  2. Here is More Vintage W-body Photos that I been meaning to get myself to share
  3. I need a professional opinion and I thought what better to ask the w body community since I own one too. I have an 2.8 Buick Regal engine. I am looking for a good oil pump that will last me a long time like the original 30 year old one did. What pumps are good out there? I was about to contact GM but I don't know if they would be able to tell me since all the older guys are properly retired now. I would appreciate your help. I don't want to buy a part that won't last me long. I was lucky for this part to last 30 years because they don't make good quality parts like this anymore, espsecially when you are dealing with a internal component like this.
  4. Yeah that’s what I am going to do. I seen in videos just remove the push rods, make sure they are all correct firing order as removed and label them. Than just lay and swing the rockers without removing them if you can. I just bought a torque wrench too. Factory info says torque rocker arms bolts to 18ft pounds on 2.8 and 3.1. Than you are good to go to put in
  5. The factory information for my vehicle said I would have to only rotate the engine if I reconditioned or changed the valve lifters. I am not going to do that. I am just going to replace the gasket than torque them down to specs. I like this engine is self adjusting because it’s not like the older Chevys that you had to adjust when running,
  6. What do you mean rotate the engine and torque down the bottom of the lobes at 0 lift.
  7. Yes. I was told I might have a intake leak because every time I start my engine at cold starts it feels like it’s gonna shut off on me. This only happens at 60 to higher degrees of climate weather.
  8. I am thinking about replacing the intake manifold gaskets on my 2.8 V6 Multi Port Injection In my 89 Regal. I was just wondering, If I remove the rocker arms and push rods, when I put them all back in the corrrect holes seating in the hydraulic lifters will I need to adjust the rocker arms or just torque them to specs? Service Information said to torque them down. But didn’t mention anything about having to adjust the rockers to a specific position. If the rocker arms only need to be torqued seating on the rods will I not face anything like engine ticking or engine knock after wards? The engine has currently 56,000 miles but it’s due for intake manifold replacements. I don’t want to have to replace my engine because I didn’t put the push rods or valve in correctly. I wanna do it correct so I don’t have to take it apart again and adjust them. I know if I put all the rods back in the correct order they came out it should be ok right?
  9. What causes rear carpets to get soaked?
  10. How come when you attach photos on here sometimes they are large and small? How can I make the photo be all the same length? I used a software to resize the photos to make them all the same length but somehow on here it doesn’t stay the same length.
  11. I thought on the 2.8 the oil pressure switch is near of the oil filter housing? There is a sensor there to when. I looked.
