    If you join the Studebaker Drivers Club you will have all this information in your hands in the form of the monthly magazine TURNING WHEELS.
    Glad to have you aboard.
    They are on page 145 in this link:

    You will probably also want a copy of the factory Body and Chassis catalogs and the Shop Manual.

      I think your car should have 2 mounts, one on each side of the bell housing, rather than one single mount at the back.

          I believe Figure 72 is what you are looking for, the ONLY rear Engine supports necessary are the TWO mounts under the Torque Converter Housing, I can't believe they would be missing if the car runs and drives, because it could not, throttle pressure linkage and shift linkage would be too far off to work, AND bent.

          Studebaker Transmissions all hang on the Converter housing, since both are Cast Iron, there is plenty enough strength there.
