Changes during production and S/Ns

Discussion in 'General Amphicar Discussion' started by, Jan 26, 2001.


    Here are a few interesting lines from the Maintenance Manual I have
    found during it's convertion to a digital format. I thought it would
    answer at least when they changed the heater placement (beginning
    with serial no.103001) It seems that the order of production or S/N
    determined car color too. Humm?

    I'll add more as I find 'em...


    5/15 - Alignment
    These track rod measurements are only after Chassis number 101501 for
    green and red cars, and after Chassis number 100801 for white and
    blue cars

    6/15 - Hand Brake
    Figures 4 and 5 shows modification after Chassis number 103001 (two
    possibilities of adjustment).

    8/9 - Exhaust
    Note: Beginning with serial #101670 for red and green vehicles and
    serial #101250 white and blue vehicles, a new exhaust system was
    installed at the factory for all vehicles having serial numbers lower
    than the above. The muffler and exhaust pipe of the new exhaust
    system should be installed as one unit for replacement.

    9/11 - Heater
    Heater (version beginning with serial no.103001)
    After serial no.103001, the factory has installed a new heating unit,
    the heater is mounted in the trunk, at the right hand side, between
    the fuel tank and the sidewall (Fig 4)
