    had to use an old trick on for some seals

    it requires a $200 special tool to install 4 seals on the shaft...you can stretch them a bit if you dont have the tool but then they fit loose, so right now i have them wrapped in plastic then tightened with a hose clamp...

    once they shrink back down i can slap the new clutch assy in.




    ill fool with it some more tonight, have the pump apart and soaking right now, all that is left is rebuild the pump, valve body and install a drain plug, clean and install the tailshaft

    minor set back on the trans build, only fool with it a lil each day late at night...

    got the pump fully assembled and on the side, the trans shop forgot to include a main piece in the kit, we got back and they sold us 2 wrong parts, they were for a 97 up 4l60e transmission...so we went back, the guy apologized and gave us the correct part and made a note b/c everyone who bought that year kit didnt get the replacement part...so later ill jump back on it and get a lil more done

    Re: CadillacPimpinNOLA's 95 Fleetwood buildup 56K your computer will blow up

    disassembled the valve body, cleaned it,rebuilt it and changed a few springs for the shift correction kit, have to finish tightening it on...have to build 1 drum with the clutches and steels that gave a few issues...going out tonight so i may work on it tomorrow

    also the guy i work with who found my fleetwood for me, found another, it has some cosmetic damage and missing a skirt and looks to have been sitting for years, tags expired in 2010...i dont know if it runs but im going to try and get it for some parts. ill swap the bad stuff from mine if it has better parts and then flip it for a few dollars if i can get it for a few hundred, if they even want to sell it

    Re: CadillacPimpinNOLA's 95 Fleetwood buildup 56K your computer will blow up

    after a long party week i felt a lil tired...got the drum in that was giving a few issues...now we are on hurricane watch so doing laundry now and picking stuff up in the yard for when the high winds come...might slack off on this for a minute, then again the shed is build pretty damn sturdy so well see




    ready for one more clutch basket, then 1-2 band can be locked in and put the pump in...have to finish building the accumulator and tighten the valve body, install a drain plug in the pan and bolt it up...order a new convertor and it will be ready to remove the old one, flush the cooler and install the rebuilt one

    i stopped by and no one answered so once this hurricane hits and goes and everything is cleaned up, i may pass back and try again...i really wanted a good front bumper but this one is damaged, I can use a few things off of the bumper and a few other pieces on the car like the driver headlight and filler panel on top the bumper...what are you looking for....and again like i said, "if they even want to sell it"

    I need the plastic inner fender stuff - it ties the lower fender and trim together ahead of the front wheels. I have a long list of random stuff, too, but the inner fender trim is the biggest thing.

    Hoping Isaac passes you by...

    I'm not sure what else is missing on my car. The lower chrome trim is held on with baling wire attached to the headlight housing. I was really hoping to get an in-tact parts car to swap stuff over, otherwise I'm just guessing at what it should look like.

    Good luck with the storm. The media likes to sensationalize it, hopefully it will be a non-event for you.

    Re: CadillacPimpinNOLA's 95 Fleetwood buildup 56K your computer will blow up

    yea, it finally turned into a hurricane, hits land at 7pm tonight so all through the night and tomorrow there will be high wind and heavy rain...im just pissed cuz im not going to make a check cuz of this

    and that was my idea with car, swap good stuff with my slightly damaged stuff then sell it...the rear quarter chrome moldings, driver headlight are definatly mine if i get the car...i might swap all the plastics to mine that are under the hood so i can paint mine then swap them back out


    other good news, the transmission is 98% done...got the basket in. pump in, valve body tightened down, filter in, all electronics hooked up

    only have to clean the pan, install a drain plug for future times makes it easy, install that and the accumulator and a new convertor and "HOPEFULLY" it works correctly...

    <--this guy is not a transmission man
