          I'll E-mail you his phone number. Anybody else wanna contact Ken, I can put you in touch.
          Ken has wowed me with his very meticulous work - so much so that I've let him assemble several engines for me and friends of late. Every engine I've seen him do has run great. He would rather do nothing but Studebaker work but there's just not enough of that locally so I've been trying to steer Stude folks his way.
          I'm gonna have him on-line here in the not too distant future. I'm giving him my old computer once he gets a phone line to his shop.
          He's been driving Studes since the early 60s and even worked at the Avanti II operation in the early 70s.

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

                      It's purty, anywho. Air conditioning? (I notice the three pulleys and the hose fitting on the driver's side of the engine...)

                      As to the carb mounting pad, looks about right to me except the studs are too close together
