You helped me with the last one so here goes another. I am mounting an alternator on my flathead 6 and Bill Cathcart says a '62-'64 overhead 6 cylinder aletnator mount will bolt right on the flathead too. Does anyone out there have one or know where I can get one. Thanks for your help. Dave in Spokane

I might actually have one. I have parted out a couple of OHV six cars in the past, and I have a couple boxes of parts. I due to go home today or tomorrow, and I'll have a look. Send me an e-mail in a day or so to jog my memory.;)

And, I am planning a trip to Spokane as soon as I can get a few days free. I have a Suburban body to fetch from near there. So, if I do have the bracket, I could deliver it.

If I can't find a bracket, you could check with John Lasseter. I think he's from Vancouver, WA, and he makes alternator brackets for V8s. He was at the National meet last month.

Sadly, a '64 Commander (6) was in the "Pull N Save" wrecking yard in Spokane a few months ago, but is now gone. (I got the alternator, but didn't take the bracket.) Their usual practice is to put unusual cars in a front row where they can be bought whole before being put out in the main yard. They're usually on "viewing" for a few weeks unless they're sold first. Had it been a V8 car, I'd likely have bought the whole thing and taken it home. (I'd also be looking for a new home, as my marriage would have been over.) Fortunately, the car was in terrible shape and didn't have enough that I needed on it. In the couple of weeks that it was in the main lot, the only parts taken were those that I took. I frequent this yard and would gladly let others know when I see a Studebaker there (extremely infrequent), since I now know there are Spokane and vicinity readers of this forum that might benefit.

Good luck.
