Hey Canadiankid . Im still trying to put wires and vacume lines back hope I can get it all right. Im sure glad to have guys like Lux and Angela to ask questions, those guys know there caddys. Mine wouldnt be running yet without them. I also put a manual choke 750 cfm Edelbrock carb on, this dosnt help vacume line hunting. I also have a electrical device on the drivers side of transmission that I cant find a wire for? Im going for the first test drive tomarrow probally wont shift? Who knows. Anyway we have great taste in classic cars . Good Luck with your classic machine.
Sorry to disappoint you,I'm not a "guy"...Unless you call everyone "Guy"...And I grew up and lived most of my life in Brooklyn N.Y. ,where EVERYBODY says " FUGGETABOWDIT"..(I'm still guilty of saying it)
Sorry Angela, I guess I just assumed you were a guy. I really feel like an ass. I hope your not mad. I really appreciate all the help you gave me. I took the caddy for a test drive today, the engine ran like a champ- but the car haddent been driven in so long the front wheel locked up. went through the tire and the spair. Going to buy all new brake parts as soon as my funds come together. I also have a leeking power steering hose. But it felt great to go out in wind even with all the little problems. P.S. are you hot!!
Angela- hey your hot , look like Goldie Hawn, can fix cars, like caddys, and can kick ass as a boxer. You Are The Greatest Women In The World! To bad your married. I used to box a little here in Indianapolis- wasnt a pro-but it was alot of fun= when I won. HELL YA!! U THE GREATEST.
That's a damn good question; in this case, I think if it's in the 115 range it should be OK. I believe it's more important that they are all in the same area, as long as it's not stupid low, like 70PSI or something. If they were all 70PSI I'd guess it was a blown head gasket....Naturally, if the comp. ratio is high, the PSI will be high, but I don't know if there is a mathimatical equation for figuring PSI from the comp. ratio. I'll e-mail someone I know that's a whiz with auto-math and see if there is one.
I can't help Voodoo with the pics, I'm computer illiterate, but i did get an answer for Catman. There is no exact formula because there are too many variables, like cranking speed of the engine, oil pressure at cranking speed, cam duration, etc... Generally, stock motors are around 100PSI, slightly modified 110 to 140, all out motors can be over 140 and I was told it's been seen as high as 240PSI...So it's more important That they be fairly even between cylinders and nothing more than 10 or 20PSI different in a cylinder from the other cylinders, which is pretty much what I thought in the first place. Hope that helps you a little
