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.

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.

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?

@  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.

So I have a lift reserved for inspection before I fork over the dough, tips and suggestions as to what else to check and where greatly appreciated, one thing I can tell you is it has paint damage on passenger side from the previous owner scraping against things, will share pics if I get it but want to make sure I'm not buying a piece of crap lol



i wish more people did this, even if it costs you money its an investment and you can use whats wrong to lower the price. 


i did the same when i found mine. it was listed for 1600. i got them down to 800.  i went right to 500 after i had a page long list of "needs".  settled at 800. 


when i got it, its first hand wash and wax job.  it was still turd ish looking.




then i got a buffer and made the paint come back to life. 




then of course with a 800 dollar car, its gonna need some work as listed. new front end, new seats, tint, pin striping removed added a spoiler new console you name it i changed it pretty much already lol  


oh, should you get soft or flat tires over night, its the wheels leaking, not the tires. why i got sts wheels on it now.

It must just be the reflection from above that gives it that look. Looks awesome!

black box is the shnizzle lol   harbor freight orbital buffer and lake county pads, best investment ever. if you like clear shinny paint. 


this was how the hand wax went down, rather sad and dull. 




then after i used my brothers porter cable orbital buffer.  nothing more then liquid turtle wax compound, and turtle wax WAX. 





it now gets nothing more then a spring and fall wax, still using just plain old turtle wax on the buffer.  ive tried some of them hi price products and they dont seem to last as long to me.
