PostSubject: Selling my 91 OCC   Mon Aug 15, 2011 9:51 am

I have decided to sell my 91 Olds CC. 113k, L03, Dark maple with red cloth interior, almost no rust from a CT car! Asking $900 to members.
I have done a fair amount of work to the car since I got it in February of this year. All of the following has been within the last 2k miles.

new brake pads and shoes all around, new rear wheel cylinders, repacked front bearings, turned rotors and flushed system. PO replaced master cylinder not too long ago.
New Delco fuel pump
Rebuilt steering system, replaced everything but the box. That includes the U/L ball joints, tie rod ends, adjusters, center link and idler. Its the best steering B-body I have ever owned now.
Reman distributor
cap rotor, delco plugs an wires
Intake manifold gaskets to address an oil leak
Upper/lower rad hoses
Oil pressure sender
PO replaced the WP and starter right before I bought the car.

Cloth interior is in excellent condition, very clean. That was one of the reasons why I bought this car. Has tint all around, not sure of the %.
New pioneer head unit with front USB port, sony speakers all around.
I added a keyless entry system and added perimeter illumination.
Added 4 not fleetwood "tug boat" horns and cornering lights.
Paint is faded and can use some help. I repainted the really bad stuff so the car doesn't look terrible.
The only rust this car had was in the rear quarters caused by a roof rack leak. I fixed the hole in the PS, can't tell it was ever there. Underbody is amazing.

Now the problem with the car as to why I'm not asking a whole for it: The engine runs good, but the torque converter in the tranny is acting up. Anytime it locks the converter, you get a non stop shuddering. I tried replacing the TCC solenoid and cleaned the valve body, but that did nothing for it. Pressures are good, its either the TCC itself or an O-ring on the input shaft. Either way, I would have to pull the tranny to fix it and really don't have the time or interest to do it. I have the itch to get a fleetwood and need a parking spot first. For any of you guys, $900 OBO.

With all that said, if your up to the work to fix the TCC issue, this is a great car. As it is I took it to and from wagonfest, so you can drive this one home. I disconnected the TCC wire from the PCM so it doesn't try to engage it anymore.

I'll try to get some more pics once the rain passes, but for now here it is at our past wagon fest.


And when I first got it home


I took some pics during the few minutes it stopped raining.

Lowered to $800. All she needs is an LT1, or maybe an LSx.....

Or an old inline motor with zoomy headers through the hood, and an S-10 5 speed trans with a crazy tall shifter!

I did change those Nick, Delco plugs and wires. I think the cap/rotor are BWD. Timing is also dead on.

Mechanically this thing was a basket case. In retrospect I probably would have been better off parting it out than selling it for what I got for it.
