  1. Hi, Tom: Thanks so much for taking the time to respond and provide some references. Unfortunately, it appears that most of the contributors in the links know even less about the system than I do. I was able to get some information from Mr. MacPherson with the Horseless Carriage Club museum. He solved the mystery about which color hoses connect to the two nipples on the controller but I'm still clueless about what hoses connect to the three nipples on the switch. Anyway, I know the information is out there; I just have to find it.
  2. Oops. Just now seeing this response. Thank you, JJ! I've sent you a private message on the matter. If we are able to solve this mystery, I'll post the findings so that nobody else has to go through the ordeal.
  3. Greetings! I can be sure that they are not for a 1928 President State FA second series. I am going to have window cranks and interior door handles recast for my car. If anybody is interested in adding to my order, let me know. Price will depend on quantity of the order but expect a couple of hundred per handle. jimmasone@bellsouth.net
  4. Greetings! Hope everyone is staying safe and healthy throughout this public health crisis. Hopefully the end will soon be in sight. I have located a shop in Birmingham, AL who can/will reproduce the baffles in stainless steel. If anybody needs just the baffle, message me at jimmasone@bellsouth.net and I'll fill you in on the specifics.
  5. I need to know how the vacuum lines for the intermittent wiper system are routed. There are two ports on the delay modulator and three ports on the wiper switch. The lines on my Colony Park were cut when I got the car. The shop manual mentions nothing about the intermittent function except how the switch should be operated. I have been unable to find anything on the web about them except that they were notoriously unreliable. I found a wiring diagram for the wipers but there is no mention of the vacuum lines. Anybody have any insights on how to plumb the switch and governor/modulator? T
  6. Sorry but we did not discuss a price point. He's a smart, professional, respected, and well-connected source who is dedicated to the hobby. Point being, I know he is aware of the scope and scale of the demand. I don't think doing a run of these things is as easy as we might imagine. I got the impression that he needs to make some changes to the tools that he has so that the manifolds can be run on modern production equipment, thus keeping the cost under control. Here's what I would propose: Let's all be patient and let the man work in peace to do what he needs to do to
  7. Greetings! I located a gentleman in the Antique Studebaker Club who has patterns, plans, and dies for these things but he doesn't have any in stock. He plans to reproduce them within the next six months. I asked him if I could post his contact information here and he requested that I not do so because he already has a long list of customers. However, if you REALLY need one and you can wait for a while, I'll be glad to pass your contact information on to him. There will be no monetary consideration on my behalf because I'm just happy to help folks keep their cars healthy and on the road.
  8. Wow, how timely is this?! I just pulled the manifold off of the side of the engine of my mother's 1928 President FA second series yesterday. Her's is in pretty good shape but I'd like to change the distribution plate to brass or copper so that rusting is never an issue again. As I recall, there was someone in the Antique Studebaker Club who advertised in the Review that offered these things in brass or copper. When I checked this month's edition of that publication I could not find the ad. I'll check in some old Reviews and see if I can figure out who was manufacturing and selling them.
