I've seen and driven the car and it is exceptionally fine. Asking price is a fraction of what it would take to do one.

Push the tube in as far as it goes--the little tabs of brass on the side keep it from going in too far. It can not stick out into water pump.

Perhaps you are thinking of the gap between the rotor in the pump and pump housing. That must be small, perhaps 0,8mm so that the pump is efficient.

It a mounting bracket for an assist grip. It screws to the seat or pillar. The grip slides over it and dovetails and then the other end of the grip is held down with a visible screw. Can not recall the years

The big Nash is a '49 Ambassador Custom with its original paint and interior. The styling may be an acquired taste but the more one examines the car the method to the madness becomes apparent. Nash had a unique approach to every engineering question from structure to throttle linkage. If you ever have a chance to drive one do it. Very pleasant on the road and the Ambassador engine with its 7 mains and broad torque curve is a delight.

Was invited to take part at an "Independents Day" celebration at my buddy's storage facility to mark the completion of some very fine hand painted graphics by the local sign painter.

So, jumped in the ever faithful 51 200 and drove about 220 miles round trip to join Willys, Nashes, Hudsons, and Studebakers for a short program and terrific lunch in historic Pottstown PA--home of America's oldest continually operating brewery, Yuengling.

The 288 on the radiator has no significance. Have seen dozens and dozens of them on many different models.

The boot may absolutely be installed without removing the pin. Grease it up well inside and out and clamp the shaft in a vise. Stretch the small dia over the pin then repeatedly work the housing longitudinally on the shaft to , uh, milk the boot through the housing. Have done this many times but everything has to be greasy inside and out. The senior Detroits such as you have are easier than the junior Detroits as the housing is larger.

I removed a pin one time and swore I would never ever do it again. Needless to say it has to be perfectly centered so that the driveshaft runs true.

That is the one for just about every Dana axle imaginable.

I have been so inspired by the the stellar reliability of Pertronix that I wrote a poem about it for the benefit of someone on the Studebaker forum who was pondering making his 41 less reliable:

If you wish to despair,
and then tear your hair,
if your are wishing for grief
on the side of the street,
if pushing a car gives no pain to your joints,
buy a Pertronix and toss out your points.

Agreed. No further deaths will be tolerated. Is there a Mrs Berger or other family to whom one might send a card?
