  • Fuel System: Fuel pump question 1964 GT Hawk

    Can someone please tell Me if the original Carter fuel pump for the 1964 Gran Turismo hawks (Non Turbo) 1) had the Fuel filter joined as One piece? 2) What is the correct part# please and 3) where do I locate the part #'s? Thank you in advance!

    Studebaker part numbers for a 64 Hawk can be found in the 59-64 chassis parts book, available in both paper and CD form from a number of parts vendors.

    I don't have a 64 Hawk, but I believe the fuel pump depends on whether you have an R1 engine. If you do, the part number is 1557213.

          The parts book lists 1551168 before engine # PM326 and 1562992 after. Either should work. Older pumps should work as well.

            In answer to the original question re "Fuel filter joined as One piece", original 1964 v-8 fuel pumps (at least the one on my '64 Cruiser) did/do have a (perhaps 1.5 inch diameter x 1 inch tall, pleated) paper filter element inside the sheet metal bowl on the bottom of the pump.
            30+ years ago, when my car would not pull & was cutting out above about 40 mph, the cause was that filter being clogged. No part #, but it was a WIX item.
