  1. Thank you for the replies. The reason I was asking was because I have a 3D printer that I want to use to make parts for my Riviera. I have ABS filament, so I wanted to see if I could replicate a gauge holder if an optional one was available. I am about to start restoring my interior so I'll see what ideas for parts pop up as I progress. Chris
  2. Were there any dealer installed optional gauges available from GM for 1963 to 1965 Rivieras? I know of the tachometer. Any others? Thank you Chris
  3. I appreciate the offer. Unfortunately, I am in San Diego, CA. Chris
  4. Thanks Mitch. I'll keep looking for a 64 specific. Chris
  5. I'm glad I asked. Might not be worth the trouble as said above.
  6. Hey all, I was looking to pick up an ST400 from a 1965 Riviera to rebuild for fun and learn a thing or two. Is the 1965 ST400 a direct bolt-on to a 1964 Riviera 425? I searched but couldn't find anything conclusive except the stator for the switch pitch is two prong on the 1965. Thank you Chris
  7. Personally, I would not do business with a company that has a WordPress domain name. I would imagine a company that is providing a service such as this would use a domain that they purchase and use a pay hosting service. Just my opinion. Chris
  8. What was the issue? It will be good info for future searches of the same subject.
  9. My car is not here but I'll have access to it tomorrow. I'll let you know where I tapped the power and the ground. Chris
  10. I've been buying my Buick parts from bestoffercounts on ebay, including the retainer. He's a great guy. He's got a website too. For the battery...I got one from Interstate but the lower cost offshore model. I believe it says green power on it. 27f group I think. I'll check when I get home. Chris
  11. I fully concur. My car's odometer has flipped once I'm sure. Does that mean the timing chain may have been taken care of? Again, the car runs beautifully but i want to catch up on the maintenance, if that's even possible! Thank you Chris
  12. I'm just randomly worried about sludge. The car runs fine and the dipstick reads true. I always try to live by the motto: "If it ain't broke...". I'll still change out the mounts. Thank yoU! I was planning on doing the valve cover gaskets and maybe some new covers so I'll go this route first. Chris

    good luck with sale! That is one of my bucket list cars. Chris
  14. Hello all, My Riviera runs fine right now but I am concerned with sludge in the oil pan. Is there a way to tell if there is an issue with sludge build up without removing the pan? I know the engine needs to be lifted a bit for the pan to clear and that's why i hesitate to do it. If I decide to change the engine mounts and the transmission mount, would there be a lot more steps involved to dropping the pan? Will any of this involve removing the transmission cooler lines from the radiator? Thank you in advance. Chris
  15. I vacuumed tuned my edelbrock carb. I followed a YouTube that was made by edelbrock. It was quite easy and I didn't really do much since it seemed well tuned for the southern California environment. I used a vacuum port off the carb.
