  1. Hi Gene cheers...just sent email thanks kev
  2. Hi all i live in UK and want to double check something before I mAke a purchase ...been caught out before... I have a ‘65..with regards rear passenger side fender I need all the stainless steel trim - so that’s the curved wheel well, and two straight strips either side , one to bumper and other to door. I’ve found all three but they are described as being applicable for ‘63-‘65. to double check , did these bits of trim remain unchanged through those years as suggested by seller Or were they in fact Year specific? thanks in advance
  3. Hi All I'm researching a now defunct Buick dealer in Baltimore that sold my Riviera new in 1965. Address on the invoice is: Buick - The Motor Sales Company 26 W.Mt Royal Avenue Baltimore 1 (Saratoga 7-3311) . I'm pretty sure that the attached post card promo is the same place...though address on card doesn't quote no.26 - just street names and Saratoga 3311 - whatever that refers to... Would anyone know of a resource/individual who collects details of old buick dealers as i'd really like to find an actual photo - searched all over the web and via va
  4. Just watched a TV show where a ‘69 Corvette with a 350 was dyno tested at 145 HP...the points were then changed to an electronic set up and the new test showed 190 HP..that’s a huge improvement.. I know the supposed advantages to reliability - don’t want to open that debate again or what’s best make to use...but is that kind of HP improvement really achievable?? Sounds too good to be true... kev
  5. ...with transmission still in as well? For a ‘65 Riv with a 401 ...is it a two piece seal ?
  6. Def from inside the trans? I had very similar sounding noise from that general area....in my case I’d describe it as a clicking, and like you only under acceleration/load...but in my case not in Park.....anyway, did same test as you and turned out to be coming from the very front UV joint on prop shaft...where it connects to trans...so maybe could be mistaken as coming from the trans itself? the other tell take sign was rust coloured dust around the UV joint. Maybe a long shot but if this does turn about your issue be careful where you get replacement UV joints from...a
  7. ...update #2...after re-examining the balance I decided very quickly that I would not remove grille after all😀...immediately obvious that the valance isn’t coming out easy! At least I now know how the front end connects together... Kev
  8. as an update, if anyone searches this subject and finds this post... looking at a pic of a front valance on ebay it looks like their are seven 'dimples' which suggests that the grill has seven matching external mounting points which sit in these dimples...the studs screw up into the grill mounting points....so even with studs removed the valance needs to be dropped a bit - or completely...to allow the grille to be pulled out... i think...we'll see how i get on Kev
  9. Hi all I’m tryng to get my grille out for cleaning etc. I’ve removed the three bolt across the top and all 7 studs across the bottom...grille wobbles but doesn’t seem to want to come out....reluctant to force it ....am I missing something? Or does it need a bit of ‘help’? I’ve even removed two additional bolts, one at either end of underside just past last stud... Past posts suggest maybe the ‘valance’ piece just behind bumper has to be moved but others say grille should just be pulled out with removal of studs... thanks in advance ke
  10. aha - had already seen a brand new GF98 listed elsewhere but for all the listings a 1965 Riviera wasn't included in the suitable applications drop down list..up to this point have been looking for a GF423...but OPGI shows a 98 is OK... BTW would you agree that its not a good idea to use a NOS filter? Kev
  11. Hi All I've seen a couple of NOS AC fuel filters for sale - but my instinct suggests to avoid using as they must have a (expired) shelf life? But if i want anything except those horrible (and too small) shiny things is there an alternative that looks like what in my minds eye fuel filters looked like back in the day? The guys who win best of class at shows must have something that looks original from somewhere? Checked CARS and similar but only see the usual offerings... Many thanks Kev
  12. Hi all can anyone advise correct colour of the bendix cap? I’ve had a look at some pics on the group and I see some are black..but some are grey/metallic ... thanks in advance .. kev
  13. Hi all re my 65 Riv , A/C, 401ci. ive checked my manual re correct routing of return fuel line and all seemed straightforward. However on the car itself I can’t see any clips/strap as shown in manual, IE after routing line under A/C compressor. BTW don’t know if it’s an A/C modified car (as noted as a possibility on diagram) so I don’t know if its a strap or clip that I should be looking for. Either way unless I’m blind can’t see either. which is surprising as absolutely everything else on the car is still as per manual - very original.
