  1. Jorge, that is terrible I don't know how they could loose something that big. If you have one of each part you may have to have them cast out of bronze. Then you would need to metal finish for ft and then chrome them. I don't know where you would find them, you can try Dave Babcock first. Good Luck and best wishes, Tim. PS. Jorge I went to the International wet in Mansfield Ohio just three eels ago and talked to several vendors, no one had any Rockne parts. Did you ever here anything from the fellow that knew someone who had Rockne parts for sale. I haven't seen anything more about them on the forum.

  3. Does anyone know if there is someone that restores these, I have one on my 1933 Rockne that the porcelein is chipping out of the cloisonné. I would like to possibly get it restored.
  4. John, I made my own bracket out of stainless steel with 2 stainless set screws. Bought the mirrors off of eBay and assembled them. I had to make longer hinge pins and I put mirrors on both front doors.
  5. I am also interested in what might be available. I am interested in front brake cables and front brake shoes. 419-334-3172 or email me thoffs@woh.rr.com.
  6. I have adjusted the eccentric's and the turnbuckles and I do not have enough take up to activate the front brakes. I think after the car show season is over I am going to disassemble the front brake drums to see if I have everything put together right. I put all new brake springs on all four wheels a couple of years ago, but since I restored the car I have never had front brakes. It stops but I drive it with great caution.
  7. Any help or contact information would be appreciated. Thank you.
  8. Need to find and purchase a pair of front mechanical brake cables for my 1933 Rockne 4 Door Sedan Deluxe. Evidently mine are stretched and their is no adjustment left and as a result I don't have any front braking. I hope someone has these cables.

  10. I was able to find and purchase (2) of them #510068 from Gaskit City.
  11. Yes it is, gasket is just a ring that slides down over the baffle. Should be approximately 1.625" I.D. X 2.00" O.D. X .060" thick. If you have them I will take two, give me a phone number and I'll call you with a credit card number. Thanks Tim.
  12. Like the bumper bolts and door hinge pins, if you have access to a lathe or contact a machine shop and have them made out of stainless steel. I made set of front door hinge pins and brackets for my Rockne so I could install side mirrors.
  13. I do not have a parts book or a parts listing for my 1933 Rockne, but I had bought a manifold heater valve gasket from Custom Antique Parts. I believe they are no longer in business do to health reasons. His part number was #510068, I don't know if this was his numbering system or Studebakers. Any help would be appreciated. Thoffs.
  14. Looking for a ring seal that fits over the baffle on the heat deflector insert that bolts into the middle top of the exhaust manifold. Please advise where I could purchase one.
