  1. Thank you! The NOS Motorcraft pulley/bearing looks like the one I need. I'll check the FoMoCo part number to confirm. Thank you wldavis My car uses a V-belt, not a serpentine fan belt. Victorialynn2, I'm going to check out Parts Geek.com because what I need looks like what is pictured in their website. I'm guessing that on Ford products, the pulley and bearing might be the same for a whole bunch of models, and just the support bracket that holds the pulley is different between models. Good lead--Thank you! Once I have a new pulley/bearing assembly, then I might also try going to an industrial bearing supply to match a new bearing as Rusty 'Toole suggests just for having a spare part for the future.

  2. I've been unsuccessful at several local parts stores and Rock Auto in trying to buy an idler pulley/belt tensioner for my 1979 Lincoln Continental Mark V with a 400 cubic inch engine. This idler pulley puts tension on the air conditioning fan belt, and is manually adjusted, not spring loaded. Does anyone know if this part is available somewhere, or can just the sealed bearing be replaced? It looks like the idler pulley can be disassembled, and perhaps just the bearing be replaced. The only problem with my idler pulley is that the bearing is worn. I tried using an idler pulley assembly from a 302 Ford engine of the same vintage, but the offset is different, so the pulley did not align with the fan belt. Any help with this would be appreciated.

  3. Hi, I'm having trouble posting a photo. Sending me an e-mail at 225carguy@live.com would work better for me with photos. Also, if you did a Google images search for 1931 Packard speedometer, there should be a photo there. The '31 Packard speedometer is oval, and has a window showing the numbers of the car's speed, not a needle pointing to the speed as in most speedometers. Thank you
  4. Thank you for your reply. Unfortunately, my '31 speedometer is oval and uses a different layout. Still looking for a speedometer for a '31 Thank you
  5. Wanted: A complete speedometer, or any parts of a speedometer, for a 1931 Packard. I'd consider buying the following individual parts from you if they are in excellent condition: -faceplate reading "North East," -glass lens, and -chrome bezel around glass. What have you got? Contact me at 225carguy@live.com Thank you!

  8. I bought my set of BCA license plate frames about 45 years ago possibly at Flint 1971 or Flint 1972. If I recall, the national BCA club was selling them, not a region. Yes, they are chrome plated metal. Gary Klecka, BCA #1955
  9. I don't know if this counts, but I drove one of my newer Buicks this weekend-- my 1972 Electra 225 Custom #8439 4-door hardtop. But then again, this is the newest Buick that I own, and it is my everyday car, summer and winter. In Alaska where I live, the roads are messy and icy this time of year, but my Electra handles very well in any type of road condition. Buicks were built to be driven! Gary Klecka, BCA #1955
  10. I'm looking for a set of four (4) used 6.50x19" Blackwall tires for my '31 Packard to be used to move the car inside the shop. My car is not running at present, and will not be driven for several years. When the car is eventually drivable, new tires will be installed. But in the meantime, I just need a set of rollers. I would also consider buying two (2) matching tires in 6.50x19" if you have just two (2) tires. What else do you have for a '31 Packard? You can e-mail me at: 225carguy@live.com Thank you!
  11. Are these headlights still available? Are they from a Standard Eight or Deluxe/Custom Eight? Depending on condition, I may be interested in buying them. Please E-mail me at 225carguy@live.com Thank you
  12. I have two tires that were made many years ago, and are now obsolete. I'd like to find out what company made these tires, and in what years they were made. They are 6.50x19 Defender blackwall tires from my 1931 Packard Eight. These tires, made in USA, are most likely from the 1940's or earlier, and may have been made by a large tire company. Any information on Defender tires? Thank you! Gary Klecka AACA Buick Club Packard Club Lincoln Club Model "A" Club CCCA
  13. I hope that there will be a bunch of '65 Buicks. When was the last time that you saw a '65 LeSabre at a car show? Steve, I hope that you will be able to bring your '65 LeSabre! Gary Klecka, BCA #1955
  14. Thank you for the beautiful photos and tribute Lamar. I remember seeing the Landau on display at one of the early BCA Flint National Meets, around 1972-1973. The color of the car was a lighter blue than the current color. I was excited about the style of this car back then, and I am still excited to see it today! Gary Klecka, BCA #1955
  15. The windshield on my '49 Super Sedanet leaks water. The glass is not cracked, just that the rubber glass channel is probably hard as a rock because it is original. What is the most effective method to reseal the windshield without breaking the glass or creating bigger problems? R&R the glass and install brand new rubber channels or just remove the windshield trim and apply glass sealant in the glass channel? Do the replacement windshield channels currently being sold fit OK? Is it easy to R&R the windshield glass on this car? Gary Klecka, BCA #1955 '49 Super Model 56S Sedanet
