65 Cadillac Deville
« on: June 16, 2017, 03:27:38 PM »
Hi I' am new here. I' am working on a 65 Deville. I need to figure out what engine someone put in it. My boss got it from hos father when he passed. It has a cracked exhaust manifold. He told me the engine was changed, but did not know what engine. He thought it was a 500. I do not know how to find out what engine I have.

Original 429 engine has oil filler tube in front. 472/500 has oil fill in valve cover. Also 472/500 has ac compressor on top center of engine, 429 compressor is on the passenger side of engine.

Post a picture.  Someone will ID it right away.  They can probably tell you how many miles are on it as well.
