Hi Everybody,

Just picked up a 1946 Hudson Super Six, and I'm looking for the shop manual for the Engine/Transmission, etc.  I see on Hudsonterraplane.com there is a 1948, is that close enough?  Is there a 1946 manual available?

Thanks to all

    There a few bits and pieces in the Club Library including this one : "1946 Mechanical Information and Service Specifications"

    The Hudson 6 cyl up to 1947 had babbit bearings and 3 main bearings with splasher oiling. Very different from the engine Hudson came out with in 1948 and used up to 1956. It had bearing replaceable inserts and pressure oiling with four mains and more horsepower and durability.

    Does the Hudson Store not carry a reprint of the Shop Manual ?
