Pretty sure it was someone around here that as we used to say, flung a cravin on me to get one. My 2A and I have been together for 54 years now and the mystery has long since vanished so something new seemed like a good idea (trust me, don't apply that thinking to marriage). So I went to the inner web and there it was; love at first sight!! Let the fun begin. HEY, no one told me that they don't even make some of these parts anymore and the people that have some of them are holding them for ransom! I called up one of these folks that advertises as a Willys Parts business looking for an oil bath air cleaner for my 226 and luckily, I thought, he had one - but it was going to be expensive. Oh well, the Boss said to "give them clean air" so I bought it. It does fit, and it is an oil bath air cleaner, but when it left the factory it was riding on a Studebaker!! Yep, this Wagon business is a whole different ball game. And while we are on the subject, does anyone have one of those pot metal distributor bases that doesn't have the one little hold down tab broken off? And last but not least, does anybody know someone who is rebuilding a Studebaker??
