I have no choice but to replace mine. It's sitting super low due to the age of the springs.

That's awesome advice. Thanks! My biggest worry is the track side of it, seeing that I didn't intend to go there. Lol. I'm afraid of getting addicted.

Scoobum, naturally every smart TR owner wants to avoid KR. Turbo Buicks are like Superman and KR literally means KRyptonite. :rofl:  I've been around long enough to learn quite a bit from all of you. Bringing up Bison and his accolades doesn't help me much. I talk to you more than Bison, so when it's all put together and highway ready, I'm bringing to you so you can tune it.  :cheers: Wish me luck and I will keep you all posted. Unfortunately I'm not on FB, so getting in contact with Earl just became that much more difficult. Lol

Ok cool. Here is what I'm working with so far. I don't know what much of this means, but by the end of this thread I'm hoping to have a good running car. Lol


stock 109 block, bored .20 over with a deck plate. New TA grooved cam bearings, new ARP main studs, #2 and #3 Pro-Gram billet main caps, and block has been lined honed. New JE pistons, new Scat stock length forged rods, stock crank that has been magnafluxed and turned .010/.010. Also new brass freeze plugs.

Thank you all so much with the responses! I'll update you with detail on this build. If I can't get in contact with him, will my front cover work just fine?

Good morning gents, I'm in the process of putting together something fun, and I was in need of some assistance on a few parts. Specifically, I'm checking to see if Earl is still selling those front covers. In addition, since it's been a while since I've stopped through here, I'm having a fellow buick member local to me, Scott Keller, assemble the block for me.


Just for starters, I'm leaning towards the roller cam to avoid having to add zinc. I'm also going with aluminum heads as well. The details will be added to this thread here in the near future for the entire build. I miss you guys and I hope that all is well!!  :rock:

Lol, they are def money pits, but they are amazing to drive. I don't have windows 10 available to me yet. I'll find a way to resize the pics though. For some reason the TR is a perfect balance between problems and fun. Lol. It's all worth it when they're running right, and I've owned mine for quite a bit of time and it's never ran right. LMAO

As I type this, I look at the subject line again and realize it sounds like an actual holiday. Lol. Here in the Saint Louis area I'm part of the buick group/club and last Sunday turned out to be perfect. We meet once a month, and this past meeting we captured a couple of photos of the cars everyone brought. I attempted to upload a photo, but it's too large. We all met at Grafton Winery, and I can't express how beautiful the scenery was. The majority of the group showed up and we had a great time. I actually considered going to Bowling Green next weekend. We'll see though. I'm looking to buy another motor/block because I'm certain mine needs some work. If I find a way to reformat the pics, I'll be sure to add them to this thread. I hope all of you fine fellow Buick/non buick owners are doing well.  :atbeer:

Also, I'm very unfamiliar with what this pinch weld is that you all speak of. I'll ask one of the guys here to show me. Thanks again for your help. You are the man as always

I'll see if I can find some instructions on youtube or something on changing those motor mounts out
