    Studebaker did some weird stuff with driveshafts... "broken back" driveshaft setups, U-joint angles larger than "the book" says will work, and u-joints slightly out of phase for some reason...

    When I look at the way Stude offset their engine to the right it appears to me that the engine is angled. Am I mistaken? I thought that was why they put that big spacer under the rear mount for the Flight-O-Matics.

    What Nate said!
    You will notice...most ALL of the OEM's do it also!

    absolutely. just don't angle it; the pinion and the trans tailshaft should be parallel to each other.

    started a topic Hot Rod 101 Steering column

    Hot Rod 101 Steering column

    I am in the process of rebuilding a 1947 M truck.
    The question I have is a generic to any modified vehicle.
    I modified the engine and transmission mounts to fit the V8 engine centering both in the truck.

    Then I put in the steering column, the steering column is touching the exhaust manifold of the V8.

    The question I have is: is it permissible to move engine toward the passenger side , about a half an inch without causing vibration or some other problems?
    Thanks
