  1. These dimple valve covers are NOS and have never been installed on an engine. I have looked for a pair of these for a long time but am faced with a critical issue at the moment that requires the liquidation of some of my collectables. I will ship these and insure them in the lower 48 states for $750. You will not find a nicer pair. If additional pics are required by any interested party just pm me with the request. I take Paypal and/or USPS money orders.

These are all in their original boxes. $7.00 each + the postage. PM me with any questions. I do take paypal other wise USPS money orders.
  8. I have a 37 large case tranny apart and am in need of a .065-.070 steel thrust washer for the rear of the cluster gear in order to set the end play correctly. Other than Northwest Transmission in Ohio are there any other sources for these vintage parts?
  9. UPDATE finally got the Buick back in the shop. As it turned out the insulator for the lower control rod to the selector finger was worn out allowing just enough slop that it would interfere with 1st/R selection. The insulator sets on top of the steering mast right next to the engine. When heated by the engine it became softer providing just enough extra slop to interfere with proper gear selection. Replaced the rubber insulator with a 50 cent bushing and away she drove! Thanks for all the input fellas. Pretty basic simple fix. The owner was tickled to say the least.
  10. Good point on the adjustment Critter. I am hoping that it will be that simple of a fix. Wondering if any member has a shop manual for the 40 Century that show the detail of the shift linkages. This unit has been out of the car before and it may not have been reinstalled correctly with respect to the linkages/tension spring setup. Can someone attach a picture of this and the adjustment procedures?
  11. Don, I am familiar with the two trannies from past rebuilds. However, I was a little amazed at the size of the inspection hole in the floor of that Buick pic😀
  12. Thanks for the pics. That is a lot bigger than I had expected. I can see why it is easier with the seat out.
  13. Thanks Dave for the heads up. The owner took the car back last night so I did not accomplish much this morning. We are scheduling him back soon and then we will take a look. I will update this at that time. Also, I had thought this was a sedan but Bruce tells me that it is a convertible.
  14. All good points fellas and I thank you for the quick response. Fluid level is where it should be according to my friend who has looked at it yesterday. I am going up to the shop this morning to crawl under the Century and have a look at other things. As far as I know right now the owner has no history with the car having bought it just recently nor do I know if he has any ability to speak with the previous owner. There was a hint from my friend that this was an estate sale implying that the p/o may be deceased. I have had quite a few selector trannies apart before but can't quite understand this heat/friction issue locking out 1/R. Who knows at this point what someone has done with this tranny. Guess we get to play "Sherlock" here. Got to get a look inside first. Does anyone know if there is an inspection cover in the floor that can be removed to get access to the top of the tranny? We have to look at this when it is stuck and warm. If we take it out of the car it will be cool and working. Guess we could cut the floor but I hate to do that as this Buick is in great shape.
  15. A 40 Century came in to the shop today. New owner. Complaining that he can't use 1st/R after the car has been driven and is warmed up. 2nd and high work fine all the time. It appears that someone recently had the tranny out. So we drive it and it works fine. Go around the block a couple of times and then no low/reverse. Doesn't matter if the engine is running or not. If you wait for 20-30 minutes it releases and works fine. Am reluctant to pull the tranny as it will be cold and it will be working fine so I was hoping for some ideas on where to go with this first. We may open the floor up and remove the inspection cover (6 bolt tranny) to look in there when this is happening. Any ideas would be appreciated.
