1948 Buick Temp Gauge capillary tube

Recommended Posts

HI All.  I have had the straight 8 totally rebuilt but when we went to attach the temp gauge capillary tube to the engine cylinder head it began to leak badly.  Does anyone know of a source of these tubes or if they can be repaired?  Or if anyone has a temp gauge with the tube attached that they want to sell.  thanks in advance.

Just a question. Did you just install the tube directly into the head ??? I think there is a adapter that goes in the head then the temp tube.

 Nope. It goes directly in.

 

  Are you saying the tube it self is leaking? There have been threads on here about them being repaired. Hopefuly some remembers who does them.

 

  Mike, you might want to drop this down into the Buick forums. Some of those folks never come up here.
