The Buick Riviera with supercharger should put out 240hp
yes, same bolt pattern. Chances are the 455 buick had a turbo hydromnatic 400 transmission, hopefully that is what your 350 had. If not, crossmember, driveshaft and linkage will all have to be modified or changed.
A 455 is probably the easiest to find cheapest . I bet cars inc have motor mounts for the swap Do not put a Chevy 350 in there or I will never ever ever speak to you again . You SHOULD put a 430 C.I. 7.0L Buick motor in there , that's whats meant to be there , 360 bhp & 475 ft lbs of torque.
I have a 1995 Riviera and the air filter is located on the drivers side underneath hood you will find a large coiled hose and you just remove the clamp and it is fairly easy to to put on.
Yes you can...the 400 is the same engine as the 455...all you need are 455 frame mounts and motor mounts if you car had a small block V8 (340)...if it had a 400, a 455 bolts in perfectly since it is the same as a 455 externally!!! Year One, Inc. and TA Performance has whatever parts you may need.
Because it is front wheel drive u really can't do anything but put another one that u took out of there or u can put a 231 in there
Just put the cam bolt back in and tighten it down, it will go back in easy
If you have the MONEY and the KNOW HOW, You can put whatever you want in there.But as far as it just hooking right up to everything and having no problems. NO.
take it to a local garage its a pain if you dont have the special fork that puts it on you can by it from any automotive store but you have to know the specefic gauge.
You have to know the value of the resistor in the key. Then put the correct cuts on the correct blank. There are 15 different choices.
My 98 riviera was doing the same I put some stp complete fuel system cleaner and it stopped happening might be worth a try it was only $9
Unscrew it and remove it then put on the new one. If you can't get to the ends you may have to renove the p/s fron the engine
I put a 455 in a regal.. and it was a snap. get the right mounts, i used factory steel from a 73 centurion 455. then used A body headers ,u half to drill new in the frame ... noithing will line up so dont bother trying.if all goes well for you, the reward is cant be be beat
The 1987 Trans Am didn't have a 455
get someone that knows what they are doing, to replace it the 2 long front engine mount bolts need to be removed to replace serpentine belt
In 1968-69 there were 2 different 455 engines. The base 455 put out 375 h.p and the higher compression ratio engine put out 400 h.p.
how to install a distributor
You can take transmission out of a 2005 Buick and put it in your 1995 Buick regal.
When replaceing the toronado engine, The intake and carb must come from a toronado or Riviera because it is lower. The 78 came with a 403. A 307 or 455 Olds engine will work also as long as you put the low profile intake on
You should use the orange Dexcool, if you cant get it, you can use the green stuff as long as all other coolants are out of your radiator. Mixing different colored antifreezes makes a viscous, sludgy antifreeze.
Can you bolt on earlier heads/intake/exhaust manifolds.. from a 1970 Pontiac 455 to this 76 455 engine.
Could be either a rod bearing that doesnt move much until a load has been put on the engine or could be a sticking lifter - hard to tell as either sound changes when a load is put on the engine
How many hours to put in a distributor in a 4.3 s-10 2002?
It all depends on where you want to put it.
Actually, according to my owner's manual ('95 Riviera), it's 20 gallons. a zillion gallons I think it's somewhere around 18 gallons. Don't quote me though. I just bought my 1997 Riviera and the dealer put a couple gallons of gas in it before I left the lot (gas light was still on, was basically bone dry before he put gas in it). It cost me $33 to fill it at $2.05 a gallon. That's 16.1 gallons that I put in it myself, so if I'm correct that the dealer put in about 2 gallons the capacity is 18 gallons. I'm pretty sure the 95 and 97 have the same tank, not positive though.
