  1. I sent you a PM about the cap. Thanks, John
  2. Welcome Dennis to the forum! Do you have a threaded cap that is 2"? I bought one recently on ebay for my '25 Stude and it was 2 1/2" like yours which does not fit my car. Thanks.
  3. He needs to turn the lights off before the battery goes dead!!!
  4. Probably best to call these "demountable rims" so as to not freak out people about the dangerous later model split rims. I replaced all 5 tires on my Stude having never done it before. You learn what works as you go along and I find that tire irons and screw drivers are helpful also. I bought a rim spreader on ebay and it was invaluable when changing these.
  5. I bought a stainless bolt kit for my 413 Chrysler engine and they suggested that each bolt should be installed with some anti-seize compound. Not sure why however.
  6. I found that most of these sites use Buy-it-Now so I started listing just the "Auction" format and went from 8000 or so in Studebaker to just 650. I love the parts available for the 1936 Avanti!Yikes!!
  7. I could use one with 2 3/4# ID with 16 TPI. Thanks!
  8. This is what happens when they run out of parts in Cuba!
  9. I love how they get every Camaro , Mustang and Corvette shown and go to a commercial when the scarce cars show up(last time Kaiser Darrin).
  10. I found it quite enjoyable demounting and then mounting five new tires on the Stude....I lie. But I put the adjustable arms one on each side of the split and lined up the straight arm directly opposite, seemed to work ok that way.
  11. If you can rescan them at say 600 dpi and then convert them to jpeg format they will work better.
  12. Here is an old photo of my aunt on a Willys....hope it will help.
  13. What is that bar that goes across the back window? That isn't a stock item is it?
  14. My dad had a 1967 Plymouth sport fury with a 383 2bbl auto with 2.73 rear end. We took it on our honeymoon and got over 20 MPG cruising I-5 through Wash-Or-California. It was a big car and would go 100 with very little noise...almost got us in trouble being it had no cruise control!
  15. Nice work Vintman! What program did you use to fix the photo?
