  1. Yesterday
  2. I also used the H7137 brake kit for all hardware and springs
  3. The is no "Vapor" return line off any Studebaker filter. It would be a "fuel" return line, which should be restricted to a .045" then it returns to the fuel tank. If you have an aftermarket filter, AND the return line fitting at the fuel pump, then there is your low pressure problems. Also the vacuum metering rod springs might be too weak, and leaning out your engine at steady high vacuum conditions. Often rebuilders "mess " with things and get them out of whack. Also, nobody has mentioned the Prestolite distributor mechanical advance. They are notorious for wear, and sloppy advance resul
  4. I'm not sure if they would be the same, but the rear cylinders on my '78 are W37782 and W37783 from '78 Fairmont w? 10" brakes.
  5. What the wheelwrap a custom or a pre-made like Wheelskin?
  6. Last week
  7. Thanks Brad. I am embarrassed that I had to ask! After posting I found the old rubber and yes, it slid in the extrusion. After I compared the profile of it and the new piece, I saw my error. what is more frustrating is that I ordered a rubber kit for a 78, from one of the major vendors and I got this piece. I’ll check out the other options you listed More cost and more time lost.! thanks for responding Brad
  8. The weatherstrip you ae trying to install in that channel is designed for earlier cars that did not have the metal channel. It is designed to screw directly to the body under the drip rail. The retainer is for later foam extrusions without any metal in them. A good universal weather strip extrusion from Steele or Restoration specialties is far better than the factory early upper door seal. Something like the 70-3680-99 would be a good choice.
  9. tried a search here, couldn't come up with any info. anyone have the numbers for both sides? thank you.
  10. I live just North of Parrish on 301. Send me a list and I will check to see what I have.
  11. I put one of these in mine. Easy to stuff in between the passenger seat and console and removes in a second.

  12. Hey everyone, Just putting up an update here. Been a little busy, but the surging was annoying me so I dived into it a bit more. Looks like the fuel pump is degraded. I hooked up a pressure gauge, was reading 4-4.5 pounds at idle. When it warmed up, pressure reading dropped to around 3. Noticed on the hard acceleration, the pressure dropped down to 1 pound, but would recover back to 3 when the rpms came down. Did a suction pressure test and got around 4-5 inches of vacuum. Shop manual says I should be expecting 5.5-7 pounds on the fuel pressure and about 10 inches of vac
  13. Good answer. 1990s did have cup holders in the rear (in the fold down trays). I didn't remember about the front.
  14. Sorry can't help with adding cup holders in the car, I don't allow any food or drinks in my Convertible. Don't even know where i could make somehting fit.
  15. RQB3263 81/305....Two better pics....no cutting required...
  16. Below is a photo of my 74 (sold) showing another example of covering the frame ends where the CC was mounted. "Correctness" really doesn't matter much with Avanti IIs but to me, this retrofit looked correct and required virtually no modification. This was 20 years ago, but with my 74, I remember using some long bolts and pieces of narrow pipe (which I painted) that worked as a spacer between the frame end and the fog lamp allowing the lamp to mount level. The pipes were a "sleeve" around the bolt. To each their own but I was happy and it took only an hour to install. From the side v
  17. I have purchased a Dorman PN 924-806 to install in my Avanti. It's used in a BMW 525i https://www.amazon.com/Dorman-924-806-Universal-Cup-Holder/dp/B002E3873I Good luck, Jim Wood
  18. Hello, Any recommendation on cup holders to Add?. Anybody satisfied with aftermarket one they used. Saw nothing in search. Suggestions. Bob in Montgomery Texas. Thanks
  19. Bill's idea above is an excellent way to remove it by cutting it off near the grill. If you want it totally gone and return the car to the earlier style (no cowcatcher) you will need to remove it by unbolting it from the frame and pulling it out. You would then need to cut off the rear of the cowcatcher and put it back in place as it also serves as the front body support. The body will also need some repair to replace the fiberglass cut out to add the bumper. You could try to cut the end off the support with it mounted but it's tight right there. So you can see Bill's idea is mu
  20. i have the same channel but the rubber piece I received in my 'Rubber Kit' will not fit into the channel. per the pictures it would appear that it sits on top of the channel. There are 6 holes in both the channel and the rubber but only 5 of them line up! If I am correct then there is a hollow space between the metal channel and the Rubber? unfortunately this is one area a forgot to take a lot of pictures when disassembling! It's been a few years since I disassembled it. I am assuming that when installing on the body the order is: Butyl Rubber caulk, Rain Gutter, Metal Channel, Rub
  21. RQB3263 81/305...... i removed the cow catchers (and all bumpers) years ago and installed 2" round led amber park lights in the remaining cylinders... I also fabed fog light brackets that attach to the side of the cylinder..better pic available on req
  22. I do not believe that it was stated that the number was to short, California was seeking additional reference for its registration and title thus the " A" or "B" being added.
  23. Perhaps someone can make use of these used 1963-64 AVANTI adjustable rear shocks. They are the style of rears that fit original Avanti's after serial #1225. Stude part # 1558550. This pair of original shocks was removed from an 18,000 mile, Wisconsin Avanti many years ago, as part of a "freshening up". In good indoor storage ever since. No leaks, but some rust, as shown. Also, some rubber bushing surface cracks. Being sold "as-is". The price for the pair is $70, plus shipping.

  25. Parts!? I'll be in Indian Rocks Beach starting on the 17th. How do I contact you? John
  26. Stuart I did the same to my 83. Didn’t use a kit, just replaced the backup bulb with an 1157 LED bulb, bought a couple LED lights for backups of the internet, and did a little rewiring. Nostalgic had the red lenses. I figure it doesn’t hurt to have the extra brake lights. Mike
  27. Roy, where are you located? If near either Tampa FL or Crossville TN, I may be able to help with parts, encouragement, and/or expertise.
