    1932 generator removal

    Besides the 3 bolts holding the generator to the engine front housing, what else holds it on. Does the front cover have to be removed from the engine? I need to replace the brushes and springs in the generator. Is there a nut going through a gear in the timing chain components? Help
  2. Looking for a specific part for the Stromberg AA-2 carburetor on our 1937 Buick Roadmaster Series 80. The car has the 320ci "Fireball" I-8. We are interested in finding the specific part we need or an entire carburetor that we can use for parts. We have a rebuild kit already and the choke cable missing from the photos. What we need is the shaft that connects to the butterflyfly valve that the choke cable connects to. Ours was cut off and had a welded bend put on when the previous owner added a manual choke. We want to go back to the original auto-choke. If you cannot order the part for us, do you have any information as to where we may be able to get this part. We are willing to buy an upper carb to get it. See the photos attached for a better idea of what we need.
  3. Some of you may know about my 1932 speedster project. two threads tel lthe tale: http://forums.aaca.org/f230/32-buick-8-50-4-su-353115.html http://forums.aaca.org/f165/1932-speedster-custom-2012-great-race-319610.html I pulled the engine last week and it needs some work. Do any of you know if the later small block 8's internal parts can be worked into these early blocks? I'm thinking of the full insert bearings used from 1947, and if it's safe to bore to 3.0938 for later pistons (this block is already at 3.00, up from original 2.9375). Thanks, jc

  7. This can be found at the site of the old Western Mine in Ida Canyon in the Huachuca Mountains of southern Arizona. The car appears to have been cut down and transported to the mine site, where the engine was jury-rigged to a winch to power a cable hoist for ore cars. Though the design of the radiator shell (missing its badge) is distinctive, I haven't been able to identify it via image searches. There is a strip of chrome trim at the back of the hood. The engine is an inline eight, and the spark plugs are clustered rather than evenly spaced, as follows: xx xx xx xx The mine was sporadically active during the 1900-1920 period and perhaps a little beyond... Anyone recognize the radiator shell? Thanks in advance, Joe S.
  8. I just inherited my dads 1948 Buick Road master Sedanete,it is in great shape and was running great! I went to start it today and it turned over then all of the sudden a loud banging noise happened and it stopped turning over. I looked and felt where the pully is and you can move it side to side where the harmonic balancer is attached,very loose. The harmonic balancer was tumbling hard when it would idle so Im not sure if that caused the car to sieze or what,how far up the creek am I??? Its a straight 8 with the Dynaflow. Any help would be appreciated and I can answer any questions. Thanks in advance!!
  9. 49 Buick Super 4dr sedan straight 8 Dynaflow, I bought this hoping to have time to bring it back but I don't, It has been stored most likely in a Garage for years, (no mouse damage)someone loved this old girl the interior was redone and painted some time ago! Amazing sheet metal it's had a small patch at spare tire well other than that I don't find any metal that needs replacing! I believe it's the original Eng. but does not turn, I do have a spare eng that does and comes with the car, I have inspected the under sides and other than some dirt it's in great shape it could easily be a driver or a easy restore, Some trim missing no Frt bumper I have a restorable rear, air filter missing. Brake pedal goes to floor. I completed the lien process and car is ready to be titled. Car is in Oregon, Can email lots of pics. Call Martin @ 503-968-2855 $2500.00 cash or possible trade Thanks for looking!
  10. New to the forum. Can anyone help me. I have a 1947 Buick Special Sedanette Series 40, 1947 Mod 46-s, Style No 47-4407, Body No G 759, Trim No 50, 248ci Straight Eight. I have pulled the engine and trans and was planning on having it rebuilt as the car has not run in many years. I came across a straight eight for sale on ebay (item #230911355307) from a 1951 Buick Roadmaster. My question is, can I use this motor and trans in my 47. I've been trying to get more specifics from the seller, ie engine number and size, but he hasn't replied. And while I'm asking, can someone also tell me what years engines (and trannys for that matter) I can use as a replacement in this 47, without major modifications and staying as close to original as possible. I've searched the internet for some kind of interchange info but haven't found anything. Any other info you think would help me out would be greatly appreciate. Thanks. Pete
  11. 1950 Buick Super Dynaflow 4 door,no motor or trans. I am trying to sell the car to a good home. This was a project car that went south when i discovered that water had decided to hang out inside the engine. Tennessee car and title built in flint. Real solid car except floor boards and the rockers. Has the desired demon teeth 1950 chrome grill that never stops and the the three oblong holes in the hood and not the fender. Shoot me a message if you are interested. I would am trying to sell it so i can dump money into my 52 special.
  12. I am contemplating on purchasing a new wire harness (engine/dash areas) for my 1949 Buick Roadmaster.. my car currently has the original cloth wires still intact, but the cloth is deteriorating being they are 63 years old! Well, I've found some good shops for wire harnesses (YNZ, Rhode Island Wiring, Wire Harnesses Unlimited), but I am actually wondering how difficult it is to remove and install a new wire harness assembly for the engine area and under the dash area.

  13. I think I may have figured out my clock problem on my '49 roadmaster.. While looking under my dashboard and gazing at all of my connections, I noticed that on the back of my clock there is a little "stud" sticking out, and under it written GRN. I'm assuming this is the ground location. If it is, then I am missing a wire and a ground connection. What could I use to ground this clock, and where do I ground it to? I am pretty sure I have a New Haven clock in my vehicle.. Any help is appreciated! I don't see any info on the ground location in my manual. Jerry 1949 Roadmaster
