Gearbox studebaker rockne


Recommended Posts

Dear lady's/gentleman

 

I have another question

About the gearbox

Í had the studebaker rockne for thirty years in the barn

Because of COVID I had to do something

So I started to rebuild the car

They spray two colours (red/white)

Mostly after thirty years I have Al the parts

With help from people from the aaca I collected the parts I didn't had (David Babcock)

And from other honest people from other websites

Now my question

What can I do with this 

See photos 1/2

Thanks and enjoy living

I believe that would be the knob to actuate the free wheeling transmission.  It was supposed to save fuel by putting the car into neutral when you let off the gas.  You lose engine braking when it's engaged, so was deemed to be dangerous, especially going down hill.
