Check it out.
    A new car collector friend of mine felt it with his hand and reconnected it. I would never have found it. Back in business, temp gauge wise!

    From previous posts, I would guess 56 Skyhawk 289. However, it would be much more informative to state year, model and engine without any one making an assumption.

    Peter, no offense, but you can't expect an accurate answer when you have not told us the year or the model or type of engine in this car!

    Best we know, this could be a Champion flathead six cylinder, a Commander flathead six cylinder, a '61 thru '64 OHV six cylinder, a 56 Golden Hawk with a Packard V8, a '51 thru '64 Studebaker V8, a '65/'66 McKinnon 6 cylinder, or a '65/'66 McKinnon V8. All of these are different engines with the temp sensor in different locations. And these are only the postwar Studebakers!

    Coolant temp sensor is generally located on the back of one head.

    OK...I found this "on the net"... I think I have one like this on my '60 Lark.

    Usually correct or Factory wire ends are a Round Bullet connector, Male or Female, or a Flat Spade Type connector Male or Female.

    OR, a "CLIP" is usually a Temporary Alligator "Clip".
    It looks like the type of clip used to connect speaker wires.

    Er...I too have sometimes not read posts closely.

    When I read "clip" I think of alligator clip. What type of terminal is on the end of the wire?

    Also need the information as mentioned above.

    The temp sender on my '61 Hawk has a "clip", but the wire is orange. - Jim

    Sometimes, if the car has an automatic transmission, the wiring harness has what appears to be an extra wire that went to the overdrive, if the car had been so equipped.

    But I agree with the request for information on what the car is.

    Is this a retorical question, or are you expecting help to figure out what this wire is?

    If you need help, then the make, year, model, and equipment of the car might assist us in helping you. Even better would be a picture of this wire and clip...............
