  1. Oh boy Check with some of the antiquers from your local climate for viscosity but DO USE SOME WITH ZDDP I live in the SE US a hotter climate and use Valvoline VR1 Racing oil 20/50 in my 27 Commander with the Big 6. Others may use another brand that works But WITH THE ZDDP. A lot of info on this subject here. Good luck Commander Dave
  2. Best penetrating stuff I've found is 1 part acetone and 1part Auto Trans fluid, and have tried a bunch. Be careful; it could be hard on paint. Commander Dave
  3. Stude 48 Will try flaps this week. Thanks much; Commander Dave
  4. Thank you all for the info on water pump packing. Will order some.
  5. Anyone know who might have the cord/rope for around the water pump shaft on my 27 Commander. Mine's leaking pretty bad and I have tried to tighten it. Thanks; Commander Dave
  6. Hello ,every body. The North Alabama Chapter of Studebaker drivers club Is having a Meals on Wheels Orphan car show on Sept. 12, 2020 at the Senior Center on Drake ave. Huntsville Alabama . Starts at 10 am goes till 2 p.m.. $15 entry fee with door prizes and nice trophies. Will have a food truck there. Only orphan cars get trophies, but would you come out with your car just for the fun of it? People still love to see any kind of old car, you'll have fun and get to help out Meals on Wheels... Also, how about spreading the word. An old car guy thank you to you. David Bowser N.Al
  7. Hi everybody; I just installed an electric fuel pump on my 27 Comm. roadster. Do I plug up the hole in the manifold that goes to the vacuum tank? Advise please. Also still need good wheel for Commander with the lock ring or just the lock ring. Wheel is solid disc 21 inch. Thank you, Commander Dave
  8. I know, should be on the sdc web site but the forum is coming up all Chinese letters, so I'll try here. WTB for a friend, a hood release cable for his 1951 Champion 2 door. Contact Warren at 256 746 5025. Thanks; Commander Dave
  9. I've looked in vain in my records and the Review how to decipher the engine production dates. This is for my 27 Commander. On the block is g-8-31. the engine # is37565. Any assistance would be greatly welcomed. This time I'll write it down in a couple of places. Sincerely; Commander Dave
  10. Thank you every one of you for helping out. Ordered one of those on e/bay
  11. George; Thanks, The tank I have is 5.5 inches across the top and what appears to be "25 g" on model #. the 25g is stamped a little high on the raised up area and my reading is most likely right. Don't know if it helps but patent date is 2/14/1911. p.s. camera is broken, will have to get a new one soon.
  12. On my 27 commander's vacuum tank where the gas inlet goes into the tank has snapped off. I've already epoxied it once and now need a new top section, new tank, or go to an electric fuel pump. We have a local show coming up May 2, so time is of the essence . Anybody have a Stewart vacuum tank out there or can you recommend a good electric fuel pump? Sincerely ; Commander Dave
