  • Engine: 1927 big six motor

    Trying to rebuild 1927 big six. Can't get pistions out the top. Rod is bigger than bor. Dose crank have to come out and pull pistions from bottom ?has any one rebuilt one?will need rod and crank bearings. Where can they be found?

    Rod and crank bearings are poured babbitt. They are not shell bearings. Rods and block will have to go to a machine shop capable of pouring and line boring bearing material.

      Fran,
      Your area of Pennsylvania, between the Susquehanna at Harrisburg and the Delaware at Trenton, is a boiling pot of activity in the Antique Studebaker Club.
      I can give you a list of members who have no doubt already done what you're attempting. Jerry Kurtz in Dover, PA, (717) 308-1800), known here to all, owned a machine shop and, I don't know if he's done any babbiting but, I'm certain he can point you in the best direction. Or Kent Haberle in New Cumberland, (717) 774-2795, George Rohrbach in Center Valley, (610) 282-1278. All three of these are members of the "Bored" of Directors for the ASC and within shouting distance of Allentown. Do join the ASC if you haven't already. http://theantiquestudebakerclub.com/

        The crank does not have to come out to remove pistons. There is sufficient clearance to remove them past the crank.
