    Charging issue

    Tim, 1st. off you NEVER remove the battery cable from a car when it has an alternator. It normally kills the diodes immediately. The cable removal is when vehicles were equipped with generators as a test to see IF the generator system was working. EVERYBODY is having problems with the...

    Need 1966 buick part

    Terry, In that case I really doubt you need a pitman arm. I would agree on lower all joints BUT probably NOT upper ball joints. They don't normally go bad. I can see a center link, strut rod/brake reaction rod bushings & rear panhard rod/track bar bushings & maybe a steering box. IF your...

    95 9C1 Caprice 12" Rotor Spindles on a 67 Electra?

    Just call Scare Bird & buy their brackets. They will give you a list of what can be used that you can find in a salvage yard or auto parts stores. I know they use the 12" rotors from I believe a '71 Riv & it's ALL bolt on. Or a 4wd Astro Van using you original spindles. Stay away from some...

    dynaflow cooler is leaking water

    You could ALSO put in a '56,'57, '58 radiator that has a cooler built into the bottom of the radiator. Only other thing is making up the lines from the trans. to the radiator. The original coolers were very in-efficent at cooling the trans. oil that's one of the reasons '53-'55 had the failure...

    401 nailhead flexplate

    Forgot to add. ANY flex plate from a '64-'66 will work all you would need to do is cut the cernter to match your end flange & of course the shims between the starter & the block. You could even stack up wahers that fit the 7/16ths. bolts between the starter & block with longer bolts of course.
