    The sender on my car was mounted above the brace ( over the ignition switch), near a junction block with the green wire from the sender and the pink wire to the distributor. The sender is about 2 inches square and has a white, plasterlike packing on the bottom end with the terminals.

    Didn't get a chance to pull the Tach today, but looking at the posts, I wonder if the sending unit is being hidden by the brace? I saw several wires going to an area on top the brace, but couldn't see on top to see if there was anything there. I can say though that I really ache today from lying in the position I was in yesterday!!

    There are a couple of bolts that go through the brace to hold the sending unit. Get one of those small headlamps then you'll be able to see a lot better while you're lying on your back with tools in your hands in that cramped space.

    quote:Originally posted by Studeman

    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.
    I'm having the same issue with my 63 GT, but I haven't yet determined if the sending unit is bad or something was not connected back up during some PO's resto work. (Like the windshield washer bag that's not there. )

    So, here's my question: I see the sending unit on top of the dash brace - how is it attached to the brace, and how do I get it off if I need to swap it out? It appears to be mounted from the top. Not a lot of elbow room up there.

    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.

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

    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.

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

    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!!

    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,

    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.
