  1. I have been looking everywhere for the pot metal trim that goes around the gauges and has the light in the center of it. If anyone has one they want to sell or if you know where I could find one I would appreciate you contacting me.
  2. I am looking for the pot metal trim ring that goes around the gauges/dash of a 1929-20 Buick. If you have one and are willing to part with it please contact me. Tad
  3. Do you by any chance still have the 1929 Buick parts? If so I would like to but some of the ones i see in the pictures. Thank, Tad
  4. I am looking for a speedometer drive gear for a 1929 buick. It is the gear at the end of the speedometer cable the meshes with the work gear in the transmission. I have been told it has 22 angled teeth but since I have never seen one I am not sure. I would buy the entire speedometer cable if that is how I have to do it to get the gear.

  6. I am still hunting for the speedometer drive gear that meshes with the worm gear in transmission for my 29-20 Buick. It would probably be easier to find the proverbial needle in the hay stack. If anyone has any suggestions as to where I might look I would appreciate the help. Thanks, Tad
  7. I have a 29-20 Buick that I really need the drive gear for my speedometer. The gear at the end of the speedometer cable that connects to the worm gear in the transmission is what I need.
  8. I am looking for the drive gear for my 1929 Buick speedometer. I have all the parts to make the speedometer work except the drive gear that is on the end of the cable. I have been told that it has 22 teeth and is an angled gear. Not sure of those details. Any help would be appreciated. Tad
  9. I have been hunting everywhere for a 1929 Buick speedometer cable gear. I have found and bought the cable to transmission adapter but need the gear. I understand the the original adapters expanded due to the metal and they can almost never be removed without breaking so I bought one from Bob's, I would buy the entire cable assembly if someone did not want to sell just the gear. The car is a 29-20. A number of forum members have given advice and helped a newbie out but I have not yet found the gear.
  10. Thanks everyone for the good ideas. I have gone through the carburetor and cleaned a lot of crude out. Filed and reset the points. It seems to have solved the problem but I have not had the time to take it out on anything but residential streets yet. Will know this afternoon ass I plan to go out where I can get it up to speed. It looks like I am going to have to remove the gas tank, clean it out and use a sloshing compound as it is obviously rusty judging from the stuff the the filter and carb. Still trying to get my speedometer working. I found the cable and the speedometer head is working fine. Ordered the gear housing from Bob's and now looking for the drive gear. Anyone have a source for this scarce item? Again thank you for the help on the back firing problem. Tad
  11. My 29 Buick 6 cyl. standard has started backfiring and hesitating to the point of shutting down when running 50 +- on the road. Still haven't gotten the speedometer working although I did find the correct cable but not the drive gear. Anyone got a clue as to why the car would have started doing this. If it quits running after backfiring and very jerky hesitating I pull off the road wait a minute or less and it fires back up. It never does this when riding around town and 35 mph or so. I think it may be flooding out due to the float not working properly. I am still using the original fuel pump and do not have an electric booster on it. Any Ideas? If I need to rebuild the carb where do I find the serial number etc on it? I can barely read the work Zenith on the side of it so the numbers may be long gone. Thanks, Tad
  12. I am looking for the speedometer cable, transmission attachment part and cable drive gear for my 1928 Buick, If you find one in the parts please let me know. Thank you, Tad Prewitt
  13. Would you be willing to sell the speedometer cable and transmission attachment/gear drive? what shape is the speedo cable in ? rusted badly or kinked up? Thanks, Tad
  14. Thank you for the link. It was very helpful to actually see what the ends of the cable look like. Now I may be able to fab one or at least identify one if I can find an old one. Tad
