    Eighth R3!

    Are you talking about R5642 which supposedly had some sort of rear axle upgrade?

    Last "A"!

  3. Was it the 'prototype' R4130?

    Avanti AFB!

    .........the airflow (and thus the fuel flow) in the secondary side of the carb to come in later (ie, at a higher engine rpm).
  5. Seems like he arrived a month after the December board meeting, so I'll say January.

    Meek Avanti!

    Wish I could say it's sitting in my basement 😲........but unfortunately, no idea.

    Meek Avanti!

    I couldn't remember if they were the ones that swapped the R4 for the big Olds V8 or not. Unfortunately I don't have a copy of that Peterson engine swap book. In my avatar, that is a crop of one of the photos from the Peterson engine swap book, showing the R4 sitting next to the Avanti.

    Meek Avanti!

    Didn't they do engine swaps into Avantis.........putting higher horsepower non-Studebaker engines into them?
  9. Cool video Ed! For others to view, here is the direct link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Bbv2FlMc7eU So.........is this YOUR Avanti now?? 😛
  10. Merry Christmas to all the Avanti Trivia participants!! Anyone get a 'new-to-them' Avanti for Christmas?
  11. False, the hot idle compensator opens when the engine is hot. On a cold engine, it should be closed.

    Cored Avanti!

    I'm going to say that for the 400s in the era you specify, #2 is correct -- 3 core plugs per side for a total of six. The disclaimer is that I am not a Chevy engine expert, but did help friends with their Chevys 'back in the day'.

    Duntov Avanti!

    The steering wheel had Duntov's signature on it. (Honestly, I have never figured out WHY his signature was put on these steering wheels, unless it had some correlation to the engine used in these cars.......❓
