    WTB '36 Buick coupe 40 or 60

    If your friend is going to buy a 1936 he might want this if he doesn't already have one; https://www.ebay.com/itm/1936-Original-BUICK-Shop-Manual/292944804263?_trkparms=aid%3D222007%26algo%3DSIM.MBE%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D20160323102634%26meid%3Db5923431ce874864bf31d5d1ed67daec%26pid%3D100623%26rk%3D1%26rkt%3D6%26sd%3D292944812638%26itm%3D292944804263&_trksid=p2047675.c100623.m-1 Not mine. I just noticed it, and it looks like a good price.

    I assume you have seen this; https://chicago.craigslist.org/wcl/cto/d/elbow-lake-1936-buick-special-3-window/6800674007.html This is a 2 door but they don't state body style; https://parkersburg.craigslist.org/cto/d/moundsville-1936-buick-2-door-barn-find/6790331271.html Carl

    Paying it Forward

    1938 Buick glove box door with clock. Been hanging onto this for umpteen years and now that Mr Earl created this forum I'm hoping somebody can use it. Personally I think it's junk but maybe somebody can use it for parts. Any interest? Carl

    Wanted: 1937 Buick 40 generator.

    Actually if you put in a sealed bearing the oil cup would just be decorative. I might be able to find another cup off another generator but the hard part would probably be in removing the old remains. This came off of an early 1937 Special. Tried to take a picture showing the size of the pulley but I have trouble holding everything still. How does $35 plus shipping sound? Carl

    Wanted: 1937 Buick 40 generator.

    I have a 918F that is complete, however I think there should be an oil cup on the front and if so it is missing. According to my Hollander 918 A,B,E,F and G are correct for all 1937 Buicks. It turns but squeeks and would need a rebuild.

    Have you found a gas tank filler pipe? Finally warmed up enough for me to check in the barn. I have one from a 1937 Special. The Special and Century should have used the same gas tank. Carl

    What rear end can be used to cruise better

    I would you read a few of the articles in the old 1937-1938 Torque Tubes. You can find them and an index here; http://www.1937and1938buicks.com/information_links/information_links.htm Carl

    1937 Buick Stromberg Carb With Vacuum Starter Switch

    You're welcome. Glad to hear you got it all figured out. Carl

    1937 Buick Stromberg Carb With Vacuum Starter Switch

    Dave sorry for the delay in responding. Furnace and cold issues lately have kept me out of the garage. Both of the wires on my switch have a straight connector and neither has a 90 degree end so we can't tell from the ends of your wires which one goes where. The 9 volt battery and bulb like Gary suggested will work and so would an ohm meter. That's why I use twist ties or clothespins to mark wires when I remove them
  10. Many 1932 Auburn's had wood wheels originally. I believe 1933 was the last year Auburn's had wood wheels.

    Positive Ground Question?

    I can't answer your questions as I don't want to make matters worse, but a quick search on Ebay found a few cutouts that might work for your purpose. https://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html?_from=R40&_trksid=m570.l1313&_nkw=12+volt+generator+cutout&_sacat=0 Carl

    Dave a shop manual can be invaluable at times. This should help you out with the wiring. Carl

    1937 Buick Stromberg Carb With Vacuum Starter Switch

    Sorry the pictures aren't clearer, it's a case of holding a light with one hand and the camera in the other. I'm not sure exactly what you are looking to find out. Sorry but my car does not have the proper linkage piece so it probably won't do you any good. The wiring diagram in the shop manual should be able to answer your questions about the starter switch connections. I would suggest checking out the old Torque Tubes from the defunct 1937-1938 Club. You can find them here; http://www.1937and1938buicks.com/Technical-Tips/Technical-Tips.htm One Issue that might answer your questions is here; http://www.1937and1938buicks.com/The-Torque-Tube/Volume%20III%20Issue%205%20(March%201985).pdf Carl

    1937 Buick Stromberg Carb With Vacuum Starter Switch

    Larry is correct on all accounts. My car is the small series with the Stromberg. One modification I made was at the linkage by the carb with the piece of aluminum because I couldn't find an elusive piece. The piece of aluminum takes up slack and cuts down on hesitation. Adjustment of the switch is a little challenging but it is working correctly on my car.
