What battery was fitted to 1982 4.1 Ford Fairmont Ghia sedans

Sorry I can't answer your question and I doubt anyone will remember without wading through the paperwork at the factory.

It is quite possible the original battery is an obsolete type. Motor manufacturers buy in batteries from a variety of suppliers depending on price and availability. Mostly though the batteries will all carry the same label and part numbering system..

The battery performance, capacity and physical size fitted to a particular vehicle will tend to vary depending on the equipment level and where the vehicle is destined to be sent from the factory. Very cold and very hot parts of the world will place greater demands on the battery and so a larger capacity will be specified.

Replacement battery catalogues will list current replacements from a single battery manufacturer and usually at least two will be listed for each vehicle, being an economy option and a premium or over-capacity option.

The old-fashioned term of "heavy duty" is still used but it means nothing today. Heavy duty batteries were fitted with thicker plates. They took longer to charge and the cold start performance lower than standard batteries of the same size. The advantage of the heavy duty battery is the lengthy time it can supply low levels of current.
In the UK the Law required vehicles parked at the roadside to show red light(s) to the rear and white light(s) to the front during the hours of darkness. Heavy duty batteries were ideal for this usage. That Law was changed many years ago.

I hope this helps.

How do i remove the brake caliper on a 1994 f350 4x4 there are no bolts attaching it

If this is a Pin Slider, here is 1996 steps:

Section 06-03: Brakes, Front Disc 1996 F-150, F-250, F-350 4x2, 4x4, Bronco and F-Super Duty Vehicles Workshop Manual
Heavy-Duty Rail Slider, F-Super Duty
Replace brake shoe and lining (2001) as follows when the lining is worn to a minimum thickness of 0.794mm (1/32 inch) above the front disc brake rotor shield. stj~us~en~file=ani_caut.gif~gen~ref.gif CAUTION: Always replace all brake shoes and linings on an axle. Never replace only one wheel (1007).
  1. To avoid fluid overflow when the caliper pistons are pressed into the caliper cylinder bores, siphon or dip part of the brake fluid out of the brake master cylinder reservoir (2K478). Discard the removed fluid.
  1. Raise the vehicle and install safety stands. Remove the front wheel and tire assembly.
  1. Place an appropriate size C-clamp on the disc brake caliper with end of clamp against caliper and end of screw against outer shoe. Tighten the clamp to bottom the caliper pistons in the cylinder bores. Remove the clamp. Do not use a screwdriver or similar tool to pry caliper pistons (2196) away from the front disc brake rotor (1125).

  1. Clean excess dirt from area around pin tabs.
  1. Tap upper caliper pin toward inboard side until pin tabs touch the front wheel spindle.
  1. Using Hydraulic Caliper Pin Remover D89T-2196-A or equivalent and a light hammer, drive the pin from the disc brake caliper as follows:
    1. Position the notched end of the tool against the caliper pin (retention tab half), at a 45-degree angle from the pin retention tabs.

    1. Tap the tool with the hammer to compress the retention tabs.

    1. As the retention tabs are compressed, move the tool to gain a straight approach to the caliper pin, and continue tapping to drive the caliper pin through the caliper/spindle groove.
  1. Repeat removal procedure for lower caliper pin.
  1. stj~us~en~file=ani_caut.gif~gen~ref.gif CAUTION: Do not let the disc brake caliper hang by the front brake hose (2078). The front brake hose could become stretched or twisted which can cause the front brake hose to leak and rupture, resulting in failure.
    Remove the disc brake caliper from the front disc brake rotor. If the disc brake caliper is to be removed for service, remove the front brake hose from the disc brake caliper. Plug the end of the front brake hose to prevent fluid loss and entry of air into the system. If the disc brake caliper is not to be removed, wire it up to the frame of the vehicle to avoid damage to the front brake hose.
stj~us~en~file=ani_caut.gif~gen~ref.gif CAUTION: Always replace all brake shoes and linings on an axle. Never replace only one wheel.
  1. NOTE: There is a raised section at one end of each shoe so installation can be made in one direction only.

    Install new inner and outer lining.
  1. Lubricate the knuckle upper and lower inner pad grooves and caliper grooves with Disc Brake Caliper Slide Grease, Silicone Dielectric Compound D7AZ-19A331-A or equivalent meeting Ford specification ESE-M1C171-A. Install the disc brake caliper on a front wheel spindle, making sure the mounting surfaces are free of dirt.
  1. stj~us~en~file=ani_caut.gif~gen~ref.gif CAUTION: Do not allow the tabs of the caliper pin to be tapped too far into the spindle groove. If this happens it will be necessary to tap the other end of the caliper pin until the tabs snap into place. The tabs on each end of the caliper pin must be free to catch on the spindle flanks.
    Position caliper pin with the pin retention tabs oriented adjacent to the spindle groove.
  1. Tap the caliper pin on the outboard end with a hammer. Continue tapping the caliper pin inward until the retention tabs on the sides of the caliper pin contact the spindle face. Repeat procedure for the lower caliper pin.

How can I tell if I have heavy duty brakes and suspension on my 98 Cadillac Deville? I want to change my rear wheel bearing and parts store says there are more than one size. please help me find the right...

the easiest way is to take the part into the parts store to compare them, ( which is always a good idea when buying new parts) another way , call the dealer with your serial number of the vehicle, that usually tells what options and extras are on your vehicle, and they can look it up for you,

What tool do I need to remove front caliper on 2001? Allen or star tool and what size?

First, you you managed to give the year, but you forgot to mention MAKE and MODEL...Nice-to-know ...especially since you are asking for SPECIFIC information that does not apply to all vehicles.
Second, I have no idea what a "star" tool is unless you are refering to a "Torx" driver.
Third, MOST GM vehicles built in this century require neither an Allen wrench or a Torx driver. Most calipers can be removed with either a 15mm or a 13mm socket or wrench.
I would recommend removing the tire and wheel assembly to LOOK at the caliper and see what is holding it.

97 GMC Sierra P/U Front left disc brake locks

The flex hose to that caliper has deteriorated and collapsed. You need to change both front flex hoes immediately! Once the hoses get to this stage they can blow under heavy braking and leave you with no brakes.
