  • 1960 lark on Ebay

    I am interested as to why the supercharger that's from a G.Hawk has a
    dipstick?,and not a connection to the engine.Did anybody notice this?

    Didn't all VS57's have dipsticks?

          That lark was built in 1060 A.D. and, like all VS57's, has a dipstick.

            Well Jack, maybe you better run outside and check the oil on your dipstick on the R2 Hawk! [:0]

                To StudeRich; I know my R2 has a dip stick however, my thinking was that all adjustable belt
                model superchargers were engine oil fed, that is why the bearings failed from bad oil resulting
                in the change to a closed systems,that brings me back to my origional question,were all VR units engine oil fed?

                  Rockne10,
                  Are you sure it was built in 1060 A.D.?

                    You're right, Gary. It may have been built before that and only registered in 1060.[)]
                    That's what the ad says!

                    Just adding some levity at the expense of the seller's typo.

                      In a word, Jack: No. All Studebaker superchargers 1957-1964 model years, regardless of model, had their own oiling system independent of the engine oiling system. There was virtually no difference between variable-ratio and fixed-ratio blowers in that regard.

                      You may have been confusing this with the McCulloch supercharger used on 300 HP 1957 Fords and Thunderbirds. The Ford unit shared the engine's oiling system, but was a completely different supercharger that bears little resemblance to the Studebaker type. BP
