    Ring Gear RIvets

    The ring gears on Auburns came bolted and wired from Columbia Gear. Never had a problem.

    Buick 1930 carb

    From the books that I have, no car other than a S/C Auburn used an EX-32 with a 1 3/8 venturi. The Auburn judges all know about the 1 3/8 venturi, and look for that. The other numbers are just a curiosity. There are minor differences in these carbs, maybe the number differences have to do with that.
  3. That is really something Viv !!! Thanks for posting

    collector cars in California fire

    I lost everything in a house fire in 1982. We lost two dogs and our old family photo albums. Everything else is just stuff.

    Stupid question

    One thing about copper is it transfers heat. This is why welding and cutting tips are copper. A copper fuel line minimizes boiling fuel and vapor lock. If you are worried about work hardening, anneal the flairs I do this anyway because they seal better. In my experience the copper never work hardens in a long run, only next to the flairs. I keep them original.
  10. Nothing more or less than what the car had when it sat on the dealer show room floor.

    Starting after dormant for a year

    I use s/s sleeves in all five cylinders and DOT5 fluid. Haven't had a brake problem in 20 years.

    Wooden structures built in the woods is a recipe for disaster.
  13. Fastenal delivered four 1931 Auburn wire wheels with drums and old tires strapped to a skid from South Carolina to Minnesota for $125. You may want to check that option.
  14. A guy should be able to build a decent roadster with sidemounts out of all those parts. A Buick guy shouldn't be able to resist that. If that was Auburn, I would be camped outside your door !
