  1. 29 erskine engine rebuild

    As you may have found out already, in order to remove the crankshaft you will need to remove the rear main filler block. This is a die-cast piece and will likely come out in pieces and you'll need to have a new one made. Hopefully someone out there can provide the dimensions or a replacement part.
  2. reach rod end for 36 Dictator Coupe

    I also have 2 NOS Studebaker tie-rod with ends, for conventional front axle, part number 180997, fits models; A, 1A, 3A, 5A, J5. Also one NOS Studebaker tie-rod with ends, part number 190715, for model; 6A, 3C. This has one end with the spring-loaded tie rod end. Also one NOS Studebaker reach-rod, no part number, but appears to be Type E in the parts book illustration (see above) which would fit model 1A. Can send photos for any of the above. Send a PM if interested.
  3. reach rod end for 36 Dictator Coupe

    In looking at the 1940 Studebaker Parts Catalog it appears your "original" spring loaded end is part number 199210 which is listed for a Model 5A (1937 Dictator), shown in the parts book as "Type G". According to the parts book these were sold as a complete unit (note the non-threaded end of the shaft). The other part shown appears to be 188061 for a Model 3A (1936 Dictator), which was a different design and is noted as "Type F" in the parts book (note threaded end), these units were of the type that could be disassembled and the various components purchased separately. Attached is a scan of the parts book page. Related to this I bought a bunch of older Studebaker parts a few years ago and it include the NOS spring loaded tie rod (or reach rod?) end shown in the photo below. It had no part number, so I'm not sure what it fits, however it looks very similar to your original end, however the shaft appears to be a little longer. If it's something you might be interested in send me a PM.
  4. I have a Dodge-Fargo Trucks Parts List from 1938 covers Dodge models MC thru MH and Fargo models FE1 thru FE6 and a Truck Shop Manual from 1937 covers series M & FE. Covers have some soiling and tears at the binding cover, contents are good (see photo's below). Both are published by Chrysler Corporation of Canada. $50 each, send a PM if interested.

  6. Parking Brake

    The 1927 Studebaker Service Manual indicates that a "jig" be used to hold the brake lining to the brake band when installing new brake linings on externally contracting brakes, however it appears the Dykes Manual (copied above) provides an alternative method of installing the lining without the use of a jig. In the situation above I'd question the need to replace the lining, which involves a fair amount of work to remove, disassemble and reline the parking brake. I'd suggest first trying to adjust the parking brake as outlined in the service manual. The old brake lining material may appear brittle, but it's likely an asbestos composite material which was brittle to start with. Keep in mind this is not the service brakes and would get limited use as a parking/emergency brake anyway.
  7. Odd Speedometer Cable???

    Within the transmission housing there should be a speedometer drive gear and a pinon (gear) which is driven by the drive gear. It's the end of the pinon that the speedometer cable slides into. The pinon (gear) is typically made from a fibrous material, similar to the material used for camshaft timing gears. This fiber pinion gear being softer is considered sacrificial should something freeze up in the speedometer or speedometer cable, so it's possible that whatever caused the cable to break could also have stripped the pinon gear. You should check the pinon to see if it's stripped. Also I tried to look up the pinon and speedometer cable part numbers for your car to see if it interchanged with other years or models, however I learned something new, Studebaker didn't list parts or parts numbers for anything related to the speedometer prior to 1932, indicating in the parts books prior to that time to go to the speedometer manufacturer (typically Stewart-Warner) for parts and service.
  8. Parking Brake

    Sorry, I couldn't find an article about replacing the brake lining specific to your car, however there were articles for a similar (but not identical) lining replacement on earlier cars. The problem is it requires a special jig to form the lining to the band and finding one of those jigs today would be difficult. Perhaps someone else could chime in as to how it should be done.

    The first attachment has the instructions which tell what the letters in the illustration are for, however I can't seem to open it. If you can't open it let me know and I can email it to you.
  10. Parking Brake

    Attached are the parking brake adjustment procedures from Book 2 of the Studebaker Service Manuals (with supplements). These are pretty much the same as given above, but thought the illustration might also help. studebaker brake adjustment.pdf studebaker brake adjustment1.pdf

  13. Wiper motor needed

    Sorry about the reflection in the photo. The motor was not damaged and worked fine. It has been sold, but keep your eye on eBay and Model A sites as there should be more of these motors out there (they made nearly 5 million Model A's).
  14. Wiper motor needed

    I have a 1931 Model A Ford deluxe roadster that I have been working on the last couple years. The Trico wiper motor that came with the car was incorrect for a deluxe roadster and I recently replaced it with a chrome plated motor. The wiper motor that was removed is shown below and looks very similar to the motor in your photos above. The main difference is the length of the on/off "pull" handle, which is shorter on the motor below, however I believe these can be switched out by removing the two cover screws. The distance center to center of the mounting ears is just under 4-3/4 inches and the shaft length is 1-15/16 inches. For future reference the wiper motor below I believe is a Trico replacement motor that could be used on the 1930/31 Model A "Standard" roadsters and phaetons (painted black versus chrome on the deluxe models). Anyway if this is something you are interested in let me know.

    Any chance you can post a picture of the wiper motor(s) you are looking for?
