Thanks Mark. That was a long road. Sometimes, just some times you can make chicken salad out of chicken SH--T

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

Hi,
Touching base after a good while of being absent from the forum.

I have been using the Auburn a bit, and getting ready to paint and reupholster it, but before I do it, I want to get it running greatly and find it's missing parts.

The engine sounds great and works almost fine, but it does not give the full power it should. My mechanic went over everything and he is now betting on installing a new set of ignition components, so I am looking for distributor cap, cables, points, condensor and coil, and while at it, I want to find the metallic cover that houses the cables over the spark plugs.

Any leads as to where to find them?

I also need interior door and window handles plus an exhaust cut out valve.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Victor

Hi Victor, good to hear you are still enjoying the car. I am knee deep into my 1931 Coupe replacing all the wood. Spark plug wires and ends look up Brillman on Google. They are a Tractor restoration supply company. Lots of product that crosses over. Restoration Supply in California is got too. I have some of the metallic covers as well. Caps I only have one spare that I need to keep for my five cars. I might also have interior door and window handles. If I dont Peter Kelly in Ontario should have some.
Good Luck
Kirk
