    Are you sure they were on the Forum, Mark, and not in Turning Wheels?

    Our interview with Studebaker Engine Engineer Harold Johnson Jr. in the March 2010 Turning Wheels was the feature article that month and included five nice, period Studebaker Engineering Dept photos from circa 1948-1957. BP

          That photo is from building #72, the engine machine shop/engine assembly building. The enging dyno room in the engineering building was a lot smaller.

                That would be a good job in the winter but a real sweat lodge during the summer months...

                  This photo looks like some test runs too: probably faster to run a line of them since by '51 there were a lot MORE of them to run........ I wanna see a clear photo of the 'studebaker engine test run aprons' they are wearing.

                      Hi Richard, do you have anything around the time they were testing the first V-8?
                      Thanks,
                      Mark

                          Thanks Richard for all the great photos you’ve posted!
                          I am not sure what year the V-8 was first manufactured by Studebaker… but if you had any pictures’ of that approximate time frame, that would be cool. What size was the first V-8 motor Studebaker put into production and do we know the names of the guys that worked on that project.

                            Did they test every engine? I always assumed that they were built then installed....

                              The first V-8 was introduced on the 1951 Commander. It was a 232.6 cubic inch engine (3 3/8" X 3 1/4" bore and stroke) that developed 120 horsepower at 4000 rpm. Stanwood Sparrow was the vp in charge of engineering at the time so it was his "team" that was responsible. The engine had several general characteristics as the 1949 Cadillac V-8 (331 c.i.) but also differed in many details. Too broad a topic to address here in detail. In any event above is a photo of one of the early V-8's being tested in Engineering.
