  1. I think those are your seat belt mountings. The plates should be threaded or have nuts welded to them
  2. Dave, I made one in Brushed Nickel. Also did the center console inlays. I got the brushed nickel, probably about 18ga, from Menards. It is used for bottom door kick panels. The worst part for me was getting the bend right.
  3. If it is connected to a potted box, Turn on your wipers and see if it acts as a variable speed for them. I have one that does that.
  4. If you haven't found one yet, send me a message. I have a spare
  5. I have 3 different types.

    1 is black, 2" dia with silver lettering

    1 is black, 2" dia with Gold lettering.

    1 is Silver, 2 1/8" with Black Lettering.

    $5 ea and I could just mail them.

    If interested, when I get a new phone I could send pictures. Let me know

      Thanks

  6. I will check today.. I lost me phone and am trying to catch up

    I also have some square Headlight covers and plastic covers..  They are used so might need some polishing.

    You can cal me at 815-477-2066  this is land line as I have not replaced my phone yet.

  7. Are you looking for the black and silver stick-on Avanti emblem? I might have a couple. Let me know if still interested.
  8. John, I have 3 rear bumpers. one is a 63/64 NOS with no holes drilled in it yet. The other 2, I think are the 70's bumpers, but would need re-plating or might be candidates for painting. I am just outside Chicago.
  9. thanks everybody for comments. I have since found out that this control valve will not work without modifications because of the attachment of the Pittman arm. The car is a just completed frame off restoration where all front end parts were replaced including the kingpin bearings and all bushing, springs and shocks. the tire are brand new and balanced. I have checked the steering column RAG joint and it is in good shape. I did rebuild the control valve with the kit available from SI.. The excessive slop is when I am driving but the rest of the ride is smooth with no shimmy or drift. Actually the rest of the ride is phenominal I like IndyJimW suggestion and will see if the slop shows up there. I have checked the steering play down to the steering box and all seemed good.
  10. My 78 has extremely sloppy steering. I have checked the Bellcrank bushings, the tie rods, the Rag joint and tightened the Steering box. My last option i think is the steering valve. I have found a part, I think is a direct replacement, CARDONE 28-6652. It looks exactly the same, has BENDIX stamped on it and the the fitting sizes are 7/16-28 (1), 1/2-20 (2), 5/8-20 (1), It not listed as a replacement for an Avanti (no surprise there) but is listed for various Ford and Mercury 1966- 67 cars. It is a rebuilt part. Has anyone used this part and have any reviews?
  11. Has anyone added a 'Tachometer Filter'? I have a HEI ignition and the Tachometer does not seem to be reading correctly and is jumping. If you have, has it worked and what brand did you use?
  12. i have a bag of them but since my last offering to you on another item and you don't know how to write a check and then never replied back, I'll pass.
  13. I am in the final leg of my 78, body off restoration. I have all of the interior pieces including the floor carpet and the trunk carpet. I even have some of the cardboard backers. I also have all the old nuts and bolts as I replaced everything but those are going to metal scrapper. I can't guarantee that all the pieces are there as some disintegrated and some got ripped uninstalling. But I used them as the templates for my new interior. If anybody wants them, they can have them but they either have to pick up in the Chicago area or pay shipping. Otherwise I will discard them OR I will be in South Bend for the October show/swap, but really don't want to keep them that long
  14. there is an article in the latest issue of the Avanti magazine about sunroof repair
  15. This is for a GM compressor.. look like what you need?
