    [FOR SALE] Beautiful 1965 Barracuda, 273-4 barrel

    Sadly I have decided to sell my 1965 Barracuda. I had originally purchased this car for my dad almost 6 years ago as he had given me a 1966 Formula S on my 16th birthday. Oringally a Texas car which is why the body is so great with all orignal body panels. Engine is 273-4 barrel, orignally the...

    [WANTED] 65 Barracuda Steering column, for P/S and foor shift auto

    I'll definately stick to the repop if necessary. I've located a steering column in western Canada. The seller isn't sure if it came out of a A body or not and not sure if it's for a P/S car with auto. It does have the return switch so the question is how can I confirm it's the right column...

    [WANTED] 65 Barracuda Steering column, for P/S and foor shift auto

    I've ordered the seal/bushing etc. Hopefully once they arrive along with the firewall gasket and coupler rebuild kit, we can get it all back together without any play. Also the wiring running through the shaft is crap and the signal return switch is missing which is why I'm considering...

    [WANTED] 65 Barracuda Steering column, for P/S and foor shift auto

    the previous owner had converted the car from a 4 speed to auto with a B&M shifter on the floor. When my buddy and I pulled the steering column to correct the play in the steering adapter, we noticed that the column had been cut. No lower bearing where he had cut it for some reason. Now I...

    Steering Coupler Rebuild "How To"

    I had installed new shoes from a later rebuild kit that I had purchased. Once everything was reassembled, the steering still had accessive play so my friend and I are tackling it again. When we opened the first time, there were no springs holding the shoes. I bought the car 4 years ago so...

    Steering Coupler Rebuild "How To"

    100% agree, which is why I'm consulting the group who has expertise from doing it in the past. I'm starting to think that the only good solution is to buy an aftermarket coupler for safety's sake if I can't purchase the correct rebuild kit and parts.

    Thank you Al. the 65 exploded view does appear to show the spring.

    Steering Coupler Rebuild "How To"

    great article Alan. Can someone please confirm if a 65 Barracuda with power steering can use the later rebuild kits? Are the shoes the same size and does it require the spring? When we took my dad's coupler apart, there was no spring on the shoes. thanks, Karl

    65 Barracuda driver's side mirror removal instructions

    so I have the door card and the the chrome trim off. Reaching the retaining nut is almost impossible. I think I need a very long 1/4" drive extension. Is there any trick to reaching this nut, is it from the bottom of the door?

    New Pitman Arm Help Please

    Hi all, quick update...I received a new Pitman arm from Napa and this one fit perfect. I have to assume that there was some issue on the casting of the brand supplied by Rock Auto.

    Hi guys, does anyone have the Napa P/N for the pitman arm for a 65 Barracuda. The Napa stores in Canada don't seem to be able to find it. Any help is appreciate as it's special order.

    New Pitman Arm Help Please

    Hi guys, would someone have the Napa or Moog P/N for the pitman arm for a 65 Barracuda. The information avaiable in Canada through Napa is vague at best.

    yes the double splines are lined up and I don't think it can fit with the taper the opposite direction can it?

    New Pitman Arm Help Please

    I didn't buy it from Rock Auto for the price, I'm using my buddy's hoist and when he went to get one from Napa, they didn't have one and didn't know when they could get one. I only ordered from them for convenience. I will try and find a replacement. thank you for the feedback!

    New Pitman Arm Help Please

    Hi guys, I installed a new pitman arm purchased from Rock Auto. Seems the same as the one removed however I can't seem to tighten enough on the steering box to show any tread at the bottom of the stud. I don't want to damange the splines or overtighten, just wondering if anyone has run into...

    Anyone make a factory appearance upper rad hose for 65 273?

    I really don't like the universal type upper rad hose on my dad's Barracuda. Looks like all the suppliers that carried the correct hose either don't carry any more or don't stock. Any help is appreciated!

    Electrical help needed, underdash wiring is a disaster

    Thank you all for all of your suggestions. At least I have some choices. I think I'm going to try and tackle this problem without buying a new $650 harness. The brake light switch on the brake peddle was faulty. Now that the brake light and single light issue is resolved, I'll check each...

    Electrical help needed, underdash wiring is a disaster

    The brake lights on my dads 65 fish stop working so I checked the wiring at the tail lights. Eventually ended up under the dash and it's a mess of poorly added new wires with heat shrink and butt splices etc. The fuse panel seems to be bypassed with inline fuses added. Other than buying a new...

    65 Barracuda driver's side mirror removal instructions

    Thanks Lee. It's my dad's car and I'm trying to get familiar with it. I'm not sure how to remove the top or metal part of the door panel or will removing the soft lower part give enough access?
