    The cylinders are leaking through the seals. Is there a shop that rebuilds them? Or who sells new ones?

    Alternator brackets, A/C or no A/C

    I am finding a large mix of alternator brackets were used over the years. some are designated for A/C, others are not. Does it really make a difference? I am using the top one below. I guess it is a non A/C bracket, even though it was on the 78 motor home 440 that had a single belt A/C. I am...

    900 RPM idle

    The factory under hood engine tag is still there. 1973 Charger, 400 4bbl, 4 speed. It says the idle should be 900 RPM. That seems a little nuts to me.

    Runs fine on 87

    Have put about 300 miles on the rebuilt 383 now. First tank was the remainder of the 91 octane gas. Ran that out with no issues. Put 10 gallons of 87 in the tank and surprisingly there were no issues with that. Just put 10 more gallons of 87. I think the 383 is going to be happy with no high...

    NAPA is starting to suck

    The local store changed hands a few years ago. Been down hill ever sense. New counter guys are not very knowledgeable now. I went in for front brake parts for the 73, complete overhaul, they had a $75 rebate on $250 or more. Great, so I ordered my parts and fluids and everything, over a couple...
