  1. Good morning JOBO- if parting out motor parts I would be interested in the water tube which services both heads as shown in photo #2. Thank you Dave.
  2. 53ponty- from the twenty-third edition of the Hollander Manual it shows that the '49-'54 6 cylinder Pontiac used the same starter which was #1107107 which replaced #1107079. If you have a Power Glide transmission the number listed is #1107144 for that year only. The folks of the Early Times Chapter of the Pontiac-Oakland Club International(POCI) are a great resource of knowledge. Please consider them if you haven't met and joined the group. Good luck with your project- Dave.
  3. The Hollander Manual for that period lists the #17046 Buick '26-27 Standard and Master as the interchange with the note "see #29" which has it numbered as 640J.

  5. From the Motors Factory Shop Manual - firing order on the 8 cylinder 1-6-2-5-8-3-7-4. Good luck with your car- Dave

  11. Good morning grubin, At last years show there were many trailers parked at the Eastern-most edge of this huge facility. Some owners used their antique vehicle as transportation while others drove their tow vehicle with their antique left in the trailer on site. Good luck- will try to make a point of seeing you- Dave
  12. A very informative topic. Edinmass- I enjoy reading your insights on all topics throughout this forum and would appreciate your feeling as to what size extinguisher is sufficient to carry in a vehicle being displayed on a show field or participating on day tours with a group of other antique autos? Thanks- Dave
  13. Hi Guys, I picked up a door sills catalogue at Hershey which lists sills for a 1930 4 dr. Custom Sedan. I don't have the gentleman's name but here is his contact info. Phone- 973-423-1196 and Email- doorsills@gmail.com. He is out of New Jersey and does a brisk business at Hershey. Impressive catalogue listings of all years and makes. Hope this helps- Dave
  14. Phil, Just arrived back home from this last week in Hershey. What a professional job- I'm glad I was able to point you in the right direction. Dave
  15. Phil, It hooks into a steel dowel pin on the raised boss of the flywheel cover. The pin has an appropriate hole to receive the spring. Dave
