    Champion H14Y or equevalent is what is recommended., the number may have changed on the box but it will still be a H14Y.

      The Champion number changed at least 20 years ago. You now want to use an RH18Y. Parts stores will most likely go by the 'stock number' 857.

        I have had very good service from Autolite 437s. You might want to review one of the earlier threads on this subject. See http://www.studebakerdriversclub.com...s=Autolite,437

          One easy thing to do next time your heads are off...
          Have the plug seat lowered about .06" to "properly", accept early (or even tapered seat) GM spark plugs. Then you have many...many plugs to choose from...and every Tom, Dick & Harry parts store has them....in stock.

            A trip to town today found no Champion # 857 Autozone doesn't carry, Shucks 14 or more days away. Cooper Industries which ownes Champion and also absorbed the last parts of the Studebaker Corp. How come there are no Champion plugs for my 62 Hawk readily available???? Lou Cote

              I just checked Schucks on-line. I asked for plugs for a GT Hawk and they list the 857 (RH18Y) and the Autolight 437. The Champions are twice as much as the Autolites. Both say 'ships in 1 day'. I've bought from them on-line before. You pick your parts up at the nearest store.
