  1. RQB3263 81/305 AVANTI II.... I installed the quick arms about 2 yrs ago....2 hr job ....i used an air hammer (actually an aircraft rivet gun) to knock them loose. installed the new ones with anti-seze...yes they do make steering quicker....thats just geometry....but you will get used to it and not even feel the difference after a mile ....worth while.....have fun.....BILL IN FLORIDA
  2. RQB3263 81/305 First check the module out put....easy ....use a plastic handle screwdriver and check for spark at two or more spark plugs.... no spark its probably the module.....remove the old one and match it up......i did it many times a couple on roadside until i bought an OEM module and carry spares now.... see previous pic.....good luck.....BILL

WELL LETS PRAY FOR 2021......SOMEWHERE in this forum we discussed replacing the original bucket seats ....and i did about 5 yrs ago......with BMW 330SC gray leather.... they looked good and were very comfortable....but at 5'9" i had inadequate head and belly room...I lived with it this way all this time....until now....I located locally a set of very good condition, black seats from a 2008 Saturn Sky for $214 OTD...only minor modifications to the seats were required and about a full 8 hrs to install...and more work on the aluminum attach plate I fabed 5 years ago for

  12. RQB3263/81/305.... I also have had GM powered cars/hot rods/Avanti....do the shut off thing.... I found the IGN module to be the problem....aftermarket modules are a piece of crap... I went thru 3 of them... .I had one last exactly one mile..... i purchased several OEM GM modules and now carry spares and tools...itsa 5 minute job to replace them....the OEM ones are only available thru GM dealer or in my case Ebay.....I bought a dozen...... they also fit aftermarket distributors used on Ford 289/302 v8...... however if you have added electrical components (H4 Halogen headlights) the thermal c
  13. RQB 3263 /81/305.....I replaced my electronic q-jet with a re-man NON electric q-jet from National Carb in Jacksonville, fl but any overhauler can build you one...... obviously a direct bolt on and one wire hook up to choke ...very good phone assistance with a minor internal adjustment and it works fine now for 3+ years.... and then you can remove all the BS wiring associate with the orig. q-jet....works fine for me .....BILL
  14. Tire size on RQB 3263 is P205/60R16.......
