  • Engine: restoring my air cleaner on my '52 Commander 224 V-8

    Somebody please show me a pic, or three, of a correctly restored , or survivor original '52 224 V-8 with the air cleaner. I am ready to restore mine and I want to know where the decal goes. My a/c has a dent right in the front that I have to deal with then it will be ready for paint. I have the "climatizer" decal on my heater blower motor and the anti-freeze tag on the radiator filler neck already. Thanks a bunch.
    Happy motorin' to you and yourn.

    A ‘52 should have a 232”. Oil Bath or Dry Type air filter?

            Studebaker International sell the 52s green engine paint in spray cans, it isn't cheap once the shipping charges are applied.

              My engine is painted, just the air cleaner is left to do. I might get scolded, again, for the engine being the wrong shade of green, but it's painted. I plan to remove the carb to adjust the float level and the carb will get some detailing while I have it off. Also, my ground from the engine block to the battery is currently a black cable, which I will replace with a braided strap. I think I will paint the Delco alternator semi-gloss black to make it stand out a little less too. I might even wipe the lettering off of the new plug wires to hide their "newness".
