    Low oil pressure at stop light.

    You didn't mention what type of gauge you have. If it's the factory electric gauge like the one I have on my rallye dash then you could have a bad oil pressure sending unit that's located near the distributor. I had a new Standard PS59 sending unit and the needle on the gauge would go to the...

    ignition and turn signal switches??

    Do your switches still work? Try cleaning and lubricating them before you replace them. They may be in good shape. I thought I needed a new ignition switch because the key wouldn't spring back from the start position to run until cleaned I cleaned the switch with WD40 then sprayed the shaft with...

    Is this a bumper for a 1972 Scamp? If so I need some bracket to mount it.

    1972 was the first year for the hook type jacks and slotted bumpers. Your bumper has slots so I would say yes it's for your car. Your rear bumper should have slots also and your bumper should be the hook type. If you still have the jack instructions on your trunk lid it should look like this...

    FABO has option codes listed under articles Mopar Option Codes. The top line of the fender tag shows V5X which is Body Side Molding, Black. If a car came with a side molding it didn't have a Bumble Bee Stripe. My car came with a side molding, V5X, however I left it off and added a Bumble Bee Stripe.

    Duster windshield removal/replacement

    I had to remove the trim and seal the windshield myself because the local glass installers I talked to didn't want to risk scratching the paint. It's a very messy job but well worth it. You have to keep checking for leaks and keep filling the openings until the leaks stopped. One installer told...

    Duster windshield removal/replacement

    I discovered I had leaks in my front and rear windshields this past summer when my car got caught in a downpour on the way home from a car show. The windshields had been replaced, however they didn't have bedding and glazing compound installed around the windshields between the seals and the...

    1970 Ignition Switch

    I took my steering column apart yesterday to work on the ignition switch and found the shaft was dirty. The ignition switch spring couldn't get the shaft to fully rotate so I cleaned the switch with WD40 then sprayed the shaft with lithium grease and now the shaft fully rotates. I also cleaned...

    1970 Ignition Switch

    Dave, Thanks for your comments. I suspect the problem is with the switch and I want to see if anybody had a similar problem with a 70 and later car. I'm hoping it's possible to fix the problem without taking the column apart since as you can see in this FABO article you have to take a lot of...

    1970 Ignition Switch

    I have a 1970 Dodge Dart 340 that has a rallye dash and an in dash tach I got from Classic Industries. I thought I was having a problem with the tach because the needle doesn't move when I start the car, however it does move about 10 seconds or longer after the car starts running. Yesterday I...

    how to identify

    69 was the last year for the flasher switch on the dash. 70 was the first year for the steering wheel lock and flasher switch on the column. I think the 70 column with auto shifter is pretty much identical to the 71 column except for how the flasher switch operates. The 70 flasher switch is...

    1970 Dart Leaking Rear Window

    I found out my rear window leaks into the trunk when I got caught in a downpour on the way home from a car show two weeks ago. The leaks occurred at the bottom corners. I read an old post that stated there are two different rear window seals, one for cars with a vinyl roof and one for cars...

    Cigarette lighter location?

    I got a new Rallye Dash bezel for my 1970 Swinger 340 in 2016 and I remember the back of the bezel was marked where the cigarette lighter goes so you could drill a hole for it. If the one you have isn't marked you'll have to mount it like Murray said and mark it yourself.

    1970 Steering column question

    I think 70 automatic column shift steering columns are pretty much the same as 71 and later columns except for the flasher switch. 70 was the first year the flasher switch was placed at the bottom right side of the column and you have to push it in to activate it. According to my drivers ed...

    If you're not too concerned about keeping the original interior color you might want to consider black. My exterior color is FF4 light green metallic and it had a dark green vinyl roof.
