  1. Trying to find a oil leak on my 64 300. Do the oil journals to the rocker arms come up at the front of the motor on both sides? If so, the heads are specific to right or left? Got a substantial oil leak somewhere above the starter and it's quite evasive . Doesn't seem to be coming from the intake manifold or valve cover gaskets.
  2. I had a 63 with a 401 and used e15 here in Iowa for 10 years with no problems
  3. Thanks Willie, Is that the front or rear? What is the other? I'm leaking at both ends.
  4. Does anyone know the National (or whoever) part number for front and rear 1964 300 Neoprene Main seals? My local parts guys are giving that look ????
  5. I'VE seen Mr Earl's. There is a very extensive one out there
  6. Somewhere here I've seen a checklist for selling a car or listing for sale. Does anyone remember where it is? Was it Reatta??
  7. Thanks Sean Appreciate the information
  8. Any idea where it was built? Or was there only one plant in Canada. Maybe it's on the firewall plate?
  9. Anyone familiar with Canadian Vin numbers? Looking at a 64 Skylark up Nortd. First five digits are 44337. I'm aware U.S. VIN's are 4... Buick Letter ...... Identifying factory and so on
  10. Glory be and praise to Buick. I just got a call from Keystone my bumpers are done.:cool:
  11. Hey Ted, I have a niece's wedding in Springfield that same Friday as the National. But wrong of side of family. I will give a shout to Clint. I'll try to look you up in Springfield
  12. I still like the Ray Price version best, but hey Elvis is the KING!!!!!!!!!!!
  13. Lamar, That was a awesome time with you and Bob. Please forward him my best. I have a pic of the former 1st lady in the back seat:rolleyes: in my garage. What was the name of that model?? We found her name???? She sure was purrtty Let me clarify that. The picture is of the 1st lady in the Landau. That picture is hanging in the garage next to the picture I got from GM Photo Store of the Landau:o I still have my Landau shirt and it is my favorite. Maybe it's time to wash it.
  14. Looking for someone with a inside contact at Keystone. They've had my front/rear 72 GS455 bumpers for 3 1/2 months and now they're not returning my calls for the past 2 weeks. This is a reputable company I've dealt with in the past but it's starting to worry me. Getting someone to pickup the phone is a problem. The rear bumper is a N25 which aren't easy to find. Any help appreciated. Rick
  15. Paul and Mary Ann thinking of and praying for you both. Keep the faith. Rick and Janet
  16. I've been out of the loop for a while on BCA board stuff but it's certainly a fair request to have a reply from a board member on what has transpired with this Scholarship Grant. If I voted for or against I would surely stand up and say why. Assuming Joel Gauthier (the BCA CPA) was consulted prior to a vote. Also assuming there was a roll Roll Call vote. That should be public knowledge.
  17. Hey if anyone watched Pickers last Wednesday Night. They were within 30 miles of Jewell, Iowa. Happened to know both guests I have bought parts from the Doug the 80 year old guy. Marty's family grew up right next us 8 miles away. Both Marty and his dad ruled the Hamilton County Speedway back in the day. All are for sure characters just right for reality TV. If you saw the picture of a NASCAR car flying in the air that was our own Bobby Hill who drove one year in the Busch series and several years in ARCA. Connie Clement of well known Clement Trailer liked Bobby and hooked him up a ride for several years. Last I knew Bobby was a shop foreman for Mark Martin not sure which shop he's at now.
  18. Picked up the correct National seal (#450446) this morning. Special shout out to Greg at Oreilly's in Webster City, Iowa. He worked with me. This is circle dirt track country here. So there are a gazillion small block Chebby's. Go into a parts store or machine shop with needs on a 401 nailhead or a 455 and you get........ "Oh yeah those are cool engines I had a friend who had one back in 73, but I don't know about parts for one". Thanks everyone for your input. Willie, Good to here from you.
  19. Ok, I'm diving into my 72 GS 455. It does not have a rope gasket on the crank shaft, it has a new style neoprene # ASA 382-6. Can't find that anywhere in any parts store. Apparently ASA is a Taiwan Company Does anyone know the National number or similar common suppler # for the oil seal that goes in the cover????? Thanks
  20. Greetings Forum Folks You can now count me in as a GS owner. Recently purchased a 72 GS 455 original Fire Red with Black Vinyl top. The chassis number correctly identifies the GS and 455 (non Stage 1). It is a Flint car The block casting # is 1238861 with 455 above which is correct I believe The "WF" is stamped correctly between 5 and 7 on top face of the block. So far I think I have a "correct" block. Trying to verify a "matching" engine. 1st question? directly to the right of the "WF" it is stamped "0b4". What is the 0b4? 2nd question? I removed the power steering pump. No Engine number there on front of block on driver side. I used paint remover over on the passenger side in front of the Oil pressure sender. Nothing there either. Do I need to pull timing cover off to find it on the passenger side? Thank you for any input. Also posted over in Performance See you in Springfield Rick
