    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

    Matt, I could not find a " tongue in cheek" emoji. Ben

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

    Help with Modern Car Problem

    " 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

    Question. Selling a few things from trunk allowed? Have a coupe sets of caps [41-50 [ and a couple sets of full covers for a '50. Also a good gas tank Ben

    Fuel Pump 1938 Century...

    According to the reference section on Team Buick, the block is indeed a 1948 Series 70. 1948 numbers began with 4,999 881. 1949 began 5,220, 972. The 7 indicates 70 series, Roadmaster. Your valve cover appears to be from a '37, as I believe '38 or '39 began with using only two bolts.. Ben

    Why does my 1929 Cadillac ride so poorly?

    Matt, I have refrained from jumping in. Will now. From experience, getting oil or grease between the leaves will HELP. For awhile. I owned and drove an old semi several years back. The rear springs were worn where the tips of each leave contacted the next. I did , somewhat, what you are planning. The lube is only needed at the ends of each leaf, and the longer ones most. It won't last forever. On the truck, I did it ever couple weeks, but that was way more miles than you will put on the Cadillac in a year. Try it, you will be surprised. Ben

    Well, Executive Decision! Teardrop plan scuttled. The extra time needed to get George ready along with other things has rendered time too short to get it ready. As much as I was looking forward to it, pressure is off. Be there Tuesday noonish. See Ya. Anyone else staying at Woodspring Suites on Briarwood? Ben

    Engine swap

    If I understand your question on the rear mount, I believe the '52 flywheel housing has the same ears as the '38. If not, the flywheel housing from the '38 should bolt right up to the '52. I THINK! Ben

    Engine swap

    Sure will, Bobby, if the engine you are talking about is a 263. Assuming that is what you meant with the 264 comment. Have you ever worked on one of these straight eight engines? Is the '52 from a standard transmission car or a dynaflow. Important to know. Ben

    57 caballero project

    Thanks on the vintage air. Does it do a good cooing the entire car? I used an origina Mark IV in my '50. Cooles real well, just a little noisier than I like. Ben
