35 Buick cowl vent attachment


Recommended Posts

Hi,On my 35 40 series cowl vent there's an attachment underneath on the passenger side . It's a rod that looks to go through a bracket on the underside of the cowling. Is there supposed to be a spring in between the attachments or does  the rod just go into the opening? Am I missing something? Thanks,Greg.

I do not have a 1935 Buick, mine is a 1941. I can say that the setup looks similar.

In my case the rod stays in the hole because there is a right angle spring steel fastener that joins the two. It wraps around the rod on both sides of the vent attachment. I was able to remove mine  by prying at it with a screwdriver. It looks like yours is missing. A photo is below.

If you can’t find this part you may be able to find a small tubing extender (like you sometimes find joining together rods going to a carburetor) with a small screw stop threaded into the sideDA2E9C10-292F-482B-9447-63153AE5DBA7.thumb.jpeg.86cd046bfbab762881c68b3b46930f65.jpeg
