  1. Anyone have a good source for a replacement a/c compressor? or a rebuild for an original unit?
  2. Thanks Jason. I was worried about opening a can of worms. I’ll have a pro remove the trim and reseal the rear glass. Thanks again, Barry
  3. The vent panel behind the rear window has some pitting between the panel and glass that needs to be addressed. I know this is a fairly common problem so before I start tearing things apart I thought I’d seek some experience. Anyone have some words of wisdom on disassemble, drain lines, vent and reassembling? Thanks for any input. Barry
  4. Thanks Jason. I came across a 3.07 posi axle assembly stamped “PM” from a 1966 Riviera.
  5. Here’s another weight question. Any idea of the approximate weight of a 1966 Electra rear end assembly minus brake drums? Thanks for any help, Barry
  6. Did the 1965 Buick Skylark 225 V6 engine come from the factory painted red? I thought all pre 1966 Buick engines were green. What’s been your experiences? Barry
  7. Thanks for the info. I actually found my parts at Desert Valley Auto. Very well run savage yard.
  8. Im looking the 2 pieces and the long bolt for an alternator 1964-1975 300,340,350 motors Also the radiator fan and pulley for the 300. I’m not sure if the 215, 340 or 350’s will fit but if you think they will, we’ll investigate. Thanks for any help, Barry
  9. That’s a piece of art. You do great work. I’m going to put the 215 into a 1959 MGA and won’t have the engine compartment space for a turbo. Thanks for the consideration, Barry
  10. I’ve come across a couple of Carter 9400’s and a Carter 9410. Both were 400 CFM. When I mentioned modern I was thinking as still in production, new. Holley has the Classic 390 CFM but it’s a little pricey. Regarding the Pontiac with the Olds turbo jetfire, there would be double takes, head scratchers and a few grins. Regards, Barry
  11. What was the 215’s original carburetor and cfm’s. What would be a modern replacement? Thanks for any help, Barry
  12. Sean, It did turn out to be a JN coded engine. The code was under some grime. I’m planning to build a MGA with a T-5 transmission and the 215 engine with a limited slip differential. MG has a factory history with the Buick/Rover 215. Thanks to everyone for all the great info, Barry
  13. Sean, Thanks. The seller found the the serial number so the code stamp will be extremely easy. Thanks again, Barry
  14. I’m possibly buy a 1963 Skylark 215 engine and I want to make sure that it’s a JN coded engine. I don’t have the motor in front of me so I need to tell the seller over the phone where to look. It has a 4 barrel manifold, no carburetor. The engine is stamped 3J1548264, which means it’s a 1963 engine made in Michigan but where is the “JN” stamp on the block? Any information would be greatly appreciated. Thanks for any help, Barry
