    Was wondering if anyone knows if there is someone that makes the cardboard panels for the SPORT headliners. I have a 64 wildcat that spent its entire life in So Cal. Nothing left of the headliner. Would prefer not to install a standard vinyl lheadliner.

    64 wildcat radio

    Thanks Much. If anyone is looking for one, I know where an NOS AM radio is. Complete with new faceplate and speaker. For the Special and probably Skylark also.

    64 wildcat radio

    I have access to a brand new Buick AM Radio for a 64 Special.. Am wondering if it will fit in my Wildcat. It comes with a new front speaker and knobs. Still in the factory box and never been installed. I think the price is reasonable but want to make sure it will fit. Also looking for the Wildcat Rings and emblems. Mounted on the side of the roof. (I let a pair slip by a few months back)

    Parts yard

    I do not know if this is allowed here, but here goes. This is a rant on a wrecking yard. I had the misfortune of dealing with a place called Billions & Trillions in Oklahoma. After calling and ordering a hard to find part, I waited for 2 weeks for delivery. When I called about my order I was informed that the studs broke off upon removal and that they were sent in for repair. Was told it would take about 2 weeks. I called today to check and now was informed that they were never sent in for repair. I was also informed that my money was refunded 3 weeks ago. (that is O.K. by me) My rant is there was never a return call to inform me. I am just wondering if they are in business to sell parts what ever happened to customer service. The person was very rude and obnoxious. Makes me wonder how they even stay in business. Now I will have to spend more time researching for the part I need. I found the part from someone else, but was priced way out of affordability. That's my rant and I'm sticking to it

    bucket seTS

    I asked this question before, but cannot find the results. I have a 64 wildcat sport coupe with buckets. I am looking for complete interior kit. I think the seats from a Riviera are the same, but a different pattern. Also think all 62-64 GM buckets are the same. (different base mounting). I am just doing a driver and don't care so much about the pattern. Any help (again) is appreciated.

    vibration dampener

    When putting my engine back together I noticed that my vibration dampener keyway is 7/16 vs the key on the crankshaft is 1/4. Seems to me I may have the wrong dampener. I am afraid it will slip even after being torqued down and cause a timing problem My car is a 64 but my engine is a 66 Thanks

    oil pressure update

    For those who may be interested, I have installed the correct plugs in the oil passages. (not to far in) (flush with the block).. I now have oil pressure at the heads and the rockers. Engine is completed and back in the car. Again, many thanks to all with comments and troubleshooting. Could not have done it without your help. And again, thanks to Russ Martin at Centerville for his much needed help. P.S. This whole fiasco was caused by me and not paying attention. The shop I took the engine to did exactly what I asked to be done. Wasn't their fault. Just me.

    oil pressure again

    For all to know. I used a good quality awl and punched a hole in the plugs. Installed a dent puller and they all came out. Talked to Russ MArtin at Centerville this a.m. Just want to say Kudos about Russ. He took the time to give the instructions on the correct installation procedures . Also know that the cam bearings are installed correctly. I expect the new plugs on Friday so I will let everyone know how it goes. Also just want to say many thanks to all for the help. Dennis

    oil pressure again

    Have talked to Russ at Centerville this a.m. I installed the plugs all the way to the stops. WRONG. Only install them flush with the block. I will reorder plugs and install them flush as they should be, This old age is getting the better of me.

    oil pressure again

    That's what I am thinking. Now I just have to figure out how to remove the plug without leaving metal in the oil gallery. I have an electric stud gun for pulling dents. I may try to weld a stud on it and pulling it out that way.

    oil pressure again

    Have both rockers off. Still nothing. Pulled camshaft back out. Front bearing is in correctly. I can put a scribe through the holes. However what I did find is when checking the bottom hole in the bearing that my scribe goes all the way through in front of the main gallery plug.. I have the plug up against the stop but maybe it should be flush. I don't really know. I can also see the bottom hole in the gallery. The plug is covering about half of the bottom hole.

    oil pressure again

    I finally found the empty hole for a plug. (back of the lifter gallery. (left side facing the engine.) Installed the plug. Still no oil to the rockers. I do have the timing cover off, but cannot see where that would make a difference.
