  1. Ok, now THAT I would have a fear of. "ok the transmission's all set, but the customer said his spare tire carrier wasn't bent when he came in"
  2. 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.
  3. Great (mileage) moment to capture! Happy Anniversary! ☺️
  4. 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.
  5. It's very inspiring to see progress being made. Beautiful outside pictures Hugh!
  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. 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!
  8. I've done 1 local shop, and 2 kits. Local shop is difficult when the car isn't running or registered and there is no trailer available.
  9. Try Waldron Exhaust http://waldronexhaust.com/cart/index.php?main_page=index&cPath=61_31_98
  10. Beautiful work Gary! Your car is so awesome, I did not want to criticize, but I'm glad you moved the cut off master switch and hid it. The engine compartment seemed perfect and the switch detracted from it, in my opinion. And as you said, popping the hood to flip the switch every time can be a drag. I added a similar electric pump to my garden tractor because in the winter when I use it to clear snow after sitting for weeks at a time, the carb was dry. I found that fuel would not flow freely through the pump, but I didn't try to push it through the original vacuum p
  11. A volt meter, directly on the battery, can reveal a lot. Battery voltage before starting, at idle, at high idle, with lights on, and compare to what the dash gauge indicates.
  12. I'm not familiar with your vintage of Buick, I see one line on either side of zero, I assume with a generator max on the gauge is 20 amps in either direction? My 27 generator is always putting out something even at low idle, but due to the ignition and electric fuel pump, it can be a discharge of a few amps. At fast idle or over the road with a hot generator, I'm charging about 9 amps. Cold generator, over 15 amps. Under any condition, my amp gauge is never maxed out either charge or discharge. It looks like your gauge is close to pinned o
  13. Yes, fill to edge of filler hole.
  14. I'm happy the simplest solution was successful!
