  1. Gary, unfortunately the spring is not there but thanks for your reply.
  2. I guess the heat riser is stuck on my 1940 L8 engine. Can anyone tell me which direction should it rotate to open? Clockwise or counterclockwise if looking from the front of engine? Thanks
  3. I'm new to this group and I want to introduce my self. My name is Per Ornberg and I live in Sweden. My main interest is American cars in general and GM cars from the forties are my favorites. I have a 1949 Chieftain coupe and a 1948 Oldsmobile Sedanette and like everything from strict original cars to Customs and Hot Rods and I'm a member of both the Buick and the Oldsmobile forums here at Aaca site. I have a question I tried to get answered but not found anywhere but maybe you can help me out. Did anyone have info about production figure for my 49 Chieftain Six Series 25 De Luxe Sedan coupe?

  6. Did Buick change the outside diameter on the bushing on the picture sometime during 1941 production? The reason I ask is that a friend ordered a pair of dropped uprights (knuckle support) for his 1941 Special and the stock bushings where too small in diameter. The dropped uprights from ”Fatman fabrication” are for 37-41 Buick Special. If this is the case where can he bought the right bushings for this? Here are some measurements: The treaded bushing on the 41 is outside diameter 1 3/16” (30.5 mm.) Inside diameters are ¾”. (18.7 mm.) The treaded pin is 25/32” (20.0 mm.) The treaded hole in th
  7. Leif, you got a real nice collection of old Buick’s. Merry Christmas Per
  8. I just discover that I can’t count. I went out and have a second look at my pinion gear. I made a mistake when counting, not 15 but 13. That’s make sense with a 3.60 ratio. I’m sorry for my mistake. Per
  9. I bought a rear axle from a 1950 Dynaflow series 50 Super a while ago and my plan is to use this carrier in my 1948 Special to get a more highway friendly gear ratio. I expect it to be a 3.60 ratio but to my surprise I find the ring gear teeth to be 47 and the pinion gear to be 15 for a total ratio of 3.13. I don’t suppose this to be original for a 1950 Super or was this an availably option this year? Per
  10. That’s really some good information Dave. Thanks. Yes it is a Dynaflow engine. Regards Per
  11. Thanks a lot for your help Leif and Dave. Regards, Per
  12. Can someone help me decode a straight eight I just bought? I was told it came from a 1950 Super with dynaflow. Here’s the # 58956105 I suppose it’s a 263 with hydraulic lifters but I haven’t opened it up yet. Thanks Regards Per
  13. Hello my friend Rafa and thanks. I didn’t know that you where a member on this site. You must show your excellent 48 here too
  14. Thanks a lot Mimie, you have a very nice Buick too
  15. John, I haven’t installed the air suspension system yet but I’m working on it right now. The system allows you to set and save your preferred ride height in the systems memory. So I can ride higher or lower then original if I want and the ride is very soft and comfortable. Per Ornberg
