  1. Chiming in here late to the party, but my 1964 401 had the plastic tipped gear on the crank. Got the whole timing set in steel at probably AutoZone: http://www.1964buick.com/resto_logs/motor_rehab.htm
  2. I'd like to give thanks to 64Rivvy for calling out the brand and model of satin paint that matches our dashes. Even two years after this thread I was able to head down to Home Depot and buy some right off the shelf. In the attached pictures I've got a scrap of dash painted with the Rustoleum showing through where the courtesy light would be. The Rustoleum goes a little more toward the gray spectrum than the silver, but the gloss level looks great. I will note for the group I used Dupli-Color adhesion promoter on the first painting of the scrap and it ended up with kind of an acid etching look. I sanded it all down and just sprayed Rustoleum and it turned out fine. That's 5 coats on the scrap in the picture.
  3. And your wallet is probably at the dry cleaners right now for it
  4. If you want to replace it, reach out to James at Best Offer Counts. https://bestoffercounts.com/wpboc/. He is over in PA and specializes in these years of big cars, and usually is parting out a few. If it is just a few pinholes, usually radiator shops are the place to take them and they can fix them up. Good looking car.
  5. I just did this project on my 64 after talking about it for 10 years. The full write up lives on my website at http://www.1964buick.com/resto_logs/dual_master/1964_Wildcat_dual_master_cylinder.htm. I bought a 1967 AC Delco Booster described as Bendix and it fit directly. I then bought a kit Inline Tube sells which has lines from the booster to an included distribution block which splits the system in to two circuits. I rebent my passenger size and was in business. I did stainless steel lines throughout at the same time, so my bill for the whole 9 yards which included a booster I didn't end up using was $627.

  8. I've got one on eBay. Mocked up but never installed. http://www.ebay.com/itm/151860500679?item=151860500679&viewitem=&sspagename=ADME:L:LCA:MOTORS:1123&vxp=mtr $71 with free shipping. Lifetime warranty through A1 Cardone. Have all documentation.
  9. So, for anyone looking for a following up here is my 11 year reply. Motor mounts weren't hard. I hooked an engine hoist up to one side at a time to get clearance. The motor mounts I sourced would not allow the bolt to be tightened all the way. I had to put two washers at the front of the bolt to make the length shorter so the bolts would tighten up.
  10. Glad I stumbled on this thread. I love me some wagons.
  11. You'll get there. Good job on the brakes- I'm going to convert mine to dual resorvoir and have the parts, just need to find the time. I also went the 1967 Buick brake parts route on my Wildcat.
