    Regulated Avanti!

    I think your stab is right on the money! It seems 'production line' R3 Studebakers, (the nine '64 Avantis and Nels Bove's '64 Commander) did not have a fuel pressure regulator installed.....however....1964 Studebakers that had R3 engines installed at Paxton Products all seem to have that regulator! (An example of that is Nels Bove's '64 Daytona 'HRM' Special) I guess the next question would be ...."Why did the folks at Paxton feel the need to add a fuel pressure regulator to an R3's fuel delivery system"? .......Possibly assumed high-speed usage?

    Compensated Avanti!

    That's it exactly!

    In the interest of performance, ......?...... block 'Mopar' V8 intake manifolds have sometimes been adapted to Studebaker (Avanti) V8 engines. 1) Small........2) Big
  13. For what purpose was 1"X1" steel key stock added to Ron Hall's famous '1963' Studebaker Avanti Bonneville engine?
  14. On R1 and R2 Avanti engines, Studebaker recommended that the hot idle compensator valve be closed when setting.......?.......
  15. Some of the rare R3 engine installs in new 1964 Studebakers used a type of fuel pressure regulator on the engine.....others didn't use this device. Why is this?
