Perhaps Charles could add a third hybrid to his 109 project!

Hmmm.. the specs page lists the axles as having 3.63:1 diff with a 3.67:1 hub reduction.

These don't look like portal axles, so how did they do the hub reduction? Planetary gear set or what?

The legend says
Quote:
it retained the original gearbox and transfer box and coupled them to a pair of Studebaker axles with GKN-Kirkstall planetary hub reductions and the same tractor type wheels that had been used before.
I have a couple of pics...somewhere...

I think they were sometimes referred to as "Forest Rovers".
