  1. 1928 Buick Master transmission oil

    I have done the transmission on my 28 with 600W and it works slick! You will like it. 600 back then is equivalent to the 250 of todays oil.
  2. rear axle hub

    well bought the thread chaser and new puller from Lang's and got her apart. 2 spoke nuts off and rest loose. Tightened up and off and running
  3. deck parts

    Terry I'll have them cast to close as possible to original. I'm picky lol. Whatever I do with this car it will be to better it and bring closer to brand new looks and mechanical.

  6. deck parts

    I got it to 58mph.......which is "new" to us. only owned the car for 2 years. When bought it did well to go around town. Mine could be installed wrong. What you see is how I bought the car.
  7. deck parts

    Hi folks. A embarrassing moment happened to our 28. Got it running great and finally got up past highway speed first time since I bought it . That's where it happened. Right side of roof wasn't clamped properly to windshield post. Roof lifted up and left side held on for a couple seconds and then it unhooked and it slammed down in front of rumble seat are but folded up like I laid it there. Then during inspection I saw damage. Couple screws broke which is easy to fix but the 4 bars on the deck 3 broke from the roof impact. Sigh. I'm hoping someone has ideas on where to find 3 or 4 replacements I can buy.
  8. transmission fluid and fill

    got her running very decent. Discovered previous owner or before him installed a screw too long that block the main from delivering proper fueling. removed and retapped hole for larger and shorter screw. Much better. Walked up to 45mph with ease! Dad and I working off and on this car we have discovered a lot about it what is rightly done and wrongly done......too much wrong I can say. Just carburetor so far has had 3 major issues! Ignition was all wrong and bad. Goes to prove looks aren't what they always are. Getting this old girl mechanically sound is tough but satisfying .
  10. Transmission seal 1928

    I haven't gone in depth yet. The wrap is still. Its my next project after brake setting. Its not at input shaft but at the ball area. If I need to get a length of felt or rope seal I'll besure to get before tearing it down. I'm using a neighbors hoist so not wanting to tie it up. He has his own cars to work on. Don't want to ruin the free hoist usage that's forsure!

  13. Transmission seal 1928

  14. rear axle hub

    Hi guys. My wife's '17 rear spokes have loosened . so I got the hub puller out and can not move it. Turned it up so pullers split was up top and soaked for a week with a strong penetrant. Right side came off easily. It had shim steel in it t take up wear. Any further ideas on how to remove this stubborn hub? Thank you
