    Ubolts with flattened top? and pinion seal question...

    I think grade 5 would be fine. There are 4 of them and they only do 1/4 of the rear of the car. I would install new bushings in the springs as well if you have everything apart.

    MSD Conversion

    Are you sure you were at TDC on number 1? You may have been on the exhaust stroke if you were pointing at number 3. If you pulled the old distributor out and it was pointed at number 1 then your close to 180 off. In which case it shouldn't even run. My 383 runs well at 30 degrees advanced but...

    It's going 17 mph. What makes you think it's idling?

    Ticking/knocking after warm up

    I don't think 20 psi at idle is really low. Sounds like it's a collapsed lifter. Is it just in one spot? There's also been a rash of worn fuel pump pushrods which can clatter as well. If it sounds like the front of the engine that would be another thing to check.

    What coil to use with chrome box?

    Well actually you would get a higher voltage spark without the ballast resistor since you would have 12 x turns ratio Vs approximately 9x tunsvratio. But it may not have much longevity.

    19 year old trying his best

    Welcome from NY. 20 years is a long time for an old car to sit. Brakes and tires need to be high on your priority list. Looking forward to your progress and questions.

    Which electronic ignition

    Also the "shorting" wire inside the ballast need not be any lower gauge than the wires connected to it.

    Cam shaft Numbers help.

    Well that doesn't seem so easy... I did a little checking but can't correlate the sharpie writing with that cam? It could be a custom?

    anyone know of a reputable paint shop that can color match custom paint without a code?

    I just had my hood painted at literally the closest shop to home. They had a gun to read the paint color. It is very very close but I think white can be a tough one.

    Fuel pump pushrods-Again

    Sorry my post was poorly written. To clarify: 1. The fuel pump in the Plymouth is about 4 years old (it was new at the time) 2. The fuel pump from the Charger was removed when I switched to EFI about 6 years ago (that one is in a bag in my parts room). I said same pump meaning it was the same...
