  1. According to the parts book4 big and special sixes from 1925 all share the same clutch and transmission parts.
  2. It might help if you gave dimensions.
  3. 1940 Commander Vacuum Line?

    That is the gas over flow or flooding removal tube. I don't know the correct name. It should have a check valve ball in the lower end. it allows excess gas to escape if the engine is flooded. Good luck with your commander I have a 1940 commander w overdrive. Great cruising car.
  4. stromberg ux for my 28 dictator

    The correct color of engine paint was first introduced in 1928 and used to the early 50's. It seems to match the 1928 car color spruce green. You can find examples of this color in samples on line. Maybe you can match it from there. It is what I would call a drab army green.
  5. 28 studebaker dictator finally came home

    Actually the larger chrome running lights were introduced on the Royal (higher optioned) model ge dictators while the standard models were still using the acorn style running lights. If the parts car is a type 2 sedan but has the chrome larger running lights it is a royal model. I will attach an image showing the type 2 sedans regular and royal from the 1928 Studebaker sales brochure.
  6. 1920s gauge cluster, what is it?

    Sorry the took so long. I was away at a conference. Unfortunately there is no picture of the gothic design gauges just parts listings. I will attach the page to this post.
  7. 1920s gauge cluster, what is it?

    Actually according to the Studebaker Standard six parts book they used gothic design instruments as a fifth design starting at car # 1,399,413. These are not the same gothic design gauges as used on the GE Studebaker. They are quite rare. Not saying the panel is but the oval shape is similar.
  8. 1920s gauge cluster, what is it?

    I am still inclined to say they are what they call fifth design gothic gauges for the 1925-6 Standard six. My parts book lists these but has no illustration for this type of gauges. All were in an oval.
  9. VIN 1923

    Do you have pictures of your roadster to share?
  10. 1920s gauge cluster, what is it?

    The gauge cluster on the 1925 and 1926 studebakers were in an oval like that. They changed the setup several times and varied from model to model.
  11. Original Colors

    I just ran across this page again from the 1919 to 1922 parts catalog disputing the legend that all were black. This time it is reference to wheel colors when they switch to Kelsey Hayes type No. 210 wheels. EJ light six touring cars with red wheels, EJ sedans and coupe-roadsters with blue wheels. EJ chassis with lead wheels and Export cars with grey wheels.
  12. Early 1920s Studebaker ?

    I just ran across this reference to spark plugs in the 1919 to 1922 parts book. it says that cars with magneto ignition were sometimes equipped with metric sparks plugs.18mm diameter, 1.5 mm pitch US form threads. Will attach source to this.
  13. Vintage Bumper For Ford? GM? Other?

    it looks very similar to the rear bumper on my 1928 Studebaker. I will have to check attachment to frame.
  14. metal sheathing

    It probably had both. My 1928 GE does and so does my 1922 Light six.
  15. 28 studebaker dictator

    Bill Canon's work on the GE is not complete which is understandable given all the changes in these cars. He totally misses the changes in the type 2's that were first introduced in the Royal versions. Many of these he attributes to only the type 3's. His book is good but you should study the 2 different parts books as well. The GE addendum to the Standard six parts book has many early changes to the GE series that are left out of the later Studebaker sixes parts book.
