Did this video help you?

Tim: Sounds immense!

Will C: Dude u rock for having that in that cond. Your right about the number of those that got trashed/wasted. I think they made FAR fewer of those than the 4100s. Wonder why gm used the weak 200 4R trans & not a TH 350/400? That tranny can get torn up from the 4.3 chevy truck engine. So who knows why they used it with the V8s. But looks like u eliminated most of the common issues. happy motoring. I think fuel economy was close to 30mpg for the folks wondering. 

Spencer Martin: what kinda milage does this thing get?

d barboza: They also came with the Craftsman diesel that was pretty good. 

Joe Moorman: That's like looking at a Triumph Stag and saying the Europeans don't know how to make good gasoline engines.

Elias Rella: Hey how much do these ones go for now a days?

Richard Gray: I currently have this 82 Cad Diesl. as you mentioned the head bolt problem which I current have. I'm having trouble finding the right head bolts? The replacements that I've found say they don't have the studs on top. So....question: is it nesessary to have the bolts with the studs on top? Do you know where to find them? Oh by the way I enjoyed listening to your vid...POS lol. very good. this particular cadillac is in mint condition with 50,000 orignal miles. Thanks

Corvus Casull: Yes they did, well at least here in the 'States. I've always had an eye for the off-kilter; the weird part of the world has always been far more fun and interesting than the generic boardwalk. Thanks for the kind words.

bisquik3006: Kudo's to you for thinking outside the box. GM really tarnished the reputation for diesel engines. Either way, I have to appreciate anything "odd ball".

san379 .: more vids in color..walk around

brycejcox: Ever heard of Caterpillar? Ya know, those weak american diesel machines that saved Europe from a mandatory class on German etiquette....

TheXcmt: Sweet ride man!

RetroGuy76: True! I had mine checked out by an "older" mechanic at the dealer & he said mine doesn't even need the GM pellets yet. These engines (esp. the power) get a bad rap by younger dudes because they are used to 0 to 60 in 10 seconds! LOL. People have to remember back then luxury cars were built for comfort, not speed, & the national speed limit was 55. I know a guy who's dad bought an 84 coupe with the HT4100 new & he had 175,000 miles on it & not one bit of trouble. Its all about maintenance.

Corvus Casull: Another serious compliment! Thanks! Though I couldn't in good conscience actually compare it to the Macks of yore. I imagine the remaining HTs are not as horrible as everyone remembers. People beat the snot out of cars and then are furious when they grenade, but I bet if you baby that old Cadillac and keep mind of its weaknesses, it'll do fine.

RetroGuy76: That thing sounds like an old Mack truck brah.....LOL! I have a 1984 Coupe DeVille with the "dreaded, never runs, explodes, don't buy, take you to a mental hospital if you do" HT4100 engine. Mine has 24,000 original miles and I lucked out because I actually got one of the GOOD HT4100's! Now theres a nice, smooth quiet ride. And as for mileage, I've actually gotten 27MPG on the highway crusing at a nice 60 MPH. Needless to say I baby it because I want to keep the engine running well.

CumminsDriver100: HA! That's the biggest joke ever. Some diesels might not have the horsepower of gas engines, but they always have more torque, which is power. My 96 Dodge Cummins may only have 215HP, so its not fast, but it would still drag your house down the road with ease. Try that with a 400HP big block gasser...

cadrolls: No one here likes diesel engines because they are noisy and smelly too. They are also a nighmare when the temperature gets to minus 20-30 below zero. Unless they are turbo charged, they have about half the power of a gasoline engine.

scdevon: Old GM Diesels. Run away. Run far, far away, These beasts are extinct for good reasons.

edy ed: American's can't make good diesel engines like Eurpoean's ..

ClassicTVMan1981X: The 6.2 was a truck engine and I believe the block was considered too large to fit in a B/C body.

S0u11ess: can anyone say if the new "GC" style sticks are better now (skipping issue fixed). I read that the spin attack/smash attack issue was fixed with the new GC style stick (one with green ribbon wires). I also read however, that it still has some skipping issues, can anyone confirm this? is there still a need for the Mirco V3 PCB to fix the GC style sticks, or are they good now?
