  • 1962 Hawk Tach Sending unit

    The tach on the Hawk doesn't work. While looking around under the dash, I don't see a sending unit. Where is it and what does it look like?

    There were some tach sending units stacked between the distributor and the dist. cap.

      This is an electronic tach. Shouldn't the sending unit be under the dash someplace?

        The ones I'm familiar with have the sending unit built into the head, just has a wire going to the coil.

          The sending unit is either round or rectangular. About an inch thick. It should be attached to the main metal crossbar behind the dash near the steering column. It sits on top of the 'u' shaped channel. Anyway, that's the best my memory can do.

            Lots of guesses, mostly wrong. The 62-64 Hawk have a small rectangular box mounted on the dash brace. The car with the Avanti engine have a brass, disk shaped unit.

              Small rectangular box about 3" x 1-1]4"x 1". not exactly but close as I can remember. This was located on the back side of a 62 Hawk dash. jimmijim P.S. John, you beat me with your reply by less than 1 minute,

                    Thanks guys. I looked, but still don't see it, unless its being hidden by the cross bar? Will look again in the morning, but my back hurts from trying to look under the dash in such a contortion!!

                      Check the engine side of the firewall. Some dealer installed units were placed there for convenience, between the battery and the disributor.

                        You said this is an electronic tach. Is this the analog Stewart Warner tach or is this an aftermarket electronic tach? As it was said before, if it's an aftermarket tach you might not have a sending unit to speak of as it might might be integrated into the circuitry on the tach itself(no external sending unit). Check the model of the tach to see if it is the stock tach.

                          I will pull the unit out of the dash sometime today. But it seem to be the original tach.

                            ALL the factory-installed ones I have seen are located ON TOP of the dash-brace a couple inches from the fuse panel... just to the left of the steering wheel (unless yours is RHD)

                            It is a small white box (approx dimentions posted earlier).. with 4-wires coming out the bottom, and 2-posts coming off the side (6-cyl/V-8 choice). One of the posts should have a WHITE wire going to it from the tachometer head.

                            Just-in-case: here's the wiring diagram:

                              This is a S/W sending unit, but not a stock version for a GT Hawk. Most of the S/W sending units looked like this one, except the early round ones for other applications. If you find one of these you probably don't have the stock sender.
