    Mystery Fluid Leak

    The over pressure valve in the pump can get "over pressured" and leak. This is right where the vent is in the case so the fluid comes out the vent. I called this the Bison mod as that is who turned me on to it but was later corrected as Mr Dave Husek is the creator or so I was told. Either way...

    Pulling heads in car, min. needed to come off?

    After thinking on it, that trans dipstick tube is bolted to the trans to engine bolt on mine and I'm pretty sure it is like that from the factory so I'm thinking you don't need to fool with that unless someone has attached it to the head.

    Pulling heads in car, min. needed to come off?

    Put a prybar or big screw driver in the loop on that lift hoop to keep it from moving while removing and installng to hold it where you want it. The back of the head trans tube bolt can be gotten from underneath with a 3ft extension and universal joint. Stock fuel lines have a rubber section...

    No Drill Steering Wheel Button Mounts

    Looked at the website but didn't see these. Are you still selling these and the ash tray plates?

    Pulling heads in car, min. needed to come off?

    The newer studs have a hex in the top to make removal easier. Pass side looks harder with the HVAC stuff there. I'm sure bolts will be fine. I bought a felpro valley pan and vc gaskets. Used black stuff out of a tube on the ends and corners of the intake. I used some Indian Head stuff on the...

    Pulling heads in car, min. needed to come off?

    Mine was dr side so that is the one that came off. It went back on with a victor rienz gasket, and arp studs on that side. Pass is still factory seal on it at about 175k miles. I didn't pull the pan but did do a couple of short oil n filter changes.

    Clutch clearance

    Should be fine. It isn't a shifting clutch. It is either on or off so if it applies and holds it is good.

    Simple Poll on Brakes

    i have hydroboost and wouldn't second guess my decision. But there are plenty of cars with the vac setup that do great. http://www.ihadav8.com/forum/index.php?topic=4228.0 a thread on my setup.

    Looking for T type interior buckets, floor console

    I have some stuff but It isn't that nice, but it is buckets and console(depending on your level of nice, these would be driver quality at best but could be recovered). PO kept the shifter so you would need that and cable and the bracket for the trans. Location is the biggest hurdle. I'm in...

    Stock engine tries to die 2-3 times at cold start

    If you touch the lines and get your fingers black they need replaced. They are 33 yrs old and lucky they made it this far

    Stock engine tries to die 2-3 times at cold start

    When was the last time you replaced the vac lines under the hood? Probably has a leak until stuff gets warmed up.

    Mystery Fluid Leak

    That "top hat" on the dip stick tube is easily pinched. You might revisit that to make sure it isn't there. The converter is "leaking down" after the drive and the fluid goes into the pan. This is why the fluid level is checked with the engine running. That top hat needs some love for it to...

    Buick GN shifting early , torque converter locking up in 2nd and 3rd gear

    What code do you have? A servo swap isn't hard to accomplish and a VB/gov swap is probably easier than a full trans swap if it shifts decent but not where you want. Might even be able to make the VB/gov you have work with some mods.
