  1. Yes Ed , sorry i meant an AVS2....right now The car came with an Edelbrock 1411 750 CFM that's why I asked. The car went from  Chicago

    597 ft altitude to Denver area with 6120 feet . Too rich for the area. Yes I can and have changed many carbs for this place but thought someone might

    have had experience with a different setup....I will just adjust the carb. Thanks to all.

  2. Ha, I just went through this and did this.   Gasket just for square hole carb on manifold, ( no cutout for the crossover ),  shield next, then gasket for the carb.


    I figure ( probably wrong ) if the heat will dissipate better before getting to the shield then disparate even more before the carb.





  3. When I did my doors and windows, I used the 1963 Buick Riviera Body Service Manual and in section 2 it guided

    me through how to adjust the windows and doors.  I also rebuilt the doors with all new rubber and weatherstripping.


    I found that the doors were hard to close, but they are now starting to close better. For the window adjustments,

    I had to slowly play with them to get the adjustment I thought was good. 




  4. I agree whole heartily,   around me they are chain stores and are NOT locally owned. If any of them were, I certainly would be 

    a customer.

    Why not your local auto parts store??? MANY are still being run by the Mom's & Pop's that got America to where they are.


  5. Hello. Before i take the valve lifter cover off the 401 I would like to know if there is some kind of gasket

    that goes between the lifter cover and the top of the block. Been reading my manuals and the forum but 

    can't find info on this issue.


    Thanks in advance.


  6. So, I just replaced both sides and I purchased them from   BestOfferCounts LLC. James Kehr 215-767-0845. Did the same as Chasander did NP.  Mine had only 6 pins on them.


    Seafoam65 is correct about the way he said to do it.....I used black weatherstrip adhesive for the letters on the back of the trunk and in 24 hrs it was totally stuck on.





  7. Great job RockinRiviDad. I also repaired my tabs and used JB WELD CLEARWELD two part plastic epoxy to glue my metal pieces onto the console. 

    Just installed my console and the tabs never budged. I am like a bull in a glass house so if stuff stays after I install it, I know it's fixed for a long time.
