1965 Cadillac part source questions
« on: February 09, 2018, 08:04:12 AM »
Working on a 1965 Cadillac SDV with 127k miles (long time owner - more than 20 years), and he wants to take it to 200k miles.

It needs suspension work, steering work, timing chain, and other work yet to be discovered when it arrives at my garage to start work Monday after work.

I know for sure it needs rear suspension bushings (all 8), and a timing chain.  I would like to have those parts available (order today).  What is best source?  Interested in quality more than price, but obviously do not want to over pay either.

Thanks,

Scot

For the timing chain, I ordered Cloyes, but there was no kit, so I had to order separately from RockAuto.  CLOYES   C499,   CLOYES   S404T, CLOYES   S365

Scott,
Rear bushings are the same 65-76 so there should be something from say Rock Auto or other major supplier.
