1958 Cadillac Runs After 15 Years!
I bought this Cadillac and it hadn't run in 15 years. It was missing the
carburetor and the previous owner I guess thought that was the problem.
Well, the carb was lost by the mechanic over the years. I borrowed one from
a 1963 Pontiac parts car I have. Turns out the fuel pump was bad but I got
it running in 20 second spurts with a gravity feed. I used a funnel, a hose
and filled it with gasoline. It worked until the gas ran out but it was a
good way to test a few things. At least I spark, compression and oil
pressure and that all the valves were opening and closing.
