  • 4 speed clutch support

    Putting a 4spd in a 60 hawk
    I need part# 1539391. Does anyone have one of these lying around?
    I know that I might be able to build it but just thought I would check with you guy first. It would be nice to save me a couple more hours for something else.
    Thanks

    If that part number is what I think it is, it might be easier to build one from a 3-speed bracket. Unfortunately, unless you have a good eye, you're going to have to have one to copy the bracket part from, and there'll be welding involved...

      Right now, I have a 7 blade fan from a GTO (I think?) mounted on a repro non-thermostatic fan clutch. Can't say how well it works, but I didn't have any problems before with a 5-blader. Just wanted some insurance with the added power of the R1. I'd prefer to use the stock clutch but it is ever so slightly wobbly, and I didn't want to run the risk of messing up my radiator, hood, or other. I found a guy online that says he does show quality rebuilds of the old fan clutches for GM's and Fords so I figured he could fix me up, but he never returned my email. Oh well...

      The reason I'd like to have my stock clutch rebuilt is that it is thermostatically controlled; that is, the fan isn't robbing power from the engine when it's not necessary. There are thermostatically controlled fan clutches available new, but from what I'm told, none of them have enough meat on the flange to machine out the recess for the large Studebaker water pump nose.

      Anyway, the point I was originally going to post and make is that the WP pulley on my car is rather small appearing, and I know it came off of a 63V with A/C. However, I have no idea if it is actually correct or not. So the worst that would happen with a *larger* pulley is that your water pump and fan would run a little slow.

        I show one in our inventory list but I would have to physically make sure we still have it in the morning if you are interested. Your cost $40.00 + $5.00 freight.

          Wow, not sure how that happened... that second post was supposed to go in the "viscous drive fan" thread. Probably makes a lost more sense there.
