    wanted rear bumper under parts for my 84 LeSabre

    Are the LeSabre bumper fillers anything like the 84 Regal? If they are similar , with some tweaking, you could use the ones for sale on another site. They are new and fit the Regal almost perfect.

    Rebuild the 340 or replace

    No pressure from oil pump

    Put a oil pressure gauge on the car and had a heart attack. The new gauge shows around 4 lbs of pressure at idle and I can't get it higher than 15 when it warms up. When I first start the engine it's right at 20 and drops as it warms. From what I can see the oil pump should be easy to work...

    83 Q-jet 4bbl t

    I was reading in another forum and it came up about converting a q-jet to e85. Thought I would ask carmantx about this since it was him they were talking about. Can a Q-jet off a 1983 T Regal be converted to use e85? I have one off a 79 and 83. What is the difference in the two besides the...
