  1. Just my three cents worth of info, check to make sure (if you had the top off of the vacuum tank) that your gasket matches up with all eight screw holes and the ninth hole is not plugged - the extra ninth hole in the gasket fits over the breather tube protruding up from the tank and must be clear of debris, other thought is check your float in the vacuum tank - it cant have any holes or it will fill with gas and not work properly, make sure the float guide is seated in the center of the flapper valve at the bottom of the tank Jim 23-6-48 Opera Coupe
  2. Good afternoon all - doing some upkeep on a rainy day - what is the length of the fan adjustment spring on my 23-6-48 Buick? The one on now appears to be sprung and ends are out of shape, also where might I find the spring with the appropriate length and gauge - Thanks all
  3. I dont have the original gun but do have the flexible hose and pin type fitting, also have a stand alone grease gun
  4. Run a good grade fuel stabilizer, battery out and inside, fuel tank full, a few drops of mystery oil in cylinder heads and crank over, irish spring soap, dryer sheets and moth balls, put up on jacks or over inflate tires and roll the car once a week (no flat spots) and get out of house once a week and check on things and count the days till spring
  5. Took my grand's for a ride yesterday - 23-6-48!!

  7. Forgot to mention it in the earlier post, Hugh is correct there are three small ports in the valve cover to add oil to lubricate, lookin at your pic - I cant tell if you need a drivers side window crank, may have one
  8. Have dealt with RJL in Penfield NY for supplies, I chose to purchase the wires and ends separately and fit them to my 23-6-48 myself, great guy to deal with and talk with, everyone on the forum is very helpful, there are so few of us with 23's Jim Milewski BCA 50735, 23 Buick Opera Coupe 6-48 - am located in Central NY
  9. #1 should be at top dead center too then time it
  10. Are you full retard position when you timed it?
  11. The book that Brian refers to shows 4 cylinder - 23-36,37 and 38 as having optional heaters (all closed cars), 35 is open? so maybe that exhaust pipe with the crude cutout was the only replacement piece they could find and wrapped it - Jim
  12. Just located on page 49 reference (six cylinder 23 series) - car heater equipment - specific to 41, 47, 48 and 50 - states to order direct from Perfection Heater Mfg. of Cleveland Ohio - does list parts, so I suspect a dealer would install like any other options if requested by owner
  13. Our 23-6-48 has the Perfection Heater and as all know, the plug you speak of has nothing to do with the heater, there is a flapper valve built into the exhaust two to three feet ahead of the plug in the elbow, you pull a lever at the front seat to open at different intervals to allow the exhaust to divert to the heater, which has its own exhaust system, problem with them over time was people were being asphyixiated from not maintaining the heater, as far as who installed it "apples to apples" - In all of my service manuals I find no mention of a perfection heater, but when you google it, it or
