  • Electrical: Golden Hawk tach sender

    I got this off of ebay 'cos it looked like the right one for my 57 GH, but after I cleaned it up, and replaced the brittle wire, I found out it must not be the right one...doesn't fit, and I'm pretty sure I have the original distributor

    Any idea what this one might be for?

    There are Delco and Autolite versions. The '56J used the Autolite and IIRC, the '57-61 Stude engines used the Delco, which is larger in diameter. Is yours too large or too small?

      That does not look like a 56J tach sender. So there's no telling what it may be for. Maybe put it back on ebay. LOL

        1955 Speedsters used them, but it doesn't look right for that either. Was the head unit a sourced Borg Warner item like the rest or the gauges? If so, maybe you could find out what other cars used it.

            Stewart-Warner made most Studebaker gauges.

            The Synchronous Drive Tachometer was also used in trucks, buses, heavy equipment, stationary equipment, so heads with only 0-3,500 RPM show up occasionally. There were also mechanical drives for diesel and other applications without a distributor.

            The '55 Speedster was a 6V as were some other early users. From '56-61, they were 12V.

              I was hoping it would be for the 56J, but don't think it is...it looks like the diameter of the shaft on the tiop is bigger than mine, and the hole inside doesn't have the flat area shown in this video
              Thanks for sharing the video!
