    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.

    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

    Wow that's a LOT of scanning!
    If you look at the first post, the VIN numbers are hotlinks to the actual vehicle within all the pages - no searching involved.

    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.

    /Cut/The carburetor, rebuilt. The linkage doesn't look quite right to me. I haven't tried to start it yet. It was missing a thermostat housing. I was able to buy another carb from eBay and took the best parts of each. There was no fitting between the thermostatic choke and the breather to the valve cover, so I epoxied a tube into a bolt./Cut/
    Welcome to the SDC and to SDC Forum Ace! Glad to see ANOTHER New Washingtonian here!

    You REALLY got me confused on this one!

    The Thermostatic Choke Cover has a small tube that goes into another tube in the Center Heat/Exhaust Crossover Port of the Intake Manifold and looped back out, just to gather HEAT for the Automatic Choke.

    None of this would be connected to or have anything to do with a "Valve Cover".
    Of course all of this is on the Right Side of the Carb. so I can't see any of what you are talking about.

    The Crankcase Breather system would be a PCV Valve connected by rubber Hose to the Tube coming out of the Back of the Carb. Base and connecting on it's other end to the rear of the Lifter Cover.

    All of the Parts you describe and show look correct for a '64 V8, including that Stromberg Model WW 6-132 which IS a 1964 Carb.

    We do not know of any last minute substitutions, parts shortages or mixed parts on ANY of the Last South Bend Studebaker Cars or Trucks.

    All of the Correct Parts are very well called out and illustrated VERY well in the Studebaker 7E to 8E ('62-'64) Truck Parts Catalog.

ID:	1728180 < Here is a '63 or '64 Champ "T" Cab Pickup. (it enlarges 2 more times)
    That curled Tube is the correct Choke Heater Tube going into the Intake Manifold.

    NOTE: please pay NO attention to that Upper "Hot" Water Inlet Hose going to the Climatizer Heater Core, it is SUPPOSED to go to the Control VALVE to control the Temp. but this one is incorrectly routed to the Core, so it cannot be turned OFF and is running backwards.
