  7. To carbking, I'm putting a Stromberg carb BXVD-3 marking on base to a 26 Buick intake manifold which I have turned upside down to use the down-draft carb. A fellow in Austrilia has used a Stromberg carb with a BXV-3 marked on base. I need a 1 1/4" opening at base of carb. I beleive the BXV-3 has a 1 1/4" opening while my BXVD-3 has a 1 1/2" opening. I can make an adapter but can I use the other base on my carb? Thanks for any info. Steve

  14. I havea 26 Buick Standard and am going to put a 27 Standard crankshaft in the 26 engine. The 27 has counter weights where the 26 doesn't. Any tricks in putting one in. I have seen a few done up here in Maine but can't seem to find the older gentleman that did it. They run a lot smoother. Also where can I find alum. pistons and rings for the 26 Standard? Also gasket sets. Does any one in New England states do babbiting? Thanks
