  1. A appreciate thank you for all who have taken time to reply to my request. Dave
  2. I OWN A 1929 COMMANDER MODEL FD. I PURCHASED IT WITH OUT THE IGNITON KEY. THE ON OFF LEVER WORKS GOOD. I HAVE TAKEN IT TWICE TO A CERTIFIED LOCKSMITH AND HE HAS FAILED TO MAKE A KEY FOR IT. SO I AM LOOKING TO PURCHASE A NEW CYCLINDER WITH KEY OR AT LEAST ONE THAT WORKS. ALSO INSTURCTRIONS ON REPLACING THE CYCLINDER. ANY HELP OUT HERE?
  3. I need to purchase TWO side mount tire locks for my 1929 Cammander. Dave dpkroeges@aol.com
  4. I went to start my 1929 Commander ant the lever of the ignition switch just broke. Pot metal does not last forever. I am hoping that one out there in Studebaker land would have one to sell me. thanks for your consideration . Dave dpkroegs@aol.com
  5. How is this handle attached to the opening mechanism? They were various methods. Could you show a photo?
  6. I have restored a 1929 Model FD an eight cylinder model. I have had problems, as parts are not easy to find. However by posting ads here and in the THE ANTIQUTE STUDEBAKER REVIEW. I have located them. Other 1929 owners are of great help. It is a rewarding experience to restore a car not running and get it back on the street. Good luck. Dave
  7. I think you are started in the right direction. Using this forum to obtain parts was useful for me when I started to restore my 1929 Commander. I also join the Antique Studebaker club and meet some great owners of 29 commanders and I placed wanted ads in the magazine. Yes, please post a photo of your car. Dave
  8. Thank you for your post and information. I got some linings at Hershey. Dave
  9. I decided to replace my brake linings so four questions 1. Where can I obtain new linings or trade in my shoes for rebuilt brake shoes ? 2. What is the allowable inside dimension of the brake drum ? 3. I have steel brake drums on my car is there a minimum wall thickness allowed on the drum ? 4. Are cast iron drums available ? Thanks for your comments/ Dave email dpkroegs@aol.com
  10. Mark , Thanks for your reply. Would you perhaps know were I could obtain another lock, and the two caps that go over the bolt? I have been trying to find them for some time. Dave
  11. I have two uside mount tire security arms that prevent the tire from being stolen, the sliver one is for a 1929 Commander . Can any help identify the one in black? it has a different profile but it does fit my Commander. could it be a different year or model? thank, Dave
  12. I need door sills for my 193 Cadillac LaSalle four door sedan. pleae repy to dpkroegs@aol.com
  13. I need a side mount tire locking bracket or arm that holds the tire in the wheel well of the fender. and the locks associated with this bracket. I have one and it has a number casted in it. the number is 13952. there is a prefix which looks like the letter "A". Can any one tell me if there are a right and left brackets or are they the same for both sides. I also would like the original factory windshield wiper arms. I would like to show my car, however I need these parts to make it look like it was delivered from the factory. Thanks Dave email dpkroegs@aol.com
  14. Cliff, the advice on not using an electric fuel pump is good advice. A friend of mine had one on his '53 Cadillac. He had a wreck while driving it and the electric fuel pump kept pumping. It added to the fire which ensued. dave
