  1. Grubin, Another option may be Opitz Transmissions in Schenectady, NY. 2165 Van Vranken Ave. Phone 518-374-8923 I have no connection to this business just providing an option. Good luck- Dave
  2. kookie1 & RussJagoau- just back back after a long day yesterday. Thank you so much for the info and part #'s for the u-joints. This will be a big help! Dave
  3. RussJagoau- Will this u-joint work for the front application as well or is there another?? Thanks- Dave
  4. Kookie1- Excellent workmanship! Where did you get the U-joint with the grease fitting? Thanks for your response. Dave
  5. Wes- Yes you can come as a spectator for the Saturday show. The meet brochure lists the The Saratoga Auto Museum as having an open house on Friday to AACA members and there is a barbecue scheduled for that evening which requires a sign up as part of registration. This registration has been extended to May 28th. Hope you can make the show- you will enjoy the venues. Dave
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. 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.
  9. Norman- here is some info that I hope will be helpful. Kurt Kelsey is the gentleman you are looking for and his phone is 641-648-9086. Also kelsey@praireinet.net. Good luck- Dave
  10. 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. Great job! I'm glad I could help- enjoy your car- Dave.
  12. Hi Billbarter, A quick search shows Kanter Auto in New Jersey is one source that does list components for 1941 Pontiac. Good luck - Dave
  13. Hello Greenie, According to my Hollander Manual, copyright 1940, distributor 647F is for a 1937-1939 Olds 6 cylinder. Hope this helps- Dave
