Any suggestions on the best way to change thermostat with the least amount of coolant spillage?

Any suggestions to minimize spilled coolant would be greatly appreciated

Looking for a Kirbanís chrome insert for battery hold down clamp

Anyone running this combination ? Would like to hear from you with your experience with this. The fit is tight with only maybe 1/8" clearance between the two on the passenger side .
I've installed mine yesterday and have a concern with the possibility of it hitting the intercooler body during full suspension travel.  The curve in the 34mm sway bar (which curves downward vs the stock 32mm sway bar which curves outward or towards the front of the car). During suspension compression the upward motion of the A arm will cause the bar to roll in a downward direction & I am not sure if it will contact the intercooler tank?

Would appreciate hearing from anyone who has some tips or advice.

General Buick Tech / Installing Valve Springs while heads still on engine
« on: February 24 2016, 04:03:06 PM »
Does anyone have any tips or suggestions for installing #6 Exhaust Valve Spring with the Kirban tool.

Using compressed air and not finding it too bad.
I've got em all done except for #6 Exhaust.

I did manage to get the old spring off, but did struggle with it.

Can't seem to be able to manage the installation of the new keepers & retainer / spring. Lack of working space and the fact that there is no leverage on the tool make this job a b*tch.  Wrench keeps slipping off and rocker arm not staying centred over the valve to make it impossible.

Thanks in advance.


Looking for an HR PartsNstuff control arm bushing removal tool to borrow, rent or buy?


General Buick Tech / Removing Headrests?
« on: September 14 2015, 07:01:54 AM »
Can anyone shed some light on how these things can be removed?
Not having any luck using a taped hack saw blade.



I'm posting this for a buddy who is looking for front & rear bumpers for his 1975 Buick Lesabre Custom Convertible (455 cu in V8).
I know it's not a turbo buick , but it is a Buick, so I thought I'd post here anyways.

He is located near Toronto, Canada, but we can have these shipped to a Niagara Falls, NY address.

Anyone know of where he can find these?  I understand they are quite rare?

Would appreciate any leads or help / assistance that you can provide.



As the title yone got one they'd part with?
