    I take offense, Fish are well loved around here in North GA! Anything unfinished in the state as posted, Without a very serious review, for more than $1k is too much IMO! It better have well documented purchase info and all factory tags and parts in place for a Resto project at that price...

    Question for members that were of age in '70

    To me, The "A" in LB/RB is nose heavy and more suited to the strip. 340 cars were much better balanced IMO! That said, I never lost to my younger brothers 70 340HP on the strip! As far as comfort goes the SB wins! Do the same on a road course and a 340 Stick wins the day! JMO!

    Wow Late in the year for this overheating post! Being an ASE Master Tech never helped me solve my overheating issues for to many years! In fact, they likely hindered it!!! We all think we know better! Go back to the Basics is my opinion! IE Your radiator is to small, Your Fan is inadequate...

    This example is not the typical 1/4 mile car with a BB/Hemi something or other. None the less, they just do not seem to show up much anymore! I enjoyed seeing it arrive and Immediately thought of my Dad's stories of driving them!

    Disc Brake Conversion Failing

    Also the OP Stated a swap to 68 Disc's. This would imply Kelsey Hayes. As a kinda less the happy KH owner since 1984 there are many issues that can be observed. 1" master is the best. A "REAL" factory Master would be heaven! They have been remanufactured and given every "lie" in the book as to...

    69 barracuda hood

    They share the same skin, However the underpinnings are not the same! Like mentioned the mounting for the Hinge is not the same "Use the Latter hinge" and there are ribs for the crumple area on the latter. Otherwise the holes for insulation pads and front/rear seals are the same. The latter...

    [Found!] A Body Console Ashtray

    The tray may be the same as the rear armrest trays used in B/C-bodies. Might be worth looking into. From my smoking days in my 69 Fish, it was very small, and the dash one was not much larger as well. The Part number stamped on it is 1A26311. And yes the plates on your console are 68!

    [Found!] A Body Console Ashtray

    So. Do you not have the tray at all? If you do and it is crusty, you can make sweet again!

    I think its time to give in and buy a new wiring harness

    I am an absolute firm believer in the M&H Harnesses offered through Year One! You must order the correct year harness! Folks have ordered otherwise and they are not the same and blame M&H! If you Order the correct stuff you will not be disappointed, Mark my word!

    Installing Axle Housing Seals: How Deep?

    Good for you, I have been at it even Longer! If you see differential fluid in your brakes "Talking 8-3/4 you better replace both seals and service the bearing! Otherwise you will likely be doing it again in short order! JMO!

    Installing Axle Housing Seals: How Deep?

    I disagree. Every issue I have ever had with 8.75 housing's had the same problem, Be it my trucks or cars. Yes the Bearing should be packed in grease on assembly! If either seal fails you have issues. If you think replacing the inners are the fix "all" then you may want to rethink things...
