Cadillac Catera Engine >> CAUTION INSTALLING CAMSHAFT SPROCKETS ON 7.0L ENG.


Caution on Installing Camshaft Sprockets on
1977-1979 7.0L (425 CID) Cadillac Engines


AERA members have reported that the camshaft sprocket on 7.0L (425 CID) Cadillac engines varies in thickness.

When installing a camshaft sprocket on this engine, be sure to check the protrusion of the mounting bolts (Figure 1) at the back side of the camshaft sprocket mounting flange. If the bolts extend to far beyond the camshaft mounting flange, they may come in contact with the cylinder block which could lead to an undesirable engine noise.

Be sure to use the proper grade bolt should the OE mounting bolts need to be replaced. Torque all mounting bolts to OE specifications.
