Maybe I'll have it driving this week. Doubtful. It's good to get back to the roots. Would've been a shame to let this car go by the wayside and instead dedicate time and money I don't have to some clapped out box bodies that need more than a miracle. Now the Buick is broken, as usual, so I'm back to 2 running projects.

Got a Dorman stud kit at Advance Auto that wasn't in the isle, but instead in the back shelving with dust on it. #03133 I believe it was and can be cross referenced with the GM #10220453 Jim gave me. I threaded the small ends into the manifold flanges and they work just fine. I just have to remove the one broken factory stud still.

Been driving for about a week and a half. All it needed was a new coolant temp sensor on WP (kept getting a code) and trans fluid (from the shift shaft seal leaking. But I fixed that). I also bought a new wheel for the drivers front to replace the severely bent one from last year. Was $10 more than having it reconditioned with no guarantees. $20 mount and balance my old (new) tire. Can't beat that.

I also installed that fuel gauge calibration device. Took about 15 minutes to instal, full tank of gas, dial it back, and boom. Accurate gauge again. At least on the high side of the gauge.

A friend from ISSF in Michigan located a mint rear blue non limited Roadmaster sedan seat for me for $46. Waiting to have it shipped.

New battery and you can see the Innovative Wiring headlight harness and battery cable bolted up.

Took the car 2 weeks to crap out on me. Always something with these cars.

ECT connector was bad, determined by a wiggle test if the harness and turned the fans on and set a P0118. Was showing -40*. Spliced and soldered a new one in and no further issues.

Fresh AC Delco plugs and wires. Took the old over gapped 41-943s came out in favor of good ol' R44LTSs. What a difference!

I do, unfortunately, have what appears to be trans slippage around 38-43 MPH. Idk exactly what it is yet, but it only happens in that frame of speed. It'll act funny, like chug up and down in RPM like it's up shifting and downshifting quickly or the RPMs will notably increase without any resistance/additional forward motion. You know, like slipping. I added some stop slip fluid but have driven about 100 miles and no change Sad

I'm guessing it's a TCC issue, after doing some research. The first time I felt it happening was after hitting a pothole real hard. I'll be testing the brake switch and all that good stuff here soon

After 4 years, I finally took apart one of my spare LAB Roadmaster seats and swapped in the correct drivers side recline lever/mechanism.

I used 2 40% passenger seats so I could use the center console shifter, but having the recline lever jammed on the inside against console, proved troublesome.

Who knew how many pieces you have to remove to get the mechanism out. 2 big spring mechanisms held in by a total of 4 pins and locking washer type things, the lever, the lever rod, lock pin, 4 springs, 2 lockers like on a carb throttle cable, and I think that's it.



I installed the lighted coat hooks from the Roadmaster, and soon the auto dim mirror with map lights. I have the harness almost ready to go, assuming it IS plug n play.

Having to drop the pillar trim, take out the spotlights, drop the headliner, etc just to put this harness in just might have me putting in my spare headliner and blazer console.

Hi Brian

I haven't done it, but "Buickestate" over on the wagon forum has. I'm pretty sure it's fairly easy. I'm sure he'd be glad to help you out.
