  • Body / Glass: Hood weatherstrip

    1949 2R5

    Trying to find in the parts manual the weatherstrip that mounts along the front of the Instrument Board, that the rear of the hood sets down on. Didn't find it in either section 16 or 24. ??

    How about the same weatherstrip on the GT Hawks....looks like it is "nailed " down on both ends....what is this method?....what holds the "nail"?

      It is always much faster to locate parts like this that you know have been reproduced by looking in the S.I. Catalog.
      The Cowl Seal is 1294X2 Pg. 85, and the "Nails" are 1048X4 Pg. 82, "Screw" Nails, that is how they stay in the Cowl.

        Thanks. Do you know how many nail screws the cowl takes and are they used anywhere else?

          Only one on each end, I know of nowhere else they are used. You should find the remains of them in the holes near the Fenders.

              They are sometimes known as drive screws. Spiral thread, installed with a hammer.

                Okay, good timing Lou. I've just about finished the installation of A/C on the Hawk. It's about time to install the Hood, along with the cowl seal. I didn't take photos, so I need to ask how the cowl seal (298965) is installed. Is the hump toward the front or rear? The SI catalog doesn't show this.

                  Glue as well as nail? What type of glue is recommended for weatherstripping around and under the doors?

                    I prefer the black 3M super weatherstip adhesive. It doesn't show as bad as the yellow adhesive if one should put a bit too much on.

                      "Hump" as you refer to it goes toward the rear.

                      FWIW; All the currently available repros I've seen do not dimensionally meet the Studebaker Engineering drawing number 1757X for cowl weather seals, but are close and can be made to work.
