    Does This Debunk the "Coolant Can Flow Through the Radiator Too Fast" Idea???

    ...ago I tried to get overheat issues diagnosed with a heat gun or pyrometer at the top and bottom rad hose, suggesting the difference should exceed 50*, and that 30* be a very min., suitable for a " lawn tractor". Then with little result, I suggested folks go shoot the temps on their daily...

    Does This Debunk the "Coolant Can Flow Through the Radiator Too Fast" Idea???

    I've often mused how raw water cooled boats (inboards and outboards too) running in various raw water temps from 32* melting glacial lakes, oceans, as some of my boats have been, how they maintain the 140* engine running temps that raw water thermostats run, (to avoid mineral (salt) crystalizing...

    I think I'd be checking the front calipers to see if the are seized. Try pushing the caliper pistons back into the caliper, see if you can get them to move. Mopar had a real issue with plastic caliper pucks/pistons seizing, especially sitting for long periods no use. Good luck.

    Brake pedal course

    Adjust the brakes. A lotta pedal travel can be wasted just moving the shoes out to the drum, - then you get "pedal". Adjust the shoes out closer to drum, you get pedal sooner.

    Brake Pedal Diagnostics

    If you put in new pads and shoes, you won't get pedal till the 4 front pads are in full contact with the rotor, so that can take a bunch pumping, and if the rear shoes are out of adjustment, it can take a buncha pedal movement/pumps to get un-adjusted shoes out to contact the drums, so no pedal...

We have never bought a sleeve since, - just add a shim and crush the sleeve a bit more. We were...

    833 belhousing adapter ring

    Seems to me you just buy the 2 adapters and "stack" the 2 together. Flatwashers on the retainer bolts hold rings in place.

    Trouble Installing 18 spline A-833 through dual disc clutch assy.

    The Hemi 18 spline input is on the large input bearing. As I remember it, couldn't you just undo the front retainer bolts, remove the imput shaft, - and use it as a pilot to align the disc splines, then put it back in the trans, and install. There's an issue with the fork.

    The 5303 had the #1 tube go straight down thru the "Y" gap in the k-frame, then went under the k and steering gear. Was first header I bought for the Dart from the Mopar Parts counter, kept warranty too. Was one of the first 3 things the Hustle Catalog suggested for improvement.

    1970 Duster brake master cylinder removal?

    Leave the m/c off the studs, pull on the pedal that's now near the floor, it'll pop the rod outta the m/c. Don't pull too far, cuz it'll hit the brake lite switch and knock it outta adjustment . That's one way.
