    1941-42 carb linkage

    1941-42 carb linkage

    Thank Matt! I tried both those places with different results. Seems most employees at these local outlets don't want to go the extra mile. If they can't just find it on the screen right away they say sorry. I'm going to take them and my tablet to the stores and request a little more assertively! Can't really see the bellcrank on the firewall in the photos, but my friend has a 40 Cent with dual carbs, so when he gets back in town I'll ask to look at his, hoping it's stock linkage! Yes, One is longer for the large engine, other for 248". Did U keep the broken exhaust manifold? If so I may be interested in trying to have a local guy who was very successful welding another manifold for me take a shot at one, as I'm short one ex manifold. Pm if U like to discuss.

    1941-42 carb linkage

    Finally got around to trying to figure out how this linkage is supposed to go together? Please look at pix and post if I assembled these correctly. Where can one get new end link keepers like the ones in photo that are rusted beyond usability?

    1941-49 Spec/Cent sedanettes

    Two steering wheels hanging there. One is an original fair 1954. The other is a learning lesson wheel for my 1939. Bought at the nationals, it had one smallish triangle chip and two small scratches. Easy right? Put it in a guys hands my buddies have used without estimate. How bad could it be? Went to pick it up. 497.00 for epoxy chip repair and respray! So much for trust with him! "I had 8.5 hrs and $90.00 materials in it"! Fool me once jumped to mind! Wow! Checked with a couple others, said 2.5 hrs max without a nap! Ok, I'm done whining. Woulda, shoulda, coulda! Trying to focus on how good it will look on my 39 opera cpe!

    Motor for 58 Buick Special

    As long as you havent numped at anything yet, you do know the "dynaflow" 401s also bolt to that trans. Wouldnt be stock, but more phun! WooHoo! Oh oh! Scuse me, would you prefer Spec 250 hp or higher comp. 300 hp. Hmm--- 25hp difference from 364" to 401"? Could switch to stick, then you could bolt in a later 401". The Devil makes me do these things!

    Road trip to Mankato, Mn

    Greetings Thought I would send along a couple of photos of a 1916 Buick firetruck restored by Oddesey (sp?) Restorations, Fridley, Mn. It's stunning to see the job done on the gold leaf applied to the bodywork! Based, we were told on a touring car from Buick bought new as a frame and front sheet metal and then fabricated to the fire vehicle by a funeral car builder. It is now housed in the carriage house next to the restored residence once belonging to the owner of Mother Hubbard Flour in Mankato, now the home of Blue Earth County Historical items. Worth a visit, but limited visiting hrs on website if interested. House is beautiful as well!
