Does anyone have a source for the rear axle outer grease seals for a 2R5? Lacking that I would settle for a crossover # to another seal that would work.

Thanks,

Gerry

Hi Gerry,

I haven't replaced my outer seals, but I got the inner seals from Stephen Allen's www.mystudebaker.com when I had the ring and pinion gears replaced.

Have you tried SASCO - www.studeparts.com (best if you know the part number)
or Chuck Collins - www.studebakerparts.com (search his site by name or part number)
or Studebaker Int'l - www.studebaker-intl.com (call them, there is not much in the way of product listings on the web site)

The Stude International catalog shows part 197591, felt seal, as a replacement for the older part number 191023, a cork washer. At $2.50 each, the price is right, used on 2R-8E trucks.

Thanks guys!

I tried all the Stude vendors' websites. The inner seals were easy but I had no success for the outers. I sure look forward to the day when we can find useful information on SI's website. I imagine they loose a lot of sales because their limited site leads people to believe they don't have needed parts.

Once you buy enough stuff from Ed, he'll send you a 237 page catalog for free. Or you can order the catalog for $3

I understand about the catalog but the fact remains that I always go to my computor first to search for things. What's more, I suspect that there might be a few others like me out there somewhere. Printing and sending catalogs has to be expensive and changes can't be made until the next issue. Once he bites the bullet and gets the website set up I would guess that the savings begin and the orders start to multiply.

That said, it's his business and he should run it the he wants to.

Stude International seems to be putting the catalog on line. There is no direct link from their web site, but if you Google Studebaker and a part number, you'll get a link to a PDF of the full catalog. I didn't find the index yet, but here are the sections:
http://www.studebaker-intl.com/Resources/Part%201.pdf (TOC, pages 1-22)
http://www.studebaker-intl.com/Resources/Part%202.pdf (pages 23-37)

That's good stuff [:p] !

SASCO's website is very easy, if you know your part number:)...only if you know your part number:(; which is no problem once you have your chassis and body catalogs;).

Thanks Gary for the really great news. Even a PDF beats a paper catalog.

Actually, Brad, the SASCO site does have the catalog on line.

Go to the www.studeparts.com site, click to go to the Parts Catalog, then click on the pull-down menu at the very top center. Hidden in there are the links to the various catalog sections. It even has pictures, part numbers, and prices. It takes a little work to navigate, but the stuff is mostly there, including crossovers to new part numbers.

The PDF files on the Stude International site are searchable using the Acrobat Reader search function (binoculars icon), so you can plug in words or part numbers to search on. All of the material is there as separate text and graphics, as opposed to images of the printed catalog pages. Very web friendly, high quality stuff!

I made a small edit on my post above, as I had left out the link to Part 11. I also found the index of parts numbers by page! The first page of Part 1 shows the table of contents with approximately which Part of the catalog to look in. I still can't find the link to these PDF pages from the main site. Sorry, Ed, if I spilled the beans before you were ready, but the PDFs just kept popping up as I googled Stude part numbers.

I kinda get a kick outta some folks cryin' that there's no "comprehensive" catalogs to be had for free from every vendor. The bigger Stude vendors aren't like the one's that serve the 57 Chevy and T-Bird crowd. It's relatively easy to do a catalog when everything in your limited inventory is stuff that's been reproduced!
Stude did us a favor by not just dumping it's parts inventories into a landfill in '66. BUT, it was/is a bit of a task to catalog and store all what was left behind for those that took over such inventories.
And then you get guys who think that there should be catalogs of all this stuff with dumbed down descriptions so that they can find what they want by being able to tell what year their Stude is![xx(]
Your Stude is a complex machine. Knowing you want the thingy that keeps the motor from leaking oil is not good enough. That's why Studebaker went to all that trouble to develop and print parts books. Can you imagine a parts department sending a request in for one of those chrome doo-dads that's on the glove box door? Oh yeah - it's on a 1953 model.[:o)]
Paper catalogs are expensive. I'd rather have cheap parts than a "Stude parts for dummies" book. Web sites and folks to do a comprehensive job of them cost money too. Heh - the Stude parts biz is HARDLY a get-rich-quick scheme. I don't know of ANY of our better (or worse) vendors that I'd characterize as "Well-to-do"[:0]

BTW - not pickin' on you, Gerry. You know better than that anyway.;)

Sure I know you're not picking on me Bob. After all, I use the parts book (on CD of course) religiously. The part number and description usually makes searching for parts a cakewalk. In this case I had searched the part number at all the vendors' web sites, including SI's, to no avail.

My comments were fostered by the thought that SI loses a sale when they have a part but catalog illiterate folks like me can't find it. Better for Ed, and us too, if we can do business. I'm really glad he seems to be bringing his operation into a position that serves everyone.

Food For Thought..... Even in this "new-age-technology" there are STILL some people who do not have nor know how to use a computer.. After all there are a lot of "veteran" members that were here when this club was formed. A lot of them prefer the paper catalogs. It's mighty hard to take the computer and all of it's attachments to the "library" (sic)

A laptop w/wireless networking could serve that purpose nicely:D
