1933 8-105 Front Axle was created by DONALD.ELMER
During the restoration of my 1933 8-105 Salon, I uncovered bit of evidence that suggests that the car had an encounter with a solid object before I acquired it. I think it is possible that the car underwent repairs to the front end. Last summer for example, during an attempt to bring the toe-in to spec, the tie-rod ran out of travel; it appeared that the tie-rod on the car was too long by a couple of inches. I lopped off an inch or so on either end and re-threaded-- this allowed the toe-in adjustment to spec. During that time, someone told me that the 1933 12-cylinder is wider that the 8-cylinder, so I began to wonder if the front axle was the original; perhaps a repair included the replacement of a damaged 8-cylinder axle with a 12-cylinder.

Since then, I've noticed several other irregularities: right now, I am unable to connect the Bijur junctions on the king-pins; it's impossible to screw in the Bijur fittings due to the placement of the brake tubing. The front axle on the car has a stamped serial number --- D 1046. I am wondering if this number corresponds to 8-105 axles?

If anyone can provide information on this, I would be appreciative.

I am not sure about salon Auburns but on std Auburns the difference between 8 and 12 was the dia of the king pins; 3/4" vs 7/8". I would think the width of the axle would be the same.
Information from my memory so it is suspect.

I have a variety of so called Auburn Tie Rods (of which one is supposed to be a V-12) - if someone is looking for a V-12 rod, please let me know what I should be looking for and perhaps i will be your lucky day.

I believe the part number for the 1933 8-105 front center axle is "D 1046" . The front center axle on my 1933 8-105 is "E8 1807" (see picture #1) and the configuration of this center axle does not permit the installation of a king-pin Bijur fitting because of the placement of the brake hose (see picture #2)

For several other reasons, I think my car sustained some serious front-end damage before I acquired it in the mid-1960s. I am trying to figure out if the front center axle was replaced with a front center from a different model or year. Can anyone provide information on this question?

Can you post a pic of the whole axle looking from the front?
