    Check out Au-ve-co Products. I have bought a box of 100 specialty fasteners for pennies compared to some on-line suppliers. Most industrial suppliers have a listing of their products or go on line http://www.auveco.com/

    318 engine problems 67 Coronet 500

    One other thing to watch for is these older engines have soft valve seats. Prolonged use of "un" leaded will wear the seats allowing the valve to sink into the head. If your going into the engine, have the valves ground and hardened seats installed.

    1969 Dodge Coronet 500. Should I go for it?

    looks good in the picture. A very close up look for rust in the body and floor/trunk will tell you what you have to work with. That rear end gear is a bit much for the street but do-able. That might be your first expense. I'm sure you could get it for less then asking price.

    torsion bar reinstallation

    I've found that leaving the lower control arm loose at the ball joint allows the arm to pivot down a little lower which gives a better alignment between the rear and front hex's. Make sure the adjustment bolt is backed off or removed. Yeah, a little help pushing the torsion bar forward while...

    Whats this?

    I rebuilt my 68 Charger from the Media Blaster up and never came across that part. My only guess would be the brace to support the tail light trim cover in the trunk, not on the 68. If that ain't it then I'm pretty sure the rudder for a ducks *** is correct

    66 Hemi Belvedere Starter Problems

    does the engine turn over freely with a socket on the damper pulley bolt? Did you test the starter before installation? Do you have an after market bell housing? Your last sentence, is that a statement or a question? are your cables and terminals clean and in good shape?

    Need advice on how to correct my driveline angle. 69charger with keisler kit

    I agree with 696pack's statement. I to have bought aftermarket name brand parts through the years only to find some don't fit or require modifications. And when you finally get through to their "tech" support they act like your the first person to call with this problem and can't help you.

    Radials would be my choice to for improved handling. The term Wide Oval refers to the profile created by the cross section of the tire and rim combined to create an oval shape.

    Drum Brakes locking up

    One simple check, that would cause this, is if the primary and secondary shoes are in the wrong mounting locations. They should be installed short lining to the front of the car, long lining to the rear. Hope I didn't insult your mechanical skills lol but I've seen it happen. Just the first...

    Biggest rear tire on superbee?

    CJ, a large tire size in a stock wheel well is limited to several factors. The size of the wheel well, rim size and off-set, or back set. I went to TireRack.Com to research tires for my 68 Charger with new M/P Hemi springs and 8x15 inch stock steel wheels. If you click on a selected tire it will...
