  • 56 Tachometer sending unit-for sale-pictures

    Is the 56 sending unit a one year only fit? Does it
    fit in between the dist. and cap? Is it brown baklite?
    What are they worth? Does anyone need one?

    unless you're talking about a 56J, no, they were used on all Hawks equipped with tachometers 56-61. Yes, it fits between the dist. and cap, I'd call it more of a tan color, and somewhere around $125ish for a NOS one.

    I'm guessing you found one laying around; if you have a Delco non-window distributor, see if it fits. If it does, it's for a 56-61 Hawk or other car using that distributor. 56J's used an Autolite distributor and therefore used a different tach sender. I'm assuming that other versions for other distributors were also made; it's a Stewart-Warner product and they also sold the "pulse drive" tachs as an aftermarket accessory.

      Yes, this one was in the 55 I just bought. And, I know
      they were used on the Delco. Yes, I believe tan is the
      color, more so than brown. But, it's smaller than the
      Delco dist. There are the odd clips that look like they
      may be for the Autolite. Sound like a 56J ?

        I wished the were available for $125.00.
        Even used ones go for 180.00. N.O.S. ones are not around.
        Autolite fitting ones 56J are at least $300.00 now.

          I must be out of touch. I know I didn't spend that much for the one for my 56J and I know those are harder to find. Somewhere I still have *most* of a Stude one, but the plastic is pretty shaky looking.

              If anyone on the forum needs it, you can have
              this one fo $100.00, before I put it on ebay.

                You called it a 56 but it came from a 55. I've got a 6-volt 55 with Delco ignition and would love to get one for it.

                  This doesn't fit a Delco. It's for a 56J with Autolite. It was
                  in the 55 I bought. Someone had put a Hawk dash in the 55 and
                  the sender would't fit.
