  1. The flip cap oiler is on the bearing it self. I am holding it open in the picture below. The early throw out bearings had replaceable carbon and the ones like that in my stock have no oiler. I suppose those were the type to put in oil but I don't know. Does the squealing last for just a second or continue all the time the clutch is in? Was it making noise before, why did you replace? Dave
  2. Was it making noise before replacing the throw out bearing? If it is a nos bearing (not a ball bearing type) I have been told it is good to apply oil in the flip cap for a period of time so it gets to the bearing material. Some say to soak it in oil but I have not tried that. It seems to me if the clutch is pushed in the pilot bearing is being used not the throw out bearing but I may not be thinking it through. Dave

    I hate to suggest something which you probably have done but have you polarized the system after taking the gen off each time? Dave

    34 Cherolet VIN issue

    When the California Highway Patrol inspected my 31 they were not impressed with the nailed on PA serial tag but I showed them a plate that the previous owner had riveted to the frame with the same number. They passed it with no problems. Dave

    1929 Chev Landaulet

    Chevrolet car sales were strong for the new six and remained so for Chevrolet until late in 1931. I think the researchers also though that Chevrolet sent one to each dealer for a traffic builder which would help the number. Dave

    Need carb manifold for 1932 Buick 8

    I am sorry to hear of your troubles. I have never heard of James Hoade but you should let the editor know so he is not being recommended to anyone else. One other place to try is where I bought mine for the 31. They bought a large quantity of parts, mostly Packard, and have sold them here and on ebay. Might be a 32 Buick part in there? Rick Lyon 518-637-1560. Dave ps You might try putting a wanted add in the Buick section below, may get other leads if nothing else.

    1929 Chev Landaulet

    The current estimate by those doing the research is 15,000 +. I think they have accounted for at least a 100 or so survivors. The theory is the 294/300 number came from just the Flint plant and a shorter than actual production period. Cars from almost all plants have been found. Dave

    Need carb manifold for 1932 Buick 8

    I found someone with 32 risers when I was looking for one for a 31. I think it was Mac Blair 724-463-3372 , my apologizes if my memory is not accurate! Dave

    Smoke cleared a bit and I saw this

    Did it still smell like linseed oil and turpentine ? My friends Handyman was a painters car and it always smelled of those.

    It has been modified some but it does look like it started as one. If you google 1955 Chevrolet Handyman many come up along with some original Chevrolet ads. Its a nice car however it started. Thanks for posting the picture. Dave added link https://55classicchevy.com/1955-chevrolet-station-wagons

    I think they called the pictured wagon a Handyman. http://www.automobile-catalog.com/make/chevrolet_usa/full-size_chevrolet_4gen/full-size_210_2gen_handyman_wagon/1955.html Dave

    1929 Chevy truck brake Light?

    I checked my car and the switch is actually mounted on the vertical part of the frame under the sill, not on the sill. It attaches with two 1/4 inch bolts. Same spot near the left rear corner of the floorboard opening so the operation of the brake cross shaft moves the switch. So much for going by memory! Dave

    1929 Chevy truck brake Light?

    It may not be the same but on a 31 it works off the brake cross shaft and can be found on the left sill when you remove the floor board. Dave
