    I own a 1970 Dodge Dart swinger, It was a /6 and I'm now slowly turning it in to a v8 car and I just need a little guidance from you all. I've purchased a donor 1975 dart 4 door custom with blown up v8 but all the parts I need to make mine a v8 with disc brakes. Everything should swap out from one to the other right? If not what road blocks may I run into?.... I'm pulling complete front suspension and k member out and steering box and pump. Do I need the column or will the original one be fine.?. Also brake line master cylinder the proportion valve for brakes.?.

        Everything will fit, just bolt the parts on. If both cars had power steering then the column will work fit no problem. If is was manual the steering shaft will be different but they will swap out too. As for the brakes use the master cylinder and the proportion valve from the donor car. This is an easy swap I'm sure you car do it. Take pictures before you take them apart. That might came in handy.

          Fantastic. Nice to score a donor car, post pics of the build.
