MEMBERS Project Cars in Progress / My 73 Duster Build
« on: November 28, 2008, 11:50:34 AM »
I wish I could have kept my '72 Duster, but I don't have the experience or money to fix a car that is totally shot.  Love the Lil Red and that Duster looks awesome ....That 40 isn't too shabby either

So today I decided to start her up since I haven't in a couple days.  She started right up and to my surprise the headlights even decided to work   Granted I still don't have dash lights or brake lights.  I'm almost starting to wonder if my dash bulb is burned out, since my blinker lights and high beam dash light both work fine...

The 3 blind mice left for Hobby's house this morning, not quite on schedule...but close enough for government work  

We hit 287, we were making good time and then....
So a quick phone call to Steve, who now had to unload a certain Duster   and come pick up a 5,000 lb paperweight.  The Mighty Dodge pulled the beached whale back to Wharton, where we all met Hemi John...who with Hobby, diagnosed the thrown chain. 
So Mobby, doing what he does best, took us all for pizza.  We pulled the New Yorker towards home, which is now residing at P's house...  After a detour to show Hobby the progress on my Fury.  Hobby's charm and wit got him out of a speeding ticket.  Good times were had by all, except Mobby, who's hole is now almost to china

Does anybody make custom fit trunk seals?  I've seen a few on ebay
but I'm not sure if I should even bother.  Would this suffice or should I look into something better?

Well I got 'er rolling, but I don't have brake lights, I could try to rig it up like Mobby did to his just for the trip up...Unless you have a better idea for me to try

Today I attempted to check out what could be wrong with my electrical...  I first checked the fuse block and noticed that the Instrument panel fuse was blown and of course I didn't have one handy, so I had to take a trip to Napaland   Got home and popped it in and and and  nothing   I find it odd that I have front parking lights and my rear lights come on when I put the headlights on, but the headlights just don't want to come on   My blower for the A/C + heat doesn't seem to work either, I can hear the doors open but no blower  

As of right now I'm fresh out of things to check without ripping the dash apart...

Oh and Steve, the wire that looks semi melted on the bulkhead is indeed black and it does seem to be fatter than the rest

I've pulled the bulkhead off, cleaned it, and put vasoline on it.  It looks like one of the connections might have melted slightly (middle plug top right connection)  My blinkers work in the front and back, the dome light and occasionally the trunk light comes on if u touch the socket to ground it   I think theres a bad ground some place...just don't know where to start.

Well I installed the pertronix conversion and put on a new coil.  She started up but kept stalling.  Mobby adjusted the mixture screws on my carb and now she's running great.  Next thing to do is figure out my electrical issue (no headlights, brake lights, dash lights)

Yeah I rebuilt the carb, was actually quite fun .  Not sure how soon I'm going to register it, I'd like to get 'er running a bit better before I attempt to drive it...  Also, I'm not sure how safe it would be to drive with a rejected sticker from almost a year ago

Will the stock 318 manifolds fit with 360 heads?

Tech- - Engine / 360 Heads On A 318?
« on: October 26, 2008, 02:11:17 PM »
Stock look for the exhaust tips?  Yeah I wanna keep 'em pointed down like the stock one, don't think 2 chrome tips would look right...I dunno just my 2 cents

General Tech / TTI headers/exhaust
« on: October 26, 2008, 02:01:05 PM »
After browsing various sites for headers + exhaust systems, TTI seems to be the overall best for the headers.

2.5" should be plenty for a 318

They even have the Torque Shaft Assemblies for the driver's side header

Anybody have any other suggestions or ever used these guys?
