JOHNNYLARK'S Stage-1 Buick 455 Skylark with "TA286-08H" Camshaft & 1.6 Rockers!!! 5-30-2013
This was a COOL DAY! I finally met "Johnnylark" of V8buick.com at the Home Depot Parking Lot MUSCLE CAR MEET. YOU MUST SEE THE "entrance" Johnnylark made with this Buick 455 Stage-1 Skylark's TA PERFORMANCE "286-08H" cam CHOPPING like crazy accompanied by his TA PERFORMANCE 1.6 ROCKERS! Johnny & his COOL son "John" made my day. In the video I recorded prior to this one ... I stated that there's NO Buick Muscle Cars attending ... and felt disappointed until I heard ... we ALL heard this Buick 455 Stage-1 chopping "Sinister-Like." This is a very similar cam to that I have in my '87 Stage-1 Buick 455 Regal (currently at the Dyno Shop). The guy in the white wife-beater suggesting that Johnny "reverse it in," actually stated a few seconds before that ... "A car like THIS shouldn't be over there by itself." Classic! JOHNNY IS THE COOLEST!!!
1971 Buick Riviera 455ci engine rebuild start up
For more information on this engine build please go to: http://www.probuildamerican.com/gallery/1971-buick-riviera-455-engine-rebui ld/ This Buick 455 came to us with a distinct knock from the bottom end, it had been rebuilt 2 or 3 times by others but was still knocking and suffering with low oil pressure. Normally we do not remove and fit engines but this time we made an exception, we removed the engine, stripped it and cleaned all parts, decided which new parts we needed and when they arrived we set about getting this engine as perfect as possible. After a lot of hard work we got her finished and installed back into the 1971 Buick Riviera.
