  1. Research using a Prius power steering unit. It apparently works great and is an easy conversion as well as cheap. Here is information: https://www.hotrod.com/articles/150-electric-power-steering-junkyard-prius-delivers/
  2. You will get a better chance of response on the Studebaker Drivers Club forum. https://forum.studebakerdriversclub.com/forum
  3. Try searching for 37 Dictator pictures and you will probably come up with what you want.
  4. You might try Studebaker International. I was able to get the tie rod ends for my 37 President from them. Not everything is listed in their catalog.
  5. Me on my Mom's 48 Nash coupe which became the car I learned on. Me in 1966 with my 36 Studebaker coupe and a couple years later with the 37 I now have pictured at her home. The 36 is now in the Pioneer Auto Museum in Murdo, SD.
  6. I would use Justice Brothers Stop leak. They have a video showing how the product works on their website. Does not plug up the system
  7. Not mine. Appears to be in good condition https://siouxfalls.craigslist.org/bar/d/colton-studebaker/6955713495.html
  8. Is there anything special that needs to be considered when aligning a 37 President with the spring loaded tie rod end? The service manual does not mention it in the alignment instructions.
  9. That car is a beauty. I would think that as you have the measurements for the size of the speaker what you need to know is the correct electrical specifications. I think that you could search to find someone who restores radios. RadioRoy on the Studebaker Drivers Club Forum is someone you could start with. Here is a link where he responded - you can send him a personal message. http://forum.studebakerdriversclub.com/showthread.php?110478-Philco-S4627
  10. I have always loved the 1936 Dictator Art Deco Gauges so when I found a set on Ebay I snapped them up. Now, that I am for a time not able to do strenuous Studebaker work I was able to make a display for the shop. I added a couple Golden Hawk touches and some pictures of me and my 36 Coupe. It was a 36 Dictator 4A that was owned by a mechanic and it was mechanically in great condition. I bought it in 1965 when I was flush with cash working road construction for $2.00 an hour and could afford the $60 price. And just so you know I am an astute investor I sold it to the Pioneer Museum in Murdo, SD , where it still resides, for a whopping $180 two years later.
  11. Here is a picture of it installed. A drawing can be found at the bottom left on page 129 of the 1936-1946 Body Parts Catalog
  12. A friend from Australia need a trunk latch mechanism part 262591 and also the strike plate. If you have one or have a suggestion on where to get it please let me know. He found one - Stephen Allens has it. Could use the strike plate if anyone has it. But they can easily be made. Thanks everyone.
  13. Explaining exactly what the symptoms of the timing problem are would be helpful.
  14. Why not call the DMV and ask?
