  • 289 in a 49 half ton

    I have a 49 half ton and want to install a 289 with a T10 behind it. Easy or difficult?

    Harold,
    The early 2R's lacked the engine support K frame that allows an easy installation of the Stude V8/Commander six. I forget exactly what serial # the frame was changed but theres a related discussion on Stude truck talk . Look at 1949 2R10 frame discussion started by Ray. Toward bottom of the page.

    If you use the search feature at the top of the page you can find older
    posts regarding this subject as it comes up constantly.
    The T-10 part you'll have to fab up as that tranny was never used in Stude trucks except maybe in a engineering dept test mule.
