  1. Larry, I started a response earlier today, but Don beat me to it. The job Don is referring to is the rebuild of my '41 Super transmission. As Don says, the Bob's part # you reference is the seal for the main shifter shaft, identified as the "transmission case seal" in the drawing from the shop manual, below. For the "vertical" selector shaft that Don refers to, there is a seal shown in the shop manual drawing, as you can see. However, we were unable to find one available anywhere, so Don came up with the O-ring improvisation, which as he says, is not leaking so far. Good luck!
  2. After a few minutes thinking more about it, I realized that the paint color on the back of the glovebox door on my car matches the color of the steering column. I'm thinking the same is probably true of your car -- brown with the brown interior, gray ("industrial violet") with the gray interior. Am I right?
  3. A reproduction of the tire pressure sticker is available (and I would guess has been available for many years), so I don't think the presence of the sticker is necessarily an indicator of originality. https://www.rubbertherightway.com/1941-buick-restoration-parts-tire-58644-prd1.htm?productFeedId=0&utm_source=googleBaseFeed&utm_medium=shoppingEngine&utm_campaign=Google&gclid=Cj0KCQiA0rSABhDlARIsAJtjfCdzH4UJZFXE9DnJ_NK1Em3vze80DwcQrcbAcMLLL8LQUewYMgCrdc0aAo2EEALw_wcB However, your current glovebox door may well be original -- the paint certainly has a "fa
  4. This is what the inside of my glovebox door looks like. (The precise color of anything is hard to show in a photograph.)
  5. Mine is original. I will take a photo for you when I get a chance. It's a browner color than yours.
  6. Yes, it is possible and much better to remove the panel nuts first and then remove the gauge nuts. Even with the panel out, I think you still might have to get to some of the gauge nuts from the back. I just can't recall exactly how I did it. My memory is that the wiring harness is pretty tight so even when you get the panel nuts off, there's not a lot of space between the dash and the panel with all the gauges in place.
  7. Hi Peter: Congratulations -- your new glovebox door looks gorgeous! As you say, that side's a piece of cake. However, I'm sorry to say that removing the instrument panel side is a major undertaking. I did it when installing a new wiring harness last year, and, for what it's worth, these are my recommendations based on what I learned during the operation. 1. I strongly suggest starting by removing the front seat. You are going to have to spend a lot of time on your back trying to stick your head up into a very narrow space under the dash, and I frankly ca
  8. Haha -- doesn't look like they care one way or the other! 😄 (It's a '40 Buick.)
  9. What a fantastic series of Kodachromes, Dave! Thank you so much for posting them.
  10. I'm guessing that it was some kind of plate for use on military or diplomatic cars overseas. Nice '41!
  11. Why do people put the top down, but leave the rear quarter windows up? Looks odd to me.
  12. I doubt very strongly whether you would be offered a "look." The only thing this "seller" has for you to look at is the photos, you can be sure of that.
