  1. Yes that simple. And give it a turn every so many miles to relubricate until it bottoms out. A system commonly used on farm machinery in the early 20th century. No need to even have the grease gun handy to grease the fitting.
  2. There certainly were traffic rules before automobiles. It was up to each state and locality. I know of a rule book for a local cemetery that forbid horses from being driven at more than a staid walk. it was written in the 1880's. As for backing up horses.. a good teamster could back a wagon into an unloading bay. I live in the midst of an Amish community and I see them do it all the time. I also worked with horses growing up on the farm and we often would back a team up. Tales a little persuasion but a well mannered team will do it.
  3. My 1928 GE Dictator was originally Spruce Green and Dove Grey according to the paint code under the rear seat. There are places on the car where you can see the original Spruce Green color. It appears to match the engine color as duplicated by many vendors. Since 1928 was when Studebaker first started painting engines green I suspect this may have been the source of the engine color originally.
  4. My grandparents had one just like it for a front door stop.
  5. Parts books says they fit 1922 EJ and 1923 and 24 EM .004 oversize with 11/16 diameter piston pin. Four ring type.
  6. I own a 1940 Studebaker commander. That is not a bumper for a 1940 commander or president as they took the same bumper. There are extra holes in the posted bumper that aren't on those two model Studebakers.
  7. I am not sure if these will help? They are from a late 1922 light six trunk. The metal edge of the trunk area is a separate piece screwed into the wood. It sticks up slightly above rest of body metal and the trunk has a curved lip that hangs over it. By 1925 they may have gotten more sophisticated.
  8. Based on my light six roadster. I would agree that it was a trunk opening as you mentioned the hinges were on the top not the bottom.
  9. I used a toggle switch that returns to the off position when you release it. Works well no danger of forgetting to shut it off.
  10. The wagner for 1920 is Wagner model EM201 studebaker part number 30468. They changed in 1922 to Wagner S 400 studebaker number 10542. The remy number is Remy 736A st part #39680 or Remy 732A st part # 105959. The latter was used at least until 1925. Some one who has worked on these can verify fitment. This is just from the parts catalog.
  11. I have the 1919 to 1922 parts book and the same parts as Gary listed are used at least back until the 1919 Big six.
  12. Here the tool I use to identify NYS plates.
  13. My Grandfather's first car was a 1917 Case car. I have the original registration for it. Is the car in the photograph a Case? My Uncle is the baby in the image and he was born in 1917.
