  1. Can't I get more help on this topic?? Really need to resolve the issue with these soft, spongy brakes. I plan to tow in the next several weeks and I'm wondering if this ABS system is a help or hindrance???? All help-thoughts-suggestions, experience with this brake system is appreciated.
  2. Thanks for your insight. I may have ti live with this, but will continue to wish others can provide some additional info. I have been told that some people have actually removed this setup for better braking. We'll look into that as well.
  3. Sorry for the late reply. I have 2-1961 Buicks, plus a 64 Buick Skylark Wagon which I am trying to sell. Am restoring my 61 LeSabre Convertible. The 64 is rare, as it is a 64 early Skylark Wagon. As far as I can tell, 64 only year for a Skylark wagon. Have a ton of NOS parts for it. My age and health force sale of this gem. Want it to go to a good home.
  4. I just recently purchased a 96 Suburban K1500 4x4. It's loaded with all the 'bells and whistles' including the ABS system. Having never driven a vehicle with this system, I am having quite a time adjusting to this braking system. I will be using this van for towing. The brakes are presently very soft. This after replacing the front calipers, pads and rear brake shoes and bleeding the entire brake system. I have not started towing yet, but the low 'soft' pedal has me really worried. Previously, I had an 89 4x4 that would stop on a dime No ABS. I understand there were problems with this system. some people simply remove it; other replace the module. I'd like to hear from users in this group on the best advice on what to do to achieve a firm pedal. Thanks to ALL for your help!!

  9. Just stumbled upon a shop in California that specializes in rebuilding Dynaflows and other early transmissions. I just have a feeling that he is expensive. (Just my gut feeling). Since Dynaflow rebuilders are getting rare, I'm posting the name of the shop and website. The shop is located outside Bakersfield, California. http://www.vintagetransmissionrebuilding.com/ Email: rsylvis@sbcglobal.net
  10. I am trying to find a 61-63 Dynaflow torque converter for parts. Sure would appreciate your help. Thanks in Advance!! Converter pump in upper left corner needed most.
  11. I'd like to add a name to the list of Dynaflow rebuilders. Owner Rick Smith at Henderson Transmission in Henderson, Nevada does Dynaflow rebuilds, along with other classic rebuild transmissions. The website is www.hendersontransmission.com .
  12. Looking for good used front pump plate out of a Dynaflow tranny 1957 to 1963. Not sure if earlir years are the same. Typically, this part causes complete unit failure. Many times, the front pump gouges out the front of the pump plate for a variety of reasons. The one from my transmission has a slight gouge. I don't want to take a chance and put it in. So hoping for a nice used one. Thanks everyone!!
