  1. I found a nos from Dennis Carpender. about $90
  2. I used the end of a 28 or later generator and used 28 or later dist. Can get all ignition parts from Napa for around $40. internal advance. Works great. Did this on my 26 and 27 Buicks
  3. I bought my wire from R I wiring. I install a fuse panel(glass fuses) from Napa and mounted way up under dash. I also used a solenoid between battery and headlights that was activated by headlight switch. More direct flow of current and brighter lights
  4. I am looking at some used 48 Ford camshafts. How can I tell if they are 48,. Do they have any marking on them ? Thanks
  5. I'm looking for a good 48 Ford car cam, must be stock Thanks Steve
  6. Can you change a cam on 48 Ford car without removing the heads, thanks
  7. I forgot how to remove the hood hinges on my 48 Ford Conv. Thanks for any help.
  8. We have a local Motion Industries that can get any kind of bearings. Any bearing shop should also be able to get them. good Luck
  9. L got pistons and rings for both my 26 and 27 Buick from Egge, Buick pistons are made a little off center where Scout pistons aren't. I think it was around $1200 from Egge.
  10. Joes Antique Auto parts them in stock. Best guy to buy Ford parts from
  11. I did the same on my 26 Sedan and 27 Woodie, I used a 40's chev carb. had to make an adapter because throat size was different. I put in an electric fuel pump and pressure regulator and runs on about 3 1/2 pounds pressure. Never ran so good. Never did hitch up choke. Didn't need it. Also used a 28 Dist. had to change back of gen. to a 28 back end plate. That why I can buy ignition parts anyplace
  12. Would a picture of my 27 Buick model 27 help. ssmith105@maine.rr.com
  13. I found shades for my 1926 Buick Model 26-27 at Labarron Bonney. I live close by in Maine so is only 90 minutes away. They have some all made up. Good Luck
  14. I found out it was clutch rod adjustment. Must be losing it.
  15. To 19tom40 I checked measurement on center of shaft to front of case and it was 2". When I bolted pressure plate and disc to flywheel the three pressure plate fingers go quite a distance towards flywheel. When I push clutch pedal down the throw out bearing doesn't hit the fingers. My throw out bearing is new is about 1" thick. I am wondering if I have the wrong one. Too bad throw out my old one. The clutch disc is same thickness as old one. If the fingers didn't go in towards flywheel I think it would work. I have tried 2 old pressure plates and clutch disc and have same problem. I have adjusted clutch leakage as far as it goes. Call Van plett but were closed today. Got an old FORd mechanic coming to look at it Sat. Do you have any ideas. thanks for your help. I have replaced clutch years ago and had no problems.
  16. Can I remove oil pan on my 48 Ford car without removing transmission ? Thanks
  17. I have a 27 Buick Standard. The oil filter is mounted on firewall. I found that WIX 51080 was a close match. I believe NAPA or any parts store can cross it over to their brand. I have always used Wix filters.
  18. My mistake the original 48 ford car transmission part number is 01A 7510.Don't know what case I have now but throwout bearing doesn't hit the three levers on pressure plate. I'm looking to borrow an original complete 48 transmission and put in to see how that works. Got to be a difference in case.
  19. I had my 48 Ford transmission case number 01A7005 rebuilt but rebuilder used a 1C7006 or 1G7006 case. Now the throwout bearing doesn't hit the 3 finger on pressure plate. Could it be that he used the wrong body. Says it was from a truck but says it was the same case as a car. Thanks
  20. I have a 26 Buick and 27 Buick. I used a Walker Sound FX Muffler # 18253. Was around $35 at most auto parts store. There is one bracket to cut off. Sounds just like the old buick muffler. Walkers website has all the measurements for it. Good Luck.
  21. Is there a better rear oil pan gasket than the cork one? seems I read somebody makes a rope type gasket for rear of oil pan like the front one. Thanks
  22. I have a 26 Buck Model 26-27 and a 27 Buick Model 27-27 which was made into a Woodie wagon in 1927. I use 28 Buick or later dist. Can buy all the parts from Napa for around $40. A lot easier to adjust and did away with hand timing. Did the 26 15 years ago and the Woodie about 6 years ago. No problems at all.
