  1. It seems that this subject has been discussed many numerous times in the forum. For the life of me, I can never descramble the numerous points of view and opinion. My 1964 Studebaker Avanti R1 has and will always have the original front disc brakes. I’m contemplating switching out my stock steel wheels for A set of chrome alloy wheels. Will the 15” wheels with the following specifications work on the stock Studebaker Avanti with OEM disc brakes? Thanks Y’all in advance! Robert
  2. Maybe you just answered your own question! Did you install dynamat over the kick panels, blocking the air from coming in through the vents?
  3. Dan is always ready to walk one through the process. I would call him and ask for guidance. I posted my response without looking at you location! The instructions say to bypass the resistor It looks like anything above 1900 degrees no springs are used. Hopefully someone that has done the upgrade will respond
  4. I realize that this is an old thread! To me, it appears to be a Turner brake conversion. From what I can see, it is installed improperly. From what I think I understand, is in the turner conversion the caliper should be mounted in a rear position of the rotor. This looks to be positioned forward on the rotor. This could well be why the OP had issues withthebrakes rubbing the suspension.
  5. Dwight, They look good in the pictures. Are you able to ship them? I would like them both if we can work out a price for the wheels and shipping them. Thanks Robert
  6. I appreciate it. Let me know when you can! Thanks Again Robert
  7. Dwight, Yes, I would like to keep with all OEM Studebaker Avanti wheels. I have one the got buggered up on the inside and I would feel better if I just replaced it. I would be interested in getting one or two from you. Thanks Robert
  8. I recently had a mechanical mishap and scarred the inside of my wheel. Does someone have a lead on where I can get a replacement. Preferably OEM original. Thank you
  9. I’m have zero knowledge of the speedo and there is nothing on the web. I have 2 160 MPH and both are seized solid. I wouldn't’ know the first thing about getting them to move, short of a super large hammer. A pro would hopefully have the needed parts to get them working.
  10. Y’all have been fantastic!!!! Super quick to help with great information. It appears that this is a numbers matching 1963 Studebaker Avanti R2. All of this information gets me closer to striking a deal on the 4th Avanti for my collection. I really appreciate your help. Robert
  11. Okay, The block serial number is RS 1695 the supercharger is MS 2160
  12. I posted this question on the SDC forum because it’s for my 1963 Studebaker GT Hawk R1, but received no replies, so I thought I’d try here. The 160 MPH speedo in my GT Hawk is frozen solid. I removed it from the dash and on closer inspection the black paint around the ring under the glass is flaking off. Because of this I have decided to send it out for a complete rebuild. Somebody has surely dealt with this issue. I am seeking recommendations for how to rebuild it or where to send it for a quality job. Thanks for all you do Robert
  13. I really appreciate the pictures and information! Thank you
  14. Leo, Where is the filling hole in the original that you posted to compare, under the label? I was told the one that I posted had a tapered plug that’s in one of the boxes of parts in the car. I don’t see a fill hole in any pictures I find.
