What is the chassis and motor?


Recommended Posts

I came across this in the hills a few years back and I would like to know what it is.  It has an aluminum hood and you can see the imprint of the emblem on the grille.  The motor looks very similar to a Metzger 4 cylinder.  Please let me know your thoughts.  

 

Thanks.

I don't think the hood is from this car/chassis. It is too short for that big six. I agree with nzcarnerd, 1915 to about 1918 Studebaker. The vacuum tank would actually suggest 1916 or later. The 1915 built series 16 had the gasoline tank in the cowl, and no vacuum tank.

For sure early studebaker. I’m in need for some parts to get a car running. Please let me know if these parts are available.

The Studebaker Big Six 354 ci engine was so torquey and powerful plus ubiquitous and cheap as used cars, they were a favorite choice for stationary powerplants or to convert to farm tractors.

This was so far back in the hills that I won't get back there for some time.  It is a saw mill.  The back portion has a reciprocating blade (old crankshaft and rod attached to a saw.  

 

Thanks again for the info.

What is the purpose of the taps/valves  between the spark plugs at each cylinder?

Also if it has to be hand-cranked to start,those can be opened as compression releases and make it a lot easier to crank over. Then as soon as it starts they are quickly shut off of course.
