  1. 5/8" hose. I also added a 90 Deg elbow Here is a few pictures mounted to my bracket.
  2. try Napa 935813. $17.50 I had to drill a hole to mount to the bracket on my 78 but it is the correct direction for the cable control
  3. Dryer for my 78 was VTA-07321-VUC at Summit Expansion Valve 38608 at 4 Seasons
  4. When I replaced my hog troughs, even though they were galvanized, I used KBS Rust Blast and then Rust Seal inside and out. I then used the KBS Blacktop on the outside surfaces. Since I also was doing a frame off, I also used the Rust Blast, Rust Seal and Blactop on the frame. The Rust Blast is a Phosphoric acid the neutralizes any rust the sand blasting missed. As a suggestion, I used the Satin finish for the Rust Seal and the Gloss for the Top Coat so I could see if I had missed areas when applying the top coat. KBS also has a product called Cavity Coater. It comes with a 36" flexible tube and 360 degree tip in an Aerosol can. You can use inside the frame. I actually think the KBS products are better than the POR 15 products, but that is my opinion.
  5. yes, the Summit part I listed fit the hoses on my 78. Since it is a 'Dryer', It should not be opened up until you are ready to actually recharge the system. When I took the the caps off the fittings, it actually 'hissed' which I assume was a vacuum on the part.
  6. I used VTA-07321-vvc from Summit. It does not have the low pressure switch output but does have a sight glass Of course now you will need to completely evacuate and clean the system before a recharge
  7. I think those are your seat belt mountings. The plates should be threaded or have nuts welded to them
  8. 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.
  9. 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.
  10. If you haven't found one yet, send me a message. I have a spare
  11. 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.

  12. 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.

  13. Are you looking for the black and silver stick-on Avanti emblem? I might have a couple. Let me know if still interested.
  14. 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.
  15. 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.
  16. 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?
  17. 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?
