  • Engine: Motor Reninstallation - Need PICS

    Hi Everyone!

    I am reinstalling the motor I took out of my 1959 Silver Hawk V8 this week. I have a shop manual and everything but was hoping to ask you guys for a favor.

    I need some high resolutions pictures of the engine bay of this car (or similar variant). Please post or email - mail@shauhin.com any high resolution engine bay shots you have from multiple angles.

    This will undoubtedly help with a quick installation by not having to turn the page on a shop manual every second.

    I also need a detailed picture of where the two front horns mount. I cannot seem to recall and i did not label the location.

    Thanks!

      In your pic, there are two holes behind the side grille openings directly in line where the fender edge/hood opening is. The horns should bolt there. Remember that the engine is offset towards the passenger side mounting holes. Start the mounts on the engine, but leave them loose....lower very slowly and start the lower studs of the mounts in thier prospective holes. This will help align things up a little easier.
      Good to see an engine compartment painted properly instead of GM or Ford flat black! After all these aren't Fords or chevys!!!

                I don't have the pics you require, but if you go to eBay and see the Hawks there with engine pics...that may help....

                  Yea problem is the horns are behind the grills and hard to see how they mount.

                  Can someone confirm if they are mounted upright or upside down? The only way i seem to be able to fit them on right is when they are upside down (meaning the mouting bracket is pointing upward).

                        awesome! thanks..

                        the horns on my car looks different and the mounting bracket only has one hole to mount. i do have two holes in the exact location yours are mounted but they were not where my horns were..

                        anybody with a 59 or 60s hawk?
