  1. I was ibvolved with Motorama at Kansa City 1952.I was with the Dynaflow exhibit.Those were the bays
  2. At the Buik meetthere was a car like yours with an alternator,It was mounted on the right side of the engine,driven with a belt/ If you could get ahold of a picture,that would be fine.The alternator would run counter-clockwise,but I could come up with a fan for it.Make your own bracket.
  3. Several have put ALTERNATORS on cars like yours.They mount them about where the coil normally goes.I have sold nearly 300 6 volt alternators. Ralph Crisp BCA 2399
  4. I have several old vac tanks- condition unknown, CHEAP! rALPH cRISP BCA2399
  5. I have lots of 55 Dynaflow parts
  6. I understand a 53 Cadillac Dynaflow convertor works well in a 48-52 70 series unit.(Buick convertor plug on front sticks out too far)
  7. When I was very young,I removed the generayor from our Buick, Just remember where your rotor points before disassembly so you bcan get it in time later. As I recalllwater pump off first then slide generator back. I was scared at first,but pleased at how easy it was
  8. Keith,the fellow just before me at the barber shop had put a new battery in his "economy" car Thirty three hundred dollars. As I have always said"Before you buy economy,make sure you can afford it".
  9. Spring-loaded prop shaft spline seal usually takes care of this. BCA 2399
  10. (Pardon me if this shows up twice due to a malfunctio) I put a 55 transmission into a 50 Special. I ran a rod from the linkage back near the firewall. Ralph Crisp BCA 2399
  11. Dynaflow parts,(mostly 55 up) Dual_Path parts also.
  12. Differing dates different figures. Last post,supposedly final, but lots of people want know where it is now. Interstingly.a 57 Buick owner bought it. Who all want to find out where it is now?
  13. Mr Winneke, I have a 48 Shop Manual Did you change your address?
  14. Final note on Pious resale value. Advertized in a paper with a ciculation of 250000.six weekends of three days each. A total of 4500000 issues went out. A TOTAL of TWO replies were recieved/ (The dealersaid "probably tire kickers" As I stated before,the dealer.who only sells quality cars, said he got two with one deal,his first AND his LAST. The car was "dumeped" at auction.

His brother was also there and road in another car. I felt honored to drive this old gentlemen as if it wasn't for these fellows the war would have had a much different outcome, and where would this websight be. <img src="http://forums.aaca.org/images/graemlins/confused.gif" alt="" /> These fellows are getting fewer and fewer everyday. <img src="http://forums.aaca.org/images/graemlins/frown.gif" alt="" /> If any of you fellers or gals get the chance to drive one of these old fellows, do it! It is the least we can do after the time they served for all of us. The Old Buick ran like a dream and did its duty for God and Country on this glorious day. <img src="http://forums.aaca.org/images/graemlins/laugh.gif" alt="" /> </div></div>
  16. "Nobody but a gentleman COULD insult me,and he WOULDN'T "
  17. Read about teen deaths the other day. Too many young girls are ding in car-related deaths. A study revealed that vintage Fords, GTO's,442's and Cameros were the cars of choice for boys,girls seem to wind up with Kamakazi Death traps or"Killed In Action" throw-aways.
  18. I am proud to be a WWll vet . Some of my friends were shot or stabbed in the back while trying to get a drink of water while on the Bataan Death march. Nothing but Ford or GM products are in my driveway!

Check your parts book and you will find few parts that will be used on ANY other transmission> If you have any doubt,ask the "Old Guy'(he is young compared to me,and a lot smarter)
