1970 Jeep Wagoneer SJ Buick 350 Dauntless from North America
Luv the lines! Luv the size!
Battery failed (as batteries do:)
Sloppy Ignition (distributer)
Rear Window Electrics failed (no crank) -;
Leaky Valve Cover gaskets.
Haven't had this rig running very much. Bought it for $50 a few years ago and it has sat for about the last two. Read about the fellow that had his running in 2 days, after a 10 yr storage - hope mine is the same.
Plan to ship off the starter to a local eMotor shop for a heavy-duty rebuild using oversize fields.
Have already replaced the OEM alternator with a 100 Amp unit, replaced rubber coolant hoses with flexible metal, still looking for a 100% compatable model of Breakerless Distributer (maybe from a 75 Buick?).
Need to keep myself motivated and get this running again before winter...
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
