  1. Here are some fotos of the engine:
  2. Dear community. The engine manufacturer has now disassembled and measured the engine right down to the last screw. The good news is that we could get him working again, but only with much effort. I will inform you about the individual work. But now a mystery that I ask you to solve. - The engine block is painted green - some parts of the head could have been black - Serial number is: 2922039 - Fireing order is that of a 1932, also measured on the camshaft - The carburetor is a 1932 according to Bob, but unrepairable. (I have to take a 1934, the only one I found.) - The distributor is a 663C
  3. Dear community. We have found the mistake. But it is not one mistake, it is a chain of very unprofessional work on engine, carburetor and ignition! - The carburetor is so botched that it's only worth getting a "new" one. - The ignition can be repaired, but I have already bought one from Bob. So I have one in reserve. - The main problem is the engine. Two weeks ago I brought the Buick to Bavaria to a 74-year-old expert, who is still working in his company, specialized exclusively in the rebuilding of engines before 1970. (British, US and German cars). He
  4. Dear community. Kompression an all 8 cylinders is: 5,2 to 5,3. Rotor and contacts in the distributor like new, no deposits. We are now changing the capacitor and if that does not help, remove the distributor. Maybe, that the contacts on the shaft for the ignition timing are worn out, and cylinder 4 & 6 comes that little moment too late. If that does not help, we've found a state-of-the-art distributor that fits the Buick. I don´t like new parts, but better than a useless car taking away space. If we find that bug, and we will find it, we´ll be
  5. Compression test was one of the first things, we did. Thanks Matt *we are restaurating (postwar) US-cars for more than 20 years.
  6. Hello Mark. Thanks, but the previous owner removed the heat riser. We closed the hole to the carburator absolutely tight. There is a 1934 50-series engine in the car. Could it be, that there is a different firing orded to the 1932? THX, Georg
  7. Dear Buick community. I bought a 1932-Buick 56S this summer. Unfortunately, the vehicle is far from good running. The exhaust gas values for nitrogen oxide show a value of 5,000, with a maximum allowed 600. This indicates incomplete combustion. As a result, the car has no performance. We do not even come on a trailer on our own. We renewed all ignition cables and spark plugs, set the ignition timing exactly and tested the distributor for wear. Everything like new, and therefor no improvement! It seems to us as if the cylinders 4 and 6 regularly expose again and again. Has anyone ever
  8. Hello Pete. THX for the information. I will report back, when the Buick arrived and we made a complete check. At the moment he´s in Panama.... Georg
  9. Hello Bob. Thank you for this estimate. I wrote you an Email. Georg
  10. Hello Robert. Many Thanks. I will contact you by email. Later, we can continue our conversation here, so that other Buick owners can share the experience. Giorgio
  11. Hello to the Buick community on AACA from the beautiful country of Austria. To introduce myselfe: My name is Georg and I live in the heart of Europe, in the beautiful country of Austria. I'm a small collector of vintage American cars with a 1940's Harley Davidson WL(A), a 1943 Willys Overland MB with a 1944 Bantam T3 Trailer (I'm an expert in this field), a 1967 Mustang GT convertible and an Exotic, a Kawasaki LTD 440 of 1982 (which was my very first motorized vehicle). I've been looking for a classic car from the 30s for quite some time. However, buying an
