  1. There is a conversion chart here 27 is the number on your 2nd image. That link says Globe 27 is a match for AC 86 among others. Bob's Automobilia catalog says AC 86 suits 1929-1937 Buick. Check out one of your friends with one of those Buicks.
  2. If you aren't after white walls, go to your local tire shop and ask to see what 650 x 16 light truck tires they have on offer. I like our 650 x 16 "light truck" Bridgestones. Go tubeless if you can because the inner ribs on the radial tires damage the tubes.
  3. Do you have a standard gas tank cap or a replacement with a tighter seal? Cars have been known to grind to a halt if air can't get into the tank as the petrol is drawn by the motor.
  4. www.bobsautomobilia.com has "GM" key blanks ignition $5 https://bobsautomobilia.com/electrical/1934-63-gm-ignition-key-blank-.-kb-354/ and trunk & glove box $4.50. https://bobsautomobilia.com/electrical/1934-63-gm-trunk-glove-box-lock-key-.-kb-354r/ Surprised there is a difference. Then back to the local hardware store. TS
  5. BUICK CLUB OF AMERICA JUDGING HANDBOOK Appendix X, page 25 (PDF image 27) page 25 claims 1931 early Olive Green 1931 late Black some parts black. http://www.buickclub.org/wp-content/uploads/2014/08/bca_judging_manual.pdf
  6. No such springs on our. There is no cushioning if you drop the lid.
  7. Re-vulcanised motor mounts fixed the vibration on ours at 50 mph.
  8. I hesitate to chip in. But do you have the original style filler cap that lets air in as fuel is drawn by the motor? If the fuel cap seals the tank, cars have been known to be starved of fuel.
  9. Your description matches a problem I had once. The carburettor & heat spacer (there is a better name) weren't secured to the manifold tightly enough. Air got in through the tiny gap. Ran smooth at a steady speed, but to accelerate up a gentle climb or to leave town for the open road it was a really rough ride.
  10. The right hole is for the map light on a right hand drive car. Our map light goes in the right hole. You will note the dash is evenly proportioned and the glove box space and instrument space are a perfect right / left switch. This was when USA sold cars to the world.
  11. http://penriteclassicoils.co.uk/ has these recommendations: http://www.datateck.com.au/Lube/PenritePre1970/ Drill down to Buick and then select Master 6.
  12. "serial number falls in the 1939 range per the BCA judges manual" According to http://www.buicks.net/shop/reference/engine_ident_52.html 1938 "8" start 8-3396937 1939 "8" start 8-3572652 According to that, your 8 348 0333 falls within the 1938 range.
  13. At http://bobsautomobilia.com/ Go to the PDF catalog link in the 2nd paragraph of the text. Email is at page 128 of the catalog. Haven't repeated it here to minimize spamming for Bob's.
