"I would double the gasket thickness ( two thin or two thick gaskets both sides ) and see if that would stop the vacuum leak — as you know you manifold or head matching surfaces  are somewhat irregular from your matting  paint…"

Intake Manifold air leak

some of you might remember the air sucking issue i experienced last fall, i went thru 3 intake gasket sets and even with the thick ones from Best Gaskets (14046 E), it still sucked air. not as much as with the thin metal ones, but enough that the engine would stall when brake cleaner sprayed on between manifold and cyl.head.now, i took the manifold down again, cleaned the surfaces and mounted it without gaskets but with marking paint on the head side.you can now clearly see that the 2 surfaces…See More

Roland Moser replied to Richard McBurney's discussion Vapor Lock and how to fix it?

Roland Moser replied to Richard McBurney's discussion Vapor Lock and how to fix it?

I need to know where the thumb or finger position is located through the grille. Is it above or below the center grille molding piece? Mine seems to be positioned behind the center molding piece and will not adjust above or below the molding. I have a wire tied to it to release it…

Caddy members, I’m upgrading my 64 2-door coupe deville.

motor guy lost my block (machine shop went under) so I’m replacing motor & tranny with LS conversion. I have motor parts (other than block) for 429, rebuilt transmission, converter, and too many other motor parts not needed with fully dressed LS going in.

Email me (Tom.reichenberger@ipsper.com) or call me (210-739-4854) if you’re interested…..I live in San Antonio, TX.

thanks, TX…

Trunk Open and Lock Mechanism is in Closed Position

Posted by Chris Anderson on September 13, 2022 at 7:14pm 7 Comments

While working on my trunk lock on 64 Cadillac, I mistakenly closed the locking mechanism while the trunk was open.  Is there an easy way to manually release the lock back to the open position?

Thanks.
