  1. Offering brand new replica of headlight bezel, to fit 1917 D45 Buick, can be also suitable for other years, brands or models, not sure. Bezels are made from steel sheet (NOT stainless) by proper forming process on a lathe and fit exactly as they should. Tooling is now available so any quantity can be manufactured upon order. They need to be plated or painted, plain finish is supplied. Overall OD = ~257mm ID (where it fits over headlight bucket) = ~245mm ID (looking from the fro
  2. Guys, have few questions for 1928 Master Six, left hand steering: 1) looking for (aluminium) heat control lever (in dashboard plate; not the choke one) 2) need a good picture of how the heat control and choke rods attach to dashboard control levers 3) need good picture of how the gas and advance control rods attaches to the cross shaft; I do have both rods from the gear under steering box and also some levers, but not sure how they all come together Thanks for any help. Josef
  3. Looking for restorable water pump body to fit 1917 D45 Buick. Good solid body will suffice, complete pump assembly in any condition (frozen, cut shaft etc.) will work too. Thanks for any offers. Josef
  4. Hi Larry, no way I wanted to say Mark is not good guy.. I wanted to say that in Europe we really need to rely on you guys in USA as the supply of parts here is really limited. Josef
  5. Hi Mark, thanks for your kind response My issue is that I am in Prague, Czech Republic and I only need to seek help from good people on the other side of big pond .... Josef
  6. Hi, looking to buy two (one is also a help) 26" flat base Baker rims in restorable condition for my 1917 D45. They are for Straight side 34x4 tyre. Should be 2 3/4" or 2 11/16" (68 to 70mm) wide at tyre bead. 4 locking pins and angle split. Any offers considered. Josef
  7. Ben, I appreciate both approaches, that is to keep irreplaceable original books as safe and clean as possible (here I understand the concern of your friend you mentioned) For workshop use you can always scan these original books and print as many sheets as you need and when you need. This is not so much effort in my view. Josef
  8. Offering 8 rim wedges / clamps for early 1920s Buick. Maybe fit another year or model. They have seen better times, but are far better than nothing. Parts are in Prague, Czech Republic (Europe). PM for details.
  9. I believe that 6.00 - 21" is correct size for 28 Master. with Buffalo A5 wheels. I had original Dunlop tires in this size on my car and bought the same size from Coker. I think 7.00 or 8.00 would look really fat. Is you car model 28-47 on 121" wheelbase? I love these Buffalo wheels, do you have all 6 of them? Difficult to source them these days.... PS: looking into 1928 Shop manual right now, is says tire size for Master (120" and 128" wheelbase cars) at 33x6 (6.00 tire on 21" rim) or 31x5.25 for Standard (114" wheelbase cars) . The math does not quite work with
  10. Ok, guage is out and looks to be in working order. Surprised by not-so-nice workmanship - rivets or bolts possibly not needed, but the soldering is at least questionable...
  11. I will try to reiterate the question again / does anybody know the lenght of axle shafts for 1917 6 cyl model D45? @SummitA - do you know what lenght you need for your car?
  12. Hugh, the strap wrench looks to be a right solution for my issue, thank you. I will report back. Josef
  13. Exhaust silencer is back in its place, with new tubing. We kept the smallest tube original. Another question raised today after we pulled petrol tank - there is nice original gauge, but seems to be stuck. How to get it out of the tank? There are no visible screws or rivets, is the gauge flange soldered directly to the tank?
  14. Hi Terry, thanks for the response. So - any idea about the lenght of D45 shafts? I suspect that the parts I am offered come off 4 cyl model but I have no way to prove it. Josef
  15. Sorry for being a bit off topic, but does anybody know if the axle shafts (and hubs) interchange between 4 cyl (D35) and 6cyl (D45) models of 1916/17 age? I was offered a decent set of some 32 3/4 llong shafts and not sure if it can be used for my 1917 D45. thanks for any advice. Josef
