Very nice following the restoration. Reminds me of so many adventures
driving 1/3 million miles behind those aluminum V8s, more than 4 decades
ago. I would have liked it so much better with a 4 speed stick.
One problem I had was a bad leak at the rear of that 5 bolt rocker cover,
the gasket would slip out of place. inside, and it became another (dirty)
breather. My fix was to bolt a piece metal inside at the same level as the
edge, a rail to keep the gasket in place. It was very easy to convert the
alternator to the later internally regulated type, which got rid of the reg
under the hood, and eliminated radio interference in my HAM radio.
Opening the hood on that turbo was like opening an oven, but with the
big radiator and proper overflow tank/pressure cap, it never overheated.
The trunk release on the big Olds was vacuum powered, and I managed
to adapt one to the Cutlass body by mounting it on the opposite edge.
