    1935 Buick Series 40 Clutch Replacement

    Just pull the rear end. To remove the motor you have to remove the entire front clip which will take a lot of frustrating hours to realign. Where are you in Aus?

    I JUST LOVE THE PICTURE OF THIS BUICK...........

    Can't make it out - definitely a different servicar to the one on the previous page which reads Forrest? Cadillac. By the number of British cars in this street scene I am guessing it may be in Canada. I see Austins, Vanguards, Vauxhall and even a dreaded Triumph Mayflower with a couple of continental makes as well - VW and maybe a Simca.

    Dynaflow question

    Comparing 1948 Series 70 and 1951 Series 50 Dynaflow transmissions. I believe the bell housing and torque converter are different ( 70 Series has larger oil capacity and I guess is larger overall ). Are the transmission case and internals back the same on each series? Could a 1950/51 50 Series transmission be mated with a 1948 70 Series Torque converter for fitment to a 1948 Series 70 Roadmaster? Any thoughts welcome.

    Yes, I'd need to be 20 years younger but this certainly seems like good value to me https://www.hemmings.com/classifieds/cars-for-sale/buick/unspecified/2150757.html

    Where is the rear brake hose on 56 Buick

    If it's like earlier models its really a middle brake hose - at the front of the torque tube.

    1950 Buick torque ball

    Sorry Ben - I thought the Dynaflow and Standard transmission Torque Ball Retainer were the same. Had a look at my parts book and they list many.

    1950 Buick torque ball

    Ben, I used one of these FATSCO Transmission retro fit torque ball retainer kits with the vulcanised seal to get away from the original copper sprayed metal on metal seal ( or in our case none seal!! ). https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/1948-1952-Buick-Dynaflow-Torque-Ball-Retainer-Seal-Kit/280446917124?hash=item414bf05a04:g:~rwAAOSw8GhZf1Wb or this one which is cheaper still and free postage in the USA https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/1948-1952-Dynaflow-Transmission-Rear-Stop-Leak-Seal-Kit-Torque-Ball-Retainer/310578977206?_trkparms=aid%3D222007%26algo%3DSIM.MBE%26ao%3D2%26asc%3D20140106155344%26meid%3D525b9cb23a3b4d4c9e9dab467e62c1e5%26pid%3D100005%26rk%3D2%26rkt%3D10%26mehot%3Dag%26sd%3D280446917124%26itm%3D310578977206&_trksid=p2047675.c100005.m1851
