What about those of us with the short ones?
A good friend of mine who has owned alot of mopars, mentioned that you can use the dodge van tie rods from the late 90's, and maybe the 1/2 ton trucks as well, they are twice as long as our stock ones, it should work?
The build is looking great! I hope my '71 turns out as nice, keep it up.
What we made works with factory style tie rod ends. The issue is when you go to the style that Dangina did and went with a bump steer correcting tie rod end. So if you are not running bump steer correcting tie rod ends they will work/function correctly within your alignment specs. Our adjusting sleeves take the jam nuts into account on the over all length. If this is something that you are uncomfortable with you are more that welcome to send them back for a refund or house credit as to do understand it is personal preference. We just ask that they come back in resalable condition. Thanks James
Thanks for jumping right in and addressing the issue and concerns James
So I have been busy...to prove it we added another little guy to the family - his name is Sylvester Gauge but we just call him Gauge: started working on rebuilding the shifter, What a PITA to put back together! Whats worse was half way through building it I found that the brewers "rebuild kit" does not include everything. I had to wait for parts to finish it: So I had a couple days off and had to rush finishing the brake lines so I can get the motor in, so I have room on the floor for my wifes motor and tranny for her duster. I never had so many leaks in my entire life I think I bent and flared every line to the rear diff at least 3 times. Plus dumped about 2 bottles of brake fluid all on the fender and on me. I was not happy. I found out that if you use the longer fittings they seem to help. But secretly I really did them so I could finish one of my secret projects I thought of two years ago and is now just finished: so I had to drill out holes in the bracket so I could have the smallest footprint possible: I had to mark and drill holes in the floorpan for the lines and bolt the bracket to the floor. The bracket holes are exactly on either side of the torsion bar support rail. And it's the possition I want when I'm sitting down (luckily) the patch that is in place under the bracket so i can remove the carpet and the bracket stays in place drilled out the holes I need on the new hurst shifter handleL: Put it all together(sorry for taking the pic at a bad angle ): Run the brake lines so they clear the torsion bar hole in case of removal: And you got the worlds first Hydraulic ebrake pistol grip! Cool part now is my car will have both the 71 short shift and the 71 bench seat shifter in one car! Cleaning up the center console: got the aluminum pullys and brackets powdercoated: Dropped in the new motor! threw in my headman headers to check for clearance with the boregson box, seems theres a ton of room all around and clears my fast ratio arms as well!: got my parts for the shift and got working on the tranny, its the numbers matching A833 for my car, sat on the owners garage floor the last 20 years, still had oil in it, changed the speedo gear and seals to match my 3:55 truetrack, and painted it grey (previous owner painted it sublime green) got my new american powetrain bellhousing for my 11" flywheel setup, beatiful piece, 2 starter positions for the 10.5 and 11" setup, also it has holes on the backside to be mounted to other transmissions, very cool: Put it all together and what do you got?!
Nice, bet your excited to have the motor in there.
Congratulations to you and the family on the little one! Heck of an E-Brake!. Work is looking real nice, keep it up.
Congratulations on the new edition. Really like how you did the e-brake setup.
That is one sweet car, those headers really fit nice, hope mine fit as good. Really nice pics, thanks!
yep seam sealer, good stuff. went through a case myself. looks great, tough as a bag of hammers
they are hedman 78030, they are cheap! I bought them new for $150, I'll probably throw some wrap on them to cool them down yep! best stuff ever. I put that s*** on everything!
Coming together awesome! And I said this in your other thread but congrats on the new addition!
Wow, you are an artists sir! Thank you for including all this extra information. I've been looking at the camero rear spoiler to add my '72. But I couldn't find size information. So thanks! I'm looking forward to seeing what you do with the additional front spoiler. I've always been a fan of this spoiler, albeit lowtech. http://muscles-cars.skyrock.com/photo.html?id_article=749924452&id_article_media=-1
Thanks for the kind words, I've done alot of things I always wanted to see or do to this runner, I'm hoping when its finished someone, if they wanted, could look through the pics, see what I have done, answering any questions they may have. I thought about doping that type of spoiler, Although I'm gonna stick to the Camaro one for now, I will be getting a proper, trans am style one made for the car in the future. Sorry for the long wait guys, I have 5 things on the go and was waiting for it all to be finished before I post them - here' s one project that I recently finished: A airgrabber on a RPM intake that actually fits under the hood, another guy tried this on roadrunnernest.com where he cut just enough and cheat it slightly but the hood really pressed down on the intake, I wanted something that was a perfect fit, I bought this base from YearOne, its a cheap fiberglass base that you don't have to worry about cutting into it, and it feels significantly lighter compared to the steel OEM base. I may weight it later to see the weight savings... cut the hole i wanted - wanted to get it as low as possible so I have no issues: My QFT carb has two screws on the car that were preventing it from going lower, the nuts are just the size i need to putty over my dad teaching me how to work with carbon fiber Use the piece I cut off to trace out the size of the hole slowly sand to where I want it sand, paint, put her on - a perfect fit!! More stuff to come!
That's awesome work. Your dad looks like he's enjoying himself.
I can relate to your feelings with your car and you can see the results looking at the work done,,, As cool as the work to get this to fit properly i really love the last photo, looking at the air cleaner and the color of the car with the black stripe up and around is cool as can be man!!! You have one nice ride there and i do love the color lol, cant help it this Mopar body style with your choice of color is cool... And i too think your dad is enjoying it all himself!!!
thanks for the kind words guys! We had a great time working on the cleaner and i got to learn something else from him. With the wife and kids and life, i don't spend near enough time with him like I use to Stay tuned I have more to come!
Just seen this thread for the first time.well worth the read and wish I found this thread before messing up my gauge panel. Keep up the awesome work.
