  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. 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 

  3. 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 

  4. 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

  5. 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
