  1. Hi, I live in the Detroit area and I need a gas tank, sending unit, straps, etc for my 1969 Delta 88 Custom. New or used, does anyone know where I can get one? Thanks..
  2. I am still in the market for the following items that fit a 1924 Studebaker special six: 1. A wood steering wheel for a Studebaker special six, I have attached a picture of what my steering wheel curently looks like. It is 18" in diameter. 2. A rear double flanged hub (pictured)- either side is fine, only need one but would be willing to buy two if you have them available. 3. Gas tank for a 1924 special six. 4. Cowl lights, I have some parts to the right side but am missing the entire drivers side cowling light assembley. If you happen to have any of these items, have seen one at a swap meet, or could point me in the direction I might be able to find one, it would be much appreciated. Thanks again, John (530)781-3340
  3. Hello Everyone, I'm thrilled to have found this group. I have recently brought my original 225 out of long term storage & the tank varnished even though proper precautions were taken to prevent this. I have cleaned the tank and not the interior and even the baffle is shiny and like new. At this point it doesn't even warrant a interior sealant application. With just a few hours of work I was able to get the canister style sending unit working nicely again - confirmed by my fluke meter. I'm posting in the hope that someone with a better memory than myself could jog my memory about about the nipples protruding from the rear corner of the tank. The smaller vent nipple is open and unrestricted. The larger o.d nipple only allowed for a little bit of cleaning solution to drain from it when it was washed. Now, both of these nipples had about 8" lengths of fuel hose running to a plastic valve that had a deteriorated and compromised piece of cork or some sort of "stopper" in it. It's original purpose in my opinion has long since stop being effectively being served. The large line is def. the feed to the pump - I haven't been underneath this car in 15 years and the cobwebs in my head are very dense. It's 430+4, every option available. 60,000 original miles. Grandmother bought new in 69 - only driven by her for about 6 years. Thanks for any insight you may be able to give me into this situation I am currently facing.

    70 buick gas tankVents

    Just replaced my 70 Buick Electra gas tank sending unit with another old one for the gas guage to read again. Upon Fillup I noticed a leak not from sending unit lines but on top of the tank. It only leaked upon fillup. Do the 25 gallon tank vent hoses (two different sizes) hook up to anything? We could not find any hook ups for those two hoses on the side. No caps so I put plastic screen over and hose clamped them to keep wasps from building in there. Were there any type of caps in the past that may have fallen off? Thanks Randy P.S. For the future anyone rebuild the 70 buick electra sending unit or sell a new one?
  8. Hi, I'm trying to get my '57 Century back on the road after sitting for 10 years...but my gas tank rotted out! The top is full of holes, I doubt I can repair it. Anybody ot there have a usable tank, or know of a yard that might have a usable tank? For less than a thousand dollars? I was quoted $995 from a yard in Nevada plus shipping! I'm in Connecticut, so I can pick it up or remove it from a donor car if you're in the New England area. Thanks, JB

    1958 Buick Gas Tank?

    Based on my recent research, a new gas tank is not available for the 1958 Buick. Restoring the existing one is an option, sandblasting than renu coating inside and out. Bu has anyone succeeding in using a new reproduction for a 58 Chevy, for example, and modifying it to work on a '58? My car is the Special.
  10. I have a 37 plymouth that I bought a new sending unit for.When I spoke to Roberts I told them I had a 6 v. system with a positive ground.They said this unit would work.It works backwards.Up is empty,down is full.I can see no way to reverse the float.I will call them in the morning,but does anybody know if there are different units for positive or negative ground systems? This will drive me crazy tonight,anybody with knowledge on this subject?Any help will be appreciated. Lew
  11. Thanks for the info about my sending unit.I should have mentioned that it is a one wire unit, and that I made a new ground connection from my tank to the frame.Tomorrow I will call Roberts Motors and see what they have to say.I will let everybody know if I find out what the problem is. Thanks Lew
  12. My 1966 Buick Sportwagon fuel tank needs replacement and I can't find a tank for the wag anywhere. Will the tank out of the same year sedan work? I've checked out pix online and they look similar except the fill tube for the sedan is located in the center (for a behind the license plate gas cap?) instead of on the driver side like the wag. I'm prepared to swap the wag over to a center mounted fill tube and modify/swap out the bumper for a sedan bumper if need be. Has anyone replaced the tank in a wag with the sedan tank, and are there any gotchas?
  13. I have a pretty nice gas tank for a 1929 Graham-Paige that I no longer need. It has surface rust and I'm sure is rusty inside, and will need sealing. It's the tank on the left in the first picture, $150.00 plus shipping. The tank is in southeastern Illinois. If interested pm me or give me a call at 618-395-8216. Glenn
