I've been looking for months for the insulator for the automatic shift rod where it goes through the steering column bracket(62-3-4 all)
part # 1551556 tried all the big boys with no luck.Finally found a supplier at "JOLIET OLD CAR STORE" studebaker@mac.com
They are $10. + $1. shipping.
The other end(trans) & spring washers are available.I'm hoping this will end the sloppy feel to my shift mechanism.Thought I would pass this on for your info.

Thanks kmul221. I have needed one for my 63 HawkGT. Have you installed it ?
How much trouble to back out the shaft in order to install ?
