    Curious about "minor" brakes & vacuum issue.
    Power brakes not doing so well. The Cam that the car came with appears to be preventing enough vacuum for brakes to function correctly.
    Experienced suggestions

    Depends on how close her deer stand is to yours

    Brewster green with 76 graphics... I know yours is not a 76, but those were the best looking IMHO : https://www.firebirdcentral.com/1976...stn-2103ua.htm

    One day, maybe next year, this one will Tour too. Had to back out this year due to college orientation same week as PT along with 3 kids needing oral surgery. 2 for wisdom teeth, the littlest for some other issues. So instead of spending $$ on tour, I’m dumping it into getting the TA into road trip condition.

    And don’t worry about this one becoming a clone. Factory tag indicates original color was Solar Gold. Might go with that or go more towards Brewster green. I’m Irish, so I am leaning that way... but definitely no clone status here

    Last year for RWD Riviera. Some 78s were a limited 75 anniversary edition. 2899 made with two tone silver and black paint scheme. My 77 was gold with tilt/telescope steering column and 8 track stereo. This one is sliver with an olds 403. 78s had fake stainless interior trim instead of the fake wood on the 77s. Very little difference otherwise. Similar to the 71-72 Chevelles. They look like a bigger version of the G body Regals. Ad is still up. If no one is interested in it I might be able to get it cheaper.

This car is a 78 which is nearly identical other than the plastic wood is plastic stainless and the roof and dash are black. They claim it has 50k miles on it. Only $1500 and about an hour from home. Says bill of sale only which I don't like. I need another car like I need a hole in the head. Just changed the oil in DD for the first time in 13 months. post id: 7480914170 If VIN is right it has a 403 Olds engine.
    that is one helluva stuck out lower lip!

    The ones that I am talking about were a different type of block freeze plug. Back in the 1970's, when I was building engines at a repair shop, we bought them at the local parts store for a problem block that we could not get the metal kind to completely seal in. They came in a variety of sizes but I haven't seen them in awhile.

    I have seen the old school rubber block freeze plug used. The kind with the nut that you push the rubber into the hole & then tighten the nut on top to make it tighten up the rubber & seal the hole. Not the most attractive but it will seal the hole up.
