  1. If you have seen the movie Ford vs Ferrari, you probably noticed a number of Studebakers in the film. While watching the extras on the Blue Ray version I happened to see this in one of the scenes that never made it to the movie. Well, at least they were thinking about us!
  2. Great Picture Avanti83. But naturally I have another question. The clear tape on the top and bottom trim, does it go all the way to the interior side? The picture blows up real good but I can't tell if the tape stops just shy of the trim on the top and bottom stainless. I used string to hold everything together before I got your tape tip. Thanks again, great tip. Dan
  3. Good Tip, I will try it out. In your picture is the stainless already in place and then taped to the rubber and glass? Also do you have the rope in the picture all around the window and then crossed at the bottom? Thanks, Dan
  4. After about 20 hours of pushing and tugging I'm at this point. Left side small amount of weather seal that will not budge (1st Pic) Right side same right where the trim ends. Just a little perspective in the second picture all the black is stuffed into the roof area now and what is visible on both sides is about 2 inches of the material closest to the trim. 3rd pix. I have been pushing on the windshield and got the center part of the roof trim down to about 1/4 inch. The interior pictures are of the right corner and left corner. Gasket is totally inside the interior. And finally, the NEW winds
  5. Brad, that's the crazy part, the interior side of the gasket is 99% in place!
  6. Stand by folks, pictures to follow. This is crazy. I've done this before a couple of times and never had this kind of trouble!
  7. Any helpful tips for a new windshield install will be greatly appreciated. I have it about 98 % in except for about 1/2 inch at the roof stainless trim. Can't seem to push it down. I have even sat on the windshield (240 LBS+) and no luck. Any slippery solutions to ease the gasket in? The gasket is seated all around and is fully in at the interior side. Thanks, Dan
  8. Does any one have a quality (original film) of Floyd Clymer Avanti at Pikes Peak ? I see a 1 minute version on YouTube with very good resolution and I have a a full version of the same film on VHS that is about 17 minutes long that is very poor and broken up. The attached picture is from the YouTube version and is pretty nice. I would like to make available the nice version full length and maybe put in some sound affects too. If have a 17 minute version of the quality of the picture, please let me know, any format acceptable. Thanks, Luma
  9. From Bobs Resource & Information Page are these fine lists of R3 & R4 data. https://www.studebaker-info.org/XLS/R3cars02b.htm https://www.studebaker-info.org/XLS/R34pub41.htm Also reference back to the "3810" pictures, here is a 1964 R1 3589 underside picture.
  10. Thanks, they are great!
  11. Rags63, No difference on the superchargers, but high output pulleys were available as an option. Some Bonneville cars had external coolers also. One more favor if you can carefully take photos of 3810 underside of the base, I would greatly appreciate it. Also where are you located?
  12. Rags63. THANKS A TON for the 3810 shots. They are awesome. If you ever want to sell it, let me know.
  13. Years ago I spoke to Chris Banks from STU-V and if he was involved with your engine build it should be exactly as the paper work indicates. Is there any casting number on the intake manifold? Are the heads on the motor? Can you put the manifold on the engine and see if it looks like it is lining up with the head? As for the carbs, 3810 (no choke?) goes in the front and you could put one of the other carbs in the back spot. It might be a bit rich in the fuel department, but it should run. Can you post some pix of 3810 Carb? Also on the 3725 Carb, is there a spring located on the choke valve to
  14. Over the years I have seen a number of true round headlight 64 (after serial number 4892) Avanti's and have a question for the experts. Did any of these cars have the extra air intake cowl on the left side near the windshield, hood top support on the right side of car and the standard battery size that was used on the square headlight cars? I always thought they built a 64 after August (63) but I think the had leftover 63 bodies that would get all the interior updates and other mechanical features of a true 64 rather then use a round headlight fiberglass nose on a 64 build. Even the Avanti emb

    If I understand your question correctly, the easiest answer is to move the steering wheel off the center notch probably by 1 click on the column. Test it before you tighten the steering wheel back in place. The correct way would be to center all the connections on the steering column from the box, to the rag joint, to the flange and then the column. Make sure your wheels are pointing straight ahead also.
