  1. No Pics handy but the one above shows well the keepers and springs for the pushrods. The Valves also have dual springs. an inner and an outer so you should have 36 springs. 12 soft ones for the pushrods, and 12 each of the stiff ones for the valves.
  2. Looking at the points, it looks like they are set too wide, Are they closing at all?
  3. Chevy didn't use rod inserts ( slipper) until 1953. It's easy here to use them on the earlier Chev engines as long as machine shop has a con rod machine. You would have to do size research to find what would work. Egge machine in California have engine parts.
  4. I think the Perlman would be correct on a 20. I looked at a 20 on the weekend and some had the name and some not, but they looked the same.
  5. Hmmm. Haven't seen one that says Buick up here yet. There may be some, just haven't seen them. Lots of interesting trivia here. Thanks everyone.
  6. Thanks for the replies everyone. I only have 1 baker wedge so guessing that wasn't it. I have a dozen pearlman but not a full set. Might be a good thing that you can only see one side of the car at a time. This was our family car and Dad had a parts car that I suspect was an E so i'm never sure what is original and what came from the E, Mostly the same tho. And yes. 30 x 3.5 clinchers.
  7. Taking apart parts cars and parts pieces I have 5 different types of rim wedges. Does anyone have an idea which might be the right ones for a D-35? Obviously the one with built in nut and the Baker aren't right. . I think they all work. Second: Have an odd hubcap. It is made of steel instead of aluminum and just says McLaughlin instead of McLaughlin Buick. It looks like it was once nickel plated. Anyone know what it came off.
  8. My D-35 liked 35 mph, could go to 45 in a pinch. Yours has a lower ratio, bigger tires, and a bit more modern engine so maybe 40 mph.
  9. Welcome to the forum. Yes Egge machine in Santa Fe springs is where I would start.
  10. Interesting...to me. I worked on touring car mostly. I knew the bottom sills were glued, and a few other spots but you have more glued pieces than I knew about.
  11. Interesting. We have a 29 Master sedan at the museum. ( Canadian). Wheels are not like that!.
  12. Newest one I've worked on is 27 and yes, there were a few glued parts and splices, but as I recall, mostly not.
  13. Be careful with the glue. Most of these joints were never glued, only screwed as the body has to be able to twist with the frame flex, however small.
