    Looking for Delco distributor with points access window for Stude V* and GT tachometer

    I'm Looking for a Delco distributor with the points access window for a Stude V8 and a GT tachometer. Had one of those distributors on one of my cars 30 years ago, but I imagine by now they are a tough cookie to procure. Also I would like to find a tach as well. For some reason my 64 GT does not have that option, yet it has the Avanti powershift on the floor. The dash just looks off balance without the tach on the right!
    Thanks.

    I don't think the tach will work with the window dist. unless you have it converted to electronic. -Jim

    It is the EARLY ('55-'61) SW Tach with the Distributor drive under the Dist. Cap that will only work with the Early Delco non-window Dist.

    A '62-'64 GT Hawk gets the Newer Type Tach. with a sending unit under the dash, and does not care what stock Stude. distributor you have, or with Points or Pertronix Electronic Ignition.

    So the '60-'61 Lark Delco Window Dist. should work fine, if you can find a GT Hawk Tach. for sale.

    Anything worth doing deserves your best shot. Do it right the first time. When you're done you will know it. { I'm just the guy who thinks he knows everything, my buddy is the guy who knows everything.} cheers jimmijim*****SDC***** member

    I have a window distributor that I was going to put on eBay soon. If you're interested send me a private message.
