Curt, his rivets go into the case and will have a spiral drive screw just like we have on the 1935 for the Startix plate on the steering column

I actually have had good luck reused all my original drive screws - get under them with a really sharp miniature wire clippers and start prying (keep in mind they are spiral so do not pry out all at one time)

The Bijur will have a split rivet.

You may have to enlarge the wholes a little in the repro plate - I do with a miniature file as they are pretty delicate. I also put a little double sided tape under the plate - keeps them from rattling if by accident you do not get them to sit tight. Also pre arc them prior to installation (they may be reproduced flat, but tour generator and are curved.

Curt does a beautiful job stamping plates :)

Also, If doing AACA, CCA, or ACD, you should paint the base of the spark plug with satin black (they were originally gun blued or something similar in finish)

Thanks John for all the information, I can use all the help as I am new to Auburns.
Question; There are big differences in prices on EBay for the plates, some have a painted split and others are solid where the numbers go. Are 6V different from 12V?

When purchasing tags be sure they are embossed. Contact Vivian LaVine in Indiana, LaVines are in the ACD directory. The dipstick, oil filler tube, and cap was green from the factory. the dipstick should have an 'S' on the top. The oil filter has a Pur O Lator decal. Note, the oil filler tube and cap are incorrect on the oil filter pix. That is also a 35-36 engine.

I found a pix of the original oil filter that was on my 898

The bitterness of poor quality remains long after the sweetness of low price is forgotten.

You have to admit that the black filler tube and the cad plated oil cap have a nice contrast to them, even though they may be incorrect

You are right Mark, it does look good ! So does chrome. When we do these cars, we can build them any way we want, after all they are our cars. I wouldn't have mentioned it, but Richard seems to be trying to build his car as authentic as possible. If he is planning on getting his car judged, it is a couple less checks on the score card.
