PostSubject: 1991 Olds Custom Cruiser   Sat Aug 13, 2011 8:50 pm

I have decided to sell my 91 Olds CC. 113k, L03, Dark maple with red cloth interior, almost no rust from a CT car! Asking $900 to BADASS members.
I have done a fair amount of work to the car since I got it in February of this year. All of the following has been within the last 2k miles.

new brake pads and shoes all around, new rear wheel cylinders, repacked front bearings, turned rotors and flushed system. PO replaced master cylinder not too long ago.
New Delco fuel pump
Rebuilt steering system, replaced everything but the box. That includes the U/L ball joints, tie rod ends, adjusters, center link and idler. Its the best steering B-body I have ever owned now.
Reman distributor
cap rotor, delco plugs an wires
Intake manifold gaskets to address an oil leak
Upper/lower rad hoses
Oil pressure sender
PO replaced the WP and starter right before I bought the car.

Cloth interior is in excellent condition, very clean. That was one of the reasons why I bought this car. Has tint all around, not sure of the %.
New pioneer head unit with front USB port, sony speakers all around.
I added a keyless entry system and added perimeter illumination.
Added 4 not fleetwood "tug boat" horns and cornering lights.
Paint is faded and can use some help. I repainted the really bad stuff so the car doesn't look terrible.
The only rust this car had was in the rear quarters caused by a roof rack leak. I fixed the hole in the PS, can't tell it was ever there. Underbody is amazing.

Now the problem with the car as to why I'm not asking a whole for it: The engine runs good, but the torque converter in the tranny is acting up. Anytime it locks the converter, you get a non stop shuddering. I tried replacing the TCC solenoid and cleaned the valve body, but that did nothing for it. Pressures are good, its either the TCC itself or an O-ring on the input shaft. Either way, I would have to pull the tranny to fix it and really don't have the time or interest to do it. I have the itch to get a fleetwood and need a parking spot first. For any of you guys, $900 OBO.

With all that said, if your up to the work to fix the TCC issue, this is a great car. As it is I took it to and from wagonfest, so you can drive this one home. I disconnected the TCC wire from the PCM so it doesn't try to engage it anymore.

I'll try to get some more pics once the rain passes, but for now here it is at our past wagon fest.


And when I first got it home

If it had been an LT1 it would be staying Smile
Its hard going from several LT1 cars to a 305, especially when you have a lead foot!

Not too sure about that Justin, sending unit and pump are LT1 specific. Not sure about tank or lines.

When I bought my fuel pump and sending unit last winter the part numbers were for 91-96 wagons.

Either way, thats neither here no there. We've hijacked poor Dave's thread here. Laughing

I never said it just dropped in. But its not stupid hard either from what i've seen. Hell, even Doug's LS swap was pretty straightforward. Yes, I do realize SOME mods had to be done there....

Thanks Bill Smile

My biggest concern with an LT1 swap would be the wiring, seems like you would have to do a ton of work to get the LT1 wiring to work with the TBI stuff in the dash. I'm good with wiring, but I don't know about that much wiring. My original plans for the car was to drop a 350 drive train into it that a neighbor was going to give me out of a rust bucket roadmaster he has. He has since vanished and I haven't been able to get a hold of him in months, so here we all are.

I took some pics during the few minutes it stopped raining.

I know a guy that could put a LT1 in this car. He's done a similar sawp before. It would need a new fuel pump.

The dash would require a little research.

Noticed something with the trans the last few days. When on the highway and say you really punch it to pass someone, it feels like the tranny downshifts and stays there until you let off it. On local roads under heavy to full throttle you have to back off the gas a bit to shift. Same goes for gunning it locally, feels like a down shift and no acceleration happens, just engine revving. I tried adjusting the TV cable, made no difference. I don't know much about transmissions, so I'm not sure if its something I am adjusting wrong or something worse. Just bear that in mind.

I took a bunch of pics tonight and will upload them tonight.

Here comes a literal ton of pics
You can see the DS door panel is broken right above the pocket and has a fender washer holding it in, and the arm rest pad is loose as well. The wood on the dash is loose and separating, the end of the map pocket is torn.
The roof rack still leaks a bit, not as bad as the floods it use to have before. The rust in th DS well really isnt muck more than surface with some flaking. The spare well was rotted through, I cut that out and fiberglassed it. The 3rd seat well is wet, after our last rain, so leaks still exist.

Talk about low balling Cool

While I won't let it go for 800 pesos, I am open to offers. Insurance is due soon and not renewing this for another 6 monts would be sweet!

Sorry Justin, some was able to beat your pile of pesos offer. The car is gone. Took a loss but I'm fine with that, anything to get out of the money pit that it was turning into. Right before the buyer came to look at it, it started surging and idling like total crap.
