The 2019 CAR WRENCHING SEASON HAS BEGUN. REPLACING THE CV-JOINTS AND AXLES OF MY 1978 ELDORADO

My 1978 Cadillac Eldorado Biarritz had some problems with both of its CV boots which splattered grease all over the front of the car. The still 100% original rubber boots were not torn, but decided to slip from the outer end and released some of the grease. I could not find a way to re-fasten them properly and the rubber also felt pretty hard after 41 years on the car.

The removed original right front axle including the rubber dampener. I will some time restore it and install new rubber boots and put it back into the car instead of the replacement axles I installed now, just to make it 100% original again.READ MORE...

MY WINTER PROJECTS 2018/19 - CV BOOTS AND FUEL PUMP

This are my two winter projects for the 2018/19 winter:😞
The Mark III has a leaking fuel pump if it was parked for more than an few days... (It stops leaking after its running for 2 minutes...).
The 1978 Eldorado needs both CV boots replaced ( the original ones just came loose but did not rip after only 40 years slinging grease everywhere). The 78 will also need some minor exhaust work (welding) and either the EGR valve needs to be replaced or the accelaration pump in the carburetor has a problem... it won’t get boring in the dead car season… I had hoped that I wouldn’t have to spend any…
