Big 6 Distributor Gears


Recommended Posts

I recently picked up a spare distributor gear for my 1925 Big 6 from Ben McAdam in Wheeling, WV. It is in excellent un-used condition. His email is AntiqueBenny@aol.com. I do not know how many he lad left in stock. He also has ignition parts for 1920's vintage Studebaker Big 6's.<p>[ 07-15-2001: Message edited by: spu ]

I am the proud owner of the one and only 1925 Studebaker Bus! You can see a picture of it at <A HREF="http://www.lastchancemarina.com/studebaker.htm" TARGET=_blank>Steve's Last Chance Studebaker</A><P>My distributor drive gear is still "OK" but I have learned not to trust anything made of potmetal ...<P>Is there any interest out there in Studebaker land for me to make duplicates of my spare gear?

Well, I can't speak for others, but I would be interested. Of Course it depends on the price. I just received a pair of steel gears from Boston Gear that cost me $35 for the pair. These are blanks that I have yet to machine to fit properly. since I have the tools, it's not a problem, but even my time is money, so to speak. The other problem with these gears is they only have 15 teeth. The originals had 21 and would be easier to set timing. Do you have a price range you were considering????<P>Frank

I do not have the capability of "making" the gears myself. I would verify the design and specs and subcontract the work. As for cost, I have not figured that out yet. Stay tuned ...<P>Steve<p>[ 07-15-2001: Message edited by: spu ]
