    1952 brake lines to Hill-holder?

    You are correct, there is no port on the master cylinder. Google Studebaker Hill holder and you may find your answer. http://forum.studebakerdriversclub.com/showthread.php?684-Hill-Holder
  4. Ernie Loga rebuilds these hinges. He is in Wisconsin. His phone is 715-832-7302. Good guy!! Robert Kapteyn
  5. I need a set of new or used crankshaft bearings for a 1932 and '33 Commander Eight and 1934 Commander and President 8 cylinder engine
  6. Rick Thanks for the tip but the bearings I am looking for are for a 1932. Anyone has some new or used crankshaft bearings for a 1932 engine. I have a large stock of part for prewar Sudebakers to trade.
  7. Have patience, Most people that have knowledge of these parts are like me , old and slow. The rims shown in the first picture does not look like the one in the last picture. I assume you show the headlight without the rim https://www.ebay.com/itm/Head-light-trim-ring-Studebaker-Item-2306/272203243706?epid=5012179217&hash=item3f6093e0ba:g:CkMAAMXQ56ZR~kw8:rk:26:pf:0 Robert Kapteyn
  8. I need a set of new or used crankshaft bearings for a 1932 8 cylinder 250cu/in engine. An owner junked the bearings in his engine, thinking that new ones were widely available. He is will pay handsomely for a set of new or rebabitable bearings. Robert Kapteyn 815 212 2389 text or voice.
  9. The crankshaft balance will be different with the steel pistons.
