  1. I had carb problems for years and had to replace the valve all the time! Until last year when Illinois modified the epa law, you could apply for an exemption from testing. A letter from my insurance company confirming limited miles per year and fill out a form and you get exempt. However, now Illinois has negated any emission testing for auto older than 15 years- IF they have passed their last emissions testing. Illinois figures that cars that old are not a major percentage of the emissions population, and it cost too much to process high emissions paperwork for older cars- so they exempt them
  2. Can you tell me the name or type or where you bought this device?? Thanks
  3. I have an 85 drop top. I would like to add a key fob power lock and truck auto unit. I have examined several in the web, and are wondering if anyone has made this conversion. I am trying to add the convenience as I have on my late models instead of using the key in the lock. I just want to press a button to pop the truck or doors! Thanks! Larry ixlar8@comcast.net
  4. Okay, I found the box. Is this something I can pull and replace from a dealer? If it is not working, what are my options??? Thanks Larry
  5. I just noticed that the dinger/bell that indicates 'key in ignition' is not sounding. I have looked at the manual and found the circuit, but I cannot figure out where the relay or sound producer is located. I remember that the bell came from the general direction of the speedo cluster, but I have searched under the dash to no avail. Help??? Larry ixlar8@comcast.net
  6. It is probably the top motor or relays or the switch. I have the manual for the 82 -85 tops, so if you email me your address I can email you a copy of the pages on how to repair. You can also find the instructions of how to operate the top MANUALLY, yes raise and lower by hand in the Riviera owners manual. Larry ixlar8@gmail.com
  7. I had my cluster reworked to remove the 85MPH limit and fix the KPH/MPH switch by Casper Electronics. They do a super job and well worth the cost. Great turn around on the cluster! https://www.casperselectronics.com/Merch...;Category_Code=

  10. The Riviera 'R' does not appear on the Chinese Riviera, just the tri-shield. http://www.autoblog.com/2007/04/20/shanghai-auto-show-buick-riviera-concept-officially-unveiled/ It appears that the Buick name is more important than the Riviera. I have a friend who spend six months in Hainan Province, in the Capital city of Haikou on a contract job for IBM. He told me that Buick is considered the "RollsRoyce" or "Mercedes" of China. He was told that the early 20th century emperors used custom Buick Limo, so the Buick is the most desirable. This is why Buick is the most sold GM nameplate and why mor
  11. It appears that the Buick name is more important than the Riviera. I have a friend who spend six months in Hainan Province, in the Capital city of Haikou on a contract job for IBM. He told me that Buick is considered the "RollsRoyce" or "Mercedes" of China. He was told that the early 20th century emperors used custom Buick Limo, so the Buick is the most desirable. This is why Buick is the most sold GM nameplate and why more Buick's are sold in China than in the USA. If so, maybe that is why the Buick tri-shield is visable not the Riviera 'R'. Anyone have confirmation info on this??
