  4. This is the same hose that I have on the car now however it needs to be replaced. I see a lot of replacements hoses on the market that are listed for a '53 Cadillac but do not have the restrictor. My questions is does anyone have experience installing the replacement hose without the restrictor they are available from many of the Cadillac dealers
  5. I'm trying to replace the Power steering hoses on my '53 Cadillac 60S. I took the hoses to my local hydraulic hose shop for fabrication and they told me that there is a restrictor built into the pressure hose. Unfortunately they don't have the restrictor so they cant make the hoses. I've seen some of these hose for sale on the internet but they don't appear to have the restrictor.....Is this necessary to have ??...... does anyone have any experience with replacing these hoses both pressure and return hoses and do you know a supplier? Thanks Carl
  6. I recently purchased a 1969 Buick Electra Convertible thathas the optional stereo unit (not the tape player unit) mounted under the dash. I had the radio and stereo amp repaired howeverthe stereo amp was disconnect so I am unsure of how to reconnect the radio andstereo amp together. I recall seeing awiring diagram once that should the proper wiring. Does anyone know to wire these units togethercorrectly? I also have a what appears tobe a fader dial mounted in the lower access panel of the dash that must controlfrt & rear speaker any help begreatly appreciated, thanks All, Carl BCA 17588<o:p></o:p>
  7. John, thanks for the reply.. I have drum brakes all the way around the car. I'm going to be removing the rims tomorrow so that I can mount a new set of tires on my existing rims until such time that I can locate a good set of rally rims. I was hoping to have located a nice set of Rally rims so that I can only do this once....but no luck I will look to see if the "ring" is still in place on my existing rims I am assuming the register ring will provide me with information that will help me identify the correct rim, for example "Bolt Pattern" Im under the impression I need 5 on 5 pattern for my Electra
  8. <o:p> </o:p> Currently my 1969 Buick Electra Convertible has the stock 15’ rims and hubcaps. I would like to install the Buick Rally Rims. Ive been told that the 15” 5-5 bolt rims from later model Buicks from the 80’s & 90’s will work on my ’69 Buick Electra... <o:p> </o:p> can anyone with experience in this matter verify this information or can anyone tell me specific year(s) and Models from other Buicks that might work, Thank you in advance
  9. Rusty, this is the best advise with regard to starting an old engine I have ever read. I recently bought a '37 Buick which has been sitting for some time and I was searching for the same advise. You laid it out step-by-step. Excellent work!!
