Greetings,

I am trying to find out some information who is not a LSR, not computer savvy, but who is fixing up a 1950 Studebaker truck.

The truck is a 1950 Studebaker 1/2 ton C-Cab.

He would like to know what the difference is between a 2R5 & 2R6 Gearbox is.

Also, does anyone have one they want to sell? I can provide him your contact information.

TIA,
Clay
