Studebaker Technical and Troubleshooting Information
(Serving the community since 1996 )

(This is a compendium of information , mostly from Internet
sources, began in 1992. It is frequently updated and the source
of information is included whenever possible)

This is page 2 - SEE NOTE BELOW -

There are TWO PAGES, each page with the same index. Some content CAN be on the OTHER page and you will be directed back and forth transparently, as required. So you'll only notice the single column files.

If you use the Google search, there may be omissions. It only checks Google's cached pages,
since they last crawled my site. You'd be better off using Ctl-f (keyword) with Firefox browser OR use the index below.
