WTB Rod or parts Engine for 1915 Buick

Recommended Posts

The rod for my 1915 truck broke on a tour last week and I need a new rod.  Does anyone have an extra one that I could buy.  Here is a picture of the rod and number from the parts book.  It is for the 3.75 bore engine which I think was used from 1914-1916 +-.  I would be interested in a piston if you had one also.

Please PM me if you can help. 

Thanks,

Hi Larry, this might be the time to bite the bullet and have a set of modern material rods made. It sounds like you were lucky and didn't do too much damage to the rest of the engine,. What if one of the other 3 has fatigue cracks beginning to form. Sounds like you use your truck a fair bit, might be money well spent in the long run.

Greg,

Thanks for the reply.  I have been able to get a rod from Dave Brennen to get going again so I can be at Allentown if all goes according to plan.  May look into new rods and pistons after this experience to be in the ready.

Hmmm, I might have called the wrong number by accident, but if you need further help, just yell.
