  • First 442 post

    I guess I'll be the first! I own a 1986 oldsmobile cutlass 442. It's almost completely original. It's black/silver with gray interior. It's all power without the t-tops. Recently I decide to fix all the small problems with car. The hood had a light amount of rust under the front lip so I replaced it with a new repacement from Parts train. The high speed blower has never worked since I've had the car so I troubleshot and fixed it(wire connection by the passenger valve cover). The battery was drained from either time or the fact that the diode trio was bad inside the alternator. I fixed that yesterday. Now my drivers seat motor coupling is broken so I purchased a 1988 cutlass power seat track but it's different so will attempt to rewire it into the original switch and wiring soon. I also recently replaced the cc carb with a new one(not rebuilt) from a guy on ebay I purchased for $65. The car runs and drives really well. The only other problem the car has is the dash is showing it's age. It's cracking in the corners. Overall it's a nice ride though.

      Sweet, nice 442! Probably the coolest looking one of all of them. I had an 86 Salon with a claret interior that I painted like a 442 years back... I cut that car up due to rust. Wish I saved the grilles though... those are may favorite style.

      I know you can still find the power seat coupling from GM under part number 20614175 for under $20 and it is not too hard to fix. Probably save you the headaches of rewiring and installing a new setup.

          Hey I just noticed the part number for the coupling. Thanks alot I've been trying to find a part number. My sister works as a warranty administrator at a gm dealership and I get a really good discount on genuine parts.

            Ok, my sister just called me back with a price of $8 and I will have the coupling in my hands today. Thanks again 88hurstolds. On ebay they have them for $20 plus 5 shipping.
