If it won't move, get a bigger wrench.
If it breaks, it needed fixing anyway.

As per post 15, I now have the stinkin thing apart It was stuck most of the way out. Now that I have it apart I know why. The mast has a slight kink in it about 1/2 way down and the second stage is caught in the kink. Now the age old question. What about Mr. Wojak. In my searching I came across a posting on the Cadillac/ LaSalle forums from March of this year. He stated that he had called Mr. Wojak in 2014 and that he still had antennas for sale then and that he wintered in Florida. I would like to see if I can get the mast repaired, or buy one to fix my antenna. I know Mr. Wojak is in his 80's. Or, does anyone know if there is someone that has taken over this service?

Thanks gentlemen.Just by what you guys have described it sounds like it could be a bit of a PITA to do, with the belt width and other things. It was just a thought. I haven't got my exhaust finished yet so I can't start the car and see how effective my fan shroud is. I'm pretty sure it will make a big difference in air flow.

Thanks BDeB. I can fabricate the one for the front. The car has a generic at the rear for the tail pipe. I just have to figure out what and how to put at the rear of the muffler as there is very little distance between the top of the frame rail and the pipe. That bracket for the front though gives me an idea. Hadn't thought of fastening something to the clamp saddle until I saw that picture. I didn't think outside the box. Wheels are turnin' in the brain now It has to wait until Monday as weekend night shifts are upon me. Thanks again!

Thanks Howard. After seeing the bracket off the bell housing in Jeff's post, the detail in the picture you posted makes sense. I am missing that. Fabrication time!! Now I guess I need a picture of the hangar that's at the outlet of the muffler, so I can copy/fab what I need to do the job.

Hello all. I need a little more assistance with the exhaust. This time it's with the hangers. Because my exhaust was a MacGyvered system, I am replacing with one from Kepich. So far, so good. I am trying to determine the hanger position. In post #2 Howard put a side view picture of the exhaust that shows a hangar at the rear of the muffler. So my wanting to put one there is correct. Would someone mind posting a picture from under their car of the detail that is shown above the muffler in that side view? To me it looks like that there is some brackets coming of something that support the pipes. Thanks again in advance for the help.

Ernie. Thanks for the compliment. I have fabricated a lot of different things over the years. I guess the best one was the hydraulically powered flight simulator for my kids years ago. It was rudimentary compared to what was available if you had money, but my kids loved it. I have sent you a PM.
