    Land Rover (Buick) engine parts

    I am working on 2000 Land Rover with a 240 CI aluminum engine. Is that a Buick motor that has been enlarged from 215 CI? Does rocker arm parts from a 215 interchange with the 240 such as plugs in the ends of the rocker arm shaft? Land Rover parts are hard to find and expensive. Buick parts...

    Fuel neck height

The tank came from a Buick Special and the neck was always short and I had trouble filling it in California.

    Steering shaft horn repair

    I know this forum caters to the "leave it like it came from the factory" crowd and I left my '52 Buick stock for 33 years but it just can not keep up with traffic so I am installing a 425 nailhead in it. I decided to go with rack and pinion steering and that required me to modify my steering...

    Generator bracket

    I am trying to run my new rebuilt 425 engine on an engine stand. To get the water pump to work I thought I could use some 401 generator mounts from a 1959 that I have, and mount a generator then I could adjust a belt to turn the water pump. I have the Master Parts book but can not find a...

    Motor mount frame support

    I am putting a 425 nailhead in my 52 Buick. I bought some motor mounts that fit 425's. I can not picture in my mind what the frame mount looks like to build some. Does anyone have a picture of one?

    Now I have a parts car

    I met a man at a car show who I had not seen in 15 years. He is around 80 years old and said he was cleaning up his yard. He told me I was the only man he knew that had a big body 52 Buick. He said he would make me a good deal on his two 1952 parts cars, $400 for both. I had never saw them...
