  1. 1955 Century Brake Mystery

    It does not take much for a bearing to fail. Non-spinning heat creating bearings would fail in a few miles IMO.
  2. My new Cascada

    Glad you are enjoying the Buick. Nice to hear the quality in the build is there.

  4. 1960 401 cranking rpm

    Just a thought if you can not get the starter to rotate as fast as you require for bleeding the pump. Take the belt off the pump. Start the engine. Let it warm. Reduce the RPM to as low as she will go without cutting off. Install the pump belt. Start the car for bleeding.
  5. '50 Special with a single auxiliary light?

    Any telltale wiring running anywhere near this hole?
  6. Show us your Vintage tools

    Just picked this up. Darn thing is practically new. Works well.
  7. 1955 Engine Rebuild

    I reassembled without gaskets. Worked just dandy.
  8. Drive train noise and vibration

    Sounds like my 88 Monte Carlo. Vibration straight out of the dealership. Pinion replaced. Solved that horrible thumping. But...still had a constant vibration at highway speeds. New wheels and tires installed. No joy. However, found a drum was not balanced from the factory.

    A new set if rear coil springs will set you straight. I had similar issue with my Special. Butt dragging with a few people in the back. Dropped in new coils. Problem solved. The coils can be had for about $60-90 depending on where you purchase the coils. https://www.1954buick.com/topic/2186-new-rear-coil-springs/#comment-12862

    The addition of new rear springs helped my Special handling.

    The springs should help but may make the ride a bit harsher. These may also raise the ride height was well. Lower center of gravity reduces as a result.

    What type of handling are you looking for? There was one member that was manufacturing stiffer front sway bars that those who installed claimed to have made a big difference in body roll. Not sure if he is making these sway bars any longer. Got a little way to go for this:
  15. Best adhesive for late 70's/80's emblems

    I have always seen the use of the 3M product. I believe local autoparts stores carry what you need. It is sticky stuff.
