  1. Hello. I know this is a common issue for these era of Buicks. I've haven't had the car very long, but since I've had it the speedometer hasn't worked right. When I first picked it up, it was all the way up (100+ mph). However, when I first got to test drive the car a couple weeks ago, the speedometer went all the way down, and as soon as I started driving forward it would shoot up to about 35mph, and then to 100+, than back down to 35. The other day, the car was out of transmission fluid (another project I got going on), but with the car set in "drive" if you would give it gas, even though th
  2. My new 96 Roadmaster Estate (63,000 miles) arrived with a couple of electrical problems. The courtesy lights will not turn off. The speedometer does not work (the odo works fine) Any tips or suggestions much appreciated.
  3. I posted the following write-up on my "Me and My Buick" thread a little while back. I got a suggestion from a fellow member to re-post it as a separate thread here so that more people can see it and use it. I thought that sounded like a good idea so here it is. My speedometer officially took a dump last time I drove the car. On the way to the Moonshine festival it began to make loud squealing/grinding noises and turn around wildly until it finally stuck. I took it out and lubricated it (process described below) but that did not help as I have apparently got a more serious problem. I know it is
  4. I got the Buick home from storage in town. Put in the NOS headlight switch, got the rebuilt radio and clock in, they work good, as does the speedometer I had rebuilt last fall. GOt it back in before putting it in storage. Nice to have everything working. BUT the power steering pump was sorta noisy, was low on fluid, so hope that takes care of that. Now if it will just warm up for some crusin'. What happened to 'global warming'? Bypassed Nebraska.
  5. Hello, I've almost finished restoring a 1926 Pontiac in Australia but still need a speedometer. I understand it should be an AC which reads up to 75 or 80 mph and includes a trip meter that can be reset. The opening on the instrument panel is 2.5". Does anyone have a good one or one that is suitable for restoration? Cheers, Ryan
  6. Does anybody have a 1958 Buick speedometer lens that's not cracked up? email daveharris72@hotmail.com
  7. Hi, I have a 1966 Buick Riviera and i need a Speedometer, Amp, Clock. I live in San Francisco, CA. Please let me know if you have something for sale. Thanks, Peter 415-627-8441 peter@theapartment.se
  8. Has anyone installed an electronic speedo in their antique auto? I'd like to confirm MPH accuracy with another gauge. The few I've checked online require a transmission sending unit which apparently disconnects the stock mechanical speedo cable making gauge comparison impossible. Any leads or advice most welcome... thank you!
  9. Problems I am having with my 1940 Buick Special. I like to resolve things on my own, partially because I am on a limited budget. A very significant problem with exhaust manifold cracking was successfully resolved, largely with advice I got here on the PWD blog. I published a memorandum on that resolution here. [*]Draining the engine block -- Numerous attempts have failed. The block drain was just a threaded hole when I got the car. I poked around many times with a wire and only got a greasy wire. I applied 80 pounds of air pressure (after opening and draining the radiator) and had no result.
  10. Hi everybody, I am new to the forums and hopefully somebody can shed some light on my problems with my Reatta, which I LOVE by the way. My speedometer and most of my touch screen, just do not work most of the time. About 90% of the time, it just says "electrical problem" where my speed should be displayed. However even when the speedometer and the rest of my dashboard is out, my radio is still fully functional. I can not go to the "gages" "climate" or any other page, just my radio. But in the rare occasion that the dashboard works, everything works great! So anyway I hope somebody can help me,
  11. What is the best way to get my faded odometer numbers restored? Should I take it apart and repaint them myself or is this something best left to a speedometer restoration shop? The MPH numbers are fine, but the odometer numbers are faded almost beyond recognition. Any tips? I'm mighty handy with brush and paint.

  13. I'm selling on ebay a speedometer that I removed from a 76 Seville. I was asked if it will fit a 76 Eldorado. I don't have a Hollander manual that covers the 76 model year, so I can't answer the question. Can anyone tell me if the 76 Seville speedometer can be used in a 76 Eldorado? The part number on the Seville speedo is 8985013-1; on the attached circuit board is the number AC 8987162 PED-1. Thanks very much! If viewing the speedo will help, it is at Cadillac Seville 76 77 78 79 GM speedometer assy:eBay Motors (item 220511764174 end time Dec-16-09 12:26:27 PST)
  14. I have dodge speedometer, assumed to be early 1920s. Any help in identifying its years of usage will be appreciated. I dont need it and want to sell it to someone who can use it. Price $45. thanks jerry whitfield north carolina
