  1. Dear all here is a photo of Oldsmobile car that I intend to buy but not sure about its details! Can anyone decode this vin in pic below for me thanks
  2. Dear carl million thanks for the tips i will as soon as I finish the car, take some photos for it best
  3. i believe the mechanic did put them in the right place! the problem is that 2 of them are not filling oil! no oil in them! mechanic believes that by tightening the rocker arms that would fill the oil in lifters! today he is intending to adjust rocker arms with the right measure that i need to know!
  4. million thanks just sent it to mechanic who does not understand english! but is specifically asking about measures of valve clearance, that is the pivotal question we cant figure out from the catalog !
  5. Hello I was told that the clearance on the valves is .015. is that correct? .15 of mm? thanks
  6. Help needed i did engine overhaul for my straight 8 original engine in my Buick Super 1949. The car is heating after adjusting the rocker arms! Need more info as the exact measure of the valve clearance. AS WELL AS ADJUSTING ROCKER ARMS.. we also noticed that 2 of the tampets are not filled with oil.. ran out of oil.. don’t know y?

  8. Thank u very much any idea where to buy steering knuckle ? The problem is it was made thinner by taking a layer of steel from it (eroded) intentionally earlier by previous owner. we got new thrust bearing yesterday and couldn’t fit them in the knuckle , the sizes we have either too narrow or too wide to fit in smoothly in the knuckle due to previous handling of the knuckle . Now mechanic is suggesting we take a small layer from inside the narrows thrust bearing to make it wider in order to fit in the knuckle ! Or to force the bearing in the knuckle by hammering it a bit to go all the way in! Any suggestion ?
  9. Is there a set that includes all the parts included which I marked them in picture ? I mean a full set that include all parts cos I just can’t define them and buy them due to lack of knowledge of their names!
  10. Need to buy this as well. Marked in photo attached . It was worn out and seems that it was made thinner by taking one layer from it!! any idea where to buy the whole set with shock absorbers and the whole thing from ? Thanks
  11. I am confused whether this coil is the original one or not ? It’s diameter is 14,5 mm Working on suspension and driving me crazy
  12. My mechanic found coils (for chevy caprice 1970s) which he believes r the same right measures. Don’t know if the present cooks are correct or not. The current ones had 9 circles (coil) on top of each other . The ones we bought today had 10 circles . The ones on photos here has 12 . Anyone knows the right measure ? To compare with the ones I got just now thanks
  13. The problem is the coils currently present are probably not original .. there were improv ions and things done to compensate the lack of original parts in here! That is y many things r confusing so originally there is spacers in my car? Where to find them ?
