86 Buick

My name is John Ross, I am 67 now and bought a 86 Buick Regal 5.0 liter
engine . It has a "Q-Jet too. That is why I stumbled onto this site ,because
of the carburetor info. This quest for carb info is because I bought a "Remote"
Starter Key" but when cold, or sits overnight , It won't start unless I get in
the car and pump the gas pedal , after that "first start , its starts right up
if I don't wait around 5 to 6 hrs to try the " Remote" again.

Wish had the money for a "GN" Buick ,but this one is
a good start......It is a lot different than the chopped top 53 ford 2 dr
I did when I was young ( 17 ,an working in a body shop Annapolis,Md.)
I Have a picture of the Buick, ford too. Well I guess thats enough for
now. I will ask questions later
John Ross

welcome John.....Most remote starters are made for the newer cars. Ones with a carb, need a special solenoid that gives the throttle a kick to set the choke.

You should ask in the engine forum.....one of the guys there may have some ideas.

has a trunk lock and door lock and unlock buttons, maybe I will use
one of them along with some kind of "special solenoid"
