  1. Hey, Jerry, that is the larger, inner bearing, right?

    How's 20 bucks shipped for the ball cage?

    They don't make these bearings anymore and even roller-bearing replacements are hard to find.  What I have is the more durable Original Departure brand that came out of the factory, used.  Even used, they are better than newer replacements.

    You can paypall me at [email protected]

    Or mail a check to Doug Cook

  2. I have your exhaust hanger, in nice shape.  Rubber strap is still extant, but broken.  No bolt or nut for the closing of the clamp, though.  40.00 shipped?

      The hanger went out this morning, and should be there Thursday.  Best wishes for the new year!

      Got it today. Looks good. I already replaced the rubber strap. It will go on with my new exhaust this weekend.

  4. Hi Father Buick,

    Do you have any recommendations on where to purchase an exhaust system for my 54 Century (4 door)?  I need pretty much the whole thing.  Thanks!

      If you need a crossover pipe, I have ones for sale.  I might also have a couple of original hangers if interested.  One can be seen from the engine bay, and one a bit from the rear.

      You see the long-style muffler on ebay now and then.  Local muffler shops will not have them anywhere near the proper length.

      I got my pipes NORS out of Michigan, IIRC, but can not find a receipt.  A local shop should be able to bend ones for you.

      Post a question, and you will get some suggestions.

  5. On your 48D . I need a couple of parts for headliner. 3 (2prong)fork shaped brkts. that go on the end of rods, & 2 strips of metal with teeth that go above the doors. There should be one on each side. Thanx Mike

  7. Hey, Lamar, I'll take the hood ornament, please.  Thanks!
