If you can't find a picture anywhere, try the Studebaker Museum. I think in their research department they have blueprints, etc. which they can copy and send to you for a fee.

If Jeff has one floating around the garage, will he sell it to me when he catches it? Thanks very much for the replies.

Not for sale, it's part of his full package 64.

I'm sorry! I thought the car may have been dismantled and he had parts.Please provide pics and dimensions if possible. I hope I did not insult Jeff by misunderstanding.
Thanks

Mavbe some detailed pictures. Perhaps even with a tape measure in the pix to show dimensions?

Does anyone have access to one of these brackets that they can measure? The next step on my R2 is to install the air cleaner assembly, and I am missing the bracket - if someone can provide the measurements, I am hoping I can make one which is similar.
Also, can someone provide measurements on where the holes are drilled on a R2 Lark for the air cleaner? My car had it's right fender replaced at some point.

thanks!

A photo is worth a 1000 words, here are 3000 + words. Photos are from my 63 Daytona R2.

The black bracket is about 1 inch wide and 7 1/4 inches total length, the top bend is 1 1/14 inch, the bottom bend (two holes) is 2 inches. The rear of the air cleaner is about 5 1/4 inches from the body tag on the cowl. The PCV elbow is about 1/2 inch below the pole that is laid accross the top of the front fenders.

Hi Guys. Sorry it has taken so long to respond but John has been working me like a dog on the 64.;)

Jackson, your pictures are very good. The dimensions of your bracket are exactly the same as the bracket on my 63 R2. So, I would say that's factory correct. The only dimension that's different is that my air cleaner is 4 1/4 inches from the body plate (instead of 5 1/4 in). I can't check the 64 R2 for comparison since the air cleaner is not mounted.

And Jackson, not insulted at all. In fact, you are correct about the 64 being dismantled. There are pieces of that car scattered all over Maryland and Virgina right now. I think I am on the upswing though since I can't find any other parts to remove.:)

Jeff
