322 ci Engine Question

Recommended Posts

😂Having recently purchased a 1955 Buick Model 52 Super, I am confused by the location of the engine oil filter caps. I have seen 322 ci engines with the oil filler caps on top of each side valve cover, and other 322 ci engines with a single oil filler cap on the passenger side of the valve gallery cover. It appears the valve covers and the valve gallery covers are inter changeable. Thank you in advance for your response to my post.

In prior threads it was discussed that there was an early and late 55 engine.  The early ones had the oil filler in the valley cover, similar to the 53 and 54's.  The later had the oil fillers in the valve covers, similar to the 56.

Your reply relative to the location of the oil fillers on the early and later 1955 engines answers my question. Many Thanks.
