    1970 /6 Dart

    Got a little more done today. I pulled out what was left of the speedometer gear. It looks like its a 35 tooth, I'll start perusing around ebay for a new one. I got my huge tach installed today too, I scored it on facebook market place a few months back for only $45.

    ****! I just remembered that I didn't clock the speedometer gear when I plugged it into the tailshaft.

    1970 /6 Dart

    Finally got the car down off the jackstands and drove it around just a little. The clutch is making a horrendous sound from where it got weathered some but all in all it runs and drives nicely. For some reason I lost my speedometer mid-drive so I'll have to figure that out. Also, I'd like...

    1970 /6 Dart

    IT RUNS!!! So just to recap, this engine has sat under cover for 2 years in an open carport since I bought it from Rick, and its been 5 months since I started the 4 speed and engine swap, needless to say I'm quite pleased it started and ran as easily and as well as it did. I was also not too...

    Finally some progress again! Got the oil changed and new spark plugs in. Last weekend kayleigh and I pulled the transmission back out since everything is mocked up now and we installed the flywheel and clutch and got the chance to teach kayleigh to use a torque wrech. I bolted a spare...

    Worn out..........good or bad, got the Scamp off to "roof repair."

    160 vs 180 thermostat

    Changing the tune doesn't change how the engine is machined. Youre going to wear things out much faster.

    Rotor change any one do this?

    Nope. But I've also never used mopar replacement parts, just cheap chinese crap. Maybe that's why? Somebody should crack open their factory service manual and see if they can find something on it.

    I wonder if I could use that method to make a patch of passable quality for the wheel opening on my quarter panel. Hmmm....

    So Haven't made any progress on the car, I got distracted and built a new front deck on the house. I still haven't fixed that dang lawnmower yet..... But in car related news, I did score something fun on Facebook Marketplace for $100. It's nice and tight and the bearings turn freely. I'm...

    Fork too far back?

    They don't make a 10-1/2 and 11 " combo for slant sixes. Except for maybe the granny gear 4 speed apps in trucks, but thats a different tranny and bellhousing that won't fit in a car. Frankly, you need to get rid of that 10" bb unit and either step down to a 9 inch or have your flywheel...

    Looking good Rob. I change my vote for paint color to silver. A nice bright silver with metal flake would make that red pop.

    My 1972 Dodge Dart

    It looks like you might have room for two small puller fabs mounted diagonally in the upper left hand corner and bottom right corner. If you leave the pusher then the 3 fans should cut it. Noce car! Looks alot like the xv motorsports car.

    I always used the subbframe directly in front of the front leaf spring mounts for the rear. And the subframe in front of the transmission crossmember for the front.
