  1. I also have a bunch of old R&T. complete from mid 66 thru early nineties, open to offers, need to get them out of the house.
  2. Brad, I think it was Tenbrinks. Stan Gilliland did the engine.
  3. Hi Brad, Will be @ Auburn this year, missed only once since 1986. Look forward to seeing you two. Car will probably be there too, albeit with a for sale sign. We'll be moving to coastal Florida in a year or so, I've seen what the salt air does to Classics.
  4. 1932 Auburn 8-100A Our much loved and well-traveled Auburn is for sale. A veteran of many A-C-D Club reunions the last 20 years, if you have been there, you have seen it.

  6. Afraid there is not much to find in that regard. You should start looking for period 'Motors' or 'Chiltons' type general automotive manuals that overlap the period when these were still in the used car category. The earlier the better, for more info on removing, replacing & rebuilding things. Even then, not much about torque values to be found in old books.
  7. In hot weather, mine generally runs190 or so at a steady 55, spiking to 200 sometimes a tad more at stops. I am not running a thermostat, which while not generally thought wise, works. I had owned the car for about 5 years before I discovered this fact, and with a friend with similar car that seems to run overly hot regardless of what he tries, I decided to leave well enough alone. I am of the mind that modern fuels are at least partially responsible for the fact that many old cars seem to run hotter than they used to.
  8. Curt, Is API/GL4 in 140 OK for the Auburn/Columbia 2 speed axles?
  9. 59th Annual Stan Hywet Father's Day car show. Over 450 vehicles registered this year. Stan Hywet Hall & Gardens http://www.stanhywet.org/events/59th-annual-fathers-day-car-show
  10. Al, That is the common perception, but I use low range now & then, when I need it. Haven't had any major issues with it in 18 years.
  11. The ever faithful Auburn in the Cuyahoga Valley National Park.
  12. You might try visiting the Auburn Cord Duesenberg Club's site www.acdclub.org and looking around a while prior to asking your questions. It is generally believed that the first Auburn was built in 1901. Their last year was 1936.
  13. I use Lucasoil fuel stabilizer in everything that's going to sit. Have had really good luck with it over the years. My cars sit in a well sealed , tho unheated garage. I roll them out about once a month weather permitting and let them run for 20 minutes or so. Others might disagree, but I think it's better than just sitting. By the way, that's a nice looking Nash.
  14. I vote with Carl. Not sure how this oversize tire theme got started, but my 2 cents is that if you have clamshell fenders, you want to see a little of the fender well around them. If you plan on driving the car, it has to steer easier. I'm in the process of installing the 600/650x17 Firestones from Universal (good people) on my car. While they are nominally the same size as the Lester, my opinion is that they are a slightly larger section. This is mine on the Lesters.
  15. Matt, I do this also, I put the battery in a small plastic box in which I installed a lighter plug. Use it to plug in the cell phone from time to time too. I can bring it to the next meeting if you want a look. It sits behind the freewheeling lever in the Auburn, out of the way.
