  1. The small plates are to block off the heat riser passages. Having the heat riser passages blocked won't effect the drivability of the car once it is warmed up unless you plan on driving it a lot in cold weather. However, it may take a lot longer for the automatic choke to open fully. Blocking off the heat riser passages is done frequently on collector cars that won't be driven in really cold weather. I don't do it, but others do. Are you still using the heat riser valve? 

     

    As to the starter, are you sure that is actually a 6 volt starter? Or is it maybe a 12 volt starter?

     

    As to the RTV all over the intake gaskets, if the gaskets are new and the head and manifold surfaces are clean and smooth, all that mess should not be needed. A Studebaker V8 uses very similar gaskets, and I've never had a problem with them. I do, however, give them a good coat of Copper Coat spray prior to installing them.

    98 blackss , I was wondering if you know if that crossmember and fender supports is specific to the President only or specific to independant front suspension ? I thought that the president had a longer hood and fenders , I just got a front clip off of a 37 four door sedan and it had the independent front suspension but the hood and fenders are the same length as my 37 dictator coupe and my sedan, also the front bumper holes in the fenders are different than the ones on my dictator.

    Please note that this thread is 10 years old, and "98blackss" is no longer registered as a member of this site, so I wouldn't expect an answer from them. 

     

    But hopefully one of the knowledgeable Studebaker folks that frequent this forum can answer your question.

    I was a registered user with the SDC several years ago.  My account has been deactivated.  I am able to sign in, but not post.  It states I need to reach out to the forum administrator for re-instatement.  I have done so now 3 times in one week.  I know we reside in a world where we want instant answers, but I am wondering if there is a forum admin checking or even if my request is getting through.  A person wonders after awhile.

    If there a SDC member that can access the forum and ask someone if they have received anything from Bryan Moran?  I have a question or inquiry I would like to post on their forum.  

    Jake, my post on the SDC Forum got a response today from the main Admin. Hopefully you will hear from him soon. Here is what he said: "What happens is, if you haven’t been signed in for a long period of time (usually more than a year), the system deactivate your account and if it remains inactive for another year, deletes it. If I receive a request through the admin account to turn it back on, I can.

    i’ll look up Bryan’s account and see what I can do. Thanks for the ping."

    Jake, I posted over at the SDC Forum and specifically asked the main admin to help you. 

  5. Engine will be set up for a flywheel/clutch versus a torque converter; of course, the transmission will be different; manual will have clutch linkage; usually the rear axle ratio will be different between a manual and automatic; driveshaft length will be different. 

     

    If you need specific part info, your best bet is to obtain a Chassis Parts Manual that covers your car.

  6. Not mine, saw it on Craigslist and seems like a really great deal for someone who needs parts, especially for only $500. Located in Alvin Texas. Link: https://houston.craigslist.org/pts/d/alvin-1914-studebaker-antique-car/7709309053.html

     

    Lots of good pictures. 

     

    "1914 - ish Studebaker car chassis. Perfect for a 1910s speedster / race car project. $500 cash in person. ALVIN, TX 77511. About the size of a 1928 - 1931 Model A Ford frame"

  7. My unsolicited input:  Option 1, completely original, doesn't sound like much fun to me :). I think either Option 2 or Option 3 would be great. Cycle fenders and relocated sidemount spares is really 'dare to be different' and to me make the most impactful change while still looking like something that would have been done 'back in the day'. 

     

    Whatever you end up doing will be great, because you are very creative.
