  1. I'm also looking for the alum. roof moulding for my 1926 Model27 I don't have the pieces from top down the side to rain gutter. I couldn't find them in Bobs catalog.
  2. I thought my 27 Buick Rad was junk but a rad shop here fixed it. There is a company Maine Rad in Lewiston, Me. They have a sheet of honeycomb the same as orginial Buick Rad that they put in front of a modern Rad. Looks just like a orginial honerycomb Rad. I was going that route but mine was fixable. Quote of $5000. to do a new honeycomb. Good Luck

  4. I am having problems with the horn button on my 48 Ford Car. Does anyone have a good picture of the parts in the horn ring itself? It seems to be grounded all the time. It didn't work when I bought the car thats why I think some parts are missing. thanks for any help.
  5. I'm looking for a starter drive for my 1926 Buick. Can't find one anyplace. Would anyone have any interchange books that might list one from another car that would fit. The armature number is D16588 and 11 tooth drive gear. Thanks for any Help.

  11. I think I found why the headgasket was leaking. I forgot to re torque the head after running it for awhile. All I have found is NOS head gaskets that seemed have dried out. Does anyone make new gaskets?? Thanks
  12. I'm looking for a muffler for my 27 Buick standard. I bought one from waldrons, fit perfect but very loud. Sounds like a large truck coming down the street. I bought one years ago for my 26 Buick at NAPA but can't find the part number. Has anyone bought a good quiet muffler at a local parts store?? Thanks for any help.
  13. I have an oil leak on left side of engine. Coming someplace behind exhaust-intake manifold. I used dye in the oil and a black light but can't seem to see where it is coming from. Valve cover isn't leaking. Could the head gasket be leaking oil? I have never heard of it but maybe. Thanks for any help.
  14. I'm restoring a 1927 Buick model 27-27 Woodie Wagon. I was down to Lebarron Bonney and they have all the correct fabric right in stock. I did my 48 Ford Conv. with their kits and looks exactly like the org. material. Nice people to deal with. I'm only about 1 hr and 15 mns from their place. Good Luck

  16. I have installed a 28 Buick Delco # 640J 71082 Dist. in my 27 Buick. It idles perfect but mech. advance doesn't work. I took it apart and cleaned and greased it. The plate inside says 25 degrees. Is this what the advance should be at full throttle?? I have afriend who has one of the old dist. machines to test it but wanted to know what it should read in degrees. Thanks for any help.
  17. I have put a 28 dist in my 27 Buick. It idles perfect but mechanical advance doesn't seem to work. Any ideas how to fix?? I like the 28 dist as I can go to napa for all the parts. Thanks
  18. I have a Stromberg BX3V down draft carb on my 27 Buick. Who does a good job rebuilding these carbs ?? Idles good but accel. pump doesn't seem to work good. I already but a kit in it, which didn't seem to help. Thanks
  19. I havea 27 Buick that I installed a 28 dist and gen. gear. Having a hard time setting the timing. Do you set it the same as a stock 27 Buick Dist. ?? Thanks
  20. I'm getting ready to install new kick panels on my 26 and 27 Buicks. I found the groove in floor boards but how do you fasten them to the wooden posts in front of front doors ?? The old panels were too far gone to tell. Coulld anyone e-mail pictures?? Thanks
  21. I have converted both my 26 and 27 Buicks to downdraft carbs. and electric fuel pumps. They both work excellant. You turn intake over and block heat tubes off. I used stromberg single barrel carbs off 40's dodge cars. I might be able to e-mail pictures. good Luck Steve
  22. I might be interested, where are they located Steve
  23. I changed both my 26 and 27 Buick to down draft carbs. Used stromberg one barrel off about 40 dodge 6 cyl. Also use electric fuel pump with pressure regulator. They both run super and start instancely. Just my thoughts
  24. On my 26 Buick Sedan and 27 Woodie I had everything chromed. I know its not the way it came but plater said the nickel doesn't last as long as chrome. I'm not a purest as I built both cars the way I wanted them. just my thoughts.
  25. I'm still having problems with the wiring on 26 Buick. I connected hot wire from starter (also hot wire from battery to left side of ammeter (charge side). On the right side ( discharge side) I connected the ignition switch, wire to voltage reg. and directional lights and stop lights. The more gas you give it the more it discharges on the meter, when turning lights on it starts to show charge. Thanks for any help.
