  5. Rebuilding 1977 Eldo rear calipers

    Cadillac Seville / Cadillac Eldorado Forum
    Hey, I need to rebuild the rear calipers on a 1977 Eldo (which are identical to 1976 and 1978, I believe). I've heard horror stories about the e-brake arm and spring coming out with no hope of going back in. If I don't move the arm, can't I simply use compressed air to blow out the piston...

    What service manual would you suggest I use to tear down and rebuild a 96 Northstar motor? I will be able to manage tearing it down and putting it together, but I want the best detailed torque specs. and preferably something with a good description on how to time the cams. The cams are what...

    I have a 99 concours that has been sitting in the driveway for a while. My brother was driving it and blew a rod through the block. Anyhow, I'm looking to get a new block, rods, pistions, etc.. and rebuild it. Have a few questions beforehand and figured I would ask here since I've never worked...
  8. Re-building radiators

    RWD 19xx-1984 DeVille and Fleetwood,1985-1996 Flee
    Hey guys, Just had my 5.7 rebuilt (as you can see from the post 'Finally getting a 5.7 rebuild). Was running ok, but then the radiator started leaking. I had it rebuilt in November 2007 by a radiator shop. They told me that they couldn't get a hold of another one, so they had to rebuild it...

    500, 472, 425, 368
    I have the rebuild kit for the carb on my 72 Eldorado convertible, but I'm new at this. There is a small metal "box" on the driver's side of the air filter housing--is this the egr connection? When I had it checked out before buying it, it was blowing 2.0% CO; my limit is 1.2%. I'll...

    500, 472, 425, 368
    I started a topic earlier this year about the trouble I had with the 472 I swapped into my 80CDV. Since then I bought a 72 CDV that had a strong running 472 to swap into my 80. Now I still have the old 472 and I would like to break into it to see what went wrong. I've never rebuilt an engine...

  15. Rebuilding the 3.0 V6 for more power

    V6: 3.0, 3.2 LA3, 3.6 LY7, 3.6 DI LLT
    I know we all want a Corvette V8 under our Catera hoods but likely that ain't gonna happen. These links lead to a normally aspirated 3.0 V6 project. This British builder is mixing the best parts from the L4 and V6 engines available in the Omega as well as a few Saab parts. He doesn't mention HP...

  18. Rebuilding the AC compressor

    Cadillac DeVille 1985 to 2005 including:1985-1992
    I didn't see a general tech related to mechanical so I thought I'd post here. I've rebuilt alternators, starters, engines and transmissions but never an AC compressor. I've rebuilt a few hydraulic pumps and that is about it. Before I bought the Caddy ('97 DeVille), someone had added dye to the...
  19. Rebuilding a tbi on 89 deville

    HT4100 4.1, 4.5, 4.9
    I have an 89 sedandeville with a tbi injection system. My fpr was bad and a new one is $185.00. But they had a gasket kit set for $35.71 with the entire tbi rebuild parts inside. It's a no brainer to buy the kit if you know what to do. My question is this all I need to repair the system. The fpr...
  20. Rebuilding power antenna

    Cadillac DeVille 1985 to 2005 including:1985-1992
    Anyone have any experience rebuilding power antennas? Mine still runs, but the push/pull cable seems to be detached, as the motor runs constantly but the antenna doesn't move. The FSV makes it look fairly simple, but I know how deceptive that can be...:bigroll:
