  1. Good info., & thanks for passing on! I like to leave a 1 inch expansion gap between the bottom of the radiator filler neck tube & the coolant. Now I have the right cap on the radiator system (which in this instance is pressurized) the problem appears to be fixed.
  2. I'm interested in hearing from anyone currently using (or like myself considering using) 10w 40 high-mileage motor oil in an early 1940s era Cadillac. I've read various articles on the pros and cons of using synthetic/part synthetic oils in older engines, and it seems to me to all boil down to simply a "matter-of-choice," for the most part. Any thoughts?
  3. Appreciate the information Dan...many thanks! I recently purchased the car and discovered it was losing coolant through the overflow tube. The cap that was installed was rated at 4lbs, which I believed may be incorrect. Unfortunately, none of the manuals supplied with the car listed the type or rating of the radiator pressure cap.
  4. Hoping someone can provide me with the pressure cap rating for a 1941 Cadillac Series 62. Thanks in advance, Grant
  5. Thanks for all the information, Jeff. I'll follow the links and see what more I can find. Thanks also to Beach & D Yaros! Grant
  6. Yep, that's what appears to be listed adjacent to the words "Trim No." May also read 5077, but looks more like SO77 to us. The body No. is FW 77. Paint No. 1 (space) then letters "KU"
  7. Can someone shed some light on the following trim #: SO77, that appeared on a 1948 Cadillac Series 7533X. I can't find that particular code listed on any of the information I could lay my hands on. Any help appreciated. thanks--Grant
  8. I'm looking for a Cadillac Series 60, 62, or 75 4-door sedan from the 1930 - 1950 era. The vehicle should be in good mechanical condition, but may be in need of some cosmetic freshening up. Rust free, if possible. Please PM or email me with any replies or questions. I look forward to hearing from you soon--thanks
  9. I'm looking for either a Buick Super or Buick Roadmaster from the 1930 - 1950 era. The vehicle should be in good mechanical condition, but may be in need of some cosmetic freshening up. Rust free, if possible. Please PM or email me with any replies or questions. I look forward to hearing from you soon--thanks.
  10. Was looking for some help in locating a vehicle inspection service in or near Berkley, MA. Any help or information would be appreciated. Thanks!

  12. Thanks to everyone for taking time out to reply. The serial number of the engine was: 49794257 (was a horizontal bar located directly under the last digit). No "R." So if I had to guess, I'd say it probably is black primer although I could not make out any other colored paint on the engine.
