That wasn't an exhaust leak I heard ticking.

    I got that. Thanks Larry.
    The rocker has an “L” stamped on it, and is closest to the firewall.

    Maybe it wasn’t posted as a for sale post?
    It’s possible it was posted as a thread by Staged70.
    I’ve searched in the past but cannot find it.
    If I remember correctly, the post was titled something like “well, it’s time”
    The body of the thread mentioned Terry’s SunCoupe.

    I seem to remember the car was for sale on another site, maybe Craigslist, and the lead was posted here. Eventually a member recognized the car as John's. I could be wrong though.

    I think you're right Joe. If it was posted here, I could find it by researching posts and threads by both Brian and John.

    See screenshots from a conversation I had with a member, the conversation has a link to what I believe to be the for sale thread.
    The link errors out when clicked.

    I think there was a board crash/upgrade/purge/ton of spammers cycle some years ago and lots of links became non-functional.

    I didn't see anything yet. I was able to research all the way back 20 years to Johns posts and threads. Very time consuming to go through everything, but if he posted anything about the engine in your car, it is here somewhere, it isn't lost.

    Thanks for the link Larry.
    Nothing in there about my Sun Coupe.

    Parts have been ordered. I’m going to replace all rockers and both shafts as they are showing some wear.
    I found most of the broken rocker pieces.
    Going to pull the intake and have a good look inside.
    A fresh coat of paint won’t hurt either.
    Any recommendations for paint that won’t burn off?
    I’m still using the factory choke and quadrajet.

    I've used header paint but I don't know if they make a red that will match up to Buick or not.

    I’ll search for a thread on blocking
    off the exhaust crossover.
    Maybe the choke will work good enough.
