1923 Studebaker Tourer - Bosch Shock Absorbers

Recommended Posts

Hi all

Wondering if anyone with 1923 Studebaker EM Light tourer has knowledge of Bosch Magneto (USA) Shock Absorbers.  There were originally on our Australian Colonial, but were taken off by previous person.  We now have obtained some, we know these were an aftemarket extra, we are lucky to have photos of the car in the 20's which show these shock absorbers, given to us by the original family owners, so no doubt they were on.

 

Would appreciate any photos of brackets/mount, what it looks like and how there were mounted.   

 

Thank you, look forward to hearing from someone.

Thank you for that site but there is no information on what the mount between the shock to the rail .  On the back of the shock there is  two hex nuts locked together on a 1/2 inch threaded axel The shock would rotate when the move . I think there must be some mount to hold the two nuts and lock to the car ???? Thanks for the help ,Mark

Hi 

 

I have a 1922 Light 6 with these shock absorbers

 

i will take some photos of the mountings etc. in the next few days and post them so you can see the detail.

 

i will also take some measurements so you could manufacture some replicas.

 

i have a mass of spare parts and may have some mounting plates available. I have 2 spare engines and 3 gearboxes plus a miriad of other parts.

Thanks, Simon, that would help to see the originals, also do you have two more for the back. On the original, it had Bosch in large letters and the two I have Bosch is in small letters. Is there a difference in age
