    Welcome to the forum.

    The "official" Studebaker parts vendors will sell you the correct parts
    , unlike Rock Auto and other similar places.

    The forum moderator will probably move this post to the correct place, parts wanted and found.

    You might also want to search old posts for how to place the key correctly and lubricate the outer axle bearings and such.

    The Studebaker shop manual is helpful and the parts catalogs are especially helpful; showing where each part goes and identifying the part number.

    It looks like you car is a V8 and that information is also required when buying brake parts.

      Also, be aware that Studebakers originally built with front disc brakes had a different type of rear drum brake setup, so make sure the vendor is aware of what style brakes you have. I see by looking at the picture you posted that you have the style of rear brakes used with front discs.

        Glad you caught that. They looked unusual to me, but I have never worked on a Studebaker with disc brakes.

            '65 Shop Manual is a supplement to the '59-'64 manual, and $20. Item # 802073 from Studebaker vendors.
