    1946 Super finally running and driving videos

    SOOO I kept getting yelled at to get my Buick running and driving so yesterday was the first time she saw the road in 20+ years. 248 straight 8 lots of little things here and there too get her back to life and introduce her to 2017

    The drive was only a mile long spiked my adrenaline and I never got over 35 mph... I have a ton of wobble (I'm told is from flat spots on polyester tires) she didn't want to idle alone once on the street (died 5 times glad I just charged that 6 volt thing) BUT!!! my 1946 Buick has made progress runs, drives, steers, STOPS, and even has lights now not bad for a 22 year old drop. So I'm out 3500$ and so far I've
    -replaced snapped valve spring
    -flushed motor oil
    -replaced contact in distributer
    -rebuilt front brakes and replaced hoses
    -valve cover gasket
    -temporary ricer air filter
    -new 6 volt battery
    -FLUSHED radiator repeatedly much needed
    -cleaned dimmer switch and ran a ground off battery for tail lights
    -valve lash
    -rebuilt starter
    -and even rigged my starter switch to be pedal assist
    I'm such a cheap ******* I'm even still running the old plugs and wires. Anyways I'm looking for more information and suggestions on my baby so heres the link let me know what you think I should do...

    not to be a complete douchenozzle, but 'portrait' mode should typically be avoided unless you're looking at vertical objects like a single person or tall building. hold the phone sideways so it records a 'landscape' mode picture. this typically results in a lot more useful information being recorded.

    Looking good. I have a 46 Roadmaster project at the moment. You might take a close look at replacing the brake lines. Not a real bad job, and you can find kits on Ebay.
