  1. Thanx 4 the update with that info!
  2. Very nice looking 41! Is this a Century?
  3. Sorry to report, this system will be offered as complete as possible when the decision to go to plan B, or C, etc is arrived at. I also need more data to conclude this fan is interchangable from the Caddy to Bewack!
  4. Ron 605-237-4878 he is parting a 56 spec currently. Good to hurry cuz crushing is in its future maybe yet this week!
  5. Drilled top of cross member for mount pad to bolt to as stick version has different hole location. Had to do some filing of bolt holes as the aftermarket thrust pad with three studs on each side was not precisely jigged when vulcanized and studs were up to 1/4" off from stock stuff, so re-enforcing plates that are supposed to slide on over the studs for extra support when installed, wouldn't. Pretty amazing how this finally went together relatively easy once I discovered the stick crossmember was going to solve the alignment issue. All tightened up now so I can move to reassemble rear suspension and refurbish brakes. Can't wait to test drive this thing for first time. Been up on jack stands for quite some time! Nice to have it move under it's own power without the major trans fluid dump I had with the other Dyna trans. Details to follow.
  6. See Dear, this why I have a hard time getting rid of seemingly unimportant Buick parts! Call Ron @ 605-237-4878. B4 he sends the 56 Dr sedan to the crusher, hurry if you want those he doesn't hesitate long! Forgot to mention. Very nice person and reasonable on price. Highly recommended by me!
  7. Posted solution I stumbled upon today(way most things seem to get solved by yours truly) in modified section, as I'm trying to comply with form rules for subject matter. I'm quite proud of compliance in this case, (usually have problems with rule following), so, if your curious it's in modified. Enjoy! For the purists, At least it's going to be a RESTO-ROD!
  8. Greetings folks! After a winter slumber, finally got back on the 56 dyna in 55 Century. Had the drive shaft sorted B4 winter stopped me, but needed to reconfigure trans mount for the 1" move of the trans toward the rear becuz of the longer length of the 56 trans. Tried turning the cross member end for end 180 degrees. No dice! With the cross member having a 3/4"offset curve it amounted to a 1-1/2" move, too far and I also would have to drill three holes in the blank vertical facing rearward now for the thrust part of the mount to bolt to. Frustrated, I picked up the standard trans crossmember I was scavenging bolts from and vi-OLEE, THE CENTER LINE UP RIGHT UNDER THE HOLES FOR THE TRANS MOUNT CUSHION! Lined them both up and marked hole spacing and the photos hopefully show the rest! YAY! Bolting in car next with newfound confidence that this thing will drive soon!
  9. Yeah, apologies all around, but ya know, I think those 3 million xtree votes you got for good looks were cast illegally!
  10. Just sayin, I think Skips the only one actually doing the making of the gauge faces.
  11. Somebody could be good. Mines a 55. Ill be happy to finish the mods already started!
  12. Just thought Id post some more pix of this lovely, so folks can see that it will be donating everything possible b4 it goes 2 car heaven.One man's junk etc. Comes to mind. With so many old cars crushed its hard to decide what all to save and whats not worth it cuz nobody would need/want it anyway?
  13. Sounds almost like that darn Greg guy I've heard about! Geessh!
  14. There was no chassis with this body shell. No engine trans, rear end. The body was unbolted and the chassis went away years ago according the the son who took over after pop popped! I bought the complete body with the air cond system nearly complete, except that it would appear the AC compressor went with the engine, as did the ps pump. If you look at pix I posted you may notice the empty engine compartment, which allowed easy viewing of the AC components. I actually don't know what fan was used on this setup. I saw, I bought! These days, I've learned, if its stuff that's hard to find generally, and U find it for sale, you bid the same day as the auction, cuz if U don't, U come back and some more decisive person has had the good sense not to hesitate, so, details to follow cuz since I'm not familiar with this system yet it's hard to tell what's not there. I will post what I discover, including pix of the AC parts as removed and what's missing as I learn that. Is a six blade radiator fan what would have come on this car with AC? I have many different configurations and blade counts on Buick fans in my"stash"/hoard. If you want Six blade I have a very nice one from 56 Cadd. Bet it's the same as Buick. I'll post a pic. No, not right now! It's dark here.
