  1. How much should be ordered?
  2. Why go to this trouble. I have 51 upper and lower arms with steel bushings. I am sure other have as well.
  3. Just curious where the factory R3 came from. Does any one know if there is a list of factory R3 engines?
  4. Can you provide serial number of car? Do you have production order from the Studebaker museum?
  5. Factory R3 serial numbers are in the form R3S followed by a letter for the month, followed by the number 3 (for 1963) followed by day of month. There may also be a 'B' number, most say it is located back by the distributor. This appears to be a rare factory block. That is why I stated that I would return it to R3 configuration. I wonder if it has the domed pistons and Howard's rods.
  6. If I decode the engine number correctly, the block is R3 assembled on 12/5/63. The head numbers seem correct for R3/R4. If it was up to me, I would attempt a full R3 restore and sell the R4 parts.
  7. My best guess is the plastic bushing at the end of the steering column is shot.
  8. I found it was used to coat the inside of several engine blocks I have rebuilt.
  9. Just went through this. There was a change where the inner was longer and the outer shorter. According to parts book, this occured around serial # 4904.
  10. Since the 64 version included a noise suppressor, I will say 1) supercharger noise
  11. Non R2 carb bases would not have the passages that keep the fuel mixture from seeping past the shafts under boost. Of course, that may be overkill and not necessary.
  12. Sounds like EPAS may be the way to go for a driver quality car. Cost appears to be about the same (for new components) as sourcing and installing the original hydraulic. Please check messages for contact info.
  13. do you need the entire column then?
