    Come on Curt, do you think Bob bought his Transtar yesterday? We all know that every Stude. ever built has a Borg Warner Transmissiion and the Overdrive is part of the Trans., with maybe the exception of the '50-'55 Studebaker Automatic which was built by Detroit Gear Division of Borg Warner.

    All of us who have ever owned an Overdrive also know that you technically COULD use Overdrive 1st. because to shift to Overdrive in any gear, all you need to do is get the speed up to the Governor kick-in speed of about 28-30 MPH, but if you care about the Trans. you would never do that, or at least not more than once!

      Rich I will probably talk to you at lenght about a goodly number of Studebaker questions. But, for now what insight or suggestions are you willing top share on the Automatic in Sandi's new 61 Hawk.

        It is one of the best Automatics ever built, properly maintain it, use only Type "F" ATF and it will outlast the car. By that I mean it needs PROPER throttle pressure adjustment and band adjustment, that is key to it's long term survival.

        Any Automatic with slipping clutch plates or bands will self destruct, no matter how good it is, contamination and heat are their biggest killers.
