    MA 1960 studebaker M35A1

    Up for your consideration is one relatively unmolested example of an M35A1. LDS427 in running shape but with headgasket leak. No oil in water or water in oil but does lose some compression and oil from between the heads. Brakes are inoperative, front wheel cylinder blew when i first got the...

    M35A1 to sell or not to sell ??

    There :smile: I will see what i can do about exhaust measurements (and perhaps a better pic) Need to move the truck for that as where its parked is not really conducive to crawling under it this time of year, too muddy. While i have not been actively seeking a buyer its on the to do list now...

    M35A1 to sell or not to sell ??

    I'm here....sorta. Will respond to PM's and email but just don't have the time to hang out on here like i used to. The GF is now the WIFE..... and the "plow deuce" didn't plow last year. Fix headgasket VS just hang the plow on the M35A2C = the plow went on the other truck. I think we tallied...

    Rear Mounted Intake??? Why?

    Hmm, he has some interesting taste in mods. Looking at those pics i can't see much of a fuel tank hiding under that bed. No toolbox and battery box is just plain odd and will make getting in any out unnessicarily difficult. Not to mention where the heck do you keep your supplies to keep this old...

    Early LDT turbo

    Looks EXACTLY like the one on my LDS427, strangely enough i have the same turbo on my LDT465. Good turbos IMO, moves plenty of air, enough turbo sound to let you know its there but not make you deaf like a C will.

    Is this a M36?

    Well M16ty i guess that pic of "rangerdaves" truck above settles the overloading dispute, thats a LOT of logs on there. I knew he had a deuce log truck up here but never knew it was a m36 originally. Then again i don't think i have ever maxed out my truck with all the crap i can pile in the bed...

    Is this a M36?

    Wow blendmaster thats one heck of a portable tent you go there. A regular m35 is pretty roomy for impromptu camping expeditions but the m36 ****.

    m35a2 (ldt465) injector pump install questions

    Its really not that bad. Been there and done that twice while lying in melting snow with water and oil dripping on me. Just read the instructions carefully and line everything up, triple check to make sure it all stays lined up too. There are some odd angles and some things that will make you...

    Copper fuel return line

    Ditto on the DOT air brake line, was the only thing i could find around here that holds up to the odd variety of stuff i may dump in the tank. Currently only running the pieces from secondary to IP and return to filters but i see no reason why it wouldn't work for the whole run. Not particularly...

    Deuce Oil Leak Question

    Mine generally likes to leak more oil when its particularly hot. It certainly was a scorcher friday with sat and sun being toasty too. The thermometer on my car read 102 on the way home at 3pm. Haven't really seen much more than a few drips from that drain though, rear main would be the likely...

    Deuce breather tube fittings

    Eh, you aren't really missing much. As long as the vent line ends up there somewhere you should be just fine.
