Hi guys
I posted a couple questions on the other site, while I’m waiting for someone to answer….. I thought I would try again here for a quicker response.
I have a 28 Dictator I need to get some help on. I hope I successfully included pictures, as I'm doing this I can't seam to find out how to add pictures. One problem I have is the previous owner installed a universal carburetor, but did not hook up the linkage. In one of the pictures, There is a lever with two eye holes in it at the right of the steering column. Does any one know what should be hooked up to them.
The other question, my steering wheel only has one lever on it, should there be more?
I bought book the service manual bulletins book , and I was disappointed with the information inside. It didn’t give me the information I wanted to know. Does anyone know who has a good service manual for these cars? Oh, one more thing, where to I put the engine oil.

Did you try posting your question on the Antique Studebaker Club site?
They are dedicated to the pre-WWII Studebaker.

On a 28 Dictator you put the oil in at the base of the distributor/water pump. There is a small flap to move side ways and a port under it.
The lever with the two holes on the bottom of the steering column is for the acelerator linkage. There should be one rod running to the accelerator pedal which is a round double or single button and one rod going to the carb. Originally there were three levers on the steering wheel. one was a hand throttle attached to the above described linkage. The other two were for lights and spark advance. These are all described in the owners manual.

The only service manuals for this ear of studebakers is the 1927 Studebaker Standard Service Reference text. It is a many voolume set. The bulletins I think you have were just suppliments to the original set of books. The owners manual (which is available in reprint for the type III) is an excellent starting point for mechanics on the car. Much more details on engine rebuilding etc than you see in later years.

Thanks Studeboy,
I listed the same question 6/30, on the antique studebaker club site, I'm still waiting for a responce there. When I'm looking for information in a timly manor this site seams to be the best.

I'll invest in some more books and manuels. What I bought, is pretty much useless.
