  1. Looking for a horn button assembly to suit a 23-4-35 Buick , parts from a 22-4-35 also suitable. Any condition... Thanks Norm
  2. Rod, Thanks for searching this out (just the two pages ?), have you seen a Delco Piece Parts Catalog - Buick 1923 in your travels ?, If you are considering parting with it please let me know.... Many Thanks Norm
  3. 1918 Parts List on ebay at the moment .. https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/1918-Buick-picture-parts-price-list-Original-E-34-E-35-E-37-and-E-4-truck/192619488294?hash=item2cd9042426:g:Q-QAAOSw8P5baG82
  4. Hi Rod, Does this manual also cover 23-4-35 / D-251? Thanks Norm
  5. Brice,. These springs are also on my make list. Did you form them with "hot" wire or is cold forming sufficient? Did you need to replace any bearings thru the rear axle ? Thanks for the photos and advice. Regards Norm
  6. Brice, at this rate You'll be back on the road in no time.... Norm
  7. Brice, Thankyou for the photos. Great help.. The two pieces came from car that is down to be turned into a delivery truck (enclosed van) it was missing rear doors, tub, wood frame.. A story I know well.. I have also been given some ...blank.....the bits covering the frame in the door openings .Interestingly they too have folded over ends of say 3 mm enough the hold the metal off the timber on top and the face. Hugh, has mentioned "spacers" on his original frame a few times, makes more sense now, in lining up the body. Again thanks for taking time out for the photos, appreciated you sharing your journey Regards Norm
  8. Hi Brice, I Ve been fortunate to be given some sheet metal from two door pillars. Some rust on the bottom section but an easy fix. They have been notched out to fit over the frame runner or so I thought. The cut edge doesn't look factory and may have been done when that car was "uted" (turned into a farm truck) . how does this compare to the panels on your vehicle? Regards norm
  9. Rod thanks for post it I was beginning to think you needed. Ph.D. To work on this. Regards Norm
  10. Brice, is that a crack running thru that casing....
  11. Great tip Hugh, just checked on eBay $4 - $20 AUD depending on size ..
  12. Hi Brice, Thanks for the reply, You are making great progress, keep the photos coming its a great resource and encouragement. Cracked engine mounts sounds like some damage may have occurred in the past , any accident damage in the cars history ? May be worth checking the chassis is still "square" I have been looking for a Horn Button since I brought my car, if you find two pls let me know. I would even be interested in your broken one should the worst occur !! My backup plan at this stage is to have some black resin or black plastic turned down to the right size. I have tried other GM cars but could not find a matching one. We had some family issues that's taken some time to overcome but back on track now , restoration can be a long term job, On the workshop front I am becoming skilled in termite repair / replacement of damaged building timbers. What started off as a post replacement has grown into a 15m wall of crumbling !@#$ . Sorted thru my stockpile of parts and discovered a Ford A and a Studebaker Radiator and shell, no idea how I came by those. More interestingly found a box with a steam governor and 2 gauges that was a $2 find at an auction some years ago.. I am endeavouring to build the body "first" I have little to no wood work and missing a few body panels , your photos, Hugh's and other forum members have been a great help. Just a few rust repairs to do ! Kind Regards Norm
