Ok. So my '49 roadmaster has been fine and real fun to drive. I now have an excessive transmission leak though. Sucks! It happened when I accidentally shifted into low gear at around 30MPH. Once I got home I noticed the massive amount of bleeding coming from the transmission. It seems to be leaking from the front (I know.. bad news) of the tranny and you can see the fluid spewing out from the bellhousing cover. I removed the cover and the inspection plate, checked my drain plugs on the torque converter and they seem nice and snug. Red tranny fluid noticeable on the flywheel.. The fluid is nice and red. Tonight, while messing around I decided to fire her up for a while. Bad leak still.. but I did notice another location leaking tranny fluid as well.. I saw it in the engine compartment towards the firewall where the block butts up against the tranny right above the starter. Seems to be pumping out from the seam between the block and tranny right next to an angle shaped plate!! I attached a photo of this area... Also, if anyone knows of an ol timer or one who could help me out around the Inland Empire area / Southern California it would be MUCH appreciated (shops e.t.c...). Jerrys 49
49 Buick Super 4dr sedan straight 8 Dynaflow, I bought this hoping to have time to bring it back but I don't, It has been stored most likely in a Garage for years, (no mouse damage)someone loved this old girl the interior was redone and painted some time ago! Amazing sheet metal it's had a small patch at spare tire well other than that I don't find any metal that needs replacing! I believe it's the original Eng. but does not turn, I do have a spare eng that does and comes with the car, I have inspected the under sides and other than some dirt it's in great shape it could easily be a driver or a easy restore, Some trim missing no Frt bumper I have a restorable rear, air filter missing. Brake pedal goes to floor. I completed the lien process and car is ready to be titled. Car is in Oregon, Can email lots of pics. Call Martin @ 503-968-2855 $2500.00 cash or possible trade Thanks for looking!

I am contemplating on purchasing a new wire harness (engine/dash areas) for my 1949 Buick Roadmaster.. my car currently has the original cloth wires still intact, but the cloth is deteriorating being they are 63 years old! Well, I've found some good shops for wire harnesses (YNZ, Rhode Island Wiring, Wire Harnesses Unlimited), but I am actually wondering how difficult it is to remove and install a new wire harness assembly for the engine area and under the dash area.
