    Hey all,

    New to the forum. Dad's 67 Barracuda is now mine, which means I've inherited the problems. It's been in the family since 91. Currently having overheating problems. Originally a 273 car, currently has a 340.

    Welcome. Needs a bigger radiator I'm sure. There was quite a difference between the 273 radiators and the later 340 ones.

    My guess is timing, I already put a bigger radiator in, as well as a new thermostat. It's due for new plugs and wires, and I need to put a timing light on and see what it looks like
