Hydraulic installation time is finally upon our project car, and in this issue we look at the suspension of our custom Cadillac which has been affectionately named “HellDorado.” When we started building it, we planned ahead by incorporating the CCE coil over cups, cylinder and coil combination for the custom frame. We also cut out the frame, so it would be an easy install when it was time to juice the ride.
After talking to the pros at Cool Cars of Kentucky, they recommended using their “Chrome Cyclone Pump,” which sports another unique design and uses a standard thickness block with three ports machined into it. There is a 3/8-pressure port on top and two on the sides for the oil returns, which helps to prevent foaming. This configuration also allows you to plumb your set-up in several different ways. For good looks and performance, this pump comes standard with chrome tanks, a billet backing plate and a chrome competition motor with a bearing end cap. Most importantly, the cyclone comes with genuine Marzocchi pump heads.
Follow along, and check out how we installed the CCE setup and Optima Batteries combo into our project Cadillac.
