Jim I have pictures of the Cord I saw at last years West Coast Meet in Morro Bay. It was an unmolested original car. Mark Tomei was looking under it. I was asking Randy Ema about an additional copper tube extension to the oil cap area for the throwout bearing. Ron Irwin as asked by Randy was that extension original. No was his answer. I did not ask bout the Asbestos wrap of canvas but did notice it was original and the clamps were original too. I will transfer the pics from my phone to my computer to post here but... I need my daughters help.I'm not bright on picture transfers or much about computers.

Jim... Here is the car from last years west coast meet with the asbestos exhaust pipe covers. You appear to be correct. My pictures do not show a canvas wrap... But it sure looked that way last year..I'm getting old...

Bill I bought a set of original type hose clamps from Restoration Specialities. The items were selected to suit the hoses and were not supplied in a "set" to suit a Cord.

Nox Vidmate VLC When it was re-installed the guys used a worm drive clamp to cinch-up the asbestos sock on the exhaust line immediately after the manifold. That can't be correct, but what is. Is there a list I've missed for the proper clamps for the rest of what is under the hood? I thought I'd spend rainy summer days sprucing up the engine bay. Correcting the clamps seems to be a worthy project.

The hasteners were simalar to the design of the under hood wire fasteners along the radiator supports that held the horns.Stan sells them.

The correct wrap on the exhaust is an interesting topic - I have seen many Auburns with nothing, many with reproduction braided material held on by a variety of clamps, and I saw one possibly original Auburn and it had a molded material that had a wire mesh in it .

Original exhaust wrap was shaped and molded Asbestos held on with aluminum straps similar to the wire harness wraps. It was about 1/2 inch thick asbestos. Most generating stations from the past used Asbestos on all piping. It was called Asbestos pipe because it came in half the diameter of the pipe it covered. I used to remove it from main steam lines and it was well over 6 inches thick. The steam lines were under 3500 lbs of super heated steam at 1000 degrees. We were brave way back then. But not as brave as the Navy boiler romm workers in the ships. Pressure was not like what we had in the power stations but temps were as high as 1500 degrees.
