  1. Thanks for adding those pics! Very helpful.
  2. Great! Thanks a lot! Victor
  3. Thank you, Leif. I will look up his info. Victor
  4. To my email? No. Can you try again? vmilke at nutryplus dot com
  5. Ok... thanks! Anybody out there with pics from a correct Buick jack tool kit from the era? It would be very useful. thanks, Victor
  6. Hi Marty: Any chance you kept a picture of the jack? Thanks, Victor
  7. I guess you are referring to this one:
  8. Thank you! I would appreciate those pics! vmilke at nutryplus dot com Thanks again, Victor
  9. Every time I get a chance, I let some of my friends travelling with me drive the cars. Unfortunately, I don't have brass cars, (except for a 1915 model T if could be called a brass car) which I agree may be more delicate. My 1937 RR 25/30 is quite a shock for most. They think it it should be a fantastic car, as somehow the marque's mistique makes us believe... and when they see it rides like it does... Haha. The Phantom III is another story, and I also let that one be driven. I once let my mechanic and friend drive my 1915 Ford T speedster ... it was his first time driving a T

    Glad you directed me to Hemmings, Jeff, as there is another Elcar listed that I did not know of. It appears as 1925 Elcar Model 8-81 5 passenger Deluxe Sedan, and VIN as 1363439415Z, which seems rather off to what I have seen before. https://www.hemmings.com/classifieds/cars-for-sale/elcar/unspecified/2434808.html Beautiful car. I hope if finds a good home... perhaps any one here?
  11. A 6 volt system, if clean and well sorted out , works just fine. A key element is that all grounds should be perfectly clean, even light bulb bodies versus sockets. It is surprising how well they light up once everything is as it should. I would advise not to change to 12 volts as it will do much more harm than help. Victor
  12. Thanks! I guess I will take your route of polishing and having them painted with some chrome look alike coating. It is just that I read an old article somewhere that showed that some shop or supplier did the work even modyfing the numbers or marks to reseemble the real aluminun heads.
  13. Quite the opposite... thanks for your input! Abusing a bit: This is my choke shaft... does it look correct for the electric choke? Thanks, Victor
  14. Thank you both! By this time, I found an old copy of a second edition of the Authenticity manual and it is just as you both describe. Thanks a lot! In a nutshell, it is just as Mssr. Bwatoe describes! Thanks again! Victor
  15. Thank you, Mssr. Bwatoe! What you describe sounds like what I have,, which certainly makes me feel better, but I have copies of an old Authenticity Manual and it mentions a lever with an A (for automatic) and M (for manual) button or lever that you rotate. It also mentiones a carburator 16H-9505A designed for automatic choke, that apparently has no choke lever and no throttle kicker. Mine looks like the regular carburator for manual choke, which would make sense according to your description. So, I am guessing there were two types of electric choke control. I am glad I
