1939 Buick - Torque Ball lining replacement

1939 46C

Recommended Posts

Hello, I have the common issue with the worn out Torque ball on my 1939 Buick. In reading the various blogs it is a 1 year special for that year only. My challenge is finding somewhere that can reline the torque ball. I have tried all the usual Buick places online and so far not had any luck. If someone could assist with who to contact that could reline the torque ball that would be very help or has one to sell please get in touch. I have attached some photos of a refurnished torque ball that is what I want to get done. Thanks in advance for any help with this.

The fabric is vulcanised into rubber from photos and used torque balls I have seen.

Needs a little flexibility as the torque tube swivels on the ball, affixed to the jack shaft torque tube

Bobs Automobillia used to offer these 1939 Series 40 & 60 torque balls, but now does not.
