  1. 1924 & 1925 Master brush adjustment can be made by spinning the linkage push rod while the linkage assembly is removed from the motor. This will allow for correct sequence of Overrunning clutch engagement to flywheel teeth just as the starter brush drops. Push rod is fully unscrewed exposing the threads in second photo below Kevin

  4. Alex Your Buick appears to be a 1924 model 44 Roadster, probably a 1970's era restoration based on the color scheme. The photos you attached of missing parts are correct, but it's the oil pan (not the crankcase) and oil pump. Also the distributer has broken off, leaving the bottom stem stuck inside the Starter Generator end casting, circled in below photo. The water pump might also have some rust thru areas. The oil pan was probably removed to investigate something, (low oil pressure, engine noises, or ?) so you should perform thorough check of bearing clearances, clean out oil passages, clean roller lifters, check timing gears. Old oil can harden and plug up the pressure oil feed system. Now we can narrow down the years of interchangeable parts. Oil pan: 1924-1925 Master. I do not know if 1926 will interchange. Oil Pump: 1924-1928 Master according to parts book. Distributer: 1922-1925 6 cylinder models. 1925 distributers were made from aluminum which often cracked, swelled and broke apart. Complete motors do occasionally come up for sale on this site, and tips for working on these parts can be found on Buick - Pre War Technical section. There are several of us that have recently completed engine work on 1925 Buicks and have posted a lot of helpful information that should help you get started. Kevin

  8. I think you should have masked off the spokes where they meet at the hub before painting. When these wood wheels were first made, the spokes were dry assembled together and pressed into the rim, then a hole bored thru the center to fit the hub with little or no clearance. This allows the weight of the car to be transferred from the hub thru the end of spoke and down to the rim. Applying primer and paint could add maybe .005 thickness. Since spokes are assembled together into a ring, multiply 12 spokes x 2 faces each x .005 resulting in .120 growth of the circumference of the bore. Divide by 3.14 to get approx .040 growth in the bore diameter. This means you would have a very difficult time getting the bolt holes to line up when you reassemble the wheel, and since the center bore no longer makes contact with the hub, the car weight will be transferred to the bolts which will result in wheel failure when you are driving the car ! This would be a good time to get some paint stripper, a sharp scraper, and remove all the paint where the spokes meet at the hub. I have remnants of wood spokes that were protected behind the hub, so added photos showing how paint applied to spoke contact surfaces will affect the bore size. This is exaggerated of course.

  11. Buick introduced front brakes in 1924, so 1920 wheels would have no front brake drums. Rear wheel bearings changed going into the 1926 model year, so 1925 and earlier wheels will not fit on 1926 and later axle. 1920 thru 1925 used double row rear wheel bearing (900310 per parts book, New Departure p/n 5310). width = 44mm 1926 thru 1928 used single row rear wheel bearing (901310 per parts book, New Departure 1310). width = 27mm below photos show 5310 and 1310 bearings on a 1928 rear axle tube. There is no possibility of installing the nut on the axle tube with the earlier double row bearing. rear hub is not shown. Kevin

  13. Dave are you certain that 4 & 6 cyl have different contact arms ? The first 3 photos below are of a distributer with 4 cylinder shaft and upper plates which should be identical to yours. First photo is new NOS contact arm. points close parallel. Second photo is a used contact arm worn about halfway. points still close parallel. Third photo is a contact arm completely worn down. when closed, points only contact on one edge. Fourth photo is these 3 contact arms pinned on a drill rod. Length is identical, the part contacting the cam is bent slightly different. Final photo is the NOS contact arm sitting over the contact arm of my 6 cylinder 25-45, and these are also identical. Is it possible that somebody in the distant past has bent the fixed point mount to help improve a worn down moving contact arm ? Kevin
