    Power steering pump problems

    Found an aluminum one for $85. Saw a factory one that just sold on Ebay for $60, although most look to be about $100. You might check for a used pump (to get the pulley) on this site. You might also check a salvage yard (maybe a C-body pulley). "Maybe" 440 Source?

    Looking for header suggestions

    My 2-cents? With a "stock'ish" motor anything inexpensive that has a decent fit with 1-5/8" primary tubes...Heddman, generic Summit/etc or whatever. Just ask around here for fit, especially with power steering and/or clearance with idler arm/pitman arm. Even if you have to put a small "ding"...

    wiper inserts

    If you get stuck, I've used some before where I bought some off the shelf that were the correct width, removed the blades and cut them down (length)

    Power Steering Pump

    I've had good luck at local parts stores

    WTB 883 inspection cover

    You need to tell us if you've got a 10.5" or 11" clutch since the bellhousings & inspection covers are different.

    Hood scoop placement.

    I don't think it "hurts" to have the scoop offset

    Window regulator question?

    I'm not 100%, but I'm with Cranky on this one

    Newbie looking for help with trim

    vent window

    Does the "wrench" piece look like an "L" with two loops at the bottom half of the "L"? Is it attached at the very bottom of the long piece on the vent window frame? If yes, then there is a metal stud (about 4" long) that attaches at the bottom of the door (& extends inside the door) with a big...

    Vent window question

    Nailed it..... you are correct sir. I've just been working on my vent windows. 66-67 = same as convertible 68-70 & 68-70 hardtop/coupe is the same.

    Rear Window trim clips and placement

    I don't know your answer, but those clips "look" like windshield trim clips for a 70 Roadrunner....so "maybe" search for windshield clips & see if they're the same? Maybe try searching "trim clips" at RT Specialties and see what you find?

    67 Charger Suspension input needed!?

    Here's my 2-cents... 1. I would suggest you look for aftermarket wheels (17" or 18") since there aren't any 14"/15" performance tires available (at least no z-rated, soft compound tires that I'm aware of) 2. Keep the car as low as possible (turn down torsion bar adjusters & consider 1"-2"...

    rear end play

    Hmmmm…...if you turn the driveshaft, how much before the wheels move? Have you verified that the u-joints, tailshaft bearing/seal and rear end pinion seal/bearing are in good shape? No movement when wiggled firmly side-to-side?

    Auto Hurst Shifter

    Yep, I've seen some aftermarket automatic shifters lined up really, really well inside the factory consoles. I've even seen a couple that were bolted to 2"x 4" wood blocks to mount them (wood hidden by console) that looked great once completely installed.

    Anyone have a horn button retainer?

    Dang Terry, I think I might have one that would work for you......BUT, I'm not sure which one. I went through this myself a few years ago. I found out (the hard way) that there are several different styles of those horn button retainers. It seems like each steering wheel has a slightly...

    Anyone have a horn button retainer?

    What kind of stock wheel do you have? Do you have a picture of what the part looks like that you need? I think I have a few extras in my garage.

    The new guy, and some questions

    SCORE! You picked up a nice ride. I would suggest that if you "might" someday put a 4-speed in it that you make sure you rebuild the motor with a crankshaft that is drilled out for the 4-speed pilot bushing. Most automatics (like a motor home) are not drilled. You can get your stock crank...

    Restoring the hardboard headliners

    I'm not familiar with that particular headliner, but I had a friend that was a body man. He told me to take off all the interior trim & remove the board. I'm assuming this would be out the back hatch of a 66 Charger. Remove the old headliner. Lay out the new cloth & glue in place using a...

    Seat belt upgrade?

    Hopefully this helps.... I had a '73 Fury III 2-door that had a "buddy seat" (aka soft padded arm rest) in a split-bench seat (had high-backs, but a bench bottom). There was an extra seat belt in the middle for a little kid to ride with the arm rest (buddy seat) up. I believe it attached to...
