    Perhaps you missread my intentions, I was saying that the lower ones were the drain plugs......That's what the duh was for.Sorry if you mistakenly thought I was casting aspersions upon your intelligence.

    There is an analogy here some where. You know, people sometimes treat their mechanic like dogs.

    You know...they call their dog a dumb animal...but I ask...who is working to buy the feed?

    If they call their mechanic dumb...just ask who is dumb? The person who can't fix anything, or the one doing the fixing?

    The ones that get me going is the relative that calls me to fix something and then starts telling me how to do the job. I have found the best way to deal with that is to hand them the tools, take a break, pull up a chair with a cold drink and say nothing. Once that awkward moment passes...it is amazing how quiet the room gets as they hand the tools back and leave you alone.

    Here is where you can find the overdrive troubleshooting guide. It is under the technical pages.

    Ray is a great guy (studeman on the forum. Haven't heard from him for a while.)

    ya please read post it only does it in reverse, its not the clutch, it drives fine going forward untill u let off the gas then it shudders unless u give it gas or push in clutch, and it acts like slipping cluch when u go in reverse. clutch is strong it will burn tires if u dump it.

    Welcome to the forum. If you don't get an instant reply...don't get discouraged and go away. Although the Studebaker Driver's Club has thousands of members world-wide, many do not know about this forum or participate. Those who do, come and go. So...please be patient.

    Often if an overdrive will not go in reverse, it could be that the solenoid is not pulling it out of overdrive and in that case, the "Reverse Lockout" will not allow it to go in reverse. Also, if you are trying to pull away from a standing stop and the transmission's overdrive is still engaged, it will feel like you have a slipping clutch or loss of power because of the gearing while in overdrive. The vibrating is another problem altogether. You could have a slipping clutch, chattering clutch, or other problems.

    I see that you do not show where you are located. It would be good to find some members of the Studebaker Club in your area and get some experienced eyeballs on your problem. This could help you determine if you have a slight or serious problem. Hopefully, it is simple and you can repair it and begin to have a good spring and summer enjoying your ride.
