    14" drum conversion

    That is a personal choice and depends on what you want for your car. Myself, I would always restore the original or another original column, I like close to original appearance.

    50 Roadmaster steering gear lube

    I would have just used a 90 weight gear oil :( The only reason anything should leak out is the seal or the sealing surface of the leak is damaged. An oil choice shouldn't make any difference except in the speed at which the oil can seep through the flaw.

    263 Buick Street Build

    I have done up a couple of DynoSym5 files for a stock 263 Buick, and one on a 263 I am putting together. If you use DynoSym5, you can take these files and drop them in your "Engine File" directory for future use. If you improve these please post the improvements back here!

    Straight 8 and Dyaflow Trans swap.

    1975 Century wagon

    Probably the only hope you have of ensuring fit will be, when you order them from which ever supplier you choose, discuss your application with them and get their assurance (preferably in writing) that the parts will fit or can be returned. Then open packaging neatly! Experience has it, that...

    1966 Buick Riviera : Steering wheel

    Sorry, I don't understand easily. I take it all the tie rod ends are new. Regardless, 2 people one looking through the steering assembly from the steering wheel on down while the other plays with the wheel should find the problem, is the steering box adjusted properly? The person watching should...

    Motor mount frame support

    Here is another shot with a good nailhead engine mount sitting in place. I left the damaged one where it was in the first picture to help with orientation. No desert, and this time of year our grounds maintenance crew has a tough time keeping up, but then the supervisor is a donkey and his four...

    1970 Buick skylark 350 Flywheel ring gear problem

    Small block Chevys use a 168 or older ones use a 153 tooth ring gear. Be careful what 350 you may be shopping for. When shopping on ebay and you search for Buick 350/whatever, you will get sbc parts marked "will fit Buick" when they are for a sbc only motor. This is because the sbc 350 was put...
