Cadillac Mechanic: Jerry Newton, Cadillac Technician replied 4 months ago

I don't have access to your email address, I am just the mechanic. Normally I would post this sort of thing here, but the file size limit is 5mb, and this file is larger than that, it has lots of instructions and drawings.

I sent those to you, did you receive them and get this car worked out?
