My Father's Rant

by Brian Marshall



Hello Forum Members

I just wanted to say that my Father sufffers from Dymentia as well as cancer and Degenerative Foot Disease.

I would like to take this time to say that his comments are somewhat out the ordinary but Ted did threaten him that he would contact his Lawyer.

This has been going on for over a year now. My Father has been out of work since June of 2010 when he had his eye removed due to cancer. Cancer has returned and the outlook does not look Good.

He was to go to Cuba this week for Charity work but he is too weak to go. I just wish that Ted would have done the right thing and looked at the photo;'s my father sent.......he has no use for this Fuel pump and he is out $100.

I would like to just say Sorry in some ways what my dad said.

All the best to all the Studebaker Forum Members.

Whats wrong with it?

by Steve Dotson

Brian, I am sorry for your fathers condition and your own position. I lost my own father when he was just 54 years old and dealt with the anger phase of his cancer. As for the pump, it was asked here at the least (and by Ted) what was wrong with the pump he sent that made it unusable. I never saw a reply to that question, just more rants. I see no reason why the correct pump for a truck will not work for you. If it is just a matter of inlet/outlet location that is an easily correctable issue that many here have been through and are willing to offer direction. Pumps like the one currently on the truck are available, but they bolt up and work exactly the same. They just look different and dont clear the truck engine mounts as evidenced by the modifications to yours. If you will tell us WHY the pump you received from Ted does not work we will get you through this. As for Ted threatening to call a lawyer I personally think he has shown considerable restraint and use of the legal system is his most reasonable recourse. In his shoes I would not be nearly so polite long before this point. You and your dad both need to get off him or nobody here is going to give a care if your dad lives or dies with or without a Studebaker. Personally I intended to check a junk engine I have and send your dad a pump but as he kept digging himself in with his own commentary and refusing to cooperate with those here trying to help him I lost any interest in trying to help the man as I am sure others have. Respond to the questions and drop the personal assaults and I will see what I can do to help you. Steve

Re: My Father's Rant

by Ted

I will respond one more time, Brian. This time it will be public
I have offered to take back the pump I sent. I have offered to receive the pump that is on the truck, so it could be matched properly. I have offered to rebend the proper fuel delivery lines if the pump could not be matched to the one on your truck. I have offered to pay the postage both ways, and make the exchange at no charge. It has been over a year and I heard nothng about the pump being wrong until a few weeks ago. If a message was sent I did not get it.
I have even given directions to repair the pump that is on your truck based on the description of the problem given to me. making diagnostics long distance is not very easy at best.
I did say that if my name was continued to be debased I would call my attorney friend in Toronto. I have chosen not to do so based on two things.
First your fathers condition. Medicine such as is likely your father is taking can make a person do thngs they would not do under normal circumstances.
Second It has always been my code to be fair and honest with those who share this hobby with me. because that is the way I like to be treated. When we treat people that way they will stand with you and my friends have done just that.
I know what pain and loss is I just buried one of my grand sons at 19 years of age yesterday because of an accident cause by an unwise and careless driver, I will not go after him because we all make mistakes.

Brian you have read the offers I have made your father. I make the same offers to you. I want you to have the correct pump and want you to drive your truck with no trouble and have fun doing it. If you should choose the offers please write me at studepickups@optonline.net I will send my address if you do not have it.

I will not write more about this and apologize to my Studebaker friends for having to read and endure all of this.Ted

We broke down as we started to pull out of Rest Area

by peter

http://www.network54.com/Forum/23885/

loud popping noise like Muffler/Manifold but when tow truck driver got to the site we told him the noise and he said no U blew your plug and Heli Coil, there are 3 of them that don't have enough threads and #1 went blew the plug to the top of the engine and the Heli coil out of the hole, the two driver found it right away as he said we see this all the time on the First edition Ford V10's with the Aluminium Manifold etc. So he hooks us up to his truck as were sort of blocking the free way access from the Rest Stop, kept the U-Haul with car on board right along with us. We met the right Tow truck driver that day and he got us to the RIGHT mechanic who took us in on short notice the next day, the others we tried all said 2 days to 3 weeks. Ford was the longest and the fellow we went to said and it would of cost you the motel/hotel bill, food, plus repairs about $6000 because they would no just fix it they would replace the whole head.
The Fellow we got to is called Jim's Diesel Service, he had all the right tools and knew what he was doing, says he works on Diesel mainly but Gas if needed to.
We broke down Thursday around 2PM and left Jim's at Noon Friday, cost for labor and parts about $445.00 tow of the Trailer and car another $100 but paid for by the owner who we were helping out. Because we belong to Good Sam which has been a blessing in Disguise as they have helped us over the years. I'm sorry guys but I did not get the Tow truck drivers Name or phone number but they haul a lot of big trucks and he was also Excellent. Note Judy and her sister enjoying the break down for a bit of relaxation.

Re: Yep this is a well known issue with these

by Keith

Keith they supposedly fixed the problem around 2001 but what gets me the had the same problem with the V8's and the V10's in the Class C's then in 1999 started putting them in the Class A's There are 3 cyl that are the culprits but once sleeved then no more problems or so I'm told.
the installed the Class C's in 1997 so already had 2 years of this crap going on why did they not fix it then.
The mechanic told us that the 6.4L Diesel in the Pickups was even worst not the motor itself but if you had to get the cooling system out to replace and there is one in the rear and one in the front, U have to lift the Cab off the Frame and it is a real pricey fix.

Yes this a first experience for us and the Heli-coil spark plug

by Peter

but that is how they do it now on the V8's and the V10's and I would rather have the mpg from a V10 than the 8.1L or 454V8 that Chevrolet has on the market, matter of fact U would think they would something better for all Motor Homes as there are a lot on the road these days or people live in them 5-6 months of the year in the nice warmer areas.
John wait until your back in Oregon and don't see the sunshine but see more rain everyday in the winter months from Sept to end of June and if your lucky then not later.
When they fixed it this time for the one cyl. they installed a Insert with more threads so I will never have a problem with that cyl again.
Before hitting the road I will pick up another set of parts as I can get for cheap at home though the parts and labor were not all that bad.
If Ford had of done the repairs they said 2-3 weeks, I could not live in MH on there property and the cost for lodging, Food, and repairs including parts would of been around $6000.
So I'm very happy with the service we got from the people of Lincoln, NE.

Yes John this was a 10,000 mile trip that we did.

by Peter

broke down in Lincoln,NE but basically it was great to get out and about and see some more of the US and it's natural wonders.
I told a fellow Studebaker Person who belonged to the Whatcom County Chapter and was moving from Whidy Is. to Greenville Illinois, he and I had already taken one truck and personal goods out around 2010 then he did another on his own either 2011/12 #2 truck went this trip he had a truck on his trailer and his other GT Hawk on the other U-Haul so now all the vehicles are out there along with all of his personal goods from his home in Oak Harbor, WA. All in All it was a good trip weather was good most of the way except for the threat of fresh snow in Wyoming and a real mean rain storm on I10 in Texas where we could not see more than 150' in front of us and we pulled over for 1/2 hour or until we could see a mile down the track.
We got around 85-90*F weather the whole trip which is way better than the rain the got at home and the cooler weather of around 55*F in May/June.

Travelling through Wyoming

Spent the night at 7200' slightly cold but good warm comforters, there were reports of major snowfall while we were in Idaho but we decided to push on just the same and by the time we hit the snow areas the highway was clear. At 8600' winter was still showing some teeth but was slowly declining though I think they could even get snow up here in the summer months.
Real Pretty Country, we dropped down to the last Rest Stop in Cheyenne, WY. Good dump station here and good drinking water. Did our work here then headed for Nebraska & Problems.

Hi-Tork Brakes...

by Frank McM.

Found a big Baker this weekend, and am considering whether or not the chase it.


It is a 2R-16, on 20" Rubber, which according to the books, has the everlovin' Hi-Tork brakes.


When in top nick, how well do these work, and how much grief am I looking at to get them working ?


If I get the truck, it is with the intention of making it a working vehicle...


Right now, I see these funky brakes as the Achille's Heel...



Comments / recommendations from those who know about them first-hand ?


Thanks !

Re: Hi-Tork Brakes...

by Steve Dotson

I have only driven mine around the yard since I did the rear brakes(not built the fronts yet) but they seem to work well and no real issues if they are buildable. If not they must be sleeved (around $300 ea IIRC). I didnt have any problems finding the bits to assemble a kit locally, even found the metal (aluminum?) pistons. The castings are said to be easily cracked and one of mine indeed was. In that case you are searching. I even tried to find a junk truck to try again before I found the cylinder for mine. Check the part numbers I posted in the earlier thread and see if those are what you need. They should fit a 16 or a 17. Steve

Re: Hi-Tork Brakes...

by Mason

To dissasemble the rears drill a hole that can be tapped for a pipe thread plug . Drive out the 1 3/16 piston, then you have easy acces to the 5/8 dia piston. This works like a charm. And the brakes are VERY effective.

Out with the pistons

by Roger List

I'd be afraid of damaging the pistons by driving them out, also even with the 1 3/8" piston out you still have very limited access to drive out the 11/16" piston. If it's not too stuck, the small piston has a small hole in one side of the outside of the piston. Take the boot off and look carefully at the piston, it is a real tiny hole and it may be filled with gunk. Take a small very stiff wire and bend a hook on the end and stick it in the hole and pull the piston out. There is no spring behind the small piston. If your lucky, it might come out. What I did was take a bolt that will fit in the brake inlet hole and drill it all the way through. My nephew then welded a fitting on the head that would take an ordinary zerk fitting. Screw it into the cylinder and pump the pistons out with a grease gun. Once the large piston comes out flush with the cylinder, hold it in a vise so that it can't come all the way out and the small piston will come right out. Works great and you don't run the risk of destroying a piston that will be very hard to replace. Cleaning up the grease is a bear, but I think that is still the better option.

Secret Weapon: Grease Gun

by Frank McM.

Thanks for this tip, Roger.


I have heard about the Hit & Miss Engine guys using the same technique to remove a stuck piston from an old one-lunger with a blind cylinder jug...

fill the grease gun with water

by jack vines

That's what we do when pressure-testing compressor tanks. Fill the tank to the top with water, then fill a grease gun with water and pump til the pressure gauge reads the test pressure you want.

Since water is incompressible, it produces the same pressure as does grease.

Using Water

by Roger List

Hadn't thought of that. My only concern is that water would leak out around the piston in the grease gun, but then if you used an empty grease cartridge in the gun it would make a better seal against the piston. A good idea, worth a shot.

Interesting idea. Not sure how I like it in general, particularly the upper back pillar. That inverted triangular window seems like it might be better if it was just filled solid. It would be easier to visualize the finished product if it was all one color.

Re: Near Death

by Matthew Burnette

I'm not active here anymore and have been hesitant to say a word. But Ted is someone I consider a friend and enough is enough.

First let me say to Ted.. Sorry to see this guy trashing your name. I think the members here all know you well enough to see past it either way. And my sincere condolences about your grandson. I believe I met him (and the first time I met you) at the International meet in Iowa a few years ago. A couple of nicer guys you'd never meet.


Now.. To this Jeff guy.. Didn't you just post 3 days ago that you were off to Cuba?

You've said you were "done" with this forum about half a dozen times so far.

Ted is a hell of a guy. You won't change the groups' opinion of him. I've done business with him and he treated me much better than I ever expected. I've watched him at various Stude meets give his advice and help to total strangers. Stop trashing his name.

I think if I were living my last days, the last thing I would do would be talking garbage and stirring up drama on a Studebaker Truck forum. This forum isn't moderated. And in the 10 years I've been a member here, this is the first time I've EVER seen crap like this get posted. The group here does a wonderful job of keeping it clean and focused on trucks.

I don't post at all anymore, in fact I've all but gotten out of the Stude hobby, but I do still read this forum from time to time as it's about the only "good" Studebaker forum left.

Just go away. You've made your point. Take care!

Really hard to believe this amount of anger and drama is all over a rule pump. In fact, it is a little too hard to believe.

I agree, it these were my last days on Earth, I think that last thing I'd be getting upset about is some ridiculously easy to solve fuel pump problem. If you can't handle fixing a fuel pump, you just really shouldn't be in the old truck hobby to begin with.

Re: Near Death

by R-Bucket

You have GOT to be kidding me.

I think Jeff has made my point for me. I mentioned before about people tooting their own horn. That's all this Ted is about, Poor me, I do this I do that.

I don't know him, nor do I want to know him after this. its gone from "I go to Cuba to help kids, I give locl families cash I have all these charities"

Im sorry you have cancer it does suck, but ted doesn't rip people off. I don't think any one here does!

Some like me want a million dollars for their parts but then again I take 5. we can all want, but as for rip offs? I think not. ted has allowed me to pay on time for parts, he has helped me with many questions. He even remembered I needed glass for my dash on my truck several months after I mentioned it. Knew I didn't have the cash to buy it when he found it at a meet and still got it, mailed it to me on his dime until I could pay him back.

Forget it, we all know better, you cant hurt Teds reputation.

However perhaps in your final days you should remember their are rules in life and on forums. As well as Laws that say something about having a hell of a lot of proof before you go speaking out in any way that attempts to harm another persons reputation.

You got screwed and kicked in the teeth with cancer, sorry, but we didn't do it, ted didn't do it so go away and stay away like you have said you would.

The Nice thing you should know. there is not one person HERE that will hold what you are doing here against your son. So in the future if he needs help he should know we are here and wont hold the sins of the father against him

It is sad that

by John Weinrich

anyone that owns a Studebaker would act this way. Now I don't have knowledge of this entire situation and I suspect that many here on STT do not either but it is entirely possible that this is Jeff's way of handling his end of life. Mind you I don't condone any of the negative remarks he has made toward Ted. But I do understand that people react in different ways when faced with such a tremendous emotional event. I just hope that when I pass that the event will be pleasant to everybody...

I have known Ted for several years and would have a hard time believing what Jeff has stated. Ted is an honorable man that I do not hesitate to call my friend. He has been a positive influence to me personally, on STT, and to the Studebaker truck community. He cares deeply about his family, his community, and our great country.

My guess is that Jeff with his emotional roller coaster situation along with poor communications (text,email...) has misinterpreted the situation. I do have a hard time wrapping my head around something as small as a fuel pump to be such a catalyst to so much vile. The goal for Jeff to have his truck in tip top shape for his son is honorable but not very practical as his son will have to deal with many maintenance issues with the truck in the future if he keeps the truck. Owning and operating a Studebaker truck or any vintage vehicle is an ongoing effort that will always challenge. This is why the STT community is so valuable.

Jeff, I hope you find peace before you pass. Peace with yourself, your loved ones, and yes with Ted and all of us on STT.

What have I found ? Big R-truck

by Frank McM.

I stumbled across a first-generation R-series big Stude today...

Here's the data off the builder's plate:


R 16 A 15***

2R 16 A 55

14,000 GVW


On 20" rubber ( five-lug "Budd" wheels, the dreaded split-in-the-channel "widow-makers" ), four-speed ( no lock-out lever/rod: Reverse is all the way to the right and forward), Single-speed "split-rear". This one has an 8ft dump body, PTO/hydraulic hoist.


Any idea what year I'm looking at, and are brake cylinders / parts for it made from un-obtanium ?

Thanks !

What you have found...

by Frank Drumheller

is a Studebaker 1 1/2 ton truck in the "R" series. The truck is rated at 14,000 lbs. gross vehicle weight. More on this point at the end.

Allow me to decode the model code-

2R16A-55
2....code for Studebaker production of a series of trucks for model years 1949-1953,
R....code for the trucks built for model years 1949-1954 (1954 models were 3R series),
16...indicates a truck chassis nominally rated as a 1 1/2 ton vehicle,
A....the original Studebaker 1 1/2 ton truck introduced in 1949 (2R16) was equipped with a 226 cubic inch, six cylinder, side valve, flat head engine rated at 94 horsepower. Before the end of the 1949 model run, a 245 cubic inch engine producing 100 horsepower was phased into production, replacing the smaller displacement engine. The "A" designation was added to the model code for all 2R16 trucks thereafter. 2R16 truck production began with serial number R16-001 and ended with R16-12682. 2R16A production began with model R16A-13201, all in 1949. After serial number R16A-24400 through R16A-43700 were built near the end of 1949 production though the 1953 model year. Your truck was built with the larger engine.
55...indicates the wheelbase of the chassis measured from the center of the front axle to the center of the rear axle in inches, in this case 155 inches. Other lengths of chassis available in the 2R series were 112, 121, 112, 131, 171, and 195 inches.

I can not identify (ID) this specific truck without knowing the serial number. Your should find the serial number stamped on the tag on the wall of the driver's foot-well. If you could post that number, I can tell you the year model. It should look as
R16A-xxxxx.

The truck was built with a standard four-speed manual, non-synchronized (crash box), a 'split-rear' is street talk for a vacuum two-speed rear axle, a common option on larger trucks at extra cost. I imagine most dump trucks came equipped with 2-speed rear axles. The wheels you describe were standard issue on a truck for dump truck service. The dump body and PTO/hydraulic hoist was after-market components (not factory installed).

I can't answer your question on brakes, but many people on this forum have decent brakes on their trucks. Hopefully, someone will give you proper advice on this matter. If you have other questions, just ask. These is a lot of expertise on this blog.

Send me the serial number so we can pin down the model year. Frank

I'm sorry, I meant to...

by Frank Drumheller

add a comment about the GVW of 14,000 lb. capacity of the truck. The factory assigned the Gross Vehicle Weight of all truck chassis. This figure is what the factory uses as a 'safe' weight for warranty purposes. The 14,000 lbs. limit on this truck means if the owner overloaded the truck beyond 14,000 lbs. the warranty was void. The truck could actually carry more weight. The 14,000 lb. limit included the truck from the factory, plus the weight of all accessories, the driver, fuel and water, and the body and associated equipment.

A 2R16A from the factory weighed approximately 4080 lbs. By the time the owner added the body, fuel tanks, PTO equipment, fluids, and a driver, the weight would approach 8000 lbs. This means the truck could carry 3 tons without voiding the warranty. The truck probably was capable of carrying 4 tons. And they did after the warranty ran out. This is just my shot in the dark on GVW. Please don't quote me!!! Frank

M15 Frame

by John Weinrich

I'm adding a PTO winch to MPH and have to mount two pillow block bearings to the frame on the passenger side. My plan is to fabricate brackets that bolt to the frame and the pillow block bearings will bolt to the brackets. To bolt the brackets to the frame I will need to drill mounting holes in the frame, one in the vertical section and one in the bottom lip. The rear bracket near the rear of the transmission will be able to use an existing hole in the vertical section so I will be drilling only one hole in the bottom lip. The front bracket is located just forward of the frame cross member supporting the bell housing.

Will there be a issue compromising the structural integrity of the frame?

My wife suggested that I weld a plate where the holes are doubling the thickness of the metal about an inch around the holes.

Is welding a plate a good idea?

I wouldn't do any welding

by Lee W.

I would drill any holes as you see necessary, spacing them as far apart as possible and using the smallest hole you can get by with. If the purpose of these brackets is solely to support the PTO shaft, then they shouldn't have that much stress on them anyway. The purpose of the pillow blocks is to keep the shaft from "whipping" around as it spins. There is a recommended spacing of pillow blocks for solid shafts, but I don't recall what it is off hand. Type in "Chelsea PTO" in your search engine and you may find some design info.

Most truck manufacturers recommend not welding to the frame . They usually suggest clamping , or using bracketry , and if you must drill holes , use as small a hole as possible , just as Lee said ............Bob Cruse.......

If your not sure about welding to the frame

by Keith Mifflin

You could at least take some say 1/4" flat steel stock and drill holes in the same pattern and spacing as on the frame and use on on each side to act as doubler to increase the strength removed by the holes.

They weld on frames all the time in hot rod building boxing them in to add strength while not removing any of he temper from the existing steel frames. It really isn't a big deal you just need to be sure you don't warp it with the heat and brace it well.

The Fenders are for an M15 Big truck...Nice Shape

I was able to speak with Dion about some of the parts he has. It looks like he found someones project in a barn....The fenders are in nice shape, 2 are ready for body work and paint small amount of surface rust but someone was getting them ready for a nice truck, they have the larger wheel openings and the spacer to add the extra width. The other two are still painted small amount of rust but very workable I have bought much worse to try and get them half as good as these are. Any of you guys out there that just picked up the M15 1 ton pickups these are the fenders for you!! Give Dion a call I picked up some of the other parts for my truck.

wheel wobble- rear

by Dave M

Well I finally got to my second car show with my truck ('57 Transtar 1/2 ton) last Saturday. Only 10 cars showed up with three Stude trucks there including mine. It was a breakfast show and worth the food. Finally got my wife to come with me. As we were about to get onto the highway (95),a guy in a SUV waved me down and told me I have a rear wheel wobbling. Had to take an alternate route home (35 miles). Now I have to figure out what is going on. I can put the truck on a friend' lift this weekend. How should I proceed?
I checked the wheel lugs and all were tight. I have had the tires and wheels balanced. Got the wheels from Ted so I know they are the right ones for my truck. New bearings and all the brake stuff replaced. I have a Dana 44 TT rear end in it. Bent axle? I have a friend that has a Champ truck and extra axles and rear ends (not TT). Will a 60's champ axle work on my rear end?
What to do?
Thanks in advance for all help offered.

A couple things......

by David Orth




I'd first get to a tire shop and have 'em check the wheel for out of round and out of square, (I guess that's what you'd call it). The wheel could be bent and still look like it's good. Doesn't take much to see a wobble if you're the guy following behind. Next I'd check the brake drum for the same issues, Last I'd check the axle. Any good repair shop can quickly yank the axle and check if it's straight. If those are all good, I'd start wondering about the guy in the SUV.

All good advice. Did the people who balanced the tires say anything about a bent rim? Did you sandblast the rims before painting? I have seen rims bent because of warpage after sandblasting. Check them all. Are they 15 or 16 inch rims? I have a couple of 16s left if you need a replacement.

no sandblasting

by Dave M

I cleaned up the wheels with a wire brush on my drill and stripper. Painted them myself. Had them mounted and balanced by Goodyear shop. They are 15 in. I got from you a while back if you remember they got stuck in the mail for awhile and I had to hunt them down. Sunday I will be able to put the truck on a lift and check everything and take apart if necessary. As I said I have been offered a axle shaft from the champ line of trucks without TT. I have TT on my c-cab. Will the shaft work on mine?
Also my tires are a bit old but were in good condition when I switched them off of the wheels that came with the truck when I bought it. I will check the tire for bulges and such when I get it off.

Re: axle removal

by 2R5

I wouldn├Ęt remove your axle to have it checked, just check it while its in the rearend.
Pull your brake drum and justset up a dial indicator so you can measure any differnces. If they get bent its usually between the backing plate and the end and that will show up on the indicator.
I had one on my 52 truck that was bent .006 in and it had a very visible wobble .

Often times when a vehicle has run thru mud, wet, etc. It may APPEAR as though there is a wobble on a wheel as the tire has stuff on it, reflects light differently and does not have uniform color when turning, looking at it from behind. If everything's tight and you didn't feel it........ But check to make sure of course.

Bent wheels can be straightened

by jack vines

We've got a local shop, Watt's Wheel and Driveline, which has been straightening bent steel and aluminum wheels for fifty years.

Since you've already paid for the wheel, shipping and painting, straightening might be less expensive than starting over.

Straightening

by r1lark

Yep, Jack's right on the money. We have an old time shop in Winston-Salem that straightens wheels, last ones I took about a year ago were $20 each IIRC.

I have a Champ truck wheel that got bent up pretty bad, apparently from a power tire changer (or at least that's what I was told when I bought the truck.....). I haven't taken it to be straightened since I think it's a lost cause -- the lug area is bent.

Dave: since you have a 57 C-cab the axle complete will fit the champ. You can even take the TT from one and install it in the other. All of this is of course only possible if both are 1/2 ton trucks with Dana 44 differentials.

Re: Six Cylinder Engine Perfomance

by Bob W

We ran a turbo-charged Champion six at Bonneville in a '53 coupe for 3 years and set numerous records from 2004-2006 although you'd never know it from reading Turning Wheels.

http://salt2salt.com

The engine is currently in a 3-wheeler, still turbo-charged, and running on propane.

http://tribaker.wordpress.com/

Also, Dave Molnar recently installed a Champion 6 in his M5. It's running "Mit Kompressor" as the Germans say (a Mercedes supercharger). Dave built the plenum for our Champion and does custom intake and exhaust manifolds for Champion 6's.

Champ 6 engine hop-ups

by Gary Ash

Bill Cathcart was the guru of Champ 6 engine mods. He's retired at this point. Bill told me that he put a supercharger on his Champ 6 in his 1960 Lark, got about 140 hp - before it blew up. Many of Bill's mods included a high-lift cam, big valves, over bore, dual carbs, high compression head, special ignition, dual exhaust. I think this gets you from the base 80 hp to about 120 hp. It's a lot better than stock, but not in the class of hot performance. Digger Dave Molnar's M5 with the swoopy intake manifold and side-draft Jaguar carburetor made a lot of hp. I'm sure his later update to the turbocharger was even better. Any flathead will respond to a few pounds of supercharger/turbo boost, just don't go overboard.

Re: Champ 6 engine hop-ups

A number of years ago I purchased some hi-performance equipment from Bill Cathcart and you are right it is too bad he is retired however I think that Phil Harris may be interested in building some six cylinder speed equipment.
I would disagree that building up a six is not worth the effort. About 5 lbs of boost is about right.

What are your end goals ?

by Frank McM.

You say "you would like a little more power" out of your M-5...


Do you mean pulling power for hauling ?

More "snap" for red-light get-away ?

More "top-end" for highway driving ?


All of the above ?


One of the limitations is going to be the original gearing of your tranny and rear-end...


I think that turbo-charging does not help much until you get the RPMs up...

You might get some big gains by improved breathing ( porting / relieveing / polishing ), better intake & carb, split exhaust and or headers, high-performance ignition, improved cam. Turbo might not be necessary for a street truck...

In any event, performance mods require sound block & crank, careful machine work, proper balancing... and even a properly modded Studie six might not meet your end goals...


Work it all out on paper before you start spending $$$... wink.gif

Clifford Performance is another proponent of six-cylinder power ...

Good luck - keep us posted !

Turbocharging Studebaker 6 Cylinder Engine

Hello Frank:

To answer some of your questions...the rear axle has been replaced with a ratio of 3/1. ( Ford 9" ), Transmission is up to question. As for the power I'm looking for is just enough to keep up with traffic and pull the hills at freeway speeds.

Cam and breathing

by Frank McM.

Ernie,

Based on what guys have been doing with flathead MoPars and Stove bolt Chevy sixes, the equivalent to a " towing & RV cam", headers, and better carburetion are probably going to do you as much good as turbocharging. Milling the head to increase compression ratio might also be helpful.

But, I could be wrong.

The guys running turbos out on the salt flats are spinning major RPMs, and looking at speeds over 100 mph...


With a 3:1 rear ( pretty tall for a stick ), you might want to consider a Ford 4-speed, with 4th gear being direct drive. 3:1 is way too tall to hook-up to any tranny with an over-driven top gear.


Frank McM.

by John Weinrich

but where not dinged up so I just cleaned them inside using a drill and a brush on a wire starting with WD40 and then finishing with Dawn/water. The cones are there to route the oil/grease mixture out away from the inside of the brake drum and shoes. Some day I plan to find a modern seal for the inside hub so that the cones would not be needed.

Just a heads up for anyone interested - my 6E-40-195 has been listed on kijiji (Ad ID 1006455552). Relocation from Essex County (Windsor, Ontario area) to Grey County forces the sale as I will have no storage for it there. Lots of new parts used in its restoration but could stand a little freshening up. Contact me at deanderson59(at)hotmail dot com if interested.

Currently located between both coasts (actually, close to Detroit) but I'm sure its in the wrong place for someone. Hopefully, it is in the RIGHT place for somebody else.

I have to concur....

by Frank Drumheller

with Vern. I've looked through my 1948-49 Salesman's data book, all of the '49 showroom literature I have and Fred Fox's article on the 1949 2R 1/2 ton trucks and I can find no evidence of rack body. To my knowledge, the only styles available from the factory on the 1/2 ton 1949 chassis were the 6 1/2 foot pickup, a cab and chassis, and a chassis/cowl unit. It would not be impossible for someone to have ordered a flatbed on a cab and chassis unit.

I guess there is a possibility Studebaker could have special built some other configuration (in number) for a customer. But, a heavy wooden stake body on a short, 1/2 ton chassis with a 80 hp six cylinder engine does not seem to be a salable item on a dealer's lot.

Will wonders ever....

by Frank Drumheller

cease! As soon as my mouth drops open, I'm proved wrong! BUT, I have a feeling that flip-over dealers' chart was made early in the production year and, probably at that time, such a vehicle was projected. I could not find a photo nor specs for such a truck in the dealer's DATA BOOK that was used by sales staff.

Anyway, please send me the scan and I'll recheck my materials more carefully to see if I can find a factory stake bodied 1/2 ton offered to the public.

My email addy is f60s-w6@hotmail.com

Thanks, 2R5! Frank

I was surprised that it had such a small shaft driving it. Not sure which Ramsey winch it was but it is very much like mine. The spool looked wider but other then that, looks the same. I guess they didn't know they could reconfigure the clutch lever to be on the outside...

Cool trucks.

by MW

So that is where they keep all those spare road barriers. I always wondered where they all came from and went to when done with them.

Does he just keep them all outside all the time like that? Looks like a lot of effort to move them around to just cut the grass under them on a regular basis if nothing else.

or at least around here, They just got through building 3 bridges up here so U can imagine how many there are. Get this they're gonna build 2 more bridges, I have been trying to get them to build one 4 lane over and under like they have in Portland, much better way of doing it as they have less land to build on.

Great pics !

That black "Capone" truck with the buggy on the back: is that a Sterling or perhaps a Rugby ?

Also, that '58-'59 Chevy "Apache" - this is the first time I have seen a Chevy on cast-spoke wheels ... :O

Like that K-series International... I had a '49 KB-2... wink.gif

Also glad to see 'Mater there... :D
