  1. TCP Global may be a good resource. They have an extensive library of colors and can provide acrylic lacquer.
  2. If they are indeed the bendix/dunlop you can purchase new sumitomo calipers from parts geek for around $80 each. They are labeled for Nissan. There are the correct 2 1/8. I believe larger 2 1/4 are also available that will fit into the caliper brackets. Look for 64 Jag XKE.
  3. 2) North American Rockwell. I have replacement door with a tag in it.
  4. I just looked up R5361. According to Fred Fox, it was also the first Avanti to be painted maroon.
  5. I thought this serial number sounded familiar. I made a post with pictures on May 14, 2015.
  6. That should be a 64 model engine built August 7, 1963. The 64 model engines used a different serial number scheme. The H indicates August, Followed by year, followed by day of month.
  7. If this is the correct change, they also reinforced both the seat bottom and back. A piece of molded foam was added under the upholstery for the sest back. At least that is how R5403 was built.
  8. How about the change to the thick seat backs?
  9. Finally had a chance to check parts book. My memory was faulty. The correct part number is 1568111 Fan blades (7 blade-17") special order. The 1560547 is for the 14" 5 blade fan for R3, R4.
  10. Just thinking out loud, but is it possible to assemble the fan blade backwards? I am about 1,000 miles from my cars and cannot check.
  11. I agree the 6 blade fan is loud. I changed back to original 5 blade and still had loud. Finally, after changing both the clutch and different 5 blade fan, the noise is substantially abated. Can you spin the fan with the motor off? The fan should rotate a couple of turns before stopping. If not, usually bad clutch (locked up). Did you try a known good clutch and fan blade? The one that came with my 64 looked OK. However it was not until I put on another that the noise went away. I believe there was a 7 blade fan available. I have one, but have not tried it yet as my fan
  12. If you have the pulley mentioned in the service letter, it would be 2 groove aluminum. Otherwise, you would have the standard 3 groove cast iron pulley.
  13. When I go to the SDC forum, I get what looks like Chinese. This started early in the morning. Has the site been hacked? Is the webmaster aware? Update: I sent email to the SDC forum webmaster.
