  1. This fall, when my son with mechanical aptitude came to visit from London, we worked on odds and ends on our 1963/64 Avanti R1 . One of the items we addressed was a non working gas gauge. After testing grounds, etc. it was determined that the culprit must be the sending unit. After removing the rear seat and back, we removed the rear panel exposing the gas tank. From there, we removed the sending unit and found the cork float functioned properly, so we put the unit in an ultrasonic cleaner for the evening . After drying the unit the next day, electrical checks indicated it now functioned
  2. Avanti 83, thanks. I had not considered just sliding a couple of clips to the end of the chrome strip. I see in the pictures above that there are 10-12 clips for each strip. Someday, in the spring when my unheated barn is warm, I'll try to remove the door panel and check it out. I have electric windows which work fine, but are really sluggish in cold weather. I have thought of lubricating the mechanism to make the window work easier, so that would be a perfect time. I really enjoy the help and information on this Forum.
  3. Avanti 83, can you show the fasteners that you used to attach the lower horizontal chrome strip ? I have one end that is slightly loose, but don't want to use a screw to reattach it.
  4. Fuel gauge did not register. Electrical checking pointed to a bad tank sender. Float was ok, so I put the sender in an ultrasonic cleaner. After a very hot water washing out, and a blow dry with compressed air, the sender worked fine. Obvious crud came off in the ultrasonic.
