Here's the latest news; The vinyl top was going on today!








The hood is back in place, and I think another buff, then clearcoat and final buffing needs o be done to it.



Found a problem with my plan for using the '73 booster for the upgrade;  The pushrod is longer than the unit it is replacing.


Bummer, dude.  So, youse guys, if ANYONE of you NEEDS a booster for a '73, let me know, capisch?


In OTHER bad news, my windshield has a crack that is in the top right corner AND apparently, when a previous repair was made to it to stop leaking, there are two areas on the backside of the top edge that have chips of glass missing from somebody prying on it, and I'm probably looking at replacing it ..oh joy



I was going to let this ding be, but now that I've found the other damaged spots and the crack, no way.



I think I've found someone to take care of my upholstery needs, and I'll be talking with him tomorrow.  I don't plan on doing anything to the door panels other than maybe dyeing the carpeting, buffing some brightwork and having a small tear on the passenger door fixed.
Good thing I have the Armada to load all this stuff in!  Tomorrow I'll dig out the rear seat and back from storage to add to this.

It's kinda funny, both of the recommended places I contacted for upholstery have kinda given me the brush-off/have been too busy to take in my stuff, but the guy I'm going to see tomorrow has some time, and I first saw his sign last October so I've kept him in mind.

They took 3 B-29's, actually.  But converted all the specs and fasteners to Metric system stuff.

What carb are you running?
Not that it really matters...I would recommend filling up the float bowl in the carb.The engine should run long enough at idle to prime the fuel pump.
There are vent tube(s) at the top of the carb that go to where the float is.Use a small hose/tube/straw and funnel and pour gas in there.Hit the gas and check if the gas squirts into the engine..It squirts? OK,fire 'er up!
You can pour gas down in the carb's butterfly but she will not run long enough.Not to mention flooding it or getting the plugs wet by pouring too much in. 
Hope this helps.Should work.It did for me on my 383 after a 31 year slumber..

TY Ard, WOOOF!!

Not seen on that list are the work for the engine and transmission, a dash upgrade I'm thinking of doing, and having a dual exhaust set-up put on it.
" OY!"  That was my credit card crying out in pain

Here's a tip: The Bendix part number is for a rear wheel cylinder with a 7/8" inner diameter, and I got these to help with balancing the brake system now that I have single piece '73 rotors up front.

The master cylinder/booster assembly is not yet installed, as we are waiting on front lines and a hold-off valve (I think Inline Tubes is where Ed ordered the front brake lines from, not sure about which vendor for the hold-off valve is sourced from), so the brakes are currently inop.

Oh, and a listing of what Ed *thinks* still needs to be done by him


The grille detail will consist of merging two halves to make one good whole, and the bumpers had to be sublet to ANOTHER plater since the original guy didn't have drums big enough for my bumpers, as they would get scratched upon removal.

I'm going to give my painting skills a try (HA! ) and detail the trim pieces that have the tri-color medallion.

Woo hoo!! Take a looky!  New Firestone FR380 tires in 235/75-15 mounted to the cop wheels I have, so the Vectors don't get damaged whilst work is still on going.  PLUS, the Just Suspension front end pieces are installed as are the '73 disc knuckles, LCA , Mobby's rotors  I bought off him last year, new front hoses and new calipers.

Tech- - FUEL / Help Needed-68 Newport Gas Tank
« on: April 30, 2008, 08:03:43 PM »

The harm is your tank, or some part of the fuel line system, will collapse in upon itself due to the vacuum created/low pressure vs outside pressure.  Find out how many vents your tank has so you can get the right one.

General Tech / Still Make a Trailer Hitch for a 68 Fury Wagon?
« on: April 28, 2008, 01:53:24 PM »

I found in the back of my 1967 Chrysler owners manual detailed instructions and specs for a trailer hitch, and scanned it.  It is over 203K, so I can't upload it to here, but give me an email addy I can send it to for ya, then you can print it and take it to a U-haul to get something cobbled up for you.

I also received one unexpected part, a 5/16" to 3/8" adapter to run between the fuel filter and the fuel line, which looks really nice (even though it's still in the bag).



Well?  Whatcha think?  It's a '73 vintage 440 AT Federal Emissions carb, 6322.  Anyone looking for a 750 Edelbrock Performer w/ electric choke??  I've got one for sale with lotsa goodies for it, too.

I finally received my rebuilt TQ and hand-made 2 piece upper fuel line with AN-6 fittings and a 0-15psi gauge to mount into a log.  This stuff looks SWEET!  Take a gander for yerself....
