1909 Model 10 Transmission

Recommended Posts

Could anyone explain the adjustments for the Model 10 transmission? I have no plans for it as yet. Does it use bands like the Ford T? Is it adjusted from underneath?

I may be answering my own questions here. I've discovered the Model 10 Buick transmission does have bands like the Ford T. I assume they were originally woven cotton like Ford used. My next step is to try adjusting them. A hard push on the low or reverse pedals gets very little response, even though they worked pretty well before I towed the car home.

My car is much later so I don’t have the answers to your questions, but this ⬇️ is an indispensable group. The site is archaic as H___ but this is where the folks with these cars hang out.

You’ll have to ask for permission to join (though they accept everybody so I don’t know what that’s about).


Lots of luck

I don't know why you think it is archaic.  Frankly, it is the best site for early Buick owners to get the info and help needed to keep these cars on the road.

It is the best site no question. Archaic? In my mind the only thing I could compare it to is the old BBS system from right around 1992/3 except with pictures attached.

But then again, I have to go get my niece every time I get a new work phone because for the life of me I can’t get the things set up....

So maybe it was just my archaic mind trying to navigate the thing because at first it was like being bombarded with a mass email chain where I couldn’t tell the beginning from the end.
