  • Overhaul Gaskets

    Hi guys, well I'm getting ready to try and stop the oil leaks on the 50 Starlight Coupe. Studebaker International has a overhaul set for $99.95, but most other vendors are $160.00 a set, and they are fel-pro's. I called Stude Int. and they put their sets together from individual gaskets, and said they thought some were fel-pro. Is it worth the extra $60 to ensure all gaskets or fel-pro.


    Thanks, OkieBob

    P.S. I love my studebaker!!

    I will stand up for SI here. If they are selling these for overhaul sets, they simply can't afford to piss you off to where you won't go back to them for parts in the future. Underhanded dealings get told about pretty fast in the Stude community. I'll use any brand of gasket (even home-made!) if it fits and does the job.

    Miscreant at large.
    No deceptive flags to prove I'm patriotic - no biblical BS to impress - just ME and Studebakers - as it should be.

      Big guy, I could not agree more with you here. Ed Reynolds, and his people do a great job supplying things we need, and he will treat you as nice as you treat him I have found.

        Does anyone make or sell an oil pan gasket that is not "cork"?

          I wish they did, but I've never seen any.

            Thanks guys, I've got the gaskets ordered. Now I need help with the air filter. I assume (I know never assume anything) it's the original dry type air filter. The shop manual says there were both oil, and dry types. Where do you find an air filter. I've searched some vendors, checked the auto parts stores around here, and can't find one to fit.

            Thanks, OkieBob

              When you ask about the oil pan gasket are you talking about all of the gaskets or just the side rails. I have some side rail gaskets that are not cork.

                I got an oil pan gasket once in its original packaging. A sort of antique, I suppose, but in half a century the cork had shrunk and it would only fit a much smaller engine.....[xx(]

                  Primarily the side rails. That much would help a lot.
