  1. You can probably get new rollers.......however when you get the part out to replace the rollers, you can probably slowly work them and add lube, and get the originals working faster than you can replace them.... the only reason to replace is if they are cracked, broken or have flat spot worn on them
  2. Unless I am way off..... Buicks had torque tube drive system and did not use this type of U joint.
  3. I use fishing line to hold the brushes in the holder so the motor armature can be installed. Maybe not in the same way ......... I will post a picture when I get home. I also made a sheet metal tool that holds the brushes in place but the fishing line works better for me and is faster.
  4. My post on Tuesday is INCORRECT...... I corrected/changed the info in that post.... please reread the Tuesday post. I am not home where I can get into my reference material and post a sketch of my wiring idea
  5. With the insulation in the blower fan..... you need to check the input side of the evaporator... it may be covered with crud also affecting your air flow. Not at home so I cannot attach pictures showing access to evaporator.
  6. Looks like you are over thinking the schematic Using the GM antenna relay, a single ON/OFF switch should work. Run a hot at all time wire with fuse to position "4" of the relay. That will lower the antenna when no power is going to terminal "6" From the switch run a wire to position "6" of the relay...that picks the relay which reverses the polarity and the antenna will go UP.... If you are using a Delco Slimline antenna, the motor will automatically stop when the mast is fully extended and open the connection...no current is drawn. When you turn the switch OFF the relay i
  7. 1960 and '70 power antenna in GM cars should look similar to this.... metal motor housing about the size of a soup can. Around 1980 GM started using Delco Slimline power antenna that have a plastic housing and have 3 wires... there will be a relay in the wiring somewhere, it might be under the dash, on the firewall or on rear mount cars it is on the mast. I am also including the wiring diagram for the 3 wire system with the relay. There was also an odd-ball antenna (Delco) used on some GM cars between 1977 - 79 (last picture) it has a cast gear
  8. Below is the schematic for 1990 fans. The ECM get input from the temp sensor and controls the fans. You might have a bad relay.
  9. What year and month was the Hot Rod article....... I have a stack of old Hot Rod Magazines.
  10. Here is an idea of what you might need......... GM used these in lots of transmissions, probably interchangeable. Color coded for the different number of teeth. Obviously the one on the far right is for a different transmission.
  11. For any new Reatta owners reading this post.... there were 3 different headlight switches used during the 4 years of production. 1988-89 Same switch and it was also used on the same year Riviera that did not have the twilight-sentinel. 1990 is a one year only switch..... it is the only one with the fog light switch at the bottom 1991 is similar to 1990 but the fog light sw was moved to the front of the center console and in it place twilight-sentinel was added. Riviera 1990 - 1993 used the same headlight switch if the Riviera had the extra cost twilight-sentinel.
  12. I have seen cars that have been converted to the one piece. Don't know details....should be pretty easy
  13. If you do not read any of the other Buick forums, then you may not be aware of a couple of things.... The dual Charlotte/Cleveland meets this year have been canceled. Here is an option...... I would love to tell you I plan on going but that all depends on my wifes health. If I can, then I will be there with the 91 coupe.... Auburn is a good choice if you have never been there. It is not a very big town and you might need to stay in Ft Wayne. The ACD museum is a must see for any car person and behind the ACD museum in the old Cord factory is the National Truck
  14. I have been selling covers for 39 years. In the beginning I knew nothing more than I needed a cover for a new Toronado we purchased. In 39 years I have hear good and bad stories. In that time I have only been involved in one case where the owner blamed the car cover for damage and Covercraft worked to satisfy that customer, even after it was determined the covered car was parked outside at a show near the restaurant kitchen and the kitchen exhaust vent was near the car. Anyone with material and a sewing machine can make something to cover a vehicle.......it all depen
