  1. TV shows like macgyver were pretty bad for that sort of thing, there was an episode of it that was probably 90% the same clips used in man in a suitcase. The other thing that with a lot of shows now we can see them in high definition is that you can read things that previously you wouldn't have, so it exposes a lot of stuff as well
  2. Is anyone aware if there is/was anyone making a hose for a grease gun with an alemite pin on one end and 1/8" on the other? I have an adaptor that converts zerk to the alemite pin and it adds too much bulk and generally makes a mess- so would like to be able to grease without using an adaptor
  3. Could be Holden pistons, not sure if they ever crossed over in size with buick
  4. Might help people if you take the back cover off and take a photo of the impeller (your price is very fair though but shipping could be expensive given the weight)
  5. I cant' remember where I read it but I vaguely recall someone talking about being able to get natural floating cork from a fishing supply place (for nets) - never tried so don't know how practical it is
  6. Early cadillac motors are much much more complicated to work on than the Buick, you’re just as likely to hit some other problem with it thats more of a hassle
  7. Our state is still running 80's era mainframe, the last attempt to replace it was about $110m before they gave up Like a lot of things they're a victim of their own success where they worked well for so many years they had low investment which eventually catches up with you
  8. It's interesting that here has been the total opposite from pretty much all the states, they added far more online so that you didn't have to go into see anyone any more. The renewals on our equivilant YOM plates you just submit a photo with proof of your membership to a club and within 48 hours they process it
  9. I believe it's at the back of the shop manual - due to lockdowns I can't get to my copy and the v63 book that is digitised has the page that it would be on missing
  10. I read that as consumption during the testing not 1000 miles
  11. would have been a pretty niche vehicle, the one that’s a shame that didn’t get a go was the territory (might have needed some styling tweaks for the American market) but they drove nearly as nicely as an X5 for a third of the price. I suspect that had far more to do with risk of cannibalising domestic products
  12. Interesting on that sheet is appears consumption of 1 pint of oil is considered acceptable
  13. If it’s like the Cadillac (which I think the 20 is) you’ll hear a clunk and it won’t crank if it’s not in alignment. Release pedal and try again if that’s all that’s happening
  14. Also, it’s normal for it to sometimes not to mesh - is it happening consistently
