    "I was told"

    “ I was told “ falls into the same category as “ The seller states”. People flipping or helping sell vehicles they know NOTHING about. These half *** frases keep them from being held accountable when the deal goes bad. We were TOLD the car had a 340 in it. Sorry you paid 40 large for it and it...

    Another 383 Cam Consideration

    Yep..!! Like the numbers on that cam..!! Driveability is the key here. Looks as though it’ll need a decent spring @ 500 lift. The numbers @ .50 look like the torque should be right in the area you use it the most. Good luck..Swingn’

    Opinions on a new dash bezel

    Only one of the examples you show is actually for a 1970. The others are for earlier barracuda’s. (No wood grain). Yes if you have to have the chrome bezel with all the proper inlay. You are stuck with a good size bill..!! If not you can do quite a bit of home resto for not a real lot of money...

    anyone install long tube headers on 72 Dart swinger

    I have NOT used the Doug’s 453’s . I have installed many other brands in various A body’s. As soon as you mentioned ps I think you are on the right track. Ps makes this job MUCH closer in proper fit. The less expensive headers just don’t do real well with the ps. Maybe also TTI but check with...

    Manual choke

    Not sure I get it..?? 1405 CAME with manual choke..!! Yes you can convert to electric if you want. All you need to keep it manual is the small (L) bracket that bolts under one of the top hold down screws. Any universal old school choke cable will do. A small set screw locks it to the barrel on...

    Have a set on warmed over 383. So far so good. Checked out good before they went on, no issues. Very good people to deal with. The straight spark plugs helped my header situation. I personally would have no reason not to recommend a set of these heads. Good luck…..Swingn’
