Well, started the engine compartment color restoration on my recently acquired 64 Cruiser. Removed the valve covers for repainting. Happily there is no sludge, just very clean looking. Thanks again, Kent, for the paint. Now, before I reinstall the covers I need to get replacement stud grommets as the old ones are in very poor shape. Does anyone know where I can get them. I already have two complete sets of valve cover gaskets so I don't need those, just the grommets. Thanks in advance

Virtually all the Studebaker vendors that carry mechanical parts carry them...

Check page 99 of SI's catalog...

There are probably many more Studebaker Vendors that carry them.

If you don't want to wait for a vendor shipment, "Dusty" (Bob) Wagner found that a Subaru valve cover grommet works perfectly and is much stronger than the original type.

You can also look in some of the better stocked bins at Lowes. I found a stash of slightly concave washers, with rubber attached to one side. This also also works very well.
