Hi, we need some parts for our '63 R1 4 speed.
Part No 536298 release shaft and levers. (actuating shaft through bell housing)
part No 1540810 front flange. (Tube over input shaft for thrust bearing to slide on)
Anybody have some spares?
Thanks in advance,
Dave...

I have been told that this may be the wrong release shaft part number for our Avanti as there was a change during this model. I think ours is a late year production.

The real story is the 536298 shaft and levers fits before Eng. #R-1023 & RS-1040
After those Eng. #'s get the 1560028.

Rich, evidently this part no. 1560028 you gave me is for the throw out bearing, not the shaft. I now have an extra bearing that I don't need and no shaft.

I am very sorry. 1550523 is the correct shaft and levers for after Eng. #R-1023 & RS-1040.
But the 1560028 Release Brg. is called out for those same Serial Numbers to be used with that shaft & levers, because I followed that note I got the wrong part.

I don't understand, is no one at your supplier or otherwise checking the Catalog for the correct Part Name or application, I thought I was directing you to your Chassis Parts Catalog, but if you have none I guess not.

Is that Brg. in the Studebaker box with the correct Part Number or a replacement?
