  1. ok, I have sent out some request for Buick Riviera parts guy, Like you said, try to find a used one and have it rebuilt and then swapped I saw there is a rebuild shop Rare Parts in Stockton CA, like 2hour from San Jose or http://fcrcmachine.com/rare-parts-center-link-refurbish-service-1963-1965-buick-riviera-26781/ want $260 for one and want your core in return Also I learned today, my car is NOT a A-body so I can stop looking for those sites since it would not fit my E-body -64 Riviera. Here is a good Buick Site explaining all GM body styles ..
  2. Iinteresting discussion and reading .... so my -64 Riviera is not an A-body.... I do have my steering set behind the A-arm and not like one of the pictures seen previous in this tread which show it in front of the A-arms. Center Links – often called Drag Links – are the critical connection between the driver side and passenger side steering. The Idler Arm is one of the most commonly worn steering components. Poorly designed joints from the factory quickly loosen and cause excessive play in the steering. *1964-1967 GM “A” Body cars use one of two center link des
  3. I just came back from the repair shop and they showed me the problem, there is play in the tie rod that is attached to the CENTER LINK that is attached to the power steering pitman arm .... the opposite side IDLE arm are tight and fine so, the only way to fix it to get a new Center link with the tie rod attached to it or make a bushing to remove the play in the pitman arm / tie rod but have to removed it to see if it is fixable or have to replace it .... I guess this is the weekend job me $44 for a new one but they made to types for 1964-72 Buick A-body Steering Center Link 7/8" and 13/
  4. I understand when you mess with Airbags and Hydralic ride hight suspension your are in for something else but those cars supposed to ride like new cars as well if you do it right ...... I had more than +20 cars with air bags and variable ride height and half of them with 20 inch rims and wide tires and never had any problems like this, I had 2 Buick Riviera 63 with bags and 20 inch before and all went straight down the road at 70mph. So this one definitely have some other issues .... The transmission shop i dropped it off yesterday just called me .... they said the idle arm and bushing looks o
  5. Hi I just bought a new car online Buick Riviera 1964, it looks good 20 feet way like most cars, what the seller did not disclose was that the car does not drive straight down the road. Any bump or track in the road the car start to swivel right and left and I have to adjust with the steering wheel not to fly off the road. There is no vibration from tires or steering wheel and when put the front up on jacks I don't find any loose or worn P joint or steering components what I can feel while wiggling the wheel back and fort and up and down. Steering box feels tight and no leaks and tires have air
  6. I went out and looked today and there is no such switch on my break pedal or around there but there is a cruise control switch that have an arm following and sliding on the break pedal so I guess if the car has cruise control then there is a different setup
  7. I have not break lights on my 1964 Riviera where is the break light switch ? I tried to google it but came up empty .... Where to start looking ... inside under the dash ? or in the engine compartment ? or under the car on the frame rails ? It's my weekend project - thought I asked for some pointers before I get down on my knees .... I thought I start by check the power on the switch and that the other pool show current when I step on the break pedal .... thx

  9. Hi all, trying to find info where I can decode my body tag found in the engine compartment, especially the ACC extras ..... see pic attached ..... Is there any good online place that hold the info I am looking for thx Erik in Ca
  10. hmmm my carpet is glued to the floor in the trunk, before I pull it, anyone done this before ? I thought you have to drop the tank on a Buick 54 55 56 to reach the fuel sender which is on the top of the thank. All I can see in the trunk is a brown wire going down the floor to the tank sender ie the wire that does to the dash gas gauge I still think the float is gone or disconnect inside the tank only way to find out is to drop the tank .......
  11. Yes it is a Buick 1955 Special, and I am under the impression as previous comment that the fuel gauge is working fine and the problem is with the sender in the tank. I see previous owner has made a new wire for the ground from the sender to the frame but that did not fix it So as previous comment point out it is probably inside the tank and I need to drop the tank and check if the float is detached. If the float is gone the arm would be down all the time as of it was empty, just as the gauge is showing. So now I need to drive the car until it is dry of gas in the tank
  12. My tank meter not working ! Just filled 10 gallon and it shows nothing. Where do I start looking ? What ohm should the wire behind the gauge read ? Any one know. Any one had this problem before ? When ignition turn off - then the gas pointer diapers When ignition turn ON - the the gas pointer goes to E (empty) When I go in the trunk and disconnect the brown wire that comes from the tank sender - then the gas pointer goes quickly to F (full).
  13. Hi again .... I never heard of Fluid Film before So I did a search for it and found a youtube video test about under coating for cars or metal Flex Seal I would think would be worst ever but in came in as 2nd place I wish they had tested OSPHO as well but they did not ..... Motor oil was WORST even made the rust more
  14. Can you paint over Ospho? Before applying, use a wire brush or wire wheel to remove loose paint, rust scales, dirt, oil, and anything else accumulated on the surface. After doing this, apply a coat of Ospho and let it dry (overnight). Once the surface is dry, you can paint over it. What does Ospho do to rust? When applied to rusted surfaces, OSPHO causes iron oxide (rust) to chemically change to iron phosphate - an inert, hard substance that turns the metal b
