  1. Your profile does not list your location, I would suggest a vendor near you. you may also want to join an Avanti Chapter nearest you. Dave Thibeault in Maynard Ma., Olympus Avanti in Tennessee, Studebaker International in Indiana, Dan Booth in Wixom Michigan, are some of the vendors. I would also suggest that you get familiar with Bob Johnstone's Studebaker/Avanti web site. Welcome aboard Club Avanti!! Lou Cote
  2. Is there any chance that your car has been fitted with the exhaust system with a crossover pipe toward the rear of the transmission? Just thinking it could be an extra source of heat. Lou Cote
  3. Avanti's never came from the factory with an oil filter in that location. In mid 1962 the full flow block was phased in, with oil filter down low on passenger side of engine. I have worked on Avanti R 1001, with origional engine, the first one that was sold to the public. Lou Cote Avanti Authenticity Chairperson.
  4. The photo shows correct orientation, when i said that the pump is on the right side of the wiper motor as shown in last photo, my answer was from the drivers seat being on the left. The red is the edge of the body at the cowl. Lou
  5. On my 85 the pump is located on the passenger side of the wiper motor, it is a trico pump. mount bolt/screws are accessed from underside of instrument panel. Tube goes thru body into cowl air intake area to squirter assembly. Lou Cote
  6. A 1 Cardone 42 A 1 Cardone 42 - 46 for passenger side, gear kit Dorman 747 - 411 . as i installed on my 85's passenger door. Lou Cote
  7. I have an 85 Touring Coupe, it has only the block mounted fuel pump. You need to replace your old with one that is compatable with alcohol laced gas. with the high mounted fuel tank, any diaphram failure can fill the crankcase with gas. In 2009 I replaced my old pump with Airtex 41378. Lou Cote
  8. Rob, if they are 1/2 - 20 75 - 80 ft. lbs, if they are 3/8 - 24 40 - 45 ft lbs. as found in Avanti Shop Manual section "F" under brakes. Lou Cote
  9. I place jack plus heavy wood block under center steer, jack up and place jackstands under lower a frames near shock mounting point. For the rear, depend if you want rearend up or allowed to full droup. Under spring pads or axle or at frame where x crossmember meets frame. If you put the front stands at the x point you are not supporting the weight of the engine. Lou Cote
  10. Either dexron or ford type F , Napa or other retailers carry or can get. If you are doing a change drain converter ( drain plug) too, clean screen also. Pan gasket same as ford FMX Lou Cote
  11. You can use the same rear seal as the GM T 350 or 700 R 4. Lou Cote
  12. The ground strap goes from the top bolt on the adapter (frame) to the front engine mount bolt. Lou Cote
  13. 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
  14. As to battery drain, power to the engine computer is on all the time unless battery is disconnected. Lou Cote
