  • Engine: Studebaker259

    Hello, I bought a used 259 and noticed theirs no timing tab down by the lower pulley. Does anyone have a pic of that so I can see what's supposed to be there. Thanks

    The pointed thing at the top of the pic is the timing tab/pointer for a 259 Studebaker V8.

      That just means that you have to clean off the Vibration Damper to see the UDC and the IGN Mark that should line up with the Pointer on the Timing Cover when your Timing Light fires.

        I use a white paint marker and smear it across the grooves on the damper. Wipe it off and the excess stays in the indented lettering and timing marks. Much easier to see than black.

          Thanks for the input everyone. The pointer I see in the pic is what I am missing, that's why I was confused. Was thinking it was a tab or something like that . Can you purchase one of these anywhere? Thanks

            No it was never sold separately, but all you need is a small screw that fits, then grind the head off and grind it to a point.
