  1. Would you please post the info for the Charlotte meet - host hotel info ect, I believe I had it, but since there is nothing to do in upstate NY but clean and refile during the lock down, I guess it got tossed - thanks
  2. Looks great Mark, a mirror imagine of my 23-6-48, did you put a filter in your top return (that's why the two radiator hoses) and just a suggestion - what ever you use in your radiator I would open the water pump pet cock to ensure no air is left in the pump thus causing a cavitation - cant wait for warm weather up here in upstate NY
  3. I just called and was told that my reservation was cancelled on 4/3/2020 by the host hotel, waiting on an e-mail that they said they will send after I hung up
  4. My six cylinder 1923 series parts book shows timing gear set 159366 - includes crank, cam, water pump, gears and woodruff key Jim
  5. Mark - take it from one who did this - me - make sure that nipple lines up with the top of the pump, if it is not installed properly then you will only burn the gas in the canister, there wont be any suction - I too used cork gaskets with a little bit of sealer Jim
  6. Andy - the thread that Brian and Terry are talking about was very helpful ,(Hubert's) as I redid my 23 water pump this last August, my problem was with my impellor and a strange coating of a latex material, removed it, sand blasted and coated it with JB weld - works like original now. I used glands from Bob's Auto as packing material. From reading your original post, it sounds like your shaft is scoured and is chewing up the packing - just my two cents but try using emery cloth to clean both sides of the shaft on both sides of the pump, then repack tighten but not over tight as you need a little leakage to lubricate before removing the whole unit. Jim
  7. I have a 23-6-48 Buick and the parts catalog I have shows parts for the 23 series six cylinders, I show a valve lifter roller #37818, as too other years I don't know - sorry
  8. We had it stripped of old black/deep deep burgundy almost ten years ago and had it stained black
  9. That is the part, just curious, it does make the wires lay side by side and neater, thanks Larry for replying!
  10. Dad and I visited his shop several years ago, we didn't buy a pre made set, instead bought the pieces parts from him and made our own, if I'm not mistaken our center wire for our 23 was a different thickness as Larry states, have had no issue with them. Real nice fellow and very helpful. Terry - the end caps snap on top of the plugs and fit snug. Larry - just a question - do you have a small piece of metal that holds the wires under the cover that secures them? Hope everyone is doing well!
  11. When you live in the northeast and don't have a heated garage for your cars you search the internet and help fellow enthusiast - it looks like you have a 1922 Marvel model H carburetor
  12. Happy Holidays - I have a 65 Custom Sport Riv and I replaced my line with a basic air line from NAPA, it needs to be a snug fit on both ends - the line worked for me
  13. This is my 23-6-48 Marvel carb - Happy Holidays
