Went to a couple of car shows this weekend and in between I decide to throw my bumper on, changed the whole look.
At a show less that 3 miles from the house a guy showed up with a 67 Hemi 4 speed..I only knew of one other 67Coronet in Houston much less a Hemi car..

Well I got tired of fighting the efi and timing issues. Don't know if it was the system, my lack of knowledge with it or the dual sync dizzy but I scrapped it all and went with an AED HP carb and MSD Pro Billet and the things runs pretty good.
Was finally able to take it out and put a few miles on it. Only problems are my muffler started to lean and rub the driveshaft as you can hear un the vid, and I need to readjust the lash.
Can't believe it's been 6yrs already!!!

Was that the noise that you mentioned on the phone that you heard from the back?

Ya, I had it up on the lift the first time I heard it ( drove to the next drive & turned around) and saw no witness marks or obvious clearance issues but after this drive it showed marks. I guess when the suspension compresses it does get a little tighter.
