  1. Pont35cpe, Thank's for the heads up on the carbs. I might take you up on the offer if I start to have problems and if you still have them. Like I told Jon, the carbs are fine(for now) it's the vac switch I need. I'm a true believer in "if it aint broke, don"t fix it" attitude. Thank's again for the offer. I do appreciate it. Ed
  2. Jon, Thanks so much for all your hard work in digging up all the info for me. I am very greatful. FYI, the secondary carb has a 7-43 date so am I to assume that was changed at one time or not? If I were having performance issue I would consider making a change, however, she runs like a top at all speeds and idles like it's not running.I also don't want to make any changes from "as built" unless I have to. Like I stated in my first post, it's the vac. switch issue only and that was hit and miss but seems OK since I cleaned it up. It.s more of a piece of mind for me to have another
  3. Jon, The # on the carb. air horn is 7-42-A. I don't know if it has been replaced at one time since the car is a 41. Thank's Again Ed
  4. Thank's Jon for all your help! I would have responded sooner, but I had to get to my lap top at home since my I pad won"t let me post anymore. I'll get back to you this afternoon with the STROMBERG carb # and hopefully you can get me squared away. You are correct as far as my # 1990127 is a Delco # since I got it from my Buick master parts catalog. Back to you later today. Thank You Ed
  5. I was at Carlisle this past weekend and one of the items on my list was a starter vac. switch. The part # I have is 1990127. My first question is if it's the correct number which I got off of buick's 41 master parts catalog. I did find one and the seller said it was correct, but a very different number. I passed since I didn't want to get stuck with the wrong one. My second question is does anyone know where I might find one for a 41 248 with compound strongberg carb? Mine was sticking at times and would not engage. I cleaned and repaired it and seems to be working fine. Would l
  6. I've been trying to post on my I pad and for some reason I can't do it any more. Worked fine from day one up until the new format showed up. Now I have to use my lap top to post. Anyone know what's going on?
  7. Autonut, I also would like to find any history on my 41 and would like to know where to go. Although my car had been in the same family for almost 70 years, I'd still like to find any available history. Hope someone responds to your query . Ed
  8. Thanks Tinindian for the heads up.I'll Grab a pair today. Problem solved! Do you know the correct description for that part?
  9. Thanks Tinindian for the heads up.I'll Grab a pair today. Problem solved! what is the correct description for that part?
  10. I'm looking for the radio static supersors ( brass colored) that go inside the front axle grease cups. I've tried the obvious sources with no luck. I might be missing them on their sites under another description, but I've read all their listings with no luck. Does anyone know where I can find a pair? I could be wrong, but I think they are all the same for all series. If not, I need a pair for 40 series. Thanks in advance guys. Ed
  11. Thanks Neil. I'm ordering the book as soon as I'm done surfing the rest of today's forum. Eddie
  12. I guess as a new be I must be out of the loop or considered a moron. When I first came to this site I got a lot of feed back and said thank you more than once for the welcome and input. However, I had asked a couple of questions recently and granted, to most of you they were probably stupid. But being a novice in the pre war world just about everything I encounter is new to me and at times I need clarification or guidance . My last post had 65 views and not a single answer so I have to assume they were not relevant or for a lack of a better word good enough to deserve an answer. Very surprised
  13. OK guys, I'm sure someone has asked this question before, but I'm not good at finding old posts on this forum. Could someone tell me the correct sealed beam and markings used on the 41 specials? Also the best source for locating them. Thanks for any help. Ed
  14. Thanks guys! You all have been very helpful. All the best Ed
