    What do you have for a exhaust deflector and what car?? I'm looking for something for my 27 Buick Woodie. LeBaron Bonney had a few. Thanks for ant Help

    UOTE=Ron Green;1083838]There probably were as many aftermarket exhaust tips manufactured as there are factory correct accessory exhaust tips. Many shapes and sizes. For factory correct you need to look in the correct model year factory ligature as they are well documented.

    My exhaust deflector (factory typically called them deflectors not tips) which is an odd shape has been checked for originally many times by AACA judges without issues as I had the correct factory documentation.

  2. YOU CAN MOVE THE WHEEL AND HUB IN ABOUT .010 TO .020 INCHES. mAYBE THATS NORMAL. tHE LEFT SIDE IS TIGHT AND MY OTHER bUICK HAS NO MOVEMENT AT ALL. mAYBE i SHOULD TAKE REAR END COVER OFF AND MAKE SUE AXLE NUT IS TIGHT???

    This is 1927 Standard axle cut view if it helps. Are you sure it is the wheel wobbling, not only the rim loose or not true?

    That sounds like what's is going on. In fact today I called Fort Wayne Clutch who relined the plates and they said the same thing. Tonight I tried one of the metal discs on the hub and it was hanging up just a little, so if they all held up thats the problem. Thanks for your Help

    I'm shifting in about 20 feet of movement in 1 st gear and still grinds. Have tried all kinds of adjustment on clutch. I'm using 600wt gear oil that I use in all my old car trans and rear axles. I always double clutch which I learned back in the 50'S. I just took the clutch out again. I did notice that the metal discs where rusted quite badly and I did glass-bead them before I put it in with the relined discs from Fort Wasyne Clutch. Do you think the metal disks could be the problem as my shop manual says the metal discs should be very smooth. It likes something is keeping the clutch from disegaging. Usually I can figure thinks out but this has me stumped. Thanks for any help.

  5. I'm having trouble with the clutch in my 27 Buick standard. Can't shift without grinding badly. I have had the plates relined, new large coil spring made, new throwout and pilot bearings. When pushing down on the clutch peddle the clutch seems to throw in but can't shift only at very very low speed. Can't shift on the road. With the transmission out, how far should the clutch hub move in and out?? Mine moves about 1/4", is this too much. I have had it together and apart 3 times. NEED HELP.

    Thanks

  6. I need to replace the large coil spring in the clutch on my 27 Buick Standard. According to my shop manual it should be about 4 1/2" high. Mine is only 4 1/8" high.. Do I need to replace it. I have two used ones and they both measure the same. I can get a new one made for about $100-150. I really hate to take it about again. Thanks for any help.

  7. 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
