  1. Hmmm..........I missed this question. I believe there are 14 load springs in a Avanti-era SN-60.

    Avanti Part!

    Front motor mount insulator. I always wondered if the "60" was the durometer measurement of the hardness of the rubber............anyone know?
  3. I always spin the pushrod several times without lifting up on it, then spin some more and slowly lift up. If it feels heavy, STOP and let it down, then spin the pushrod some more, and repeat. I'm sure there are other ways though.
  4. That sounds like way too much, so I'll say FALSE.
  5. Shoot, you got me again Ed! Guess I just wasn't detailed enough this time. Looked at the parts manual wrong...........yes, originally they WERE different, then the R2 changed to the same p/n as the R1. I had mentioned somewhere recently that I can't scan something quickly any more and be sure I'm correct - this is a good example of that. Just getting older.
  6. Look at your parts manual Ed. And yes, ultimately the answer is False (except for those early R1/R2 engines). But the devil is in the details, I've learned to be very detailed with the responses to your Trivia questions.

    Avanti Disco!

    False, they are different, I found that out a number of years ago -- the 3 speed disc is thinner than the 4 speed disc.

    Avanti Stick!

    R1 & R2 engines got Borg & Beck clutches on both the 3 speeds and 4 speeds. I can't tell you what the R3's had.............
  9. They were at first, but early on there was a change and a different p/n was called out for the R2 engines. IIRC, this applied to Avantis and Hawk/Lark JT/JTS engines. Of course, if you got the transistor ignition, that was yet another different coil.
  10. Avanti forward battery hold down bracket, p/n 1351467, fits 1963 Avantis before serial number 4892. Used, but very very little use judging by condition. Rubber coating is not peeling off anywhere, and no acid damage that I can see. See pictures. $10 plus actual USPS shipping cost. PayPal is preferred payment method. Send message via this Forum if interested.
  11. Thanks regnalbob, I see it now. Don't know how I missed that, it's plain as day. Just getting old I guess, I can't scan pages quickly any more.
  12. I have run out of ideas. Looked in service letters, parts manual, and shop manual but have found nothing. 🤣 And now this stupid emoji appeared and I can't get rid of it.
  13. False. The rear cam bearing is fed from a different oil passage than the front four.

    Avanti Oil!

    1000 miles..............
