Getting ready to order engine rebuild kit. Has anybody had experience with the master rebuild kit from Kanter. It seems like a fairly comprehensive kit considering I need almost everything including camshaft, valves, valve guides, valve springs and rocker arms. I was just wondering if anyone had any issues with the quality of the parts, or if there was a better way to go. I was also curious to know if anyone has used their performance upgrade camshaft. I will be using a 750 c.f.m. Edelbrock carb and the car has dual exhaust.so I thought I might pick up a little extra performance using that cam over the stock unit. Also will this cam work well with the stock rebuilt valve train components. It is hard to tell since Kanter doesn't give the cam specs in the add. Any and all information would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, Dave.

Jason has posted numerous times of his experience with kanter. Do a search of this site to look for the answer or look into the help section.

Has used the Kanter engine rebuild kit himself and has a complete write up on here about just that
He used the higher performance cam and the 750 Edelbrock so you are in good hands regarding that info

Enjoy

I sourced all parts from Terrill Machine in Texas, Feltz Terrill, owner. He is very knowledgeable about Cadillac engines and parts and other supply houses buy from him. His ad and price list is in Hemmings. Another thing I like about him is when you call, he picks up the phone, responds to orders promptly and is a first class gentleman.

If I was doing a full rebuild I would buy the full kit from EGGE as I have heard that these kits are very good. Kanter do also have good kits. I would not buy an Edelbroke or any other carburetor for that matter. I would send my money to FiTech

We only need the 400 hp unit for our cars. The 600 has timing control but it can't be used with petronix ignition. The 400 hundred also has an a/c input that can be used to set a different idle and control electric fans if I remember correctly.

Air Suspension - How to Choose and Install

Posted by Michael Forte on February 19, 2018 at 10:00pm 8 Comments

What I enjoy most about old cars is that they can be restored to original condition, radically customized, or somewhere between those extremes, reflecting the owner's individual style.  For my '63 Convertible, I want to achieve a mostly original look, with minor custom touches to make it clean, smooth, and low.  This article is to share my experience in choosing and installing the suspension components to achieve a low stance and a comfortable ride.

I purchased my car in August of…

Emblem Removal

Posted by Christopher Belinda on February 19, 2018 at 1:33pm 4 Comments

Good Afternoon - my name is Chris and I'm new to the site (well ... officially; I've read a lot of your posts and am very impressed by the great advice and interest).  I'm working on a very original '63 SDV Park Avenue and am attempting to remove the "Park Avenue" emblems in preparation for a repaint.  Once I carefully removed the truck liner, I noticed that the studs are conical shaped and do not appear to have ever had a speed-nut, or some type of push clip ever installed.  I have removed…

Updating the alternator without losing the "Gen" light

Posted by Michael Forte on February 19, 2018 at 12:00am 8 Comments

Our old Cadillacs have a pretty simple electrical system using an externally regulated alternator to keep the battery charged and run the accessories while driving.  First appearing in 1963, the GM 10DN externally regulated alternator was a step up from the bulky generator used on the '62 and earlier.  But newer, internally regulated alternators are now available that can output three times the current in the same size package.  This article explains how I upgraded my charging system to a…
