  1. Hey I new to the Buick Forum. I have a 1964 Buick Rivera with a 425 nailhead and want to upgrade my alternator, im almost done with my rebuild! My questions is what brand and amp settings do you recommend for an alternator? I plan on putting in a nice sound system with subs later. Would 120-140 amps be enough or go higher? Also any places you might recommend to order some upgraded battery cables thicker gauge? thank you, Gustavo 1964 Buick Riviera 425 Nailhead
  2. *Misspelled "regulations"... We are currently fixing up a 1973 Buick. Interior all orginal and like new. Carpet is a bit faded between driver and passenger in the front and the bench seat has a rip where the driver sits. Other than that, looks like it did in 1973. Even the AM radio still works...The exterior is a whole new story. Quarters need replaced and a few other things. Anyway...It has "3-point" seat belts that are two separate belts in the front seats. The shoulder harness latches to the lap belt buckle. I know alot of classic cars feature a plain lap belt. (Sorry, not sure what this b
  3. Hi I am new to this club and I am looking for old dealership information. I've been looking for someone who has or knows where to find any dealership license plates from the late 80s that were used to display cars on their lot. Have you ever heard of Kutner Buick located in Castor Ave and Cottman Ave in Phila, Pa? Here's something I saved when my grandpa bought the car new at the now CLOSED dealership. This might give you a better perspective of what the place was.
  4. Historically, Buick was GM's "discreet Cadillac"--a high-end car without the high-end ostentation. For many years, Buicks were known as "doctors' cars" for just that reason. Ownership indicated you had money, but weren't looking to flaunt it. Over the years, Buick produced some of the most stylistically daring and physically impressive machines ever to come out of Detroit--or anywhere else. Of those notable machines, is the Estate wagon or Electra Estate wagon. These wagons served families across America from 1980-1990. Well it's time to pack up the kids and head out on a road trip! You and y
  5. HI all, This is the ongoing restoration of my 58 Buick Century Riviera in Sri Lanka. It is the only such car known to be in Sri Lanka. If this car was in USA, it would be considered a scrap car. Not even a parts car. However, we are not allowed to import any vehicle over 2 years old into Sri Lanka, so importing a classic is not possible. All we can do, is restore the cars already existing in Sri Lanka, no matter how bad they are and what it costs. Hope you folks find the restoration interesting. Looking forward to comments.
  6. Hi There all, Can anyone advise on the removal of the water pump on a 1925 Buick Standard? I think this problem would be the same for all models with the delco starter/generator and distributor at the rear, which is driven by a single shaft from the timing/crank gears at the front. I have read the work shop manual and it does not provide much clear direction. After following it to the letter, I cannot slide the shaft forward enough to get it clear of the distributor. I think I might have to get the front timing cover off move the shaft far enough forward to pull it clear of the distributor??
  7. Y'all probably remember this one from the buy & sell forum. I said it would take a while, but it's finally arrived, after a roll-back, an 18-wheeler, and another roll-back. Now safely tucked away inside my garage. Roy's description was accurate but for one thing - while it was up on the transporter I looked underneath, and it looked even better than I expected. Darned phone was re-booting at that moment, so no photos. A couple of hornet's nests were found (and I don't mean just a figure of speech - real hornets). For now, my kids have named this one "Mater" for the patina. My daughter even
  8. Hello! I am needing a good quality right side gravel guard for a 1957 Buick Special. Im pretty sure it's called the gravel guard, but just incase im wrong, it's the chrome piece that goes directly in front of the rear bumper end. I mainly need the passanger side, but if you have both, please do not hesitate to let me know! thank you, Brandon.
  9. I bought a 47 Super Eight and the VIN on the registration and insurance paperwork going back almost 20 years does not match the plate on the passenger side under the hood over the body type plate. I can't find any other VIN on the car. I don't want to return this to the seller... Love the car, but worry about the legality. Any idea exactly where the other VIN's may be hiding?
  10. I have a lot of Buick 8-57 parts here's a list of what I have price is negotiable and I can ship globally! 2 Front fenders 3 Rear fenders Bell Housing Gas and Brake Pedal I will upload pictures ASAP
  11. Hello, Is this a 1927 or 1928 buick? Master Six or what type? 95% sure that is a 1928 New Brunswick license plate. The bumper has 3 sections, which I think is a big key to what year or type it is? Thank you for any help! Photo below:
  12. (Hey, the new Forum! Looks good – thank you!) Well, I mentioned that I liked exterior paint color and interior color information. Allow me to bore you…. Buick records indicate that seven 1988 Reattas left Lansing with order code 14 Black Metallic paint (GM paint code WA8767).
  13. ATTACH=CONFIG]306778[/ATTACH]Currently working on restoring a 1928 Buick in my high school auto maintenance class. We recently realized we were missing our front wheel bearing cone. We are having lots of trouble finding this part locally, so any help would be greatly appreciated.
  14. Currently working on restoring a 1928 Buick model 115 in my high school auto maintenance class. We recently realized we were missing our front inner wheel bearing cone. We are having lots of trouble finding this part locally, so any help would be greatly appreciated. On another thread, we have been told that a 1928 Oakland 6 & 212 used the same bearing. Luckily this widens the search a bit, and once again, any help would be greatly appreciated! Attached is an image of the one cone we currently have.
  15. Hello, I am in the process of rebuilding my Dynaflow transmission off my 1957 Buick Special. I have bought a complete rebuild kit, (with all clutches and plates, etc), but I have run into some other complications and am in need of some other parts that a rebuild kit does not come with. I know that a lot, (if not all), of these parts can be found on various websites, but I wanted to post an ad here just in case anybody has any spare parts laying around. Here is my list of needed parts: 1. Hi-low Brake Drum (part # 1388730) 2. Reverse Drum and Ring Gear (Part # 1354974 ???) 3. Front Band 4. Re
  16. Hi everyone, I have just purchased a 1926 Buick 2 door and I need all tires and probably tubes. I believe they are 31x5.25 but I haven't gotten the car yet so they may be different. These are the type where the rim comes off of the wooden wheel. Any help or sources would be appreciated. Thanks Bob
  17. Greetings, I am primarily a hot rodder, but I found this and other brass era carburetors and parts in a lot I purchased recently. I like to see things like this make their way to people who are enthusiastic about them, so I have created an account here on AACA to do so. What I have appears to be a complete Schebler Model O Carburetor. As far as I have been able to tell, these were used on 1913 Buick model 30 and 31 Roadsters and Touring cars. It may have also been used earlier. I have seen some indications they were used on models 24 & 25 with the model 165 4cyl. engine as well. EDIT: my a
  18. I have recently got my 1923-4-39 running and on the road (see previous posts and video) and have come across an issue that i'd like the clubs advice on. my Buick has been running well for the past few months, I run her every weekend with many smiles and thumbs up as I drive down PCH. Yesterday, when I fired her up she ran well for about 2 minutes, then sputtered down to running on 3 cylindres. I let her sit for a few minutes, fired her up again, and the same thing happened. I continued this cycle all day- hoping that she would somehow "fix herself". Well she hasn't. It is my #2 cylinder each t

  20. Im turning 14 in a few days and my dad is getting me a free 79 Buick I want to put a cool spoiler on it. Can anyone help?
  21. As the restoration project drags along, I just want to say that trying to bolt the flywheel and the bellhousing to the engine after the crankshaft is already in the block is nearly impossible. Although I prevailed with a thin long box wrench and a bit of acrobatics to tighten the bellhousing bolts behind the flywheel a 1/16 of a turn at a time, I hope no one has ever had to feel their patience wear thin like I did. End of rant.
  22. Anyone have any luck finding plugs for the drivers side power window master switch? Any models that are interchangeable? Any help would be appreciated. My plug is hot glued together and some of the wire connectors are broken. I'm not sure I can salvage it.
  23. Hello, Im not in a huge hurry for these parts, but I wanted to put an ad out anyway. I am needing the wiper button and lever that goes into the wiper bezel for a 1957 Buick. Thank you for your time! -Brandon.

Inner taillight bezels 5. Rear bumper (ends or center) I am also looking for a parts manual Thank you again! Brandon
  25. I have been searching for the brass bowl to fit my 1925 Master Marvel Carburetor. a 1925 Standard Marvel carburetor was recently up for sale on e-bay, and after comparing photos, I could see the brass bowl casting number 65-10 was common to both Master and Standards. This is not obvious in the Buick parts book because it only lists the complete Bowl Assembly 65-524 Standard, & 65-525 Master. The only Master/Standard difference in the 65- bowl components listed is the High Speed Jet 49-, and the Air vent 111-. So I made the gamble and purchased the e-bay Standard carb, and after it arr
