Very cool.
You'll want to take your time. Do the spring cleaning. When you are ready to finally crank this thing over (if it will turn over). You'll want to remove the cam sensor and prime the oil pump first. What area do you live in?

Thanks for the info Mike!

I'm in Corona. Very knowledgeable about cars in general but I have heard of these particular cars can be a breed of their own and I just want to take all precautions to insure it's done properly.

Cool.
I'm in Huntington Beach. We just had a big Turbo Buick get together two weeks ago. Had about 180 people there.:)
Start a thread and post up some pictures in the new member section when you get a chance.

I'll def post pics when I pick it up next Monday in Newport Beach. I'll have to keep an eye out for the next get together. I saw your phone # on your profile. Can I contact you for info of local Buick shops or mechanics you suggest? I really appreciate all the help.

Spring cleaning. The things you'll want to do, to make sure that everything's in working order, before you go flogging the poor thing.
These cars make a ton of power, with a small engine. Things need to be set up correctly, or you'll hurt something. Here's the link for anyone who needs it.

Thanks for the info. I didn't realize I needed 6 quarts of oil. Been running 5 and regular high mileage oil too. So, now I'm using
Castrol® Synthetic Oil 5W-30 with a AC oil filter and got rid of lifter noise too. Thanks again!!!!!

Throw that AC filter in the trash and get a WIX. Your engine will live much longer and you'll be happier.;) AC. Phram, and the old standards are junk most of the time so stick with the better ones now.
