Greetings, All,

Am setting up to rebuild five T-85s and a T-10. Can you recommend a current best source for a wholesale buy on bearings, synchros, governors and soleniods?

Also, if anyone has any extra R11 overdrive cores, I can use one. On one unit I tore down, there hadn't been any lube there for a looong time.

thnx, jv.

Jack, If you come down I can turn you on to a guy down here in L.A. that has a business up on Washington Blvd. that all he does is tear standard trannys apart and save the pieces. He would be one of the best since his prices would warm the cockels of a CFS owners heart.

Call Studebakers Northwest- they had what we needed for my T-86 rebuild seminar, and great folks besides!

Hi, Bob,

Yes, they are great guys and I'll talk with them about pricing. When I need to buy six of everything, I am hoping to get a little further back up the supply chain.

thnx, jv.

With an order that size, I'm betting they'll cut you a good volume discount.

Jack, you may want to try contacting Jerry Bisel (owner & the only employee) of Southside Auto Parts (phone: 765.284.5456). He does next to no advertising. I wouldn’t have even known about this place had it not been for word-of-mouth. If Jerry doesn’t have a part for a T-85 or T-10 ...the part doesn’t exist ...PERIOD!!! Take a look at his address (below) and you’ll understand how he has what he has.:D
