    It sure looks like it, even though the picture doesn't show the impeller and full gasket area. The grease fitting and large bearing area make me wonder if it's a truck or some sort of heavy duty pump, but hard to tell from the pic. Google "studebaker champion six cylinder water pump" and look at some various pictures and compare to yours.

    (I know you didn't ask this.........but be aware that there are some differences in Champion water pumps over the years - especially the pulley size/position which means the hub position on the shaft changed.)

          r1lark, Because you mentioned truck/heavy duty could it be Commander 6?

            No, they look way different. Google "Studebaker commander six water pump" and look at the pics.

              Mark, is this for the 170 that's in your M-series truck and, if so, what is the engine number stamped in to the block, since I believe I remember you were changing the engine.

                Thank you for your response rockne10,

                My previous engine change comments were derived from the fact that prior to the purchase of my '48 M15A-20, Thieves had plumaged the engine compartment leaving only the block, trans & manifolds. In addition to the engine component theft they also plumaged the brite-work, Inner fenders and LH radiator bulkhead panel. In the event the engine was no good (absent the head) I consulted Bo about my contemplated purchase of (2) Champ engines I came across for which the seller was asking $200 each. Bo confirmed the 1R block number on one was a truck engine and the '52 car engine were resonably priced at $200 @ but in true CASO fashion I offered the seller $150 each and he accepted. Both spin and have been dry stored since they were pulled. Had them freighted from Ohio to Georgia for another $160 but they arrived nice/dry/clean. I told Bo I'd like to have him build one good engine out of all of this if the logistics from GA to FL work out.

                BTW, I'm in the process of purchasing all the "under-the-hood" sheet metal which was stolen from a gentleman on the TAPTALK Stude Truck site. Nice and dry from an M16 grain truck donor in KS..............Again freight included but my goal is to put this awesome truck back on the road again in "bone stock" original condition to include it's current well deserved patina.

                As an after thought I would like to extend my thanks to RQ, Bob Kapteyn, Matt @ SA and so many others for all the help they have provided me with not only my 3G-Q project but my '48 M15A-20 restoration as well.

                To all you far more "STUDE" knowledgable guy's out there (To include Andy at the Museum) I wish to extend my debt of gratitude for all your assistance over the years as I navigate through the manuals/blueprints/part resources to acheive my goals. I very much appreciate it.
