    Clark,(what you said) guess they would just need to forget to chrome all of them??? I was able to find two n.o.s. painted caps for my new engine!

      I think that the chrome ones are stock from another brand. That is why they are available. They are not really Studebaker reproductions.

        Why not just paint a chrome one, after scuffing it up a bit, in any color that you like?

          Soak the caps in lacquer thinner for a couple of days. Protect your self, blow with compressed air. If stll cruddy, soak some more.

            The non chromed breather caps in question are nothing more than 50's thru 60's GM AC Delco breather caps that were on all of the Chevy, Buick, Olds, Pontiac and yes, Cadillacs. Any parts house for the above marque will have them. Studebaker didn't try to re-invent the wheel, they went with what was already on the shelf.

              Well now, that's interesting info!

              I went over to Rock Auto and looked up the breather cap for a '63 Chevy with 327, and here's what it showed me: Stant #10061, which does indeed bear a striking resemblance to the Stude widget. $2.95. Still chromed, but I'd feel a lot better about scuffing the plating off a $3 part than I would a $30 part

                I don't see the word 'Oil' stamped in the part in Clark's picture nor do I see a rivet head, as it looks smooth. Just depends how picky you are about originality. Perhaps there are other manufacturers of these that more closely resemble the Studebaker part?

                  The NOS GM is close, but has the AC logo.

                    NAPA has a breather cap that is identical to the Stant 10061 that is cad plated and not chrome which should make it paintable. I use them on my cars, while not correct for show cars, they have a better filter element in them. Bud

                          That's very peculiar Dave. Do you by chance fill your engine with 7IO M0E?

                            According to The Cooperator he should be using 710 773HS
