    71 A230 into 65 Dart z bar/linkage

    My suggestion would be to call brewers, they should have the parts you need. They are the experts The inner fender bracket you have there looks way different than the early a bracket/ball stud. The length of the torqueshaft (zbar on other brands) would be different on our narrower A-bodies...

    Before the rebuild, the synthetic caused seepage in many places. So conventional oil was in it. After the rebuild its been Mobil1 and STP oil treatment to add zinc for over a decade.

    Hagerty insurance

    There was no laughing. Hagerty sent him East instead of west to where I was. The car wouldnt move. That half a block is over 1/4 mile. Blocks here can be 1/4 or 1/2 mile.

    Hagerty insurance

    Ive been with them over 20 years. I'm switching to grundy, just because of the lack of real support for emergency roadside (at least where i live). I've used it twice in the last 5 years. The first time I was a half a block from home and the cheap Towing companies they do business with...

    anyone else here ever deal with the 4.7?

    The 4.7 I'm my 2010 Ram 1500 has over 196000 on it now. Still runs great. Changed the valve stem seals a while back. Other than that it's been trouble free (knock on wood). I hate the 545rfe the Trans though.

    Clutch & pressure Plate for 64 Dart

    Yes, so far I've been very happy with the AMS 05004. Only have a few hundred miles on it. It doesn't have the shudder that the one I took off had when starting to move. It Reminds me of the one I had on it back in 2003.

    Clutch & pressure Plate for 64 Dart

    I replaced the POS cheap Chinese B&B Luk brand clutch that I had put in my car on warranty from Pep Boys a couple years ago, just before they quit dealing parts. First disc came apart at the springs. This one had non centered pressure plate fingers, kept bouncing the throwout bearing off the...

    Low cost bucket seat covers, untill i can afford to do it right.

    For quite a few years I had an old black leather jacket draped over the seat-back on the driver's side to cover up the worn out side of it. A hulkmania shirt would have done similar.

    New skins from legendary, seat pads, carpet backs, carpet, canvas, muslin and then to have the seats restored has a fairly hefty price tag for the household budget. Will be awhile to have the cash on hand todo it. Try to find lowback bucket covers that look decent is a challenge as well. I...

    1965 Dodge Dart stock differential advice

    No simple drop-in differential changes for 7-1/4. Need before and after measurements, a housing spreader, arbor for more measurements and possibly different shims. Bearing and seals may need changed, also require additional tooling todo.

    I went through this same conundrum with my dart as well. Having a almost all original, begs the question, what do I do with it when the spiders in the 7-1/4 break... had originally thought a 7-1/4 suregrip carrier was my answer. Till it came to finding/affording one. Then finding parts to...

    Now that I took another look at the TSM in the book tryimg to see what the bimetal spring is. Thermostat spring is there, if you mean the little 'anti-rattle' spring that is missing now. Wasn't missing a couple months ago, but nowhere to be seen now.

    My original Carter carb hasn't had choke butterflies, nor anything hooked to the hear riser since 1975 or before. The first intake gasket I changed had a solid gasket on one side of the crossover, which I've continued to block off with any intake gasket change. The heat riser defaults to...

    That does bring back memories. Almost how the bowe looked when I was done with it. John, from John's auto upholstery in Longmont, CO did the fitting , stretching and shrinking to install the top, and made a well liner for it custom. My car was from a salt state, not a total rust bucket, but...

    That's a smart way to have an alternative to low quality modern ones. If I can't ever find one that works, will tuck this into the bag of tricks, 'Just in case' for the future. Fyi, I do have a tube of goop that I've used once or twice to keep the soles on my shoes...
