Going to move towards RWD chassis soon, so it's more fun to use. Z7 kit needs gone, MP112/L26 chillin', 2 GenV's on ice, and T67 currently on my L32. Cheaper than LSx playtime yo tinker with this.

@  dezldave961 : (06 August 2021 - 11:40 PM)

I'll gladly do mega builds with my stash! Getting stationed at a new spot next year, and might need projects.

@  kevandkaye : (05 August 2021 - 10:52 PM)

How cool would it be for everyone here who has leftover parts, send them ALL to one person for a superbuild? Sorry, peeked in and got chatty!

@  kevandkaye : (05 August 2021 - 10:50 PM)

Sure am missing the days when Buicks were built by Buick.

@  kevandkaye : (05 August 2021 - 10:50 PM)

Paul's a mod?!?! I take you more for a resto......

@  ejguillot : (03 August 2021 - 10:28 PM)

Well, my project Buick is dead. Piston smacked a valve, piston/block/head is trashed. That killed my enthusiasm. Will be posting a parts for sale list real soon.

@  Marchi1 : (22 July 2021 - 05:30 PM)

Its even worse... he has been a memeber for 13 years and has 2 active posts.....

@  dezldave961 : (21 July 2021 - 11:38 PM)

Some people don't know how the internet works, and think deleting after posting somehow works like an Etch-A-Sketch. (You made 2 posts 13yrs ago about fixing an ignition switch, which I'd never know if you didn't ask about deleting... Look up Streisand Effect.)

@  Marchi1 : (21 July 2021 - 01:53 AM)

and just quit using it. there is very little update and while I can delete it why would you?

@  Marchi1 : (21 July 2021 - 01:52 AM)

that hurst I have been here in less than months

@  esqueue : (15 July 2021 - 05:50 PM)

A moderator hasn't been here for months

@  esqueue : (15 July 2021 - 05:48 PM)

How do I get my account deleted?

SELLING 99GS SEE FORUM, THANK YOU

@  dezldave961 : (16 June 2021 - 11:10 PM)

Good deal. I'll be resolving some issues when I get back from a work trip, as well.

@  ejguillot : (14 June 2021 - 01:05 PM)

Also rechecked the flexplate and rocker arm bolts, all were torqued to spec.

@  ejguillot : (14 June 2021 - 01:05 PM)

Update on the tap/knock noise: resolved most of it by resealing my exhaust. Front header to crossover pipe leak - noise at 1/2 engine RPM.

@  ejguillot : (04 June 2021 - 07:15 PM)

I'll recheck those, thanks for the heads up.

@  dezldave961 : (03 June 2021 - 04:50 PM)

Also, check that the rockers are all torqued, still. Re-usable bolts like to be around 25 or so, but settling in from running may back one out that was torqued while partially under load on a cam lobe.

@  dezldave961 : (03 June 2021 - 04:48 PM)

Did you do anything with the flexplate? Those 3 bolts tend to come loose and rattle over time, if not torqued with loctite.

@  ejguillot : (03 June 2021 - 04:46 PM)

doing OK. Tune's all fixed, but hearing a tap/knock noise from my engine that is no longer fading with higher RPM. Not good.

While driving into race way park in my 2000 GS guy drove buy and waived at me with a nod of approval. He was driving a new turbo GS. Funny note: I really like my GS and gloat about it sometimes to my Girlfriend. She doesnt get it... Makes fun of it and calls it grandmas car. So when he waived and nodded I instantly said See he knows. She started laughting and sarcastically shook her head.

She may still come around. Mine hasn't yet and thinks it's too old. Too old! Geez.

If I thought 10 years was too old for a car, I sure wouldn't be where I am now. Hmm, maybe I should be listening to her instead!

 

Well, probably not. Gotta enjoy some things in life. Bet that guy in the turbo has had one of ours in the past as well. Or maybe got beat by one!

When we call them Grandma's, or Grandpa's car, we mean that as a compliment, and sort of an inside tongue-in-cheak joke. Rather than just a joke.

 

Have fun.

 

Paul

Haha little late for that. She loves older classic cars, old pick ups and jeeps. Everyone has their own taste. Some like sleeper buicks (us) some like hondas, some like classics or musscle cars. To each their own!

When it comes down to it, my wife's all about my car...because of the butt warmers, lmao.

 

She doesn't care much for the looks of it, but loves the space and heated seats. Not a HUGE fan of the 93 fuel, nor gas consumption though.

i just bought my wife a second car to drive and keep the miles off of the Sky Redline. I got her a 2012 LaCrosse Premium II. She said well It's official  "I'm old now"  lol  I told her to wait for the exhaust and tune upgrades. :)
