    1941 Dash Set- refinished and ready to show (SOLD)

    Wow, 20's indeed, very cool. I had no idea the McLaughlins had this difference too. I remembered the window crank/escutcheon differences you shared with me a while back. These Buicks always seem to have something new to teach, thanks!

    1941 Dash Set- refinished and ready to show (SOLD)

    Ha, of course it was Doug, I was just being cheeky ; ) According to Lewis Jenkins, and supported by the 1941 Buick Engineering Information book (attached), the dash panels were tinted one of two colors. This was to match either the tan or grey upholstery.

    1941 Dash Set- refinished and ready to show (SOLD)

    Yes Pete, the dash panels were the same for all 1941 series. This is a refinished set I bought from a guy in a cowboy hat from Ohio to use on my car, but then found a perfect NOS set that I used instead.
  7. I have a 1941 dash set with new engine-turning listed on eBay with an opening bid of $475 + $40 shipping to the lower 48. More photos listed on eBay. https://www.ebay.com/itm/202340324198?ssPageName=STRK:MESELX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1555.l2649 I have other items for 1941 Buick currently listed as well. You're welcome to PM me with questions. Anderson

    1941 Buick fender skirt emblems needed

    MajesticDean, find a pair of 21" ornaments if you don't care (they pop up on eBay every so often, and should be cheaper for sure.) I have a pair of 24" ornaments if you're still in need. They will need to be re-chromed for show. Send me a PM if interested, Anderson Barney, I agree with Matt. Those ornaments are killer! Zavoom!

    1960 Electra on Craigslist Not Mine

    Wow, indeed! The contact info provided under the "reply" button: George (401) 258-2861
  10. Hill Jenkins in North Wilkesboro, NC. I bought my 1941-76C front floor mat from him and it was a nice fit. He sells to Bob's, so you might save by going direct. Last time we corresponded, his email address was: music_man_jetliner@yahoo.com

    1941 Buick- Clutch disc design question

    OK, I have a follow-up question...which direction is the darn disc installed??? There are no markings, but one side the the hub is bigger (extends further away from the face of the disc.) I thought this big side faced the transmission, to the rear, but the transmission is not fully sliding back into place, so now I'm not sure. Or maybe it's something else entirely? The transmission is 1/2" or so shy of touching the housing. We've tried giving it a wiggle, but it won't go any farther. We've tried pulling it back a little to see if there is an obstruction, but all looks clear. The transmission shaft splines appear to have engaged with the teeth of the disc hub, so we don't think that is it. If the teeth are engaged, the pilot bearing would also be aligned to engage, right? Re-tracing our steps: we replaced the pilot bearing, installed the disc (using an alignment tool before tightening the pressure plate bolts), installed a new throw out bearing (the cause of all this fun!), support collar (didn't forget that pesky snap ring that fell out during removal) and re-engaged the fork (clips and socket greased.) Then we greased the transmission shaft and tip. Went to slide the transmission back in place...disappointment! I'd appreciate of any words of wisdom, thanks : ) Anderson

    1941 Buick- Clutch disc design question

    Thanks so much for the replies, it gives me relief to hear others have had good results with the new stuff. I'll power onward! Anderson
  13. Anyone have experience with replacing an original design clutch disc with a modern design reproduction? Just wondering if the repro I just bought is going to be OK, or should I stick with my original and have it refaced? Attached are photos of my original, showing large dampening springs and a riveted collar. The '41 shop manual calls this collar a "sling" and and it faces the transmission. I supposed it's to help keep things clean, but I'm not sure if it is essential. The modern reproduction is from B**'s has the same 11" diameter, the same hole size (10 spline, 1 1/8") but has smaller springs and no sling. Hum???

    spring clutch plate

    Ken, While working to replace my throw out bearing, I decided to replace the clutch disc. Mine is a 41-76C, but I think is similar to your 40-76C. I ordered it from Bob's (old vs new pictured). It looks similar, however, the springs are smaller and most notably there is no collar as with the original. I'm wondering if this collar is necessary or not. Perhaps you or others may have handsome experience you'd be will to share? I was planning to install this weekend, but am hesitant until I know for sure... Great to follow your progress! Anderson
