  1. Found 1 circlip in each end. Removing it still doesn't allow disassembly. I can move the outer race about 1/16. Should there be a circlip in all four? Can this be repaired?
  2. 1920 studebaker. Thought I was in that section. Sorry.
  3. I've got 2 bearings on one end spinning in the carrier causing improper wear. I can find 1 circlip holding the outer race to the carrier. The bearings will not come out even with it removed and I don't want to assume using a press. So do I press? Should there be a circlip on all 8 (4 each end) bearings? This looks like a simple sleeve bearing, not a needle bearing as in newer vehicles.
  4. Any sources for u-joints? Or whatever it's called. Looks like I've got a siezed one rotating in the housing. Are they held in with circlips or snap rings? Still cleaning, pretty sure they've never been touched.
  5. Still haven't been able to find a service manual. Can someone tell me what this is? I guessed a screen for oil. I broke it loose but will not come out easily. I'm concerned if I just tighten it back up the gasket will no longer seal. Can I just twist it out or am I looking for trouble. This started just wanting to change all fluids.
  6. No. Didn't even know I'd be able to find one. Thank you.
  7. Next question. I'm to the point in the picture removing the clutch. Any help as to what's next? Do I need to make a tool to pull the nut? Pointed to?
  8. IF I were to pull my motor to have a minor block crack repaired, is there a source for gaskets to re-seal it as long as it's out? Someone has repaired it with some type of epoxy but it still seeps. Nothing major. Car has 26000 miles on it, never torn down as far as I know and runs great. I'm currently taking out the radiator to have a small leak repaired and pulling the clutch to replace the leather. Any sources to repair the radiator? How about the clutch leather? This is my first time working on this old of a car so it's a steep learning curve. Any answers would be appreciated.
  9. Any vendors out there that rebuild these old radiators? Mine has a leak that I know has been going on for years. My father used sealants to some effect but I wouldn't mind just fixing it right.
  10. That's exactly what's happening. I've adjusted it for maximum throw and I still can't shift when it gets warm without stopping the motor. If I have to reface the clutch, is their a better modern material than the leather recommended in the old manuals. I know my father did replace the leather once years ago.
  11. Thank you all. The clutch is not stuck as I can shift into any gear initially but once it warms up if I shift into neutral, that's when I can't get it back into a gear without shutting off the engine. I'll try leaving the coolant lower and see what happens. Think I'll drive around the neighborhood tomorrow practicing my shifting. Attached a picture of my new toy.
  12. I just inherited this car from my father who passed away quickly before he could show me these things and I now have a couple basic questions that I can't seem to find answers to. It's a nice mostly original survivor that's been in my family mostly since new. 1) The spark advance lever, How do I use it and which way is advanced vs retarded? 2) It runs well but when I stop and shut off the engine, it pukes out a lot of anti-freeze. The radiator temp gauge says the temp is fine. 3) Struggling to figure out the clutch. so far I just start in 2nd or 3rd and leave it there but it would be nice to shift. I've tried adjusting the linkage but nothing seems to help. Double clutching does not help nor does pressing the peddle only half way. If I take it out of gear while using it, I need to stop the engine to get it back in a gear. The oldest car I've ever owned previously was a 39 Ford coupe so this car is completely alien to me. I have a huge learning curve ahead of me.
