  1. I am in the process of buying a 1961 Buick Special from a friend of mine, but the only problem is it needs a fuel tank. I've been searching all over the internet for a solution. Can anyone direct me to a place where I can find one? Or maybe if anyone knows of where to get a replacement fuel tank for this vehicle? I would greatly appreciate it and thank you! Bobby
  2. Looking for the 90 degree fuel pump adapter for my 1940 Pontiac Torpedo Model 2927C
  3. Anyone have photos of where you put the electric aux fuel pump? I'm thinking back by the tank on the frame somewhere, but I can just picture getting through this, letting the car off the jack stands, and crunch - the suspension wipes the pump right off. This is for the '51, but any photos will help. (Even if they're the "don't put it here - crunch" variety.)
  4. Hi guys, can anyone out there help me please. I suspect my fuel sender unit is faulty as the gauge intermittently tells me it's either empty or full and nowhere in between, which is not very useful. Can I get at the unit without dropping the tank ? I'm not sure where to look.
  5. We are looking at my Father's classic 57 Thunderbird. He wanted to start it up for us, but it just won't start. The battery and starter turn over fine. We put some fuel in the carb and it does start, but dies as soon as the fuel is burned up. Makes us think it's a fuel delivery problem, however none of us have ever troubleshot something like this before. I have to assume it's a mechanical pump, or is it a vacuum? Some ideas/references would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
  6. I press the 2 buttons in the glove box and I don't even hear a click. Neither of them will open. Is it a fuse? How would I find out what wrong? Thanks!
  7. To All, I just purchased a 1927 Buick 2dr Sedan. Solid car. My initial intent was to upgrade the suspension and put a small v6 Buick motor in it to have a fun driver. But after looking at the engines condition I decided to see if I could get her running. Put a new coil in and fixed one of the wires and was able to get good spark to the plugs. If I spray starter fluid into the cylinders it actually runs albeit for a short period of time. Took the carb off and cleaned it good - replaced the cork float with a wine bottle cork?? - its all I had! The vaccum pump was bone dry and had a lot of sludge so I mounted a small lawn mower tank in its place and direct fed into the original fuel bowl. Shop manual says gas is gravity fed from the vacumm pump - not sure that is accurate - but thought if that is true my simple in line gas tank should work temporarily to see if she runs. Still don't think I am getting the proper gas flow from carb. I read another thread on our site and heard about the conversion to down draft. Is that as simple as it sounds and looks? I would appreciate any pointers from the experts out there - this is a first for me. Still thinking converting to newer engine, suspension etc. but now I am on a mission to get it running. Thanks in advance for your help.
  8. I just thought I would put this out here to see if there was any interest before I posted a ton of pictures. I have more than fifteen locking fuel caps available of various ages, types, sizes and qualities. I have all the details such as the dimensions, what type of gasket they have, how deep the insert portion is, etc. I will post a few pictures and if anyone is truly interested please feel free to get back to me and I will go ahead and post more pictures under my profile and then people can ask me further questions about specific caps then. That's the only way I can think to do it without posting a huge listing of fuel caps, since I have no idea what vehicles these may apply to. I am sure they fit multiple vehicles based on their dimensions and look since locking fuel caps are an after-market accessory. These caps are mostly in excellent condition and are going to sell for about $20.00 so they are very reasonably priced. The lock/actuating mechanism is smooth, lubed with white grease and clear of any corrosion. Thanks for looking and please contact me if you would like more information. Thanks! Sharon DocsGal
