  1. larger, 3.5" MAF from F body

    Parts for sale/wanted
    Question? Just curious, what has to be done to put a 3.5" MAF on a B-body? What size is the stock MAF? How much horsepower increase does the F-body MAF give, generally speaking? Thanks, Shimaze

    Suspension
    I did it! Well, I did it! I put in another kit and this time it did not leak! To clarify, as in make more clear, the pitman seal replacement procedure, because the FSM is very vague (as in lacking detail) in the procedure. This is what I did and it worked! Starting from the bottom (as in where...

    Suspension
    Thank You!!! Thanks Gene for the reply & the info. I am going to have to buy a FSM! You mention back up washer twice. In the kit, there is a plastic washer and a metal washer. I assume the first backup washer is the plastic one. The only other question, what direction do the seals go in? Look...

    How to replace the pitman arm seal I replaced the pitman arm seal and now it leaks like @#$%! WTF did I do wrong? I pulled the box, removed the pitman arm shaft. Replaced the seals, and then put it back in the car. Once the power steering fluid got in the box, it poured out, not leaked, but...
  5. Pinion seal replacement? Help

    Drivetrain
    This may be a stupid question: Do the wheels have to locked with the emergency brake or ramps? If you turn the pinion by the flange nut, won't the wheels just turn? Thanks, Shimaze
  6. DCNF torque converter

    Drivetrain
    Thank you very much! I am going to give it a try. When I pull the trans this summer, I will put this Blazer TQ in and see what it does. If I don't like it, I can always put the old one back in. I only paid $35 for it, so I am not gabling too much money? I will try to remember to report back my...
  7. DCNF torque converter

    Drivetrain
    I bought a torque convertor from a 2000 S10 Blazer at the local Upull & Pay for $35. It has a code on it that says "DCNF" I am not sure what that means. I did a search for DCNF, but I got no results. Will this converter work in my ' 96 Impala SS and provide the same results as the typical S10...
  8. CHEAP aluminum driveshaft for those with extended control arms

    Drivetrain
    Narrow window of opportunity? I guess there are a few different drive shafts for the Crown Vic'? From what I understand, I need to find a 1999 or 2000 with the 3.55 gears? Is there a way to tell if the donor car is a 3.55 ratio? And anything outside this narrow window of opportunity and I will...
  9. Which year S-10 torque converter?

    Drivetrain
    Torque Converter code: "DCNF" I bought a torque convertor from a 2000 S10 Blazer at the local Upull & Pray (they don't @#$% when you pay) for $35. It has a code on it that says "DCNF" I am not sure what that means. I did a search for DCNF, but I got no results. Does anyone know if this is going...

    Does it have a steering damper? Does it have a steering damper? If it does, would you please cut it off & send it to me? All I need is the bracket that attaches to the car. I already have the center link with the hole in it and I will buy the damper shock new. Please reply to let me know if...
  11. WTB: 1996 Drivers side mirror glass & steering damper bracket from a Buick Roadmaster

    Parts for sale/wanted
    Thank you very much! Goldmaster, I got the mirror in last week. But I have not yet figured how to get it in the housing. I am not sure if the mirror holding parts come out of the outer shell? I am thinking it would be best to remove the mirror adjusting apparatus out of the housing and then put...

    WTB: 1996 Drivers side mirror glass & steering damper bracket from a Buick Roadmaster Greetings, I need a drivers side mirror from an Impala or Caprice. I just need the glass & the part the glass attaches to. I don't need the whole mirror housing. Some idiot stole mine by popping the mirror...

  14. Control arm shafts - replace or re-use?

    Suspension
    I was wondering what the general idea was about replacing the control arm shafts? I finally got mine off and they are a bit rusty. I cleaned them up, but there is still some pitting on the shaft surface that the bushing goes into. Is this a big deal? Is there any suspension movement on this...
  15. Upper control arm removal = engine removal?

    Suspension
    I got the drivers side off... I got the drivers side off. I removed the two black plastic pieces that hold the brake lines in place. This allowed the brake lines to move down just enough to get the arm out. But now I am stuck on getting the passenger side out. I have everything loose and I am...
  16. Upper control arm removal = engine removal?

    Suspension
    Wow, what a nightmare! It is amazing how difficult this front suspension / steering rebuild project has become. It seemed rather simple: replace the steering parts, put in new springs & shocks (front & back) and while you are at it, go ahead and replace the control arm bushings. Wrong - this is...

    Spring time Thanks 55belairgasser, Navy Lifer, & 1996ltz for the reply! I did the smart thing and got the ½” springs from Zack at Proforged.
  18. Final closeout on all lowering springs

    Vendor Area
    Thanks Zach! Hey Zack, I got all my parts on Saturday – except for the center link. But you told me that would take a little bit longer. Thanks for putting a special kit together for me that had the Buick style center link & the solid tie rod sleeves. Can you give me an opinion description...
  19. Need new springs - stock SS PN?

    Suspension
    Does anyone know where I can get a set (F&R) of new stock SS springs? I looked all over the website and can not find the part numbers for the stock SS springs. My Impala has a 120k on it and the rear springs sag waaaay toooo low. I would consider aftermarket springs, but all of them lower the...
  20. Turn signal & ignition switch replacement?

    Electrical
    Problem fixed??? The part number for the ignition cylinder is AC Delco PN# D1456C, this is the one for the normal (non police) ignition cylinder. Sorry, but I can not find the GM PN#. I did get the car to start properly. The problem was the grounding wire from the battery to the chassis...
