  1. Fast recovery and hope prognosis is solid. Take it easy and stay away from locked doors. . . . Henry Votel Forest Lake, MN
  2. I did go and rescue these. THANKS for all comments & info. The story: these rested in a garage rafters for decades; the wood is dry and solid. I will follow up and message anyone with an interest and send better pics. Anyone with questions give me a ring. Shipping will be interesting. THANKS ALL! Henry Votel Forest Lake, MN 651-426-1610
  3. Greetings All. -->>NOT MINE<<--These popped up on my local CL today. Out of my limited area of Studebaker identification. Any opinions on years these were applicable? Opines on any value or usefulness they might have? Price is negligible. Wall hangers? https://minneapolis.craigslist.org/dak/pts/d/saint-paul-wooden-studebaker-wheels/7166214833.html Henry Votel Forest Lake, MN ======================
  4. Hello JRA. I have a Ball & Ball carburetor at eBay currently; only a day or two still listed. Can relist. I am no expert at Pre-war Studebaker parts. Uncertain if a fit so make your own determination. Anyway, thought to bring to your attention. https://www.ebay.com/itm/Ball-Ball-Carburetor-1925-Brass-work-of-Art-from-a-Studebaker-Others-xx/254599596454?hash=item3b475189a6:g:JocAAOSwgPhewV-P Best Regards. . . . .
  5. Hi Gary, Examined the original decal here and it measures across 2-1/4" flat side to flat side. It measures 2-3.8" across point to point. The border around the deal of about 1/4" seems to have a light shaded gray over the yellow. Grayish but not overwhelming the yellow. Nice job whipping a prototype up! Henry Votel Forest Lake, MN
  6. Studebaker and FRAM I didn’t know this. Probably many others do. Thought it interesting. In the process of ID’ing some Studebaker Pre-War parts recently I started seeing interesting tidbits about an old odd looking Fram Oil Filter that I was putting at auction. https://www.ebay.com/itm/333548085996 I was curious because this old FRAM Filter had a decal on it showing: Fleming Mfg. Worchester, Mass. So I dug deeper and at the FRAM web site History page I learned the following: “Over 85 years ago, our original chemists, FRederick Franklin and T. Edward AldhAM, invented an easily replaceable oil filtering element at their laboratory in Providence, Rhode Island. Automotive oil filters of various types had been on the market for nearly 10 years, yet were difficult to install, change and clean. So, FRanklin and AldhAM, whose last names were combined to form the company name, set out to solve these problems with their revolutionary filters.” At the FRAM History Events page it stated: “FRAM filters became original equipment on the 1936 Studebakers. Also in 1936: FRAM introduces the F4, the first FRAM oil filter with single-bolt cover-seal construction.” The web site told about the 1st FRAM Company slogan “THE DIP STICK TELLS THE STORY - LOOK AT IT”. There it is right on the decal label pictured of this old filter. So, there it was mention of Studebaker in 1936 as the first FRAM original equipment filter and info about when the very familiar single bolt filter we all know was invented. Reading this kind of information clinched it for me that this odd looking FRAM oil filter had to be among the earliest FRAM stye filters. I am concluding it is the original style and design used on 1936 Studebaker engines. Opinions appreciated.
  7. Thanks for mentioning Studerex. Not often the stars are in alignment on my parts with someone's needs. The link in Studerex post is correct for about the next 25 days; subject to getting bought by someone else. Henry Votel Forest Lake, MN
  8. THANKS so far for several purchases by known AACA Studebaker Forum Members. Glad these parts are getting to folks who can use them -
  9. Greetings. Shameless promotion of Pre War, mostly Studebaker, parts now at eBay. From private collections in SW Wisconsin. These 1920’s to 1940 parts have been in dry storage for years. Now as Owners are aging they say someone else should have these treasures and hope they will get used. This link should be good for 30 days, except for a few 7 day offerings.

  10. Added to my list of tips to review when doing brake work. Thanks!
  11. THANK YOU keiser31 Much appreciated. Surprised it is a front bumper. Appreciate your sharing knowledge. Henry Votel Forest Lake, MN
  12. Have this bumper from a cache of deceased owner parts that is still in real nice condition that I'd like to sell. Been watching cars at shows and BTT50's hoping to see a fit but no luck. Pretty distinctive form with extrusions at the corners and likely a rear bumper. All thoughts and comments appreciated. Henry Votel Forest Lake, MN
  13. *****THANKS TO ALL WHO INQUIRED - NOW SOLD**** FYI if of interest to you. It covers 1916-1917 Models "SF" "ED" "7". Really interesting to review. Contains price lists BUT more important shows Part Numbers along with many detailed illustrations. The old prices are “UNBELIEVEABLE”. Just pennies for most items. 140+ pages. The cover is loose and has a rip, fixible. Except for the cover the overall condition is good. internal pages mostly clear and clean. Genuine Shop Veteran showing by obvious usage. You will be pleased. The value of $1 in 1916 is equivalent to about $23.19± in 2019. So think of this manual as costing you about $1.50 in 1916 money. eBay offering more pics at: https://www.ebay.com/itm/254167490149?ssPageName=STRK:MESELX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1555.l2649 Henry Votel Forest Lake, MN

  15. This has been a great and interesting decoration in my office for the past several years. It needs to see the light of day mounted on a magnificent 1928 Studebaker or properly displayed in someones' collection.
