Nice choice, hope you find them.

What do you mean if it makes through break in. Of course it will make it through the break in process, why so pessimistic.?
they're out there, they just need to be cheaper

I'm cautiously optimistic about the break in, ha,.

How long do you estimate before we get a chance to hear it with the new/used Exhaust.

I can't wait and I'm sure you can't either.

But, how about a guess for us blokes.

I'm compiling the checklist of items that I need now. Last night was spent torquing things down, so not much progress to report.
I did however make the drive to pick up the exhaust tonight, and I intend to rebuild the dizzy while I watch some prime time tv.

I'm taking next week off to get her wrapped up before the weather completely goes south on me.

thanks for the interest man, and for keeping me on track.

To me, that means watch some tube and get a good buzz going. I'm not sure of your definition.?

Yep,,,, that is the heat tube that goes to the carb heat choke nipple..... there is supposed to be a smaller line that fits inside of the one in the manifold and it comes out and up over the rocker arm cover on the right side and then attaches to the the nipple on the choke assembly.....

What it does is to pull warm air up and thru the choke spring assembly to make it kick off quicker....during cold weather.....

Yep,,, go with the Buick reccomended oil,,,, except,,, be sure you put zddp in each and every time you change oil and filter,,, and speaking of filters ,,, dont use fram filters ,,,, they dont do good with Buick engines for some reason.....several guys on the v8Buick board have lost bearings, using fram filters....

I spent the first couple days this week replacing the oil pan on my friend's vette. you thought our SC belts were bad?

got most of her hooked up today. Tomorrow I need to wire it, put fluids in, prime oil pump, install dizee and fire it up.
