  1. This is from a few years ago. I convinced my wife to pose with our ‘41 Roadmaster. We were on a club trip to a local cider barn.
  2. Photo offered for discussion on Facebook. https://justacarguy.blogspot.com/2017/11/buick-aero-car-1920.html Submitted by Marc Hendrix Better photo shows sign on rear that appears to read “Aeroplane Propelled ” There is also another sign on the side of the car that is not clear. The photo seems to have also appeared in a Facebook group (within Facebook search for Yacht Club des Avions de la Route.) that discusses vehicles that mix technologies such as airplanes, cars,and boats. The text is in French and English. I suspect the car was powered by an airplane
  3. I struggled with that sensor on my ‘41. It took me days to remove after I broke the cable off (unintentionally). The full story along with a few other challenges is here: http://idlenot.com/ I eventually bought an NOS unit from a friend. It works great!
  4. Great photo! Old cars and snow go together well!
  5. This link goes to a discussion about engine turned panels. I believe both 1940 and 1941 are discussed. Also, Skip Boyer is restoring the panels too.
  6. Mark : My compliments on a great series of photos and explanations .Thanks for taking the time to share with us.
  7. Look at the Dec. 6, 2017 post by Neil at the following link. If the oil you mention is in the spark plug wells this could be the explanation.
  8. This link to a previous discussion may help you out:
  9. Nicely done, Robby. Did you use off the shelf paint and primer or a custom mix? Any details on what you used would be much appreciated.
  10. Has anyone heard about someone making their own inspection cover for the 1941 cars? I was also surprised when I went searching for it in my ‘41 Roadmaster and could not find it. Very disappointed . I suspect they may have been thinking about retaining the integrity of the glued down sound deadening material.
  11. I have a 1941 with a different gauge (charge + on right, discharge - on left) but I believe the response of any gauge should be the same upon startup and shutoff. I have a short video that shows how I think it should work: I also do not see a strong charge when revving the engine. I suspect that if the battery is already well charged revving should not show a charge surge because the voltage regulator prevents that. Also I agree there should be no electrical draw with the engine off and the ignition switch in the off position. The spark test you did
  12. I would be interested in finding a good source for black ribbed mat. I have a 1941 Roadmaster and my mat crumbled when I removed it to have new floorboards welded in. I understand there is a reproduction mat available fo my car but at $500 it’s just not worth it to me.
  13. The trimmer adjustment is from an access hole on the back of the radio. Try that first. As mentioned above your antenna should be fully extended. Be careful about the garage, though. Always put the antenna back down before entering the garage if you back in or when backing out if you usually drive in front first. (guess how I figured that one out!). Have all of the capacitors been replaced with modern ones? Have the values of the resistors been checked? Have all the tubes been removed and their pins cleaned (a little contact cleaner and several insert / remove / insert actions will h
  14. You are welcome. I added a photo to the last post to show my Fuel Delivery Apparatus. Ken Carr
