    Norm You can still work around a few missing body pieces up to a point. A good place to get a reference point from the rear tub for initial sill layout is the inside step of the door jamb on a complete car. A trammel can reach into this crevice, locked into position, then removed for easy straight line measurement. see photo #1 I made a wall chart with all door opening dimensions, and often re-check them again after some wood part has been disassembled. Sheetmetal Lower door sills will provide the correct spacing for door openings, so if these are missing you will need to get these dimensions from another car and make some temporary spacer to maintain proper distances. (photo #2, red arrow) These can be replicated by a sheetmetal shop. As you progress, there is a constant need to disassemble something, trim a little off here or there, then reassemble, and having a solid spacer in place helps everything go back together in its proper place. Also mark centerlines on the cross sills or other temporary cross pieces to help get things lined up correctly. Another clue to help get parts located are the 4 steel brackets with body to frame bolts. The forward pair are attached to the cowl firewall, rear pair are just behind the rear door. Transfer the frame to body bolt spacing to your work surface and use that to assist in spacing cowl & tub to each other. The cowl firewall to frame brackets are missing on my car. I transferred the rear body bolt spacing from the frame to the cross sill, bolted the 2 rear brackets to the sill (photo #3, bolts circled in red) which is the only reference point to frame in forward/aft direction that was available. I set the partial sill assembly on the frame to align and transfer the remainder of body to frame bolt holes. Then I aligned the rear tub door opening about 1/2" forward of the steel bracket. (photo #4, yellow arrows). There are about 5 tabs which must be wrapped over the curved wood piece, and 1/2" seems just about right. The sheetmetal lower door sills and center pillar provided the spacing from rear door opening to the cowl. After the rear sill extensions were attached, I put the full sill assembly back on the frame to get rear sills aligned and transfer the rear body to frame bolt holes. photo #5 Kevin

    Norm I am currently working on wood pattern for my 25-45. First photo shows progress I have made so far. Using dimensions taken at the upper & lower door openings from another 25-45, I made wood supports to hold the sheetmetal in place in order to trace the lower footprint for the sills. Once I get all the wood properly fitted using softwood, then I will use it as pattern and remake everything from hardwood. kevin

    25 Buick oil leak

    I installed a modern oil shaft seal in place of the felt behind the front pulley. These are typically available in metric sizes. Measure and convert dimensions to closest mm, then search for AVX oil seal OD x ID x thick. Kevin

    Body wood pattern for 25-45 touring

    Windshield frame is now "rightside out", and some of the bends straightened out. That lower frame looks like it was taken off a car when it was still nearly new, and hung up inside someplace dry. It has no rust, almost all the original paint is still there, just scuffed up, shiny on the inside facing surfaces, a little faded on outside. Door hinge pins had varying amounts of wear, which was not helping with door to body alignment, so I installed new pins on every hinge. The Door leveler pads located in the jamb were completely worn thru on the lower side from the constant weight of sagging doors rubbing against them, probably from driving on rough unpaved roads back in the day. I made a bending form by grinding a piece of scrap steel plate until it would just fit inside one of the unworn upper pads. A 1 x 1-3/4 blank piece of sheetmetal with corners trimmed could then be clamped against the bending form in the bench vise, each edge bent over the form with a hammer. The final inside radius was formed by hammering with a blunted cold chisel. The only excess remained on the ends, which was trimmed using snips. The new pads fit over the rubber just like the original, and should last for another 93 years or so. Kevin

    Fred Gear Timing marks don't line up when the flywheel timing mark is visible in the window. They are off by 2 teeth. see Plate No 26 in the maintenance book. Below photo of my timing gears was taken when flywheel mark was visible in the window, but gear marks not quite lined up yet. I added a pencil mark to the midpoint on the fiber gear, which is why the dimple is 180 degrees away. Kevin
