The bolts on the front hangers are press-fit, should be able to press them out.
I like the original look, but the bolts should work.
On the pinion seal, count the number of threads above the nut, and then mark a line on the pinion, the nut, and the yoke so you can put everything back to the...
The 1967 318 and 1966 273 heads are a closed chamber design that could be used to increase compression. I don't know how they flow?
Put some '67 318 heads on a friends 1970 Challenger 318, mild cam, 4-bbl intake, stock manifolds with dual exhaust and it runs pretty good.
I haven't used off the shelf pushrods in 30 years. I always measure for pushrod length and then custom order the pushrods from Smith Brothers pushrods.
Because the pushrod holes in the heads are sort of small, and spring pressures not that high, I just used 5/16" x 0.083" wall pushrods. I...
#1 - Factory Service Manual.
#2 - Wobble extension sets. When socket is pushed all the way on, works like a normal socket extension, 3/8" and 1/4" get used the most. I am using the GearWrench brand and they work for me. Avoid the real cheap ones as they won't hold the...
Don't know any shops in that area, but do find a shop that knows the early transmissions.
The park break cable / pinch bolt can be seized on a trans this old.
Might ask them if they know the differences in the transmission filters, canister-type transmission fluid filter ('60-'63), Dual port...
Most of the aluminum heads, the valve cover gasket needs to be trimmed around the outer rocker shaft pedestals to keep the gasket inside the lip of the valve cover.
I think the RPM heads, the valve cover bolt holes are at a slight angle? With the thicker aluminum valve covers the bolt holes...
Check the condition of the rest of the rear wiring harness and light sockets.
A new harness is $139 just in case the rest of the harness is messed up too.

Which flasher relay? A test light from ground to the flasher out terminal should flash the test light. Might want to check current draw. Remove flasher and connect amp meter to the connections where the flasher plugs in, and try the turn signals to see how much current they draw. I have only...
On the early 4 wheel drive trucks the 727 had a short extension tail shaft and a short drive shaft connecting to the transfer case.
I think it might have the 4-clutch front drum, and 4 pinion planet gear. The version I had, 1973, a yoke bolted to the output shaft, so the driveshaft would need a...
For the '69 Coronet 500, I just bought the Mopar HD replacement leaf springs, and the rubber shackle bushings for $20
Mopar Performance P4452987 Mopar Performance Rear Spring Shackle Bushings | Summit Racing
The lead springs were a bit under $150 each.
The goggles work good, and most will fit over eyeglasses if you need to wear them.
I have these: I posted Amazon description, link doesn't seem to work?

I have some prescription safety glasses that look about...
My thoughts too, but I don't think you would notice a difference between the two bushings at just the rear shackle, and the silicone lube seems to work good.
Just tighten everything with the suspension loaded, not hanging.
It is OK with me, I was just expecting it to be quieter with the hydraulic lifters. It will pull to 6,000 easy. Likely would pull higher rpm than that, but I have the rev-limit set to 6,000.
Pretty easy to hit the rev-limiter with the 5-speed manual and street tires.
