  1. I’ve got a similar issue with one of mine. I adjusted the front brakes and now they come on but won’t come off unless I physically push the operating lever back. I stripped them and can only assume that the square operating cam is going over centre. Ive sent my shoes off to be relined so I’m hoping this will cure it as more meat on the lining should mean that the cam won’t need to operate as much.
  2. Can you please message me a price. Thank you
  3. I’ve just had an axle shaft shear on my 1930 Studebaker GJ commander. I’ve bought a replacement and new taper roller bearings, and was wondering the procedure for shimming the preload. The manual I have is for a 1927 which is different. Those have a big nut which is set with .002” end float. With the double taper bearings I don’t want too much load on them but equally I don’t want them lose. Any help appreciated. Thanks Wayne
  4. Julio I just noticed you asked about other parts. I have a pair of rear lamps, Studebaker type D. I have a rear fender which is new old stock, and some small bits, which I would have to dig out if you want any pics let me know. kind regards wayne

  6. I’ve sent you some pics. Also attached here. wayne
  7. I have a steering column set for your car, but I am in England. I would sell it and can post overseas if required. If interested in the horn and lever arrangement let me know and I will get some photos for you. It has the stator tube attached, but that maybe hard to post. Regrads Wayne Smith

  11. A friend in the UK has a Chrysler 77 roadster for sale. This is closer than America and you could visit and view the car. If interested message me your email and I will pass on his details. Regards Wayne
  12. Bob, the pulley where the fan hub is located is on an eccentric, loosen the pinch bolt and rotate the large nut to slacken the belt, the hub will probably need sliding forward in the housing so that there is enough room between the pulley and the cylinder head, to squeeze the belt out. Then you need to undo the rubber/canvas couplings on the drive shaft running alongside the engine. The belt can then be removed. When doing mine I mark everything with tipex so the shaft goes back together as removed. Regards Wayne
  13. Would a Chrysler 77 roadster be of interest? A friend here in the UK has his for sale. His asking price is £50,000 (approx $67,000). If interested I can get pics and more info. Regards Wayne
  14. My 1929/30 Gj commander is on 19” wheels with the same hub caps as in your pic. My 1928 GE dictator is on 20” wheels with the smaller hub caps. thanks
  15. Im looking to buy a set of 5 tires for my 1928 Studebaker Dictator. I am wanting wide white walls, but am having trouble finding something suitable. The car is currently fitted with 5.25/5.50 x 20 tires. I believe the original size to be 5.50 x 20. Could 6.00 x 20 be used? I currently have lester's fitted, but don't want to go with them again. Reason being the set on the car have been on there for at least 12 years, but I replaced one about 5/6 years ago and within a couple of months it cracked all the way around the whitewall, the tire was replaced, but replacement did exactly the same, this too was replaced, the new replacement again cracked and this time I was told it wouldn't be replaced. The side of the tire is slightly different to the older tires on the car, with the originals being in fine condition, Im just replying them as they are now getting old. My other Studebaker had Goodrich Silvertowns fitted, these perished when about 8 years old. I replaced these with Firestones, which seem, great, but this car is on smaller tires and I cant find Firestones in the correct size for my 1928 car. Any suggestions greatly received. Wayne
