  1. I did not get there. It’s been a long time since I was at an international meet! I’m hoping to get to South Bend this coming year. I need to call you for advice on wiring up turn signals. Once I get to that point, I’ll give you a call! Thanks for the advice, I’ll check the insulation. nate
  2. Tom, I replaced my entire harness, but I still have the original switch and armored cable to the cap on the coil. Am I ok to continue running that original setup? The wiring under the dash was in good shape for 80 years old, and I’m guessing there is not much movement inside the armor to damage the insulation. thanks, Nate
  3. Hi all, On my 37 Dictator, it has the grease cap at the water pump. I did buy water pump grease at a restoration company. What is the method for filling the cap? Is it as simple as filling the cap with grease and then screwing it on? I don’t see any springs or anything on the inside. I also don’t want it to fall off while driving. Thanks. nate
  4. Hi All, Can anyone tell me how the heater hose was routed on a 37 Dictator with the factory heater under the dash? If I am correct, the hose to the water pump just rests on the passenger fender inside the hood side. Any factory pictures would be amazing! Thanks all, Nate
  5. Thanks Gary, I’m actually calling restoration stuff today so I’ll add that washer to my order. If I have the carb rebuilt in the future, I’ll use Dave T-bow. He does excellent work. Thanks again! Nate
  6. Gary, Thats interesting. I, too, had Benchwick rebuild my EX-23. I was hoping, when I saw yours were gold in color, that someone else rebuilt them and it was the correct sheen. I was a little disappointed at the finish. I just noticed mine is leaking as well at the main jet. Now I know why. Where did you find a correct washer? 7/16 you say? Thanks, nate
  7. Gary, Who did your rebuilds for you? They look awesome! nate
  8. Yes. I visit Jerry often these days. He is not able to answer many questions but I enjoy visiting him. nate
  9. I do have some extra parts. I have a pair of reflectors, some clips, and I have 1 of the stainless rings that keep the lens in place. I have some leads on other parts. Private message me and I’ll share my email and phone number. nate
  10. Hi guys, Do any of you 37 owners have Jerry’s t86 overdrive adapted to their original transmission? My car has it, but I am trying to figure out if/how I should add a cut out toggle into the circuit. Thanks. nate
  11. Thanks guys, I will definitely give rebuilding it a try before replacing it. Thanks guys. Nate
  12. Hi guys, My sending unit is corroded and someone coated the cork with a gas tank sealer. In any event, I'd like to find a NOS or correct replacement. I found a similar sending unit from a 37 Plymouth. Does anyone have a NOS or decent fuel sending unit or has anyone rebuilt one? I'm tempted to drill out the rivets and clean and rebuild it. Thanks, Nate
  13. 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
  14. 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
  15. 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 replacements. Should I replace the switch? Thanks. Nate
  16. 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
  17. 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
  18. 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
  19. I did try that, but I don’t think he’s seen it. So I’m hoping this draws his attention. Thanks, nate
  20. 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

  22. 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
  23. Hi guys. Thanks for the info. 37S2de, I’ll send you a message. I’d love to talk! nate
  24. 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
