  1. I read somewhere those horn button separators are prone to melting and or hardening. My old one was hard and had melted a bit. Replacement from Bob's was soft, like a computer mouse pad and about as thick as a mouse pad also, whereas my old one had only about half that thickness due to the melting and hardening.
  2. My horn had a "hair trigger", slightest touch and she would honk. Replaced the horn button separator and all is well. Bob's sells them "1937-40 Horn button separator, sponge insulator all models with banjo steering wheels HS-370 $4.25"
  3. Only one part number for 40-60 series torque balls, so I assume 6 bolt holes same size. Gentlemen that did relining for Bob's said he only received a couple of cores that were damaged. However, his buddy (a machinist), was able to repair them.
  4. If you eventually part it out, I'll pay $50 for the torque ball, $35ish for the part and $15ish for shipping.
  5. 1939 Buick torque balls, series 40, 60, that are worn and lining no longer usable. Paying $50 each, $35ish for the torque ball and $15ish to cover shipping.
  6. 1939 Buick torque balls, series 40, 60, that are worn and no longer usable. I am willing to buy 1939 torque balls, either individually or preferably in multiples. If you have a box of old worn 39 torque balls, I'll buy them.
  7. I read this topic and found that some have found a replacement seal by going to a bearing supplier and replacing seals by size. I tried to do this online, in trying to do so, I learned the OD of seal 130831, listed in my parts book and depicted above in danhar's post, is incorrect. The OD is listed as 29/32", it should be listed as 1 29/32". I didn't dig my seals out of storage, I just went off the dimensions in my parts book. Which are the same dimensions depicted above for seal 1308321. With the OD listed as 29/32" (and my lack of knowledge how number of parts needed are depicted in the parts book) it lead me to assume the listed ID of 1 17/32" didn't mean "one inch and 17/32" it meant "one part needed with a 17/32" ID". I just dug my seal out of my stash, and my measurements are consistent with 1 17/32" ID 1 29/32" OD x 1/4". Hopefully, this information may save others some time and frustration. If anyone knows the part number of suitable seals, please post them or PM me. I am not looking for NOS, I am trying to find new seals with new rubber, in leu of NOS with rubber that is up to 80 years old.
