View Full Version : Rear Axle: Looking for a mechanic

07-02-2017, 12:13 PM
I recently had a rear axle shaft break at the outer end on my 1950 champion. I bought an NOS axle shaft but changing it looks out of league. Does any one know a mechanic who could tackle this. Unfortunately they would have to attempt this in my garage as I partially dissambled. I live in Anaheim CA.

Contact your local Studebaker Driver Club members.

I thought that's what I was doing

Send me a PM with your contact information as I was the one that restored your car in 2011. Replacing the axle isn't a big deal, but the end play does have to be adjusted. Bud

By local, Joe probably means the LA or Orange County SDC clubs. They are both very active in the Stude' community.
Their contact info is listed in Turning Wheels (I do not have a copy w/ me here at the library.
