  1. Just saw this on the SDC Forum ( don't really know if it applies) https://shop.advanceautoparts.com/find/avanti-tail-light-assembly.c9668
  2. I had mine off the chassis, supported by four corners at the ends of the hog troughs. The seats were out and door panels off, but the glass and rest of the interior were still in. It was about 4 feet off the floor, sitting on two 6X6 timbers with a piece of carpet on each. I know I bumped into it occasionally while working on the chassis and it would move an inch or so. You could even lift the nose with some effort. I'd estimate it around 700#
  3. Here's a section from the story of R-1384 - Has and LS engine and both trucks from a C4 'https://studebaker-info.org/AVDB1/R1000/63R1384/63R1384x1110/63r1384x1110.html
  4. I just received word that R-1165, R-1191 and a third body ( unknown tag) were all completely lost to the fires in the Santa Cruz mountains....
  5. Those tubes in the cowl should be raised off the floor an inch or so. They should also have "hats" over them that prevent water from getting into the area behind the dash, which would be disastrous. Any water entering the cowl runs off to the left or right and down the chute in the kick panel into the hog troughs. The cooling tubes are approx 1.5" ID and run from the underside of the cowl, down behind the A/C area and terminate in front of the shifter area to play cool air on the metal parts. They do help. Don't use corrugated tubing ( vacuum cleaner type) The smoother the inside
  6. I'd think that black female (likely +12) goes to the spade on the thermocouple, since that has to sense the temp which turns on/off the compressor. The fan switch below may have it's own power source, but it appears that the thermocouple has a short jumper to the white rheostat.
  7. Get or make a couple flat, tapered pointy tools from a hardwood. Carve down some wooden spoons, etc. You can work the gasket over the flange using these types of tools and it won't hurt the gasket. I put both the front and rear glass in, using this type of assist.
  8. X braced reinforcement
  9. Bending any pipe is a breeze.. Just fill it with fine sand, tamp it in, tape off the ends and you could even use a pegboard with nails to get some tight curves....
  10. there was a 56A and 56B
