    Awesome Mopar Wife!

    Exactly what makes a MOPAR a "Matching Numbers" car?

    I was there a while. I saw things. Like purple duster black interior white 340 stripe white vt /6 auto buckets console auto Build sheet 340 code best I remember. So I’d say numbers were 98% accurate.

    72 swinger v8. Torsion bar question

    I have the torsion bar against the frame. The bushing are shot I can see. So would the bars be fine after new bushings. Do they get weak? No damage no rust still have spring. Don’t want to replace unless needed. Any help, ideas ?

    Did they make 5x4” axles for 8 3/4 rear ends?

    visually, how does the 8 1/4 look compared to a 8 3/4. ?? don't want to miss read the part when peaking under.

    my thoughts. look at the fan belt and the spark plug wires and the rad hoses, tires, and shocks, if they are not the original numbers and date codes, then it is modified already. so do your thang, and drive it like you stole it!

    Kick down has 1/2 travel before lever engages valve

    The kick down lever will move 1/2 half before engaging the valve body valve. Gummed up? Broke spring? Why does it shift normal after halfway travel and not be shifting higher if it is stuck partway in ?. 1972 904 dart 318
