  1. Nothing like hearing it come to life after extensive work in the guts.
  2. I recall the odd/even fire. I did not know when the switch was made between the two. My 78 Regal was equipped with the V6. It was trouble free well past 100k miles. I also recall some trouble concerning a balanced running V6. Not sure if going odd to even played a part in a balanced running V6. Either way, the Buick V6 has become an engineering success.
  3. What type of valve slows the gas while in the bowl? In other words, is the gas just blowing by/threw the carb and returning to the tank? Something internal to the carb?
  4. Some use Pertronix with good success. I still use points with good success. At the end of the day it is up to you. However, as little I drive my Buicks my points should last to 2035. Maybe beyond.
  5. Looking for a rear lower shock mount. 60 Buick Electra.
  6. I installed one of these in my 54 13 years ago. As well as new points. No issues. https://www.ebay.com/p/1240587932 Check your vacuum advance is holding vacuum. The plate that holds the points and condenser is in fact moving. And if course the dwell is in spec. Once you verified the ignition as good....look at the carb once again. I know it was rebuilt but...check it again.
