    In that case, here's just the clip from the eBay listing above for $11 at The Parts Place

    But....... it says "This part is not compatible with the 1971 Buick Centurion Base 7.5L 7456CC 455Cu. In. V8 GAS OHV Naturally Aspirated." :(

    I would call BS on that. I'm sure it's the same.

    My thoughts exactly.
    I even changed the car model into a LeSabre and Electra, but same results.

    By the way:


    "This part is compatible with 1 vehicle(s) matching 1971 Buick Skylark Base 7.5L 7456CC 455Cu. In. V8 GAS OHV Naturally Aspirated."

    :cool:

    It's the Parts Place..they can't be bothered to know if it works on a Buick.

    Or they didn't bother/forgot to add the Centurion (and LeSabre + Electra to the list in the eBay advertisment.
    eBay also lists cars like a Buick Electra 225 Wagon, next to the Estate Wagon :p

    There is a slight difference to the ones on the market . Some of the sensors vacuum ports are a bit further apart than others . Its no big deal . A small Rat tail file used on the air cleaner itself opens it up a bit . The clip works in either sensor .
