Engine pics/information


Recommended Posts

Hi this is my first post here. My mom has a 1963 Avanti. I am currently bulding a model of it as a birthday present for her. I want to make it pretty detailed, but I can't go over there and start looking under the hood, or she might get suspicious (it is a surprise after all). Does anyone have some good pics of the Avanti engine? Mainly I want to see how the overflow tank is plumbed. I know that a hose comes from the radiator to the front of the tank, but does the overflow tank have a hose that runs to the engine, and if so where? Also how/where are the heater core hoses routed.

Any help is greatly appeciated!

Unfortunately I can't locate many photos of R1 engines on the net, and I don't currently own a Stude Avanti nor did mine have the stock engine.

On the 63 Avanti there is a short vertical pipe coming down from under the right rear corner of the tank that bolts to the thermostat flange on the intake manifold of the engine (eg, there is no thermostat housing, the tank pipe takes it's place); the pipe is only a couple of inches long and is an integral part of the tank. The tank goes cross-wise atop the front of the engine, with it's right end about lining up with the center of the engine, I believe.

The hose from the left corner of the radiator is an "S" shaped hose to offset toward the center of the engine.

You didn't say which engine your Mom's car has; if the car has air conditioning, or if you know the car does not have a supercharger, it undoubtedly has an R1 engine, which has a 4-barrel with a large round chrome air cleaner.

Thanks a lot guys for the pics. That helps a lot. My moms car is an R1, no A/C. It is turquoise with a turqoise and fawn interior.

From the pics it looks like one of the heater core hoses goes to the intake manifold. And it appears like the other goes to the water pump maybe?

Both heater hoses go to the water manifold on the front of the engine that the water pump bolts to. There are no water passages through the intake manifold.
