Sounds like a good way to go. I hate the thought of changing this cam out, mostly because I am too lazy and it isn't my thing.

I'll bet a guy who is an expert on nailheads could change a cam out on a newer buick too.

I forgot it had a nailhead. My bad. It is good Russ offered. I am sure you would do the same for him. 85 miles is not that far. The big thing is knowing for sure what you want and deciding it justifies the expense. I would guess that a new cam and lifter set for the nailhead would be similar to my 57 Olds. Pretty pricey compared to a modern sbc.

Have you considered just going to standard brakes?

Thanks, I got that Plymouth one and it will work I am sure. I put one from a Buick under the floor of my truck when I put the power brakes in it and they worked great. It actually looked exactly like the Mr Gasket, only out of metal. I will be looking into doing this, I think it will solve the problem. If not there is that Caviler pump.

I finally painted my cowl today. It looks good other than a little trash. It really should have been remasked but I knew I was going to have to cut and buff it anyway. It is time to move on to the doors.
