  1. 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.
  2. A beauty right? It has been reliable as long as I have had it and usually starts right up. Now for some reason at this point I am unable to get it to start. Between the time it worked and stopped starting I had changed nothing. It had sat for a couple months due to business travel and it being winter. I have tried to troubleshoot it with my limited car knowledge: It has fresh gas, and new spark plugs now. I have checked for loose connections in the distributor wires and did not seem to find any. I have tested and it looks like all 8 cylinders are getting spark. Battery is on a charger when I try to crank it. It seems as if the carburetor is getting good gas flow. The carburetor itself is in pristine new condition and everything moves freely. At this point I am not sure what to do. Obviously the more things I take apart the more things that might contribute to it not working..so I am stopping for now until I get help. Attached is a video showing 50 seconds of me trying to get it to start. Notice at the end in the last 10 seconds it sputters and the carburetor sends up a puff of white smoke. That is the most action I get. If any of you professionals need any additional data, photos or vids please let me know how I can make this easier to troubleshoot. Also I am certainly not too proud to have someone come out and show me how to work on and maintain old cars. If you know of anyone who is a mechanic in the Philadelphia area and has experience with cars from 1945-1970, i would be happy to pay them for their time if they are looking for some side work.

  4. I am a NOOB. I'm doing some research for my mom. She has heard that there is a machine shop near/in Philadelphia, PA that makes parts for Maxwells. I've tried the old Google but am not getting good results. I'm wondering if someone here knows the shop name/location. Reputation? Thank you. I will sit back, be quiet, and try to learn. MJB
