  1. Hi, there, SardosAuto. Thanks for checking in....and, yes, I still have a couple of these NOS RIVIERA hood ornaments available. I'll send you a PM (the little envelope at the top of the page) with details. You should be able to open my PM to you, even though you're a new forum member. If you have any difficulty doing that, just post again here, and we'll exchange phone calls or emails. Thank you. John
  2. This vintage screw jack handle is quite the number. It is 46" long, and folds to a compact size through the use of two joints. The end that engages the jack is a standard, male 1/2" drive. This handle has two rotating grips, to make for easy rotation. In very good condition. The price is $35, plus shipping.

  7. Hello Swear57. This item has already found a new home. I'll PM you about another BUICK tire pressure gauge I have. John
  8. Google "Magnetic Angle Locator". All of the big box home improvement centers and Harbor Freight sell these. They're quite inexpensive. This is the tool I use to check and set the various driveshaft angles. John
  9. Then, from my way of thinking, the quickest, easiest, and cheapest thing to check would be the 180 degree rotation of the driveshaft. But, this time, mark the driveshaft and differential yoke with chalk BEFORE you take it apart. Do the 180 rotation and see if things are better. If they are, then permanently mark the driveshaft and differential mating position with a prick from a metal center punch on each. And, as others have stated, get to the bottom of that retaining clip not being fully seated. You'll want to pop that specific u-joint cap off, and make sure one of the needle bearings hasn't now fallen into the bottom of that cap, keeping the cap from being fully seated (and making it hard to get the retaining clip to seat completely). Finally, you want to review your BUICK shop manual and also online sources (think U-Tube) of repair information BEFORE tackling some of these projects on your Riv. Then during disassembly, mark stuff along the way, and take some notes. If you're inexperienced when it comes to working on your car, you need good info going into a project, and organization during the actual effort. That's much more efficient (and pleasurable) than having to find and correct an error you may have made when "tearing" something apart, or putting them back together. There's usually a right and a wrong way to do even the most simple of auto repair projects. Best of luck with your Riv. John
  10. Of course, you could have reinstalled the driveshaft 180 degrees off, after you put the new u-joint in. Did you mark the original driveshaft orientation with punch marks or chalk marks BEFORE you initially removed it? John
  11. This DOT Twist-Filling Grease Gun is on my shelf, waiting to get used by a new owner. Please PM me, if you're interested. Thanks. John

  14. As seems to happen quite frequently with brand new (one post) people here on the forum....this person, Creeping Elegance, never responded to me. So, just a quick update: This good condition, DOT Fitting Grease Gun is still available for purchase. John
