  1. I do not recommend steel tube type headers, unless you add good insulation to them, because of the added heat in the engine compartment, which an Avanti does not need.
  2. Are you sure that your fuel cap is vented (and working)?
  3. I agree with Bez and add the following; The idea of a vent tube is to let the fumes escape and to let air in as you use fuel. It doesn't matter what bends you put in it. It should exit outside of the car.
  4. Keep in mind that the body on an '89 convertible is different from the body on a '91 convertible.
  5. Instead of replacing the fuse (again), measure the resistance across it. If blown, it will show as an open. I am thinking that you probably have a stop light switch problem.
  6. For starters, do you have a matched set of tires and the proper amount of air pressure in them?
  7. I would not start with anything more viscous than 10W30.
  8. I do not know him, but it appears to me that he is looking for a restored car price for a driver quality car.
  9. You might check with SDC's template collection at the SNM to see if there is a factory template for the proper location. It seems like I remember reading about the proper location, but I do not remember where.
  10. You can start to attend SDC and AOAI meets/activities now. You may get some ideas, parts, encouragement. The SDC Northeast Zone Meet is in Rutland Vermont in August.
  11. You are obviously not referring to the 1963 listed with your name. What model year are you asking about?
  12. Refer to my responses in your other post.
  13. For example, I see a 1964 Avanti (called 1963) currently on eBay that has a good frame, torque boxes, and body with the exception of one spot. The engine is out and needs to be rebuilt, but it is the original R2 from the car.
  14. It sounds like a major undertaking. I wish you luck on getting it finished. I calculate you to now be about 74. I would have suggested that you buy a better Avanti to start with. I know that you plan changes to it, but if the body and frame, including torque boxes, were good, you would be far ahead. Where was the location of your father's dealership?
  15. I believe that RQA 0315 was the first 1970 model. So this would mean that all 1970 models came with the 350. I thought the the early 1970 models came with a 327.
