  4. today was a red banner day: a one in a million studebaker person had one, sent it to me, installed this afternoon, works like a charm: thanks to all that read/replied/offered ideas, thanks to all: now about this speedometer drive housing: :-) b.j.
  5. the speedometer housing that goes into the transmission on my 25 studebaker duplex is broken: want to buy the complete unit or just the housing, what ever it takes to get the speedometer working.

  7. you guy's are worth a million! thanks all the way around: i "will" get this duple correct with a lot of help from folks like yall. happy camper b.j.
  8. the hydro-pneumatic gas gauge in my 25 duplex does not work. i have an "audels" automotive manual that gives the principal of operation: a variable head of gasoline producing a variable pressure of air, which in turn upsets the equilibrium of liquid in a u tube" the dash unit is simply) a u tube that containing a "heavy red liquid", one leg of the tube being made of glass so that the rise and fall of the red liquid (due to variable level of the gasoline is visible. ) with all the above understood to a happy level, what in the world was the "heavy red liquid" that was placed into the tube? how much heavy red liquid, once we find out what it is, would be installed in the tube? could this liquid still be in the tube, hid somewhere from the dash back to the tank???? aren't old cars fun!
  9. thanks guys for all the info and help. I have the generator drive problem fixed with the jaw coupling ( thanks stude8) have had limited luck with the generator end frame, however, don't give up helping, please, any one going to hershey that may find the end frame or generator i will be interested.

  10. just a thought: if the starter ring gear can be reoved, remove and re-install 90 degrees from the original spot. most of the times an engine will stop at the same two areas, by moving the ring gear you will have "new" teeth for the starter to ingage. just an idea
  11. there was a corvette one half restore like you mentioned in corvette fever, remember it being a v59? remember comments being made as being a half a%% restoration
  12. i have a 31 deluxe two door- if someone needs parts that were "left over" from the restoration process, most are serviceable, some so-so. a couple of engines, one runs, the other for parts, let's see if we can't get some of these back into service. please/please no swap meet vendors, do have a set of 6 wood spoke wheels, no hubs.....b.j. cannon cell 904 613 5522
