  1. That is what I've wondered too. Dip stick definitely fits snug once in, and feels right. However, it's pretty tight to get the tube into the block. But I haven't tried to tap it all the way in. Thanks, Hugh.
  2. Can anyone identify this tube for me? I'm assembling a 28 Standard that was dis-assembled by someone else. I don't recognize this part and am curious if any of you know what it might be for? It's just over 4 inches in length, is 1/2 inch in diameter and has a pressed flange at one end. Any help is appreciated! Rod Miles
  3. Thanks you both. I'll talk to them tomorrow for inventory and get some never-seize as well. I appreciate your help. Larry and Hugh.
  4. 1928 Buick Standard Country Club Coupe. I'm looking for a set of 10 exhaust manifold bolts for my 28 Standard. Anyone help me in locating some? Thanks, Rod Miles
  5. And what is your suggestion for the torque settings? Thanks.
  6. Are you suggesting keeping the original bolts too? Thanks, Bob. Rod Miles
  7. Thanks, Hugh. Great idea and lead. I'm really hesitant to re-use the 90 year old bolts. Rod
  8. Whats a good resource for finding replacement headbolts and exhaust manifold bolts for a 1928 Buick standard six? Thanks! Rod Miles, member 48784.
  9. Thank you, Larry and Hugh. I will go to the plate for it's possible color behind it.
  10. I want to verify I mix the exterior paint color correctly for my 1928 Buick Country Club Coupe, Standard 6. It was originally a dark green with black fenders. How can I verify this dark green color code? Thanks! Rod Miles
  11. Yes it helped, Oldtech. Thanks a lot. I found the "O" stamp and it is a fiber timing gear. Cam is set in place, mains are tightened and off to oil pump and piston installation. I appreciate your assistance.
  12. Thanks, Tinindian. I didn't disassemble the engine but am doing my best to get it running well for the cars' restoration.
  13. Ready for the re-build of my 1928 Buick straight six standard. A clear stamp is on the crankshaft gear for lining up with the cam gear. However the cam gear's marking is not evident. Advice on properly lining these up with-out the second gear stamp for timing purposes? Thanks, Rod Miles Member Number 48784
