    I Think This Is A Studabaker?

    Time for a good old fashion duel at ten paces. Then there is no explanations needed! (a joke)!

    I Think This Is A Studabaker?

    I don't know Studebaker very well, the only one I briefly owned was a 1951 Starlite coupe.

    Use Of Premium Fuel

    I think auto rubber parts were already made ethanol safe by 2002, It is the older cars, old and new lawnmowers, chainsaws, & etc having trouble.

    Use Of Premium Fuel

    I think the detriment to rubber parts in fuel systems by ethanol precipitated the need for the Govts. cash for clunkers due to the fire hazards and uptick in vehicle engine fires.

    1928 Buick Standard Marvel carburetor

    I don't know your carb but I would suggest to make sure the float needle is sealing in the seat and the seat is properly set in the carburetor. If so you should make sure the float is not filling with gasoline or hanging up on its pivot. Don't be concerned with the vacuum tank, it is doing its job or there would be no flooding. I would set the float level as specified in the manual. Good luck and give us followup.

    What is this brass unit with ignition points?

    I guess I missed a swap meet. Don't recognize the part offhand.

    Waterpump woes

    If you found kits you might as well just get one and do the rebuild on your pump.
