  • RHC 1964 GT HAWK PO question

    Well I bought and brought it to KY uneventfully. After looking at the production order I see X89 AC3311 CAR as one line listed.
    The only reference I found to it was a oil filter cartridge. Now Paul said there was no spin on filter available due to the steering box interference. Does that mean there was a remote oil filter provided from the factory and the X89 was a filter replacement or the remote filter? Maybe one of the Australian members knows? I think I will need a driver side (lol) fender front (US passenger side) Anyone have one to part with?

    Yes, that's what it means. A partial-flow filter. Probably one like was used on pre-full-flo engines.

    Did you get a "deal" on it?

    No deceptive flags to prove I'm patriotic - no biblical BS to impress - just ME and Studebakers - as it should be.

          I don't remember there being an oil filter of any sort on the car.

            Hi,
            from memory RHC Studebakers did run the full flow system like the 63 and 64 LHC cars had.

            From memory they used a smaller oil filter can. Make sure your engine mounts are in the chassis holes correct for RHD which pushes the motor away from the steering box. ie opposite to what LHC would be set at. The holes are in the chassis mount to the enging mount.
            Also make sure that with auto transmission mounts that the thick spacer for the transmission mount is in place opposite to what LHC cars had so your motor is mounted correctly. You can pick up on that in the parts book. All of these things give the motor correct clearance for RHC.

            To make sure the full flow oil filter for RHC never had any problems, I always gave the oil filter can a big dent right where the drag ling comes up on lock as it was a little close. That fixes the problem

            Some Australian cars did have a block off plate for the full flow so they reverted to partial flow, but I cant remember if this was on all cars or not.

            If you own a Bermuda brown RHC 64 GT in the US that came from Manchester in the UK then I have driven your car.

            Jim Quigley from Melbourne can answer the oil filter question better than I as he still lives there. I think he goes by Quigleydownunder on the forum.

            Regards
            Greg

            ps, most of the Studebakers in the UK were from D'letren and LHC but much nicer cars than their US assembeled cousins as D'letren was probably the worlds best quality assembler of Studebakers.

              Greg,
              Thanks for all the information. The car is indeed Bermuda Brown, so it sounds like you did drive it. Was the propane system on the car at the time? I would like to know when the propane was added to the car's fuel choices. If you would be willing to share your memories and experiences with the car and its owner(s) I would appreciate it.
              Certainly post here or email me as you wish. If you have any pictures that would be great too. I am assembling a history so to speak of the car's past. All tidbits appreciated.
              Thanks
              Steve

                It was/is Bermuda Brown with a gorgeous brown cloth interior- column-shift Flightomatic, clock, no radio, no tach.
                I bought the car in '85 (was shipped in early '86) from C.A.A. (Tony) Sadler who was based in Birmingham. He didn't have a permanent residence at that time, but had lived in Cork, Ireland for some time. The '64 GT was kept in Birmingham when I met him. The other two and a half cars and the two engines were near Cork.
