  1. Never mind. Set up coming from New Mexico.
  2. Need the whole works from pedal rod to the carb. Thanks.
  3. I need '56 Special throttle assembly. Pedal rod, brackets, mounts, etc. It mounts to the driver side head. Thanks. ghaskett@hctc.com
  4. Anyone have luck finding replacement body mount bushings in the after market vs some of the Buick sites. Thanks!
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. I don't have torque tube issues. Open driveline now. Just wondering if anyone has put a Gear Vendors in a 122" wheelbase '56.
  8. It looks like I'll need the Jaws of Life for this job. Is my assumption far off?
  9. 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.
  10. 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.
  11. Any issues with switching out standard headlamps with Halogen headlamps? I have alternator in place of the old generator. Thanks.
  12. Thanks to both of you for the input. George
  13. I don't have high beams. The dash mounted high beam indicator red light works. Low beam works. The switch is new. The high beam and high beam indicator utilize a gray wire. Somewhere along the way the wire splits. One part goes to the indicator and the other goes out to the headlights. So, my guess is that the problem lies somewhere from the split out to the headlights. Gee, the wires are only 63 years old! The other hairball thought is that I've lost high beam in both lamps. Could happen, I suppose, but it's a stretch. Thanks.
