The radiator is dropping heat evenly across it, so I I don’t think anything is clogged up. It is a newer core - I’m starting to wonder if the core doesn’t have the right capacity? Has anyone done a flow check with the radiator in the car? I’m thinking I could dump 5 gallons in the top of the radiator and time how long it takes to come out the bottom, starting the stopwatch when water first came out? Would that work?



It would be best to fill the radiator to the level you normally keep it at when running then let it flow. Even though it is not a lot with the height of the radiator it still will have a higher pressure when full as opposed to partially filled. This article I found explains it.

When I bought my car last year the consignment dealer recommended this group to me. They are out of West Virginia and they transport on the east coast.

I'm here to ask for assistance again. I need to remove the rear drivers side door panel to gain access to the door lock. My brother and I were at the opera last week and when he pulled on the door unlock pull the entire shaft came out of the mechanism. I wanted to know if anyone has any recommended way to remove the panel without damaging the fastners?

Mal,

I talked to John at the local AACA meet last month and was informed that he has sold this car. It went to a person located in Richmond, Virginia about 6 months ago. He shared a photo of the car which has almost been completely restored.

Thank for the assistance Howard. I tried a few of your suggestions and what finally worked was battery cables. I had s new set made at my local Napa store and even though the old one were 00 I was able to bend it into a pretzel were I couldn't with the new ones.

Now that I am driving the car more I had taken the Packard info my local Buick dealer who had a older tech that works on classics for them. While it was up on the rack I noticed that my differential is leaking around the bolts. I want to replace the gasket and saw that the service manual and service bulletin 20 #9 says to replace the Cooper wire ring #237673, add washer #221009 and "Boots tri-Lock" nuts as needed. I don't see these parts on Kanter or Max Merrit. Does anyone know if they carry them or who I could get them from?

No the switch is not for my fog lights. Those are on switch around the radio.

I do have a more important question. My starter stayed stuck on a couple of weeks ago. Before I could do anything the starter stopped but the car was still running. I was able to get it in my garage but after shutting it down I could not restart it. I pulled the starter any the brushes had pulled down and wrapped around the armature. I ordered a new starter, received it today and installed it. I tried starting the car and I can hear what sounds like it clicking but it's not turning over and starting.

Any recommendations on where to start looking?

( the starter is a rebuilt one from Max Merritt with new solenoid)

Thanks Howard you were correct. I crawled into the car and double checked and it is connected to the linkage from my gas pedal. I also don't have the od relay under my voltage regulator as you guessed from my photo. Well that's one mystery solved I know the basic history of my car from the hand written notes that came with it. The addition of that manual throttle is never mentioned. Now I need to go through my electrical schematic to figure out what the two toggle switches I have under the dash to the right of the steering wheel.

I recently purchased a 1947 2126 seven passenger sedan. The previous owner had passed away 3 years ago so the family did not have much in depth info on the car. I wanted to know if I'm correct in thinking this is the overdrive lockout.
