Correct strut rod bushings replacement

Posted on October 29, 2015 at 8:41pm 5 Comments

A quick question. Is there a difference in the bushing design from the 63-64 vs the 65 on up Cadillacs?

I am in need of some bushings and I've looked on RockAuto, and OPG, but I am confused because on the OPG website it list the bushings being the same for a 61 all the way up to a 76 Cadillac.

Caddy Daddy is insanely expensive and overpriced, so I am looking for alternatives.

Can I use the MOOG bushings part # K5184 for the 64?

Thanks.

I think my 64 has a 65 engine and trans combo in it? Help!

Hello everybody, well this has been an interesting journy. I am still trying to figure out why I am getting a vibration at the flywheel area, I suspected something was replaced so this lead me to look at the transmission ID # on the side of the trans, including the engine itself. I can't believe it took me this long to figure it out, but the ID # on the trans is AA-65, and the 429 engine has to be out of a 65 as the water pump lower hose outlet connector goes to the passenger side of the…

Anyone have a spare flywheel cover for a 64 with a TH?

Exactly what the title says. Mine is missing, and I really don't like the flywheel being exposed as rocks and debris can damage it.

Thanks!!

Oil pan has been cut and welded back together, Why?

Posted on July 24, 2015 at 12:30pm 0 Comments

For some reason I just barely noticed this last night while under the car. It looks like someone removed the oil pan once before, and decided to cut it. I see the weld marking going all around the pan. 

Why would anybody do this?
