the  new upper ball joint you have is not for a 62 caddy.the cam is not removable . the new ball joint will look exactly like the one you have in your car.the cam and adjusting nut are one piece and part of the whole joint.it has to be solid as to make an alighnment corrections.

ok, but when i do a search on EBAY, for "1962 cadillac upper joint", all the joint that i see are exactly like the new one i have.. there is no other upper joint ...

thanks for your answer..


Yes i have a manual,

So ok, i can try to remove the shaft and put it on the new joint.. that make sense.. (i have look at my manual and picture fig.4-8 show that)

Actualy in the manual, they talk about replacing the seal on the upper ball joint (fig 4-27) but they dont explain how to replace the joint itself... And i dont figure out what to do with the metal plate (picture 3 on my first post) maybe i have to remove that plate and dont use it?

The difference in the shaft size is the concentric cam the is on the old one . It needs to be taken off and put on the new one. This is used to align the front end.

There is a left and right upper ball joint. That one in the picture looks like one of them. Do you have a service Manuel?

Hi all!

  i want to install my new upper ball joint on my 1962, but the one i received dont look identical at the one i have on the control arm..

picture 1 & 2: look at the size of the shaft, the new one is smaller than the old one

Picture 3: The new ball joint have a metal plate at the bottom but the old one on the arm dont have that,,


i dont figure out how to use that, maybe i have received a wrong upper joint? or maybe someone can help me to figure how to install that?

thanks for your help :)

Wow.  That's pretty cool.  They even got the shift pattern correct.

Hi All:

I'm a new member and this is my first post. Glad I found you guys.

I have a 1953 Allard K3 with what I believe is a 1952 Cad 331 motor. I can't find any numbers on the carb, so I do not know if it's original or not, although it looks as though it is. I would like to get the carb (GM Rochester 4 jet) rebuilt, it's tired. I've looked around the web for a remanufacturer, but they all have some good and some bad reviews. Whom would you recommend?

Thanks in advance!
David
