  1. Closing in on 47 years of marriage, and she helps in the garage just as I do in the kitchen - when asked for a hand with something!
  2. Say dude, didn't mean to get your jockey shorts in a twist, just providing the original poster a supplier name who sells what he was asking about. Been using some of their products for eight or nine years, never had any issues - don't know you from Adam's house cat, whoever you are....!
  3. Bob's Automobilia has suspension parts: www.bobsautomobilia.com King Pin Set 1934-56 Most Models (See List) KB-343 $84.50 CODE:KB-343 Availability:In stock Quantity: +− ADD TO CART Add to wish list
  4. There are supposed to be dust caps on the top - on my '39, they are 1 inch diameter. Might measure the top opening to be sure that is the same on your '35 special. I think I found them at NAPA. Might be called Freeze Plugs or Expansion Plugs - domed shape that you insert and center punch to expand and seal the top opening.
  5. It isn't '38, they had either Stromberg or Marvels, and '39 used Carter WDO 419-S (which the pictured carb is not) or Stromberg AAV-26. So, either earlier than '38 or '40 or later. Maybe Carbking can chime in.
  6. It is thick, I used a thin wooden strip to “spoon” it in. Took some time, but I have no more leaks from using thinner material.
  7. Here is photo of what I use. Comes from Restoration Supply in Escondido, CA.
  8. Great time at the BCA National Meet - here is the view from our hotel window! Only a part of the show field, trees were blocking the remainder.
  9. Are you trailering or driving this beauty to the meet? And, when are you going up, we are driving the ‘39 up on Tuesday....?
  10. We drove the entire planned Route - 66 tour on Friday, and everything was fine. All the roads were clear, no flooding was apparent, and other than seeing a couple of trees down, we saw no signs of damage. Should be a great tour!
  11. Had the '39 out several times in the past week, and a couple of photos are attached. The Buick at Farmers Branch Historical Park parking lot, their sign, and the mileage on the speedo (not the swim suit) when i got home.
  12. Might try a small squirt of WD40 to see if it will unglue it.
  13. Sent you a Private Message concerning our AACA group. John V.
  14. Our local AACA group had our Spring Tune-Up Tour Sunday, 19 cars and 43 people. Met at Texas Motor Speedway and then toured back roads toward Decatur, where we stopped at the NRS (National Ropers Supply) for lunch and a brief business meeting. Logged about 130 miles on the '39 Buick.
