  • 53 Truck

    Hi Again,

    I just posted for help with my new 53 pickup for a radiatior. I forgot to mention that not only do I need a radiator I need a starter for it also. The starter is on the oppisite side from my car. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.
    Best Regards,
    Chuck

    BTW, Charlie sent me a photo of his intended powerplant/tranny and it's from an M-series truck. This means the starter's one of those that has the bendix that pulls in from the rear - not the type that this 2R truck would have used.

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

      Biggsy,

      The bendix pulls in from the rear (from behind the ring gear) on my 55 champion truck motor, and on the '57 truck motor that will be replacing it (yeah, it's still sitting pretty in its red paint job, on my garage floor).

        Chuck,

        Starters I've got; several rebuildable cores at least. I OUGHT to have a radiator, too, but I can't remember for certain.

        Depending on where in the USA you are, getting them to you could be easy, or it could be tough.

        Chances are, you can find what you need local to you. Are you aware of the Studebaker Truck Talk forum?

          Well, I was mistaken about the starter. said starter setup (unique to trucks with the "Champion" engine in them) was used until the end of truck production (with the exception of some that were built using automatic transmissions). My bad because I've never dealt with any 170/185-engined trucks newer than an M-series.[8]
          Charlie DID tell me that this is a '47 vintage engine PLUS, it has a floor shifter sticking out of the tranny in the photos. That's where I came to the assumption of this being an M-series powerplant.[B)]

            Thanks for researching that for us, Biggsy. I was beginning to wonder if I had two oddball Champion engines. [:0]
