  5. I had a local NAPA store rebuild my starter they said the solenoid was bad and after several week of looking for an exact replacement they put one on that they said would work my problem is that that I now do not know where to hook all the wires to make it work I have one to where the battery cable hooks to and the one that is hot to the small terminal I am not sure what to hook the third wire to I have tried hooking it to ground and to the same terminal as the other one the old solenoid had two small terminals for these wires. Thanks for any help you may be able to give me. Tim

  9. When driving and car is running at around 180 to 190 when I shut it off it does not like to restart it turns over very slow, after it sets for around 5 to 10 min. it will turn over fine I am looking for ideas on how to cure this. Thanks Tim
  10. Do the 1941 Buick Special and the Buick Super take the same radiator
  11. New 160 thermostat was put in, radiator seems to have good flow, I am pretty sure it is the timing it was set at about 8 btdc The manual I have calls for 4 but when I get it down to there it hardly runs and wants to back fire, dwell is right on 31
  12. Any one ever put a 6 blade fan on a 1941 Buick I'm thinking it might give me more cooling during the summer/

  20. Just got my car back from the shop after a complete overhaul and it is running hot 190 to 200 degrees they told me it would take a few hundred miles before it would stop running this hot has any one ever heard of this I am starting to worry about damanging the engine. Tim
