I know Studebaker built the Pratt & Whitney R1820 Cyclone engine under license during WWII.

Question...

What other engines did Studebaker build under license? And when?

We did hear about the documented production of AMC Engine Blocks in the Studebaker Foundry.

The GE J-47 jet engine. That would have been late 1940's and early 1950's for the B-47 production run...maybe other applications as well.

The first thing that came to my mind as far as Aviation engines was jets in the Chippewa plant in the '50s.
I know too during the Korean war Studebaker was using REO engines in the M35 truck line, but I think that those were probably crate engines from Reo; not exactly sure.

I thought I read somewhere Studebaker built some Pratt & Whitney Wasp series engines for the late series B17s?
