  • Progress on the 52

    It was a nice warm day today, so I made lots of progress on my 52 Commander. I had decided to paint the engine red, in keeping with my 2 steps forward and one step back philosophy. []

    I bought some finned valve covers at York and I put them on. I was going to use the 52 water pump manifold and had it all painted, but when I tried to install it, it wouldn't fit. Studebaker had changed the water pump manifold when they put the fuel pump in the timing gear cover. I was going to use the 52 manifold so I could use the 52 top radiator hose. The water outlet on the engine and the inlet on the radiator are different sizes and I can't find a radiator hose to fit. I think I will get the radiator shop to put a larger inlet neck on my radiator.

    I started it for a brief moment, but didn't want to let it run, because I didn't put water in the radiator in fear of the radiator hose leaking.

    I still have a long way to go if I am going to drive it to South Bend [:0]

        There are no turns allowed in my garage

        Hey Gary, Did you go look at that 58 Packard on eBay?
