  1. Thanks for the input. Really appreciated.
  2. Here's the resistor. It's a Delco-Remy 1933547 1.25 ohms. This is the one attached to the plenium and is for the heater blower motor. Tried to cross reference with no luck. It's listed as obsolete. No kidding? There are two small ceramic chunks inside the coiled wire. I
  3. My '56 has two engine well resistors. One is a pretty standard looking resistor for the coil. The other is a larger version and it is for the heater blower motor. On the back side there is a wire coil and within that coil is a white substance (like a chunk of coral) that is broken in two or three spots. My question: Can I replace that resistor with a standard size resistor, or do I need to find an exact duplicate? Thanks.
  4. Never mind. Set up coming from New Mexico.
  5. Need the whole works from pedal rod to the carb. Thanks.
  6. I need '56 Special throttle assembly. Pedal rod, brackets, mounts, etc. It mounts to the driver side head. Thanks. ghaskett@hctc.com
  7. Anyone have luck finding replacement body mount bushings in the after market vs some of the Buick sites. Thanks!
  8. Thanks RE: Shiftworks. I already have other issues covered. The heap already has dual quad 401, Turbo 400 and complete Jaguar IRS in her. I have a 700R4 and adapter for it and was concerned about the shifter, that's all.
  9. Has anyone hooked up a 700R4 to a '56 Buick? If so, what did you do about the column shift when you had to go from 2 speed to 4 speed shift points. Thanks.
  10. I don't have torque tube issues. Open driveline now. Just wondering if anyone has put a Gear Vendors in a 122" wheelbase '56.
  11. It looks like I'll need the Jaws of Life for this job. Is my assumption far off?
  12. 3:31 JAG IRS and at 65mph I'm slinging around 25, 2600 rpm. Gear Vender is a constant 0.78. I am looking for info from anyone who has bolted one up in a '56 X frame Thanks.
  13. I have a '56 with 1965 dual quad 401 and SP400. I was looking at the Gear Vendor Overdrive and am wondering if anyone has put one in a '56 and if so, did you have to modify the 'X' in the frame. I know all about adapting a 700R4, but I'm really interested in the Gear Vendor. Thanks.
