  • Transmission: 63 Avanti Kickdown Rod

    Hello,
    Does anyone have a photo of an Avanti kickdown rod for a powershift.
    I seem to have misplaced mine or in fact never had one.
    I would like to see what I'm looking for.
    Is it anything like the kickdown rod off a Gt Hawk?
    Thanks for your help.

      Peter, you may want to read this string particularly Post #10 about the same rod on a different model, but relates to this.

      Do NOT drive the Car without it.

      I would think that either a Lark or a Hawk Throttle Pressure Linkage Rod could be length modified to work fine on an Avanti, if it's even not already the same length.

        Thanks Gents.
        Rob, as I suspected it doesn't look familiar.
        Studerich, Thanks for the warning.
        I guess I will have another look around the shed, no doubt it will be found (if I have one ) once a replacement has been purchased.
        Rob does your rod need a new home?

          The adjuster on the throttle pressure (kickdown) rod for the Studebaker Avanti is at the opposite end of the rod compared to a Lark or Hawk version. No doubt the Lark or Hawk rod would fit the Avanti, but access to this adjuster would be difficult or perhaps impossible once the Lark-Hawk rod is installed on an Avanti.

            Thanks for the offer but it already has a loving home.
