Re: Blue's Barracuda

Enough of sensible already, out with the 3.55's and in with the 4.10's. That should liven the bugger up...

Blue do you think that would be an easy mod?
Yes, should just be a case of chopping the old mount off and welding a couple of "ears" to the crossmember to accept the spool mount. Something like this...

Re: 64 Plymouth Belvedere post car

Personally I'd use the later style spool mount and mod the crossmember to suit.

Re: Hi! From new 69 charger owner & help request.

Yes it is, there's been container issues ever since the pandemic started, first they were in short supply and now you can't seem to get them landed. It was all very straight forward previously.

Re: Hi! From new 69 charger owner & help request.

Glad you got it sorted the end! There's been some huge delays recently with containers so it might be a while before you see your panels. The panels I bought in October have only landed this week.

Re: MAHLE cam bearings too big

I'd say if you can't turn it easily with the sprocket bolted to it it's too tight. You are not just reaming the bearings to size, you're also ensuring they are in line.

Re: MAHLE cam bearings too big

When you change cam bearings you need to use an old cam to ream them to size, they will be too tight otherwise.

Re: Canada Trip

As this is clearly not a penny pinching exercise, may I suggest a restored set of Keystone Kustomags?

Re: Blue's Barracuda

Thanks Dorian, hope you and the family are doing Ok. So, this is what progress looks like apparently, New bonnet on and a big old strip down to access the hinges so I can replace the standard springs with the new low tension ones. Online research suggest the new springs are actually standard fitment...
