  1. My 66 Riviera, non-a/c, is in need of a new power steering belt. I don’t see them listed or even a part number on the net. I’m getting ready to just go down to NAPA and have them measure the old belt but I thought I ask you guys first about part numbers and lessons learned. Thanks in advance for any input. Barry
  2. Thanks for the info. Barry
  3. Anyone have a good source for a replacement a/c compressor? or a rebuild for an original unit?
  4. 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
  5. 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
  6. Thanks Jason. I came across a 3.07 posi axle assembly stamped “PM” from a 1966 Riviera.
  7. 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
  8. 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
  9. Thanks for the info. I actually found my parts at Desert Valley Auto. Very well run savage yard.
  10. 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
  11. 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
  12. 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
  13. What was the 215’s original carburetor and cfm’s. What would be a modern replacement? Thanks for any help, Barry
  14. 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
  15. Sean, Thanks. The seller found the the serial number so the code stamp will be extremely easy. Thanks again, Barry
  16. 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
  17. I’m looking for a 4 speed manual transmission, flywheel and bellhousing for a 215 engine. If you have any of these items please contact me. Thanks, Barry
  18. Dave, Do you have any dual carb. switch pitch kickdown brackets? Anyone reproducing one? Thanks for any help, Barry
  19. I’m looking for a 57 Buick Special 2dr. (I’m not sure if 2dr. matters) hood in good shape in the Mid Atlantic state area. I could also meet at Fall Carlisle or Hershey. Thanks, Barry
  20. I’m looking for a 1963 425 nailhead “JW” code. Complete for rebuilding. I’ll be at the Gettysburg event this month and could pickup there. Thanks for any help, Barry
  21. I found a salvage one from a club member. Never did come across a crossover part.
  22. I’m looking for a heater blower motor for my 57 Special. My squirrel cage is fine. Is there a crossover part? Thanks for any help, Barry
  23. Thanks for reply. I sheared one bolthead off years ago so when I pulled the motor last month all the others came out ok with some finesse. Even the sheared bolt came out with heat and vise grips. Thanks again, Barry
