It includes wiring diagrams.
At the start of the 1950s, Oldmobile was a big player in the performance game, thanks to their "Rocket" engine. Here's how this manual describes this mighty motor..."The Oldsmobile Rocket engine, introduced in 1949 models, is of entirely new design having two banks of cylinders at a 90 degree angle. Overhead valves are used to accommodate the smaller combustion chambers necessary for high compression operation. Self adjusting hydraulic valve lifters keep the valve mechanism quiet under all operating conditions.
The Rocket engine, which is designed to withstand a compression ratio as high as 12.5 to 1, operates on an actual compression ratio of 7.25 to 1 which matches the octane ratings of the premium gasoline now on the market. The bore and stroke are 3-3/4" and 3-7/16" respectively."
This manual provides you all the specifications and information you'll need to handle a tune-up or a complete tear down, on either the Rocket engine, or the 6-cylinder. It's 634 pages loaded with well-written text and a huge number and variety of visual aids including: cut-away views, illustrations, black and white photos and tables. This comprehensive compilation of information will help to give you the confidence to tackle all manner of projects on your classic Oldsmobile. From under the hood, to inside the car, from top to bottom, from front to back, this repair manual is designed to give you the knowledge necessary to get (and keep) you motoring down the road.
