    [WANTED] NOS Mr. Norm's Tri Power Air Cleaner/Filter $$$$$

    Just curious. What is the outside tape measure dimension of a correct oval filter. If you knew that maybe you could find a round air filter of the same circumference and form the round one into an oval.

    Is this panel available aftermarket?

    I needed them when I was restoring my ‘69 cuda and I ended up making them myself. I still have the patterns but they are marked up and don’t remember if the patterns need to be modified. My car had fenderwell headers at one time so those two braces were pretty hacked up. They came out nice and...

    Potato Pancakes

    They don’t need to be blanched. Just drain some liquid from them because a lot of the liquid contains starch.

    Potato Pancakes

    And they have to be fried in Crisco. They don’t taste the same if they are cooked in anything else.

    M code mounts

    Actually the angle iron piece is part of the upper shock mount bracket from a late 60’s pickup and the bracket is the 383 A-body mount that’s been re-bent.

    M code mounts

    You are correct. The right side bracket is the same as the B/RB. Does your left side bracket have the angle iron bracket welded to it?

    Do I have a sure-grip or not?

    We ran Shangra-La Speedway in Owego NY and Spencer Speedway in Williamson NY weekly. We also ran In special events at Pocono Speedway on the 3/4 mile inner track and Oswego Speedway in Oswego NY. These were all asphalt tracks. My only dirt track experience was in a Dwarf Car once at Brewerton...

    How do I find an 8 3/4 rear in the jy

    And we usually paid $50 bucks for them. LOL! Back in the day a friend of mine mentioned a truck in the junkyard having a 8-3/4 but it wasn’t a suregrip so he passed on it. I checked it out and it was a 3.55 and the best thing was that the bed was missing so I didn’t need to crawl under it to...

    Do I have a sure-grip or not?

    Back in the mid 80’s I ran a Chevy circle track car with a stock 10” rear and we never broke a C-clip but we did break a right side axle once. After that happened we would replace the right side axel halfway through the season. The real problem is twisting an axle since there’s nothing to hold...

    How do I find an 8 3/4 rear in the jy

    You need to go back and check the center section. It might have a 3.55 in it or if your really lucky it might have a suregrip in it.

    Cutting A833 Input Shaft Question

    Before you install the bearing mount the bell housing and stick the transmission in. Do not install the clutch or pressure plate. If the face of the transmission meets the bell housing there is no need to cut anything. If there is a gap then measure it and add a quarter inch to it and cut the shaft.

    It could just be a worm steering component like a tie rod, pitman arm or idler arm.

    Our 2016 Chrysler 200 got 37+ on trips. PT Cruisers are probably under powered since are really rebodied Dodge Neons.
