The S-I-L's 66 Caprice Engine Rebuild Update #9
I sent back the Energy Suspension mounts 'cause they were tall and narrow. Why this car has wide engine stands is any bodies guess. I kept the mounts that were on the car and added on 2 each 3/8" washers to each engine mount bolt on the drivers side. This was enough to raise the engine to clear the steering gear box. After a quick test drive, the heater core decided to let itself go, go figure, It's the OE core. So I blocked off the fittings on the water pump and removed the heater hoses until later this fall when the core can be changed out. I'm beginning to believe this car hates me or it wants to stay at my house. It must be possessed.
I've had a good time doing this project and I hope someone was able to get some useful ideas from the way I've done this project. Good Luck to all of you with your projects. I'll be in and out so if you have questions...Please ask.
Until next time....
I'll keeping checking in periodically
