  1. Had same experience as SEAFOAM65 when i changed mine. Very very tight
  2. My guess would be a non fused circuit that is shorting or overloading the system
  3. ^^^^^^efffing hilarious! Thanks for the laugh Bernie!
  4. Very well done. You would have made a fortune selling these cars! Thanks
  5. Turbinator that photo i posted of a red 64 with US WHEELS on is not mine. It was on OFFERUP for sale. I posted a picture of my car with the newly installed BUICK RALLYS widend 1” on the POST PICTURES OF YOUR RIVIERA thread. My youngest and favorite son is in the photo also.
  6. Man Turbinator sure am sorry to hear that! I always thought US RADIATOR was top notch. 2 leaks within 4 years is unacceptable. I still have the original radiator with original core in my 65. When i bought the car in 2004 the radiator had a leak. Had the core rodded out and leak repaired. Still holding up.I think recoring your original is the way to go. Good luck
  7. My daily driver got new shoes. These rally 802’s were widend 1”. Very happy with the outcome. Feel much safer being that my original 6” hubcap type rims were badly worn at the mounting holes. Scary when doing slight curves on frwy.
  8. If it turns out your alternator is the problem, and you care about keeping the original parts your car rolled off the factory line with,get your original one rebuilt. Maybe mark it somehow to make sure you get the same one back.
  9. Ed i cant comment on the specific uses for those bolts but i have read on various car forums that it is best to install new head bolt when reassembling a rebuilt/ overhauled motor. If i recall correctly the reasoning is that they are weaken due to initial stretching during the initial torque process as well as the many heat cycles they have endured through out the years
  10. Tom, I'm sure everything you stated about the switch pitch converter is correct. Could you please explain how high stall at 2/3 throttle adds to performance? In my mind i would think low stall would add to performance at 2/3 throttle but im sure my thinking is flawed because the factory didn't build them for 2/3 throttle low stall. Thanks for the schooling!
  11. 1964 impala ss was also a great choice. Very popular in L A lowriding culture. I had a 1963 that i loved. My ex wife ruined it.😞
  12. Not everyone that calls themselves “ electrician” has the proper training, hell i went through the ibew apprenticeship, 4 years, with guys who cheated their way through, could never do the technical side of the trade. They were the ones digging the ditches and all the other grunt work involved in electrical construction.
