Welcome, Glenn

As others will tell you, the members of this forum like to drive their cars on a daily basis, meaning primarily post-war, hydraulic brakes, etc.
Some pre-war discussion is done through the AACA forum
http://forums.aaca.org/postlist.php?Cat=0&Board=UBB24
But there's not a great deal of activity there for a specific question on a specific marque.
The Antique Studebaker Club deals specifically with pre-war cars and, while they don't have an active forum, the contacts made there would be better able to address your request.

This is something you believe to be a Studebaker product? Look for an engine number stamped into a smooth area at top left of engine block above water manifold. Identifying it will help locate the correct manual.
