  2. 1939_Buick

    Engine id.

    6 7044827 6 (b) = 60 series 7044827 =???? The engine may have been re-stamped or re-manufactured are some time (often stamped "RE") Over the years the dip stick position moved back towards the flywheel housing. That can help identify a block Other engine photos may help identify Some time (1946?) the series was the last digit 1952 series 70 which start at 6652000-7 may be an option. 1952 has a different water pump design compared to 1938 https://www.teambuick.com/reference/ident_engine_til_52.php

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
  5. Now found better information in the 2017 Buick Club membership roster 720 off 1937 90L and 125 off 1937 90L exported That would have been LHD & RHD
  6. From http://www.classiccardatabase.com/specs.php?series=324&year=1937&model=2528 (This is not a good reference) 1937 91 1241 total production 1937 91F 158 total production 1937 90 1710 total production 1937 90L 965 total production Some where there are better numbers/description but cannot find just now In 1939 exported series 90 were 10% of total. That would have been exported LHD & RHD Engine number 9 3245895 9 = series 90 1937 320 ci engine numbers (60 80 90 series) from 3176225 1938 engine numbers (40 60 80 90 series) from 3396937 (ref BCA judging guide rev 2) We like car photo's
  7. Wild guess from http://www.gregwapling.com/hotrod/chev-trucks-47-55/canadian-chev.html 1934 MASTER/ MAITRESSE SIX D.A. Serial 633001 to 647300? Engine 4386001-4393399* or 1933-1934 2 TON MAPLE LEAF SERIES H.W.118/122 MODEL NUMBERS AND FISHER BODY NUMBERS MORE OR LESS COINCIDED, AND THE MODEL NUMBER CONSISTED OF FOUR DIGITS PRECEDED BY THE YEAR NUMBER, WHERE “1” WAS “CHEVROLET”; “9” WAS GMC; “2” WAS “PONTIAC” . THE NEXT DIGIT WAS THE SERIES AND THE LAST TWO THE BODY STYLE OR CHASSIS; MAPLE LEAF WERE PLACED IN THE CHEVROLET SERIES AND MIMICKED IN SOME CASES THE EQUIVALENT GMC TRUCK.
  8. An Australian book of GM Holden history by Norm Darwin has 1926 Oakland as chassis no. 64601-51 to 120800-54. So in the range of the photo In Australia usual to list as year of production and not USA model year

  14. Vinegar is a weak solution of acetic acid https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vinegar There are solutions used to clean tubes in water cooled refrg/air conditioning shell & tube condensers. Tend to be stronger acids. Edit Another engine cleaning thread https://forums.aaca.org/topic/306350-rust-removal-in-engine-oxalic-acid/
  15. The Buick truck thread:- https://forums.aaca.org/topic/282329-buick-trucks/page/11/?tab=comments#comment-1520539 A similar one in that thread (1955?), but the rear window is different/bigger (Better in my view)
  16. Welcome to the forum What is your location?
  17. Engine numbers for 1937 start at 3001000 8 = 80 series 33198805 is in the 1937 range To me those numbers are not stamped in the normal Buick way. Maybe a restamped engine Chassis numbers for 1937 start at 2830899 3160662 is in the 1937 range Chassis numbers for 1938 start at 3219848
  18. Only 1939 will fit-work. As other posts it could be rebuilt In 1939 their are 2 ratios. Was a design change in production The best source of pre war Buick parts is Dave Tacheny in Champlin, MN.

  19. Going to be hard to sell without photos. Unless you accept a very low offer
  20. With a GM Flint body tag it is USA production. GM Canada have a different style of tag and different numbering system What is the engine number (near the distributor) And we like photos.
  21. For 1939's S40 & S60 interior on Canadian built cars is different pattern to USA Fisher. Most noticeable on the door cards. Do not know about the larger series. And Australian built Buick's, with a local Holden body, use the Canadian interior pattern. But the interior would be Au made to increase the local manufactured content
  22. A close up of that data plate would be interesting. And the engine serial number. Canadian engine start with W (Walkerville Ontario) USA Flint & Canadian Buick's of this era have a different numbering method I suspect when the metal was rebuilt it was not 100% to the original dimensions & shape Seems to be several interesting large series Buick's of the 30's in India
  23. Original post was close to a year ago (Aug 22 2018) As a guess owner has sold it by now
