  1. Thank you Brad. I called Myers yesterday evening and was told it's an "actuator" and to try cleaning the contacts. Was told it either works or it doesn't. They have them in stock. I'm gonna try cleaning and see if it works any better, if not, new part time.
  2. Good day everyone. I'm looking for any information for the Trunk motor (Pics attached) The switch works great and is getting the correct voltage, but the motor isn't strong enough to open the lid. Any help will greatly appreciated.
  3. Good day Avanti83. Could you please provide the part numbers for the Moog Springs & KGB shocks? I sure would appreciate it.

  4. Thanks John. I'll look into that.
  5. Good day everyone. I'm seeking the rubber that's on the top and bottom of the Leaf Spring, if they're available. Any help will be greatly appreciated.
  6. "I have a set of Delrin bushings in my 83, Hard to tell how much they help with the new Moog springs, KGB shocks and Polyurethane sway bay bushings but it the best handling and riding 80 model years I'v driven in a long time." Could you please provide the part numbers for the Moog Springs & KGB shocks? I sure would appreciate it.
  7. Gentlemen, I called and spoke to Dave about him, possibly, having Polyurethane control arm bushings and he does not have them, nor does he carry them. I have my 83 that needs a total front suspension rebuild, so I'll be utilizing his inventory asap.
  8. Good day. I'm wanting to get information on making my steering tighter on my 83. I've been driving it for a couple of weeks now and it just seems to be "loose". It steers kinda "Floaty" for lack of a better term. I like more of a solid drive feel. Also seems to have a bit of play in the steering also. I know I can tighten or loosen my steering in my 68 C10 cause it's an aftermarket steering box, but is there an adjustment for the ones were using? And which steering box is an 83 using? And, is there an after market box that anyone can recommend? Any help/advice will be greatly appreciated. Thank you
  9. Thanks again for breaking it down Bob. So, with what you stated, should I or Can I go with the production of the 1983's as 187 or 212? I don't mean to nit-pik, but was just wanting to get as accurate as possible. Thank you.
  10. Good day folks. As promised, I would post pics of the manuals and all related that came with my 83 I just bought. I'm not exactly sure if these are highly desirable items or if they're some what normal. Please comment on what you think and if it's "rare" or not. Just for review, I'll leave a pic of RQB-3691. The brown leather pouch is in "like new" condition, but you can barely make out, in the close up, that it came with the "Avanti" logo.
  11. Thanks for your input Bob. Could you please explain further?
  12. Thanks for the info A83.
  13. Good day everyone. I just received my 83 this morning and I couldn't be more ecstatic!! I've been waiting a LONG time for this and I finally own one. I know, I know, I can hear everyone now "Careful what you wish for! (nudge, nudge, wink, wink)" But that's okay, I'm good with it. It's not perfect, but the Frame, Hog throughs and all underneath is solid as a rock and clean. The Body will need attention, but it's never been wrecked or any body type of damage. It will absolutely need a paint job and it will need little things to get it back. It runs fine and I'll have all the fluids changed and do the normal checking of cylinder pressure, plugs and tune up. The interior is in decent shape for a, soon to be, 40 year old car. it will need some TLC as well, but overall I think I bought well. I'm going to post another thread with all the Books and owners manuals and other Original paper work I got with the car too.
  14. Thanks for the welcome Ed. I appreciate it. Got a pic or 2 of your 83?
