  1. I need a set of new or used crankshaft bearings for a 1932 and '33 Commander Eight and 1934 Commander and President 8 cylinder engine
  2. Rick Thanks for the tip but the bearings I am looking for are for a 1932. Anyone has some new or used crankshaft bearings for a 1932 engine. I have a large stock of part for prewar Sudebakers to trade.
  3. Have patience, Most people that have knowledge of these parts are like me , old and slow. The rims shown in the first picture does not look like the one in the last picture. I assume you show the headlight without the rim https://www.ebay.com/itm/Head-light-trim-ring-Studebaker-Item-2306/272203243706?epid=5012179217&hash=item3f6093e0ba:g:CkMAAMXQ56ZR~kw8:rk:26:pf:0 Robert Kapteyn
  4. I need a set of new or used crankshaft bearings for a 1932 8 cylinder 250cu/in engine. An owner junked the bearings in his engine, thinking that new ones were widely available. He is will pay handsomely for a set of new or rebabitable bearings. Robert Kapteyn 815 212 2389 text or voice.
  5. The crankshaft balance will be different with the steel pistons.

    Rubber coupling needs identifying

    Thanks for identifying these. I specialize in Prewar Studebaker parts and every Studebaker dealer parts inventory I bought had parts for other cars in it. I have several sets of these if someone needs them. Robert Kapteyn studebaker@mac.com

    Need help identifying an antique car

    The tank on the running board is a acetylene tank for the headlights. The headlights used the gas in the tank instead of electric lights which replaced the Acetylene lights later. http://theoldmotor.com/?p=23423

    Delco switch

    Looks like a 1923/24 Studebaker Light Six.
