Switched out the new temperature sending unit and put the old one back in, finally the gauged moved. It climbed about midway then went down when the thermostat opened. I put on a new radiator cap but it still puked out some coolant. not as much. the level is about 2-3 inches below the top of the tank. would this be normal?

Purchased a mechanical oil pressure gauge and hooked it up. the oil pressure is around 50-55
would this be normal with the melling pump?

also noticed today that when the car was in neutral and was revved up it wanted to creep forward. Doesn't do it in park.
Would this be an adjustment issue or something more serious? Where would I start looking?

thanks

R H - I stand corrected, mechanical is what I meant, thanks

HH56 & PackardDon- thank you for your responses and suggestions.

I checked the temp gauge as per the service manual, using a good fuel sending unit. the gauge works, the wire checks out fine. NAPA temp sender does not function. a TS6464 is what they sold me. I will install the old one and try it.

the front main bearing seal leaks quite badly and the transmission appears to be leaking form where the filler tube screws into the pan. I have tightened it a little more, and will see if the leak ceases.

I pulled the pan(again) as recommended to clean it out and check for parts of the broken lifter. that task done, I soaked the stuck valves for a couple of weeks, they finally freed up with the effort of a rubber hammer.
I then cleaned everything up, did a little valve lapping(first time) put on valve seals then reinstalled the head. ok........that wasn't so bad..... so I took off the other head and cleaned it all up(lots of carbon) did the valve lap, valve seals, then reinstalled it.

I also took the lifters out and serviced them as per the service manual

I know I may be doing things wrong but I want get it running to check the transmission and other things before the engine rebuild, Dad had an old partial gasket set laying around.

cleaned up the distributor, reset the points then rebuilt the carburetor.

pushed it outside, grabbed a fire extinguisher and went to fired it up.

Nothing, no spark. turns out I reinstalled the distributor a few degrees out.

That corrected, it fired right up. lifters still pretty noisy (sad face)

Adjusted the timing, set the carb as best I could. the car ran fairly well but then puked out the coolant. temp gauge is not working.

Shut it down and pushed it back into the garage to try to figure out the temp gauge issue.

I tested the oil sending unit previously and it functions. Also the oil light did not come on. New oil pump works well, the gasket was not seated properly on the oil filter can it it forced some oil out.


Can anyone recommend a decent external oil pressure gauge?

It’s 1-1/4” wide and 82-7/8” long, goes to a spear point on the back . Curves a bit on the body and ends at the door with a little tab

Thanks very much for your time

I got mine from McVey's Caddillac
Its a very complete kit. they were not selling lids last fall when I bought mine.
best to call them and ask for the fellow in charge of windshield washer pump kits. he will make sure you get the right kit.
