    Sears Allstate tires

    I have a LOT of Sears Craftsman tools with a 'lifetime' guarantee. I never considered it is the lifetime of the company

    dealer nameplate

    My take on it is; he wants a nameplate from a business named "Quality" that was located in Louisiana.

    44 for me did not use hints,
  5. The company pictured speedsters with whitewalls in one brochure that I have. I think that whitewalls in most cases were dealer installed along with Buell horns, radios and heaters and other factory authorized accessories. It is my opinion that factory literature isn't always correct, as sometimes it is an artists rendition. I always enjoy finding new (to me) factory pictures. they tell it the way it was.

    horn ID help, please?

    I concur, definitely aftermarket. Little or no value.

    Help Identify Ammeter

    I have a couple of those ammeters, they can't be very rare. I did a model T for my father-in-law, I think that is where they came from. Aftermarket , probably.

    Source for red rubber cooling hoses

    No I hadn't, strange my blanket daily search for Auburn didn't pick up on it. Hummmmm. I wonder if a person would dare to put one on a running driving car?
  9. I think the color is just fine. Try shades of orange, purple, or brown.

    Auburn hubcap - any idea what year?

    Spoke wheels with knock-off's was not exclusive to speedsters. It is not unusual that the ears are ground down, because they have been excessively beat on. The side mount spares are different than the other four.

    Try Restoration supply in California. I would like to know who has red rubber fan belts.

    Auburn hubcap - any idea what year?

    1928-29 maybe 30. It is not anything newer.

    Water pump packing

    Auburn water pumps do not have a pin to retain the impeller. It is a press fit. I use Lock-tite and pien the edge of the shaft for insurance.

    From the HAMB - maybe a Chevrolet?

    I don't think the 30 was much of an improvement.

    I believe the instrument panel is different as well.

    Hubcaps, but they are pretty interchangeable.

    Clock Repair

    I know Bob, he is a professional and highly recommended. My only problem is, if he is working on your clock, he doesn't have time to do mine.

    I might be wrong, but I believe a 1930 had the same apron.
  21. Check that penny for a S under the 1909 , Then turn it over and look at the bottom . If there is a VDB there , it is your lucky day. VDB + Victor D. Brenner the designer of the one cent piece. I have found money in the radiator tank, crankcase , under and in seats and in the doors and in the gas tank. Nothing valuable.

    Pre War Cars - how fast is fast?

    A 1934 Auburn 652Y sold new for under $1,000. It was equipped with a Dual-Ratio rear differential. It could run all day long 65-70 mph. The brakes were Bendix and stopped a lot better that a 48 Chevrolet I used to have. In reality, the 34-36 Auburn sixes run better than the eights. That being said, an eight cylinder Auburn with a supercharger and the looong hood is a fun toy and will do 90+ in my experience.

    Parts values

    There is no way anyone can help you without pictures. I would suggest placing the pictures of the parts that you know the year,make & model in General Discussion . Parts that need identification in the What is it forum below. In both cases do not put a bunch of parts in one post. I understand this takes a lot of effort on your part, but that is the best way for us to help you.
