  1. 1965 Riviera GS on Hemmings: https://www.hemmings.com/classifieds/dealer/buick/riviera/2469018.html I am somewhat new to the Riviera world, and am actually looking for a '63-'64, but this one is interesting.

My repair manuals said nothing about it, and as I've learned from working on cars my whole life, when what you're doing isn't working, try something else! Somehow I had the idea to try to loosen it by turning it to the right, and it worked.
  5. Hello! You sound "young" so let me first say how wonderful it is to have some younger blood come into the hobby. I also wholeheartedly agree with the suggestion to join/attend a local AACA meeting/show.You don't say what part of the country you're in, but presuming that you are in the U.S., there are cruise nights and car shows just about every weekend during the summer, in almost every part of the country. If VWs are where your interest lies, join the VW club! I work with many people in the 20s and 30s who are into VWs in a big way, and while most of them like the water-cooled cars, I do th
