I was trying to remember a place in Ken's neck of the woods. Buick is in B.C.

Of course it's been over 40 years since I was there, so the guy may have moved to Pontiac.

I have to agree, I did my poorboy 3 years ago.
It is the single best modification to the 1200, once installed - not 1 electrical issue.
Best $300.00 bucks I spent.

Not a hard job at all, just mt two cents!

Well, I replaced my stator 7 years ago and haven't had any related problems since. So, I win!

Don still around right? I emailed him late last summer. I hadn't heard anything about him passing away.

that is the most complete I have seen, and he is including the Timing Belts.
he seems to be up front in that it is a PreOrder before he makes up the kits.


don't blame him for not having them made up in advance.
