    Looking for a SPECIFIC N* Removal Guide

    A little about me:
    I recently purchased a 1997 Deville with a bad headgasket.
    This is the third Caddy I have owned.
    My other two were: 1975 Sedan DeVille (sold in 1999), 1976 Coupe DeVille (sold in 1996).
    I decided it was time to get another Caddy & after a little research, actually started looking for something WITH a blown headgasket (so I could pick something up cheap, then fix it myself).

    While I'm not a mechanic, I was raised on a farm & have wrenched on vehicles my entire life.

    Now on to the reason I'm posting.
    A few months ago while deciding what I wanted to get, I ran across a post that had step-by-step pictures on how to remove the cradle, insert the time-serts, then replace the cradle.
    THAT was the post that made my mind up that I was indeed going to purposely get one that had the bad gaskets.

    Of course, I did not bookmark it & now I can't find it anywhere.
    I have searched my history & looked & looked all over, but I am unable to find it.

    I'm posting to see if anybody has a link to this post.
    I can't even be sure it was on this site, but in searching, this site came up quite consistently, so I decided to join.

    I am looking forward to tearing this apart & having a very nice car, for very little money.
    If this goes well, I may try my luck at another one as well, but first things first.

    I really appreciate the help I know will come.

    I posted a guide that included a word document I slapped together on how to yank it out the top..check threads I've started, overall if you're experienced in auto mechanics, the Northstar isn't any other engine, removing one is a bear of a job, good luck and keep us updated include pictures!

    Re: Looking for a SPECIFIC N* Removal Guide

    Thanks for your responses.
    I apologize for not responding earlier.
    I had some bad things happen here.


    I have looked through the tech tips section & also at both of those posts.
    Neither are the article I am looking for, but there's enough information here to give this a go.


    Vincent, I saw your walkthrough.
    I don't think I want to try to remove this through the top the first time.

    Thanks again!

    Zonie,
    Thanks. Those are not the exact ones I'm looking for, but I think I have enough info now to give it a go.
