  1. I have purchased a Dorman PN 924-806 to install in my Avanti. It's used in a BMW 525i https://www.amazon.com/Dorman-924-806-Universal-Cup-Holder/dp/B002E3873I Good luck, Jim Wood
  2. AC Delco radiator cap for a 1982 305 engine is a RC27 16 lb cap. Good luck, Jim Wood
  3. All the brochures and flyers came with my Avanti when I purchased it from the previous owner. The Eagle Ottawa Leather company is still in business. Good luck, Jim Wood
  4. Good find! NAPA 2-29031 crosses to AC Delco 212-72 Standard Ignition PVS48 Good luck, Jim Wood
  5. JensenHealey; Sorry , I get in mechanic mode and don't explain what I'm looking at well. GM used fusible links to protect the main wires supplying multiple devices. Today everyone uses MAXI fuses. These type of fuse are slow to blow, unlike the fuses in the fuse block. Fusible links rarely blow, I've only replaced a handful in 45 years. Yours is blown, you can tell it was hot because the red end is pinkish in color. This can happen one of two ways. Corrosion got to the wires, broke enough wire strands and the fuse overheated. OR too much current melted the outer wire casing and c
  6. Is the fuse bad? It is a 16 gauge fusible link, you can get them at any auto parts store. https://shop.advanceautoparts.com/p/dorman-conduct-tite-16-gauge-gm-fusible-link-wire-carded-85621/22141316-p?c3ch=PLA&c3nid=22141316-P&adtype=&product_channel=Online&store_code=&gclid=c46e972d0f731595731bf703cfcc9449&gclsrc=3p.ds&msclkid=c46e972d0f731595731bf703cfcc9449&utm_source=bing&utm_medium=cpc&utm_campaign=b_lia_all_dorman%2Fretail%2Fbody_electrical_terminals%2Fconnectors_review_all_rmktg_aap_us_all&utm_term=4581183924589470&utm_content=Bin
  7. Yes, it should be marked on the wire coating. New links are available from most auto parts stores, but since you have to wire it in, I usually just wire in a fuse holder. Good luck, Jim Wood
  8. The fusible link in basically a piece of wire that is a smaller gauge then the regular wire, so it melts first. You should see a burnt spot in the wire in the first six inches coming off of the starter solenoid. You can grab and pull the wire and it will separate at the blown area of wire. Good luck, Jim Wood
  9. The firewall plug usually has a captured bolt in the center of the outside plug that clamps the plug halves together. The outside of the plug should be clipped to the body. The inside part of the plug should release when you loosen the bolt. My firewall plug is located between the wiper motor and the washer tank. Good luck, Jim Wood
  10. The wiring diagram that I posted shows Power Distribution on pages 2-4. There are 3 fusible links on the starter supplying power to the ignition switch and fuse block. Check for blown links or corroded wires at the plug going thru the firewall. If it is like my Avanti the problem is before the fuse block not from the fuse block. Good luck, Jim Wood
  11. Had it made from the 1987 Amoco Avanti flyer. I’ve scanned it on the 1984-91 forum. Good luck, Jim Wood
  12. I'm going to use it in my hobby room to cover a bi-fold door, that's why the two frames. The left side is the back of the flyer and the right side the front. There is still a noticeable crease down the center of the poster from where the flyer has been folder for 24 years. I may try to repair the scan in Photo Shop and remove the titles, that would make a great poster. But for now it serves my purposes. Good luck, Jim Wood
  13. Just received my poster in the mail. I send my scan of the Amoco Oil flyer in and the poster company enlarged it to 36x48 and printed it on canvas. Looks better then the original scan. Still has a crease down the middle, but that's OK as I am going to cut it down the center and mount it in two frames. Good luck, Jim Wood
  14. If all else fails, I was able to find my switch from the casting numbers in the switch. My local auto electrical shop was able to cross it for me. Good luck, Jim Wood
