  • Timing gear/chain?

    I gather the V8 has timing gears not chains. What do you order to have parts on hand? Any 'jober' for Studebakers have a kit?

    No 'full set kit', per se...
    But all the parts can be obtained from the vendors listed right here on this website...
    http://www.studebakervendors.com/
    For example:
    Fairborn Studebaker has the aluminum cam gear and reground cams available: http://www.fairbornstudebaker.com/
    Dave Thiebault makes a great billet aluminum Mallory distributor, and can rebuild your AFB and WCFB (and WW) carbs for you...
    Lionel Stone has some high performance parts reproduced: http://www.studebakervendors.com/lstone.htm
    Studebaker International, Myers Studebaker, Stephen Allen's Auto.. All have rings, bearings, gaskets, etc.
    Your local Jobber might even be able to get all the gaskets still made by Fel-Pro (except the rear main seal kit)..
    You can spend a lot of time shopping around, or you can use the resources listed right here on this site.

      The timing gear is not a typical part needing replacement even during a engine overhaul.

        AND..... since the crankshaft gear is steel and the other one is a fibre-plastic composition (unless it's the high-performance aluminun edition), it's almost NEVER that you need to replace the steel (crankshaft) gear.

        Miscreant at large.

          So, I imagine the fibre gear should be changed out during an engine rebuild, right? Is there any reason to move to the billet gear for a car that's going to be just a driver?

            Not unless you plan on keeping this car until your GRANDKIDS get it!
            It was only used on Avanti and the special order HD Truck engines.

              The Rock Auto Parts data base shows the rear main seal as Fel-Pro part # BS100531. There used to be a pictue of it; with the two little cork pieces. The Stude venders listed probably have them; or you can order from "Rock".
