    I was driving it this weekend and must have rev'd too high..so the coolant started leaking. What does it take to fix this problem?

    IIRC the Avanti has a length of rubber hose back by the tank; I'd replace it (no matter what, old rubber hoses are bad juju with modern fuel, just ask Kent Fedor) and put a cheap inline fuel filter in that section of hose and keep it there until either you verify that the fuel tank is not putting any muck into the fuel system or after the tank is removed and properly cleaned (and sealed if necessary.)

    I hope there's no 4-year old gas in it. The old gas syrup that was in mine clogged the filter and didn't do the carb any good either.

    Ok so I just got my '63 R-2 Avanti started after 4 years. What are the next steps in keeping it running? Here is the link to my previous topic on trying to start it...http://forum.studebakerdriversclub.c...87&whichpage=4
