  1. Nice! What would be the benefit of this plastic cover?
  2. I've got this one, fits great. It is older but probably available:
  3. I'll put G11 in it then, after flushing the complete system with water. Thanks for the confirmation! PS: Glycerol + 20% H2O = glicerine https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Glycerol
  4. So, up to 12++ would be safe as these are made of Glycol. G13 is made of Glycerol. Is that the difference?
  5. The expansion tank keeps leaking, each time in a new location. Now I think I have discovered what the problem is: there is G13 coolant in my Avanti. That appears to affect lead (in the solder)! What coolant do you use; G11 or G12?
  6. My 1969 Avanti 350 engine has engine code V0830 8BQ or 3BQ, I can't tell from the picture. But, still do not know what 8 or 3BQ stands for.
  7. My guess is that the windshield seal is leaking.
  8. Now i do uderstand what a dashpot does! I would like to have one on my Avanti II with a Chevy 350. @Gunslingerstates Edelbrock sells dashpots. I'm going to look for one!
  9. My English is not great. Could you please explain what a dashpot is?
  10. I disagree as the top of the ventilation hose is much higher than the filler opening. So, the excess of fuel would pour out the filler opening. The hose is there for ventilation. Even the parts catalog states "0307-18 HOSE, gas tank vent".
  11. A pillars? Seems most likely although they are "good".
  12. Were did you buy those? I am looking for covers myself two but can't find a supplier.
  13. I did it with regular engine oil. Just brushed it in with a toothbrush. Worked well but if I would do it again I would use this mixture.
  14. There is no easy way. I have big hands and could do it without removing the dash. I would never go for LED. To bright for me. I think that in to 60's, the world was darker and the dash light was bright enough. Now we have streetlights, the dash needs more light. Well, I refuse and go for the old bulbs.
