Interesting, I could have this wrong, but ..... I can shoot a photo of my unrestored 852 Phaeton (not heading that way for a week or so though) and certain it has Zerk, we have Zerk on the 851 Phaeton (which is restored over multiple years of time/ownership but its an 85% + nut and bolt correct car, and the 852 I am restoring has Zerk, plus I have over time had a variety of tie rod parts and everything has Zerk. Also, there are a variety of other fittings on the car and they are Zerk not allemite, We had allemite on the 1931 Cadillacs. My guess is someone changed out the Auburn, but they changed them out with outdated technology that really works better than nothing, but is still close to nothing.

John, I think you are correct. I have an 851 with zerks and another one with allemites. I figured I'd check to make sure. A picture would be nice as i think the shape of zerks changed a little over the years.
Thanks!

I agree that Zerk fittings have an evolution in design. I will probably be another week or so before heading over to storage building.
