  • Thanks Sonny!!! and every one else!!

    Its so nice to be able to get assistance in keeping the "Hawk" at her best,metoo!! Sonny did you get my message and pics that I sent to your web site? Thanks again everyone!!! So the 58 "Stude" engine will accept the supercharger--- with no modification. Thats great news for me,as its in the Hawk and running well!! Please let me know what I have to change over to accept the super charger mounting any help is appreciated. Frank Just to let you guys know,I had a 50's Rock"N"Roll Band for 15 yrs here in Maine,called Frankie&The Studebakers-- Also to that gent looking to change his frame on the "Bullet Nose" I have seen that Starlight Coupe with the s-10 frame from N.H. He told me that the body just about bolted up stock and the frame ends came right out to accept bolting on the bumpers. It looked completly stock and sweet-- Thanks again

    What you're gonna have to change over is the water pump manifold, the tension arm and bracket, the carb and it's enclosure, The intake manifold if the engine has a 4-bbl or late 2bbl manifold on it, the carb linkage, and you'll have to install the cast iron crankshaft pulley to drive the blower. It also requires a different air cleaner as well.[:I]
    The crank pulley's gonna need longer bolts to accomodate it's installation. That means pulling the crank hub to change those bolts for longer ones.[}]
    Sure glad to hear you're keeping your Stude ALL Stude and not using alternate power. Alternate power might be alright for some, but the Stude engine is as much a part of the Stude as the car's sheet metal!
    And make sure that that engine coming out is put to good use and not just scrapped![}]

      Bob/Mr. Biggs gave a good answer. Also add the oil filler tube to things to change.

        Yup - and too..... you'll have to re-plumb the partial flow oil filter that was on the old, straight oil filler neck. With the blower, the oil filter moves to mount on the back of the carb box.
