    All Studebaker cranks are forged, so it's a forging number, but that does not correspond to any of the forging numbers I have in my files.

    Did you get that number directly off a crankshaft or from some other source?

    Here you go, Matt asked exactly the SAME question and this is as close as I could get to it.
    Somehow I remembered that "Forging" Number and searched it!

    Interesting... it was a SIX!

    Looks like Matt never saw my answer.

    He sent me more photos this morning and it is indeed a six cylinder crankshaft.
    Thanks

    I'm still may be looking for a 289 crankshaft for my project if the crankshaft i have is not serviceable.
    I'm looking for a 1539111 crankshaft according to my newly accuired cassis parts manual.... yes, i FINALLY got a manual. LOL

    NOS are getting harder to find. There are a few that pop up that are still STD size. Hang tight its almost car show season.
