    67-69 BARRACUDA FASTBACK W MINI TUB QUESTION

    nice job bodyperson. I made mine using the outer house as a template (for the odd radius) and went flush with the frame rail, made a metal grid (for the deck) from 3/4" square tube and attached it to the wall, covered it in 1/4" luan and "rear deck " material, ran the framework for the seat...

    Mopars at Lebanon Valley DragWay NY, Sunday 10/2

    I'm out this year. I've got a little more tuning to do. I don't want to embarrass myself. EDIT. Seems I might have figured it out. Cars cleaned and loaded up. See y'all there

    MNF: Peyton Manning Mopar Guy?

    Found this, apparently his "man cave"

    Ooof!

    As ugly as it is now, with the GoodGuys plate I would think this was a 70's custom that is being shown as done then. Having returned my car from that eras efforts, I can say that not all of it was great. The 1970's was a bad time to be a popular car body.

    Mopars at Lebanon Valley DragWay NY, Sunday 10/2

    It already looks like I'll be missing the musclecar show this weekend , I'm in the middle of taking out my Terminator X POS and going back to FAST Sportsman XFI/XIM. I should be ready by then though.

    Infamous reversing dash frame screw

    I may have missed it but I havent seen a reply yet that shows that anyone has done it?(and provided pics). Based on my meager attempt to see what it would be like installing from the bottom, I'm reassembling with screws from the top. As much as I dont ever want to be under the dash again, I dont...

    Infamous reversing dash frame screw

    I actually thought about this after restoring my dash and "sealing" it in with the windshield. In the event someone should buy my car,(so I can build the next one) I'm going to weld some 1/4"-20x1" elevator bolts (flat head ,all thread)to the dash where the bolts go through, remove the speed...

    Do you actually Hot Rod/Race your Mopar?

    I do both when the opportunity is there. I'll go to musclepalooza, musclemania and atlantic mopar shows at Lebanon valley (upstate NY). Make passes and park in the show. Without a roll bar I won't compete though (11.0's @120's).I'll do 2 qualifies and break out the first elim.While on local turf...

    4 to 2 bolt master cylinder

    If the new m/c cup is the same depth (as OE) the plate will make the pedal lower. Your better off getting the adjustable pushrod to compensate for any depth issues.

    A/C and Power Steering Delete on 07' Truck 5.7 HEMI

    Here it is, the only pulley was added to the circled mount. Hope this helps. Also a pic of the cover when I started cutting so you can see where the original p/s mount was.

    A/C and Power Steering Delete on 07' Truck 5.7 HEMI

    ^^^the idler was a factory delete pulley that mounted where the oe pump was^^^ as far as mine goes, I trimmed all the unnecessary casting of the truck cover, including the a/c mounts and p/s mount. the added idler is mounted to the water pump, the truck pump has a bolt stand off cast in it...

    A/C and Power Steering Delete on 07' Truck 5.7 HEMI

    I figured it out out of necessity. I wanted the drivers side water outlet and upper alternator position. Without a/c the belt wouldn't have enough water pump contact. The subsequent belt routing got kinda funky. The answer was already there (casting), just had to figure it out simply, and simple...

    A/C and Power Steering Delete on 07' Truck 5.7 HEMI

    I use truck covers and modify them to use a gm cs130 alternator. I dont use a/c or p/s. I dressed down the right (looking at it) upper bolt boss and installed a factory idle pulley. Its been driven and drag raced with no issues. If your gonna use the stock alt. It shouldn't be an issue

    New tool from Summit to prime Gen III oil pump

    I use a home depot $9 pump sprayer with the nozzle cut off and an 1/8"npt barbed fitting in the end of the hose. Take out the oil sending unit ,screw in the hose , put oil in tank and pump it up, you'll hear the air coming out of the rockers (new builds) and/or hear oil return to the pan. you...

    Correcting Mopar Valvetrain Geometry

    Had I used the b3 kit with the big retainers I wouldn't have had to change the springs. As far as valve "float" and rev limiting issues......there where none. Durability was not an issue with 5000 miles and 27 passes in the low 11's . I've seen and been on the receiving end of the beehive hate.

    Correcting Mopar Valvetrain Geometry

    This is the crazy angle with the taller crane retro rollers at full lift, I don't have a pic after the hughes and b3 kit, but with the shorter barrel and the rocker moved back, the pushrod is now centered. It doesn't take much. This all came to light with rocker to retainer clearance issues.

    Correcting Mopar Valvetrain Geometry

    ^^^^^^I sold my cranes for the hughes, they're shorter and the oil band stays in the bore. I originally had to hog the bottom of the head with a .572 lift and 3/8" pushrod. The angles were crazy. After the lifters and b3 kit, the rods cleared as if I wouldn't have had to do anything. It did blow...

    Correcting Mopar Valvetrain Geometry

    I can attest to the change in responsiveness (butt dyno?) The EFI 408 I had, did have some angle issues. I was already used to the launch characteristics of the car (street and track) After a consult with Mike, the obligatory paperwork (measurements), install and new pushrods (shorter). It was...

I only ever had to do services and adjustments, It was full inboard ,ran 2 alternators for house batteries and a 2 speed gear box. nice clean running...
