  1. The switch should be accessible without removing the column. It requires some contortion to get under and work on it. The parts are readily available. The switch rod may fall out once the electrical assembly is off (tape it onto the column, once the switch is off)
  2. What would be the source of a mount to accomplish this?/ thx
  3. Looking to contact the owner who advertised this car on B-A-T https://bringatrailer.com/listing/1963-studebaker-avanti-24/#comment-5331908 Would anyone reading this, know who it is?
  4. I've seen this a few years ago and now it's for sale https://www.autotrader.ca/a/avanti%20ii/r/winnipeg/manitoba/19_11731306_/?showcpo=ShowCpo&ncse=no&orup=36_95_95&pc=N5V%200A2&sprx=-1

  6. That appears to have a fuel return/vapor release ("this side up") outlet. No Avanti I ever heard of used one. You have to have a higher fuel pressure pump to offset the bleed off. If you have a fuel tank return line on your chassis, this could be a nice asset.
  7. /// I bypassed the ballast resistor since the Mallory Coil (I installed a Unilite distributor) has an internal resistor. /// You should also install the Mallory Surge Protector..
  8. Yes, thank all. I'm still looking at this...
  9. Yes, I've verified the contact, thanks.
  10. Hello all, I am in negotiations to sell one of my cars and the respondent is a fellow named Jean Claude Legros. We have had extensive email back and forth and he says he recently purchased an Avanti on the west coast, using a Schumacher Logistics to transport the vehicle. The last conversation was one that tripped some flags, as he indicated this transport company will be the payer and pickup entity. The company is real, as is the person I was told to contact just gave me their details. I'm just doing some diligence. Does anyone here know this individual? thanks
  11. I believe the rear one was the return to spray the cooled oil on the innards as it dropped to the pan...
  12. Used to be owned by Cafaro

  14. Outside paint is a plus, but if you're going the POR15 route, consider opening up the door sills with a hole saw every foot or so and do the inside of the troughs too. That would be much more beneficial to the longevity.
  15. Have you tried this reference? https://studebaker-info.org/Avanti/Tech/Electrical/AEC/aec.html I carried this page for years before realizing who authored them. The 81 can't be too different
  16. Check with Dave Kinney https://endurancebuiltproducts.com
  17. You can try a heat gun to soften it, a putty knife to scrape it, but there's a risk of gouging the glass
  18. You can access the torque box bolts from the top by removing the sill plate and rubber mat and drilling a few 1.5-2.0" holes in the fiberglass. Use Kroil or PB Blaster on them from the top. Worth a try and beats hell out of drilling them out from underneath. Returning the sill plates and rubber conceals everything you've done.
  19. R series engines used Carter AFB's not WCFBs The jetting info you want in in here https://www.studebaker-info.org/rjtechdec2017p2g.html#R1R2
  20. Read this for booster replacements https://www.studebaker-info.org/Tech/Brakes/Boosters/avantiboosters.html
  21. The entire Avanti article is on the front page of https://studebaker-info.org
  22. Who knew.. https://bringatrailer.com/listing/porsche-904-replica/?utm_source=dm&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=2020-11-18
  23. Yes, Toyota Crown used the exact same piston at 2.25". If you go that route, ask about the crossover pipes also as they may be Metric thread.
  24. If you have Turner Brakes maybe, but the 83 Avanti came from the factory with Studebaker Bendix/Dunlop Disk Brakes
  25. I haven't any interior photos that intimate, but it's entirely possible. I'm sure that since they were improving the engineering of the body, they had to think of that,
