            Found it! E12-6769 is on Post 58 of Pg. 2.
            Wow that's a LOT of scanning! Some of these 8E Trucks have a REALLY large number of Pics, mostly the junky ones.

            So this verifies what we thought that this Nice Orange 3/4 Ton with the Cloverleaf stamped Engine Block, is or Was for sure a 6E Heavy Duty 289! 6EJ312 was Assembled Sept. 12, 1963.

            That is, If any of the Roto Cap Valve Rotators, Special Valve Springs, Aluminum Cam Gear and Tri-Metal Clevite 77 Bearings are still in there or replaced after the rebuild.

              If you look at the first post, the VIN numbers are hotlinks to the actual vehicle within all the pages - no searching involved.

                    • 64 Champ E5139484

                      I bought this truck in late 2018 after it had been sitting under a shed roof for about 4-5 years . I had serviced it intermittently for the previous owner over the years , just doing the bare minimum to keep it running , never wanting to spend the effort to make it safe and reliable .

                      I spent 2019 going over the mechanicals , brakes gone through and M/cyl upgraded , carb overhaul , fuel tank removed and cleaned of the 20lbs of rust in it , new tires to replace the dry rotted ones on it , clean the mice out of the glove box and exhaust , buff out the inch of dust on the paint , tune-up and adjustments , fluids and filters , radiator recore and everything else to make it safe and reliable . Also I took off the poorly installed A/C and power steering and returned it to manual steering . Hoping to make the A/C functional again soon .

                      In 2020 , from April it has been my daily driver to work and I have been adding some dress-up under the hood . New exhaust will be going on soon and I am chasing rattles and noises .

                      Ove the winter I will be pulling out the interior and fixing a bunch of problems with wiring and non-functioning items . Also replacing the old dirty carpet and freshening up the interior and fixing the weatherstripping an

                        FYI - Studebaker International had a three foot deep pallet sized crate full of NOS 8E5 main wiring harnesses - easy to replace the whole thing instead of chasing gremlins... Thanks for the info.

                              By your VIN number, (136452), it looks like you truck is actually a 1963 Champ - first '63 was VIN 136001.
