You have to be more specific.

Part numbers?


What other cars use the same part in case someone has a parts car 

of an other year.

Very few people have cars like you to know what you need.

Most vendors have their parts inventoried by part numbers 

and have no idea what it is for.

rbk, thanks for your response! I think all these parts would also work (or be close enough) from a 1935 Commander or 34/35 President. Here are the part numbers from the manual.


-oil filter complete with mounting bracket 

168249 Oil Filter* (use AC-995)
173886 Inlet pipe w/nuts (use 1208XA)3/16" O.D. x 10-3/4"
173887 outlet pipe w/nuts (use 542-04) 1/4" O.D. x 10'
112971 Spacer  
168691 Elbow, inlet pipe, cyl end
509-03 Nut, flared pipe 3/16"
509-04 Nut, flared pipe 1/4"
504-03 Elbow, inlet pipe, filter end
504-04 Elbow, outlet pipe


-automatic choke linkage to the carb

181835 Rod, Choke control before eng. # C-27992
181423  Rod, Choke control after eng. # C-27992

(I will take either although my engine is earlier, but can't say I have the correct carb...)


-wiper motors and knobs

259635 Wiper Body, Right
259636 Wiper Body, Left
259693W Knob, wiper control stem 
260704 Governor, Wiper Vacuum, right
260705 Governor, Wiper Vacuum, left
259694W Knob, Wiper speed regulator
259091W Arm & Spring, wiper
244474W Clip, wiper arm spring
259889 Rest, wiper blade

Are these pictures of your engine?

I believe the orange oil filter shown is a later unit adapted to that engine.

Over the years there have been many discussions about which oil-filter is correct for which


If you would be happy with the filter shown , I may have some but won't be able to find these soon because of health problems .

Robert, sorry to hear of your health problems. I hope you recover quickly. No, the pictures are of other peoples cars. My engine is currently on the test stand. I have seen slightly different oil; filters on other 34 Studebakers so I am using my best guess based on an illustration in the parts manual. I was able to find buy an oil filter recently from another member but I am still in need of the other parts. Please look for them when you are able. I appreciate any help. Thanks,
