  • Speedo/Tach/Gauges: Fuel Gas Temp & Amp

    I would like to replace the gauges with new Stewart Waner gauges. Ar e the originals 2 1/16 inch? And what is the ohms of the fuel gauge? There are many of these out there!

    Does this mean that you have a '56 to '61 Hawk or maybe a '62-'64 GT Hawk?

    Or maybe a '55 President Speedster with 6 Volt Gauges?

        In that case you will have to buy replacement SW or Autometer and paint the stainless bezels Flat Black.

          Mr Cook. I want to replace my gauges too with ones that work. Have you noticed how the stock gauges mount in the dash in those boxes. I have only been able to find gauges that have 1 mounting ring that is the size of the gauge does not work on our dash.
          I have concluded that if I cannot find gauges that match our stock gauges I will have to fabricate something. I have considered the following. cut and drill stock gauge box to hold new gauges. make 2 new boxes out of metal. Make a plywood plate to put behind dash, easy, cheap and would help stop rattles.I will incorporate the turn signal light ( it is attached to a box on either side) some how. I have also considered converting to a volt meter instead of amperes gauge. good luck keep in touch K-hawk

            I am considering replacing the gauges in my 63 Hawk as well. Did you decide on your approach? Any recommendations?
