According an old Koni catalogue 80-1503 is the correct damper for the AH 
100-3000 1955-1968 together with brackets 8-350V. I cannot find anything 
on 80-1263.
These dampers are adjustable so you could increase the damping if they 
are not working properly. These dampers can also be rebuild by Koni 
I live very near the factory in Oud Beijerland where these dampers were 
developed and made. Sadly they have been taken over by ITT many years 
ago which meant you could not go to the factory any more to discuss and 
sort your damper problems personally. I went there quite often to have 
things sorted out with some cars that did some circuit and ralley 
racing. They also sorted my JH in 1977.
