  1. Saw your response, went to the shop, put together this set-up and let her rip. The upper brass tank had a 1 1/2" hairline crack. Used propane torch and body solder, 30/70, NO LEAKS! Thank you!
  2. Thanks for the input, think I'll go with maybe 1+ lbs of pressure. You guys are a fountain of knowledge, now can someone direct me to the Fountain of Youth?
  3. How much, if any, cooling system pressure should a late 30's early 40's flathead, straight eight have. Trying a DIY radiator repair and thought I'd pressure test it with air, WITHOUT blowing it apart. Any Help?
  4. Can someone explain the timing marks on my 39 Stude 250 cu in straight 8. UDC 3-6 about 4" around the balancer, UDC 1-8 about 2" away INOP 1-8. I know UDC= TDC
  5. Thanks for the response! Happy Motoring!!
  6. Have a 1939 Studebaker 250 cu. in. 8 cylinder flathead to rebuild, not running. What is the rotation direction of the Crankshaft, from the front or rear of the engine?
  7. Thanks All for the input. Looking at the squished remains of my body mounts ( my cars, not mine ) it's hard to tell what they are made of or how thick. Was kinda was hoping all would be the same.
  8. Need to replace the body mounts on my 1939 Stude President. Does anyone know what material was used and what thickness. Thanks
  9. Thanks for the info. I saw the color on a 1940 Graham, was told it was the repaint of the original color. I love the color and want it for my 1939 Stude President.
  10. Was there a color named "Empire Maroon" used in 1939 or 1940? If so, does anyone have a chip or formula? Thanks
