  1. My 34 series 40. Just back on the road. Don’t know much about her history but at some stage has had a body conversion to a 5 window coupe.
  2. Thanks Morgan. I took off the side cover and all looks OK. I guess it’s not a problem, she is running well.
  3. Hi, seeking some advice please. i am checking the valve clearance on my 34 233cu and found that some pushrods can be rotated freely with my fingers when the rocker arm is off the valve but others are very stiff. I thought they should all turn freely. Any ideas please as to why some should be so tight? ray
  4. Thanks guys for this very helpful information. Ray
  5. Hi, an old thread I know but can I direct replace the old style pump with the gland packing on my 34 series 40 with the newer style? my pump has a pitted shaft and I can’t get it to stop leaking badly. ray
  6. Thanks everyone for the help and advice. I have found a NOS one in kentucky on ebay. Ray
  7. Thanks Grimy. Will check. Haven’t had any luck finding one in Aus yet.
  8. Sad tale .. Just found the gearbox from my 34 series 40 must have been full of water at some stage and the gears are severely pitted and most are unusable. The guy that's looking at the box for me can provide most of the gears required but I need desperately a 1934/35 input shaft and the synchro springs. I am in Sydney , Australia . Ray
  9. Hi Tim, just wondering where you are in SYD. I am in the Canterbury area, I have a 34 series 40 with the gearbox and clutch out at the moment. Ray
  10. I did find the chassis number ...
  11. 50jetblack, thanks for the detailed pics. that is a stunning car. No wonder I was puzzled how the clamps fitted, my stalks (not the feathered ones ?) need to be threaded. nzcarnerd, i havent found any body tags yet. The floor under the seat seems to have been repaired/replaced at some point but i still need to have a better look.
  12. 1939_Buick, Great - Thanks for the info. So from both the numbers my car sounds like its from around mid 1934. Yes - I joined the NSW Buick Club last week.. Ray
  13. Also can anyone post some pics please of the hold down clamps for the sidemounts. I have the wheel covers and the rod from the fenders is fitted as you can see in my first pic but I don't have any clamps or even see how these can work. Thanks Ray
  14. Can anyone please help decode the engine number( 42926111 ) the Chassis number ( S2753813 ). ? I believe the engine number falls in the 1934 Series 40 range.
  15. Hi all. thanks for your responses. i hadn’t thought it could be British built. Could it be a Canadian built car? 50jetblack, I am in Canterbury in Sydney . i haven’t found any tags, nothing on the firewall but I need to do a more thorough check.
