The engine always started hot or cold, although it took about 10 seconds of cranking to fire, hot or cold! Very slow to accelerate, when rapidly accelerating engine stalls. This example has covered a claimed 61,000 miles and is not 100% original, but it is still a very nice example. Only thing is the knock, anyway to remedy that with some special oil treatment or will this eventually become so far gone too? Everything about this Cadillac is original bone stock. The most comfortable seats ever! Half-way, it started to knock. Scary feeling when you got a bus behind you. These engines have the updates already incorporated into them, and they are good engines.
Horsepower output was up 20 hp 15 kW from the previous 1990 4. This was obviously good news for Cadillac—especially after the division had suffered through two trouble-prone engines in a row. Consider installing temp and pressure gauges since the stock idiot lights can't be seen in daylight anyway! Recently I replaced the radiator, at the time the shop put in magic in a bottle head gasket fixer. Can't recall the torque figures. The one difficulty with this car is the fact that only 1,197 Touring Coupes were built during the 1983 model year, so they rarely come onto the market. The 368 cu-in big-block engine was mechanically bulletproof.
As a testament to it's reliability, I drove the car to school, work, and around town with a spun bearing for about two months, and about 500 miles on a spun bearing. The Northstar platform's ability to drop cylinders to limit wheel spin is done effortlessly and is similar in concept. Many of these cars have replacement engines too. The same technology incorporated into the 4. I think the state will vote to get rid of these facilities soon.
Carpet wears easily, especially near gas and brake pedals. Seats are cracking, driver side especially. There was a change from 74 to 75 as to how they measured the horsepower I believe because the 74 put out 365, can someone explain what the change was? Step 1: Remove the usual interferences- fan and shroud, vacuum lines and hoses, power steering lines, electrical wiring, overflow tank, cruise servo and pollution equipment near the passenger side firewall. A toggle switch can be added, but a latching relay system is much better. There's also a unique distributor that contains a couple magnetic switches, and of course the computer and temp sensors that screw into the intake. Another advantage for me is the ease in which I can fit my wheelchair in behind the driver seat then cruise in comfort all day. I love the Eldorado because it is, to me, the most beautiful Cadillac, yet! Most of them sooner than later.
We thought the engine would be at home with the other 4100's, theres another visible one right there! The net figures accounted for the rating with engine accessories and a full exhaust system installed. If you are looking at a swap I would strongly recommend a donor car so you can get all the brackets and stuff that will be needed and then find someone to do it that is not just going to start the meter running. It may not have been the most successful engine to sit under the hood of a Cadillac, but potential buyers were no more satisfied with the other two engines available at the time, the V8-6-4 and the Oldsmobile 5. The Olds' used a cable. This pict is supposed to show the unbolted exhaust manifold. She will leave you stranded.
The lower connecting rod bearings go which causes the knock. Didn't care too much for the newer versions. However, it is very well presented, and quite a sinister looking car for a standard Cadillac. Car had sat up for about 10 years. Don't get me wrong, I think the tablets were designed for subsequent engines the 4500 and 4.
This Eldorado Touring Coupe is not original, having received a new engine and a repaint. Otherwise, any Olds 350 block plus any 307 car below has everything you need. Couldn't turn the crank in either direction. These had soft cam lobes and burned oil well within its first 40K miles. It has three terminals, one tan wire that runs to the oil pressure indicator, and two blue wires that when connected, activate the fuel pump. The arrow points to a pair of oil cooler lines, disconnect them at the radiator as well as block. Can drive 300 miles in comfort.
This won't be that much. It turns out that I'm swapping in an Olds 403 since the 350 I was planning on going with was sold to someone else. Still my sbc moves it much better And to think, those years your option was the diesel 350, a whopping 105 hp! Problems originating from the used of different metals in the block and head became pervasive, often resulting in head-gasket failures. The passenger side flange is difficult to get to. Call us today before its gone! Better pull the fuel pump's fuse and relay.
If all else fails I will try to sell it and recoup some of my money. That motor had 66K original miles with a minimal knock heard when stopped with foot on the brake. This does look good, and I like the way that Cadillac minimized the chrome trim on the car in a bid to give the car a more understated look. I believe that TexasJim may have had a 4-6-8 Here is a site that is dedicated to the greatness of the 8-6-4. There has only been 2 owners of this Eldorado since new. Good luck in dealing with this. There was some custom work to do to make it all work but it was worth it.
