    I want to thank every one that has giving advice on the 79 yo 85 Eldorado . I have always like these cars . Now I am convinced to stay away from them . What a shame . Such a good looking car with not much going on under the hood . No wonder you do not see to many at shows or even on the road .
    Thank you ,

Do check timing chain slack if the original
has not been replaced.  Bruce Roe
I realise that you know this, but, when tightening these screws, use a teeny-weenie screw driver, with grease on your fingers so you cannot overtighten.   Don't think I have ever seen a torque wrench small enough to cater for these tiny screws.

At least, they won't come undone as I think the only rough roads the car will be traversing is going to be one of carpet. ;)

Bruce. >:D
Mine had clips at both sides, right at the ends, so I made sure that I didn't spring from the middle of the sides, but the ends of the sides.   Should have mentioned that.

From memory, to remove the panel all the way, I had to remove the globe, and carefully release the clips from the holder.

Bruce. >:D

I packaged all the stainless that will need to be polished. This will be thousands to get them professionally mirror polished. IMG_20231204_180505496.jpg

All the parts that will need to be painted are set aside. I will need to strip and sand them. Two parts are aluminum and will need to be polished and anodized first.

Quote from: Michael Petti on Yesterday at 01:19:42 PMHas issues like that in my 60 CDV and problem was low fuel pump pressure and vacuum leaks. I think ideal pressure was 6ish for these. I measure the fuel pump pressure with a gauge without the FPR. If the pressure insufficient remove it, you don't need it. Tackle these issues one at a time and test in-between to be able to gauge the results of each modification.

Will do.
I took off the FPR and no change. Then put dwell just back just like it was before I added the FPR and no change. The issue is still this loss of power and seeking between 35 and 40MPH. It almost seems like it's a 3rd to 4th gear shift issue - which would suck. Will be investigating further when I get fuel pressure gauge tonight or tomorrow. Will also check for vacuum leaks.
Added wisdom welcome.
