  • 52 Starliner update

    You may recall my post about a backfiring Studebaker causing the the cops to come to my home after a report of "shots fired." The car had been described on ebay as having a tired engine and poorly running and I just parked it until it's turn came up. today, before giving up on the engine, I figured I'd checked the easy stuff first. I pulled the carb apart, but it looked great, time to check the ignition. I pulled the distributor, and found the point gap was maybe .002, adjusted it to .014 and now no longer have a "tired engine". Ebay folk amaze me.

    Great story- I've seen plenty like that! 'Course, there's the other side- my favorite: "Solid car with just the usual rust..." [xx(]

    I once looked at a 67 Impala SS that "needed a tuneup"... started but had a hard skip, plus an occasional clunk... turned out to have a broken rod!

        My favorite seller's line (delivered when you go to see the car and something untoward happens):

        "Gee, it's never done that before!"

                Hi John. If that 52 is going to be staying with you for a while drop me a line with the serial # and a few stats on it. Still collecting info on these for the registry at www.studebakerhardtop.com Point me towards a link on your site where I can swipe a picture of it too!
