  1. Hey guys I'm going to be pulling the nailhead on my 55 special. I was wondering what the easiest place to place the chains. The intake is still on the engine and I am looking to leave it complete can I use some exhaust manifold bolts?? My trans is already disconnected so I am just going to be lifting the weight of the motor.
  2. I'm trying to get a '55 Roadmaster started after it has sat for 30 years outside my uncle's garage. Couldn't get a spark even with a lot of new electrical components. So I took the distributor out and cleaned it and put new electrical leads inside. Now I need to get the distributor back in. I read in another thread that I might have to turn the oil pump with a screwdriver to get it lined up correctly. How exactly do I do that? Jack the car up and look for a screw somewhere on the oil pump from below? Also, can I use a power drill on that same screw to make sure I'll get oil pressure if
  3. I have a '55 322 nailhead that is purring beautifully. Problem is that it's been sitting for a few years before I acquired it recently. I've changed the oil with a bottle of Marvel Mystery Oil and had it running off and on for quite a bit. It has good oil flow, lifters and rods doing their job, etc. On startup no heavy blue smoke out the tailpipes on idle, little bit when hitting the throttle. However, once it warms up that all changes to heavy blue and I start seeing a bit of blue smoke coming out of the valve cover vents as well. Before I start the tear down, do you think it sounds more like

  5. Has anyone used any of these headers for their 425 nailhead? Was their any clearance issues in your 1964 Buick Riviera? I wanted to know before I make an investment and what I would need to modify if any. http://www.sandersonheaders.com/Sanderson-BNH2-Shorty-Header-Set-for-Buick-Nailhead-V8-in-64-Up-Riviera.html http://www.taperformance.com/PDF/TAPerformance_Catalog.pdf
  6. <!--[if gte mso 9]><xml> <o:OfficeDocumentSettings> <o:AllowPNG/> </o:OfficeDocumentSettings> </xml><![endif]--> I'm in Los Angeles and my 61 Buick with a 364 Nailhead is at my friend’s house in Van Nuys. The car was running fine until it was backfiring through the carb. It had 4 bad lobes on the camshaft and was still running. I have changed my camshaft, cam bearings, timing gears, chain, lifters, rods, and couldn't get my car started. I did not degree the cam when I put it in. I was told by Elgin and the guy I bought it from that I should not
  7. Hi Gents, just put some cash down on my first real Buick, a 1956 Buick Special 2 dr post. Real nice solid car, hailing from Manitoba Canada.

  10. 1958 Buick Estate Wagon: The motor is back and most everything is going together very nicely. Except the throttle linkages. In the manual it show a "bit" that connects the equalizer shaft going down to the lower lever that connects to the gas pedal. I appear to be missing this piece. Does it bolt to something? Does anyone have any pictures of what the whole hook up looks like? Does anyone have an extra "whatever I'm missing" part? Willing to buy it. I'm also missing the downdraft tube from the engine (was never there). Look forward to any help on this one. Cheers Michael.
  11. 1964 Buick Wildcat 401 Nailhead. The frame has already been restored, and some sanding work has been done. The interior is original. Runs good, but pings when floored, so it will need a tune up. I can provide pictures. Asking $13,000 OBO. This car will easily be worth $30,000 when the restoration is complete.

  13. I have a Buick Riviera up for sale or trade. It was built from a 1964 & a 1965 Rivera. The chassis only has 68,500 original miles, The motor has 4,000 since it was rebuilt.

  16. Hello, Wanted to know if anyone has a harmonic balancer for sale for a 64 Buick Riviera with a 425 Nailhead engine? Or if you know junkyards or other contacts to locate one would help. thanks!
  17. once again, I need to call on you for help with my Buick. I bought a new water pump. There is only a single option available for the 401 engine. When I got it home, I checked for fit (I thought) by looking at the bolt holes. Yup, everything lines up, and when I laid it on top of the timing case cover on a workbench, it looked fine. So.......I went ahead and turned in the core. This is not my first rodeo, so I should have known not to turn in the core until the new part was installed. But when I went to install it today, I could see from the top down view, that the pump did not mate correctly
  18. I'm working on a 65 riviera that sat for 10 years. I got it started and the water pump started leaking. No big surprise there. But while I was changing the water pump I got the bright idea to tighten the bolts around the timing cover. they looked wet. One bolt snapped off with hardly any pressure. It looked more corroded than I would have expected. So, I created a lot of extra work for myself taking the timing cover off to extract the broken bolt. When I took out one timing cover bolt near the fuel pump, much to my surprise, antifreeze came pouring out. I felt that from the corosion I saw on t
  19. Hello all, I have a very "dilapidated" '55 Buick Century with a Nailhead and was considering imstalling it in a '57 Buick. Is this a reasonable easy job or are the '55s and '57 too different for this fit? Thanks in advance. Ralph M Bohm
