  1. Even though it's considered a four day event, goings on in fall Hershey take place mostly on Wednesday and Thursday lately. Friday and Saturday are pretty well useless.
  2. eBay item number: 183941098544 Buy it now $1900
  3. Has anyone else noticed how short lived todays' 6 volt car batteries are compared to the ones made years ago? Also, any of you guys have a favorite brand that you use in your antique cars?
  4. Jim, I'm going to take the 3 hour drive Tuesday afternoon to the garage where my Buick was stored and look for the missing parts. The place is a real mess but there's a chance I might find the oil pump parts . Before you take any action, let me get back to you. I'll write you Tuesday late afternoon. Thanks for everything. Gary
  5. This information is REALLY helpful! You are a life saver. I've worked on dozens of 20's and 30's cars in my time, but this Buick is new to me. Thanks a million!
  6. I was told 25-28 would fit. Have you got parts?
  7. Need all parts for oil pump system for 1928-51 Buick 6 cylinder motor: pump drive, coupler, cam gear, oil pressure valve, anything else related. All I have is the base. I won't haggle, will pay your price. Thanks.
  8. Thank you. This information is very helpful.
  9. She's the big one. 28-51. Thanks for writing!
  10. I recently purchased a 1928 Buick Brougham 4 door sedan needing restoration. The motor turns but the pan had been removed and was in the car. In the pan was the oil pump assembly minus some parts. Would someone please advise me as to what I need to complete the assembly? ALso, maybe where I might purchase such parts. From what I can tell, there must have been another mating shaft,perhaps spring loaded, with a large gear which would mesh with the cam gear. Here's some pics. Thank you! All replies greatly appreciated.
  11. Really interesting! I never knew. Thanks!
  12. Dwight, crazy as I am, I'm up to 15 cars mostly 1920's. Some people rescue dogs and cats, I do cars (and dogs and cats!!).
  13. WOW! What a surprise! Great to hear from you. How's the progress on your buick going?
  14. Anyone have a 600 x 21 tire and tube they's care to sell? Just a "roller" is acceptable, nothing great. TY!
  15. Just bought a rough but complete 1928 Buick Brougham 4 door sedan, dual side mounts, and wire wheels. Strange tire size: 800 x 21. Seems awfully large. Anyone out there have an idea if this is actually the correct tire size for the car? All responses gratefully appreciated. Thanks

  18. The Belvederes P28-3 series all used the 6 cylinder 230.2 motor
  19. Do you have an engine head for this car? Need one for my 56 Belvedere. I'd consider the whole motor, too. TY.
  20. I own several mid-twenties touring cars all with worn out tops. Anyone have any experience or suggestions where to get tops made?
  21. Only info I can give you is that the starters vary in size from Star and Durant. I replaced a 27 Star motor (6 cyl) with a similar one from a Durant. Both the Star starter and the Star distributor were larger and did not fit the Durant motor. Don Schilling (Starman) in Texas may be able to help you. email him: starman@bigacres.com
