  1. Download the 1942 Buick shop manual. All of it section by section. The pdf link does not work. http://www.oldcarmanualproject.com/manuals/Buick/1942/Shop Manual/ It is very comprehensive and has information that can be used with all straight 8’s. It has more information than was included in older “Shop Manuals” before 1942-41 The oldcarmanualproject web site has other Buick manuals. Including the 1948-49, but section 4 is missing [Have not checked recently if S4 is now on the web site] The teambuick site has a the 1952 manual in pdf, but may not be complete https://www.teambuick.com/reference/index.php https://www.teambuick.com/reference/library/52_shop/index.php
  2. While I do not know Dave Norton, I understand he is active with the Buick Queensland (or NSW?) club. I think when he immigrated to Aust from UK the also bought with him the 37? Buick he owned in UK (but not 100.00% sure)
  3. Yes March 2018 https://www.abc.net.au/news/2018-03-23/vintage-maserati-cars-denied-entry-over-asbestos-testing/9579142 Two of the cars were allowed to enter Australia as they were built after it was made illegal to produce cars containing asbestos. Border Force initially refused to release the other six Maseratis unless holes were drilled in them to test for asbestos. "Six vehicles were identified as potentially containing asbestos and the importer could not provide appropriate assurances that they did not," a Border Force spokesperson said in a statement. "The importer declined to have the vehicles tested for asbestos. The importer was given permission to export the vehicles. off topic (my red & bold) Being cynical they are more interested in asbestos or a small bit of grass/dirt than illicit drugs Bernie: Best of luck with the bureaucracy
  4. Bulgari is more of a Buick collector, but has other brands Reasonably certain 1938 series 40 & 60 Buick use the same basic body (GM B body) Those of us who went to the 2016 BCA meet in Allentown saw some of his collection and his restoration workshops
  5. From the 1928-41 master parts book part numbers are Manifold intake 3.265 1240120 1931 50 3.265 1259587 1932 50 Manifold exhaust 3.601 1252989 1931 1932 50 So intake manifolds have different part numbers, but that does not mean they will not interchange. Need photos from some one. Exhaust manifolds are the same, so may be some hope

  9. No. To start with 1948-1949 front engine mounts are on the side. Before that mid-late 30's to 1947 engine mount at the front (plate). Guess 1932 was the same. Transmission would be a challenge From the picture the car looks OK. No rust showing. Too good to hot rod.

  11. Where are you located? There are (separate) Au Buick clubs in many states NSW https://buickclub.org.au/ VIC https://www.buickcarclub.org.au/ QLD http://buickcarclubaustralia.com/ WA http://www.westernbuicks.org/ Post war Buick's were Au assembled until 1948/49. Pre war Au Buick's had locally made bodies, that were different to USA Fisher bodies.
