    426 Hemi install?? Top or Bottom?

    Last December 2021 I installed my Hemi from the top into my 67 Charger. My only issue was the driver side exhaust manifold clearing the power steering unit, so I removed the exhaust manifold and dropped it in. I had the car on a 4 post lift, so installing my transmission was not an issue with my...

    Dr Diff Disc conversion kit and new brake lines

    That's interestin, I have bought several parts from Richard EHRenberg for my restoration. The most expensive and rare part I bought was an original starter from him for my 67 Hemi, which is a one year only solenoid on the BOTTOM setup. I paid $1500 after looking for a year and trying 3 different...

    Dash lights not working but headlights switch works. What am I missing?

    I have read so many posts for the last 6 months and have tried to resolve my dash lights not working but no luck. This morning I realized that I do not have my 3 new relays installed for the rotating headlight buckets. Do those relays have to be connected in order to complete the circuit to...

    Dr Diff Disc conversion kit and new brake lines

    That's an interesting fitting but I will try Dr Diff's brake lines first and see if that works. Thanks for the information, I will save in my files if needed. Have you used this type of fitting?

    Dr Diff Disc conversion kit and new brake lines

    Yes I agree, I thought it might be the caliper seat BUT I have a second set of new calipers that I installed and it still leaked. I have taken a photo of the seat and attached. I even tried another Forum member recommendation to install a Parker 2GF-3 washer, see attached photo, and it still...

    Dr Diff Disc conversion kit and new brake lines

    I installed the same line on two different calipers. I had bought a second set of calipers for future needs. When the first caliper leaked at the top, I installed the second caliper and the nut threaded all the way in. I wrote to Cass (Dr Diff) and he questioned the same observation. He sent me...

    Dr Diff Disc conversion kit and new brake lines

    I hear your frustration with the front disc brakes. On my 67 Charger, I did buy the master cylinder and booster fron Dr Diff. At the time ( 2 yrs ago) he was very helpful by phone and email. I had my original Bendix 4 piston calipers rebuilt by Calipers Online, very easy to talk with and great...

    Oil Pressure Sending unit Part Number

    To piggy back off of this post, what about the wire clip that fastens to the oil sending unit from the wire harness that comes up from the starter? I have a 67 Charger Hemi with a new battery cable wire harness, which conects to the starter and has one wire that connects onto the oil sending...

    66-69 4 piston brake caliper rebuild questions...

    I had mine reconditioned at Calipers Online. Did a nice job. Calipers Online I had the same type of pitting on mine. I had bought the kit, installed but the pistons fit too tight. So I bit the bullet and sent to Calipers Online. Call Mark @ 810-278-3141. Good luck.
