  1. I agree that it is a spreader rather than a compressor. The only possible use I can see for it is being inserted between the cam follower and valve tip to lift the valve to its maximum on side valve engines. With the head removed this would enable de-carbonising of the valve and port without removing the valve. Probably just as easy to remove the valve and that is why these tools are not that common. Just my thought on what it was used for.
  2. Have you checked your universal joints recently? On many vehicles these receive little or no attention until it is too late causing all sorts of problems. I did see in another thread that you changed to modern joints some time ago.
  3. Does your vehicle have a "Hill Holder" ? If it does could it be malfunctioning and holding the brakes on? Just a thought.
  4. Does your Studebaker have vacuum wipers? If it does you could try disconnecting and plugging the vacuum line to them and see how it drives? The wiper motor/system may have a vacuum leak and need an overhaul.

  6. SC38DLS if after doing all of the repairs/replacements/adjustments you have outlined and you are confident that they have been done correctly and the problem persists I would go back to checking for vacuum leaks including the inlet manifold gasket.
  7. To me they have the look of part of a 1920's vehicle spare wheel carrier.
  8. Depending on the cubic capacity I would say it is a 1932 Singer 18-6 or a 12-6. Possibly a one year only model.
  9. Looks like a 1917 Series 18 engine to me.
  10. Not 100% sure but I would start looking at an Overland product. Perhaps circa 1925 Overland Model 91.
  11. Perhaps a Benz 39/100 built from 1912 to 1920. https://media.daimler.com/marsMediaSite/en/instance/picture/Benz-39100-PS-Runabout-1913.xhtml?oid=7569948
  12. If I understand you correctly Gary you are using a drift diagonally across and under the drive shaft yoke to drive out the bush. It looks to me that this is the correct way to do it, however, if the bush is seized or frozen on the cross journal you may not get enough contact with the drift to force it out. I would suggest tying to free up the bush first but this could be problematic without damaging it or the housing. I'm sure it can be done but not easily.
  13. Looks like a circa 1923 Buick two door sedan to me.
