    Ignition problem

    If I do another car like an a body again, I will buy all the M&H harnesses from year one on sale, then replace every one and enjoy not chasing electrical gremlins all the time…..

    Ignition problem

    That means that one of your ignition switch circuits is not powering your coil. There are two power sources for power from the ignition switch. One supplies power during cranking, which bypasses the ballast resistor. It is called Ignition 2, Brown wire One supplies power in the run position...

    What are you using for 8 3/4 pinion seal?

    Watched a couple you tube videos for the sleeve it went on easy. Used the leather seal because I already had it and didn’t want to wait for another one. Can’t really return little stuff to rock auto because of shipping. We’ll see how well it works. Thank to everyone for all the advice!

    What are you using for 8 3/4 pinion seal?

    Got my yoke off and it is a little grooved. Can feel it with a fingernail pretty easy. Ordered the sleeve and the seal from Rock Auto and I got another one with a leather seal! Ouch! Thought I ordered the rubber one. Going to look again & see if I can find the rubber one. What does everyone...

    Factory Gauge Panel maintenance

    Some folks put LED light tape inside the cluster. Looks pretty cool and you can change colors.

    Electronic ignition problem on new install

    Sounds like you don’t have the “run” ignition wire hooked up. There are two ignition feeds, “run” and “start”, called Ignition 1 and Ignition 2. Blue and brown wires I think.

    Borgeson Power Steering Thoughts....

    Change the input shaft seal while it is out. Hate to have it leak after installing it.

    340 vs 360 confirmation

    My 340 manifolds are what you described. I was using a stock exhaust which necks down to about 1 3/4 or so at different places, so I decided it doesn’t matter. If you search the forum, sone folks use jeep Cherokee passenger side manifolds the can be modified with a little grinding to be 2 1/4...

    Brighter Dash / Gauge lights..?

    Tons of cheap LEDs on Amazon. Just pick one with good reviews.

    Burnt wire

    Could be the fusible link. That’s what it looks like being a little way from the bulkhead connector. Often the connectors in the bulkhead connection overheat and melt stuff, usually due to corrosion. There are basically three wires that usually get heat damage near the bulkhead connector. 1...

    340 vs 360 confirmation

    I took the headers off my 69 Cuda with a 360. They drug over every bump. I enjoyed removing them….. I used the 72-73 340 exhaust manifolds, they fit great and work great for a streeter. I doubt that you would notice any difference other than your wallet.

    Disc Brake conversion power master cylinder question

    My 69 Barracuda has an SSBC power disc brake conversion. It still has drum brakes on the back. It is a corvette master cylinder and a GM brake booster with an adjustable proportioning valve on the rear brake line. This was installed by the previous owner. The rear wheel cylinders were leaking...

    AC system update

    I did the retrofit with parts from another car. I like how it turned out, but it was a lot of work. If you have a 70 up car, it isn’t as bad as 69 back. The 70 up belt system is pretty simple and parts are available. The 69 back ac engine set up is complicated and parts are really hard to...

    Went to Daryl Starbird car show in Tulsa this weekend

    I heard Daryl was there, but did not see him. He is in his 90s I heard.

    Went to Daryl Starbird car show in Tulsa this weekend

    Lots of nice cars, many cool Mopars. Demolition derby, Rat rods, burn out contest, mini bike races, Hooning. About as much fun as a redneck adult teenager can have….

    AC system update

    I bought an entire factory ac salvaged out of a 71 dart for my 69 Cuda. I thought it would be a lot cheaper. It was, it only wound up costing me about $500 when I was done, however I think I had about $5000 in sweat equity. I probably spent way over 100 hours on it. From that vantage point, the...

    AC system update

    Ouch, the price has really gone up since I looked at those a few years back.

    69 Dart 360 exhaust

    Just another data point, but I found Waldron was half price of accurate a years back. Small family run outfit with a few month flowtime, but the quality was great. Shipped the full length pipes fastenal.

    What are you using for 8 3/4 pinion seal?

    Yeah, I did the soaking in oil & thought I was pretty careful putting it in. Drives me crazy when I replace one leaking seal with another leaking seal. But now I have a lift which makes it so much easier. I think the rubber seal & the sleeve will solve my problem. Along with checking the vent

    No, that is a great suggestion!

    69 Dart 360 exhaust

    I used these manifolds on my 69 360 barracuda. They work great. I have power steering and brakes. I used stock exhaust pipes I ordered from Waldron. You just have to make sure you order the head pipes for manifolds you are using if you go that route. The 72 to 74 manifolds are the ones I used...

    noisy air compressor

    Seems like my old compressor with the belt drive was a lot quieter than the direct drive pancake one I have.

    What are you using for 8 3/4 pinion seal?

    I replaced my pinion seal on my 742 case 8 3/4 rear end awhile back and it is leaking again. I took out a leather seal and replaced it with a new leather seal. Is there a better seal, or a trick I don’t know?
