    One too many digits. If it starts with a "6" it is a truck part but should only have six digits. I suggest you open the box!!

      Is in a PACKARD box? That number fits right in with PACKARD transmission numbers, but a pic. of it would be nice. TIA

        Richard, where did you get the notion that 6 denotes a truck part? A quick scan of parts books will show many six-digit numbers that START with 6 and are CAR-specific. There ARE 7-digit part numbers starting with 6 and there are some such numbers FOR switches listed in the parts price list book. But that book only shows the prices of a given part numberf - not the application. I DO suspect it's a Packard number tho.
        No deceptive flags to prove I'm patriotic - no biblical BS to impress - just ME and Studebakers - as it should be.

          I think it is a Compensator Switch or Solenoid for a 56 Golden Hawk. I have those comments in my parts inventory, not sure where I gathered that information from.

              From that picture I'd say it's a PACKARD torsion-level compensator solenoid SWITCH, but I'm not a 110% sure!

                The number is in the 55-56 Packard parts book, and it IS a compensator switch for 56th series.

                      Bob, the only 7 digit part numbers that start with a 6 are those from Packard, most if not all of these are specific to the '56 Golden Hawk. Therefore they were Packard parts that fit on a Studebaker. I am aware of very few parts that were six digits and starting with the number 6 that were specific to passenger car use. They would represent a very, very, very small number of parts. No, I am not inclined to look them up.
