  1. If yours has a vacuum advance on the distributor make sure it's working properly. ie.....no hole in the diaphram.
  2. Well, if you lived closer to me in Calif. I'd pay $300 for it. If you gave it a compression test and posted the results you might get more $.
  3. Oh cool. A D42 engine is a 230 ci engine from a 51 or 52 Dodge car. A bit more powerful than a 50 Truck 218 ci.
  4. Two questions. 1) where is the engine located ? 2) what is the engine number ? It's located on the block just above the alternator in your 2nd photo. Reg
  5. Maybe a previous owner swapped out the original 4.1 ratioed rear end for a 3.5 or 3.0. I did this to my 52 1/2 ton. It now has a 3.0 rear and a 251 Chrysler L6.
  6. I have two old but nice radiators I'd sell. Not sure of their applications except that they are DCPD. The larger one is #591259. Make me an offer. Rego@hughes.net Reg Evans
  7. My '39 Royal had a solenoid actuated starter when I got it.
  8. Thanks dpcdfan. That'll learn me for relying on my memory.
  9. I make lots of reproduction instrument lenses for old cars. The type that are printed on the back of the glass. I'm looking for a 1934 DeSoto Speedometer lens to use as a guide and will make you a new one if you can provide me with an old one that's faded or cracked for free. Here's an example of one of 115 lenses I sell on eBay. https://www.ebay.com/itm/123793534497?ssPageName=STRK:MESELX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1555.l2649
  10. 180 to 190 would be ideal. Your gauge could be off a little. I think 150 to 160 is kinda low and might tend to build up sludge in an engine.
  11. If you're lucky the problem is only the small wire inside the distributer with worn insulation grounding out when the vacuum advance kicks in.
  12. I reproduce lenses for vintage automobiles and wondered if anyone here can identify in what vehicles these dials were used. I sell over 100 lenses on eBay as "grandpadodge" I have found at least 4 different types with the same round dial. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks, Reg Evans
  13. Hi there, My name is Reg Evans and I make reproduction speedometer, gauge, radio, and clock lenses for old cars and sell them on eBay. I found this image of a clock lens on line for a Studebaker and I need to know what years it covers and the dimensions of the glass. Anyone here have one and know about it ? Are the graphics in metallic gold or just a kinda gold color ? Thanks, Reg aka grandpadodge on eBay
  14. I make and sell many types of instrument glass for old cars SPEEDOMETER, GAUGES, CLOCK, & RADIO. Please have a look at this ebay item and then check out my other items. If you don't see what you need for your Studebaker ask me about making one for you if you can provide me with an old faded and flaking glass. Here's an example of one I sell now. https://www.ebay.com/itm/123685737277?ssPageName=STRK:MESELX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1555.l2649 Thanks for looking, Reg
