    Rear Brakes

    Silverstude - yes and I replied within a couple of hours - thanks for the info. My mechanic is checking on NAPA prices to see if those parts are still available and then we'll compare
  2. I went to school in South Bend from '66-'70. I visited the plant a number of times and remember one that was school bus yellow with a black and white zebra striped interior Ed M
  3. Called Nostalgic to get rear brakes for my '81 - #3318. He gets $160 for drums, 11" with the 4-1/2" bolt pattern. Does any one have a source for something that matches?? many thanks Ed M
  4. mfg - you said: "I removed the glass panel, but left the moonroof framework intact to give a bit more support to the 1/8" virgin fiberglass sheet I cut to fit." Does this mean that a flat sheet will conform properly to the shape of the existing roof? Is there a lot of filler to get the shape right? I would like to remove the sunroof, luggage rack and fuel door lock on my '81 . Ed M

    Door keys

    My '81 (RBQ-3318) did not have any door keys when I bought it. To make a locksmith's job easier, is there a record of key codes? What is the blank number? Thanks Ed
  7. Last winter my engine had to come out (1981 - RQB-3318) and my mechanic did not re-install the A/C compressor. It is in a cardboard box in the garage and my bathroom scale says it weighs 44 pounds. This is not all of the weight of the system, but most of it. Could this amount of weight just in front of the axle and a couple of pounds for a cruise control trigger a different spring spec?

    83 - good idea.

    I have a 1981, #3318. Is there a document that shows what all of the dashboard controls are? I have a few that don't appear to be doing anything Thanks Ed

    I have a 1981, #3318, and I need a brake master cylinder, 2 rear wheel cylinders, and rear brake shoes. Is there more information that I need to order them? Are there a couple of your favorite suppliers that you can recommend? Many thanks - I love driving my rural Maryland area these beautiful days Ed
  11. Avanti history seems to be a moving target. He says the Avanti II was first produced in 1982, but my 1981 has a II on the front.
  12. Ted You mentioned that the color was a special order. I visited the factory a number of times in 68-69-70 while going to school in South Bend. They offered any color paint and any interior, and that was carried to extremes on a car I saw - maybe 70? - that was school bus yellow with a black and white zebra striped interior
  13. I went to school in South Bend '66-70 and visited the plant a few times (took me 50 years to get one just last year) and didnl't think there were more then maybe 30 or so that you could see
