    Door Hinge Repair Wood Frame 27'

    On my '26 I used "T nuts" which worked well and stay in place when you took the screws out.

    Piston rings

    I would appreciate it if someone could point me in the right direction to get .020 over rings for a 1927 Standard 6. I've tried several suppliers and there appears to be .020 over 1/8 wide compression rings available but not a 1/8 wide oil ring. Wayne

    '27 Crankshaft specs

    Does anyone have the specifications for the crankshaft and rods for a 1927 standard? Took a rod bearing out the other day, so I’m preparing to re-babbitt and want to know the starting values. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

    Cylinder Water Inlet 28-Master

    I have an intake off a '27 motor that's surplus to my needs if your interested. In fact I'm parting out a McLaughlin 27-27 which is going to be too much work for restoration, if there is any thing else needes. Wayne

    1924 Chassis

    I found this rolling chassis of a 1924 Buick that the fellow wants to get rid of. It was touring that the body got made into a hot rod leaving the chassis, running motor, steering column (with mint steering wheel) and other spare parts. The deterrent is that it’s on Vancouver Island B.C. He said cheap, whatever that means. He also had a good looking rad shell with lovers for a 1931 Buick. Any interest I'll get the contact info.

    The problem is that I live in Canada and these companies won't ship paint to Canada.
