Re: A little help on my build please/ frame suspension question

The Mopar springs are more / thicker on the Pass side, and at rest they often sit high on that side to resist torque on launch. That is also why when the battery is relocated to the trunk on race cars it is placed on the Pass side at the Rear. I never knew they were thicker on the passenger side. E...

Re: A little help on my build please/ frame suspension question

Do the springs have more leaves on one side?
I think the hemi springs have an extra leaf. If so that could be the cause.
Doubt it's anything to worry about. I think plenty of Mopar's have a bit of tilt to one side. My old Charger did!

Re: Taking some parts to the Nats

Hi Stu and Rob,

I'm interested in the 727 dipstick and tube and the kickdown linkage. I'm not going to the nats but I'm in no rush. Any chance you can post?

Cheers,

Matt.

Re: VW type 1 gearbox rebuild

A second hand box maybe the way to go but I don't want to end up with a load of junk ones laying around. I already have plenty of Mopar stuff getting in the way :D

Re: VW type 1 gearbox rebuild

Found a thread on latebay from 2018 recommending Cogbox so they were still in business then but I can't find anymore information than that. No number or address. Seems to be a lot of businesses named Cog box though!

Maybe they've shut up shop?

Re: VW type 1 gearbox rebuild

Thanks fellas. It's a 1600 twin port with the 1500 box for better ratios, was that way when we bought it about 12 years ago. It's my wife's car that I've driven twice in that time, 1st was 10 yrs ago, 2nd was a few weeks ago when it started running rough and I realised the box was knackered. It has ...

VW type 1 gearbox rebuild

Is there anyone in the club that can rebuild or recommend someone that can rebuild a VW type 1 transmission? It's an AC code box which I think is a 1970 box although the car is a '61. I've tried The Engine Shop which specialise in VWs but they don't do anything as early as '61 and weren't sure what ...

About £50 the pair. DSC_1148.JPG
That's a very cool looking truck Mandie has got there!

Re: Restoration thread 1969 St Albans charger

This is all very similar to what I have been doing although my roof panel and roof structure only needed a minor repair. The colour scheme is the same, orange and black and will most likely end up satin black for the time being. I'm 2 1/2 yrs in to my project so I think you have done extremely well ...

I decided to pull the engine out in the end to use in another project. The shell will be going off to Silverlake for scrap this week.
