  15. I finally got my buick running again (yes!!!!). So i worked on it for a while more like a year (back burner) lol. It was overheating so i change the spark plugs, wires, belt, ignition coil, cap rotor. I found a NOS water jacket cover that i needed because original one had a hole in the back. Cleaned out a lot of gunk inside the passages where jacket cover was. Took down the oil pan as well remove old oil gunk. i installed a thermostat that it didn't have once i remove the thermostat housing. installed New hoses flushed out radiator. Im still running hot temperatures reaching close to 212f. This was while driving in the streets around the block about 20min. Anyone know a solution to keep it lower? or this buick just run hot. Thanks in advance
  16. Do you have a idea what it should be? the posh rod cover is 5Lb of torque i think that should be enough?
  17. hi, everyone. I was able to find a water jacket cover NOS part. my car up and running again (yes!!!). My question is what are the torque specs for the bolts on the water jacket cover? also on the thermostat housing? thanks or if anyone have a link to all the torque specs for the engine would be greatly appreciate. i found one but not to much torque specs on it .
