    How to leak check aluminum head?

    Some of the guys try polishing the aluminum heads on Auburns. In my opinion they never look finished. It is like a paint job with orange-peel.

    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,
  15. 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.

    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?
  19. 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.

    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.
