce Reynolds on November 20, 2019, 10:36:39 PM »
G'day from a dark Lindisfarne.

The parking brake is released manually by a small lever that sits just under the dash, on the left side.

These cars have an automatic park brake release that operates via Vacuum when the engine is running, and the gear lever moved out of Park.

If you look up under the dash, behind and underneath the area of the headlight switch, you will see the lever.   It looks like it is parallel to the bottom of the dash, and only requires fingers to pull it backwards, and the pedal releases.

If you can't find it, I will get a picture of it in the morning.

Is there anyone in Melbourne who could help me with the car above, 
We cannot get the handbrake off which I understand is linked to getting it into gear.
Cadillac Chat Room / Current status of Automotive Technologies

Hi all,

I thought I should post and bring you up to date as to the current status of Automotive Technologies of Australia (based in Ballarat Vic.).
Following a number of changes within the industry and some unfortunate events (not the least being the loss of our excellent website) I came to the decision last year that it was no longer viable to run our business on a full time basis importing and distributing restoration parts for American produced vehicles now residing in Australia.
I've been working a regular day job since, and still operating the business part time after hours. I intend to continue operating this way into the future, but can no longer justify carrying the vast range of products that we have in the past. As a result of this, a lot of the more obscure items I have will not be replaced once sold. Please feel free to contact me (email is best and I can forward a list to you covering the parts I have in stock to suit your car/cars. Keep in mind that a lot of the items I have on the shelf were purchased some years ago and hence will probably be cheaper than importing them from the U.S.A. with today's prices, $AU conversion, and sometimes exorbitant shipping costs.
I'd like to also take this opportunity to thank all members of the Cadillac - LaSalle club who've supported us over the years. Rest assured that it hasn't gone unnoticed.
Best contact number for me going forward is the mobile 0409 174 398. Please be prepared to leave a message as I don't always have access to my phone during regular working hours.

Kind regards,
Arnold Millane
Automotive Technologies of Australia.

G'day Jay,

Welcome to the world of Cadillac ownership, and what a wonderful and exclusive Cadillac to join with.

Hope it doesn't need too much, as these Broughams are pretty exclusive, and share very little with same year Cadillacs.

My Name is Jay Ginevra from Wangaratta North East Victoria.

I own Cadillac Eldorado Brougham Builder No# 70

Doesn't sound like a good event to me.

Wipers should turn on the instant that voltage is applied.

Could it be that your grounds require total cleaning and reattaching?   Or, for that matter, all your electrical contacts need cleaning.

This is one case where I would be having a qualified Automotive Electrician having a look.

I take it you have the Shop Manual for 1959?   This describes how it all works.   Plus testing procedures.

Bruce. :devil:

PS.   When I first got my '60 CDV, the wipers turned on, but wouldn't turn off, not for a long time, but eventually did.   Turned out to be a piece of rubber tubing in the Parking mechanism that was there to be a stop, but had broken in two, and wasn't doing its' job..
Any one know what the problem is
