Title: 76NYB 4spd
Post by: A. Lance Espinosa on February 09, 2011, 12:31:18 PM
Put in a hydraulic clutch in a 4spd trans hooked to a 440 today. Should have it driving in a day or two.
Had to make a little space in the bellhousing for the haydraulic lines nipples.
Always something on these custom jobs...
 
Should be fun to race my stock 77 NYB 440 3spd auto 273 rear and the 4spd 400hp 355 rear NYB.
 
I'm sure you'll see that on Youtube.

Yes, wht did they do drop the sub-frame on the box with the dash pad?
The drivers side should be a little floopy with out the frame under it.
I'll dig the other pad out and send you some pics.
Found some bucket seats for the 76 project.

He got so fed up with his 76NYB he sold it to me cheap. I put in the hyd clutch in today..
Had too much room so it over expaned and pop !
Time for a new blater.
 
Steve got a dash from me that got squished in the mail.
 
And I want buckets and a consol in the 76.
 
My 77 will stay more or less stock.

That doesn't sound like him. . .  He's typically more stubborn that that

This way I take the heat for all the Fu$%-ups from now on. Like blowing out the blater in the clutch.
Got the dash out, it has been painted, but is not chrushed or ripped. My Kodak is mia...
Send pics soon.

Got it 95% there !  ! ! ! Have to make the push rod longer, so it should be on the road next week.....Should be.......
This weekend is the only Mopar show in my area, @ Wells Chrysler Dodge Jeep.
I'm taking my 63 and 77 New Yorkers wish I could take the 76.
 
I'm sill going to pull the St. Reg top off and make it a hard top.
But I am going to put in a consol for the shifter were as Stan wasnt going to do so.
 
Sooo close to getting it on the road.
 
Anyone have a late 70s 727 3spd in case I cant get it to work ? ? ?

My guess is Stan was so embarassed over this whole 4 spd NYB debacle that he went into hiding.

No reason to though, we all screw up,  all the time!!!
