Title: Over 300 pages of Rare Cadillac Service Documents Uploaded
Post by: South_paw on February 08, 2014, 11:35:02 AM
Serviceman Supplements, General Service, and Confidential Service Letters and Serviceman exams for all Ike years have been uploaded in the document section of the forum. When this project is complete we hope to have all years from 1949 to 1960 scan and shared on the forum.

This is rare documentation not found in shop manuals. Every page has been scanned and filed by year. The 1954, 1955 and 1956 files are by far the largest with over 60 pages each. 1953 and 1957,1958 and 1959 are available as well.

More Mid Century Cadillac years coming real soon!

Thanks for these documents. Very helpful. There is an Authenticity manual from the LaSalle Club I have on my Xmas list. If not copyrighted (which it probably is) I will upload, if Santa is good to me.

Guys,

I changed a few permissions. All forum members should have access to the document section at this time. When we first set it up, we had lots of folks register, download the documents and leave without ever making a post.  I was trying to put and end to that by adding the post count to gain access.

@robo The convertible top manual is not in the documents section. The one you see on ebay for $200 is for series 62 verts. Eldorados have their own manual due to the hard boot. As you could imagine, the Eldorado top manual is super rare. It is 1956 specific as well.  I have it and plan on sharing with the group once I get around to scaning it.

Thanks Lou,I can understand why you did it
I was hoping to find out how the hard boot attaches to the rear deck,are those called dot fasteners? and where would I get them
as you could imagine there aren"t to many hard boots over here in Australia
cheers Scott

@robo

Attached is pictures of the boot hardware. Does your boot have any hardware on it?

Pic 1 is a factory diagram
Pic 2 is what the sockets look like installed
Pic 3 is the sockets not installed.
Pic 4 is the new hardware

Timing is everything they say, I just got a set of reproduction hardware for someone and they no longer need it. If you need this hardware, send me a PM.
