  1. 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.

  3. 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.
  4. I have a 48 Ford that the left rad. hose keeps coming off the cylinder head. It will idle for 1/2 hour and no leaks, If I give it full throttle for a couple minutes the hose blows off. Have tighten the hose as much as I can and even remove 160 degree thermostat. Thanks for any help.
