  • Engine: 58 intake question

    Does anyone have a picture of the tube from the airfilter to the carborator on a 58 commander with a v8. I am starting from scratch any any information would be helpful

    Thanks Doug

      They had a 2 bbl carb and an optional 4 bbl carb, They also had a dry type filter like pictured, and an oil bath type. The tube from the carb to the filter was just part of the filter.

      And WELCOME to this forum!!

        Thanks That gives me something to work with and it is the 2 barrel that is on it. As I get deeper into it I know I will be back with more questions, but it is running for now

          There are great pictures of it in the chassis parts manual. Studebaker parts manuals are worlds ahead of other brands. You might be pleasantly surprised if you looked in one. I recommend them to everyone who works on Studebakers.
