  • Got Brakes!

    I finally got the brakes working on my 52 Commander. I installed front brakes that came off of my 63 Lark parts car. The shoes looked real good, but I put new wheel cylinders on them.

    Now I am one step closer to driving to South Bend.Or at least being able to stop if I get there.

    They were a bolt in, but I noticed some differences, like the wheel bearing for the 63 is smaller than the one that came on the 52.



    My nephew came over and pumped the pedal.

    No deceptive flags to prove I'm patriotic - no biblical BS to impress - just ME and Studebakers - as it should be.

      yup, the bearings changed for the '56 model year but as you discovered the spindles are the same. I bet you will be quite pleased with the improvement in braking.

          Yes, it does. It will feel even better when I get the front clip back on!

              You can put it back on tommorow, the easter bunny can help you align it. Then off to paint! Sounds like a plan to me.
