Hi all, I am new to the forum and also new to working on Buick's and Rivieras. I am 20 years old and any experience is more than welcomed. I have been restoring a 1967 riviera with the original 430 and transmission; it has been a frame up job. However no restoration is complete with out some headaches . We have gotten to the point where the motor starts and runs consistently. However the wheels don't move when the car is in drive. The drive shaft is in correctly and the transmission is hooked up with exception of the vacuums and the transmission kick down "stuff". When i got the car the transmission was detached from the motor (I was assuming that the transmission was mostly empty). The questions that I have are do the vacuums and the kick down stuff need to be attached for the wheels to move? Also how are you able to make sure the transmission fluid are at the right levels with out the transmission running or being hot? Also does anyone have a "educated guess" has to how much the transmission will take? Thanks any help would be great!!!!!
