    For what it is worth, this "switch" came with a 61 Hawk parts car I bought. Slightly different number than mentioned before. I have the complete assembly (except the spring clips

    Why did I say there was kidding about this sender being for a Corvette? Because they used mechanical cable drive tachs.

    This sounds like a tremendous offer to resolve your situation.

    If it is for a six, it could also be a rare Nash Healy tachometer sender. They had a big six cylinder engine with a Delco distributor and most likely had a tachometer.

    Doesn't anyone have an old Stewart Warner catalog?

    Oops. I see that Mark already did that. So it fits a Delco V-8.

    Well of course that’s what we’re trying to find out! I keep hoping It’s made out of unobtanium and fits the super-rare ‘54 Oldsmobuick Skymofraz GT prototype and one of you has been looking for it all your life. If so, please PM me!

    The ID of the (54-61 Stude V8) Delco cap is 3.775", and the 56J Autolite cap is 3.385". So the sender you have is too small for the Delco mounted tach sender in some 55, 57 and 58 Studes, and too large for a 56J.

    Kenny, could you please measure the diameter and post it here. I'll measure a spare Studebaker distributor. Thanks.

    If it is for a six cylinder, maybe it is for a 54 Corvette!!!

    I just went out in the garage and looked at distributor caps for 259/289 Delco & Prestolite, and 56J Autolite. The tac adapter pictured in past #1 here almost looks small enough to be for a six cylinder. I'd almost put money on it, but not a lot of money. LOL
    I am too lazy to go out and pop the cap on the 56J, to look at the inked numbers and compare with the one above. That would be a waste of time anyway, since I can tell by looking at the pic, that sender is definitely not for 56J.
