  • adding AC to R2 Hawk

    Anyone make brackets for adding an AC to a 64 R2 Hawk clone?
    Looks like a pretty tight fit!!

    Not that I know of, but you can make your own. I might still have a aftermarket bracket that mounts on the left head if you don't have PS. Studebaker did it on the Packard Hawk using a generator/PS combo unit.
    I'd bet Ray's idea of driving the alternator off the second grove on a Sanborn unit mounted near the compressor would be the simple fix. Here's some info:
