1935 Studebaker truck grease caps

Recommended Posts

Has anyone mint condition grease caps used on the 1935 Studebaker ACE 1T2-series trucks? Or re-manufactured versions? I have some poor versions available myself...see picture.

 

Thread size roughly 3-1/16". Caps was used earlier from mid-20s on the Studebaker cars, but with much smaller size threads.

 

Thanks :-)

This looks like the cap used on the wood wheel cars from the 1920s.

 

That is correct. While the design is very much the same, the trucks used a larger thread base due to the larger bearing cups size. I have seen re-manufactured caps, unfortunately not for sale, but installed on a few trucks. The original material is fairly soft aluminium, great for durability, not very great due to the softness. They did or do tend to slip the threads....

Tom,

 

I am interested. Can you send a few pictures to my email, and confirm the threads size to be the magic 3.125"-16 UN?

 

My email: studebakerkid2000@yahoo.no

 

Thanks!
