  1. Hi Bill I spoke to Jim at Vintage Motion (231) 499-8211 for updated Hyatt roller bearing and felt seals jim@ensignbearing.com https://www.vintagepartsource.com/index.htm 343 MEGUZEE POINT. ELK RAPIDS, MI 49629 I also spoke to Steve and Mark at Southshore Bearing Distributors for a similar roller bearing model ( my dad used to go here for all his bearings ) office (617) 471-7800 info@southshorebearing.com https://southshorebearing.com/ 111 Copeland Street. Quincy, Massachusetts 02169 Both styles of newer roller bearings seem to match the original specs and don’t have the same heat and wear issues I was told. HTH Robert
  2. I just got a pair of felt seals from Vintage Motion out of Michigan. Call Jim (231) 499-8211
  3. Just found a copy of Vintage veteran brake repair on eBay, hoping it has a good section on 34 Buick cable adjustment steps. Took off rear hubs and found one Hyatt roller bearings #7147 was broke, took some research but found two bearing supply places with new upgraded roller bearings for rear hubs. Newer bearings have 15 rollers while original had 22 rollers, they said this newer design helps with heat issues
  4. I just borrowed a hub puller from a club member. Worked great on my 34-68C. Wish I could find one to buy myself
  5. Does anyone know best way to test the control valve and power cylinder I’m working on my mechanical brakes and need to see if the diaphragms are good and if not how to repair Thanks Robert
  6. Here is a jack I have in my 34-68C. Not sure if it’s original. My dad had several jacks he collected over the years. Probably from a Hershey meet
  7. Good info. What do you recommend for antifreeze Is Peak 50/50 ok to use this is for my 1934 model 34-68C
  8. Hello. I’m not sure which forum group to post my question on? Can someone please inform me on how I can ask a question to purchase an OEM /NOS oil filter for my 1934 Buick 68c. I’m having a hard time online with any parts stores sorry if this post is in the wrong group
  9. Hi Przemek Here is a pic of my 34 Series 60c Convertible Phaeton
