  1. Having three 27 Buick exhaust manifolds repaired. What is a good black exhaust paint ? Every can I have says to paint manifold and then start engine right up to cure the paint. It will be impossible to do this as I have other work to do on engine after installing the manifold. Looking for paint that doesn't have to be heated up after painting , Thanks


  2. 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.


  3. 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.

  4. 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.


  5. 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
