  1. I run also a 140 grade oil, with the best results.
  2. Not mine, but found it in german "small"-Ebay. https://www.ebay-kleinanzeigen.de/s-anzeige/armaturen-oldtimer-buick-1931/1634759719-223-7602?utm_source=sharesheet&utm_medium=social&utm_campaign=socialbuttons&utm_content=app_android If somebody is interested in, click on green field "Nachricht" and send a non difficult message. (The most people here understand English).
  3. Look at Bob's Automobilia... ,They sell them.
  4. If you will you decide to swap it,here my experiences : I had done it too on my '38. The old Frontplate will work fine on the 363,also the Flywheel (attention here,marking the location on the crank!,it will fit in all positions if you don't mark it). All Aggregates from the 248 will fit,(also my better looking small '38 Fuelpump), except the Waterpump,Thermostat housing and its tubes, that you need with the Engine. The 2 upper threads from the 263 sidemounts you must block with its srews, because they goes into crankcase,and starts otherwise to leak. May be you h
  5. Valk, Yes I don't like this modern and rugged style of the Carter ,the Choke mechanic, and for my fine tune important : the many available Jets ,levers and linkage like the classic clean looking prewar correct Stromberg. I had think about other pre war Carb models..,the Holley 81 too,but I've seen so many problems with all this Carbs that using vacuum Powervalves ,especially the risk for blowing a PV while a possible backfire. Bruce , I'm in the 7,5 to 8 comp ratio range with oem Wristpins and Rods.., not so high because I like it sounds smooth and nonde
  6. Looks like nearly a period correct Engine..,that's what I want..;-).. (Plug wires and coil are here on this pic the old ones)

Lifter switched over to mech. from a 248 3 speed Engine, complete Intake and Exhaust porting Job, mild cam,balanced Crankshaft and Rods, custom flywheel 3 kg lighter and balanced , boltcircle matched for a Dynaflow Crankshaft to fit to my 3 speed Box with a Cherokee 4.0 Clutch. Compound Carb Manifolds, dual 2,5" exhaust with smithys ,two Big 97Strombergs with bigger jets, Holley marine stainless Airfilter, 12 V Pertronix Ignition with lighter Weights in the Distributor ,Fl
  8. Her'e some Pics from my since 17 Years everlasting-project-vacation-race-fun-'38 Special Coupe 😉 :
  9. MAN !!! exactly this constellation was my dream car before I bought my '38 Buick Special Coupe 16 years ago and make it fast with a hopped up 263 engine. (Had read California Bill's speed manual and fall in love with this..,but its impossible here in Germany to get a 270 GMC Engine ). WM,a tip from me before you installing the Wheel cylinder, disassemble each one and put it together again with a special Grease for brake cylinder. A common problems are stuck/rusted pistons after one or two years,because they are completely dry out of the box. That's my experiences with all
  10. For sale, not mine, just founded. https://www.ebay-kleinanzeigen.de/s-anzeige/oldtimer-buick-8-9-kruemmer-baujahr-1931/1181520773-223-2061?utm_source=sharesheet&utm_medium=social&utm_campaign=socialbuttons&utm_content=app_android
  11. Many cars of my Customers here too have the green Wheel Switch. I put it in also ,in my shop if the 50 or 60 years old electric in the Cars looks " critical"... Important is before installing ,to disassemble it and lube it complete with Battery-Grease. Then they've no contact problems especially on the small point under the Wheel. Myself use one like this : https://www.walmart.com/ip/Heavy-RV-On-Off-Off-Trailer-Vehicles-Auto-Knife-Disconnect-24V-12V-Duty-Battery-Truck-Kill-6V-Post-Doctor-Switch-Shut-250-750-Top-Switch-Car-Cutoff-A/454957724 Looks more old st
  12. Yes, l think so too, allignment and also sealing.
  13. I would also check each cell of the Battery for its acid,/loading with a acid tester, all cells must have the same capacity.( loaded, or unloaded doesn't matter) If one Cell capacity is not like the other the cell begins to sulfating, it can makes problems like yours.
