  1. Dave, contact Bob Kapteyn at Joliet Studebaker Parts in Joliet, IL 815-722-7262 he reproduces or has sources for many prewar Studebaker parts. John Shanahan
  2. Get a catalog from Restoration Supply Company in Escondido, CA 92025 (800-306-7008) their page 7 illustrates dozens of flexible conduit conductors and connectors for prewar auto accessories, the catalog is a must have item for old cars restoration. Stude8
  3. The engine appears to have a single spark coil distributor unlike the Presidents of 1929-30 that used dual coil ignition with 10 post caps. The engine model and serial numbers stamped on the top of the cylinder block at the left front end would clear up what engine it is for sure. Stude8
  4. Roger I'll attach a photo of the rear view of my 1928 GB Victoria in case there are any details it might answer for your restoration project. John Shanahan
  5. Roger I have a 1928 Studebaker Commander model GB Victoria that is probably very close to the same dimensions of your EP Coupe. My rear bumpers measure 66 inches from left to right sides and the rear fenders extend outward about 1" further than the bumper ends on each side. RTQ has a very large collection of Studebaker literature that he has acquired over the years so he can look up details of most any Studebaker question anyone can pose. He lives in Northern Illinois area south west of the Chicago area. I live about 350 miles south of Chicago but did live near Richard about 8 years ago and can confirm him as one of the most knowledgable Studebaker data sources. I attached a photo of my 1928 Commander below. John Shanahan (Stude8)
  6. Attached are photos of the original 1928 Studebaker Commander running boards on my car that illustrate the rubber matting style used by Studebaker in 1928, John Shanahan, Harrisburg,IL
  7. I replaced the horn diaphragms in my Sparton some 20 years ago, previous owners had warped them by over tightening or other mishandling and once warped they no longer oscillated correct. You need Phosphor Bronze flat stock .005 thickness to make them from, it can be cut with scissors to size. I got the metal from a supplier in Morton Grove, Illinois called Guardian Metal Sales, 6116 Oakton St, Morton Grove, IL 60053. Don't know if they still operate? The bronze diaphragm has to be aligned so that when fully threaded onto the horn that it rests against the round brass tube connected to the horn resonator. Kind of like a pipe organ reed horn. It may take a few adjustment trials to get it aligned where the diaphragm speaks (brass tube has fine threads and a lock nut to adjust it) at the desired tone and volume. Good luck. Stude8
  8. This is my 1928 Studebaker Commander Big Six Victoria model GB. It runs well and gets to local car shows here in far southern Illinois when the weather is OK for it to be outside. The 354 CID big six is a powerful engine and it climbs hills with the best of them all. The engine compartment photos shows the refinished splash apron panel being replaced. John Shanahan
  9. I'll attach some pages of an article from the ASC newsletter a few years ago about pulling Studebaker steering wheel levers, it might help. John Shanahan
  10. The magazine cover page was too large to post on this web page, pg 34,35,36,37 did fit. Stude8
  11. I have a number of Mercer race about scans of a 1959 magazine article about the teen's Mercer models, they are too large files to post on this web page but post your email address and I can send them direct to it. Stude8 ** I managed to add the Mercer images in another post on this forum after this one, unfortunately the article was about "L Head" models not earlier T Heads.. See post #3. Stude8
  12. To Steve I don't know the jet size, it is an adjustable needle type jet. John (stude8)
  13. I'll attach a photo of a 1929 Studebaker President roadster with 19" rims for comparison, I believe the bolt pattern is 5-1/2" diam 5 bolts. Stude8
  14. How about posting a photo, number of bolt holes and mtg circle diameter in inches. Also the hub cap mtg details, thread on or snap in?? Stude8
