Sorry - who can help me with finding parts for a 53?

My 1953 Oldsmobile Ninety Eight needs parts which I cant find.

I tried to find in Fusick online catalogue, but didnt find them.

First :

Rubber parts for rear spring



Next – Power brake kit

I think it is a Bendix but I am not sure. Can you see it better maybe ?

(its an very early 53 I was told January sold))





Next :



I can switch the headlight fine from hi to low in manual , but my car has Autronic eye and the second switch seems to be defect – so I think I cant switch on the „auto position“ for autronic eye.

Next :


PF122 Engine Oil Filter 1949-59 8 cylinder (this should be the right one ?)

Thanks for helping

So I would love to get all parts from Fusick for example but I cant find the numbers in their catalogue

Well, I have to ask, don't they have ebay in Austria (I know the answer)?
https://www.ebay.at/sch/i.html?_odkw...ilter&_sacat=0

Are you a member?

If not, you should be as ebay is your friend when it comes to locating hard to find stuff for old rides.

and here's the rear spring bushings on eBay:

https://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html?_from=R40&_trksid=p2323847.m570.l1313.TR0.T RC0.A0.H1.X53+oldsmobile+rear+spring+bushing.TRS1& _nkw=53+oldsmobile+rear+spring+bushing&_sacat=0

Looking at your picture, you may want to also get the bolts and nuts, or even a complete shackle kit.

And possibly the correct rebuild kit for the Bendix Treadle Vac, but first let our experts confirm:

You can contact Fusick by E- mail @ [email protected] ,and they will come as near having everything you need as anyone
I know of. Hope this helps. According dipstick and pictures ,that appears to be a Bendix unit. Larry

If the body of the power steering unit is aluminum it is a Bendex if of iron it is a Moraine. A quick use of a magnet will tell you which is which... Most of your needs can be found in Fusick's catalog.... Tedd

A good investment would be to acquire a Factory Chassis Manual and a Factory Parts catalog. The Factory parts catalog will help you determine the interchange of various parts.The can also be found on eBay.

I just recently acquired a 1953 Olds Super 88, so I very much like your car!

Thank you all very much !

It's wonderful for me to feel the enthusiasm and the help to keep the cars alive

In the meantime my mail to Steve from Fusick was answered and the parts soon will be on their way to Austria to help my Olds again being able to make same fun next season.

Here a picture just some weeks old when my son took his best friend to wedding.

Thanks for helping

Rear leaf spring bushing: group 7.504; rear bushing (8 required) part number 559630; front bushing (4 required) part number 560399

Engine oil filter element: group 1.836; type PF-122; part number 5572128; as other have noted, this filter has been made by others. If the AC is unavailable, try equivalents as Wix 51121, Fram CH-106PL, Hastings 206, Autolite FL-21, Baldwin C-25-A, Gould National P-25, Deluxe WD-64, Atlas G-61, and Purolator P-124. Many of these are "long gone" but may be available from old stock.

I'm unsure what's needed for the brake or light switch subjects.

You may have difficulty obtaining all needs from one source. Rock Auto has the filter and "maybe" the spring bushings. https://www.rockauto.com/en/catalog/...il+filter,5340

Shop around. And best wishes. It's a beautiful car.

Wow. That looks like God's country. Great picture. That would make a great post card. Good luck with your Olds. Mark.

Ein wunderschoenes Bild!
Where in Austria is that?
That should be a postcard, and the owner of that hotel should pay you for it!

The pic was taken from my son before his friends wedding.

They had rented some chalets for their wedding guest at https://stmartinchalets.at/ in 5582 St. Michel im Lungau.

The "Lungau" is a small valley between high mountains that soon will get snow.

But - if someone of you wants to come and see just contact me - maybe the weather is good enough to meet you with the Olds anywhere in Austria

Wow, beautiful photos.

I myself just got a 1953 88 as a project.

Does anyone have a good source for glass? My windshield as a crack. I see a few people selling them but I was wondering if anyone has ordered any and how it turned out.

I bought one about 4 months ago for me 57 olds 98. This place is in Arizona but they have a warehouse here in Socal that i drove to and picked it up. Just hope it fits as i have not yet installed it. Going to be a while before that happens. Good luck with yours.

btw. it's funny that you guys that live in USA (where I spent the best holidays ever some years ago) talk about god's country.

Yes, it is a nice country here but you got a huge playground where you can do most things you want that our laws have forbidden.

No chance to go to a desert in a buggy , even no chance for wild camping. Too much people in too small countries to live free

That's why I often look at the pics I made while my trip in USA :

Well, you should come up here to Canada and check out the Rockies, we've got a lot of unspoiled wilderness and bears here. I'm originally from Germany and now live in western Canada. Last year I went to my "ancestral" lands of Thueringen and fell in love with the countryside there. My family left just before the Wall went up and had never been back, until I went last year.

Your point is well taken. Yes, we do have it better than some. But we don't have chalets like the one you posted. At least, i have not yet came across any.

my daughter has already been there and she has seen a bear near her car, she showed pics so I know what you mean.
A customer also told me about his holiday incl. hunting a huge wolf or flying with a crazy canadian pilot in his small plane.
Seems to be a nice and wild country also. We will see where next holidays will go to

I can't remember scaring some Austrian guy the last time I went flying, so it wasn't me...
