I only paid $650 for the car...so I can't be picky.  I was just curious as to the amount of work and what was needed just in case I were to look into it eventually.

Sorry, it's got a 318.  I got a question tho, is there a way to convert it over to power brakes?  I think manual brakes gonna be rough for everyday driving

Haha...ya...about that.... I guess the guy I bought it from decided that he was going to wax it and not buff it off   Anyways, I've started to wipe it down some and man, what a difference.  Since it got dark so fast, tomorrow after work I have to take the air hose to the engine bay and blow out all of the acorns and whatnot from the critters that made it a home   Then if I have enough time and sunlight, I might give 'er a quick wash. 

As far as what I paid....I think I made up and then some for what I paid for the Duster

Ya when I pulled it out of the driveway to straighten 'er out, I noticed the brake pedal was hard as a rock and they didn't want to work too well.  Napa chassis parts okay aside from bushings or should I look into some other place for them?  Also, what were those Monroe shocks you told me to look into?  Magnums?  What about X or H pipe...or do you suggest just straight pipes with mufflers?

Well guys....I converted 
Picked her up today, actually Steve picked her up...I just went for the ride 





Notice the hole in the taillight assembly on the driver's side...







She even has the original trunk mat!


Little bit o' surface rust, but nothin a wire brush and some paint can't handle






Minor wear in the driver's seat






Needs a new headliner also




That's right only 38,000 original miles!!!

Tech- - ELECTRICAL / plugs
« on: July 26, 2008, 02:24:34 PM »
Well, I took 'er for a spin once ya left Hobby.....what a mistake that was.  I didn't make it but maybe 1/4 a mile and she stalled on me   I called Mobby and let him know that the Holley was comin off ASAP ( )  so hopefully on Monday we're gonna do a little switcheroo and throw on a nice Edelbrock.  Hopefully that'll smooth things out and fix that vacuum leak between the carb and manifold....

Road in 'er today....yeah he's still drivin it   Drove fine except from the horrid idle and the fact that she stalled on us a few times....   When he really gets on 'er she chugs along, I'm not an expert on cars, but it almost sounds like it's not gettin' enough fuel or air when taking off.  And then when it does go, it doesn't seem to be burning what it is getting.  A lot of backfiring through the pipes.  Hobby, it's his only means of transportation right now

General Tech / /6 Headers and 2bbl intake Question
« on: June 05, 2008, 06:55:23 AM »

General Tech / /6 Headers and 2bbl intake Question
« on: June 02, 2008, 03:08:30 PM »
Unfortunately it doesn't include carb, he already sold that.  He said 260 for both and 30 shipping...the headers go for like 350 brand new from clifford and the intake is usually about 100, so I figured this is a pretty good deal.

General Tech / /6 Headers and 2bbl intake Question
« on: June 02, 2008, 02:41:50 PM »

Does $290 shipped for almost new headers and a Super Six 2 bbl intake for a /6 sound reasonable?  Any feedback would be nice, found somebody on another board selling and would like to give him an answer asap.  Thanks

Ya, we needs to get his carb settled first...he's got tons of other stuff he needs to do as well.  Just sounded a little weird and since Mobby never heard of it (he's my walkin book of car knowledge ) I wanted to make sure it was legitBigMike2008-05-09 10:33:48
