    1956 Buick Power Wipers/Washer conversion

    Update: So today I spent some time more than 5 mins of checking the vacuum with a gauge and closing the hood. My manual pump is shot and pulls 0 vacuum. My intake holds 10-12 at idle. The 93 blazer with the 4.3 v6 was holding 12 at idle. The little vacuum pump held 15-16 when power was applied to it. Holding 16 on a wet windshield my wipers still struggled and were slow to move if at all. So I removed the wiper motor and turned the pump on. The motor worked and cycled just fine but when I grabbed the cam the motor stopped and had no torque. When the motor was stopped I could hear air bypassing the paddle. I could operate the wipers by turning the actuator on the firewall. So I've concluded that my pump is shot and the vac pump in theory would work if the motor was good. last time my wipers stopped it was because the dual action fuel pump vac side stopped pumping. I tested the motor on a good vacuum source. That was ten years ago and I didn't think to check my motor when I installed the vac pump before I made the above post.

    1956 Buick Power Wipers/Washer conversion

    I bought this set up before reading this thread to make a electro-vacuum unit hybrid. Unfortunately it pulls the same amount of vacuum after routing the hoses as the car makes at idle. The wipers work the same as pulling directly off the intake even with the pump operating.
  3. I did stop by not long after I bought it. You thanked me for "saving" you from going to look at it.
  4. My 69 Lesabre was built in the Atlanta plant. Sold new in Cornelia Ga sold in Cleveland Ga and now resides in Tennessee. I tried to get it back to no avail. The letters are nice and you shouldn't have issue selling them.

    1955 Century 322 and dynaflow

    I have a 1955 Century 322 with dynaflow attached for sale. It has the 4bbl wcfb the secondaries are seized and it has the complete air breather with thermostat bracket. no generator. no spark plug covers. everything else appears to be there. running condition unknown $500 asking plus shipping. Was keeping it as parts for my 56 but I got a cj and would rather jeep parts have.

    56 not mine

    Even if it was free I'd almost pass on that. As soon you tried to winch it on the trailer I suspect it would rip into pieces. That thing is quite rough.

    72 Skylark 350/350 2D hardtop

    I was working in a different town came across a Buick in a yard. I left a note to find out more about it. Owner called and said it was for sale. I have just bought a truck and a trip to Colorado so I'm not in the market but said I would pass on the info. 72 Skylark 2D hardtop 350/350 150k or so gsx stripes and spoiler gs sport hood silver white interior bench seat column shift has damage in the drivers front. headlight buckets fender and I think the hood may have been touched too. i only got one picture as I had not talked to the owner and didn't want to go rooting around in someone's yard. price is asking $6500 and location is Buford ga close to the mall of ga. if anyone is interested I will pm the owners contact info. I'm not posting here due to respect to him.

    56 4dr hardtop special, not mine

    I like the thought of buying this and making a 56 4d convertible. Maybe fabricating a fiberglass removable hardtop. Be a great start and wouldn't feel bad about cutting up a good car.

    Another Road Side Find - 1954 Willys

    Every hood you ever find is rusted. I was not around when they were new but I suspect they were rusting on the dealer showrooms. Good cars but parts are almost impossible to find. Other than drive train parts shared with jeeps. Also they are unibody cars so if the body is rusted it can be structurally compromised.

    WTB Turn Signal Switch "56" Special

    I have one in a 55 century. Unsure if it works or not. If it will work for your car I can pull it for you.
