Most are counterclockwise rotation. If you have the fly wheel the spokes double as cooling fins for the pump. The rotation will be blowing on the pump regardless which way the wheel is mounted. If you have no fly wheel then all I can say is all the Northstar pumps I've ever seen are counterclockwise rotation.

You answered a question about a cadillac surging when it was started back some time ago. I just read it. Would this apply also to a 1993 Fleetwood?

Surging on start up is normal for the Cadillac with a Northstar V-8. The car will feel like it rocks forward and back because the engine is mounted sideways and the rotating mass of the crankshaft rotates front to rear direction.

I have the same problem and am about to buy a display from This is on the product page for the display:

**Note that this is not a direct replacement for the Northstar,but with some soldering it can be made to work.It is the same screen as used in the NorthStar units, it hasdifferent connectors. What this means to you is that youwill need to solder the connections directly to this board.Once connected, it works just fine.

Hello: All Cadillac Devilles had a Northstar starting in 1996. It will not make any difference if it is a SLS (275 HP) or a STS (300 HP)

What is the toqrque spechs and order for a Northstar 4.6 engin for both head and main & rod barngs. Does the main barnings have a order

If you have to pull a cylinder head on a 1993-1999 4.0L or 4.6L Northstar V8 to replace a gasket or do a valve job, do not reuse the old 11mm head bolts. Also, GM has revised the head bolt torque values and tightening procedure as follows:
  1. In sequence, torque all bolts to 30 ft.-lbs.
  2. In sequence, rotate all bolts an additional 70 degrees.
  3. In sequence, rotate all bolts an additional 60 degrees.
  4. In sequence, rotate all bolts another 60 degrees.
  5. Torque the front three M6 head bolts to 106 in.-lbs.

Sorry but this compressor will only supply up to a maximum of 130 psi. That is all it will do, so this compressor will not suit your needs of 175 psi. There is no way to make it produce more. You simply need a larger compressor. This Northstar compressor will suit your needs.

Correct rotation of copressor

Checked all the IR compressors in stock and all turn counter-clockwise facing pulley, however you could check the pump for fan angle on pulley. The fan on the compressor pulley blows air towards the pump. Generally, pumps turn CC because that would allow for the use of gasoline engines which all turn CC. Please email you questions, and Good Luck.
