  1. Best to go to the buyers bank to get your money and notify your insurance that you sold the car .If DMV service is available go to them and have the buyer register .
  2. This is strange as many parts of the country it has been to wet for planting corn , but it's the tariffs fault .If we have so much oil why are we making Alcohol is what many ca not follow .
  3. Try contacting walker Manufacturing , years back they were helpful .
  4. Tranny coolers belong in front of the condenser . All GMs that I have owned with Factory coolers were in front and NOT between condenser and radiator .Some times back when a trailer package consisted of a hitch and wiring and cooler would have been extra . If your oil is red and not towards the brown you should be alright .But it never hurts to drop the pan and change the filter before pulling the camper any distance unless you know for sure at what millege it was last done..
  5. have you looked at the cable for damage ,wear or lack of lube .
  6. At that mileage the fuel filter was probably never Changed and at that time E10 was not popular . It would pay to have a mechanic run a scan to make sure . The 3800 was a good motor if taken care of .
  7. 51-1/4 inch long could be something off of a rear fender 2Dr. or truck bed . Little long for front fender .
  8. Our 49 Buick had that style for back up lights .
  9. Real smelly listing ,contract with Ebay and crated . But no Ebay contact info ????
  10. Figure out the total weight that your equipment is able to handle it . Remove everything in front of the radiator so you end up with less tilt
  11. The tranny fluid back then was darker than todays fluid .If it did not smell burnt or was dark brown it was probably not overheated . At that age from sitting someone might have added 1-2 quarts of seal swell and that is what the Black stuff is from . If you have a tractor supply store buy the store brand GM fluid and drive about 1000 miles and Change again including converter .If the pan and screen is not filled with gunk , I would avoid the universal type and look for GM only . Don't leave the tranny empty so the seals dry up . Remember Dynos do not shift .
  12. Start by getting a manual , the outer fenders are not that heavy if separated from inner .
  13. NAPA had replacement lines for my van , might give them a call . Brake lines are required to have DOUBLE FLARES when splicing in a section and doubtful a good mechanic would do that due to liability . Do it yourself and could cost you your home .
