  1. Dave, Finally got to digging for the filter brackets. Is this what you’re looking for? Did you get the other print for the wiper?
  2. Dave, It looks like it is really coming along. Very nice. I do not have the right side linkage either but I have the print so I plan to fabricate a set one of these days. Let me know if you want a copy of it.
  3. Hi Dave, Don’t give up on me. I haven’t been very active the last few weeks. The flu hit me hard. I’ve been out to the garage a couple of times but didn’t find the right box for the brackets. I’ll find them. Chuck

    Pre-war Upholstering

    Trimacar, I know what you mean about the foam. One of the few things I THOUGHT didn’t need work on my 31 Buick was the upholstery. Well as soon as I took the bottom cushion out a cloud of black dust enveloped me. This is what 40 year old foam looks like. It’s that pile of black dust on the floor.
  5. Hi Dave, I went through the drawings but unfortunately I do not have the 2 you are looking for. I think I have a set of oil filter mounting brackets though. I'll be out in the garage tomorrow and I'll take a look. That is assuming the filter is the same for 60 and 90 series cars. I will look at my restoration pictures out in the garage too. I might have taken a picture of the wiper motor lever assembly before I put it back together. I'll Email you if I find anything. Chuck

    1931 Buick Firetruck????

    I came across this in an upcoming auction of old car pictures. It looks to me to be a modified Buick roadster or convertible. Kinda neat looking. Here is the auction if you are interested. https://www.auctionzip.com/auction-catalog/ORIGINAL-AUTOMOBILE-VEHICLE-PHOTOGRAPHS-MEMORABILIA-AUCTION_8HIJIU92ST/ Anyone out out there know anything about it?
  7. Tony, I recently finished my 31 90 series motor. These are the only pics I found that I took of the pickup. Chuck

    1933 Buick series 90

    Vic, I would replace the filter. Bob’s Automobilia sells a spin on conversion housing that looks like the original filter. 30 weight oil should be fine. Chuck

    SPIN ON FILTER HOUSINGS. E1/2 and L4-SOLD

    I am getting lots of interest in these filter housings. I will respond in the order I’ve received enquirers on them. I may have sold all the E1/2 housings, but that assumes everyone pays. I will update what I have left here as soon as I have contacted everyone that wants one and payment has been received. Thanks for your patience. Chuck
  10. I have 2 each of the E 1/2 and L4 oil filter housings made for spin in filters. These adapters look to be well engineered and manufactured. I believe the L-4 fits some Pierce Arrows, and the E-1/2 fits Studebaker and others.. These came from the estate of the late Burr Ridley in New York. He was selling these for hundreds each. The L4 uses a modified spin on filter and comes with 2 of them. The first filter is the E 1/2, the lower pictures are the L 4 I am selling them for $75 each plus shipping. PM me if interested.

    1928 standard starter selenoid

    You can still buy them at NAPA
  12. Winds wiped out any money I made this year and then some. The forecast was for 5 to 10 MPH overnight. I woke up to howling winds I’ll bet gusting over 25, and my heavily weighted canopy blew into my neighbors van putting a dent in his door and trashing the canopy frame. Sigh......
  13. We are bringing some brand new engineered oil filter adapters for the L-4 and E-1/2 filters. These adapters look to be well engineered and manufactured. We believe the L-4 fits some Pierce Arrows, and the E-1/2 fits Studebaker and others.. Also some new Packard hubcap reproductions, and some other Packard items.. All of these items from a New York estate. We will also have some NOS 1939 Buick parts and some 1931 and 1939 Buick OEM parts. Finally we will have a group of early automotive literature and some original and limited edition automotive art work. Green field GCA17

    Woodgraining kits - any feedback?

    I really liked their kit. Just one word - PRACTICE- Rolling the grain is definitely a learned art, but after a few tries I got the hang of it. Everything else is basic prep and paint. Good luck.

    Hawkeye Hawskinson Article

    That is a beautiful area. I got some hard to find Buick parts indirectly from the estate. I’m sorry I never met the man, I’m told he was quite the character.
