Here are some pictures of my progress so far. Every thing under the car is done along with what you see.

Ok, sorry for the confusion. The original picture is the rubber connector from the hard plastic line to the MAP sensor. It is cracked and I want to replace it somehow.
The second question, I converted to vacuum brakes. I have seen pictures of some cars that have a check valve in the larger diameter vacuum hose from the plenum to the brake booster. I am having a problem finding a check valve for a larger diameter hose. Do I even need one there? Below is a picture.

That actually goes to the passenger side fender. I will try the Autozone kit. All the parts stores I have tried do not have a check valve bigger than 1/8Ē.

General Buick Tech / Vacuum Line Question

Anyone have a suggestion on how to fix this?
Also suggestion on where to find a vacuum check valve for the larger vacuum line to the brake booster on a vacuum brake conversion?

Clearance is good. Now you have me thinking which belt to use.

General Buick Tech / 140 Amp Alternator
« on: August 30 2022, 10:37:02 AM »
Has anyone installed a 140 amp alternator from a 96 Impala 5.7 engine? I have watched a video and read that it is a direct swap. I purchased an AC Delco alternator and the two ears and clocking are good. The problem I see is the bolt for the back side of the alternator will not work for the bracket from the exhaust manifold. Also the pulley is about 3/16" in diameter smaller. Thoughts or suggestions? Should I leave well enough alone and go with another 120 amp alternator?

Thanks for the advice. I guess I will test my brothers metal skills on the valve cover bracket. Trying to keep the car looking original. Just thought if someone had aftermarket valve covers and no longer needed on. I did see that roadkill episode.

I have the two heat shields you are talking about. By chance I stumbled onto an all original 31,000 mile GN that lives 4 miles from me. That one did not have the one in the picture on it. I have two questions for you Steve. My car is missing the spark plug wire loom bracket on the passenger valve cover. Do you know anyone who might have one they would part with? Do you have any advice on how to make iPhone pictures small enough to post? I would like to show some pictures of my progress.

That is a good idea. I will try that.

I thought I took a lot of pictures while I tore it down. Turns out I missed some things I should have documented better.
