  1. Yes , I have posted it there. Response was that there could be a tool machined to help install it, since it was made from a 1/2” bar of steel, I would assume the shackle was left 1/2” away from frame and not bottomed out. But that is just an assumption on my part and all I can go by until someone with specific knowledge can help me. Even RareParts who sold me the shackle didn’t know of a specific tool....
  2. I am replacing the rear spring in my 49 Super, I have read in the manual about the c-shaped shackles and nuts. I believe other cars like Chryslers used the same type of rear shackle: "Finish tightening the rear shackle nut.It is important that the shackle be located properly so as to insure the bushing being threaded far enough on the shackle but not far enough to bottom the thread in the bushing as the shackle moves in its normal operation. Bottoming will cause a hard ride and shackle breakage."Has anyone done this? Could someone tell me how to know when the shackle is threaded far enough? Should both sides be tightened the same amount? If not bottoming, then how much? Is there some way to gauge it?
  3. I just removed a perfectly running 262 from my 1949 Super Six and would like to sell it complete with the 3 spd trans and overdrive.Engine was running absolutely perfectly right up until it was removed, clutch is good, overdrive works fine, does not use oil or smoke. Engine removed for transplant. I can send a video of it starting and running if you leave me your email.
  4. Anybody? Surely someone out there has one...even in rough condition?? Thank you
  5. I need an original air cleaner for my 1936 Buick Roadmaster. Here is a pic of what it should look like. Any condition will be considered and if it helps, I could pick it up at Hershey next month. Thank you
  6. Yes, I did. Persistence paid off and I finally found the man that had the parts I needed. Thank you Old Car Parts!
  7. 40 series is too short, 90 series is too long. Haven't heard from OldCarParts. The search goes on!
  8. Thank you....I guess he'd go by OldCarParts.?
  9. I keep getting notices that I have activity on this post. I am awaiting a response from Old Car Parts in regard to the 75 5/8" piece he said he found and would pm me about. I am getting no response either posted here or in regards to my pm I have sent him. Am I missing something?
  10. Old Car Parts, haven't heard from you, what happened?
