Stan of "Auburn Cord Parts" has a kit which I used. It is real simple.

Hi,

Here are pix of 1590A in 1950. The hyperlink won't post correctly, so you'll have to copy and paste.

Perhaps some of the details may be helpful to other 810-812 owners.

Hi,

What a BEAUTIFUL break in the day's weather for the parade! 1509A and I were there, she being behind a Chevy pickup truck, me driving said truck. Many members looked over my fits-like-a-glove dual master cylinder set up for the brakes which will require no alteration in linkages and pedals, et al. It's an easy conversion if you are re-plumbing your brake system anyway.

Admittedly, it's easier when the car is disassembled (like mine) and you can work from above.

But what a beautiful break in the weather! I hope everyone enjoyed the day as much as I did!

Hi,

I have been digging through paper work from the early 1950's concerning my dear old 1509A.

Apparently my father or brother ordered a part number "E11045 bronze thrust bearing" for the transmission rebuild from Auburn Cord Parts Co.

Does anyone know if that would be the original too-thin thrust bearing?

Whatever it is, it's been in the transmission since about 1955 and hasn't worn out yet. Of course, the transmission hasn't turned yet...

Its really hard to say with any certainty but I suspect its the original thin one. Only one way to know for sure I guess. I just ordered the trans manual from the ACD museum so when it gets here I may be able to tell you what to look for. At this time I have really no idea where anything is in the trans. Bout all I know for sure is 1st and reverse gears and what each shift rod does. But what gear is what.... Nope...

Hi Gary,

I also suspect it is the thin one. However, with the light use 1509A is going to see--likely none in my lifetime and very little in my heirs--I am not sure it's worth the effort to replace it.
