    Remember, the dash is fiberglass. You will need to make certain the ground is good. Check that out. Also, the switches can acquire a small amount of corrosion that will cause them to not conduct at contact points. sometimes, a few cycles of operating the switches will restore them to conducting current. A careful placement of a shot of contact cleaner could help as well. However, be careful with that because the contact cleaner can dissolve paint and stain cosmetic surfaces.

    Don't worry about the Studebaker stories. Heck, I have enough to loan you a few. You can always tell about the one your uncle had...you know...the 1950 Hawk...that would do 100 in second gear...once the overdrive kicked in...getting 30 miles per gallon....(we've all heard 'em)

    Afraid it needs more than wiper blades. Going thru the motions of scratching my head and wondering where to start. Turned on hedlights and dash lights - nut dash lights MIA - so I started on electrical. Power to dash light switch, send power to out wires lights lit - didn't want to take switch apart so jumped hot lead from H/L switch to dash lights now they work when headlights are on. Fixed brake lights, turn signals (flasher), parking lights even backup lights. Body work is my weak point and it needs some - rust, paint, panels etc..
    John - would love to get together with you, I can bench race with the best of them but not too many stories with a Studebaker theme, working on those now

    DAVE! Welcome! I don't know how I missed your posts until now. We can't be more than 15 or so miles apart. Right now I don't own a Hawk, but have had some in the past.

    We need to get together for coffee and some good Studebaker conversation.
