    The New York Swap Meet in Dunkirk, NY, Sept. 24-25 is the new York.

    No, unfortunately, York is dead. The Reedsville swap meet is still planned for this fall.

    Don't overlook your FLAPS. I was in NAPA to pick up an oil filter and asked if they had a rebuild kit for the rear brake cylinders on my '41. I knew I had gotten them there 15 years ago. Turns out that part had been discontinued but they had new ones on the shelf for $25 or so. OK, I guess I can live with not having to rebuild mine. It has been years but this same NAPA had a new Carter fuel pump for my car with ethanol-proof rubber in stock.

    523140 ( Under that)
    11 25 N Stamped on top side of motor 4EI0II9
    It's a flathead v6 /Cut/
    The Number that matters is the Engine Serial number stamped into only THAT One Block: 4E10119, that is shown on our "Resources" Link from the SDC Website Main Page, and under "Vehicle Identification", then "6 Cyl. Engine Identification" as a 1960 "245" c.i.d. Commander Six.

    The Date Cast Code: 11 25 N breaks down to be Nov. 25, 1959 which would be correct for a 1960 Truck.
    The 5E-T4 CAB is a 1960 Standard Champ Cab.
    We will know a little more when we get the Actual TRUCK Serial Number, from the Serial Number Plate welded on the Cab "B' Pillar.
    But it is looking like everything may be Original & matching for a 1960 Champ.

    FYI: A Flathead in line Engine is an "L" Head, not a V6.

    Okay thank you all for your help, contacted the vendor in Arizona, told me what I need to do for the distributor, it's really just a melted wire. Hopefully that will solve some issues

    That's what I know, now apparently I will need a distributor, seems a wire inside the distributor is now melted thru.
    needs- floor pans ( needs redone) arm rests
    Brakes work need motor to run,lol

    The green one, straight 6 runs,
    Doesn't stop haven't looked into it( that's why I was curious about the brakes)
    Needs floor pan and bed floor.

    Get you a nice new yellow legal pad and start with a list of what you need. Place them in order of needs like stop and go, function, and beauty. You original post covers two things: if all you need is brake parts and arm rests, you are indeed most fortunate. Get prices for everything then it will help you decide what to do.

    Today I went to look at a 52 Commander(s). There were several different cars there and all of them had some parts removed in no particular order. Some had door panels removed (one of my biggest gripes), brake drums removed without any replacement parts and so on. You get the idea.

    A body man told me once when I was learning to work on cars over 50 years ago, don't try to eat the whole cake at one time. Do one panel at a time and you do end up with all the work done eventually. He said" you just need one bite of the cake to see if you enjoy it". At that time, everyone my age the solution to a mechanical problem was to rebuild the carburetor or take the heads off when all it took most times was a simple electrical/ignition diagnosis.

    Let us know what model/year Studebaker you have and you will see many experts to help. If you haven't joined the Studebaker Drivers Club and your local chapter it will help.

    Dale, the closest place for you would probably be Westmoreland Restorations, on Route 22 just west of Blairsville.

    The best place to go may be where you are. Give us an idea of what you need. Most of us have a parts stash, that we are willing to share.

    If you haven't already, join the Studebaker Drivers Club (see the link at the top of this page). You can ask them to send you a copy of the March Turning Wheels Magazine. This is the annual "Vendors" issue and is filled with sources for parts and service.
    Excellent advice! I wish I had thought of that (SDC vendors issue).
