Buick and Dodge Undercarriages


Recommended Posts

I am trying to find homes for some undercarriages and misc. parts in Southern CA. 2 are 6 cylinder Buicks, one is a 4 cylinder Dodge. I believe one of the Buicks is a 1918 Model 45, the others are probably from  the 20's .

 

Time is short!

It's a bit newer going by the rocker arms. More like 1921 -22-23. The chassis will be the same as a 1918 but Buick gradually changed some of the engine details. In 1924 there was a complete re- design so 1923 at the newest.

The distributor section of the starter - generator is the slightly newer version as well.

You were definitely on the right track Ben.  The starter generators can be a bit misleading sometimes although this one seems to be correct for this engine. As far as I know they will all interchange as a unit despite some detail changes to the distributor. Two distinctly different caps were used, this distributor has the spring clips for the later style. 

The rocker arms are a better clue . There are at least 3 different styles { possibly more } used over the 8 years these engines were in production. This engine is as far as I know the final version.

I think the first one is a 21-22 based on rockers and S/G with distributor. Oldham coupling looks like a 21/22 not a 23 and distributor has the short and wide clips like a 21/22.  Also the engine number shown is a 1921 I believe.  Looks like 1922 numbers started at 76700 or so.
