  1. Anyone reply to you? I haven't looked at the forum for a while... The 84 wiper should have still been a Studebaker part. Look for a Prestolite Epv 4006 12v Wiper Motor 1964 Chrysler New Yorker Newport 1964 Newport New 4006 Yorker 12v Epv Motor Chrysler Wiper Prestolite
  2. Well, it's time that you looked for all your notes and rewrote them, created a digital file and stored it. Do you know how much info goes down the tube when we "depart the fix"....? ....and that goes for anyone who has anything worthy, valuable, interesting, but not speculation...
  3. Has anyone come up with a mounting design or an actual mounting device, for "under the bumper" road/running lights without having to drill the underside of the bumper. I'm looking at the radiator core support as a base to bolt on some kind of a mount either manufactured or fabricated. thx
  4. 3M adhesive has been proven to work well when applied as directed. There's a YouTube video on this, try it.
  5. Maybe this? http://www.studebaker-info.org/Tech/Brakes/AVLARKBLS/avlarkbls.html That and more at http://www.studebaker-info.org/rjtechdec2017p1g.html#BRAKELIGHTSW
  6. Yaaaa.. similar to mine when new. Isn't that Monterey Green Firemist paint?... with Artichoke vinyl trim?. Lucky for you you have the artichoke seats also. Mine had ... wait for it.... "Tarzan Citron" seat inserts and door panels ( read White & Black Houndstooth cloth) Talk about gaudy.. I'll see if I can find an old pic..
  7. The one thing this time, which needed a lot of contorting was reinstalling the heat shields for the spark plugs. I had removed them to install the manifold, then forgot them until after the new one was in place..#@!**$ A long time ago, I cut one hole in the inner fender to service the #7 spark plug and another to adjust the steering box. The #5 plug could only be accessed by jacking the car up by the center pin, removing the RF wheel and sliding under from the passenger side, reaching up, etc Also...a long time ago... made a couple special tools to tighten the PS pump pressure line and rear mounting nut.
  8. Harder yet was the rear 2 bolts on the exhaust manifold. We should write a book on "The Avanti fixer-upper, what degree of difficulty is?...?"
  9. The three studs are case hardened 3/8X16 rod, brass nuts w/ lock washers. If you have a lift it's fairly easy. On your back, not so, but doable by moving the steering gear (left) out of the way for that one closest to the block and right for the others. Just used an ordinary 9/16 wrench on the inboard one and a long extension socket on the other two.
  10. I just finished installing a pair of 2.5" down port exhaust manifolds and the head pipes were made by Don Simmons.. Awesome quality and fit. pics are with steering at left lock, right lock, then bottom and top
  11. Just like the body... recoloring the Plastic/vinyl/whatever requires a primer before spraying the color. I used the seats from a 98" firebird GT ( with the blowup side supports and lumbar cushion). The plastic bellows & backing on the uprights and the lower seat trim all had to be changed to match the material for the upholstery.
  12. Did you disconnect the battery before removing the wiring? Of all things electrical under the dash, the tach sender is one of the most sensitive.
