  1. Hey everyone. I'm selling some surplus from my restoration. I'm selling an Arvin Car Radio Model 520. The one that is encased along with tuner, circuitry and speaker. It powers up, lights up and sound comes from speaker but I could not tune in stations. This being said I would change the capacitors to ceramic capacitors. But no smoke or funky smells. I am including the schematics, and its also a great unit to modernize with a hideaway radio. I have it on eBay. No reserve and a reasonable start bid. http://r.ebay.com/Hfbcfv Thanks!
  2. I don't its for a Marquette either. Those grooves on the top, don't match what my car has.
  3. Its that pesky pot metal material... Mike will make you a new set and you won't have to worry again!
  4. Thank you, I'll be also on the lookout for an 1928-1930 Olds F28 parking brake assembly. In restoring the car I found out the engine was a twin of said car. Thanks!
  5. My chrome lost my parking brake trigger, and its become a mess even for stopping when running the car ordinarily. I guess many circa 1930 GM parking levers may fit. Below is a picture of the car, pre restoration and you can see the handle trigger right there. http://i1142.photobucket.com/albums/n607/pistorman/1929%20Buick%20Marquette%20Model%2037/IMG_2816.jpg http://i1142.photobucket.com/albums/n607/pistorman/1929%20Buick%20Marquette%20Model%2037/IMG_2813.jpg Thanks!

  6. I was able to have my handles done by Mike Butters in Canada. Mike is an absolute professional and a gentleman. I recommend him for any of these jobs. He works with you from start to finish and the results were amazing!! If I ever run into any casting need I will surely have Mike redo any pot metal handles.
  7. Hi Jeff, I know this is an older thread, but did you ever fix this issue? I am having the same problem on my muncie 3 speed transmission of my 1929 Buick Marquette. Regards, Victor
  8. Hi Joe, well wow! Before you posted your response somehow I had read in the Internet that Mike Butters is the one to call so I just did that a few minutes past. I sent him pictures and I think I'll be sending him my business. Thanks again!
  9. Thanks Carl! I just sent him photos. I called Dennis at dennis@locknstitch.com where they do a lot of cast metal welding, he doesn't believe that they can do much if the handle is pot metal as I believe it is. Hopefully Rich will have a spare one to part with
  10. It just "broke" by itself in the shop.... restoration ghosts are out there. Anyone have a spare? 1929-1931 should fit. I wonder if it can be welded? recast in a foundry? Does anybody know who/where?
  11. Hi there, I have a 1929 Buick Marquette 37 (sedan 4 foor). Lost in time is the fuel level gauge in the dash. Does anyone have a spare around. I would think that any Buick gauge from 1929 through 1930 should fit. Let me know please. Thanks!
