I was cleaning up some of the parts to my engine and found that the engine color is very different from that of My L-29. It was very Olive green. I know it is probably like anything,there are a dozen different shades of paint for them. What does the majority do? This engine has bee apart for a very long time ( 30 years ) and I did not find either in the boxes of parts I recieved with the car.
Also have a big question as to head bolts or studs? and nuts, regular or acorn? chrome or painted?
Thanks for any information.

The engine paint on the Auburn is very olive green. Stan Gilliland at Auburn/Cord parts in Wellington, KS has the correct paint. The head should be held with head bolts painted engine color, not studs and nuts.

Ken,

I used graded bolts and ground off the grade markings. Do I understand that you do not have the old ones? If you don't have anything to start with, I can send you one, as the minimum I had to buy was not quite enough for 2 sets!

I'll confirm what Pete said on the engine color. I bought the paint from Stan also. Its pretty close to the same shade Packard used for my money.

The L-29 correct engine color is a yellow green shade and the head used studs and chrome acorn nuts with flat washers. These were also used on the 1928-30 Auburn Big 8. The Auburn Big 8 came in tan or the more common dark olive green. The fasteners are noted in the parts books. These Auburn Big 8 and L-29 engines are very dressy and looked nice. The Auburn small 8 used the O.D. color and cap screws for the head.
