  • Cleaning the cowl vents

    I accidentally found out a easy way to clean out the cowl vents on a Studebaker. I stumbled on to this idea while traveling top down at 70 MPH in my 63 Daytona convertible. I deciding I wanted some fresh air and opened both vents, I was rewarded with about a bushel of 10 year old dry leaves on my freshly vacuumed carpets.

    Yep, that'll do it! [}]

    BTW, does anyone know of a replacement for the drain hose on those vents? The hose under the firewall, that if not installed, can let water drain into your bellhousing. [xx(]

        Man, that's probably at the top of a lot of people's repro lists. Hey Ed, you out there listening?

          I was driving a '63 G.T. home I had just purchased in the desert and decided to see if the air conditioning worked. I was treated to a sand storm in the car at 70+. That slowed me down till my eyes stopped watering.
