  1. Greg, did you find the ferrule installation tool you were looking for ? If not PM me I think I can help you. Bob
  2. Hi Bernie, yes a lot of fun, but couldn't put it in storage and drive and show the Selden. All the cream 80C s had the green door saddles like Lucy's. - Bob
  3. The '36 80C had a black Dash per factory specs. The shade is listed in my factory brochure. Also the instrument panel and glove box door was marbelized with a light gray woodgrain. I have many fond memories of traveling to Texas and purchasing a complete rustfree old restoration for $5000. And spending a 1/2 hour visit with B B King at a rest stop in Oklahoma. This was in 1982. - Bob
  4. My brother Chris has a complete 8 cylinder Packard engine w/ 44,000 miles. Complete as running with all components when removed from car. Has bell housing, and transmission. You may reach him at 1-585-259-0170.
  5. $um Fun, Check with Fred Hoch in New Jersey, He is a top Mercer authority and restorer. Bob
  6. Bill, I have had one of those gadgets that tells you stay on the center line for years, it's called a "wife". Sometimes I leave her home. Bob
  7. You are on the right track now Paul, that is utilizing your skills. Seldenguy
  8. There were two (2) radios available for the 1936 Buick. The one you show above is the deluxe model of the two. The standard lower level is vertical with no overlapping of trim panel and completely differently from the deluxe. Both are shown in the 1936 accessory catalog, which also shows the standard and deluxe hot water heaters.
  9. I had to fabricate a tension idler to get the required surface of a 2" start/gen pulley to function properly, It was a few years ago but as I remember the wrap was approximately around 200-250 degrees on the generator . I have since sold the car, but it has popped up on several tours, I assume still functioning. Phil, it was also a poly serpentine belt. Bob
  10. I am not going to be much help with the car identification, but the license plate is a 1911 dealer ( M is for manufacturer ) . The color is maroon with white letters. With 1911 plates the car can't be newer, and obviously looks older. Bob
  11. Al, you mentioned you need a parabolic mirror, but failed to mention the size you needed ? I have a few of them surplus to my needs, I may be able to help. Bob
  12. I doubt it, most serial numbers were stamped in the frame or attached to the frame.
  13. Any good machine shop can make a segment ring gear to fit any size flywheel.
  14. My error, it looks Washington Blue, it's hell to be getting old!
  15. There is a very nice looking 1936 4 Door convertible sedan coming up for auction at Cottones Auction House in Geneseo NY soon. I have no connection or interest in this car, but it does look good. Yellow w/tan top. It will make someone a nice driver and appears complete. phone 585-243-1000 .
