Blog over de restauratie van mijn '50 Studebaker Commander

NOS Hill-Holder

From this moment on I will try to write my blog in English. Quite a few of my US and Oz fellow Studebaker friends asked me to write in their language so they could follow the restoration. It was, after all, a bit peculiar. A blog with the name “DutchStudeResto”, clearly English, written in Dutch. I am quite sure most of my Dutch readers know enough English to be able to follow me anyway.

I could buy a Hill-Holder From Jan Telkamp of de Laak Molen. “New Old Stock”: Unused in the original box. It was not exactly the right model but I could transplant the internal organs to the body of my Hill Holder. It looks great and in a few years, when the car will finally drive, I’ll know if it works. 

I also cleaned a handful of other parts like the brake master cylinder push rod between the brake pedal and the master cylinder, loads of bolts and nuts, washers, pins and bushings. Most of them are shining like a turd in moonlight (als een drol in de maneschijn). 

Tomorrow I’ll be on standby duty so if nobody gets ill, I’ll do some more polishing.

By the way, this is wat the parts looked like before I took care of them.

    Hoi Kees,
    great work, but 1 question for a “leek” (NL) like me. What is a hill holder?

    • Focco,

      That is a “thing” that keeps the car from rolling backwards on an incline. (De hellingproef wordt dan een makkie)
