  1. Hi, Please help. I need to order new 3EE Battery from USA to Finland. Dont find in Europe. Please recommend from where I can order correct 3EE battery from website shop.
  2. I ordered earlier from SI same shorter ones by my mistake. Ordered again correct ones #533296 Didnt want to test how shorter ones will work. From SI web: Part # 800907 "Fit all Models Needing more Eng/Hood Clearance."
  3. Hi, To me looks like there is two way to install distributor. # 1 on the front or on the back like in the files. Am I right?
  4. Hi, I got a clear answer from professional. Old type F trans fluid. No synthetic or any universal oil that works with them all. Must be strictly type F fluid.
  5. Does it matter. Mineral ATF or Synthetic for Paxton? I have Valvoline ATF Synthetic (I think this is not suitable) and I have also Comma ATF AQF Automatic Transmission Fluid which is Type F and mineral and for older cars. I have read many forums and some writes "dont use synthetic" and some wrotes B&M trick shift -brand is best. Some wrote "use any type F".
  6. Thanks mfg. This was very easy to do myself. All I needed was the right size socket and hammer. Heated new bearing in the oven and installed in the assembly.
  7. Do you mean this registeration? https://www.studebaker-info.org/avantix2.html You find the contact. Edit: And, of course, joining the club https://aoai.org/join/
  8. Thank you mfg. Now I understand more: There is a partno 1548810 which is a Clutch Release Bearing Assembly and then there is a Bearing which is National Bearings 1752. The part I ordered from SI was Clutch Release Bearing Assembly (including Bearing) but I got only National Bearings 1752. mfg: I'd say the best way to replace this bearing is with another complete assembly, but perhaps a machine shop could remove your old bearing from the sliding collar and then press on the new Sl bearing? I need to check this.
  9. I have Clutch Release Bearing partno 1548810. You can see it from Parts Catalog and in my photo. The parts has "flange" and spring. I ordered same part 1548810 from SI and got National Bearings 1752. The bearing is just sealed bearing like you see in photo. I think that the Clutch Release Bearing I got is wrong. Still if I try to find Release Bearing for Studebaker Avanti 1963 from Ebay or web, they offer same as National Bearing 1752. I think that the part I need is one assembly part. Is it possible change just bearing from original assembly part?
  10. Thanks mfg.😊 Like 64studeavanti wrote, "I've heard that the Studen's transmissions are basically the same Ansenes as the Corvettes and other cars of the era." I found this. Looks the same as the Avanti -63. https://www.zip-corvette.com/57-58-4-spd-shifter-w-knob.html This is also interesting if you accept anything other than originality. https://www.zip-corvette.com/59-62-4-spd-shifter-w-knob.html
  11. When I saw the photo in Mike Foat's blog, I know where the problem is. In my shifter there is wrong spring + missing some parts. There have to be correct spring + housing + adjusting nut which does not allow the shaft to go thru all levers to the end reverse lever easy. The spring has to work like "progressive" spring which allows shaft to move smoothly between 1-2 and 3-4 and stronger resistance to the end R. Easy to see the whats missing if you look my previous photo and of course Parts Catalogue (pg 80).
  12. Hi, Has anybody used Corvette 59-62 shifter? Including safe reverse. Looks very same 🤔 https://www.ecklerscorvette.com/1959-1962-corvette-shifter-4-speed-transmission-borg-warner-with-white-knob-25-118131-1.html
  13. Thank You Brad. I will contact Mr Dave Thiebault before I do anything. 👍
  14. Thanks 64studeavanti. With your advice I get the correct one. Can I scoose the stick I want like this? https://www.holley.com/products/drivetrain/shifters_components_and_accessories/manual_shifters/parts/3917535
  15. https://www.holley.com/products/drivetrain/shifters_components_and_accessories/shifter_installation_kits/parts/3734734 https://www.holley.com/products/drivetrain/shifters_components_and_accessories/manual_shifters/competition_plus/parts/3917308 Or maybe shorter one for Avanti https://www.holley.com/products/drivetrain/shifters_components_and_accessories/manual_shifters/parts/3917535 Order cheaper combo? https://www.ebay.com/itm/273425011676?epid=1639896002&hash=item3fa96693dc:g:To8AAOSwzo9bgGcN Are these solutions?🤭 I will save and try to repair anyway the original for the future.
  16. Hi! Im not good with T-10 Gearbox and need help. I think I have original 4-speed Gearbox which has letters T10-7B and T10B-1. The gearbox itself seems to work ok, but shifter not. Shifter goes reverse too easy and even possible to put 1 and R same time. Also the shifter seems to be very loose. The spring does not look original to me (even two ones and very loose) I see also that the retainer has been treated badly with screwdriver or something like that. Where to get new shifter parts? Is it even better to buy Hurst Shifter Kit or ...?
  17. Thank you 64studeavanti. Yes. I have authenticity manual and the AOI-magazine where Las Vegas Driveaway Avantis are listed including my #R4543
  18. When both wheels are rotating freely. Both do not turn in the same direction. The other wheel feels lazy or even turns in the opposite direction. Does this mean that the TT differential clutch friction plates are worn and need to be replaced?
  19. I understand this is Twin Track.
  20. Hi, I have a plate which has a text "Twin Traction Axle..." also a plate with T-letter. But there is nothing about TT in my R2 Born report. Reason might be that my car is 99 Tag Las Vegas Driveaway Avanti. Dont know is that the reason. World is fulloff fakes. I like to be sure. In the photo you see without Filling Plug. Wheels dont turn same direction like I tought. Might be that Discs are not in good shape. Is this Twin Traction?
  21. Thanks for clarifying 👍
  22. If the car has air conditioning and / or an automatic transmission, then the automatic and AC loads the engine variably. The Dashpot/Kicker ensures that the engine idle speed changes taking into account the load variation. ( the effect is in automatic, for example, when you come to traffic lights and the revs fall quickly). Thus, the R2 4 Speed without Air Condition does not need a kicker. Are my toughts correct?🤔 Edit: I found this from blog. ://www.carburetor-blog.com/carburetor-dashpot/
  23. Hi James R-3890. I found this from SDC-forum. Read more. https://forum.studebakerdriversclub.com/forum/your-studebaker-forum/tech-talk/34014-avanti-gray-paint Hope this helps. The photo I took is very close reality. Note that Avanti Gray is not pure silver gray (like Mercedes) My opinon is that this one is also correct. In a daylight of course lighter. Photo by Tim Costello.
  24. I'm sorry, but I don't have a color recipe. I bought this car last year. The car was painted more than ten years ago. It is easy to find areas where the original paint is visible and it is 99% the same. I also have an original color scheme that is very similar. You find it here: https://www.ebay.com/itm/174327964936?hash=item2896c1a508:g:XgwAAOSwzvde88Tt
