  1. So the 3.4 doenst fit a special. But the 3.36 does or is it the same thing?
  2. After i installed 2 nos rear shocks i again feel the rear shock start loosing their strenght after some 400miles. Why is this you think. They are dry and not leaking. Should i just try to refill again?
  3. Do you think the 248ci engine is still able to drive normally with this gear? thanks
  4. Hi guys. i am still on the look out for a better option for my 1940 buick special with a 3.9 rear gear ratio. I drive a lot and the fuel prices are ridiculous here. And also i want to have the rpm down. Since i live in the Netherlands parts shipment from the US will be very pricy. But now i see that there is a 1949 buick super dynaflow for sale in my country. Is this rear gear setup possible for mine? thanks
  5. Maybe i have found something. The membrane that holds the spring was partially gone. Now maybe the spring can cause the shortage between the 2 parts of the steeringwheel. I wrapped the lower bit of the spring in shrink wrap.
  6. Hey guys since i had the car the horn ring didnt work and a alternative button was mounted on the dash. Now i installed a new wireharnes in the car and also the cable in the steeringtube is replaced. now here is the issue. The horn ring works great again. But after a 20 minutes or so the car starts to horn. I then have to quickle run to the garaga and removed the cable from the steering housing. Nothing is touching the car whats so ever. Then the next day i can reattach the cable and all works again. Then after a 20 minutes without warning it starts to horn again on its own. Im confused. Is there some kind of voltage build up and need to discharge? So better i do not drive with the cable attached at this moment. Car is a 1940 buick special model 41
  7. Then maybe some one changed in the beginning since it looked like it was never removed. The cables were so brittle that when i touched it they broke. Also there was a stamp on the back with 40. Not possible that my car was already provided these style gauges? Will be a more expensive job to change all the gauges. So will leave it for now i think
  8. Hi. I never noticed this message. Sorry. But i see that you have a different gauge then mine. Yours look like a 39 right? Mine is round. Together with the ammeter.
  9. Yup. Got a new switch. For buick i cannot find the easy in europe. But these are the same as a willys jeep. And we have plenty of them here haha
  10. Somewhere in the past they cut an opening just above the vacuum wiper motor for easier access. Seen it before on other buicks. Hard to repair unfortunate
