  1. 1915 C-25 rear axle / diff disassembly

    Take notes on the ring & pinion locations prior to disassembly. My 13 Buick had castellated nuts that adjust the location of the ring gear. I counted the turns on the nuts so I could restore the original settings.
  2. WTB 60s 70s car

    How about this:
  3. Heirloom Tools

    I have a foot locker full of antique wood planes that were my wife's great grandfather's. And several hand forged hammers and blacksmith tongs, ladles, etc. that were my great grandfather's.
  4. 1931 Buick rear hub removal.

    Get George to make one for you. Eventually you will need it again...
  5. I.D. this brass-era Buick?

    I also advised Pete: "keep in mind that export chassis were shipped overseas for others to build their own bodies. Therefore virtually any export Buick could be significantly different that what was built in the USA".
  6. Is a Speedster eligible for Reliability tour?

    Not everybody participates in car shows or judged events. Club rules specific to tours are obviously needed. Unfortunately, several clubs do not post their rules or membership requirements on their websites. I know that the HCCA is often perceived as only a brass era (pre-1916 only) club. HCCA National tours are all pre-1916, but the HCCA also includes a nickel era registry and includes members with pre-1942 vehicles. And, local chapters can establish age requirements for regional tours.
  7. I have that exact set, but you will have to tempt me with an offer...
  8. Is a Speedster eligible for Reliability tour?

    Although many pre-1916 vehicles with modified drive trains have participated in reliability Tours in past years, I believe the intent is to remain in keeping with the original tours. To me, that means the vehicle should have an original drive train to include engine, ignition, transmission, & rear end as manufactured prior to 1916. Therefore, a speedster body style really should not matter. This is from the AACA site: AACA Reliability Tour The Reliability Tour is held during even-numbered years and is for brass era vehicles manufactured in 1915 and earlier. All AACA recognized vehicles of that vintage are permitted to take part. The Reliability Tour was designed many years ago to test the reliability of earlier vehicles.
  9. 1930 Buick Coupe St Louis craigslist

    If you can't see if it has a round bar between the frame horns, larger series usually have plated headlight and sidelight buckets.
  10. Fuel Pump application help

    1929 Buicks used the push rod style pump.
  11. Mechanical brake adjustment front to rear

    Gary, don't feel bad. Just sell that Ford and get another Buick! Wouldn't you really rather have more than one?
  12. Mechanical brake adjustment front to rear

    No Grimy, I don't agree with Gary W.
  13. Fuel Pump application help

    It might be easier to determine if it will work for the vehicle you bought it for...
  14. Mechanical brake adjustment front to rear

    In my experience, this often overlooked. Sorry to disagree with Gary, but I agree that the levers must be perpendicular to the travel of the rods for maximum leverage. The manual will provide lots of good information about brake to drum clearances but the manual instructions are often not as useful as practical application. I suggest you make sure all the rods and levers are adjusted to the best of your ability and find a dirt or gravel road for testing. Have someone watch as you accelerate and brake hard when you are about to shift into 2nd gear and do as Tinindian instructed:
  15. 1929 Came Home Today

    Terry, Those must be Canadian "All Season Tires".
