  1. I'm working on the headlights for my 27 Buick. I need parts that go on the ends of wires that go from one connector to another inside the headlight housing. They are inside the light socket and look like they are soldered on but are actually a tack that is soldered to the wire. I have lost two of them. Thanks for any help.


  2. I'm looking for a couple of directional flasher holder. I'm using the round flasher that takes a bracket that mounts to firewall with one screw. I bought one some years ago at NAPA # 535 6volt that came with a nice holder. bought another today with no holder. Thanks for any help.


  3. My 27 Buick Woodi Wagon had the same type of gas gauge that was way beyond repair. I know its not orginial but I used a earley 50's 6 volt Jeep sending unit in my new tank and the dash gauge from a Jeep. It works fine but has a black plastic rim around gauge not chrome. It fit in the hole where my old gauge was. I can e-mail details if anyone wants info. Good Luck

  4. I installed a 28 Buick dist in my 27 Buick. I also used the end of a 28 dist. so the gears would be correct. I just got it running but having problems with setting the timing. After I get a new exhaust system I'm going to check to see if the internal advance works. It doesn't seem like it works now but too hard to tell with the noise with no exhaust system. One thing nice about the 28 dist. is that NAPA carrys all the parts for it and cheap compared to 26-27 parts. If it works out well I'll convert my 26 Buick also. Good luck


  5. I was looking for a fuse block for my 27 Buick woodie. Napa sells a nice ne with brass terminals and uses glass fuses. They come from one to 6 fuses. I bought a 6 fuse block. Their part number 782-3213 for $16.74 and made in USA. My woodie has not much wiring so this will work out fine. Hope this helps someone else out.

  6. I'm trying to figure out the wiring for my ignition switch on my 27 Buick. The wires were all missing when I got the car. It has an ignition switch with light switch and key lock on the front. On the back it says KELLOGG S&S CO. # 1133. It has 7 terminals. The # 7 terminal is wirerd so no problem, but can't figure out the rest. Thanks for any Help.


  7. Barry,

    Thanks for the info. I'll order a couple and see how they work. I'll also find an electronic flasher

    I have them on my '33 Continental. They are much brighter. However, if you have turn signals they won't work unless you have an electronic flasher. The amperage is too low for the bi-metal in a standard flasher to bend.

  8. I'm re-wiring my 27 Buick Woodie Wagon and am going to install a fuse panel up under dash. It is 6 volt. What size fuses should I use for:

    Directional lights

    Stop Light

    Head Lights

    Parking Lights

    Electric Fuel pump

    Horn.

    Thanks for any help Steve
