  • Another 8E45 Diesel

    Hey guy's I mentioned a few weeks ago I had a lead on another Stude Diesel. Well i tracked it down this morning (a beautiful morning it was). Sure nuff it is a 8E45 with a lift on the back, he said it was a dump. Anyway it is rough the cab actually broke off as I was removing the rear glass. I brought the fiberglas diesel grill, the driverside rain guard, the drivers diesel emblem, the rear glass, vin tag, body tag, and NP 5spd. overdrive top plate today. I'm going back this summer to get the rest. They have to wait for the ground to dry up so they can take their 75' boom crane back there to pluck it out for me. I was not expecting this guy to do that, most woud say hell with it get what you can and forgett the rest.

    Not much more than what I got is any good, but the front of the chassis is there the tube style cross member is there, the trans is there but with PTO pump missing and the top plate removed, it's REALLY rusted up inside. The rear end is the same as mine, the front axle and steering box looks good, The fuel tank and supports are nice, the 4 wheel air brake setup is complete but all metal is pitted alittle. The firewall peice is good except when the cab let loose the steering column ripped it alittle, but fixable.

    I will bring it home and salvage as much as possible, then haul the rest off.

      Standard old time junk yard way to pull chassis parts. Once bought a Studebaker transmission from a GT Hawk in a bone yard. flip the car on the side, torch the the drive shaft and linkage, smash the cast iron bell housing with a big sledge, and the transmission is in the dirt in 10 minutes.

        Yeh well they ruined this one just to get the PTO pump off. It's the only thing missing besides the engine and the guy that told me about this truck got that years ago. It was still on all 6 at that time.

          When I first moved to Visalia 20 years ago, there was a pretty decant 8E40 tractor mouldering away in the front yard of a ramshackle country home.
          I went and inquired about getting any of the remains and the guy that owned the place said : "Take whateve the h*ll you want off that piece o' junk! I'm gonna give the rest to the scrap man."

          I did drag alot of that thing off over the next couple of weeks. About the third time I went back, it was gone. But - I'd saved alot of cool parts off it anyways.

          No deceptive flags to prove I'm patriotic - no biblical BS to impress - just ME and Studebakers - as it should be.
