  1. I was puzzled by the same situation today trying to get the windshield wiper burr removed. Its really a splined shaft on the outside and a press fit on the inside to the shaft. There must be a burr on the edge of the shaft that holds the spline adapter in place. Its misleading how to disassembled because there is an 8-32 internal thread also. I found the disassembly process described in the 1952 manual and the special tool J 2682 tool intended for this purpose ... also came across this post. I happened to have a sink faucet puller tool from a previous job that worked perfect and didn't need the J 2682 tool. The tip was small enough to insert into the 8-32 internal thread. You can get them for $10 at Home Depot. Here are some photos. They both came right off.
  2. I saw this 1951 Buick Roadmaster not far from my house in upstate NY. It had a for sale sign and looked like it had been there a while. For Sale sign had the phone #518-588-0004. I didn't enquire about it cause it doesn't seem to have parts that I can use restoring my 1953 Super. Figured there might be someone looking for something like this.
  3. Bill, Your build and dedication is nothing short of remarkable. I'm also the proud new owner of a 1953 Buick Super Convertible currently in rough shape (see included photo). I'm at the beginning of my journey ... a lot of learning and work to be done in the years ahead. I found your thread and will use it for future inspiration. Joe
