    I think 61polara has posted good advice above. Is the executor of the estate available to make those requests? Dave

    1931 60 exhaust leak

    Found the root cause of the leak, the last guy damaged the gasket putting it together. I re-read the advice since I am getting ready to put it back together. The advice on using Olson's gaskets was excellent. They are very knowledgeable and seem to really want to help their customers. Dave

    Car cover recommendations & lessons learned

    California Car Covers would be a good place to call with your questions. I have used many of their covers and have been satisfied. I think, based on your questions, vermontboy has the answer. Dave

    1931 60 exhaust leak

    I used a core plug (freeze plug) to block off the tube to the heat riser,. The tubes I replaced inside the riser were replaced with McMaster-Carr stainless tubing. It was slightly too large but the machine shop was not concerned and did a great job in making the swap. No cracks so far, the old heat riser with the factory tubes was cracked extensively so I am not sure on the stainless being a problem. There were several discussions on this topic on this forum that were helpful. Dave

    1931 60 exhaust leak

    Bob, I did plug the heat riser tube when I replaced the riser and tubes inside. It made a real difference in the way it runs in this hot weather. It is such a wonderful car to drive I may be running it too much! Hugh, I like the brass nut idea I am not sure on the stainless studs. One stud (the one with a flat washer) has been replaced since it looks like 7/16. The others are 3/8. It is important to me to have it run good and be dependable but it is an unrestored original 45,000 mile car so I hate to put a lot of shiny new parts on the engine. Thanks again Dave

    No the flat one is on number 8 and the leak looks like the front side of 6. Dave

    Mark, Thanks for the reply. Yes it looks like all of the curved washers are there, maybe one looks flat but it could be me. Dave

    1931 Buick 8-66S door adjustments- please help if you can

    I may have misunderstood but I would not do any adjusting until all bolts are in place and snug since adding the bolt may change things. On my 31 Chevrolet I was able to loosen the bolt and use a large pry bar to get just enough clearance for the shim. Might be to crude for a Buick! Dave

    Is the frame crossmember too high on a 1933 Chevy Master?

    There are some specifications for your car here on the GM Heritage site. https://www.gmheritagecenter.com/docs/gm-heritage-archive/vehicle-information-kits/Chevrolet/1933-Chevrolet.pdf Dave
