    Were the water jackets in Los Angles built engines any better with less core sand than say the south bend built engines? Has anyone ever ask this before?

    I think we will find, that as the bodies were built in South Bend, so were the engines.

      Cars and Engines, ASSEMBLED in L.A. just like the Hamilton, ONT Canada cars, that does not mean that Studebaker could afford multiple MANUFACTURING Plants! [:0]

      So that means that ALL Studebakers need serious cleaning of the water jackets, especially after this many years, and especially the Calif. cars which were usually NEVER filled with rust resisting Anti-Freeze after the first cooling system repair!

          Is there ANY other possibility? There was only one Foundry. [:0]

            Railroad photo on the Forum awhile back of the frame work installed in an open gondola by the RR to hold car bodies in an verticle position. The photo was of '41 Studebaker bodies.

              Thanks for the update. It's interesting to see how the factory in LA worked, and How southBend managed.
