  • Just a thought, if you hooked a gas line to that gas outlet you might have been able to let it drain through the gas line, It would have siphoned out most of the gas.

  • Gorgeous car, and a crew cab at that. The Quadrajet is a fantastic carb and efficient too. It gives only the fuel required as metered by the vacuum provided. I like that it it a tub which holds the gas in a bowl that have a gasket to leak through, It also has the accelerator pump inside that bowl. The gas can't escape because it has the gasket above the fuel level. On the Holley the bowl gaskets have to hold the fuel back. When their bowl gaskets leak, which they're prone to do, it spills gas onto the manifold as does the accelerator pump, which is underneath, and this could cause a nasty fire disaster. Q-Junk's are great carbs and easy to understand if a guy can read a book on them. I don't know. .

  • Decades ago i had a '67 Buick LeSabre convertible. It had a 340 CID V-8, Carter AFB Carb and the Super Turbine 400 transmission (merely a Buick version of the TurboHydro 400). It was a great car! I wish I still had it... especially after seeing this video. LOL Sadly, I was a 20-something when I got it; could rarely rub 2 $20 bills together back then, so I drove it year round in Upstate NY winters. It was a beast of a car in the snow with 4 studded snow tires on it, but it saddens me to this day how much it had rotted out before I ended up giving it away to a relative.

  • Working on the ground or with the drip/tool tray it's much easier to lash a piece of 1×6 or fence board to the pan of a floor jack. Raise until it contacts the tank and give small resistance. Then you can unbolt and remove the straps without the tank moving. Lowering the jack gives easy controlled drop on the tank. Really helpful for tanks you cannot reach the top to unhook in-tank pumps before lowering.

  • Seeing that car beings back a lot of memories. Daddy bought a new 69 Buick Lesabre 4 door hardtop and I got to drive it out of the showroom. Was a thrill for a teenage boy to get to drive Daddy's new car before he did. I drove it to my aunt's house in Mississippi I put all but about 50 miles of the first 600 miles on it. I put must of the first 1200 miles on it. It was a beautiful car bourbon red with white top. Later on I was driving it taking grandma home from church on a Sunday when a woman broadsided us on the passenger side and the insurance company told the body shop to fix the car. When they got in to it they found more damage than they could see and the insurance company end up having to pay almost 3700 dollars to fix a 4000 dollars car. The body shop had written in the estimate plus any hidden damage. So even though the actual damage would have totaled the car they had to pay for it. I think the actual damage was over a thousand more than the original estimate. Daddy gave 1100 dollars and a 65 Buick Lesabre for it. It would be nice To buy a new car for less than 5000 dollars today. The first new car I bought was a 72 Rally Nova around 3600 dollars the last one I bought was over 23000 dollars for a 2004 Impala still got it. Wish I still had the Nova. My wife bought a used Cadillac that she drive now, but I don't see anymore new cars around here unless someone buys it for us. Keep up the good work on them old cars. God bless. Dan

BTW, somehow, I am finding new phrases on You Tube and this channel is loaded with them that I adopted. Two of my favorites are "But I'll do the right thing....." and "I'll pretend I didn't see that". It's working well for me.
