I have two Buick front covers, one for a 215 and one for a 300. Surplus to my needs, so looking for a now home for them.
No idea where I got them or what I paid so will accept reasonable donations to the V8 website plus postage.
Located in Canada.

Save a good one for me, Richard. I tried to PM you, but it seems to be not functioning at the moment.

Seems I can't send nor reply to PMs.

I would like the 300 if you think it is in serviceable condition. No corrosion in the water jackets or wear in the oil pump gear area?

Here's a pic of the 215 cover.

I identified the covers using the number stamped on the front.

Main difference is the timing tab location & the small extension at the top to mount an alternator bracket. Both used rope seals that can be replaced with a neoprene crank seal.
