  • Cool/Heat: Hawk Lower Hose

    Has anybody tried using this hose? It says compare to original and cut to fit but not on bell end. I haven't cut it yet but it hits the frame and puts a kink in the hose. Also no spring inside. Listed as HSE095 by vendors.

    I tried one of those hoses on my 62 Hawk and I couldn't make it fit so I sent it back. As far as I know an original type hose is NLA. Bud

      None of the Studebaker vendors have the right one? I would think that somebody would get them made up.

        I cant believe that after I bought one of them 11 years ago that some people are still selling them. They don't fit. I bought a universal fit Gates from AZone. cheers jimmijim

          Yup, I bought that hose and installed it on my Hawk and it had a kink and hit the frame. I ended up having to cut off part of the bell part and it was a real bear getting it back on. It works now though!

              I hate parts that are sold without telling the buyer that they don't fit - Went thru' that w/ "GT" door script and "C" pillar flying buzzard.

                I would not be too quick to blame the hose if it doesn't fit. I am a Studebaker parts dealer and I have sold HSE095 over the years. I can't quite judge by the picture of the hose in question, but I do know that the HSE095 hose fit has been improved in the more recently run batches, and that looks like an earlier one. This hose fits '61 -'64 Hawks. I recently sold one to a customer with a '61 Hawk. The first thing I hear is "You sold me the wrong hose!" (Always my fault, of course.)
                Then I find out he replaced his radiator, and it turned out to be a '59 - '60 radiator. On these, the lower outlet is moved maybe a couple of inches toward center compared to the '61 - '64 outlet. So I traded him a '53 - '60 lower hose and it fit.
                At any rate, the currently available HSE095 hoses are a very correct fit for '61 -'64 Hawks, providing you have the correct radiator.

                  I don't know if this would help, but I had a sale from JohnnyLaw in my inbox that included a universal Stainless Steel Radiator Hose for $29.00

                    Looks like a pretty much Mickey Mouse adapter and fit, IF it fits Phil.

                      That is very valuable info about the differences in the radiators, thanks for sharing!

                        The correctly curved 1961-66 Sedan and Hawk V8 radiator hoses are available from various dealers in Australia including ours. These are a correct match to the original shaped hoses.

                          Most of our USA Stude. Vendor hoses come from Australia, so I am betting they are the same as sold in Australia.

                            I can guarantee you they are not! I have seen the US supplied hoses, even had some here which I later threw in the trash. The Australian made hoses being supplied by S.I. and various others are sometimes made by the same company but they are not the same hose. The correct hoses are available and have been for many years. I cant understand why they are not stocked. The only reason I can think of is cost but I would rather pay $40 for the correct hose than $20 for something that just doesn't look right.

                              Had same problem w/ the lower hose ('63 Hawk). Ended up taking the seriously cut-up/modified hose (used as example for length and opening size) to the parts store and getting a Gates universal that would duplicate what was left of the modified hose.
