93 roadmaster parts?

buddy is pulling the 350 out of a 93 roadmaster for his truck and hes probably parting the rest of it. is there anything in one of these cars that's worth grabbing for our old cars? I may get the bucket seats. jim

Overdrive transmission, if it still works, that is.

The only reason someone would want insurance is if they want to pay someone elses bills or want someone else to pay their bills.

BIGOT is a word used by people that can't use logical reasoning to prove that you are wrong when you don't agree with them.

Re: 93 roadmaster parts?

Many of those cars had posi rear ends. Don't know if they're worth much. Maybe to a street rodder?

Re: 93 roadmaster parts?

Gas tank and pump is a great swap for going EFI. Wagon for 64-67 El Caminos, and Sedan for others.
Also, maybe the steering box. Is your buddy taking the accessory drive setup? I love how those LT1s ran, but most people don't swap them into other vehicles now due to the optispark weirdness.
There were 3 different cooling options on those B-Bodies. The Roadmaster probably had 1 electric, and 1 mechanical fan.
Also, check the horns, I think only the Caddy had 4 note, Roadmaster might have 3, but check. I put Caddy 4 note on my El Camino, they all plugged right in with the factory harnesses.

Re: 93 roadmaster parts?

I second checking the rear end, it's probably an 8.5" and may very well have limited slip. Look for G80 code. I had a '95 caprice wagon that had 2.93's and posi from the factory.

Re: 93 roadmaster parts?

I think a lot of these had a 12.7:1 steering gear (like the Jeep Grand Cherokee box). The steering box would have the correct travel for a Chevelle. If it's free, I'd grab it.

Re: 93 roadmaster parts?

I'll ask about the steering box. if it's a posi and correct series, hes hoping to install it in his truck. the LT1 came out a year or two later. the 350 is a tbi motor that looks to be a direct swap for his 90 chevy truck. jim

Ah, that's right, 94. I had a 1994 Caprice LS with LT1, posi, tow cooling...

Re: 93 roadmaster parts?

It's a roller cam, one piece rear seal block. The swirl ports are fine in a truck, but suck for performance. A pair of Vortec heads and an LT1 cam, and it'd be nice all around daily driver motor, or work great in a truck for cheap providing it's in decent shape.

Re: 93 roadmaster parts?

Did 93 have an electric fan ? If so I would save the fan and the shroud which is usually all one unit.

The rear brakes. 11" backing plates that fit the small bearing car axles USED to be available new for $35ish each, now they are pretty hard to find.

Re: 93 roadmaster parts?

The rear end assembly and rear control arms and sway bar (if equipped) may swap directly into '73 - '77 A cars. However there is not much of a market there. Have listed roadmaster parts before on the V8buick site. No market there, it is primarily a Skylark/GS site. There may? be niche
'91 - '96 Roadmaster / Cadillac Fleetwood sites out there.

That's interesting, but it makes sense. The later b bodies are about the same size as the '73 to '77 a bodies.

Re: 93 roadmaster parts?

I have a buddy with one (not sure the exact year). Good condition body panels with decent wood grain are really hard to find according to him.
