    Test Listing...

    It's funny you picked that bird. I shot a hog the other day and dragged it out to the back pasture. In the next couple of days I had about a hundred of those varmints back there feasting on pork. What's funny is, I'm full up on'm! Oh well, I thought it funny.

    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...

    New Rubber

    Need some help finding someplace to get new rubber for the doors on my Regal. I have had a real bad experience with a company and am looking for someplace else to get the side windows and doors sealed right. Is there a company some of you have had good luck with? I don't want to try someplace...

    Best Radiator

    Need a new radiator but don't know what would be best. I've found all aluminum and aluminum with plastic tanks. The plastic tank ones are less expensive but will they cool as good as the all aluminum? My engine is a small ci (231) but I need to keep it as cool as possible. I have a 160...

    Rear wheels and tires

    Here is a question for all you 79 Buick Regal owners out there. I want to put a wide tire on the rear of my car. Anyone know how wide (tire) I can go and what rim I should get? I would like to keep it 14 inch like the original but may have the height in the wheel well for a 15. The original...

    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...

    Runs Really Ruff in Drive

    Replaced all vacuum hoses, plugs and wires, fixed all electrical and engine runs really good. Real smooth until I put it in drive. The engine starts to run like its running on 4 cylinders. I have the car on jack stands and haven't cleaned the gas tank yet. The gas is supplied from a 5 gal...

    I had the engine running today and took the negative battery cable off and the car died. Am I to assume the alternator is no good? I have no gauges or warning lights yet so (fuses probably) no red light to observe.

    Thermostat or Water Pump?

    Got the engine running today and it heated up real fast. The heater hoses were real hot but cold water in the radiator. Ye wreckn' the thermo is frozen? Please don't say water pump. I could be though. I replaced some heater hoses and lost the coolant out of them. Filled the radiator...

    Electric Choke

    Anyone know where, or what, the wire goes to on the M4MC Rochester carb electric choke. It must go to one of the wires in the engine harness where the ESC controller hooks in. There should be two I would think. One for the heat gauge and the other for the choke. What color would these two be?

    79 231 turbo air pump

    I had to take the air pump off the engine to do some work around the distributor. The pump blocks up that whole area of the engine. Is there any good reason I need to put that pump back on? It seems like all it does is pump air into the left head manifold to put air in the exhaust. Plug that...

    Thank you bob k. mando

    I have been trying to remember where I had seen an article on the old 231 turbo that the author had modified. Well you can't believe how surprised I was when I clicked on one of the forums you mentioned and there it was. I thank you sir for the Before Black site. It was driving me crazy trying...

    350 - Buick or Chevy?

    My Buick 1979 Chassis Service Manual shows the 350 ci engine with the distributor in the rear. I am told that is because it's a Chevy engine. Is that true? My manual also says the only difference between the 305 and the 350 is the bore. Same block means same motor mounts too, right? I'm...
