Our breakfast meeting was on July 16th at the Cracker Barrel, 1250 SW 11th Way (FAU Research Park Blvd.) in Deerfield Beach at 9 am.
Fourteen people attended the breakfast. We had a great time discussing our vehicles and ailments (vehicular and personal.) Some of the discussion items included: Where to get parts; how to get things re-chromed; and how to tell what the differential ratio is.
One of the discussions about my 1950 2R5 1/2 ton pickup was about the manifold. The 2R5 is supposed to have a single manifold comprising both intake and exhaust (part # 533790.) The 2R6 has an intake manifold (part # 675232) and an exhaust manifold (part # 681052.) Both of these have a single exhaust pipe. Somehow my truck has the exhaust split so that I have dual exhausts.

We will be meeting at the Friendly’s in Delray Beach on September 10th for the International Drive Your Studebaker Day.
