  2. I would like to know more about the buckeye jack company and the jacks they supplied to auto companies. I would also like sources for catalogs (reprints would be OK) or clubs who collect these types of tools for automobiles. THANKS!
  3. I happen to own the unrestored 23 Buick model 54 on display at Hershey a year ago.............the top on the 54 lays on the rear top rack bars, mounted by slotted dome screws to the rear deck. A lether strap then holds the top down to the deck to prevent blowing in the wind. The body on my car has two plugs mounted into the body were there was no mount installed. If you would like pictures, please email me at vintagemotorcar@aol.com and I would be happy to supply some.

  7. Wanted: left and right outside door handles for a 1937 Packard 120-C conv, in NOS or nice shape for a show car. Also needed a pair of Packard driving lights for the same car. Paul Rose 304-821-1326 vintagemotorcar@aol.com
  8. Sounds to me your running out of gas or advance during high revs. Check for vacuum advance operation and vacuum leak at vacuum advance unit. Also check for clogged high speed fuel jet in carb. I also agree, check for free flowing exhaust, I have seen muffler baffles come loose and obstruct muffler out let. This can not be seen with out removing muffler but can be tested by removing muffler and test driving car. Good luck!
  9. I happen to be the care giver for GreenSixteen's V16 Marmon. I only say its a awesome Automobile, elegant yet understated. I has many fine details throughout out the entire automobile that discerning eyes see and appreciate. My opinion is there are cars and there are automobiles, the Marmon V16 is definitely an automobile.
  10. I have a 23 Buick model ffice:smarttags" <?xml:namespace prefix = st1 ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com</st1:date>23-6-54 and would like to know more about the spare tire lock. I believe an Oakes lock. The tire bracket has a hole in the center with a recessed bolt and a cast housing. I have seen another early Buick with an Oakes lock, is this correct for a model <st1:date Month="6" Day="23" Year="1954">6-23-54</st1:date>? The Buick parts book does not address this part. <O:p</O:p Any help would be greatly appreciated.

  12. Working on the 23 Buick carburetor today and removed the cork float. I realize it won’t be long before the float is stripped of it’s shellac coating with the fuel of today. Is there a good reliable coating available to coat the float with and where would one find it?
  13. Yes, mine are the type with the rolled ends and round head screw going through one side into the other (there must be threaded rod inside the opposite side).
  14. I have just recently purchased a 1923 Buick in nearly all original condition. I was stored inside for the last 40 or so years. Along the way, three of the four hose clamps have been changed out when the upper and lower radiator hoses were replace some years ago. I don’t want new ones! Old and crusty will fit the bill. Thanks.
