  • Part number changes

    Is there a reprint available for the list of part number changes that studebaker made through out the years, or is that something that somebody has yet to do?

    They never "changed" numbers on parts unless there was at least SOME little difference to a particular piece. But did they just change part numbers from one year to the next - no.

    Miscreant adrift in
    the BerStuda Triangle


    1957 Transtar 1/2ton
    1960 Larkvertible V8
    1958 Provincial wagon
    1953 Commander coupe

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

        About as close as you'll come to "a list" would be a STUDEBAKER PARTS AND ACCESSORIES PRICE LIST, Book F. That book has a listing of Studebaker part & accessory numbers in numerical order. Look up the part number you are interested in. If Studebakers had a newer part or a substituted part, that number will be listed to the right of the original number.

        A few years back the SNM and maybe SASCO too were selling new "Book F."

        Good Luck!!!

            Thank you, a friend of mine has a book that looks like two column ledger paper that came out of a dealership that lists the old part number and the new one to the right of it. I hate having to call him or visit him, because we end up spening a few hours b.s.ing about studebakers(not that this is a bad thing) but usually we have work to be done. And I was referring to for example the part number for a 6 cyl water pump is the same for 59-60 and 62-64, where as 61 is different, but neither match [for example] what stude. intl list for the part number (I know some of their number are their own). I think my parts book shows (dont have the exact numbers im at school now) 1552885? and stude intl show 1553639? and according to Bill's book that is the correct replacement number.Since I'll be at Hershey I'll see if I can pick up book F
            Thank you,

                Mr Biggs is right -- Stude never changed part numbers. They did supercede numbers or provide new substitute part numbers for several previous items no longer available, especially after 1966. Book F was revised about once a year, so a mid-1960s copy would be most useful for late models. But it will not provide any info on part numbers that had become NLA by that time.

                    Really Jon; I don't see the importance of the whole process! If you look for a part by description, in Steven Allen's on line listing or S.I.'s Catalog you'll get the CURRENT part number to order it. If it is not available you won't find it! you're SOL!

                    I admit in those very rare instances where you find a part with a number on it that is no longer listed, that could be a problem.
                    But, unless you are a Stude. parts vendor like I am, and have over 50 tons of parts, it won't happen often.

                    And then a couple of those Stude. Price Lists might be handy to get it's cross reference (hopefully current) part number, I think I did that ONE (1) time, found out that the number I have is a '56 Commander Torque Converter before it was replaced by something better? Who knows, maybe that's the one that has a thrust washer that cuts the Tranny (front support)input shaft OFF!
