Hello folks

I just started fixing some details at a 1923 Duesie A, possibly somebody can give me some suggestions.

1. The camshaft ist slightly worn and I would like to have the camshaft regrinded. The Roller tips of the rocker arms are pitted, but within measurements. Could this become a problem with the newly grinded camshaft?
The rollers seem to be not removable. Any suggestion for renewing the rollers?











2. The trim ring of the instrument gauge panel is multiple broken, part is made of Potmetal (by Stewart Warner). Any ideas besides adhesive bonding?
Probably this item was used at other cars too?






Thanks

Andreas

The instrumentation is Warner brand and was produced prior to the merger with Stewart. As for replacement instrument cluster bezels, I believe you will be left with having one machined or nowadays 3D printed. Old pot metal of that nature does not survive, even if NOS on the shelf.

Most likely the instrument ring has been reproduced - my experience with Auburns is that when I have a problem there are also plenty of other people who have had the same problem prior to me. Start calling owners and shops who have done A's

Also, this is not the best forum to ask your questions - you need to be under a titled Duesenberg forum.
