  1. Sounds like you ar running an electric fuel pump......so now you need to regulate it to 3psi or less
  2. I went to the Oklahoma City Glidden. My wife and I managed 3 days of the tour and went home. My car did fine and had no issues. I know that a great deal of planning and hard work went into this tour. But having a "metropolitan" tour in a "town" of almost 600,000 population turned out for us to be very stressful and not fun fighting the traffic. We enjoy back road touring where we can run our car without the constant stop and go traffic lite and stop signs we had to do on this tour.....
  3. After reading the comments to what I have said about the CCCA after being a member for near 30 years only one guy seems to get it .....thanks Dave......... Dan Dinsmore (studepeople)
  4. Well after 30 years in the "Great CCCA" I will not send in my money to renew. I went to alot of meetings over the years to try to get this club to think about keeping it's function prices down but have only met with lip service. My wife and I have been on over 15 Caravans ,several Grand Classics and National meets so we have tried to support this club. But I don't believe this club is supporting the average rank and file member (non-rich) and probably never has. We send in our dues that support this club which are twice what other National Clubs pay. We pay a hefty fee to have the right then to pay another hefty fee to go on a National Tour (Caravan). No other club does that that we are awhere of ...... So I say enough. I miss all the old timers who have passed away from the Caravans. They made them so special. I miss having Beverly as Editor, for she really cared about showing all aspects of this club and hobby, not just the "top teir"...........Member 2510.......done

    I am working on a Stromberg UUR-2 carb and really have no literature as to doing diagnosis on this carb. I have some for UU-2 but there are many differences in these carbs. I would like to purchase reprints from someone on this subject. 417-634-0660 Dan.........Thanks :confused:
  6. Look under Pierce arrow in Ebay ......I saw some correct pull straps there for sale.......
  7. Ed ; I could use some help on a couple of parts I need for a UUR2. The shop you deal with do they have a web site or an address and number I can get in touch with them? I could truly use the help.......Thanks
  8. Now that I have seen a couple of photos ........the wheel base seems short to me....measure center to center on the front to back wheels and see what the wheel base is .It does have a Cadillac V-8 under the hood correct? The engine no. will tell you something........
  9. And yes I saw a picture of a 1940 Four door 60 special with leather top and laundel Irons .It said they were executive ordered about ten cars between 1938 and 1941.......
  10. I got out my Cadillac book written by Maurice Hendry. In it he lists the models of 6019's. for 1940 number of what was manufactured. 6019S sedan 4 Door (4,242 )...6019SA Sunroof Sedan 4 Door (230).....6019F Imperial Sedan (110) and 6019AF Imperial Sedan Sun Roof (3)....I see no Two Doors listed....... 6019 is a four door semi-custom model line..... Many pictures would be great as it could shine a light on this car........
  11. :Bill Thankyou for your persective and information. We are in the southern central area of Mo. near Branson. An interesting area to visit but not as an "OLD" car tour (not flat ). Have been looking at central Mo. along the Missouri river. We have a local tour with the KC group to eastern Kansas . More areas to look at........Dan Dinsmore
  12. I have not been on an VMCCA Nickel tour before and was wondering when the last one was put on and by who. My wife and I are kicking around the idea of putting one on. It would be great to get the insight and avoid the pitfalls from other tour chairpersons. I understand that less challenging tour routes(Flatter) and less miles with alot of interesting stops would be welcomed on such a tour. Five days put on during the week ? We are all ears..........dan & gracie

  18. To Justin: The roadster is on it's way to California. He got a very good deal. Now as for the Sedan I guess Justin you are not so interested as to just call. You might be surprised on how afordable a "Full Classic" might be. There's more information and pictures in the Studebaker forums........
  19. Has anyone placed an air conditioning unit into a VW beetle or CarminGhia ? Is there enough room ? I think it would be great if possible........
  20. 1930 President Fe State Sedan. This car has had a total restoration on all parts of this car. This car has Wilton wool carpet and broad cloth interior costing over $8,000.00 . The wire wheels have been all powder coated all new stainless custom made from Dayton Wheel spokes and nipples ,put together by a wheelwright. They are near perfect. New radiator core and all exterior parts all rechromed . Engine totally gone through with valve seats installed . This car has the late model iron body UU-2 carb . This car has 3.51 gear set in the rear end installed and all new bearing and seals in the rear end installed. This car can safely cruise at 60-65 miles per hour after hour . No one spends this kind of money on these Sedans as I have . You could not restore a car today for the money I have put into this car. I have owned this car for 27 years and have loved to drive it , but now it just sits as we no longer have the tours available to drive it as much now. If interested in hearing more call me 417-634-0660...Dan
  21. To Mr. Kerns: Please call me I would love to tell you all about this great car......Dan
  22. Make me an offer I can't refuse.........Studepeople.........417-634-0660
  23. This is an original car with an old repaint. Runs well and I and my wife have used this car on several VMCCA tours. Could be driven any where . It was in long time storage before I bought it so I had to fix mechanical issues caused by not using the car. Brakes and fuel ,carb issues . Now the car is a fun to drive. It has good tires on the car. I need the garage space so I really would like to sell this car. It is located by Branson Mo. Dan 417-634-0660 $ 11,000.00
  24. This 1941 is originally from California and spent most of it's time there owned by a dentist. He used it mostly with the Cad club . I bought this car from a young man who's father gave him the car. It had sat in storage since 1993. I had to fix the fuel system, brakes (all Parts) and some wiring to get this car on the road again in 2008. My wife and I have used this car on VMCCA tours and had alot of fun with this car. This car could be driven any where but as it still has the orginal gear ratios, so not at 70 plus miles per hour on the freeway for long. This is still an original car with an old repaint. Radio does not work . Has good tires on the car . I now need the garage space so I want to sell this car. This car is a little North- East of Branson Mo. Dan 417-634-0660 $11,000.00
