  1. Just an update... Got the manuals yesterday
  2. I emailed David last week but haven't received a response. I could try again
  3. Has anyone ordered anything recently from the Buick Heritage Alliance? I ordered two manuals on July 28th and have yet to receive them. I tried several times emailing the contact listed on the BHA website but it is returned as undeliverable. I also emailed the BHA president last week. No response from him.
  4. It could be from the casting process. My '21 has a rod rolling around in the intake passage that would be extremely difficult to remove. The block had to have been cast around it.
  5. It turns out a 20's u-joint will not work on a '16. The newer u-joint is slightly bigger and longer. The housing hits the back of the u-joint before it can be bolted all of the way down.
  6. There should be a washer on the outside of the front bearing, but behind the cork seal. I believe that is where your washer should go.
  7. I was just getting ready to suggest slack in the timing gears or endplay on the water pump shaft. I had both problems on my '21 but it was more of a random knock than one that was in time with a cylinder.
  8. I have a '16 roadster with a worn out u-joint and a spare u-joint from the early to mid 20's. The newer u-joint will fit the transmission and driveshaft just fine, but is slightly bigger in diameter. Has anyone used a newer joint in an early car? It seems like it would work, but I'd hate to get it all together and find out its hitting something inside, and then have to tear it back apart again. Thanks
  9. Thanks. Here is a picture of the one that was in there. Looks the same as my '21. Was the correct switch for a '16 also made by Clum?
  10. Does anyone have a picture of the polarity reversing ignition switch used with Delco ignition? My car came with a later switch and I'd like to correct it. Just need to know what to look for. Thanks
  11. As far as I know the pan was left bare.
  12. A 4 cylinder DB in good shape should cruise comfortably at 35-40 mph. I've had my '21 touring up to around 60 mph, but that is way beyond a comfortable or safe speed.
  13. Looking for an oil pump cover for a 1921 Pierce Arrow truck. Possibly the same as used on cars?
  14. Yep, pre '22 is a full floater so no puller is needed. Just knock out the pin, slide the axle out, and remove the plate or you can remove the plate and axle in one piece
  15. This may help. The nut is packed with asbestos rope.
