  1. FWIW, picture of correct rag joint with horn jumper.
  2. Pictures of 78 Avanti Spring spacer. The Studebaker Spring coils are flattened on the ends. IIRC, the 78 coils were round.
  3. One on each side. I have a spare set. I will post pictures later this morning.
  4. My 78 has two aluminum spacers on the bottom of the springs. They are about 1/2". I did not have any rubber spacers. I do not know for sure if this is factory.
  5. Just to ask the obvious, did you check trans fluid level?
  6. Am interested in purchasing most of your parts. Please contact me at ckrewer@verizon.net
  7. I live close by in Wimauma FL, near Tampa. Would be very interested in stopping by. Currently in NJ at son's house for new grand child. Should be home in a week or so. Am interested In most of what you have. Email is ckrewer@verizon.net.
  8. Jerry, Did not get message with contact info. Please send again. Thanks
  9. Where do you live? Would like to swing by and purchase some items if not to far away.
  10. The shims for axle end play go between the axle and backing plate. There is a reinforcement that goes on the front of the backing plate. Then the dust seal. There are gaskets on either side of the reinforcement. IIRC, the shims for axle end play go on the passenger side according to shop manual. Make sure the bearing races are seating correctly. Additionally, if you removed/replaced bearings, maybe the bearings are not fully seated on the axle.
  11. I wonder how many people know how to siphon gas any more.
  12. If the crank is bad, why replace the block?
  13. Inquiring minds want to know. Does the Mopar B body booster fit Studebaker Avanti? Anyone have a definitive answer?
  14. The one I have is approx 17 1/4 x 36 3/4. I did not remove the aluminum frame so the glass is likely a little shorter in both dimensions.
  15. I have Dana 44 from a 63 I am parting out that you can have if you are willing to remove. I believe it is 3.31 ratio. I live just south of Tampa.
  16. Don't know if this is what you are looking for, but for engines after number R1220 and RS1259, there was a second type introduced. The second type had some bushings and a sleeve. I assume it was to solve the rattle issue.
  17. This bit of info came from an answer to a trivia question on this forum. FWIW, the poster goes by lschuc and confirmed by mfg. https://aoai.org/forums/topic/5202-avanti-daytona/ In any case, it is good to know that we do not need to spend a lot of money getting the Avanti boosters rebuilt.
  18. Where are you located? I am parting out a 78 that has the sun roof.
  19. Sounds like good progress. Just be aware of scope creep. After all, you only have 2 months to work on it.
  20. If the rear crossmember is the tubular piece that goes under the spare wheel well, that is readily available from several vendors. Can be welded in place without removing body from frame.
  21. Avantiparts.biz is showing bulk dinoc.
  22. I have removed bodies from 3 cars, 2 Studebaker Avantis and a Speedster. Was not very difficult, however, I have 2 post lift. Just curious, why do you want/need to remove body?
