M5 R/A Cork Washer

by

I would like to replace that cork washer(part number 191023) that sits inside the retainer on my '47 M5 that tucks into the recess of the rear brake drum. Do you guys know a source for that or would you suggest making one up from stock? The thing is, it needs to be a perfect circle. Any words of wisdom or past experience? It's illustration number 1002-29 on pg. 133 in the Parts Catalog. The one that's in there now appears to be cork anyway. It's pretty tired looking.

Saved by modern technology!

by

Fortunately, the old-style cork part was replaced by a felt seal. Use part # 197591. About $5.
The retainer/felt-washer assembly is part # 193049, sometimes available from Studebaker parts vendors. Call Studebaker International to check stock and price.

The inner seal is part # 516329, about $19 from Studebaker vendors.

for those who might be interested

by Peter

We just went through the 2 hour tour at the Charlotte Nascar track including all 3 tracks here but there are smaller ones inside the large track, It was an experience for me as I'm not very interested in this stuff, got to also see the media boxes, my sisterinlaw got a shot of one of the training cars crossing the finish line at about 110 miles per hour, I tried for the same shot but don't have the camera she now has, I traded her one of my camera's for one of the others I gave her a few years back. We all enjoyed ourselves, also went to art Gallery owned by Sam Bass, some pretty neat Auto Racing pictures in there along with his collection of Music Artists etc.
Were spending one more cheap night here for $25 a night tomorrow we head for Lenny's in Atlanta or just noth of that city for a quick visit then down to New Orleans as we have camp spot there booked for Friday and Saturday evenin $33 a night all inclusive, from there to Dallas then Sante Fe, Alburquque, Flagstaff, S. RIm Grand Canyon, Zion then work our way into Oregon.
Looking forward to getting home to cooler weather even if it rains 90*F and higher is not fun for me but the Gals are liking it.

DO NOT LEAVE....

by ChrisM5

Since you are in 'race mode' don't ,eave Charlotte (well Mooresville actually) until you go to Richard Childress; DEI, and Roger Penske race shops.
About 'all' the NASCAR teams are headquartered there within a few miles of one another. They have a map that shows you exactly how to get to each one. If you have a 'favorite' driver, I figure you could find their shop easy.
I forgot to mention Hendrick Motorsports and JR Racing also....

For Sale: 1938 State Commander Sedan

by

I know, slightly off topic, but an afternoon with a Sawzall will have it converted to a pickup truck! wink.gif

But seriously! I got this car a couple of years ago from a friend who needed to make space. He was actually talking about junking it, but I think the car is WAY too good for that ignoble fate...

The good: looks to be totally complete except for the headlamp inserts, tail lamp lenses, grill badge and one piece of exterior stainless steel trim.

The bad: engine is stuck, driver's side floor board and lower trunk lid have major rust issues. The driver's side rain gutter is pretty well rusted away and the right front fender has some poorly repaired impact damage, but otherwise the body seems miraculously solid and straight.

As I understand it the car was in restored condition as some point, but then was left exposed in in a backyard in a very damp and foggy area of the city. Last registration sticker on the license plate dates from 1980. I do have a title for this car.

Now I need to make some room so this car is again available. Hopefully one of you can revive it or at least use it's parts to bring back another example of this beautiful, art deco model. Car is located in San Francisco and I'd like to get $1,000 for it, but any reasonable offer will be considered. Please contact me off list if interested.

Regards-HW

serial plates

by Skip Lackie

The vehicle serial plate provides the vehicle serial number, now called the VIN. The "28" indicates the wheelbase is 128". The body tag "C2" just tells you that the truck has a standard (not deluxe) cab, and provides the serial number of the cab itself. They were used to keep track of running changes in the cabs and have no other significance.

M15 Timken Rear Axle Question

by

Got home from vacation in OR and noticed some oil on the right rear rim and little puddle between the dual on the driveway. Also oil on the axle shaft end. Fairly sure it is not brake fluid as it does not smell like it and is thick like gear oil. Have not taken it apart yet though.

I know that bearings in these old Timkens are not lubricated by the differential gear oil like a modern Dana 60 but can some of the gear oil get out to the end of the axle tube to where the bearings are? If so is this normal?

When I had the hubs off last I greased the bearings and noticed that there was cone shaped sheet metal formed to direct any oil that came out of inner bearing seal to be directed to the outer rim and away from the brakes. Thought that was clever but would have been better to use a modern seal instead of felt...

Timken Rear Axle

by

I do believe that the rear axle lube can travel down the axle tubes and into the hub, especially if the truck is run or parked on a slope. There is supposed to be a gasket between the axle end and the hub and also a seal under the inner adjusting nut and the outer bearing to prevent contamination of the grease with axle lube. I know that there is some oil in the axle tubes on my M16 because it is seeping out of the joint between the axle tube and the differential housing. I got some original gaskets for mine but I didn't like the fact that they were thin paper and I wasn't sure they would really make a secure seal, so I used them as a pattern to make my own gaskets. Unfortunately I used a material that is real sticky when compressed between two surfaces and now my axles are so "glued" to the hub it is very difficult to remove them. If I pull my axles again I'm going to use a different material, but they sure don't leak.

Today I

took it all apart and the differential gear oil was traveling down the axle tube and into the hub where it finally made it past the lame outer seal and diluted the bearing grease.

Has anybody thought about drilling a small weep hole in the hub so the gear oil can drain out before it gets to the bearings?

Axle Oil

by

I'm not sure that would really be a good idea, because if the truck was running on a slope or parked on a slope the oil would drain out all over everything. I do believe, though, that the oil level in the differential is actually slightly above the bottom of the axle tubes when the differential is full and the truck is on the level. Maybe the more practical solution would be to just not fill the differential to the bottom of the fill plug, but rather maybe an inch down. I'm sure there would still be more than enough lube for the gears.

Roger, you are correct, that would be

a problem but maybe better than taking everything apart just to regrease the bearings because of gear oil contamination. It is a good idea to fill it a bit less. I would just have to check it more often to be sure it doesn't run to low.

Packard engine

I have two 352 Packard engines to sell for another person. One is complete less carburetor and generator, I have not yet seen all the parts for the second one but believe them to be there. One engine is complete with an Automatic transmission, As near as I can tell the other is equipped with a 3 speed Overdrive. It is my belief the engine with the Automatic trans could be running with a little effort. The Overdrive equipped engine is not yet at my house. the picture is of the Automatic equipped. These are being offered here first. If you are an interested BUYER write me at my blue name above.

Cab "skates" available

by Phil

8 or 10 years ago Gary Ash was really nice to me and loaned me the "skates" he built to move his M5 cab around on while he was working on it. He sent them to me free of charge (from his place on the east coast all the way out to Washington State) and after all this time I finally have my cab finished and am in the process of building it out. I have it mounted to the frame now and am working on the interior. I am happy to return the favor Gary did for me by sending these along to someone else who is at that stage in their project. They are really handy, you can push the cab around with one hand once you mount it on these. Its my privilege to pass along some of the great goodwill expressed here on this forum.

Are there any Skates/dolly plans out there?

by Doug

I have seen plans for body dolly's for Corvettes when doing frame off restorations. Just curious if the Studebaker Truck world has any such plans to fab up some skates or dollies. I have never taken the cab off yet, so maybe it is just a flat platform and no fancy dolly or measurements are needed. I have a 4 post lift that came with those big casters to move it around the shop. I have been wanting to re-purpose those casters for something that I would actually use.

Re: Not to steal Gary's thunder, this is what I fabricated....

by

When I was working on my C cab I had to be able to move the cab around in my driveway which has a some loose pebbles. Instead of solid casters I went to Harbor Freight and bought 4 small pneumatic wheels and bolted them to a 4 sided 2x6 frame. I made the frame so the cab would straddle the frame slightly. This is a very simple design. Just over lap the 2x6's at each corner, using the wheel mount plate transfer drill 2 holes through the 2x6's and attach the wood and the wheel with (2) 5/16 carriage bolts. Repeat on all 4 corners. Done.
You will have to add some blocks of wood to locate some mounting/leveling points. What is real handy is this dolly can be easily pushed onto a trailer and transported to the sand blaster or the paint shop. My finish body guy used it in the paint booth after which I rolled it onto our trailer and took it home.

Studebaker Int. has the part I believe

by MW

I can't offer any advice on how to do it though. But, I'd be interested in how it turns out for you if you do it. The '61 Champ I purchased recently has a fixed window in it currently and the seal has shrunk so likely needs some attention. I was thinking I would put the sliding window in if I was going to go through the trouble. I should have all the main hard parts with the extras that came with the truck, but will also need the wear parts. If you don't mind, please let us know how it goes for yourself.

I found all it is good for is to blow the dirt and debris that's in the bed into the back of your head, so if you open the passenger side, they'll want to be put out at the side of the road soon. Needless to say, I find it really unpleasant and never open mine.

SLiding window is the best and cheapest AC on can have

I had the same in my 63 Champ, I would open the vents then open the slider about 3" on either side and we got real good air movement giving us cool without installing a AC unit.
Mark C. installed AC unit in his 49 2r5 but he also installed a pop out window so we turned the AC unit off and popped the back window and opened the vent windows and right away we had cooling

Re: 64 champ sliding back window

by Ted

Installing the sliding glass rear window in a T cab truck is very easy. The parts are available at Studebaker International. The parts I have not found are the locks. If you will pay close attention when you take the glass out you will find it goes back in just as easy. Consider replacing the rubber as well. The channel works around the top and down each side and there is a single piece for the bottom. The lock clips help hold the side channel in place.

Quite a few things to consider

by Keith Mifflin

My thoughts on the most probable causes:
Spark plugs
Plug gap
Spark plug wires
Points floating
coil
Fuel filter
Sufficient fuel supply (read this as not getting enough gas from the tank)
Distributor shaft play
Carburetor float levels

I'd start with a good complete tune up with all new components, new fuel filter and then work down the list. If it were a vacuum leak or valve issue it really should show up much more at idle than under load.

I had the same

by

problem recently after changing several things. The problem turned out to be the spark plugs were gaped to great. The problem would go away when I switched to points from Pertronix. The other thing I noticed was that the tach would read high with points as opposed to Pertronix. Reset the gap on the plugs to 0.030" and problem gone. I think the 6 volt Pertronix is not such a good ignition and couple that with to greater a gap on the plugs some missing occurred at higher RPMs. The other thing I noticed is that the engine runs much smoother with points compared to Pertronix. Yes, the timing is the same... I now have a plug and play solution for swapping out points vs Pertronix with just the points plate screws and one connector. Timing is maintained. The only issue I have is the points plate screws are the standard slotted and a little hard to get started while the distributor is in the truck. I'm thinking that Phillips screws and maybe make them captive with "E" clips...

Model 2R10-122
2....designates the trucks built for the 1949-1953 model years by the Studebaker Corp. of South Bend, Indiana,
R....designates the series of Studebaker trucks built for the 1949-1954 model years,
10...code for a nominal rating for a 3/4 ton chassis with a 8 foot box or other styles of bodies provided by the factory or by an after-market supplier, and
122..indicates the wheelbase of the chassis, in this case 122 inches measured from the center of the front axle to the center of the rear axle. All 3/4 ton chassis built during the 2R run were of this length.

Serial number R10-19949
R....same as above,
10...same as above, and
19949..means the sequential order in which this R10 truck came off the assembly line. In the 1949 production run, 21,000 R10's were manufactured. Your truck was 1051 units from the end of the model year.

Question please

by

Hi guys!

I am a Studebaker fan, and have been all my life. As a matter of fact the only car I have ever owned (car, not truck as I own one of those as well, but not running.) has been a 1957 Studebaker President Broadmoor station wagon which currently has 623,000 miles on it and runs perfectly!

So in my case it has been one lifetime, one car! My Studebaker goes everywhere, since it is all I have it is all I drive. But now I am going to rebuild the truck, and I am going to modify it to be my retirement vehicle. I am 69 and it is time to have some fun.

I want to put an independent suspension under the front end in place of the I beam that it now has. I also want to convert it from a 6 foot bed to an 8 foot bed which I will modify.

I have two questions:

I have seen a Studebaker truck that had a Chevy independent front end under it and at the time the owner told me that he had no trouble bolting it into place. He also told me what it was, but I have forgotten the year.

So, my first question is: Can any of you please tell me what year of Chevy independent suspension bolts up the the Studebaker frame?

My second question is, can anyone please tell me what the distance is from the outside of the bed (the very end) to the center of the rear axle?

Many thanks for any help you may be able to give me!

Hans

PS...I am looking for an 8 foot bed as well, the wider one, and free from damage.

There's the Fat Man MII front clip....... but any....

by Eric L

S10 front end I understand will work. I would probably find a later one so it isn't so worn out. But have you considered the FatMan MustangII front clip?

I saw that one

by

Hi Eric!

Many thanks for the reply.

I have considered both of those, I saw the 3rd party stuff on the net which uses the Mustang front end and wrote them an inquiry to see if they considered their product suitable for a working truck rather than a street rod. They never answered me.

I am wary of those light duty front ends because I plan to really use this truck to haul a camper and a lot of fuel, so I need something able to handle the weight.

But I appreciate your suggestions.

By the way, I have a frame for a T style cab available if anyone should want one. No running gear, just the frame.

MII same size as full size vehicles......

by Eric L

Hans.... I understand your concern but I've read a few articles that indicate MII front ends have larger ball joints and tie rod end studs than those of similar sized subframes and are the same size used on all of their full size vehicles.

Course, I'm by no means an expert so I guess I would try and contact FatMan again. They got back to me when I inquired about where a local shop was that uses their products. Unfortunately the closest was up in San Jose... not very close by any means!

Anyways, good luck!

Understood

by

Hi Eric,

Many thanks again for your reply.

I will do as you suggest and try and contact them once again.

The reason why I need the front end to be very solid is that I want this truck for some serious travel. I have designed a camper for it that would provide me with everything I, and a friend, would need to take some long trips.

And while the camper will compress to just 6" above the cab roof when closed, it still would weigh up with 50 gallons of water, and a large tank of propane and 100 gallons of fuel in the truck and a large propane tank there as well.

I will see if the front clips they make will take that kind of load over unimproved roads (our first trip is being planned to Tierra del Fuego) I don't want any failures especially being a long long way from home!

Again I thank you for your consideration.

Hans

PS...The frame I had available needs to be withdrawn as it turns out that I can use it after all!

Not suitable

by

Hi Eric!

I did get a reply from Fat Man Products. As it turns out the company that did not get back to me was a different one altogether!

Fat Man Products replied immediately and sent me an e-mail with links to products made specifically for Studebaker trucks.

However they did not address my question regarding suitability for heavy loads.

At that point I asked the question again, and they stated that their products were made for street rods only, and that after making a conversion the truck would no longer be able to carry heavy loads.

So...I am still looking. But I appreciate very much your reference since I was not aware of that company at all.

For what you're doing, a chassis swap would be the best solution

by

I'm not a fan of chassis swaps because far too many start, get overwhelmed and another Stude goes to the crusher.

However, if you're going to Terra del Fuego, then put an entire S10 chassis under your Stude. Get the IFS, PS, EFI, disc brakes all at once. Much easier than trying to upgrade one piece at a time.

Considered that

by

Hi Jack!

I have considered doing that...and you are right regarding it being a work saving option. But it would not be a Stude. I know that using a front end off of something else would not be a Stude part either, but at least the rest would be.

I want to retain as much as possible of the original mark, I do not feel bad about upgrading things using 3rd party suppliers like Turner for brakes, etc.

I have looked at independent front ends made by 3rd party folks and while they do look solid, it seems that the makers don't consider them solid enough to carry real weight, something which I would need to do.

I still have not made a final decision about this, right now I am cleaning out the garage to give me the room I need to start work. But I do thank you for your suggestion. I appreciate learning about other methods from people who may have thought about or already done what I intend to do.

and if one of them is y0urs did it not rust away as they were bad for rusting in Canada? Lew were between Harrisburg and Gettysburg in a Campground, the one in Hershey kicked everyone out because the Girl Guides are showing up there this weekend and next weekend so we went to the Civil war Museum in Harrisburg and if none of you have not been there your missing your history Lessons that were not in the books in school.
We also did the Hershey Museum,we also went to the Chocolate Store for Lunch and sugar free candies for me, While in Harrisburg we went to the supposedly largest Material Store in the USA but it is not the largest the one in Portland Oregon is the largest that we know of. Then the Gals did the Tanger Outlet stores in Hershey before Harrisburg, running a 26' MH through all those narrow streets was dicey but Judy did a pretty good job even if I have to say so.
Tomorrow it will be Gettysburg then we work our way to Bob Feaganes place in N.C. Can anyone suggest what to see in Gettysburg?

Tubeless 19.5" x 6" Budd #89340

by

The above motor home wheels generally work well on the Ms having the 5 lug x 8" pattern, assuming your truck has a stud piloted mounting. John Weinrich has them on his truck. The 19.5" tubeless wheel has the exact same center disc as the 17" tube types that were sourced on similar Ms. The 2.5" extra diameter comes from the use of a drop center 15° profile outer rim. If you wish to stay with pure original tube types the 17" x 4.33" Budd #44820 is another option. Both an 8R19.5" radial and 7.50" x 17" tube type bias ply tire will have a 33.5" - 34" outside diameter. Stu

M5 Wheel Cylinder Sizes

by

I'm getting ready to send off some M5 wheel cylinders for renovation. I happen to have some spare axles around from accruing parts over the years and thought I'd take off some of those wheel cylinders also and check to see what kind of shape they're in and maybe get some of those rebuilt. Everything has stepped cylinders of course, but I noticed that some are 1 1/8", some 1 1/4" and some 1 3/8". I was surprised to see that. The parts book doesn't seem to indicate different sizing throughout the years. Each cylinders small end measured 1". Are those differing sizes anything to take into account? The truck I'm working on had the 1 1/4" ones. That's not to say they were the ones that were supposed to be in there. Heck, whoever was in there before me, reassembled the whole kit & kaboodle wrong anyway. What say you guys?

Cylinder Size Explanation

by

Hello Greg,

You can find some help on the bottom of page 173 in the M series parts manual. It shows the diameters listed in the piston rebuild section. They are:
- Large front cylinder: 1 3/8"
- Large rear cylinder: 1 1/4"
- Small cylinder (all): 1"

While it does show a listing for an 11/16" on the small rear cylinder of larger trucks like the M15, I see no listing for a 1 1/8" option.

I hope this helps.

Ford Wheel Cylinders on an M5

by

Hi Jim,

The C&G site is excellent. While the exact sizes are not shown on the item pull up; a 1947 wheel cylinder looks just like the Wagner Lockheed units used on our M5's. Has anyone checked to see if they carry the 1 1/4 x 1 units as well? If they don't what would be the real harm in using the 1 3/8 x 1 units on the rear as well as the front, if there's clearance?

You would be adding cubic volume to the overall brake circuit, which could result in a lower overall brake pedal position to achieve positive stop, but perhaps that could be managed.

I would really appreciate your thoughts on this one. It could be a good find for Greg and the rest of the M5 truck farmers.

Sincerely,

jh

An Intro, Pics, a Question, And A Possible Trade?

by Norman

Howdy all!

Figgered I'd better introduce myself formally, been lurking here for a while and gathering tons of info.

Names Scott, 1959 model. Born and raised in Buchanan, MI about 10 miles north of South Bend. I've been restoring "N" model Ford tractors for a while, but when it cane time to get a truck it pretty much had to be a Studie. Found this one on Craigs list, talked to the guy four (!!!) times, he wanted $3500 but offered it to me for $2500 for "one day only" so I went and got my trailer after driving it. 3E6 W/4E 245 plus overdrive. Ordered new side windows while I've been working on gauges and wiring plus getting everything else operational. Brakes with a front disc kit are next on the list. Going to be a company daily driver, so no fancy bodywork, probably shoot it with clear or dark grey primer/clear, not sure yet. The wheels/tires were something I had "in stock" but I'll go for some 215-85/16's when she's road ready.

Pics?~

The first of many, but did any of our members used to restore Studie cars and trucks in a building on Red Bud Trail South behind an old farmhouse back in the 70's? My dad used to lease out a backbuilding to a bunch of guys while I was in high school.

The Trade?

This tailgate came with my truck, but it's 49" wide and I need a 51.5. I think it fits the earlier 50 models.PM me if you've got any ideas. I've already got manuals, joined SDCF, here, and Farmers so I'll be around for a bit.
