  2. Rusty is right. I have had just this problem before. I will add that just because you can hear the pump, does not mean it is pumping fuel. I did not see where you have blown out the lines. I does not take very many flakes of rust ( which you probably disturbed at the beginning of the thread when draining and then sloching a gallon of good fuel and redraining), to prevent the fuel from traveling where it needs to go. I think you need to blow some air with the fuel tank cap "off". and you may have to remove the pump and see whats going on with that if you get reverse air flow.
  3. Yes, you nailed it. The Figaro will be one of the most sought after very rare cars of the 90s. It is now.
  4. Hello Everyone, I have made a half hearted attempt to sell my wifes Buick Special Wagon, that she no longer drives, because I like it so much. Really clean and neat car. V-6, 198, all vinyl interior,"childProof". I keep paying storage on this car, and would like to find a Buick Person to own it. The Car is in Massachusetts, in a nice dry garage, easily accessible by transport truck. Runs great, with the 2 speed dual path Auto transmission. Tuurned 48,000 late this fall, for the first time! Drivers side of ffront seat is a little squishy because of worn springs, and has a 6 inch split. Golf ball size dent under the rear bumper that can easily be bumped out. Has 15 inch wheels, that came as a factory option. Currantly has low sidewall tires which do not provide the best ride. Wheel bearings, inner and outer, replaced this summer and I rebuilt the Master cylinder also. Lots of brake left on the shoes. Inspected and registered yearly, driven very little. Radio needs something, and there is the fm converter mounted under the dash in the usual spot. Excellent heat,, good gas mileage, no burnouts! I have reduced the price, in hopes of finding a Buick Home for this nice car. The car was resprayed before I owned it, and looks great. It was painted in its original Artic white in Mirror magic laquer. NO Rust! Car spent most of its life in Florida in a Garage, then came back to Massachusetts. I have reduced the Price to $6,500, and is priced and placed here only, for you Buick Owners. Please note that some pics give the car a creamy yellow appearence, car is Artic White Please contact me for a full compliment of Pictures. PM or emailme at or call David @ 978-335-8739 eastern time
