This , is silly... I love Kiss, and "Black Diamond".... You already know this ... i read in my mind ...Peter Criss screaming "**** Gobbler" instead of Black Diamond.. Yea, it's weird.... But, it fits....AB reference...
Good day there Frankie....hope you're doing good and well. I'am a new member here. Just looking at your profile you seem like a good and wise man !!! Happy to trade some words with you and see if I can't learn a thing or two from you. I live in Georgia as well. Our lovely good ol Southern state. Holler back if you like. Hope you'll be doing good.....
Just wondering if you are willing to sell the 1972 NOS dart grille you were saving for your son. I will be very generous for the complete grille.
Thanks for your consideration
Frankie, I'm replaceing my slant 6 on 1965 dart 270 with a crate 318 c.i., which is approx same size as the 273 c.i. Will my Torqueflight A904 trans and 2.93 rear end handle the up-grade. From what I know, Dodge kept the 3-speed auto trans torqueflite for the 273 c.i. and the rear end 2.93. Will my change affect my trans and rear end? jeffrey356.
Remember your Hemi buy,previous posts.. Had 600 bucks burning in my pocket,12 years ago. A local familiar(uh-hoh..) Mexican family, had an all original powder blue two door hardtop '66 Fair lane,96k on the odometer.. Drove beautiful, was agreement on sale..They wanted me to send money ,to the Mexico homeland,without a pink in sight.I even offered, to pay the owner via Greyhound, to close the deal... Of course, no response.Ugh..
Go get it !(lol).. Took a trio of friends to Pomona(06..).It's a damn good show,you already know ,the expenses... Go enjoy yourself, let Moochie & Fraud boil,in their uselessness and futility, until someone figurehead posts something they babble about. See you soon,don't read any Nazi comic books,lmao...

Talking about Trump's advertising keenness.. Watching NHRA on BSPN, funny car rounds.. The 1 vs. 16 qualified, 16 was red white & blue. The hood relief was up, had Trump's picture on it.. The car was eliminated, first round, he got his message across..
I'm sitting on a 1969 383 that built to spec about 400hp, with an 833 4 speed on it's butt. If I ever get the time to build something to put it in ( probably a pick up) I'll be a happy camper. I just never thought I be so buy in retirement.
My middle son wants the 71 Dart. And he also asked for the 383. He just purchased a 1958 Willys Jeep FC 150. It's similar to this 1959 model...
By having the dealership install the rear before I took possession of the new vehicle, the rear was covered by the factory warranty. As I recall, it was originally an 8-1/4. The optional factory equipment available on a mid 80's 1/2 ton van were pretty lame. The dealer purchased the original rear back from me as a new piece, as it had less than 8 miles on it. I don't know what became of it after that.
There was limited availability of a manual trans, but I've never seen one.
Also, the 9 3/4 rear was not available in the B100 (1/2 ton vans).
Here's a little info you might get a chuckle at, My 71 Swinger presently has an 8-3/4 in it, but for a few years I ran it with a narrowed Dana 60. Both with the 225 slant, and a 380 HP 360 crate engine. I brought the car back to it's original factory specs, except for the drive train. The original slant 6 is mildly built it has a modified 727 and an 8-3/4 rear presently, because I simply can tolerate the 7-1/4 that it originally came with. Other than that, the car is completely back to factory build sheet specs, down to the AM radio, and factory wheel covers. The slant puts out about 250HP at the flywheel though.
The 1986 van was an "off the lot" purchase. The 8 3/4 Sure Grip was installed by the Dealership at my request. I had to purchase the rear through the parts department.
I've Always preferred Danas. Hemi's 440's 413's etc, never once a rear end failure with a Ford 9 or a Dana 60. 8-/34'swere very stout, too, but I did break two of them over the years. one shattered the ring gear, and the other sheared the splines off one of the axles. The switch t Ford 9's and Dana's and the problem went away.
I found that using quality aftermarket components in the 8-3/4 rears worked great, but it was too expensive. I could get a 9" and even a 60 for less than the cost of a built 8-3/4, and the 9" had a far greater gear ratio selection available for them than just about anything else on the market at the time, including the GM 12 Bolt.
Also, the V8 Options in 1976 were 318, 360, 400, 440. On the 200 and 300 all V8's came with 727's. The 225 slant 6 was available in the 100,200,300's but I believe they used 904/999 transmissions.
