    VINs Tags stamped or engraved ?

    Get the blue print from the museum. It shows the number size and style. It is etched not stamped.
  4. Looking for a temperature gauge for a 1932 president. I think the 33 is the same. May also fit other models. Mine is totally missing so a repairable one can do.

    1932 bearings wanted

    Rick, Thanks for finding them. Please advise the suppliers so many people can rebuild their motors.

    1932 bearings wanted

    1935 was the beginning of use of thin wall replaceable bearings in the 8 cylinders. Prior motors used the thick brass shells on the mains and babbitt rods. Ford Stoeckers article was for the later motors 1935 to 1942. I guess you could put shells in the thick main shells, but it would be easier to just get them babbitted. If he threw out the thick shells the later bearings won't help. The rods could be modified to use the cat pony bearings, but they are not available anymore either. I bought up all the ones I could find years ago.

    Looky What I Found Now!

    Bill I just happened on this topic. I viewed the Pierce article you listed years ago.I advised the writer of his error on the casting date referenced. The I is for 1929 not 28. July 9 1929. All 8 cylinder blocks were cast in Studebakers foundry. Studebaker was using the eight for the model year 1928 as 5 main but changed to 9 main starting in June of 1930. The foundry cast dating started in 1921 with A. The president 8 was in production when Studebaker acquired Pierce. The blocks look the same and will interchange as a whole. Studebaker eights changed almost every year from 28 to 33. 28 had the water pump in front of the block, 29-30 were mostly the same, 31 was a cast crank, 32 was a machined crank with bolt on counter weights, and 33 block exterior changed and looked similar to pierce. I bought a Pierce motor once just to dismantle it to see the differences. Yes there are many differences. But I would say the same group of engineers designed both motors.

    1927? Studebaker Engine

    Yep April 27th 1925. So it would be for a late 25 or early 26.
