    Just got a 68 Cadillac Deville

    Hey just got a 68 cadillac deville and love it so far. My question is I was looking for a Hanes manual or something like that for my 68 which explains what oil to use, how much, and other important info about the car. I had no luck searching so I was hoping you guys would have some idea. Thanks.

    Get this:

    http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/1968-...sQ5fLiterature

    Or you could get a Chilton's manual that covers all Cadillacs from 1967 thru 1989, but is nowhere near as good.

    I have the Chilton's 1967-1984 manual and the Hayne's 1970-1993 manuals if you are interested!

    Modern oils do not have the additives for older motors with flat tappet cams.. to keep your cam happy you need a additive or get a racing oil with the additive.. Valvoline VR1 is one that does have it in it.. This is very important not to destroy your cam...

    Check out the RWD forums FAQ, there's a huge thread in there about what kind of oil to use in your old school Cadillac.

    And as always:

    That is the direct link to the oil discussions (I think). Go to the RWD Forum, and at the top, you will see Sticky: The RWD FAQ and Tech Info, in there, jayoldschool has posted links to the good stuff, like that particular thread about oil.
