    Convertible Roof Adjustment Advice Please

    My 70 b-body convertible's roof line, looking at the side windows with the top up, looks a little bit like a "tee-pee". Both side roof rails are pointed up, right at the hinge point in the middle of the side rails. This causes my side glass not to contact several inches of the rubber window...

    Air Grabber/Ramcharger Vacuum Reservoir Canisters

    So, I have a leak in my air grabber vacuum canister. I seem to have 2 choices that I can find on the internet. Reproduction that looks nothing like the original for $95 or a used factory one for $145. I would "prefer" it too be factory BUT, I'm more interested in it not leaking vacuum. I...

    3-speed Wipers Work But Won't "Park"???

    So, my car has been WAY apart for several years and I'm putting it back together (1970 Plymouth Road Runner). My 3-speed wipers appear to be working BUT they don't return to the "park" position when I turn them off. I drove the car for years and the wipers worked (& "parked") just fine, so...

    70 Convertible Rear 1/4 Glass Down Stop?

    First, let me say that my car has been taken WAY apart several times by myself and the previous owner. I'm putting it back together and I'm confused. I'm trying to set the lower stop on the rear quarter windows & the factory service manual has me baffled. The up-stops for the windows are...

    70 Convertible - Window Seals at Back of Vent Wing?

    On a 70 Roadrunner convertible, it "looks" like there should be some window seals for the front of the side windows. It "looks" like the seals would go inside the back of the vent window frame (in the channel where the front of the side window slides up/down). My car has never had any seals...

    70 Roadrunner Convertible Spare Tire Hold-Down

    OK, dumb thing #1, the guy who replaced my trunk floor threw away my spare tire hold-down bracket (many years ago). Dumb thing #2, I didn't notice. Are convertible & hard top trunk hold downs the same/different? Where do I get one? I have a threaded rod (3/8" by looking at it) & a smaller...

    What Non-Rally Wheels for 70 440+6 Road Runner

    I believe in 1969, 440 six pack Road Runners got black steel wheels, chrome lug nuts and no hubcaps, but what about 1970 440 six pack Road Runners that did NOT come with rally wheels? (either type). If you ordered steel wheels, were they black or body color? Did you get poverty hubcaps? No...

    68-70 Convertible Spare Tire Location

    Isn't this spare tire location wrong on a 70 Road Runner convertible? I thought they went over on the passenger side of the trunk on 68-70 convertibles and this is the hardtop location, correct? Am I dreaming?

    Does anyone know where to get the correct O-rings for the power steering box low-pressure return line nipple?

    Well, when I bought my car it was totaled & a complete basket case that came with 13 boxes of misc. parts.

    Well, since I'm working on my steering box I decided to replace my dipstick/tube. I didn't know what to buy for sure, so I bought the #2078 below. This is a 440 with headers in a '70 Road Runner. Here's what my engine bay looks like with the headers and the old/bent/leaking aftermarket...

    Replacing Power Steering Gear Box - Any Tips?

    The factory service manual doesn't say how to replace the power steering gear box itself. It "looks" straight forward....drop center link, remove pitman arm, pull back column (or coupler), un-bolt & replace. HOWEVER, when I did this last time (converting manual to power steering) I think I...

    Weird Power Steering Problem???

    So, I converted my manual steering car to power steering. I noticed that when I'm parallel parking (steering going lock to lock) I get a "belt chirp" & my power steering belt keeps getting loose. This weekend, I ran it up through 3 gears and the p/s belt jumped off completely. I replaced the...

    Weird Fuel Gage Problem???

    70 Road Runner - My gas gage hasn't worked in many years, so when I worked on my tank I put in one of those $25 repops so I could go to 3/8" line. When the tank is full, the gage reads 1/2. When the gage reads "empty" I have about 4 gal. of fuel left. I "figured" it was the cheap sending...
