    help diagnosing a '29 std powertrain problem

    I would guess that what you see is shim stock. If the axle wore down some because it was loose at one time, the taper would be too small for the wheel to be tightened onto the axle. The shim stock would move the wheel outboard so the nut would tighten the wheel to the axle. If you can post some pictures, I can confirm what you have or maybe there is something else that the rest of us can analyze. PS: I have heard of all kinds of material used as shim stock including beer cans. :-)

    1946 Super Disc Brake Conversion

    Sounds like you need to go on a bearing hunt to find a bearing that will work. Different bearings will change the dimensional fit and location of the inner and outer shoulders. Just IMO.

    There might have been a press kit for the Regal in '89 because the Regal was a new body style in '88. In GM lingo, the new "W" car platform. Only came in a two door. As a second year car, trying to get more coverage and sales.

    '18 Buick Clutch

    Four cylinder or six cylinder? Makes a difference. I think the four cylinder is still a cone clutch. I vote for leather only. Worked for 100 years, why upgrade, or maybe down grade in performance. Leather is the only thing that I have put on my vehicles and will continue to put on my vehicles.

    Not true on ebay. From what I have heard, the biggest complaint on ebay are the fees that they charge. It is a market place and is driven by supply & demand. The items in demand and available is constantly in flux and changes week to week and year to year. The economy also affects the transactional prices of items in the marketplace. One of the sellers that you might check with is fa_consigners . He does a lot of different literature and might be able to help you. Look him up on ebay.

    Tinker's 1917 D45 Christmas wish

    To get the 100 year Buick medallion you must bring your vehicle to a national meet according to the rules written by the board at the time of starting the program.

    Looks right that I was correct on the auto club. Whew. Sometimes I'm just lucky.

    Turning 1932 series 56 intake manifold upside down

    That can pose other issues.

    If I was guessing, it would be maybe an auto club medallion or parking pass because it has a bell in the middle. Just a guess.

    Serial number tag location needed for 1918 K-45

    It is possible, but I doubt it because of the cost of building a body and then removing it would not make sense. If anything, the car was probably converted by the first or second owner. To add a truck body to a 1915 Buick chassis at time of manufacture was $75.00. I would suspect that a car body cost a lot more.
