  1. RQB3263/81/305 Good Morning Avanti folks I replaced my hood insulation with a product from "Aircraft Spruce and Specialty Co." super sound proof with sticky back adhesive 1/4" thick X 48" wide sold by the foot at $13.50....p/n 09-01244 .ph.770-487-2310.... the hood needs to be off and laid flat on at table. cleaned thoroughly......this being large sticky back can be tricky to install (make cardboard templates first).....but has worked well on RQB3263 for 5 years
  2. RQB3263/81/305 .... I HAD EITHER NATIONAL OR KING OF CARBS IN JACKSONVILLE, FL ( CANT REMEMBER WHICH) BUILD ME AN NON ELECTRONIC QJET.... ONE MINOR ADJ. AND I HAVENT TOUCHED IT IN 5 YRS OR MORE ... WORKS FINE ....SEE YOU IN INDY ..... BILL

  4. RQB3263/305 .... ATTACHED is a pic of an access panel I installed behind the left front wheel.... when removed (5 10x32 machine screws) is allows access to the steering box, rag joint and most important number 7 spark plug....this took less than 2 hrs and panel is .050 aluminum but just about any thickness above .032 will work fine..... see you all in Indy!!

  8. Good morning Steve and all Avanti folks...... HEADERS.... Installed a set of OEM factory GM headers on my hot rod a few years back.... they were tubular stainless steel !! from 75 to early 80s chevy trucks and of course a factory perfect fit.......I found them in a local salvage yard for $50...yes stainless steel for $50 bucks......salvage guys and hot rodders know about them..... might be tough to find but i feel worth the effort....I will post a pic if I can find it.... Bill RQB3263.....

  11. RQB3263 81/305.......

  13. RQB3263 81/305 welding mod finished except for re assembly tomorrow I hope.....pic attached.....total cost inc. gas and damned good lunch for two in Ocala approx $85.....everything is 2" now and I dont ever expect to have to mess with it again (life time guarantee) .....BILL
  14. I like the cut and weld idea....someone will thank me for this mod 40 yrs from now ... but ill wait for stephen cade call today.....if he has the correct part ill go that route.....later BILL RQB3263
  15. RQB3263 81/305 ......Others are aware of the differences in the tube size..... and as usual i am the last to figure it out....Stephen Cade is checking his stock here in Gainesville Fl.....maybe ill get lucky.....BILL
