  9. On both my 26 and 27 Buicks I used a end section of 28 gen. and used a 28 Dist. Actually you can use quite a few differant later GM dist. Haven't had any trouble in over 10 years. Got all the parts from NAPA. Good luck
  10. have had both my 26 and 27 Buick done at local muffler shop. Alot cheaper than sending away for kit.
  11. I just installed new hood supports from Speedway. Fits 42-48 Ford only. Worth looking at them. Hood never shut so good and very little gap by firewall.

  19. Looking for a replacement 12 volt horn for a 48 Ford. Are there any modern ones that sound good. I have a harbour freight model A type but doesn't have a good sound. Thanks for any help.
  20. Went to my starter rebuilder. He took a 56 Field coil (12 volt) and put in my 6 volt 48 Ford starter. Works great doesn't turn over as fast as the 6 volt starter running on 12 volt. With the 6 volt starter running too fast it had chipped a couple teeth on ring gear.
  21. I had keys made for my 48 Ford and locksmith took all my locks and coded them so One key would fit all. Did the same on a 36 Chev back in the 70's. So handy to have just one key. Good luck
  22. Would a 12 volt battery pak have enough juice to run a CB and GPS for say 8 hrs. Or would I be better off with a 12 volt battery and charge every night, Thanks
  23. I would to install a 12 volt alternator on my 27 Buick so I could run a CB and GPS. Has anyone put a pulley on shaft to water pump. Of coarse I would have to check RPM of water pump shaft. Thanks
