  • Brakes: Neatsfoot oil, how much?

    I have the neatsfoot oil and a 3 cc syringe. What volume for the hydrovac in my 57 President? I left my 56-57 shop manual in Montana. Thanks!

    Hello Jack, do you know if your Hydrovac is original with Leather inside or Rebuilt more recently with a Modern Neoprene Diaphragm?
    Only the Leather ones need the Neatsfoot Oil.

    The Studebaker 1956 Shop Manual says add ONE Ounce.

      Thanks Rich, nice to hear from you again. As far as I know it is original, as was the rest of the car, a running and fairly well-preserved survivor with little rust and add exterior coat of primer. My only mechanical modifications were to replace the right front wheel cylinder, a bit of work with the mufflers and exhaust pipes, and replace the incorrect Rochester 4 jet with a NOS WCFB. Merry Christmas to you and your family.

        Rich, on reconsideration, I remember the Hydrovac unit was the only thing in the car which looked NEW or freshly painted. It is probably a rebuilt unit, as the brakes work perfectly. Here is a photo I took of the engine bay before I did any modifications on the car. Thanks for the warning.

          A gold 1957 President. That is living. What body is it -2 dr., 4 dr., Classic - ? I only note a couple of incorrect items. The most important one is the battery. It appears to be a 24F instead of the correct 24 or 24C.

            I am pretty sure it's this Pres. Classic. No it's not Black, just the darkest Chev. BLUE Color available, now Restored.

                Not exactly a gold President Classic, more or less rose, or Rose Mist & Cream, which I believe were the original colors. An almost mint gold SPC was listed on "Bring a Trailer" a few months (or years) ago, which I copied. This is not the right place to show photos of Studebakers, but what the heck. Merry Christmas to all.
