There is a cable and motor that actuates the antenna, the cables break on these all the time.

you can get replacement cables at nos4gn.com

the passenger fender needs to be removed to access the antenna assembly.

Power antenna keeps running in down position on 1987 Buick Grand National. Is there a fuse I can pull as opposedto disconnecting the battery


Its most likely running because of a broken mast cable.
The ACC fuse powers the antenna. But it also powers the interior lights, door locks, etc..
May just want to go under the dash and find the connector and unplug it.
If you go for an aftermarket replacement mast, not all work.
The cable on that is most likely a smooth cabel with a J hook at the end. Most the aftermarkets have teeth and no hook.
Napa auto parts sells replacements that may work. When the antenna mast did the very same thing on my 89 Camaro I got a replacement from Corvette Central. Pricey for just a top section of the mast but just about all I could find.
Aftermarket antennas are fairly cheap and can work.

1987 Buick Grand National losing power, changed


Symptoms Like this usually point to the Fuel pump.

Also these cars suffer from inferior wiring to the fuel pumps and a substantial Voltage drop is noted between the Fuel pump relay and the Pump harness.

The fix for this is a "Hotwire" Kit

Fuel pump kits with a Hotwire kit are available at numerous Buick performance Vendors but the best stuff in my opinion come from Racetronix,com

You should also change the Prom Chip in the ECM to a modern
Chip from Turbotweak.
This will improve driveability greatly.

Buick Grand National vacuum brake conversion


^ Turbo Cars have Lots of Vaccum, Where did you ever get this idea from. I have personally converted 10+ Turbo Buicks to Vac brakes.

Make sure the check valve is okay at the booster. but it does sound like you have a bad booster.
Also, did you change the brake pedal to a Vac brake pedal?
They are not interchangeable.

Also, you should not have drilled the plenum, you can get a vaccum block to replace the plastic one on the top of the plenum with a vac brake port.
