  1. Hello Leo, I purchased an SN60 from Nimesh Solanki (he goes by Mike). It was totally rebuilt looks new and runs great. Mike is located in Georgia and he sells some Stude blower parts on Ebay under "nimesh". He is good to deal with and does a quality rebuild. He may be able to help you. You can contact him through Ebay or you can PM me on the forum or call me @ 812-229-5915 and I can give you his phone number. Good Luck with the car. John C.
  2. Thanks Kodjo for the cleaning information I can see it makes a big difference. I plan on taking the gauges apart so this will help. I have already drilled two holes (gauge diameter) in apiece of 3/4inch oak to set on my bench and help hold the gauges while you work the rings off. I'll give your method a try and see what the result is. Wish me luck. Thanks, John C.
  3. Hello everyone, The instrument lighting on my 63 has always left a lot to be desired. At night I can barely read any gauges with the stock bulbs. I have experimented with red and white LED bulbs and don't feel they made a marked improvement. I wondered if anyone had tried repainting the reflective coating on the inside of the gauges,what the result was, and where I could find a supplier for that type of paint? My next question concerns the front and rear crankshaft seals. What is the best type to use and where are they available? I'm sure some of you have dealt with these items before and just what you had good luck with. Thanks for the input, John C.
  4. Hello Norm, A fiend of mine used to repair C1 Corvette steering wheels and they looked new when done. They would commonly break where the spoke met the rim. He would cut the plastic away from the rim with a hacksaw then clean the broken area, and TIG weld it back together. He then used PC7 Epoxy to fill and reshape the area, file and sand it to its original contour. Then it was painted to the desired color. He did dozens of them and never had any issues. Many of them went on award winning cars. It will take some work but it is very doable. Good luck and I hope this helps, John C.
  5. Thanks to everyone for your thoughts on the subject. Perhaps I should have added a little more information in the beginning. The car Is a 63 and it has a 7/8 inch sway bar on the front and a stock 5/8 inch bar on the rear. From the input I have seen I think I will install a heavier rear bar and possibly some performance shocks before I go to the quick steer arms. Does anyone know who can supply the heavier rear sway bars? Thanks John C.
  6. Hello all, I am considering installing the quick steer arms on my Avanti. It currently has stock power steering and I think it feels a little over compensated. My question is are the quick arms shorter than stock and if so about how much? I'm sure many others have installed them, could you tell me your thoughts on how it affects the steering. Thanks for your input, John C
  7. If memory serves me well the working time was longer than stated on the product, and that was a plus. Be sure to get any glaze off of the glass, keep it clean and I think you will be very happy. Good luck with your project, John C.
  8. I used Evercoat In 1984 on my 62 Vette. I glued the lower nose on, a few bonding strips and repairs. I still drive the car regularly it has lacquer paint and no cracks or issues of any kind. Highly recommended. John C.
  9. Good advice, I just replaced all of mine in that neighborhood last fall. I was installing an electric booster pump and the old ones did not look well.
  10. Maybe we all learned a little something, self included!

  12. Hi Folks, I am in need of a 3588s carb base and an R2 air filter housing. The base I have has been destroyed by electrolysis and the breather is long gone on this car. I am a serious buyer if anyone has a lead on these parts. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks, John C.
  13. I just wanted to compliment you on the beautiful work Ingenuity. Thanks for taking the time to share it with everyone. And I do love those wheels! Thanks again, John C.
