Unfortunately, the Studebaker is not going to be an easy fix. The head is cracked and will need to be replaced. Luckily, replacement parts for a Flathead 6 cylinder Studebaker are not impossible to find!
After removing the head and visually inspecting the block, we decided that it is definitely worth saving, but a rebuild is in order. Nothing worth having comes easy!
I'm pretty sure the prior inhabitants are upset at us!
