So last week i took my kids to the route 66 ice palor in town here. I always see a 61 cadallic parked out front, and thought maybe i could bs with the dude as the kiddies made a mess out of their cones. As we're getting ready to leave he wants to take a picture of the kids to add to the wall, He notices my 62 cad tattoo on my arm and we start to talking. He tells me of a couple of kids that came in awhile ago and where saying that their buddy has a old cadillac for sale that looks like his and for really cheap. He offers to show me where it is. We go look at it and behind the trailer is a 61 four door six window town sedan cadillac. We knock on the door and no answer, So easter on the way to moms I stopped by and the dude was there. It was grandpas car bought new in missouri and he died 5 years ago.The motor and tranny where rebuilt a little before that. He said he drove the car 4 months ago 30 miles. We agreed on the price. I picked it up on friday. The gas tank was in the rear seat full of rust dust. The stainless trim is all there and in great shape. Rust in the usuall cadillac lower ft fenders. Floors are good as is the trunk. Keep in mind he said he drove it 4 months ago, so i wane to see if the thing would really run. I check the fluids and all looked good. Hook up a new fuel filter and run it into a can for now. Fires up after a little cranking, idles high. I figured that the carb was probly jacked up from sitting so long but at least i know it runs, so now i dont mind if i need to put some money into it. I checked the oil after i ran it for 2 mintues and it's a lite milky color.Shit water in the oil not good.I pulled the plugs to see if i could tell if the cylinders where filling up with water, all looked ok, not cleaned at all. So i start to contaplate if i even want to pull the 390 apart and try to fix it or just part out the thing since it is a four door. The better of it got to me so this morning i did a compression test and the 6 cylinders i tested are all really good 140-150 psi. The last one i tested came up 30 psi.houston we have a problem. I pulled the valve covers and found a few bent push rods.pulled the other side that all tested good and found some more bent push rods. So my question is what step should i do next? throw some new push rods in there and see what happens or pull the heads or?? What could make them bend that bad but still be able to run? I'm hoping that the water was from sitting so long and possibly built up some condensation.I did pressure wash the piss out of the motor but was carefull around the carb so maybe I got some water in that way. I never ran it long enough to get it hot enough so the thermostat would open, so i can't tell if it's pissing through a gasket or a crack. So O great ol' hambers what should I do next? pull it apart or start running some classified adds "parting out 61 cad"??? I really dont want to spend alot on this car as i've already got a 62 and 63 caddy's in the garage taht i would rather spend the dough on.
