  1. We also started to rebuild the rear brakes. My beautiful wife getting greasy.
  2. If you're paying attention to our progress. We hit a snag with the Wilwood brakes..... I'm a moron. I had the brackets reversed.
  3. After a quick conversation and reading through all of your comments and lectures (hahaha) we've decided that were just going to stick with the stock drums. Wilwood has already said that they will refund them. Now the search for bearings begins. I'm hoping they aren't very hard to find.
  4. Sorry for the long delay. I work odd hours sometimes throughoutthe week. I am heading to the Buick in a few minutes and I will check the grease seal. The directions provided are crudly drawn sonits hard to tell which side is which.

  6. The seal looks as if it goes in the opposite direction but it only fits in the position it is currently in.
  7. We bought a Wilwood disc conversion kit for our 51 Buick Super Series 50. Everything fit great until I tried to attach the new brake caliper. Apparently Wilwood brakes skipped the 51 series 50. Their website lists it, however Wilwood has confirmed that their kit does not fit. The bracket that attaches to the spindle to mount the caliper is not big enough. Does anybody know if the '41-'49 spindle will fit on a '51?
  8. For any of those wondering and paying attention we have the 263. Currently being rebuilt by Ricks automotive in Santee, Ca. Here's my dad with our new pistons from egge.com. please forgive his unkempt appearance. No time to run a brush through his hair. He couldn't wait to open the package.
  9. I actually found a guy in california that has new "old stock". Bobsautomobilia.com

  11. So my father and I are rebuilding a 1951 Buick Woody. We had the shocks rebuilt by 5 Points Classic Shocks in Santa Ana. When we picked them up we discovered that we had in fact rebuilt the wrong shocks. For some reason we had a set of '38 Dodge Brothers lever shocks in our shop. (Long nightmare story). We found the right shocks and are about to have them rebuilt but now we have some newly rebuilt lever shocks that we have no use for. Looking to sell these. Rebuilt in September 2020
  12. No, they are definitely not the front shocks.
  13. Seems like we rebuilt the wrong shocks. We have a 51 Buick Super 50 Woody. What shocks did we have rebuilt? What are these from? Obviously the greasy shocks are the correct shocks but what are the grey shocks from. We assumed they were from our car.
  14. Got a full wood kit? Haha. We need the lid and assembly for the windshield wiper fluid tank. Do you happen to have that?
