  1. Wanted to reach out to the Kings of Buick Riviera to see if there was some good/great advice when selecting a stereo for the 66 Riviera. Any purchase types, types & install info for the beginner. Also, I know there's a 6x9 in the rear but does anybody know what size is in the front?Thanks & have a great Memorial Day weekend.
  2. Does the 65 work on the 66? Thanks. I will check.
  3. Great info. May I ask how do you tell it's missing the cornering lamp option? Also, if anybody knows where I could find one or a place to rebuild, that would be great. Thanks!
  4. Does anybody know where I can find a switch for a tilt wheel 66 Riviera GS?
  5. Looking for assistance in locating a radiator for my Riviera GS. May have to just get this one fixed. Any recommendations out there?
  6. Good day Kreed. Is it possible you still have the fan shroud? Question: does anyone know what material the shroud was fabricated from? Also, are the Rally wheels for the 66 Riv GS still available?
  7. Any luck finding a fan shroud? I am in need as well.
  8. Thank you all for the great responses. I purchased the 7041304 and that fixed all the acceleration hesitation. Not a glitch. The 240 will be getting rebuilt at some point. Starting is still slightly tough. Starter is probably the culprit there.
  9. Where is the part# stamp on the 7041304? Does it look like this? I have a better pic of the "304" on ebay. I'm guessing he's trying to pull a fast one.
  10. Thank you very much y'all. Any idea's on the hesitation? I changed the fuel pump and filter with no change. I can only assume it it's the carb. I actually had the 204 rebuilt but it did't change anything. Two mechanics since then say it's the float on the carb.
  11. Looking for a reputable carb rebuilder. I have a Qjet 7041304 & 240 both in need of being rebuilt. The 240 was rebuilt locally. Some difficulty starting up from either cold or hot. Works OK but has a strong hesitation at acceleration from any speed but wants stall when from an idle. Timing is spot on. Electric ignition and Thruster 2 coil. Might need a rebuild on the starter but it has been performing better after the timing has been set better. Thanks!
  12. Here is the current 240 on my 66. Currently it gives me a strong hesitation as I hit the pedal from a stop or during a ride. From a stop it wants to stall, unless I tap the gas. If anybody has any idea why there's a hesitation as accelerating please let me know. Also, are there a reputable rebuild company out there?
  13. Had, what I was told to be, a reputable re-builder here in NorCal to do the 240. (Carburetor Factory) Tough to know if they are that reputable. Maybe it just needs a good mechanic. I'm picking up the 304 on ebay to rebuild as well. I'll take some pictures of where I believe the holes have been plugged when I get back to the car. Just read your other post. I like that idea.
