IHADAV8 Playground / I'm back
« on: June 17 2020, 03:55:55 PM »
Long story.  My company of almost 17 years got aquired last year by a competitor.  Prompted me to look around a little and I landed at AMD.  Finally got a salesman to give me a laptop so I didn't have to use the corporate one and restored all my passwords.

For Sale/Trade/Want To Buy / T-type decklid emblem
« on: July 17 2018, 10:05:47 AM »
Got the regal back from paint but the broke the decklid emblem.
Remember on the T-types this is the one that says 3.8 SFI TURBO but it's an all chrome version not black on the sides like the hood emblems.  Anyone have one before I pay out the nose for a NOS version.

I need the one on a T-type trunk lid.  No black on the sides.

Any decent tires in 235-60-15 out there anymore.  I see Goodrich, Pirelli and MT ET streets in that size and that's aobut it.

Coming back from a cruise this afternoon.  Went pass a slow car and lit them up at 50 a lot easier than I shoud have.

And maybe down for a few hours of back breaking labor?

I'm helping friends move their parents from St Louis to Huntsville to assisted living need a few folks to help load a trailer with their belongings this weekend.

General Buick Tech / Strange Scanmaster Readings
« on: May 04 2017, 07:02:20 PM »
I pulled the TR out of hibernation last week for a couple of cruise in's this past week.  curiously I was seeing some light KR at cruise with no load.  Intermittent 0.1 degrees.

Last night it got worse.  0-23degrees now I'm sure it's not real because 23degrees would be rattling like a can of marbles 

But also random readings on the AT, IAC,

And an intermittent MAL 25.  (That may be consistent with the AT bouncing around)

Hoping that reseating the powerlogger would help.  We shall see.

Seems like after that the next step is one of the 5V sources from the ECM. I think ATS and MAF are on the same feed.

Couple of years ago I got a gopro for use at the racetrack.  Latley I've been carrying it either on a dog harness or headband while bird hunting.

General Buick Tech / Motor oil
« on: September 28 2016, 08:37:39 PM »
So I came across this post somwhere else warning everyone to stay away from Dollar General motor oil  Which kind of inspred me to take a look.

DG SAE 10W-30 is actually SF rated with lots of zinc and should work great with Flat tappet cams\

IHADAV8 Playground / So WTF is wrong with people these days
« on: August 28 2016, 12:43:20 PM »
Went to a local cruise in last night Took a walk around to see some of the buicks and when I walk back to mine some douchebag is under the hood.  Ran off when I yelled at him. 

Here's something I did a few years ago that worked out well.  Made the pull straps useful

The problem is that the pull straps are attached with a sheet metal screw right into the upper door bar.   If you use them the sheet metal gives and the screw comes loose.

There is a solution.  Takes a little work and a nutsert kit.

Nutsert is like a pop rivet that expands in place and gives a solid threaded surface.

Drill the holes out, the hole size is whatever is recommended by the nutsert you're using.  Doni't go bigger

Pop the nutsert in the hole and lock it down.  Give it a light smack with a ball peen hammer to set the kurls and the thread a bolt into the nutsert to seat the threads firmly

Finish off with a bolt
