Can anyone direct me to a good site where I can get info, support, or guidance in a motor swap?

I am transplanting the motor and transmission from a 1992 Buick Roadmaster into a 1988 Cadillac Brougham d’Elegance. Mechanically, a straightforward swap-but I plan on transplanting the fuel injection as well.

The Cadillac currently has the 307-200r4 setup.

I have a 2002 Buick Regal with a coolant leak.  Two things have been done so far, both of which I believe were needed.

First the lower intake manifold gasket was replaced.  Secondly, at a later date, I had the heater core replaced.

My question relates primarily to the heater core.  There is what I’m calling a drain port (don’t know if that’s the correct name) on the firewall which I believe provides drainage for the heater assembly.

Should I ever see fluid coming out of this port?

Does the port drain the air conditioner as well?  If it does then you would probably get condensation drainage.

I’m trying to narrow down my search for a continued leak.

Thanks for any help you can provide.

Hello. I have a Buick LeSabre Custom 1987 3.8 (front-wheel drive) with automatic transmission, how do I change the seal affixed to the output shaft on the gearbox? I have already fitted out a bdel of the shaft from the wheel and out, (this part is about 50 centimeters), so I have therefore only the part that sits in the gearbox remains but can not get it. Hope you understand what I mean …

Today, my 1996 Buick Riviera with supercharger and 120K miles has developed a problem. Both the odometer and speedometer have stopped working. In addition,the transmission is whinning and the car’s performance is poor—poor acceleration and high taching before shifting. I have not checked tranaxle fluid level yet. Any idea what this problem mght be?   In addition, he Check Engine Light is On.  Thanks

’95 Buick Riviera passenger side view mirror, it was hit into a mail box.. the fixture is fine, but the motor was broken off it’s posts so it’s basically dangling (still works oddly enough) and the mirror with the frame plate broke off completely. I have a replacement, but I’d rather not have a white mirror on my red car…. is there a way for me to pop off the glass and take this thing apart? I would like just to put the new motor with the attached frame plate in my red fixture… or should I suck up the price and just get the replacement painted?
