  1. Laws in different states vary I'm sure, but I was told when a car is completely restored and refurbished, it is acceptable for a restoration shop to set the speedometer to zero again, because the car is essentially new again.
  2. Great (mileage) moment to capture! Happy Anniversary! ☺️
  3. 1928 may be different, but for 1927 the top of the gauges has a shroud to direct the dash Guage lighting, and at the bottom there are just simple brackets to hold the gauges in place. Again for 1927, the starter pedal return springs on my cars in the housing on top of the transmission was rusted and broken, so I replaced the original spring with a stainless steel spring from McMaster Carr to prevent a repeat failure, since the spring does not show.
  4. It's very inspiring to see progress being made. Beautiful outside pictures Hugh!
  5. Terry, what is the source of the shift patten disc? Is that original? Everything looks great!
  6. We're the Buick engineers trying to regulate flow with those different vane designs, as in too much flow and the coolant doesn't have time to remove the engine heat, and too little flow and the engine runs hot?
  7. I don't have the answer. The quality of the videos determine their actual size. The fact that the two videos fit on a 8gb card doesn't necessarily mean the two videos total 8gb in size. The website will not allow you to upload a video or picture that is too large, so I say try uploading a video and see what happens! It will either work and upload, or it won't!
  8. Think of your computer / phone / iPad as being on the ground, and the internet being up in the sky somewhere (which is kinda true). Same reason when you backup your computer to The Cloud, it's "up" in the internet, somewhere. So you "up" load from your device to the internet, and "down" load from the internet to your device. Looking forward to the video of this drill in action! (To the computer guru's, yes I know the internet is actually servers on the ground somewhere, I just think of it as I described to keep it simple for my simple mind.)
  9. I keep my repainted parts on a table, under a sheet, ready to be reinstalled someday. Someday... Congratulations on your progress Terry!
  10. I wonder how Buick primed these engines originally?
  11. I think that drill would throw me over the fender 😂
  12. So if the body breaks away from the frame, I'm going for a ride without the chassis. I agree with driving carefully, heavily defensive, and assuming other drivers don't understand old cars at all, and no seat belts in my old cars. In any event, I hope everyone is safe and all accidents are avoided!
  13. That clutch looks amazing, the pictures are so important so someday you can look back and see how it all was, renewed, before starting its second service life. Best of luck tomorrow, looking forward to the pictures that follow.
  14. Does anyone use pump gas to clean anymore? I'm not condoning it, the fire and health hazard. But (I've heard) it's a great cleaner, if used with precautions. I don't like cleaning with kerosene for the same reason, seems like I'm removing one substance only to add a greasy other one.
