    '64 401 Nailhead Questions

    My money is on fuel. May be as simple as a plugged filter. May be a loose connection somewhere in the line . Try this. unhook the gas line at the carb. with some kind of a hose attached to the line running to a bucket, crank the engine for a few seconds. Good flow? Bad flow ? consistent? If bad, move the hose back up the line to the inlet of any filter and check again. Ben

    Raise your hand if you drove at least one old Buick this weekend

    Thank you for posting that, Brian. Lucky enough to meet ME? Well, I don't know about that, Paul, but I am most happy to have shook your hand. Ben

    '38 Special Throwout bearing

    Tyler, where are you? If the Piece you need is the same as later years, I have a spare. I think Buick calls it the "clutch release collar".It is a necessary piece as it does a couple functions. Ben

    Rebuilding 1951 Dodge

    Medd448, you will probably get several different answers. So let me jump in and be first. That is a fairly easy engine to work on. Back when these were just used cars I would drop the pan, pull the pistons and check clearances and wear. Chances were [ARE] good a set of bearings and rings were all it needed. Look at the valves and if none are burned, leave them alone. Perhaps lap them in if concerned. Probably run another 60,000 miles or more. Ben

    No need to pull the dash apart. Replace the speedometer drive cable. Ben

    2007 Lucerne Brake Weirdness

    My PA has been a good one. I think I would like to have about a 1998 or so with low miles. The way I read Barneys original post, I would be looking at late '60s thru '70s. Ben

    Michael, Carl is right. Might help if you specify what engine you are talking about. Ben

    " This ain't no Ouija board, boys" , as an old boss , Percy Shook, would say. Someone should be able to figure this out. Perhaps visit edinmass? Ben
