  1. If you have the rear engine mounts please contact me.
  2. Recently I started my own "Buick rescue society". It consists of me and one 1931 model 8-57. The car had been torn into by a hot rodder with plans to put a small block V8 in it. He got as far as pulling off the front sheet metal, torching out a cross member and brake pivot bar, welding in a new engine mount and losing various small original parts.

  4. Hello Pete i think you solved a mystery for me. I just bought a 1931 8-57 in Washington state. Manufacture date 09/18/30. Engine number 2639787. Open driveline. However, the transmission was not bolted in, but the purchase included two trans, both of which are synchro. Theses are not the correct trans are they? Also, the placement of the engine ID number (above front left lifter cover) indicates it's a 33/34 engine. Can you confirm any of this for me? Thank you. Phil
  5. Tom I'm interested in the transmission and water pump. Do you still have those?
  6. Hello Joel I too own a 1931 Model 8-57. Mine is in need of various parts (aren't they all?). If you decide to part yours out, I'm your man.
