  1. I took the car to an Autobody shop who fixed the fiberglass cracks on both sides of the hood where the hinges were. and repainted. Came out really nice. Not cheap, but came out nice. Cost about 1500. Thank you to everyone. A83

    Avant shudder.

    I found some loose lug nuts and tightened them up. Took for a test drive and the railroad tie feeling diminished but not gone. When I came back from the test drive, one lug on rear driver side wheel was loose and retightened. Now it seems to vibrate at around 20 miles an hour when I accelerate but shudders noticeably when the car starts to decelerate at around 20 miles an hour. Did not highway test it yet. Any more thoughts? Appreciate any help. A83

    Avant shudder.

    Thank you both - near as I can tell when I put it in neutral and rev the engine while driving the car, it does not happen. Seems to be when I have it in gear (automatic transmission) starts at about 15 mph. Not sensing anything from the suspension. Wondering if drive shaft might also be a possibility in addition to the torque converter. I have been having problems going through several new brake boosters and each one keeps hissing as the current one is / also new brake lines out in recently. Could the brakes be engaging due to the brake booster?

    Brake Booster.

    Thanks I am forwarding this to a performance shop to see if I can get this replicated. That engine compartment looks beautiful. Where did you get the valve covers? A83
  6. Now my 83 Avanti shudders when driving. No problem when I rev the engine in neutral or going in reverse. Only when in gear. It is like I am driving over railroad ties. Sometimes real bad sometimes not as severe but dreadfully noticeable. Any ideas? Thanks A83

    Brake Booster.

    I can't seem to find a brake booster anywhere for my 83 Avanti which now has a 350 ci engine if that makes a difference. Plus I don't have an original to trade in. Does anyone know which one will fit this car? I am going crazy with this. Thanks
  8. Long story but I don't have my original brake booster to trade in. Plus the ones they keep putting in my car from a Buick I think work for a few days and then get that hissing sound and they tell me the seals are shot. Anyone know where I can just purchase one outright that will fit ? Thank you. Kevin
  9. Thank you . Did you clamp it together?
  10. Thank you very much - appreciate your doing this. i am wondering why the Jeep Motor didn't match up .
  11. Oops meant to say Nu Relics so the Jeep motor i bought does not hook up with the regulator gear - I ordered the new relics motor and regulator - will try that
  12. My Relics makes a whole motor regulator kit for 1963-1991 specifically to fit 1963-1993 Avanti with life time warranty
  13. I have a 1983 but it should be the same I would hope - anyone know?
  14. Update - now the mechanic is telling me the Jeep Motor for the power window does not match up to the regulator. Something about the year sizes being different . Any advice? Also, they said they were able to get the power window motor workIng but the regulator is broken. Any place I can get a regulator? Thanks. This is getting frustrating.
  15. Just came back from any auto body shop to get a paint touch up estimate. He noticed the right side hinge was separating from the hood. Any advice on if I need new hinges and if there are hidden bushings or anything? The hood is now off center when closed meaning it fits tight to the body when closed in some places and wide in others. Also when opening, it's loose enough to catch the nose and chip the paint. Any advice on how this should be fixed in case there are any hidden parts I need to get or tell the Auto body guy about would be appreciated. Thanks very much. Kevin
  16. Anyone know who carries a passenger side power window motor for a 1983 Avanti of can I have it rebuilt somewhere. Thanks Kevin
  17. I think I saw answer to this in the past but does anyone know what kind of electric motor is used for the 83 passenger door window. And where I can purchase one? Thank you Kevin
