  1. My 64 Commander is a last day of production car in despearte need of a red dashboard cover. Robert Kaptain has a green one for sale but I'm not sure it could be dyed red and look correct. Any thoughts on vinyl coloring and vendors that I might contact.
  2. Thanks Terry, The carbs on both my 63V and 64V are Stromberg ww6-130 and 132 respectively. Neither of these has a port up near the top of the carb. A ww6-123 that I have in inventory does have both the dist. vacuum port and the choke port. So if I connect the distributor to the aft port and just leave the end of the choke pipe open, will this be ok or should I undertake to machine a new port near the top of the carb? Dick
  3. On a 1964 259 Lark V8: Automatic Where does the distributor advance vaccum line connect, to the intake manifold or to the port on aft. (firewall side) side of the 2bbl carb.? Where does the mechanical choke "U" tube connect, obviously one end of the "U" goes to the choke, where does the other go? Have looked in all the manuals and can't find plumbing schematics, do the exist?
  4. Can anyone tell me what the correct ignition dwell angles are for my two Studebakers? 1932 Rockne 75 model 41 1963 Datona with a 259 engine. Thanks in advance for your help Dick
  5. I have an escutchen from a 32 Rockne Model 75 as well as a generator from the same car. Check if these will work. Gen is an AutoLite GAM4401 . The escu. is 1.82 in dia and approx. .40" tall. Can send pictures.
  6. Does this come complete with head and gasket? Where does it ship from? Dick
  7. Robert, thanks for the resopnse Lookslike I will have to talk to Study Intl tomorrow and find out what they are selling. I think their catalog says the 1557571 is an 8.25:1. Is this the correct comp. ratio for the 259? Dick
  8. I pulled the heads on my 63 Wagonaire Datona 259 because I had compression problems on two cylinders Took heads to a head repairshop,both had burned valves. One is otherwise OK the other has a crack in a very expensive to fix area. The head shop told me the # on the heads is1557570. Study Intl. has new ones for sale (expensive) and they say the # is 1557571. What is the difference between the two? Would prefer to find a good used head and have my repair shop cleanit up Anyone have one for sale? Whats the diff. between 1557570 and1557571 I'm kinda laid up with a new knee for a while but it would be nice if I could get the heads ready to re-install when I'm back at full strength. Any thoughts?? Dick
  9. Thanks for the replys, the T86 that is available for sale is a 3 spd automatic with an overdrive already attached. I assume it's an automatic OD, is there some other OD and if so how does one tell the difference? In reading about the T85 it appears it wasn't used in many brands and also for just a few years. It was supposed to be a ruged tranny with a cast iron case so I wondered why it wasn't picked up by more brands. This one comes with an aftermarket floor shifter. Is there a bell housing adapter available out there that would permit coupling this to a Study 259, are the splines compatable? Am I in uncharted waters here or has someone already successfully done this? Thanks, Dick
  10. Is it posible to install a T 86 automatic transmission with overdrive in a 259 v8 in a 62 Lark. Are there bell housing adaptors available. In not a T86, is there a different tranny/adaptor with floor shifter that is recommended. My existing 2 speed is shot and rather than fixing it I would like to have an overdrive unit.
  11. Hi, Do you still have this available? Dick 612 3823- 3264
  12. NEEDED!! ONE LAST MISSING PIECE FROM MY '32 ROCKNE 75 IS THE CLUTCH/FLYWHEEL HOUSING. ANY HOUSING FROM THIS VINTAGE ENGINE/TRANSMISSION WOULD PROABLY BE ADAPTABLE TO THIS CAR. ANYONE OUT THERE WITH AN ENGINE FOR PARTS WOULD BE A LIKLEY SOURCE. MY MANUAL LISTS SEVERAL HOUSINF PART NUMBERS: 174473,--74, 177070,--67,--66. BUT I EXPECT OTHERS COULD BE MADE TO WORK. ANY THOUGHTS? DICK
  13. Has the car been modified to include an alternator instead of a generator? Alternators have diodes in them that don't like polarity reversals. Have you measured the current drain under both pos and neg ground configurations, seems to me the readings should be the same. If not start disconnecting things starting with the generator/regulator and see what happens to to the current. to measure the current put an ammeter between the + bat. terminal and the cable end that is intended to attasch to the + terminal. Good Luck
  14. I HAVE A GRILL SHELL AND INSERTS FOR A MODEL 75
