Re: 1932 The Deuce, Dually, Dump Truck

Re: Reviving a proper six

Hey guys, I have tried the shutting one eye and a few other things to no avail. It's just me, the dog, the cat, ten hens and my box of heart healthy red wine. As for the 226, I am running the starter...

Re: Reviving a proper six

I would love to give a report on my progress, but my wife has been on the mainland and my computer screen has shifted off to the right and she fixed it last time. I only see the left half of the...

Re: Reviving a proper six

I notice in the '42 photo the battery sits on the left. Does the G six have the starter on that side? Yesterday I made a heavy wooden cradle with engine mounts. It is long enough to build...

Re: Reviving a proper six

I can look it up, but I bet someone beats me to it. Lets just say that the day after I brought this thing back to life I went down in the morning, pulled the choke, pumped the throttle twice and the...

Re: Reviving a proper six

Specially when you consider they were stored in a nice dry metal building less than 2 miles from me. I was told that the PO sold his home and shop, bought a big sailboat and today is living in places...

Re: Reviving a proper six

Re: Buick woodie wagon

Once it goes on those worldwide sites, some dude with a huge checkbook snaps it up.... Lucky for the rest of us, the woodie market has been quite soft as of late. ( Ok , unless you are selling one)

Reviving a proper six

Re: Old School Parking brake fixture for stretched cable
