    Intake bolt question.

    My crate Hemi in 02 had hex head bolts, but I bolt a set from Mancini and they were the 10 point head bolts.

    68 Coronet R/T won't turn over

    It would be smart to make sure battery connections are good. Low amp lights don't really mean much. I had that problem and had to take off neg. cable and reinstall on battery and that was my problem. Start with easy fixes first, you may be rewarded without tearing your car apart.

    Install of water temp gauge

    On my gen2 hemi I used the Meisere with one opening threaded to put in water sensor for Fuel Injection. It was a WN0028U and about $35.

    Change Coolant

    My 58 Fury 350 blew out a freeze out plug and it was so unaccessible that I had to use a rubber plug to stop the leak. They do work especially when there is no room to pound it in.

    I had Ray Barton redo the motor several years ago and I asked for a street cam because I don't race. I've actually had it done 15 years ago and I actually can't find the specs on it. I remember vaguely the intake lift about .524 and exhaust about .549. Maybe give him a call and see what he says...

    Brake Testing at DMV on a Brake Machine

    Back in 64 Dover De. was not over populated when I had to do that test. Today when I pass through there I don't recognize Dover at all. Coming from NYC it was the boondocks to me back then. There was no toll road and we had to drive up Rte. 13 to get to NJ Turnpike and cross the De. Memorial...

    Brake Testing at DMV on a Brake Machine

    I remember that inspection for my 58 Fury when I was stationed at Dover AFB. That was back in 64 when I registered my car first time in De. from NY. Fortunately my car passed.

    engine issue

    You say fuel pump seems to be working. Usually at low speed is ok, but under load at 50 mph and up weak pump can't deliver enough fuel to sustain speed. Don't completely rule out fuel pump yet.

    MSD distributors for 1964 361 ?

    The RB B distributor engines have a longer shaft because where it mounts in the block is further away from the cam gear that also turns the oil pump. Chrysler built RB 383's because the low block B engine was so popular, it gave Chrysler cars another option. I'm talking big Chryslers not...

    MSD distributors for 1964 361 ?

    There was a 383 RB back in 59 and up for 2 or 3 years in the Chryslers so of course won't fit the 361, you would need that spacer to install from a RB motor into a 350, 361 or low block 383.

    steering coupler cover install

    Peter Bergman sells a rubber boot to fit over the coupler. I used it on my 71 Cuda with the Borgenson box. A lot easier than the Chrysler way and cleaner. He's a vendor, I know he is on the A bodies Forum. Probably here also.

    1958 Dodge Coronet

    I was 12 years old when the B motor came out so I really didn't follow what was going into what. I had a 58 Fury with the 350 and I thought I read somewhere that 350's were Plymouth and 361 in the Dodge because it was more upscale. As usual with Chrysler anything goes

    1970 426 HEMI Original Head Gasket Thickness

    When using old parts it might be best to consider the composite gaskets for better sealing, Unless head and block were surfaced milled.

    1970 426 HEMI Original Head Gasket Thickness

    The 71 Factory manual claims it to be .027 compressed. They don't give a figure before being compressed.

    Anyone using one of these?

    I've had it on my car, 71 Cuda for over 20 years and no problems. Just put one in a 74 Duster about 2 years ago. Nothing like a brand new part, especially for braking.

    Transmission jacks for a lift suggestions.

    I had a lot of experience with installing 3 speed trannys from chevy and mopar. When I blew the clutch in my 68 Road Runner that was out of warranty I figured I'd do it myself. No trans jack and when that thing fell on my chest, it was like a ton of bricks fell on me. After putting in new clutch...

    bolts bolts and more bolts

    In the torque specs in the factory service manual (paper edition) they call for 3/8 -16 for water pump to the housing. They don't give length so you can figure that out. Also housing to block is a 3/8-16 bolt although longer.
