  1. Got it. So I’ll check ignition first. I will replace the points. It has the original coil and I don’t know where to get a replacement. Thanks. nate
  2. Hi All, What should cylinder compression be on a 1937 dictator with the six cylinder in it. I believe these are 218.8 ci engines. I checked mine today by pulling one plug at a time. I didn’t have throttle or choke open. I got between 85 and 90 psi with one cylinder at 80 psi. The car runs rich but my carb is likely out of adjustment. It runs good, but at idle has a miss occasionally. I didn’t check timing yet. I am trying to decide if my original 72000 mile engine is tired enough for a rebuild. Should a leak down test be done next? Nate
  3. Hi all, I am working on my 37 Dictator 5A. It has the factory installed under dash heater by the passenger side as was common for the era. It has a ceramic rheostat type switch to adjust the heater fan speed. All works as should, but the back of the switch gets hot to the touch. I don’t know if it’s due to original wiring, poor ground, or just the way it is. Was the switch designed to get hot (since it is ceramic)? I did run a redundant ground from the dash to the body. I have a all new wiring harness for the car but the heater wires are original because no one makes replace
  4. Thank you, Chris. Let me know what you have and we can email or call. You wouldn’t happen to have a front license plate bracket would you? nate
  5. Pretty much everything. I have the housings and chrome rings, but the original owner put sealed beams in and so I need reflectors, all the springs and clips, and sockets and lenses. What do you have? Thanks. nate
  6. Hi 37S2de, I am interested in contacting you about some 37 Studebaker headlight parts. Can you message me or share a good contact email? Or just your name and I can look you up in the Stude roster. Thank you. My cell number is Seven One Seven 587 THree six seven three. Thanks. Nate Kapp
  7. I did try that, but I don’t think he’s seen it. So I’m hoping this draws his attention. Thanks, nate
  8. Hi Guys, I am restoring a 1937 Studebaker Dictator sedan and am over on the Nash forum looking for headlight parts. The headlights were converted to sealed beam a long time ago and all the original parts were lost. I found the glass lenses, but need everything else. Do any of you have the springs, clips, reflectors, and sockets for the Riteway headlights? Thank you. This style light was used on Hudsons, Nash, Studebaker, as well as other makes of the mid to late 1930s. Thanks. Nate

  10. Hi Tom, I'd like to talk to you about the 37 headlight parts, what is the best way to contact you? You can send me a private message or just your last name and I can look you up in Turning Wheels directory? Thanks! Nate
  11. Hi guys. Thanks for the info. 37S2de, I’ll send you a message. I’d love to talk! nate
  12. Hi guys, I have a 1937 Dictator with aftermarket sealed beam headlights. I’d like to restore them back to the original lenses, etc. I’m looking for the guts of the lights. Springs, sockets and reflectors are most important. I have found 2 lenses and one reflector. Does anybody have parts? I know Plymouth and some other brands used the same Riteway lights. Thanks. nate
