JMO - don't be silly - if he wants a manual, put in a shift kit and get a hot-rod-style floor shifter. Tell him it's selectable, like the paddle shifters on exotic sports cars. However, the automatic...

My experience - the Holley 2300 is a great carburetor on the street, but lousy on the trail. BTDT. The original Motorcraft works well on the trail (well known as an excellent off-road carb), and gets...

I would look it up in the factory parts book, and see if the number comes up in a PN search at RockAuto, or online (or maybe the Hayden site?)

Realize I have no personal experience with these older trucks other than occasionally driving one back in the day - perhaps someone will correct me if I err. I believe the '67 has post-mount springs...

I recall the earlier trucks are spring-over front and the later ones spring under? I'm sure it's been made to work before. Also the earlier the truck, the deeper the axle gearing will be. This truck...

Well, it's sort of an electric choke. If it's like all the other Jeep 2150s I've seen, it's a thermoelectric choke. It uses both hot air from the manifold stove and electric heating to open.

I like it from the outside. I find the Wrangler seating too uncomfortable for me. Expensive too. My KL gets 26 mpg at a steady 70, so 27 combined is impressive. The Wrangler's boxiness works against...

A 6-lug Dana 44 centered rear axle is both scarce and sought after. A drum brake Dana 44 front axle can only be '74-76; front disk brakes became standard in 1977. These Jeeps all had rear drums.

The coffin tank next to the drive shaft is the original tank. Anything else was added. I would be very skeptical of filling two tanks from the same fill hose.

If you look in the TSM, there is an...

A1-Cardone is a big reman supplier.

You need to remove the timing cover and inspect the cam gear. Year/model/equipment? It matters. At worst, I believe you can buy a matched set of gears from MSD...

Look at pictures on the internet. "Buick 350 engine." It appears there's a grommet at the back of the intake manifold. This would be consistent with other V8s. The hose from the air cleaner to the...

I'm not sure where it is on a Buick. If you don't get a response here, suggest you post on one of the Buick forums.
