    Doctor Diff Viper-Style 13" Front Disc Brake Kit

    Car is a 1965 Coronet. The early B body cars had the antisway bar tied to the struts. Mopar engineers sometimes used the front struts for that purpose, especially in the early days.

    Doctor Diff Viper-Style 13" Front Disc Brake Kit

    They can, depends on the make and model and year. The late model drum brakes used the same spindle as the disc brakes. In fact, I used to sell a Viper based disc conversion kit that was based on a drum brake knuckle.

    KYB vs Monroe vs Bilstein?

    Finding good shocks for Mopar muscle cars requires a little bit of work. If the car is all stock you can use most any replacement shock and it will work. Might not last a long time, or it might not work great, but any replacement shock should be safe to use for a street car. If you modify the...

    Pinion nut torque

    You need tools to torque a pinion nut. Nobody can do it with their bare hands.

    Average house price in your state?

    Prices have gone way up. Sold my last place for $1.6m, downsized to a $800K place. Don't have a shop anymore though so that kind of sucks. The last place was on 3 acres and had a 3000 sq ft shop with heated floors and an overhead crane. Now I'm in a subdivision.

    69’ B-body Baer brakes w/ 72’ vs. 73’ spindles

    Koni shocks would be the best choice since they are adjustable. Koni has a front shock that is a direct fit. Their rear shock is designed wrong and requires some minor mods to work on a Mopar.

    Where to route fuel return? Sniper EFI on '69 charger

    On my Duster project I built a custom aluminum tank that sat over the rear axle. The stock location under the trunk floor was consumed with the trans cooler and the exhaust system. The original owner had a fuel cell in the trunk but I wanted some storage space in the trunk so I moved the tank up...

    69’ B-body Baer brakes w/ 72’ vs. 73’ spindles

    Sounds good. If you're willing to buy really good shocks then I'd go ahead and recommend the 1.08 torsion bars and a big anti-sway bar. But you have to run a good shock like a Koni or else the bars will shake your fillings out.

    How much carb is too much carb

    The Torker intake is not a good intake for Torque. That is why Edelbrock used a different spelling. They knew it didn't make Torque so they called it a Torker. I learned that lesson the hard way! Back in the 80's when I first started working on cars I saved up my money and bought a Torker intake...

    Would a 71 B Body out handle a 2018 BMW M3?

    Tim loved that car. I enjoyed working on it. It was very rewarding to work on it since Tim was such a good driver that he knew instantly if we had made an improvement or not. But yeah, it was a 99% effort type of car. Very unpleasant to ride in. Tim liked driving it though. He drove it to work...

    Would a 71 B Body out handle a 2018 BMW M3?

    The Shoney car could be sold. It has been several years since I last talked to the guy who owned it when I took these pictures. He retired and I moved so we just don't see each other anymore.

    Would a 71 B Body out handle a 2018 BMW M3?

    Last I heard Tim's Valiant was in the Reno area but that was a few years back. The owner was on Moparts and he contacted me a couple of times with questions but I haven't heard from him now for a few years. That car was too stiff for me. Tim and I would take it to lunch and I'd be sea sick by...

    Would a 71 B Body out handle a 2018 BMW M3?

    It was a 340 reproduction block. We had to a lot of machine work on the block. I had to custom build a set of fixtures so we could hold the block in a vertical mill. Machining the block became a project within the project.

    Would a 71 B Body out handle a 2018 BMW M3?

    If you look in the background you can see an original MW race car. I think it is an aluminum front end car but I'm not positive. It has been a few years since I took these pictures.

    Would a 71 B Body out handle a 2018 BMW M3?

    The guy who owns that car lives in the area. The car is complete but I don't think it has run in many, many years. It just sits in the garage. I tried to get him to get it fired up and on a trailer so we could take it to PIR for a club day. I think it would be wild to see that thing out running...

    Would a 71 B Body out handle a 2018 BMW M3?

    No, they were what Hughes called a Stage 3 port. I think it was before they started doing the "big mouth" head or else we would've gone that way.

    Would a 71 B Body out handle a 2018 BMW M3?

    Yeah the engine in Tim's car was a 427 inch SB with fully ported Edelbrock heads. It had a small cam and a small carb since it was a street driver with 2.94 rear gears. It made more torque and more hp than a Viper engine so that was good, but it wasn't at its potential. His car really needed a 5...
