      Took both headers off to do the two bad freeze out plugs.
      Whew that was fun.
      Still have to get passenger side removed being stubborn and the wife called dinner. So called it quits for the night

          Got the starter but decided to do the two freeze out plugs.
          One down one to go
          Nasty I know but gonna try this first.
          Anybody have a set of manifolds?
          or can I buy a set of headers that will bolt right up to the existing exhaust?

                            So i have been having a hell of a time finding a Brake master.
                            I finally purchased a 73 & up which is .094 bore orig was 1 inch pretty much exactly the same.

                              After getting the master in I noticed my calipers were frozen.
                              I Bought a rebuilt set from a member there on the way.
                              After getting scammed from a guy on Facebook who said he had a set for $300 oh well live and learn.
                              I tried freeing them up for days.
                              Got one loose and soaking the other in diesel.
                              While I was under there I did stabilizer links and shocks.
                              Ordered pitman Arm and cleaned and painted center link while it was apart.
                              I also changed out the rear package tray to a repop looks exactly the same REM

                              I also ordered Rotors & pads
                              And RH studs for driver side hub have to find some lugs too that match other 3 wheels or I might buy a new set.
                              The drivers rear was already converted to Right hand.

                                Got my new tires
                                I bought some 14 inch bfg’s and polished the wheels as best I could.
                                Cleaned up inside of wheels for weights to stick also.
                                they look good for now one day I’ll get a set of cragars

                                  Took it for a ride to get gas and that’s when the New mopar performance ECM took a crap.
                                  Called co. And they sent a New one.

                                    While I was in there doing the freeze plugs the second time because I found a third one.
                                    I painted the block alittle and threw in the New carter fuel pump.
                                    Made new gaskets for the oil adapter and also chucked in the 1 wire.
                                    I don’t recommend trying to do these in the car unless you have alittle skill and lots of patience.
                                    I also put new header gaskets and collector gaskets in.
                                    Id like to get New headers or find manifolds and then New Exhaust. It still has the Orig Mufflers on it.

                                          Thanks to Jim V
                                          I Now have Brakes!
                                          Yes the studs were pressed on!
                                          On a sad note having fuel issues
                                          I think I need a New Tank.
                                          So disappointed. Thought I was gonna get away without doing it.
                                          Feel like giving up anyone wanna take over this project?
