    Biggest front tire that can be run on 1964 plymouth valiant

    I have 215/50/17 on the front of my 65 Dart and they seem like a perfect fit.

    Unique "5-Pack" Mopar

    Dumbest thing I've ever seen. Great way to starve the rear cylinders :realcrazy:

    904 Linkage seems off?

    The adjustment is on the transmission side of the cable.

    904 Linkage seems off?

    It was a while back but I ended up removing the pan and setting up a camera under the car so I could see the lever movement when I shifted through the gears. I adjusted the cable and all seems to be working properly now. There's probably another way but that worked for me.

    Peanut Gallery Survey for my /6 Build ...

    I rebuilt the 225 in my Dart a couple years ago. Shaved .70 off the head, did some mild porting, Oregon cam regrind, super six intake with a Weber carb, ported the exhaust manifold, 2.25 pipe through a turbo muffler and electronic ignition. Won't win any races but very fun to drive and gets...

    How to remove rear window trim 65 Dart?

    I have to say that the rear window trim on these cars is not a high point in Mopar design history. Part of the rear window trim was pulling away from the window so I pulled on it and the bottom strip came right off but the rest is on there pretty solid. Are there clips holding it on or just...

    Manual vs. Power brakes.

    I have converted many drum/drum cars to manual disc/drum with no issues. My dart stops great and I do not feel the need for a booster. The bore size of your master cylinder does have some effect on braking power so do your homework there.

    I'd love to see if this works. I've often looked at the back of my 65 and thought the bumper does not look right. I think the thicker 66 bumper would look better.

    Gas price going up // Rethinking the new project car

    When I got my Dart I was tempted to build a 318 or 360 but the Slant looked so cool in my car. I rebuilt it, ported/shaved the head, added a modern cam and a Weber 2 barrel. Won't win any races but surprisingly fun to drive and gets amazing gas mileage. Bonus is I always get a cluster of old...

    what's the favorite replacment starter for these sixes?

    Just beware of cheap Chinese mini starters from the auto parts stores. I bought one from NAPA last year and it died after about 30 starts. Bought an original Denso one from a junk yard (90s Dodge Dakota w 120k) and it has been working flawlessly so far.

    Headlight switch issue

    I finally got the correct switch and put it in this weekend. Works great but what a pain in the ***. I've pulled the dash apart 3 times for various reasons and removing and replacing that switch is probably the hardest thing to access on the entire car.

    Headlight switch issue

    It looks like I ordered MD9341. I thought it was the right one but maybe MD337 is what I need.

    Headlight switch issue

    My headlight switch stopped working on my 65 Dart. Ordered one from Classic Ind. and it appears to be slightly larger than the original. I tried to insert the switch shaft/knob and it slides in but does not lock in place. Has anyone had this issue? Wrong switch or just a defective one? Is...

    Change 8.25 rear axle to big bolt pattern

    I've got a 65 Dart that has a post '73 7.25 rear end. I found a 8.25 rear axle from a 72 scamp that has a better rear gear ratio. How hard is it to convert that to the big bolt pattern? Is it hard to find axles?
