  1. How do I find your threads on the led lighting?
  2. So put on electric pump with regulator near tank. use a switch to run it temporarily to prime the carb. I assume this electric pump is pushing fuel thru the manual pump without cranking the engine? and after start up I shut electric pump off and let manual pump suck fuel thru the electric pump? The electric pump had a warning that running it in conjunction with a manual pump can fill the oil pan with fuel? any thoughts on that?? Thanks again guys.
  3. Ok , so do you let your electric pump push fuel thru the manual pump? and after start up you shut electric pump off and let manual pump suck thru electric pump that is not on?
  4. Hello guys, Its been a long time since I have been on here.. I am considering putting an electric fuel pump on my 31-57.. Has anyone done this? the reason I wish to do this is because it is often 1-2 months at times between drives. It takes forever cranking the engine to get the fuel pumped up to the carb with the manual fuel pump. I think electric, Although not original would pressure up and fill the carb bowl quickly allowing for faster start and less wear on starter and battery. I have a 6 v fuel pump. Any ideas on what the pressure should be set at on the early buicks? Also does anyone have any ideas on turn signal kits for the early buicks.? I often take my wife and 2 yr old daughter for drives in the ol girl and would feel a lot safer with led turn and stop lights up front and out back. Any input is greatly appreciated. Thanks to all.
  5. can anyone tell me what the normal range amp gauge readings on a 31-57 while running down the hyw without lights on. and what it should be with lights on. and how do I make adjustments?. Going down the hwy at 45 mph. It is reading about 13. turn headlights on and it drops to zero. Honk horn at it drops to zero
  6. I have a 1931 - 32 buick stone guard for sale. It is too big for my 31-57. asking $375 + shipping
  7. it does not have emblems on bottom anymore.
  8. I have a stone guard in good condition for a 1931 buick for sale. it is too big for my 31-57 so I assume it fits the bigger cars. If interested message me and ill send pics and we can work on price f
  9. does aluminum and steel together cause some kind of corrosive reaction? if so, would it be an idea to use corrosion inhibitor on this project when putting in the helicoil?
  10. also I have some difficulty uploading pictures on here. so if you would like pictures of the stone guard message me your cell number and I will send you pictures. I think the stone guards really set a car off.
  11. I believe I have a stone guard that goes in front of the radiator shutters if any of you are interested. it probably needs replated but is not all rusted up. I have a 31-57 and it is too big for my car. I would just like my $ back on it.
  12. I am the one that bought pete phillips.. My car is a 50 series and in pics it looked like the right one but it is not. it has u shaped brackets on top that fit under the radiator shell. and I believe it uses the crank cover to hold the bottom end. I have found a guy who can build me a stone guard for my car. He will use the one I got from pete as a guide and my radiator shell to fit it. The one I got from Pete looks to probably be period correct. as it is flat metal strips that make the mesh instead of round wire mesh. It will be for sale when I get a new one built.
