    How to start a tight remanufactured engine

    It's a remanufactured motor that I bought from someone, it never been installed in a car before, it's a Cadillac 429, We open it up it looks real good on the inside, The problem we had is just been sitting for 2 years in his garage

    How to start a tight remanufactured engine

    The starter is turning it pretty good without the plug.
  10. I just installed a remanufactured 1967 Cadillac 429 engine that's been sitting for about two years, it crank well without the spark plugs but when I put the plug back in its tight, it turns very slow if at all. Any Suggestions on how I can get my motor running?
  11. I bought a 1967 429 Cadillac El Dorado motor for my 1967 429 Cadillac Deville. The motors look the same all the way around except the fly wheel sticks out about a 1/2 inch further on the eldo then on my deville motor, will this be a problem mounting to my deville transmission?

    Need some insight

    I bought 1967 Cadillac Eldorado 429 engine for my 1967 Cadillac deville. Everything looks the same except the flywheel Sticks out about a 1/2 inch further then all my old motor, Will this be a problem with my transmission?
  13. The motor was stored with the spark plug in it. He said it was a remanufactured engine so I don't think its a big problem just have to get it loose, If Necessary I do have some automotive experience so tearing it down should not be a problem. Also I checked online you can buy a engine stand from between $25 to $50 bucks 2 ton, so I might go in that direction.
  14. That was my concern about the torque, I didn't wanna put too much pressure on it and break Something. We can get it lowered and stabilized so we can Put some torque to it. But my main concern was to get lubricated first.
