  1. Power window service R1 1963

    Devildog.......I rewired my '63 windows and used relays . Made a panel to fit in the opening Mounted the relays to the panel along with a Terminal Block for all of the wiring connections. One caution, make sure the relays are mounted such that they do not interfere with the window going down. I can send you a photo or two if you would like. I see you live in Houston. I lived there twice,late 70's and late 80's John

  3. Battery

    X2 what Peddler said. I've had a 3EE AGM Battery in my Avanti for many , many years. No problems what so ever. It stays connected to the correct charger when not being driven. Expensive yes, but you will not be disappointed and you'll get many years of trouble free service.

  5. Speedometer & Tach R & R

    Chris.........do you have a Parts Book? If not, you should get one. It will show you how the Tach and Speedo are held in place. As I recall,( it's been 15-20 years since I did this last ) there is a UI shaped bar, on both, that holds them tight to the dash, with two small nuts. Remove the wiring, from both, and the speedo cable, and both should come out from the front easily. With , both out, you can now get both hands in there to remove the sender, change the light bulbs in the adjacent four gauges, etc.. John

    Sorry, but I do not have the Tach you are needing. ALL of those parts, from that posting, and a lot of other parts that were not listed, sold rather quickly over a year ago.
