    Recommended differential oil

    My 40 Buick owners manual says to use 80/90. I use gl-4 as opposed to gl-5. Gl-5 may not be good for soft metal such as brass.
  4. Rodney, Yes that is a 40 Special. I do get a little impatient at times but this forum is fantastic and I use it all the time. Tom, That worked out well,antenna back in service. I did pumps,drive motors and refer equipment for 35 yrs. Always tinkered with cars but I seem to have gotten that car collector disease and there is always something that needs to be repaired. Thanks to all, Roger
  5. Thanks Tom, That looks like it will work. Can it be done by myself or should I wait for a helper? My helper just went to work, poor girl. Barney, The antenna was working just fine before it fell. Hopefully it still does, if not I will be in touch. Roger
  6. Well,looking at it all, there is only one way to get to it. Have to take the inner wheel cover out. Thanks for all your input. Many responses for 1st. gen Rivs, not so much for newer ones. Roger
  7. My antenna has fallen into the wheel well. How do I get to it? It does not look very easy. Thanks for any advice. Roger

    rear main seal

    Ben, Thanks for that website. Added it to my favorites list, very informative. That rear seal looks like a tough job. Think I will keep an eye on the leak and monitor it and if it gets worse I will try the repair. Meteor

    rear main seal

    Thanks Matt, I did not realize the 42 manual was more detailed. That is great I will check it out right away. The 40 manual does not have any info on the seal. I thought I would have to pull the trans. Thanks again for the help. Meteor

    rear main seal

    Thanks 39 Buick, That's a great site. I have the service and repair manual for my 1940 Buick. I was hoping to get a response from someone who has replaced the seal so I could get some advice and issues that may turn up.

    rear main seal

    What is the best way to replace the rear main seal on a 1940 special 248? The repair manual is not giving me much information. Thanks, Meteor

    1960s Lucus wiring question

    I've owned an MGTD for 15 yrs. Fuel pump and voltage regulator are the only items I've had to replace. I would change the condenser. Had that same problem with my 40 Buick.
