  1. I just went to Auto Zone and looked at those part numbers and they both had the 3 wire plug on the back, I think the one I'm looking for is the single wire.
  2. Thanks MFG I appreciate the information.
  3. Norm, I am in the midst of searching for that 1 wire alternator, the photo above, is it of your alternator? If I find one that fits and works I'll be sure to put the part number here.

  6. That's what I thought too, Thanks for pointing me in the right direction, I just wasn't googling the right questions
  7. That's another idea, I hadn't thought of that. Thanks Norm

  9. I wish I had a picture of this, but it's not hard to imagine. I was just thinking today what my earliest recollection of a Studebaker was, and it was my Grandpa Randall. He was a hard worker mostly working on someone else's farm. It was the mid to late 50's, Chris Craft and other boat manufacturers had developed some pretty cool looking boats, designs taken from the car industry, noses, fins, tops, interiors. Well my grandpa hard working and broke could never afford something like that, so he made his own, he had a wood boat, found a wrecked Starlight Coupe, cut the top off married the two together and used it as the windshield, I remember thinking how cool that was, and how smart my grandpa was.
  10. I am thinking about adding A/C to the system, because it is an R2 it will have to be electric, and an electric condenser, I don't even think the old 40amp system will support it, I'm wondering if the 60amp will or not. Rick
  11. Has anyone out there installed an Electric Compressor, if so how hard was it. If I do this little project I will need to find all of the interior parts to make this work, and i will need help finding all of that too.
  12. I currently have a 1963 R2, I am looking for the interior parts, blower, controls, vents etc. I will be installing an electric compressor, and condenser.
  13. Thanks, You're right, it's the last of the real ones, it's actually as nice as it looks.
