    Holley Sniper return fuel line

    I ran 3/8 flex tube to the front cowl left side next to the pcu for the 392. I had to remove my original can up front as the fuse block and wiring took its place. The sniper is ok by I have overfilling issues now. You can hardly see the vent assembly I used. I actually took apart the vacuum...

    What Are You Doing To/With Your Car Today?

    Just wrapped up installing a headlight relay kit. Made a difference but it's hard to tell. Drivers light just on battery power. First pic before second after. I'm tired so can't tell if it is brighter. None the less it wil be less of a load to the gauges.

    Treatment for cancer is kicking my ass

    Keep your spirit highmy friend. You have people to watch over for a long time coming. The way I handled going through a rough time like this (brain tumor removal) was to stop, think and watch my little ones. Watching them be curious little beavers took my mind off the aches and stress I was...

    What did you do for chassis stiffening?

    Firm feel front tubular sway bar 1 /8" and their tubular upper control arms. That coupled with the frame connectors, inner fender supports, and torque boxes from US Car Tool have made my Cuda handle like a dream. I also have the firm feel stage 3 power steering gear box. Had the car for 36yrs...

    Hemi Radiator Options

    I used the radiator supply house. It's a great fit and works wonderful though the flow for the tranny sucks so I had to put in a alternate fan controlled cooler for that. I have it programmed to kick on at 190f and she never reached 200 yet. I bought bouchlen hoses for the tight fit.

    What Are You Doing To/With Your Car Today?

    I showed my brother how to start it with the new anti theft device for when I pass, which is coming in short time. Long story but he appreciated the efforts to ensure he does not get confused with the new wiring and such.

    Truck shopping

    Go with a dodge and buy the maxi care package so you'll never ever have a worry about anything. A simple 100 dollar deductible and your set. It's so worth the 2-3k up front cost. Especially when older and retired though I'm not. I have the maxi care on all my Chrysler's. Used the warranty cost...

    Replacement Fuel Tanks

    Your probably right. I'm sure I set the height correctly so I'll measure the signal to see what I got coming in. For now I know I get 17.6mpg on this new hemi so I'll just keep an eye on the miles when the gauge hits empty.

    Replacement Fuel Tanks

    Great comments. Yes I bought the Cuda version. Gauge worked great before with old tank. She's well grounded. Yes the pump kicks off but the new tube is designed differently that. The original so I just keep and eye on it.

    Replacement Fuel Tanks

    I have the Tanks Inc one in my Cuda. It's pretty quite and delivers what I need to the 392 with no issues. Buy the GM style fuel filter and plug away. I also installed new year one fuel lines while I was at it. Only probs I have is that my gas gauge is off a lot and it tends to overfill easily...

    Installed (80%) the hydro boost braking system. Looking forward to stopping on a fine line. It's tough on the linkage but connecting directly to the pedal arm did the trick.

    TTI exhaust, is it worth it??

    Tti 3 inchers are on my Cuda but it has an awefuly loud bellow noise at cruising speed. It's mind numbing. I gotta find a quitter muffler and sacrifice the low pitch Rumble.

    What is the next guy gonna say?

    After many a discussions with my brother I have finally found out the truth to why I found corn stalk crap wedged into areas I didn't know existed until the panels started coming off. Guess when your 18 in the 80's, high, and jumping railroad tracts one tends to bounce off the road and into a...
