The Buick started to leak some coolant. It had a bad radiator hose and a leaking thermostat housing. The metal of the thermostat housing was very rusted and pitted so i ordered new parts. They look better and it will give me a better seal.

The rusted thermostat housing:
Thermostat itself does not look any better:
New thermostat in place:
I had some troubles with the points and condenser ignition system. I replaced them with a Pertronix Ignitor electronic ignition. It senses the lobes on the rotor shaft.
I was a bit in doubt if this will work. The lobes are very shallow. But i was wrong. It worked very good!
On this picture you see the pertronix igniter mounted on the distributor base plate very close to the rotor shaft:
After installing the electronic ignition i need to check the ignition timing again:
After topping of the cooling system and adjusting the ignition timing it runs great again with hopefully no leaks:
