Buick Museum - Flint, MI

The Buick Museum is located on the Sloan Museum Campus and is one of two museums located at this site.  When I visited the Museum in June 2011 it had been converted to featuring Chevrolets for the 100th Anniversary of  Chevy.  There were not very many engines on display but the ones that did had Delco-Remy components.  Of special interest was the Kettering Copper Cooled Engine with an original Remy ignition with manually set advance/retard settings.

As soon as one walks in and turns to the left the Delco-Remy designed battery and HEI are on display with components from other Allied Divisions.  I am not quite sure why the Harrison AC compressor is included as it was never, even during the Delphi era in Flint, managed or associated with the old AC Division.
 
 
 

 
 
 
 
 

On this rare and one of a kind engine from 1919-1923 is a Remy Distributor, Model 614-C and Serial Number
 

Note the manual advance/retard setup.
 
 

Delco-Remy Optispark. 
One of two DR Knock Sensors.
 

DR 126 4503 is stamped on the part.
 

This looks to be an EGR Solenoid.  Note the name Delco Remy in prominent sight for all the visitors of the museum to see.
 
 

Looks like a bad mold cavity for this casting.
 

Here is the DR Starter and Solenoid along with the second Knock Sensor.
 

The name says it all.
 

 
 
 

This should be a DR Knock Sensor but any identification was not oriented where I could photograph it.
 

The name Delco-Remy can be seen at the 3-4 o'clock position.
