    What did you do to your Olds powered vehicle today?

    Was the compact x pipe sitting right under the existing crossmember passenger hump? Interesting. Reworked the plug gaps today. Also on the heads, Decades ago, the EGR lines at each port had been terminated about an inch out, and folded over to keep them from leaking. I plugged them a better way...

    What did you do to your Olds powered vehicle today?

    LOL That sounds sweet ! Must sound great opening it up on the highway. I dunno if I wanna go there yet. But I like the Xpipe idea .. and shorties still have a chance. Shortie's separate downpipes will be easier to line up with my cross member humps.

    What did you do to your Olds powered vehicle today?

    Today? Did more pricing on the exhaust setup. Thinking of going headers to x-pipe , straight run down the middle, two mufflers, etc just like all the GBody setup images out there. The headers in mind.. are cheap Flowtech that @Olds 307 and 403 hates, ... and so do I. I'll just get good...

    I got the preferred coil then. Thanks for pan & spark info today. I'll fine tune those values in this week.

    What did you do to your Olds powered vehicle today?

    The "super coil" that was in the Accel HEI. I swapped out the whole stock distributor assy to Accel years ago. High Voltage ignition modue is there as well. I googled the BT coil it's yellow with the high voltage warning just like mine. But mine has white / red leads, no yellow. But it is...

    Possible Father and Daughter project, 88 Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme Classic Brougham

    LOL. I just came upstairs after cleaning the area good and applying sealant. I was going to use the Risolene clear German stuff I had left over from a Volvo job. Good stuff. But I also had some fresh Permatex High Temp red here. So I used the Permatex. If it fails I'll step up to the Optimum...

    Possible Father and Daughter project, 88 Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme Classic Brougham

    I had the car out today and later noticed Bloody Mary the Transmission is still leaking somewhere. I think it's the kickdown cable seal thought. I've replaced the whole thing once and reseated it twice. It'll pool in the valley between the cable and the filler tube, and drip right by the...

    Can you smell the raw power of my Mighty 260 ? I can't either. Installed new cap 'n rotor today. Pitched the huge Accel top cap and just put the coil in the new kit. Yeah moved the sticker over too.

    Well if nothing else , you could run with a leak longer..;) Actually I came here to say your dropped pad didn't look bad. Mine looked the same way. Just a bit of the grey stuff. Nice not to find mystery hardware in the pan.

    What did you do to your Olds powered vehicle today?

    Promised my Wife her garage back so I did some spot-fill with liquid flex-seal in the rips in the vinyl top this AM. That's right, it comes in black and it works. I need it sealed before it goes back outside. We all know what's under there. And that Pandora's box is going to have to wait until...

    LOL I know the "grandkid duty". Son in Law's stationed at Scotts AFB and was down here Thanksgiving for 10 days. The boys are 3 and 5. I'm still finding legos over here.

    What did you do to your Olds powered vehicle today?

    Well I can formally announce Bloody Mary the transmission is finally done leaking. @Olds 307 and 403 I recall your comment that they leak like a siv and I didn't escape that curse over here. The highlights of the afternoon were one filter bolt broke off, amazingly with little effort. It came...

    What did you do to your Olds powered vehicle today?

    Well I couldn't find the new thread starter and since I'm doing this today, this thread will do. I wonder if this is just smaller filter and will work OK. 82 Cutlass 260 with.. what I thought.. was a Th250. 13 bolt. My pump gasket, Detent cable, front ring seal so far all matched. Duralast...

    Me back too.

    Ah. Price was the real factor. My single is leaking further down somewhere. I'm also missing a cat converter. So I saw a $200 set of headers and was thinking if I do that, get the correct cross member, and go duals, later when I upgrade the power plant I am already set. Then pitch the cheap...
