    1956 Buick Flywheel, clutch, pressure plate question.

    I do believe the '56 flywheel is one year only and should be part number 1170247. I do not know what makes it one year only.

    So, you want power windows...

    Buick Special, Skylark, GS400 power windows

    I shopped around and ended up purchasing a pricer set from a reputable Chevelle/Camero/Nova restoration supplier for $699.00. They were sold to me as a good replica of the original equipment regulators.

     

    You are going to have to remove the doors and everything in them. (Give some consideration to the fact that you may wish to remove the front fenders to adjust the doors later)

    Read the instructions, they sound straight forward, but lack a lot of information unless you are familiar with working with doors and windows.

    Take your doors off.

    Disassembly:

    Roll down the window and remove the felts.

    Remove Front Window

    Remove two upper window stops and the rear window guide. Remove the window by lifting it up at the rear and sliding it out of the track.

    Vent window mountings

    Remove the vent window, three phillips screws (one hidden under the weather stripping), one bolt (near the front), and the two adjusting nuts. Loosen the window by shimmying it. You will work it up until the front comes clear of the door, the move it back a little and turn in to allow the adjusting screw to pull through the opening.(you may have to pry the outer and inner panels ...

    Winterize Your Classic Car

    If the warm weather seems far away and the thought of cruising with a set of snow chains on doesn't appeal to you, then it's time to tuck your car away for a few months.

    This is a brief guide to helping your car survive another long cold winter while you make plans to attend exciting events next summer.

    First things first. Go for one last drive.
    This serves two purposes.

    1. It's fun
    2. It allows your car to get up to operating temperature.

    Bringing your engine up to temperature is important to burn off contaminants in the oil and it also gets rid of moisture in the exhaust system. If you've waited too long and it's a bit too cool to get the engine up to temperature, use a piece of cardboard in front of the rad to help things along. Be careful not to overheat it this way.
    While you are out cruising, stop by a car wash and clean the undercarriage. Then stop and fill the tank with high grade gasoline, be sure and add the appropriate amount of fuel stabilizer before filling up the tank. This will thoroughly mix the stabilizer with the fuel. Now drive straight home and wash and scrub up the outside of the car. Clean the car as if you were entering it in a show and shine. If it's ...
