  1. 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.

    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.

  3. 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

  4. 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.

    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.

  5. I have a few valve springs for 26 Buick standard, Don't know if they are the same.

    QUOTE=Brian_Heil;1395724]Ray Brown is puting together an order for 1923 6 cylinder Valve Springs. Cost will depend on response. Not sure what other years these will fit.

    Send me an email and I will forward it to Ray and you can communicate with him directly.

    Thx!

  6. I live near LaBaron Bonney so took my old shades down to them and had new ones made. Did a great job, They are listed in their catalog. good Luck

    I have a 1930 Buick 5 passenger sedan model 57. When I purchased the car I found it had no window shades in it. I would like to install shades for the two rear quarter windows and one for the rear window, however I'm not sure of the correct lengths. If anyone knows the length of the shades or has the ability to measure them from their own car, I would appreciate the info. Measurements from bracket to bracket would be helpful as well as the actuall shade width.

    Thanks, Tim

  7. Rick, We talked the other day on this. My 26 Model 27 has the same gauge as shown. But my 27 Model 27 that was made into a Woodie Wagon in 1927 has a completely different type of gauge as it is up under the Woodie body. sorry I couldn't help you out. I have used Bob's Speedometers for my gauges. good Luck

  8. I just restored a 27 Buick model 27-27 that was made into a woodie wagon in 1927. I couldn't find the flat bars so bought 31 Model A stainless steel bumpers. Same as my 26-27 Buick with weed Bumpers. They are stainless steel and about 2" shorter than the weed bumpers. if you want I can e-mail pictures. I was lucky to find weed brackets on E-Bay. I also had a friend make the back flat bar at his welding shop. Good Luck
