Dear people (ladies/gentleman)

Is there also available a thermostat for the engine 6 cilinder studebaker rockne 1932

And where can I buy it

 

Thanks

This one for the Model A Ford might work - it's available from most places that sell A parts.  It goes in the hose - most folks set it against the metal inlet pipe and use a third hose clamp to keep it from sliding in the hose.

I read in another post that you used a Volvo thermostat? Do you recall which one you used? A part number? Is it a thermostat that mounts under the tube on the cylinder head? 

 

I have a 34 Dictator and it is the same engine as yours. I don't believe the car originally came with a thermostat but it makes sense to use one.

 

Your car looks great!

 

Thanks. Derek

Yes it's the same situation where the thermostat is by a Volvo Amazon engine

So I thought,I can use that thermostat also in the engine head from the studebaker rockne

I made a different gasket for to keep 5he thermostat inside

I believe there must be a thermostat if you see the place between the head/gooseneck

See photos

But I can be wrong ?

Yes, I'm happy about the colour

I believe if the car is totally finished and driving

I will make people happy for renting the car out for marriage or a day fun

I want to give people a great feeling of joy

 

Another question

I have to chrome the door handles

and the spare wheel holders (zamak)

Together it are 18 parts

At the chrome factory they asked 300 euro a part

That's together 18x300=5400 euro

Is is it also expensive in the USA

It's a lot of money

Take a look at the photos I took from the thermostat place in The engine head

The 1928-40 Catalog of Chassis Parts for 6-cylinder engines shows a sketch of the thermostat for a 1932 Rockne (Models 30 and 41).  

However, the part numbers are different for the two models.  What is the model of your Rockne?

 

Model 30 = 183307 thermostat

Model 41 = 183306 thermostat

 

The gasket will not hold the thermostat down.  You may need a short tube to put on the thermostat.  The tube will fit in the water outlet.  See the attached sketch from the parts catalog, Type A.

Your chrome prices seem very inflated. It might be cheaper to send them to another country to have the work done. 

Yes I know

They ask what they want

I think to take it with me to Thailand

There are many people with a hobby like ours (old cars)

Thanks

My rockne is a 65

The gasket I made is a iron gasket

so I think it will fit properly for a long time

If not?

I will use your recommendation

A tube above the thermostat that fit inside the gooseneck and hold the thermostat down

Thanks Gary

Enjoy the weekend

Model 65 is the same as 30.

i didn't know

Many times I had a conversation with David Babcock

And we talk always about studebaker rockne 65

So I don't know it's the same as 30

But thanks

Original thermostat in the 1932 Rockne 65 and 1933 Rockne 30, per the 1932 Service Manual, was set to start opening when engine temperature reaches 140 degrees F to 145 degrees F. (60C-63C).

It's difficult to find a thermostat operating that low today. (If anyone finds one, point me in that direction.)

I've heard some folks will drill one, two or three 1/8" holes in a hotter thermostat collar to allow some flow before the valve itself starts to open.

Herman, it CAN be confusing.

The 1932 Rockne 65  is identified in the Parts Catalogs as Studebaker model 30. Same car.

The 1933 Rockne 10 is identified in the Parts Catalogs as Studebaker model 31. Same car.

The 1932 Rockne 75 is identified in the Parts Catalogs as Studebaker model 41.

 

The '32 '65' and the '33 '10' are identical in practically all aspects, and unique from all other Studebakers.

The '32 '75' is basically a Studebaker '55' with Rockne badging.

Hallo sir

Take a look at internet

And write (thermostat 60 degree)

And you will find several website that sells 60 degree thermostat

Maybe also a little bit higher in degree

But there are still for sell,only if they fit

That's another question

I will buy one that is in my opinion the best choice

I take a risk, I know to loose some money

I have to put the thermostat with another selfmade gasket I think in the engine head

But I will solve

Thanks for your advice

Herman

It's good to have people around

On internet

Volvo Penta 60 degree thermostat

But if it will fit? I don't know

I go coming week to a luxury boat seller

I think they sell also thermostat 60 degree

I will take a look if it fit

Maybe I have to make a gasket

Good luck
