  1. Have you look at a lawn sprinkler valve. They use a similar diaphragm setup, so maybe you could scavenge the material from one. Another option is McMaster-Karr (https://www.mcmaster.com/). I've had great luck finding raw materials from them.
  2. If you ever run across a 1930 66 radiator or shell let me know. I'd also be interested in the headlight reflectors. I've got the buckets and lenses but not the internals. I also updated my website to a new host and domain if you want to see my Buick and a few other projects. www.1936buick.com
  3. The pictures were just what I was looking for. I had the same problem tonight trying to get some pictures of my 1936 Buick for someone. It was so cold in the garage that the lights were not cooperating. I have a website with some pictures but when I tried to go to it tonight it appears they have stopped hosting it. But here's a link to some pictures of the Chrysler. https://webmailbyui-my.sharepoint.com/:f:/g/personal/groselle_byui_edu/Es5qbj_UDkREskr47Yb404IBR0h8ffPLoU7kRGxvQ6QAIg?e=xuklj7 I rescued it from teenage and homeless vandals on my father-in-laws back 40. It needs a lot of work but I have most of the bits and pieces. The exception being the radiator and shell and headlight reflectors which seem to have been stolen at some point. I've managed to get a 1929 Dodge radiator that is very close and a 1930 77 radiator shell. I just picked up the emblem the other day on eBay. The Chrysler will have to wait until a few other projects are further along, but I try to keep an eye for needed parts. Let me know if the link doesn't work. Greg
  4. Here's a couple pictures from my 1936 Series 40 sedan. It was a little dark in the garage so they are not the best. There is a metal center plate that is one piece from about the front of the seats to the rise in the firewall. I think it may be one piece with the bent part. I can check tomorrow. It does not have much of a hump at all. One either side are wooden access panels made of plywood.
  5. Thanks for the pictures. Now I need to learn how to do cloisonne enameling.
  6. I just picked up this emblem for my 1930 series 66. The enamel is missing from the oval. When I look at online pictures some look purple and others appear blue. Does anyone know the correct color?
  7. My 1936 40 was sold new in Bisbee, AZ. It came with the long heavy duty air cleaner that had a bent support rod to clear the air cleaner. I'll get some pictures tomorrow.
  8. Here's a few more pictures of my gravel deflector after I painted it. Based on a comment from a year ago I installed it at the bottom of the bumper. I have never like this orientation. Based on an image in the Master Parts book (attached below) I think it should be reversed. I'm also posting a picture of the listing in the parts book. It makes no distinction among the various body types for the 1935 Series 40 cars. groselle Greg
  9. Greg, Section 7.833 of my Buick Master Parts book lists a number of different rear bumper gravel deflectors for the 1935 Buick. For series 40 it lists a right, left, and center. So it may be in three pieces. I've attached a picture of the one for my 1936 41 trunk back sedan. It's installed upside down in this picture according to other folks on this forum. I've since painted it and installed the correct way. I can get you pictures tomorrow if you like. Hope this helps, Greg
  10. Apologies if it appeared I was stirring the pot earlier when I reposted a quote from someone else's earlier post. I did not intend to do so, sometimes my phone and fat fingers don't get along with each other.
  11. Does anyone know what the proper color scheme for the Fisher tag is on a 36 Special? It seems like they've varied slightly over the years from all black background to black with a blue coach. Also has anybody repainted one and have any tips. Thanks in advance.
  12. On my 1936 Special Sedan one key fits all locks: ignition, glove box, door, trunk, and side mount spare tires. Greg
  13. Rod, Here's a picture of my generator with temporary wiring. The red wire attaches to the 'AMM' terminal and runs to the positive terminal on the ammeter. The negative ammeter terminal then connects to the starter at the battery input. The blue wire connects to the back of the light switch, which connects to the starter solenoid relay. The black wire closest to the fender connects with the condenser to the terminal next to the red wire. The black wire closest to the engine is ground. In the picture it's connected to the relay mount. I've also seen it connected to the generator body via the screw just visible towards the engine. Hope this helps. Greg
  14. The tabs for the connections should be stamped with 'bat', 'grd', and 'amm'. It may be under the washers. When I get home from work I can provide some pictures. I believe there's also an illustration in the shop manual. Greg
  15. Here's two pictures of the firewall in my 1936 Special. Pretty sure the small hole in the very center is for the speaker mount. Greg
