  1. Thanks to all who responded. To be honest, I never planned to sell them individually, as others stated, it is way too much time & effort for limited return. Was hoping someone in a position to market them might go a buck or 50 cents a piece. Come and get them, and they are yours for free. They comprise three boxes approx. the size of a case of copier paper reams. We are trying to get the hose cleaned out for sale, so if no interest, they will go to recycling next week.
  2. Hi Terry. Am looking to get rid of the entire lot, I would be quite happy to get them into the hands of someone who wants them.
  3. For sale: Collection of Road & Track magazines mid 1966 thru early 90s. Complete for many years beginning in 1967. Coverage of Grands Prix, road tests of mostly sports & imports, lots of technical articles. ***Not sure where to list this: Editor, please let me know if this is not appropriate here.......cars & or car parts seemed a stretch. Most are in very good condition, make offer. Located in NE Ohio, prefer local pickup only, but open to suggestions.
  4. Felix said that in the shipping of parts to Broken Arrow, they got a few non-ACD items, and we know from personal experience that the cache in Auburn had a few ACD items in their mix. Makes perfect sense.
  5. There used to be a Hupp Graham parts depot in Auburn Indiana, a little south of the museum, before the RR tracks, a remnant of the A-C-D Auto museum's former life. I was in the place a few times in the last 30 years. I believe it was about 10 years ago that the business finally closed up. Would like to think those parts (they still had a building full) ended up somewhere. Perhaps others in the Graham ranks will know something. Good luck.
  6. 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.
  7. Brad, I think it was Tenbrinks. Stan Gilliland did the engine.
  8. 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.

  11. 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.
  12. 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.
  13. Curt, Is API/GL4 in 140 OK for the Auburn/Columbia 2 speed axles?

  15. 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.
