    I bought 29 Studebaker dealer parts inventories over the years as a retirement project.
    I have a 105 year old, 38.000 sq.ft. building full of parts.

  1. From my service manual Scott (Lightsix)brought a trailer load of early Studebaker parts. I will try to take pictures of these hundreds of nice usable parts together with the many parts I already had from the 29 Studebaker dealer inventories. Robert Kapteyn studebaker@mac.com
  2. Which year ?

    Apparently this gear was for the magneto
  3. No problems on my Mac. These instructions on early Studebaker brakes are available on eBay.
  4. Over the years I have received many requests for early brake parts. There is a company selling reprints of Bendix service bulletins that are very helpful. https://www.ebay.com/sch/m.html?_odkw=&_ssn=parob&item=222329399553&_osacat=0&_from=R40&_trksid=p2046732.m570.l1312.R1.TR10.TRC4.A0.H0.Xstudebaker.TRS2&_nkw=studebaker&_sacat=0.

    Terry Where are you located? I have a 38.000 Sq/ft warehouse in Joliet Illinois full of pats from 29 former Studebaker dealers. Herman Hersch from Sasco would call me when a dealership was closing and the parts inventories were being scrapped. Richard Quinn also alerted me to several inventories for sale I am a hoarder who hates to see good stuff being scrapped. My son had an opportunity to buy an old car manufacturing plant built in 1908 that produced the Economy Motor Cars. I kept hauling more and more parts to save them. The cost of real estate taxes and insurance is barely covered by the sale of parts but the satisfaction and help from my friends is gratifying .I will turn 81 in October and have health issues .(stroke , triple bypass ,diabetes) but I am married to one of the good ones. She has always supported my strange hoarding. Everyone is invited to stop by and see the collection. I have some steering columns from the twenties and will look for the light switch and gear.
