  1. What is wrong with the backing plates you have?
  2.

  3. Not sure if these pictures will help with your decision. Appears to be an original used filter canister. However, painted over and that coat of paint coming off. Take a close look. It does appear to be a faded blue under the green paint. You be the judge. https://www.ebay.com/itm/264-322-364-Buick-Nailhead-Oil-Filter-Canister-Mount-Housing-53-54-55-56-57-58-/233114662675
  4. Based on the untouched filter canister on the 54 pictured, I would paint the filter the same color as the engine. I understand this is a 53 engine. However, what year was the NOS blue canister manufactured? Was it painted blue from the very first day it came from the canister plant or change colors down the road? Was this a replacement part found at the dealers and this particular part was painted blue? The blue canisters never seen the assembly line because those are painted green or whatever the engine color maybe? For me, with the sloppy masking of items like the distributor, carb(as on my 1960...7 years after your 1953 and still spraying paint all over the place ) and fuel pumps I don't see a pristine blue filter canister in the cards. I see a person masking, spraying and getting them out the door a quickly as possible. The canister included.
  5. Cute pit crew! The lifters and cam are broken in together. Not sure how far you plan to go with the rebuild. I can say I replaced the lifters on a 56 can that was already broken in with no issues. I guess the mic of the cylinders will dictate the best route on this rebuild. Thanks for sharing.
  6. My daughter has really taken off with embroidery!
  7. Wonder if the chassis with V8 is from another vehicle all together. Appears to have quite a bit of modifying. The steering column looks to be Chevy.
  8. Great looking Buick. Appears to have dual exhaust. Is the engine original or switched out?
  9. 60 degree plus weather this past weekend. Stretched the 54 and 60 for a few miles.
  10. I Quite possible there was an issue at break-in and the line was replaced at that time. No paint.
  11. Some nice photos of the Buick Flint Factory. Based on these pictures I'm still of mine the oil canister was painted. The fuel pump was not. https://www.hometownbuick.com/portfolio/buicks-busy-acres/
  12. I like the look of the stainless steel fuel lines as well. Shhhhh....don't tell anyone.
  13. Well, you came to the right place for advise and possible sale! There is one way to see if the Dynaflow is working. Start it, let warm to operating temp and check the dipstick. If she is at the full mark put it in D and see what she does! Post some pictures of the Invicta if you can.
