    Looky What I Found Now!

    Bill I just happened on this topic. I viewed the Pierce article you listed years ago.I advised the writer of his error on the casting date referenced. The I is for 1929 not 28. July 9 1929. All 8 cylinder blocks were cast in Studebakers foundry. Studebaker was using the eight for the model year 1928 as 5 main but changed to 9 main starting in June of 1930. The foundry cast dating started in 1921 with A. The president 8 was in production when Studebaker acquired Pierce. The blocks look the same and will interchange as a whole. Studebaker eights changed almost every year from 28 to 33. 28 had the water pump in front of the block, 29-30 were mostly the same, 31 was a cast crank, 32 was a machined crank with bolt on counter weights, and 33 block exterior changed and looked similar to pierce. I bought a Pierce motor once just to dismantle it to see the differences. Yes there are many differences. But I would say the same group of engineers designed both motors.

    1927? Studebaker Engine

    Yep April 27th 1925. So it would be for a late 25 or early 26.
  6. Looking for a 1931 to 1933 president gas tank in useable or repairable condition.
  7. If the plunger is like the presidents there is a small hole in the middle. You could try using something like a ice pick and tap it in the hole to wedge it in. Then see if it will pull out the plunger.
