I'm thinking about replacing my A6 compressor with one of these. My A/C cools fine but the A6 has a tendency to sling oil from the shaft seal which makes a mess. Is this Pro6ten compressor really as "drop in" as they say? Same mounting, hoses, etc?

Kurt I bought the compressor from OPGI, it works very good.

Hi Eric, what kind of A/C compressor is that?

Paul I have the Holley EFI on my Pontiac,  it’s not the sniper  it’s the full system and I like the FI TECH better

Hi Eric I’m restoring a 63 Fleetwood Sixty Special in New Zealand running a rebuilt 390

My mechanic said I should look at fitting the Holley Sniper EFI system but your one looks good and by the reviews seems to perform well too and cheaper than the Holley.Is that the standard Cadillac manifold and can you give me tips on what linkages I need and what’s the canister model?

appreciate the advice not many 63 Caddy experts in New Zealand!

cheers Paul

I don't think it's the best idea to drill into a head and tap it. If you look in my thread about emissions you can see the inline rad hose adapter I use for the thermally ativates vacuum switch. It came with a 1/4" hole but I drilled and tapped it for 3/8" pipe. Just a few buck on Amazon.

Thanks Eric.  I want my factory gauge to work so I'll have to find another place for that sensor.

Clovis, I asked the question because I had been looking around my engine for a spare plugged off factory hole and wondered if Eric found one.  Looks like Cadillac only gave us one tapped coolant passage and used it for the dash gauge.  After I convert and the car is tuned, I'll be unplugging the handheld computer and using the factory gauge, so I'll need to make another hole.  I'll probably either tee off the hose fitting on the back of the crossover tube or drill and tap a new hole on the opposite cylinder head.

Anyway, yeah, this isn't my first.  I do all my own work except bodywork and upholstery.  I've converted several cars to EFI but this is my first Cadillac.  I'll have mine completely apart as well for a complete under-hood restoration.  No worries, just planning my attack!  LOL.

I'll check out your posts, thanks!

Micheal are you a hands on guy when it comes to your car? Have you ever done major work such as this? I ask these questions because this is not a simple installation. Tuning it is also not so simple either. If you've done this before jump right in with both feet as it's very rewarding.
Your questions about the temperature sending unit tells me this may be a bigger project, automotive wise, than you've ever tackled before. I highly suggest you find a reputable shop that has done at least two of these installs before. I eat sleep and live for this kind of stuff all my life so I didn't even bat an eye when it came time to do it. Since everything was apart I also detailed the engine compartment and totally went through the comfort control system. I also rewired and added electric fans. This was done simultaneously with the efi install.
If you are thinking about doing it still read my posts, there are several, on the efi and comfort control installs. Happy building sir.

HVAC Vacuum Valve Clip-need the one for the Power Control side

Posted by Norman Silverman on September 17, 2018 at 8:15pm 6 Comments

Hi.

Update:

I removed both 7 nipple vacuum valves and called my buddy who owns a machine shop. Tomorrow we'll re-surface the valve faces and then I'll reinstall them. HOWEVER, the one that comes out easily and comes apart with no rivet is on the Power module side. It installs on one side with a small bolt, and on the other it is held on by a clip, WHICH IS MISSING ON MY CAR. I am going to assume it is the same clip that is used on the Control Module side. Anybody got one? Happy…

7 vacuum valve-need a good one or someone to recondition mine

Posted by Norman Silverman on September 15, 2018 at 5:44pm 12 Comments

So, I've put my 7 vacuum valve from the control head side to the test, and it failed. I looked at the instructions for re-conditioning it and unless I am missing something, the instructions are missing something (about how to take off the clip that provides the tension that holds the two pieces together). 

In any case, I can't do this particular repair so I am looking for a new valve (not likely), or a good re-conditioned one, or someone who has done this before and would do mine for…
