All fuel components have been disassembled and cleaned in carb cleaner.New gaskets and seals have been installed and screws tightened.My only guess at this point is that I still haven't put quite enough fuel in the tank and when driving down the road the suction tube entrance is exposed to air occasionally.

Well put mote than $3 worth of gas in the thing and drive it. $7 should get you 2 miles farther before it quits.

Well. ... sounds like tank might be next to check. Is the pickip tube in good shape and going to within 1/2 " of bottom of the tank? I have seen them corrode off.

I really appreciate all the advice you guys are giving me. Oldtech,the fuel tank was removed,cleaned out and sealed at a rad shop. The pick up tube and screen are original and in perfect condition.The fuel lines are new.I will put more gas into it on Monday.
Right now we are going touring with the old car club in the '40 Packard coupe.

Just had the '25 for a 4 mile run and it didn't miss a beat.Had more gas in the tank (!) and tightened the 1 inch nut at the pickup tube.
The 2 front tires went soft on that run.It appears the fellow that restored it bought "NOS" red rubber inner tubes for it.Some NOS components aren't recommended !

Now for the first time in 92 years the '25 Buick has it's right front seat back ! The original doctor owner removed it to keep his bag handy.A friend had a jump seat from an unknown 7 Passenger touring car,from which we used the hinges and back rest.A seat base was fabricated to fit into the floor when folded forward.A local upholstery shop closely matched the fabric.It definitely wasn't designed for large people !

Anyone driving an early car these days knows that retro turn signals are a must.The '25 Buick had only one central tail lamp.I had a pair of NOS trailer tail lights that match the Buick tail light and mounted them on the spare tire bracket with the existing lamp.The green (!) stop light was a period accessory.
For the front,I purchased a pair of '25-'26 Buick cowl lamps and mounted them on the front spring bushing bolts,replacing the standard nut with a long nut so that a short 9/16 bolt could hold the especially made brackets in place.This way no holes had to be drilled.They show up nicely.
