I picked up a 64 Sedan DeVille, which had sat since 2006 before getting aquired by a dealer this year. Dealer said car started right up but got no oil pressure, so he shut it down and brought it to his mechanic, who opened the oil pump cover and said front cover was shot.
So, I got the car prepared to swap in a running 429 I have. Upon getting the car, I see that it has a new looking water pump, fresh silicone squeezing out of water pump and front cover, engine oil is clean as is filter. Hmm I say, I do a quick compression check and get 185 to 225 psi. Seems like a healthy engine, I plan to put new oil pump in and see what happens.
I pull the front cover and this is what I found, globs of silicone and the oil passage from the oil pan pickup plugged! So some hack had changed the water pump and re-installed the front cover using 2 tubes of silicone, fired the car up and had no oil pressure and then the car sat that way for 12 years.
Now i've got a picture stuck in my head of Tony in the back seat of his car.....naked! Time for my pills.
Tony would look like 250lbs of dynamite with a half inch fuse. PMSL :-)
LOL.............You'll definitely get a reaction from onlookers while you're naked in the back seat with your cloths off with the doors open and it will have nothing to do with the car!
