  1. I don't believe aftermarket gears are noisy. It all comes down to whether the installation is proper. I have Yukon 3.73's in my car and they are silent.
  2. https://www.ebay.com/itm/332647312596?hash=item4d73532cd4%3Ag%3A4fUAAOSwrBRa89oV&fits=Year%3A1965|Model%3ASkylark|Make%3ABuick https://www.v8buick.com/index.php?threads/64-65-skylark-gran-sport-and-special-reproduction-lenses-gaskets.315372/ https://forums.aaca.org/topic/284610-64-65-skylark-gs-new-repro-parking-lenses-reverse-lenses-gaskets/
  3. Goodmark seems to make a variety of springs, https://www.summitracing.com/search/part-type/hood-springs/product-line/goodmark-hood-hinge-springs I suggest you call them, https://www.goodmarkindustries.com/csearch.aspx?CategoryID=0&ManufacturerID=0&SectionID=0&PriceRange=0&SortBy=1&PageSize=12&AndOr=AND&DisplayMode=Grid&Search=hood springs
  4. I think that is what Duane calls a cheat sheet, https://www.v8buick.com/index.php?threads/build-sheet.351338/#post-2995210
  5. Chris, is Mr. Tri-Shield Fred? He also has the aqua mist car.😀
  6. I expect that is EXACTLY what he will do. Former owner of "The Beater" https://www.v8buick.com/index.php?threads/the-beater-is-for-sale.350839/
  7. I don't think Buick ever used a 4 core radiator. I think it was 3 core for the GS400, and maybe 2 core for the GS340.
  8. The only problem with ethanol is, one, it is corrosive to rubber parts and gaskets, and two, it absorbs water. The first problem is solved by using ethanol resistant parts in your fuel system. Carburetor rebuild kits made today have ethanol resistant materials. Replace any rubber fuel line with modern hose. The second problem only becomes relevant when you store the gasoline for more than 3-4 months. The ethanol can absorb enough water over a winter to cause it to phase separate from the gasoline. Then it won't burn right and foul plugs. What I do is when winter approaches, I run all the E10 out of the car and put about 15 gallons of non ethanol 91 gasoline. There is a single source station on Long Island that sells it at 4.50/gallon. Well worth it to get me through the winter. Before that, I had to travel 2 hours up state to get non ethanol fuel. It was that or use VP vintage leaded in 5 gallon metal containers at 80.00/can. https://www.pure-gas.org/
  9. This is Ron Mooney's 1969 Buick Electra Convertible. Ron affectionately referred to his car as "Biggest Red". Ron's wife would like to sell the car to a Buick enthusiast who would appreciate this car. Ron bought this car about 15 years ago in East Williston Long Island. As far as I know, it is all or mostly original. I remember Ron taking this car to his best body guy for some minor cosmetic paint work. It is a looker. It runs and rides great. There are 114,000 miles on the original 430. Ron regularly drove this car before his passing in December of 2019. It has been garaged since then. The car is located in Pawleys Island, South Carolina. Pawleys Island is about 30 miles south of Myrtle Beach. I'll post an e mail for Josephine Mooney in case anyone would like to contact her to see the car. Her e mail is jozeymoze@gmail.com. Asking price is 18,000.00 Any questions can be posted here. I asked Josephine to look for any paperwork Ron may have had for the car. This is a nice car as you will see in the pictures.

  11. The rear height is adjusted by the Automatic level control. The system consists of a level sensor,air compressor, and rear air shocks. The level sensor can be adjusted. According to my manual, you must measure foward from the rear wheel centerline exactly 23 1/8" to the underbody point. Measure between the underbody point and the ground. Measurement should be between 8 3/8 and 9 3/16"
