  1. I would check the floor starter switch and make sure it is passing through a good strong current. I had a caterpillar make a cocoon inside mine once. It would only make contact sometimes. Once I removed the cocoon and polished the contact surfaces it worked great again. Use a jumper cable to connect directly from the battery negative (positive ground system) to the terminal on the starter. If the starter works then you know it is the switch.
  2. Thought this information might be useful to people as to hub caps. Studebaker parts books describe the colors of hub caps only for the 1922 1923 and 1924 cars. 105499 1922 big six EK Has hexagonal red line around edge of cap. 105979 1922 1923 1924 big six EK Has red letter S in black background. Inside diameter 2 5/8 inches. 105980 1922 1923 1924 special six EL Has blue letter S in black background. Inside diameter 2 5/8 inches. 105500 1922 special six EL Has six black stripes in blue background. 44889 1922 1923 1924 light six EJ EM Has black letter S in red background. Inside diameter 2 1/2 inches.
  3. Yes, I would agree with Stude 17. My 1922 light six studebaker uses these on the differential and on the transmission. It allowed adjustment of the bearings.
  4. Might be an early 20's studebaker with the cowl lights attached to the windshield post.
  5. They made pennies of aluminum or steel during the war as well.
  6. Part 12007 was the part number for the morse chain. They are interchangeable.
  7. This page should help Bob identify the different chains he has. See note by timing chains.
  8. 1917 Studebaker series 18 cars had rounded door at least in the touring cars. I can't find a picture of an enclosed car for 1917. Here is a link to some pictures. https://www.pinterest.com/studebakerofaustralia/studebaker-1917/
  9. I am not saying it is studebaker by the parts books indicate that some 1919 through 1923 studebaker closed cars used a chain lift for windows. The hinges also look like some hinges I have that came off a 1924 light six coupe.
  10. Robert has a nos whitney chain (125718). If Glen can get the accessory shaft sprocket to match the chain and the other two sprockets are the later type he should be good to go.
  11. If you look in the Studebaker Parts book B for the Standard six on page 202-c there is a note that chains 120007 (Morse), 122205 (link belt) and chain 122050 (Duckworth) are replaced by chain 125718 (Whitney). All these chains run on the same sprockets. The last chain part number 125718 was used on late standard sixes and continued through GE, GJ, GL, S1, 53. This would indicate that these chains are interchangeable. The parts book does not mention type 45 being stamped on the sprocket only on the front of the outside link of the morse chain. If Robert has a new chain of any of these types it should work on the later EM sprockets.
  12. It is an EL model special six. Made from end of 1921 to 1924. The EL usually had a single piece windshield though the parts books shows a few early 22 models with two piece windshields. In 1923 and 24 the windshield could be had in paint or chrome.
  13. When I worked on the timing chain on my 1924 light six I went through the studebaker parts books. The same sprocket part numbers for the later EM are used all the way up to the end of that family of six cylinder engines. An example, cam shaft sprocket part number 120006 according to the 1928 to 40 six part book was used on: GE, GJ, GL, S1, 53. Older parts books also show this part number for the standard six and EM. The same is true for the other two sprockets. The parts book shows a number of different chains by different manufacturers but the same sprockets were used for at least 10 years. They list each new chain type as superseding the previous one. I ended up removing the hunters link from my chain as per the repair manual. That took care of the slackness issue.
  14. The cam shaft sprocket is part number 120006. The crankshaft sprocket is part number 120011. The accessory shaft sprocket is part number 120012. As for the timing chain. According to the parts book the morse chain and all the other types that followed on the standard six , Ge etc. are interchangeable.
