Transmission Control
The Cadillac Synchro-Mesh transmission
control lever is located beneath the steering wheel on the right. It is operated in
the conventional manner. If your car is
equipped with the Cadillac Hydra-Matic
Drive, see the instructions which begin
on page 10.
* Turn Signal Control Lever
Ignition Switch Control
The ignition switch is located'on the
instrument panel just to the right of the
steering column. The key-hole is illuminated by pulling the headlight switch to
cither position. The ignition switch has
two positions in addition to "Off." When
the key is turned to the left of the "Off" position, only the temperature gauge, ammeter, fuel gauge, and accessories are operative.
When the key is turned to the right of "Off" position, the ignition
system is also turned on.
Starter Button
The Cadillac starter button is located on the instrument panel just
above the ignition switch. To start the engine, place the transmission
selector lever in neutral, press accelerator pedal slowly to the
toe-board and release (in order to set automatic choke), then turn on
ignition switch and press starter button. CAUTION:
Do not hold
starter button in longer than 5 seconds at one time. When starting a
hot engine, hold accelerator pedal down
halfway while pressing starter button.
Should the engine be flooded, bold accelerator down to the toe-board and press
starter button at five-second intervals
until engine starts.
2
The turn signal control lever is located handily on the steering column
opposite the shifting lever. When turning right, move control lever
up; when turning left, move control lever down. Lights flashing, both
front and rear, indicate to other drivers the direction you intend to
turn. A red flasher on the speedometer face indicates when the signal
is flashing. When the steering wheel is returned to the straight ahead
position, the lights go off and the control lever returns to normal
position automatically.
'
Headlamp Control
To operate the headlamps, pull the switch
knob out all the way. To operate the
parking lights, pull the switch knob to the
halfway position. The "Sealed Beam"
driving lights used on your Cadillac car
provide a country (upper) beam, which
illuminates the road for a considerable distance ahead of the car, and
a traffic (lower) beam, which eliminates glare in on-coming drivers'
eyes. The beam selector switch is located on the toe-board and is
operated by the driver's left foot. When using the country (upper)
beam for driving, a red beam indicator, located on the speedometer
face, lights up. Never pass an approaching car with this light burning. Panel lights ordinarily are on when the switch is in either first
or second position, although they can be turned off by rotating the
knob all the way to the right. Their brightness is controlled by
turning the switch knob to right or left.
:5
.? Hand Brake O p e r a t i o n
Your Cadillac is equipped with a parking
brake independent of the regular footoperated braking system. The handle is
conveniently located at the driver's left
just below the instrument panel. To apply
brake, pull handle straight back. To release» turn the handle left and it will return to normal position.
# Driver's Seat Adjustment
The adjustment of the front seat is accomplished easily by lifting the lever at
the base of the seat on the left-hand side,
sliding the seat backward or forward until
the position is comfortable, and releasing
the lever to lock the seat.
# Cadillac Electric Clock
A fully automatic electric clock is an integral part of the instrument
panel design. The reset knob is located below the clock on the instrument panel flange on all series, except the 62 and 60 Special on which
it is located on the glove compartment, door. The regulator arm is
on the back of the clock in all series.
O Ventilating System
Nothing adds so much to the enjoyment of Cadillac motoring as the
ease of controlling ventilation to suit the occupants. Great care has
been taken to work this out satisfactorily. Cadillac All-Weather
Ventilation permits adequate air circulation at all times, even under
adverse weather conditions when windows must be closed. There
are two ventilating passages behind the radiator grille that permit
the delivery of air to the driving compartment through screened
openings. Control of this system is maintained through valves,
operated by knobs located just below each end of the radio grille.
The knobs can be pulled out to provide the degree of ventilation
desired. Each ventilator is also provided with a door to deflect the
air inside the car.
9 Windshield Wipers
The button for the control of windshield wipers on your Cadillac
is located centrally above (he instrument panel at the base of the
windshield division moulding. The windshield wipers are operated
by turning this button to the right.
An excellent means of cleaning your windshield while driving can be
secured by installing a Cadillac Windshield Washer. This washer
does away with those dangerous moments when the windshield is
smeared with road spray or mud from passing cars. To operate, press
the button below the lower left of the instrument panel, and water
will be sprayed on the windshield to assist the wipers in cleaning.
4 Radio Control Panel
When Cadillac cars are equipped with radios, the controls, including
the control for the vacuum operated antenna, are neatly and conveniently grouped above the radio grille in the center of the instrument
panel. There are 7 push button controls and 2 knob controls. Press
" O N - O F F " button to turn radio on; press again to turn off. A red
warning light glows on the dial when your radio is on. To tune the
radio, depress one of the five selector buttons or use manual control
knob to the left of the selector buttons.
For tone selection, press button marked
" T O N E " until desired effect is obtained.
Volume is controlled by turning knob located to right of push buttons. This knob
also raises the aerial when pushed in and
lowers the aerial when pulled out.
You mav select any five of the. most popular radio stations in your
area of reception for automatic tuning. Ml that is necessary to adjust
the push buttons is to follow the three steps listed below.
1. Starling with the lowest kiloe\cle station on the left, push the
first button in until it remains latched in.
2. Rotate the button to the desired station, making sure that
tuning is accurate and reception elear. (Do not press button
while rotating.)
3. Kepeat operations 1 and 2 for remaining buttons.
' Cigarette Lighter and Ash Tray
For the convenience of smokers, Cadillac
has provided a cigarette lighter on the
bottom of the instrument panel, to the
right of the radio grille. This lighter is
operated by pushing in on the knob.
When heated, it will click out for use. An
ash tray is built into the right side of the
panel grille.
Rear View Mirror
A rear view mirror is located near the top of the windshield division
moulding. This mirror can be rotated on its mounting to accommodate all drivers and seat positions.
Cadillac S p e e d o m e t e r
The Cadillac speedometer, in addition
to speed ami cumulative mileage indication, includes a trip mileage indicator. This is easily reset to zero by one
complete revolution of the dial. Push
in and turn counter-clockwise the
reset knob located at the bottom of
the instrument panel to the right of
the steering column.
Oil Pressure Gauge
Lnder normal operating conditions, oilier than idle, the oil pressure gauge should indicate approximately 30 lb. pressure. If no
pressure is indicated, slop the engine immediately and have the
cause investigated.
Heat Indicator
The heal indicator shows the approximate temperature of the coolant
in the engine. The pointer should register within the center range
except during long continuous driving in warm weather, when it
may go slightly beyond that point. This condition is not alarming,
as the pressure-operated overflow will normally prevent fluid losses
at temperatures up to 235°F. When your engine operating temperature runs hot on long drives, it is important to remember to check
oil and coolant levels frequently. Should the indicator show "hot" on
short runs, have your Authorized Cadillac Service Station investigate
immediately.
Charging Indicator
A charging indicator is used to show the "charge" and "discharge"
of the electrical system. Unless the battery is fully charged, the gauge
pointer should indicate "charge" after the car is operating 15 to 20
miles per hour. The gauge pointer should indicate "discharge" only
when engine is idling or accessories are being used with engine shut
off. Have your Cadillac Authorized Dealer check any irregularities.
6
Gasoline Gauge
The gasoline gauge operates only when the ignition switch is turned
either to the right or left position, at which time it will indicate the
quantity of fuel in the tank.
Cadillac Door Locks
Each door on your Cadillac can be locked
from the inside by pushing down the convenient lock button as shown. Doors may
also be locked from the outside with this
button by pushing the button down while
the door is open, and then holding the door
handle all the way down while closing the door. Of course you'll want
to be sure vour door key has not been left in the car.
Locks on the rear doors of sedans are set so that both the inside and
outside door handles are inoperative when the lock button is
depressed. This is a desirable extra safety measure when children
are to be alone in the rear seat. To open a door under this arrangement, it is first necessary to lift the lock button, then operate the
door handle. If desired, the locks on the rear doors of sedans can he
reset at any Authorized Service Station so that pushing down the
lock button makes only the outside door handle inoperative. For
your own protection, and to cooperate with law enforcement personnel, do not leave your cur unlocked when unattended.
Door " H o l d - O p e n "
A door "Hold-Open" is incorporated in each
door on your Cadillac. When a door is
opened fully, this device prevents it from
closing of its own weight while passengers
are entering or alighting. To close door,
simply push firmly; no release is required.
Accessory Back-Up Light
Many Cadillac owners have their cars
equipped with the Cadillac Hack-Up Light.
It is located, as illustrated, on the rear of
the body on the left side. This light operates automatically whenever gears are
shifted to reverse, and the ignition switch
is on. Excellent illumination is then provided for hack ng into j
or out of narrow or close-bordered drivewavs.
7
Cadillac Automatic Heating Controls
The controls for the heater, which may be
either the Cadillac Automatic Heating
System, or the Cadillac Ventilating-Defrosting Heater, are located on the lefthand side of the grille in the center of the
instrument panel.
The Cadillac Automatic Heating System works as simply as thermostatically controlled heating in your home. This system has two control levers. The left-hand lever, marked "Heat," is the thermostatic
control. In its uppermost position the heaters are off. As it is moved
downward, the heat delivery increases. Maximum or " H i " heat is
attained when the lever is all the way down. By placing the lever in
the position desired for your comfort, the system operates automatically on and off when the ignition switch is on. Temperature
selected remains constant. N O T E : Do not turn heaters on until
engine coolant is at operating temperature. This will prevent circulation of cold air.
The right-hand lever (marked "Defr") controls both the fresh air
supply to the defroster and the defroster fan. When the lever is in the
"Off" position, the fresh air intake valve is closed and the fan is off.
When the lever is moved to the vent position, the fresh air valve is
opened but the fan is kept "Off." This position is recommended for
ventilation. In the positions just above and below "Fog" the defroster
is operating, first at low speed, then at high speed for normal defrosting. At the "Ice" position, the air intake valves are closed and the
defroster is on at high speed, providing maximum heat to prevent ice
formation on the windshield.
Ventilating-Defrosting Heater Controls
The Cadillac Ventilating-Defrosting Heater also has two controls,
the heat control at the right marked "Heat," and the fresh air control
at the left marked " A i r . "
The heal control is "Off" in the central position. Moving the lever
upward provides direct circulated heat at high, medium, or low
velocity. Once your car has been brought to a comfortable tempera-
8
ture, the heater motor can be turned off and the fresh air valve
opened to maintain the temperature in mild winter weather. Moving the "Heal" lever into the lower or "Defroster" range reverses the
air current direction from the heater fan, thereby providing indirect heating with maximum defrosting in three speeds, when the
fresh air lever is in the "Off" position. For normal indirect heating,
put the fresh air lever in the " O n " po-ilion.
The fresh air lever should normally be carried in the " O n " position.
It can be moved to the "Off" position when maximum defrosting is
required to melt ice from the windshield.
License Data
The engine number, which is also the serial number, is stamped on
the car in two places: On the right-hand side of the crankcase, just
above the water pump, and on the right frame sidebar just behind
the engine support bracket. It contains figures only, and no letters.
It can be read from the right side upon lifting the hood.
The engine number is to be used in license and insurance applications,
and in general reference to the car.

For Normal Driving
There is no need for you to move the lever
from " D r " position. Be comfortably relaxed. All you need think of is steering,
controlling the speed, and using your
brakes.
«* When to use " L o "
Another forward
step in simplifying
driving is provided by
the Cadillac Hydra-Matic
Drive, which virtually eliminates manual shifting of gears,
and provides smooth transfer of
power from engine to wheels.
The Cadillac Hydra-Matic Drive control lever and panel are conveniently placed under the steering wheel. There are four positions
on control panel: "Neutral" . . . " D r " . . . " L o " . . . "Reverse."
The following is the correct use of each:
To Start—Move control lever to
Starter will not function until this is done.
Turn on ignition. Push starter button.
After engine is started, move control lever
to"Dr," press accelerator, and drive off.
To Stop — Merely release the accelerator
and step on the foot brake pedal.
The control lever should be moved to
" L o " when driving conditions are such
that it is desirable to keep the HydraMatic Drive in the lower gear range. This
includes driving up or down long steep hills
and driving on sandy or muddy roads. As
soon as you desire to return to normal
driving, move the control lever to " D r . "
Never attempt lo coast with the control
lever in neutral with the engine cither on
or off.
Passing
Cadillac Hydra-Matic Drive insures safer
passing by providing a quicker pick-up.
An extra burst of speed is secured by
pressing the accelerator rapidly down as
far as it will go. This procedure automatically downshifts the transmission to
3rd gear, resulting in increased power and
faster acceleration.
O Parking on Hills
To Back Up—With car stopped and engine idling, raise control lever and slowly
and deliberately move to " R , " then
press accelerator. To go forward again,
stop car, move control lever to " D r " ,
and press accelerator.
10
Your Cadillac Hydra-Matic Drive will
provide you with safe parking on hills or
steep inclines. Just raise and move the
control lever to " R . " With the engine shut
off, this permits locking of the gears in
the transmission.
11
Proper Care of
IMra-Malit lirivi.
Cadillac Hydra-Matic Drive operation depends upon the use of a
fluid of very exacting specifications, compounded especially for
Cadillac. This fluid is procurable only from Cadillac Authorized
Service Stations. Any other fluid will prove unsatisfactory and may
cause serious damage.
Cadillac Authorized Service Stations will check
the fluid level in your Hydra-Matic Drive every
1,000 miles at the same time that your car is
being lubricated. If necessary they will add
fluid to bring level up to the full mark.
Your Cadillac engine is a thoroughbred
Better performance will be obtained by
the use of gasoline having an octane rating
of 80 or more. The use of gasoline rated
lower than 80 octane tends to reduce the
efficiency of the engine, causing knocks
and pings.
# Gasoline Tank CapacityTin- capacity of the gasoline tank on the 61, 62, and 60S Series is
20 gallons. On the Series 75 and Commercial cars, the capacity is
24 gallons. The gasoline filler cap is located under the hinged top
of the left rear lamp as indicated in the illustration.
# Engine Oil Level Indicator
The Cadillac Hydra-Matic Drive should be
completely drained and fresh fluid supplied at
the end of the first 6,000 miles and every 12,000 miles thereafter.
If it should ever be necessary to start the engine by pushing or
towing the car, this can easily be done by pushing or towing with
the car in N E U T R A L until a speed of 15 to 20 miles per hour is
reached. Then the control lever should be moved to the " D r " position
(not to "Lo") and the engine will ordinarily start within a few
seconds.
To tow a car in which the Hydra-Viatic Drive has run out of fluid,
or has been damaged in some way so that it knocks, slips badly, or
will not drive the ear, the propeller shaft should be disconnected to
avoid rotating parts of the transmission and possibly causing further damage. An alternate method is to tow the car with the rear
wheels off the ground. There is, of course, no danger in towing a
car in which the transmission is normal, provided the selector lever
is in neutral.
12
The combination oil filler and crankcase ventilator cap with bayonet
type indicator is on the left side of the Cadillac crankcase. It is
wise to have the oil level checked each time gasoline is purchased.
Add oil whenever the level is down to the "add one quart" mark, but
add only enough to bring level up to the "full" mark, or 7 quart level.
Avoid overfilling crankcase, since this may cause the oil to foam.
The copper gauze in the cap should he cleaned in gasoline, then
dipped in engine oil each lime the engine oil is changed.
# Radiator
Filler Cap
The radiator filler cap is located under the hood. The coolant should
be checked every time gasoline is purchased. The correct level is
one inch below the bottom ol the filler neck.
When removing the filler cap from a hot engine, rotate the cap
toward the left until the first stop is reached. This is the vented
position, which allows pressure to escape. Keep in this position until
the pressure in the system has been relieved, then turn again to the
left to remove. Turn the cap all the way to the right when reinstalling.

Cadillac recommends the following available commercial materials, which may be used for preparing antifreeze solutions to be used in automobile radiators:
denatured alcohol, methanol, propanol, ethylene glycol,
and distilled glycerines.
The cooling system on your Cadillac has been designed to maintain
the predetermined right temperature for efficient engine operation,
and to protect your engine from the adverse effects of overheating.
The capacity of the system is 25 quarts.
The cooling system requires regular attention. The proper coolant
level is one inch below the bottom of the filler neck. Keep the system
leak-proof by having all connections tightened regularly. Have your
Cadillac Authorized Service Station clean and flush the system at
least twice a year, or every 6,000 miles.
® Cadillac Cooling System Inhibitor
Your Cadillac, when delivered to you, contained a charge of Cadillac
Cooling System Inhibitor, a special chemical that retards the formation of rust and scale. A fresh charge of Inhibitor should be added
whenever the system is drained and refilled, regardless of summer
or winter or whether an anti-freeze containing Inhibitor has been
used. Cadillac Cooling System Inhibitor is recommended because of
its effective action, and also because it can be safely used with
any standard anti-freeze.

inorganic salts, honey, glucose or sugar, are not satis40°
factory for use in the cooling system.
* Before Installing Antl-Freeze
CsuSs)
The cooling system should be thoroughly cleaned, inspected, and serviced for winter operation. This insures
removal of all iron rust and scale. It is advisable to
install new hose for the radiator and heater when
ethylene glycol and glycerine solutions are used. Hose
previously swollen by water absorption has a tendency
to shrink when these materials are used, thus causing leaks. Regular
inspection of the entire system, to prevent leaks, should be made
frequently after the anti-freeze is installed, and special checks made
on hose connections, cylinder head, and water pump.
The Automatic Heating System (installed as an accessory when
ordered) is so located that it does not drain, even when the hose is
disconnected, unless air pressure is applied. Do not rely on draining
to prevent freezing on cars using this Heating System; be sure to
get some anti-freeze into the heater cores.
> "Heavy- Duty Motor Oil —This term shall designate an oil having
proved oxidation stability, bearing corrosion preventive properties
and detergent-dispersant characteristics. Oils of this type are generally suitable for use in both high speed Diesel and gasoline engines
under heavy-duty service conditions."
The Regular or straight mineral motor oils are satisfactory for
use in average passenger car service under normal driving conditions.
These are considered to he a combination of low and medium speed
driving with only an occasional long run at high speed.
Engine Oil Recommendations
Your use of the proper Engine Oil is of great importance in obtaining
maximum performance and satisfaction from your car.
Oil oxidizes when heated. Unless protected against oxidation, crankcase oils may form sludge and varnish, and under some conditions,
corrosive acids.
To minimize the formation of these harmful decomposition products
and to supply the type of oil best suited for the different operating
conditions, the refiners market several types of oils. The particular
types recommended for passenger car use have been defined by the
General Committee, Division of Marketing, American Petroleum
Institute, as follows:
3 "Regular Motor OH—This term shall be used to designate a
straight mineral oil. Oils of this type are generally suitable for use in
internal combustion engines under moderate operating conditions."
O "Premium Motor Oil—This term shall be used to designate oils
having proved oxidation stability and bearing corrosion preventive
properties. Oils of this type are generally suitable for use in internal
combustion engines where operating conditions are such that regular
oils do not give satisfactory service."
22
Under more severe driving conditions where the engine is required
to develop more nearly full power for a much larger percentage of
the time, as for example in mountain climbing and in sustained high
speed driving, the P R E M I U M MOTOR OILS are recommended.
The heavy-duty oils which are recommended for use in heavy-duty
truck, bus, Diesel, and gasoline engines are equally satisfactory for
use in passenger car engines under the same operating conditions for
which the P R E M I U M MOTOR OILS are recommended.
FOR M A X I M U M P R O T E C T I O N OF Y O U R C A D I L L A C E N G I N E U N D E R A L L D R I V I N G CONDITIONS, IT IS R E C O M M E N D E D T H A T P R E M I U M OR H E A V Y - D U T Y G R A D E
MOTOR O I L B E USED.
For the first 1,000 miles, use the oil in the crankcase at the time your
car was delivered to you. During this period should additional oil
be necessary, use nothing heavier than 10-W oil in winter or 20-W
oil in summer. Change oil at 1,000 miles. Break-in oils or compounds
are entirely unnecessary. Do not use them under any circumstances
> After the First 1,000 Miles
For better all-around engine performance after the first 1,000 miles,
SAE 20-W or SAE 20 engine oil should be used during summer
weather. If your car is regularly driven at high speed, or if the prevailing daylight temperature averages 90° F, S A E 30 oil may be used.
23
For cold weather, oil should be selected that will permit easy starting
at the lowest temperature anticipated for the entire period. Unless
the proper oil is selected, you may have difficulty starting your car
if the temperature drops suddenly. The viscosity grades of engine
oil for use in your Cadillac at the various cold weather temperatures
are given in the chart below.
If you anticipate that the minimum
atmospheric temperature will be:
Not lower than 30° F. above zero
As low as 10° F . above zero
As low as 10° F. below zero
Below 10° F. below zero
Use the grade
indicated:
20-W or SAE 20
20-W
10-W
10-W plus 10%
kerosene
Note: 10-W oil plus 10% kerosene is recommended only
for those territories where the temperature remains under
10° F . below zero for long periods.
Your Cadillac Authorized Service Station will advise you on the
proper engine oil required to give the best performance under existing climatic and driving conditions.
® Proper Oil Level
Always maintain the proper oil level. The
oil indicator is marked in quarts. Whenever the level falls below the "add onequart" mark, add oil immediately. Do
not add above the "full" mark, or 7-quart
level. Check your oil each time you buy
gasoline and before starting long drives.
Engine oil should be drained and replaced with fresh oil every
2,000 miles. Hard driving conditions may necessitate more frequent
changes. Consideration for this should be given when driving in dust
storms, in cold or severe weather, or on very dusty roads.

Chassis Lubrication
Detailed instructions for the lubrication
of your Cadillac car are listed and illustrated in the "Lubrication Chart". The
chassis requires attention every 1,000
miles, and all chassis lubricating points
should be given attention at these times.
In addition, the standard transmission
and rear axle lubricant should be drained
and replaced every 6,000 miles.
•4 Rear Axle
The rear axle of your car is equipped with a hypoid gear and pinion,
and it must be lubricated always with SAE 90 Passenger Car Duty
Hypoid Lubricant.
The lubricant level should be inspected every 1,000 miles, and Hypoid
Lubricant or SAE 90 or " A l l Purpose (rear Lube" added, if required.
The axle should be drained, (lushed out, and refdled with fresh
Hypoid Lubricant everv 6,000 miles, regardless of season.
Transmission
The transmission (except Hydra-Matic) is to be lubricated all-yearround with SAE 90 or SAE 90 E P gear oil or SAE 90 or " A i l Purpose
Gear Lube." The SAE 90 Hypoid Lubricant recommended for the
rear axle may be used also in the transmission.
The lubricant level should be inspected every 1,000 miles and lubricant added as required. Every 6,000 miles, the transmission case
should be drained, (lushed, and refilled with fresh lubricant.
#
Other Points
The steering gear, water pump, wheel bearings, and grease gun
connections each require a specific type of lubricant. Only operators
familiar with these requirements and having the right materials
should be permitted to lubricate the car.
