"Propellor shaft cushions"? Only thing I've ever heard called a 'propellor shaft' in a car is the drive shaft (With the possible exception of an Amphicar;)). Could these be somehow for the center mount for the 2-piece driver shafts??

That's what they look like to me! Center drive shaft support bushings

I've got the two-piece driveshaft and center support to go with these. Came out of a '53 Commander C with automatic. Can deliver to York if needed.

Yup, that's what they are! BTW, they are the same through 1957. One other thing, they are only $9/pair from SI.

Interesting terminology... My truck being a lwb has a driveshaft support bearing also. The Parts book calls the large rubber cup the bearing sits in the "cushion" and the rubber pieces that go on the mounting studs are also called "cushions"... so there is a lot of "cushioning" happening around that support bearing! ;):D

That's a neat NORS Doan package! It's hard to believe that in the day, aftermarket Mfg's like Doan, Moog etc. many good 'ol American Co's. would actually make some of these more model specific and not very often replaced parts for lowly Studebaker AND they made parts for Hudson, Packard, Nash, Kaiser, Frazer, Willys, and International along with the big three! [:0]

You can tell that these were packaged and most likely made no later than 1952 because the applications were so small in those days they would actually print it on the package! No stinkin parts book or computer required! [^]

These even show the Studebaker Part Number they replace, and would show fitting up to 1957, if they were made later. [^]
