  1. 1955 Roadmaster brake drums

    What Bill has posted seems logical. Brake shoes are 2.50 and 2.25. There needs to be some space between the shoe and the drum or it will rub. Hence drum is 2.75 and 2.50.
  2. Electrolysis & Master Cylinder?

    Why not clean up with a solvent(brake cleaner) and paint?
  3. 1960 Buick 401 Black Carburator

    Need to keep this info in my memory bank!
  4. 1960 Buick 401 Black Carburator

    The crossover on mine was clogged. Some soot. I cleaned up with carb cleaner and reinstalled with new gasket.
  5. 1937 Model 48: RESTORATION HAS BEGUN! (Photo)

    Looking good Gary. I replaced the headliner in my 54. Not an easy task. I imaging after completing a few it gets easier. I'm not willing to find out though.

    Part of the enjoyment if not all of it meticlus care in restoring or repairing these cars. The process for some the enjoyment. For some, once you get going you can't stop.
  7. 55 Buick cover

    I found a picture of my bed sheet cover. End to end. Sewing machine. Completed in seconds.
  8. 55 Buick cover

    What I did was purchase two king sized sheets(very soft material) and sewed them end to end with a sewing machine. Inexpensive. Works great.
  9. My "new" 1941 Buick Roadmaster 71

    There are some cars that skirts just give it the right look. Seeing Matt Harwood's post above with the skirts..... this Buick is one that needs the skirts to complete a look that one will not find elsewhere. My goodness what a beautiful Buick!
  10. 56 Rochester 4GC: Trouble from the Start

    This is a good write up for things to check: http://www.thecarburetorshop.com/Troubleshooting.htm If I'm not mistaken, the manual states that while in drive the idle should be low enough that the transmission converter should not move the car forward. Anyone please correct me if I'm wrong. Now, as these engines get older and all the fiddling done over the years the idle has more than likely been set higher to smooth out the engine and compensate for other worn parts, etc. With that in mind and reading the write up in the link above, the throttle plates are not where they need to be any longer. Note in the write up the throttle plate position.
  11. 56 Rochester 4GC: Trouble from the Start

    I have read other forums that confirm the lead will fall out.
  12. My "new" 1941 Buick Roadmaster 71

    Nice Buick. I agree, the proper hubcaps for the year of manufacture make the car. Plus a set of bias ply. For me, that really completes the look. Enjoy!
  13. Turning Back Time Car Show

    Fine examples! I wish many would keep the Buick factory rally wheels on their GS models. I have not seen an after market wheel I like with exception of one. Older 80's Keystone on a 73 El Camino.
  14. Do you take your car(s) to car shows?

    I attend shows for a few reasons: 1. Get out of the house. 2. Enjoy the day with my friends with similar interests. 3. Attend shows for a good cause. 4. Share the car with people who are interested If the shows have trophies, then great if my car receives the nod. If not, no problem. However, if I did a complete nut and bolt restoration to a T, then concourse for sure. I would hope the car would receive the nod and accolades. That is what I worked towards as many have. But, I'm not to that point in my life. Once retired, we will see.
