    Static Collector - Do these actually do anything?

    I seem to remember reading they reduced pitting in the bearings from the aforementioned sparking. Or am I dreaming again? Ben

    1953 Buick Special drivetrain change

    Do you have a Dynaflow? Buick used Dynaflow through 1960, I believe. I have never done a swap. have heard the Buick 350 is a heck of an engine. Should be a fairly easy swap, as swaps go. The "Nailheads" work well. Pictures? Ben

    In-line blocks need a home

    The Buick engine is , I believe, a 263 CI. Cannot make out the first digit in the engine number. Ben

    matched torque tube and differential carrier

    The " flanged external tube " is the torque tube. I swapped out the 4.10 in my '50 for a 3.34 from a '55. I used the original torque tube from the '50. I bolted it to the carrier from the '55. The pilot shaft [drive shaft] I seperated from the pinion gear shaft. Noy a jhob for the faint hearted. Instructions on old-tank's web site. Been seven years and 15,000 + miles. I honestly can see no problem. Like Matt, not sure what Buick was afraid of. Ben

    prelubers

    Well, lets see. Most folks in the hobby drive less than 2000 miles per year. Most engines , with today's oil and new parts will go 100,000 miles. So, 50 years. Saving half the wear extends to 150,000 miles, or 75 years. Afraid I will not see that.. Believe I will pass. Ben
