Where do I find 6 volt acessories and gauges?

Good morning.

Where do I find 6 volt acessories and gauges?

I am looking for a tach, lights, fan, etc.. for my 1950 Studebaker.

Any ideas?

there is a company still making 6v tachs.. lights can be got from Carquest, Napa or any other place that keeps the bulbs behind the counter... www.chevsofthe40s.com sells an electric fan that is 6v

Thank you for the reply

I am most interested in the 6V tach right now, I have purchased bulbs on Ebay- but I probably paid an ignorance fee when I did that.

I found an old Sun 6-Volt tach a few years ago. Put it on my '40 Chev. Guy I bought it from said it came from a stationary unit or tractor.

I have not found the tach I am looking for yet, but I will in time.

I wish I had half of the stuff I threw away in the past right now.
