Finishing up my new rear-end install. Before and After.
Finished it tonight.
So damned hot out in the shop I was forced inside to the computer/scanner. Scanning in a bunch of old photos I took while disassembling and cleaning parts...many moons ago!! It was so long ago, we didn't have digital photos and certainly not cell phones. I have several albums full of 35 mm prints that I took during disassembly.
Man O Man, first class finish on your Dart there. What year? '71 ???
It's a 1972 Dart. As in my screen name. Thanks. Im glad you like the paint job.
I'd like to see the engine in the car some year soon... you've only been posting pictures of it since Keith Richards was but a wee a lad.
I'm in no rush. One job at a time. My standards are pretty high. Trust me you will see the entire car when it's done.
Thanks. I'm having fun doing it..
I let the car rest today, it carried me to Carlisle and back, 2,730 miles without any issues. The car even got love from B and E body guys at one restaurant, they couldn't get enough of it! The whole trip was awesome, and a much needed break from my life as of late. I can't wait til next year's show.
Well I should have been under the hood figuring out my push rods but my daughter came out and asked if we could trim out the trunk. So we started doing that instead! Got the side panel templates done and traced on to hard board Cley
Worked on re-routing the heater hoses today. You’ll see in the pics just how lucky I got with the fitment of the adapter.
Got more parts in! Time to get back to work
Which radiator did you go with?
Champion CC375. Its a 26" b body radiator. I needed a driver side lower hose outlet for the 383 water pump
Started a few projects. ..the biggest being an electric fan swap. I was running a 2 fan system that I felt wasn't moving enough air...so I am swapping it out for a single Taurus fan. Not to mention I need to clean up my wiring. ...that is an AWESOME controller from Autocoolguy (Google it...) ...it "soft starts" the fan instead of nailing them full blast right off the start... Anyway, I had to trim some plastic and make some simple brackets. .. And as I figured, I'll have to trim more plastic to move the fan closer to the radiator to clear the water pump nose.... No big deal but it's well on the way to 100 degrees so I'll get back after it later... Jeff
Looking Good Jeff !
Nice work! The new fan looks like it should move some air!!! The dog days of summer are here, for sure.
Thanks guys! Other stuff on my list are:Oil changeInstall torque converter coverSome minor tweeking on my remote door locksDetail/clean engine and compartment Then drive the heck out of it! Jeff
Floorpan under the driver seat is messed up. Gonna see what I can do to drill the ends of the cracks then hammer it into shape. Going to have to pick up a little flux (capacitor) core welder real soon to do the floorpans. Before pics.
I am pretty sure I found the ends of the cracks. Can't be sure without magnafluxing it.
Not bad with a floorjack and a brick for the dolly and a clawhammer for my metalworking tools! Looking forward to finishing up the cabin sheetmetal and getting some Dynamat in here.
Ordered 4 Goodyear E7014 tires today.
Installed the drive shaft ,I bought from ragtopfury and transmission lines from uline it. I also tore up rotten flooring from my trailer and installed new 2" oak boards
Finally tore into my truck after a month of looking at it.
