    The suspense is killing me. I want to hear that thing run.
    When you post a video of it cranking over and running, I am probably going to be just as happy as you.

    Re: Cherie's '84 Coupe DeVille Project

    One thing you could try is to hold the throttle wide open while cranking. Most cars have a feature that turns off the fuel injectors when you do it. Works good when you have a probability of a flooded engine. Looking at the video, I'd bet you might get more response if you did it.

    Re: Cherie's '84 Coupe DeVille Project

    Oh noooooooo... I'm catching a cold!!!! I can't go over and reset the timing the caddy tonight. I don't feel well at all. ;______; I'm going to try to talk my sales manager into letting me trade working tonight for leaving early tomorrow so I can go work on the Caddy.

    I think in trying to get the caddy up and running in such a short amount of time, I've overworked myself. @__@

    Anybody got any miracle cures?! I need to get this Caddy running!

    Actually it should start normally once you get it timed right. Probably save that trick for when its flooded.

    Last night we corrected the timing...

    1. Set the #1 cylinder to TDC first trying the finger method (but that was difficult), and then we used a screwdriver, and that finally worked well.

    2. Took off the distributor cap and saw that the rotor was two positions off, so we pulled the distributor base out, put the rotor where it's supposed to be (#1), and put it back in.

    The temperature dropped really quickly last night and fog rolled in, so we just put everything back together, and we're going to go back today to try to fire it up.

    I've been living off dayquil (and nyquil at night) trying to survive these last few days working on my Caddy with this cold.

    Can't run it around the neighborhood just yet... it needs a temporary pass because it's plates are out of state and expired in '06. :x

    Haven't yet timed it with the timing light, but it's running pretty well so far!

    I admire your restraint. I would be lighting up the tires if it were me. I would call it a "shake out run" though. We have to be technical about it.

    Looking good. Did you change the oil? You get an even better idea of how big it is when you're driving it and you realize there is 7 feet of car in front of you.
