    New Process 5 Speed shifter plaque

    I am in need of a shifter dash plaque for the dash of the T Cab with a 5 speed. If anyone has one, please let me know. Or if you could post a picture, I'll just copy it till one comes available. Thanks

    Not the clearest. Instead of a "5" that position says "OD"

    Don't limit yourself to just Studebaker trucks. Also check out Dodge, and maybe International trucks of that vintage, as they may have used the same shift pattern diagram in their trucks.

    Dick, please tell me you photo shopped that.
    I would guess the transmission shops where ever that was sold, did a big business on replacing damaged gears.

    Sal, tried to send you a PM but your inbox is full so it wouldn't go thru. I think I have one from a '63 T-cab. but it's for the OD tranny so I "think" the 5th position says "OD" on it. Is this what you are looking for?

    I'm pretty sure it's a joke (hence the ). The shift to 4th through 2nd would be a doozy

    Russ, not only does it have the "Worlds Worse Shift Pattern" IMHO it's one of the "World's Worse Trannsmissions" -----loud straight cut gears which require double clutching on almost all shifts.

    Hey Sal,
    Seeing as you are trying to keep it all Studebaker, I thought I'd send a pic or two of the data plate in my US6.DSC_0381[1].jpgDSC_0382[1].jpg

    When it comes to that one- all we have here is a transmission or two- no plaque. Sorry.

    Pretty sure it just says "5" without the OD letters. I have one buried somewhere in my stash, but haven't seen it for years.

    Chip, Things have changed. A few years back the town got out of the police business and now pays the Broward County Sheriff's department for that service.

    My mom lived in the Bel Air section of Pompano Beach many years ago so I went through L bt S often. Good to know it's changed.

    HTH,
    What model of 5-speed direct was your transmission?

    Mine is a Clark 269V; also a 5-speed direct, but a much different shift pattern from yours:

    Thanks!

    Interesting to know, as I thought NP only supplied 5-speeds with OD.

    Take a look through the parts book Craig, you'll also find a "short fourth" version (same pattern but different order when using the 2 spd rear end). Section 7 group 700C.

    Right!

    I now see both DD and OD mixed together in the 5-speed New Process section. Of course, I only paid attention to the next section, the Clark 5-speed as that's what mine has.
