    Fellow 368 6.0 motor guys - i need your help!

    I recently acquired a beautiful 1980 Eldorado- the 6.0 engine was all taken apart and I have been scratching my head all day trying to figure out how to put all the different brackets & pumps back on. I have the book and have been searching on the web but they only have pictures of the engine bay from far away so I cant really see how everything bolts on - If anyone with this motor has any pics of the engine bay or any diagrams that they could post up here it would be awesome and help me out a whole lot! Thanks in advance & God Bless!

    hey, would it be the same for a coupe deville with the same engine? I got diagrams at home in my service manual and of course I can take pics of my engine. Hopefully there are the same as far as brackets and stuff. I'll get to ya on this tomorrow. Thanks
    PS it should have diagrams of this engine in an El Dorado in my service manual.
