    Cars don't talk back they're just four wheeled friends now

    Hi:

    I was going through a few google image searches for information on the intake manifold for my car and found this site.
    I was pleased with the thread I happened upon because unlike that other Cadillac forum real and useful help was offered to the poster.

    I just got finished fighting with the removal of my waterpump housing\manifold in order to replace a blown forst plug.
    Man it sucks to forget a thing like anti-freeze in November!

    Anyway in order to get the car mobile I had to see if there was any major damage tot he engine which required replacement of the plug. The one that sits behind the pump thankfully! I cannot imagine to sorrow of another being gone as I assume it would require the front cassette assembly of the car to be removed.

    In for a penny in for a pound as they say.

    No matter I love this car and can turn a wrench with some skill. But this thing was hard to remove. I cannot imagine putting it back together but that bridge must be crossed after a new plug is installed.

    It is always nice to wrench on old cars and find all the malfeasant and idiotic thing that POs have done ( or previous shortcut, quick buck mechanics ) I do not know how the car contained its coolant as the seals were nearly dead. They must have gotten cooked in a major overheating once upon a time for they could never be re-used.

    People think I am quite mad and say I should pay to have it hauled away but when I drive it "Radar Love" plays in my head and Honda Civic tuner kiddies cower in the wake of my disdain for them and for environmentalists.

    just doing cursory searches has yielded so much on this site. The links to suspension components to replace the prohibitively expensive OEM bits is fabulous.

    So howdy. I know I need the manual but it would cost more than I paid for the car.
    1500 for a dream.

    You'd be surprised how cheap the manuals are on eBay. I found the one for my wagon for like $8. Give it a shot!

    Welcome to the forums. Post some pics.

    ebay is your friend for manuals. the one for my caddy fwb cost me $15 shipped.
    just type in factory service manual and the year and model for your car and see what comes up. if that doesnt work, look for a manual for the year before or after your car was made.

    I will take some pictures. it is dark and may be raining but you will get to see my redneck mayhem.
    I need to disconnect the fuel line to do a full removal. I just needed the intake out of the way to get to the coolant manifold.
    It is actually embarassing but I am a redneck.[Frost Plug gone.JPG

    I notice a bit of orange sealant on the bolt threads 9 this may be normal ) but the stuff on the seals should not be there, at least i do not think so.

    Actually the price on the manual depends on the make of the car. One for my Fleetwood was $15. One for my Toyota truck was $100, that was the cheapest I could find it anywhere. F that noise, damn truck is a flinstones-mobile compared to the complexity of a Cadillac.

    Anyways, welcome, and I hope you have your Caddy back on the road soon!

    Yeah, just depends on how lucky you get on any given day.

    Still worth a look.

    Well that took a lot longer than I thought it would. Two years is a long time to wait and I am thinking maybe some mice may have set up house in the block.
    I am finally in the process of getting around to Dis Connecting the fuel lines. I think I had a lot on the go and lost track of things.

    Anyway its odd serendipity in that Rock Auto sent me a link to close out sales for my car.

    I have a really good memory but would really benefit from any photo essays members have made of their engine bays.

    Welcome! Glad you like the Caddy

    Go check out the Northstar engine section. Plenty of engine bay goodies over there.
