  1. THERE IS AUDIBLE PISTON SLAP, EXTENSIVE SMOKING I WILL BE DOING A COMPRESSION TEST BEFOR WE PULL OUT AND WE CAN CHECK VALVES, BUT I BELIEVE IT IS A DEEPER ISSUE I BELIEVE WE HAVE 180, 000 MILES ON THE ENGINE AND IT HAS ALWAYS SMOKED.. MUST SAY THAT IT HAS 60 LBS OIL PRESSURE THANKS KEITH
  2. You bring up very good points Here is the path I am going on right now.. I would like to keep the car as close to what it came with. I have to rebuild the engine Tell me more about the Positraction this car has always smoked even though performance has been good, but I am getting piston slap and I am smoking too much now I checked the variety of fuel systems I was thinking of; HOLLEY SNIPER, EFI AND EDELBROCK While these appear to be straight forward the parts and labor probably approaches $3000 I suspect I am into engine for $4500 Transmission could be another $2500 soooooooo 1. I am keeping my standard carburetor for now 2. I am changing the rear end to 3.73 gears 3. I will then test the car to see what I have.. Thanks for the response.... Keith
  3. What year is this avanti That box on the supercharger looks custom Does this car have Air conditioning What did you do about a return line.. How do you get it up to the gas tank behind the seat? I see your fuel pump is on the frame- how many PSI and L/Hr?
  4. My car is a 1963 R1 Avanti with air conditioning We embark on rebuilding the engine….. Anyone with experiences converting the carburetor set up to FI Tech Fuel Injection Anyone who has converted the factory automatic to a 200R4 I would like to know what problems you had, how happy you are with the result For the transmission issue what do you do for the shift linkage in the car as it is no longer 1,2 D it is 1,2,3 D Finally do you change your rear end from 3.31 to 3.73 or other Thanks Keith Keith Jay Wahl MD FACS 8735 Nottingham Place La Jolla California, 92037 858-5182190 email: kwahl@san.rr.com
  5. Jolly-John Pulled out control valve and sent to John Meyers for Exchange (we got the entire system out in 45 minutes) Heater core cleaned and pressure tested.. No Leaks Tested Motor Replaced hoses though not needed Waiting to reassemble.. (Fiberglass did break on the baffle with the vent pull.. We will make a shroud out of aluminum and reassemble Thanks everybody!!
  6. STUDEGARY: I am a fixer. I like the original equipment working. We dismanteled the entire system in 45 minutes. Core was pressure tested and cleaned.. no leaks New control valve ordered from Meyers and core mailed in. New hoses obtained. Tested heater motor, works fine. Should be back together next week Thanks everyone...…...…………... JLBKY - I looked for 3/4 inch t handle ball valves at Ace hardware and could not find I am unclear how the balvalve adjusts the temperature there are 2 hoses into the control valve one in and one out so would you not need 2 ball valves? thanks kjw
  7. Hello Friends: I notice that I am getting a leak in passenger compartment of coolant NOT WHEN DRIVING BUT WHEN I TURN ENGINE OFF It appears to be coming up by the capillary tube near the control valve (I have a radio in the way, need to remove it) WHO HAS TIPS AND TRICKS HOW TO PROCEED AND HOW TO CHECK THE CORE WHAT IS THE INNER DIAMETER OF THE HEATER TUBING...On person suggested putting in Ball Valves at the fire wall.
