  1. Thank you dibarlaw, Rooster and Robert Engle for your helpful responses! I do think I'll try Robert's removal procedure. By the way, the oil pump on the '34 is driven by the camshaft. I think that may be common from 1931 - 35. The distributor and water pump are driven by the generator gear. I don't want to remove the camshaft if I don't have to. Thank you for all responding, Nevadavic
  2. I have a 1934 Series 50 with a knocking noise coming from the front timing gear area. The noise is in time with the camshaft. The engine is in the car now and I know I have to remove the hood and front end, generator, water pump, radiator, front motor mount, timing cover and pan to gain access. My question is, what is the best procedure to remove the existing fiber timing gear? Do I need to use a puller, if so, what kind is necessary? I do have an aluminum timing gear to replace the existing one. What torque I should use on the new one? I think this procedure may
  3. I have a 1934 Buick Series 50 sedan that has a noise coming from the timing gear housing. The single knocking noise is only apparent at idle (400 RPM) after warm-up at the front of the engine. If I increase speed off idle the noise is much less. Using my Harbor Freight stethoscope, the noise is most apparent at the timing gear case at the generator attachment bolts and the coil bolts. At first, I thought the noise might be a rod or the torsion balancer, but I even removed the torsion balancer to eliminate the problem. I figure the cam timing gear needs replacement since the generator and
  4. Thanks Robert for your help ...and your comment JFranklin. On closer inspection, it seems the clamps are a little loose as seen in the attachment above. It looks like once the two halves are removed the two bolts will be available to tighten. Anyway, I hope so! Nevadavic
  5. There was a noise coming from the front of the engine on my ’34 Buick Series 50. I used a stethoscope and found it most loud at the lower front of the engine at low idle. If I accelerated the engine above idle the noise would disappear. The car has insert rods and mains and that doesn’t seem to be the issue; no rod noise at acceleration. I took of the pan and started investigating to try to identify the problem. I noticed that the torsion balancer seems to be loose. I can wiggle it fore and aft and it makes a clicking sound. The outer shell of the balancer seems to be sligh

  10. I have a 1934 Buick Series 57 with modified rod bearings. I would like to buy a new set of the insert rod bearings for my car. I pulled one of the rod caps off and found the following information on the bearing: CLEVITE 77 B-1 (on one end and) 3/00 .020 CB-90P ( on the other.) See the photos. ---------- Lester Harris has the insert bearings I'm looking for --------- Thanks in advance for your help! Vic

I know ‘Clevite’ is the manufacturer and .020 is probably the undersize for the bearing but I’m not sure about all the other information. I would like to buy a full set of these rod bearings. Can someone point me in the right direction so I can purchase a set
