  1. You can use the same rear seal as the GM T 350 or 700 R 4. Lou Cote
  2. The ground strap goes from the top bolt on the adapter (frame) to the front engine mount bolt. Lou Cote
  3. Make sure that you tell them your gauge only reads to 80 psi, the one for the 100 psi gauge will give you a wrong reading. BTDT Lou Cote
  4. As to battery drain, power to the engine computer is on all the time unless battery is disconnected. Lou Cote
  5. In the 2018/2019 roster it is located in Battle Mountain Nevada area. Lou Cote
  6. They are vinyl covered heavy cardboard. there should be 6 screws No. 8 - 15 X 1" .. Lou Cote
  7. What parts of the frame need work? The lower plate may still be available from Dan Booth at Nostalgic Avanti, the rear tubular cross member is available from Don Simmons at Silvertone Exhaust in Ontario Canada. Welcome to the World of Avanti !! Lou Cote
  8. MFG this rearend was picked up from the origional owner, as he swappped it out for a twin trac unit. Back in the 80's I worked at a K Mart auto center, I know the difference between ford an gm brakes did a lot of both. As typical with ford rear wheel cylinders, too rusty and pitted to rebuild. My cost at NAPA less than ten each. Lou
  9. A trip to the, shop shows that the rear shoes are 11 by 2 inch, drums are Kelsey 57973. Backing plates are Bendix 324120 L & R. Brad ???? Lou Cote
  10. The wheel cylinders are ford, I spent a 1/2 hour at O Reileys looking thru hardwear packages, but didn't find a match I will find them. Lou Cote
  11. Does any one have a part number for a rear brake hardwear kit for a 1978 or newer Dana 44 as found in an Avanti? This has the ford 10 inch type of brakes. I tried ordering a set for a Fairmont wagon, from NAPA but they were wrong. Brad, any answers??? Lou Cote
  12. The sender type should match gauge, in other words if the gauge only reads to 60 psi the sender should be the same 60 psi type. Dan Booth has the correct senders. Lou Cote
  13. You may have had the wire wheels or stock rims with wire hubcaps. You can order a build sheet for your car. Check with Dan Booth at 1 800 AVANTI X or 1 800 AVANTI 1 . Lou Cote

    The EGR valve is located on the passenger side of the intake manifold between the carb and the valve cover. It is about 3 inches in diameter, with a single hose going to it. Lou Cote
  15. In order to properly set throttle pressure you need to set it following the book, with a pressure gauge. Had an owner complain, no passing gear. Installed gauge power brake in Drive to 1500 rpm , it only showed 70 psi. It took about 8 turns of the adjusting link ( shorter ) to get it within the 80 to 85 psi. Lou Cote
