  1. Fair enough, if you get stuck I should have one but I'm sure you could get one in the US. Talk to Larry Shier, his details are on the studebakerswap site. pb
  2. I would assume you could get one off a new rag joint. pb
  3. If you can't find one I have one but I'm in Australia. Easy enough to post though. peter
  4. I like it. It looks in good condition. Congratulations. pb
  5. England Ps In Western Australia there has long been the story of the Mystery Avanti. Supposedly it came into Fremantle port at the time and seen around the suburbs but it's sighting could never be confirmed by a Club member.
  6. Some time ago I got the differential on my Avanti rebuilt . As part of that process they lost the clutch tag that goes on the outer cover bolt. Just wondering if all diffs had the same clutch packs and therefore the same tag number or where they different? Mine from memory was either 45B or 45C, I can't exactly remember . Were there any other variants ie 45A and is it useful to know what clutch packs were used? Thanks for you input. Peter
  7. I believe there has been one done recently by a New Zealand member
  8. I thought there was a bolt/ threaded rod on the bottom of the expansion tank that tightened onto that bracket. pb
  9. Wasn't there an early Avanti produced with a Saginaw steering box? I thought Brad Bez had worked on the car. Maybe it was a different steering box but it certainly wasn't a Ross. pb
  10. Gees, I thought it was the other way around. I guess the sleeves are at there highest point. pb
  11. Personally I would place the timbers between the hog troughs and the chassis and lift from there. pb
  12. Miky I don't think I have but I will have a look. pb
  13. Thanks Miky I can swap you a 63 cowl for the weather strip ( I assume it's the back glass) and you can sell the rest to Wapanzica. I'm in Australia so I can pay the shipping on the grill to you and you the seal to me. If you are interested let me know, if not no problems. peter
  14. The rear window seal, but give me a price for all as well. pb
  15. Look further down the page for doubledhotrod's post. He is parting a 69 Avanti . Dion is his name. pb
  16. 259/auto. It would certainly fit. If it is running and cheap go for it. If not use the money to fix your engine, I'm assuming there is some issue with it,. From the block forward they have different components which are transferable except the you need a long nose crank to fit the Avanti pulley so you may need to keep it a stock 259. Don't pay to much for it, a running 259 is probably $400 plus the auto. As I said if you just want to have some fun then go for it otherwise use the money on the original motor. Spares are around. pb
  17. Something about airbrushing springs to mind.
  18. I found I couldn't get one of my doors to move forward enough. I figured that the plate in the door wasn't allowing enough movement ie the captured nut was hitting its cover so I removed the plate, trimmed the edge off and reinstalled. This allowed me enough movement to close the gap. Maybe a long winded way of doing things but the cover was half hanging off anyway. I thought the A11 had slightly larger holes in the hinge to allow for more movement. pb
  19. I'm going for the less obvious answer. 3) pb
