  1. Past hour
  2. Craig, Looks like the box is GMH, so likely a Holden part.
  3. Wife of 49 years knows the name of every tool and 95% of the parts. Washes the towels, cloth fender covers and anything else reusable. Keeps the floor swept, rest room cleaned and stocked on supplies and at 4' 10" and 81 pounds she can do many things with her whole body that I can barely fit an arm or leg into. How many helpers can sit upright on the floor pan and work with both hands on anything under the dash. Does very nice wood grain work in various grain patterns. Spots errors and gems at shows but doesn't comment till we're back home. Was a lot of work to put an automatic transmission, a-c, plus power assists in the old 37 Buick so she could drive it (with spacer blocks on the brake and gas pedal) but she is worth it. No kids so cars have been our "babies".
  4. Good Morning Everyone and thank you for the advice I was sort of emotionally involved in this vehicle BUT all your points make very valid sense, I am going to persue the market place again. I am also today doing some research on the requirements on importing but the first thing that I checked is a letter of authority from our DMV to import a vehicle the LOA will require the vehicle details incl engine and chassis numbers it is not 100% guaranteed I will get the LOA and it takes up to 120 days... So during this 120days the seller will have to wait on me to make sure I get the LOA before sale can be finalized so it makes it very difficult already I am going to get some other costs in this morning
  5. Like the deed to your house. It proves who the legal owner is, and thus who has the right to sell it. You don't want me selling either your car or house for you, without your knowledge, and keeping the money.
  6. Another unknown GM part I have, the part number on this one is 9939499. Any ideas?
  7. Does someone know what this GM part fits? the Part No. on the box says 2771594. I can't find any reference to this number.
  8. Today
  9. What is a title? Is it who it’s owned by? Or like a deed to it?
  10. By the look of things, Buick probably won't be around much longer anyways. Only 9000 units sold? That's actually really sad. I wish this crossover fad would die off, because its seeing a huge decline in sedan sales across the board, but... its what is selling right now.
  11. You refer to the "larger" series, but I'm assuming you understand that you are actually referring to the cars with the larger engine -- the Century, Roadmaster, and Limited. The Super is the larger-sized body with the smaller engine. As a happy Super owner, I would suggest that you might want to consider broadening your search. You might find that you would be just as happy with a Super. The interior trim of the Super is identical to the Roadmaster. The Limited (of course) is in a class by itself because of its larger wheelbase, and if you're set on a Limited, then you will be "limiting" yourself (pun intended) to a very small sample. The Century is what everyone wants because it was the first factory hot rod to come out of Detroit, but keep in mind that it actually has the smaller body and is not as spacious on the inside as a Super. PS: I agree with Mike that the Super currently offered by Specialty Sales in Pleasanton is grossly overpriced. If you're looking for a nice Super, you should be able to pick one up for a much more reasonable price.
  12. Larry, If Roy passes then I'll take them. Thanks, Raul
  13. On my original 322, the balancer had a hairline crack going down the inside. Make sure you inspect it if you plan to reuse. If you get a new one, you'll have to have it balanced with the crank and flywheel.
  14. Beemon

    56 Super

    I would really like to figure that mystery out one day with the old Rochester carbs. Everyone on the internet seems to rebuild them "wrong". It was really night and day when I put the WCFB on. 55 carbs are more plentiful than the 56 carb, maybe keep an ear out for one? I guarantee it will make your driving experience more pleasurable without that bog.
  15. Thanks for the info Bloo.. It`d be nice to find some new ones..
  16. Another nod to Ross. They made the pistons for m6 32’ Olds. Extremely good job. You can see them in the restoration thread of my 32’ Olds roadster. A company specializing in pistons for high compression, high revving, engines and been in business a long time probably has a good product. Their old engine line of pistons are made the same way.
  17. My (former) 1914 B-37 Touring had an amazingly smooth ride - not quite as smooth as our 123" wheelbase 1914 Hudson, but definately NOT bone-jarring. I agree with the above recommendations. Lube everything and assure that all joints flex - (including yours). You'll really enjoy it at 45+ mph - a thrill-a-minute performance!
  18. You could potentially find an old "Hydramatic" Dynaflow and swap tailshafts.
  19. That’s the only place I’m “blind”. At least that’s what I tell the wife, “I didn’t notice anything!”

    1930 cf fuse size

    The only way to find the problem is with a DC voltmeter. Go by one of the wiring diagrams posted above and work your way through the circuits. If you don't understand electricity, have someone who does help you. The old Dodge / Chrysler wiring diagrams are fairly simple and straight forward. There is not much that can go wrong with a clum switch, short of falling apart or filling with steering box grease.
  21. My wife is ten years younger than me and will help me when I need another set of hands (she only does light stuff though) or will sit in a big comfortable office chair I have in the garage and keep me company often reading a book or using her I pad. Often though she’s in the house as she loves to cook homemade meals, clean the house, and even hang out our clothes. She doesn’t spend much money on frivolous things and doesn’t complain when I buy tools or stuff for whatever vehicle I’m working on. She’s not big on sitting at car shows but this year very much enjoyed Hershey and the attention our 32’ Olds convertible got. It won its first junior and whenthey announced my name, she said to me it’s all been worth it. When we were walking the car corral earlier in the week she said “no more cars for a while” and I told her there was only one more car I wanted, a 61’ vette because I was born in 61’. She asked what one looked like and we found a 62’ that was blue with white coves. She stepped back from it, looked at me and said “I like it!”
  22. Can you give me a price on title and gauges and if you have transmission please
  23. I wonder if he uses the same ploy at strip clubs? 😉
  24. Y-JobFan

    Wheels

    It is the correct pattern and offset, they had them on an 87 LeSabre T-Type
  25. Jahns made a very low cost cast piston and quality forged pistons that were on the heavy side but what they made for years were forged piston blanks. With a piston blank, a lathe and a mill you can make one to any spec. Unless you can cam grind the piston it will be round which is a bit noisier but no problem. Gets better when warmed up. Back in the 60's we were doing offset crank pin grinding, experimenting with rod length, ring position, and dome design among other tricks to beat the competition so went through a lot of pistons (and other parts). Won some/lost some but gained even from the flops.
