  10. To 26-25 Buick I had a 36 Chev. distr. that slipped right into end of Gen. Need to get smaller diam wires for newer dist cap. Is it best to use copper wires ? Thanks for your help
  11. A few years ago I installed a 28 or later GM 6 cyl Delco distr in my 27 Buick. That way I could go to Napa and buy all the parts for distr. for under 440. I know I had to change rear gear on gen. with a 28 gear. Can't remember if I can still use the 26 Distr. end plate with 28 drive gear inside ? Thanks for any help.
  12. I have had windshields on both my 26 and 27 replaced. I just took glass out and glass shop made one from the old windshield. Fit perfect. Around $90 last year. No job to remove and replace. Good Luck
  13. I just rebuilt my water pump on the 27 woody. What is a good grease to use. I have a tube of Amsoil Synthetic Water Resistant Lithium Complex Grease. I had a water pump rebuilt on my 26 Buick years ago and I think they might have said to use this but can't remember. thanks for any help. I got the kit from Bob's and real good parts.
  14. 27donb. Your right, roll pin could slip out. I'll go back to cotter pins and red lock-tite on nut. Thanks Steve
  15. TO 27donb. Forgot I had to measure end play with pinion gears in place. Now have .008 end play on each axle. On the inner axle nuts I have been using cotter pins put hard job cutting the right length as they interfere with the I guess you call it diffential spacer between inner axle nuts. Could I just use roll pins and red Lock-Tite. thanks for your help.
  16. What should rear axle end play be on a Model 27-27 Standard. Thanks
  17. 26-25 Buick, Thanks will do it after rebuilding. Might have to get kit from Bob's. Shaft and bushings are bad, gland nut out of round ans impellar pitted bad. Steve
  18. Just found an old water pump in my spare parts. Shaft seems to push in and out, is this normal off the engine or is something worn. will take apart Tuesday.
  19. Who does a good job rebuilding water pumps ? I heard the CA kits are only so so. Thanks
  20. I just restored a 1927 Buick Woody wagon. I didn't care for the bumper that was on it. I also have a 26 Buick sedan which had the orginial Weed Brand Bumper. I was at a cruise-in with my 26 Buick and a Model A (1930-?) was parked next to me that belonged to LaBaron Bonney. The bumpers were the same wide, thickness, curve bot about 2" shorter. I picked one from tam's which was stainless and had it polished. Enclosed pictures of what came on the 27 and the new Model a bumper. I was lucky to find weed brackets on e-bay and had local welding shop make backing plates. I had the dividers between bar cast of bronze. If I set both cars next to each other you can't tell the difference. Hope this helps out. I'll try to attach pictures, if that doesn't work, e-mail me at ssmith105@maine.rr.com
  21. Who is good at rebuilding a 27 Buick standard water pump? Had my 26 rebuilt some time ago but can't remember who did it. Thanks
  22. ROGER, I could you a few spares, my old ones seem to strip easy. Have a 26-27 and a 27-27 made into a Woodie in 1927 Steve Falmouth, Me
  23. A friend of mine just bought a 32Buick Model 60 and there was no key in ignition switch. How can he remove the key switch ? Thanks Steve
  24. What do you call the bumper irons? The uprights that separate the bumper bars. If so I have some from a 1926 Model 27 Weed bumper. Also on my Model 27-27 Woodie wagon. I had new ones made and used Model A bumper bars which are exactly like the Week bumper bars but 2" shorter. Can e-mail pictures. Steve buicks;1425389]I would like to find a pair of front bumper mounting irons for a Master series. Mounts from 1925 thru 1927 will work I think. I have the 2 bumper bars, just need the mounting irons to the frame.
