I believe that Studebaker International offers the service. They do sell the rollers as well.

I am sure that you mean K bodies as C bodies do not have regulators.

This reminds me of Bob Bourke telling me how Studebaker changed the design of these regulators to save $0.50 per car. Of course, 50 cents per car was a lot then. Of course that meant that these many years later we have to deal with regulators that do not want to move the quarter window the last one inch forward.

EDIT: If it is just a worn sector in a regulator, I have had great results in building the teeth up with braze and then grinding them to the proper shape.

I have early K body regulators, which may be used on 56-8 models by changing the stem.
