Here is a bit of info on Cadillac 472/500/425 thermostats. http://caddy500.com/index.php?topic=697.msg4994#msg4994

As far as I know... There is no other thermostat that will interchange.

Good luck

Looked through the Stant thermostat catalog.  Stant says the Caddy Big Block takes a 13459 (195 degree) or 13458 (180 degree) thermostat.  No other auto/light truck engine family uses that 'stat according to the part number guide at the end of the catalog.

OTOH, I'm finding crossover to John Deere and International heavy-truck thermostats, specifically JD p/n AR48675 and Robertshaw  p/n 332-195 or 332-180.

Is the Robertshaw 332 series 'stat correct for a Caddy 472/500/425/368?  I can't find an on-line Robertshaw catalog, and the Robertshaw web site is useless for automotive thermostats.

I have been doing some reach what I found is that the is enough room for the engine. That is why I choose the challenge becouse of the looms and the room it has to offer I. The engine bay

Does anyone have a stock Cadillac hydraulic lifter (not well worn) where some measurements can be made ? I am interested in face to top of lifter, face to bottom of oil band, face to top of oil band, and, if possible, face to bottom of push rod cup.
Thanks,
Nick

I rented a V-6 powered Challenger a couple of years back. Very nice car! It was really quick for a V-6!
I think the Challenger is my favorite out of the Camaro & Mustang. They sure are an attractive car. Have you inspected & measured the engine bay to see if there is enough room for a Cadillac engine?


Good luck

What about an L88 style hood?

I've always liked the style, just don't know how it will look on that long Cadillac hood.

That is exactly what I am shooting for. An Eldorado with a high rise. How high is the question. raise the carb mount pad how much ? Angle it differently ?

Not a lot of demand for a stock replacement in fiberglass, but if it has clearance for the high rise intakes, there would definitely be a market for that. The trick is adding the extra clearance in such a way that enough people like the styling, to justify the cost of a production mold vs a one-off mold.

I have a friend who makes fiberglass boats for racing from scratch. Would there be any interest in a $1000 mid 70s Eldorado hood ? Possibly with a clearance lift in the center for a high-rise manifold ?
