  1. Parts

    Hi SSmcDonald, thank you for your message. My problem is that I am at home in Germany. Spare parts for these vehicles are not available in Germany. I can not buy parts on a parts market. I always have to buy from a dealer in the USA. The last dealer called for a package of 1 kilogram, $ 70. I find that very much. I have 2 American pre-war cars and I do not feel like having problems anymore. I do not want to buy a third problem now. The last sentence of your article is a very good sentence Wish you a good time. The last sentence of your post is a very good sentence. Gebo

    Hi, Many thanks for your response. It was very helpful to me. I think I will not make the purchase. I already have two cars. The spare parts procurement there is also difficult. I do not need a vehicle where the replacement parts are hard to come by. Gebo

  7. 1929 Buick - Problem with Radiator

    Rod, looking at some pictures on the web I noticed that the inlet/thermosthat housing is slightly different, as you can see in the attached picture. There are even differences within the Series' of one year. Mark, that is a very nice car your son has. Do you know where I could get one of these radiator caps? Also do you happen to have a picture of this car's inlet/thermosthat housing? Can you tell e te size/diameter of the cap?
  8. 1929 Buick - Problem with Radiator

    Thanks for the answers everyone. @ Bob Engle: I checked the engine and the there is no water in the oil and the head gasket is still fine. Also there is no white smoke when the engine runs and all cylinders have full compression (I did a test on it). @AzBob: Thanks for the link, I will try to contact the guys behind restorationstuff.com, I alreadyd contacted Bob @ Bob's Automobilia, he does have some parts I maybe able to use. How much water should actually be in the radiator when the engine is not running? If I do fill it to cover the core, there is not a lot of room left to the top of the radiator, only about 1.5-2 inches...
  9. I have a big problem and hope you can help me. I bought a 1929 Buick 29-44 Series 121. The vehicle looked good. At home, I realized that there were 1,85 gal. water missing in radiator. I filled in the water and started the engine. The water came up out of the radiator opening. I realized then that the gaskets were missing on the radiator cap. I tried to find rubber gaskets, but could not. Then I wanted to check the thermostat on the radiator. I realized there is no thermostat. The radiator seems to have been rebuilt, probably in Europe. I assume they could not find a thermostat with housing so this part has been not installed. So the water flows freely into the radiator at all times and fills it completly until it overflows. Since there is no gasket on the cap, it just spills out. My question is. 1. Where can buy a proper radiator cap for this model? 2. Does anyone know a manufacturer of a thermosat housing with thermostat? Thanks for your answers. gebo
