  • Cool/Heat: cabin climatizer hawk

    my underseat{drivers} side heater fan quit running.the passenger side has not worked since i bought the car several years ago.i had the oil changer the same day the fan quit.it appears that an electrical conection could have been knocked loose.question one, where do wires connect to heater fan and are they under the carpet or under the car. i cannot see any connections above the floor line.question two, is there a fuse for the heater fan?question 3, i see only one wire coming out of the switch, is there one missing or is the fan grounded to the body?question 3 , is there a heater fan in the fender well?

    On my 62 GT, fan is in the passenger fender well. Harness comes up through fender and runs near the cowl, under the hood. There is a fuse under the dash, behind the fan switch, maybe it blew?

      WHAT YEAR "Hawk" are we talking about: 1956 to 1964 ??

      Question # 3 : Yes on '56-'62 Hawks, the Passenger Side Heater Fan is connected to the Fender Door Air Duct inside the Right Fender.

      There is Only One Wire on any single speed Motor or ANY electrical devices, as ALL of them are Grounded to the Battery (-) through the Body, Frame and Engine.

      The Defroster Fan Motor and Heater Fan Motor run at Two Speeds accomplished by a "slow-down" Resistor for Low speed on the Switch.

      Your Left Side Heater is a Optional Accessory rarely ordered for Extreme Climates, it's Fan will be under the Floor with the Heater Core.
      The Fuses are mostly all on the Switches or in line on the Wire like the Radio, but Headlights use a Circuit Breaker.

      You can always find where a Wire goes, by following it or looking for it's matching Color Coded Wire where you "Think" it should go.

      If in doubt, use a Test Light to find out.

        What do you use for the hose from fan to heater? Where do you buy them?
        Thanks, Rafe

          I got mine from Studebaker West. I don't think they have anymore as Carl told me I bought the last of it. It's tough stuff, but expensive and barely fits around the ducting. I had to lay it in the sun for awhile to fit it over things.

          Correct NEW Wire re-enforced Rubber Air Ducts are at Studebaker Vendors for the last 50 Years.

        I used flexible aluminum dryer duct, painted flat black.

          The 1961 Hawks were ALSO named "Hawks" !
          MOST still refer to "Hawks" as, to mean: ANY 1956 to 1964 without a YEAR stated.

          Sorry that apparently, None of the 6 or 7 Tips in Post # 3 about your Car in less than 1 Hour, were ANY Help.

            your post was of some help, but most others were about ducting and hoses.
