Steve, talked to my daughter today and will be seeing her in late Jan or early Feb if you can wait until then. Can you send me a pic of the fender? The part I am most interested in is behind the wheel at the bottom where they all rust out. Thanks

Cbarge... I'll definatly take a look at your thread. I've always done the mechanical stuff, this is my first attempt at body work so I lack all the tools and knowledge.
 
Polarco...I'll keep the fender offer in mind for the left side.  I hate to hack up a good fender just to use the bottom 4 inches, but it may be an offer I can't refuse.

Flywheel...flexplate...tomato...tomahto same diff. I'm still stuck in a 4 spd world. Pull the cover off and see if the "FLEXPLATE" or converter has any runout. Look at the damper and see if its running true. Exhaust loose at the manifold flange? Other than that anything else I can think of is inside.  Listen with a stethoscope and see if you can isolate a location.
 
60 degrees up here today.  I know...still cold by your "new" standards.  You can get my expert opinion in person and hear me rehash all the things you've probably already thought of for the price of a plane ticket.

Stan, Is it a steady vibration or does it change with engine speed? Is it still there if the car is in neutral? Did you mark the torque converter position to the flywheel when you dis-assembled it? I found that a vibration can occur if they are not put back the same way they came out.  It can also eat up your front tranny seal.

Nope, I'm guessing the 4212 is possibly a run number. I'll let you know when I get the new one if I picked the right one.  67Newport2008-12-02 18:29:47

Update on the brake booster. 
 
I found a tag on the bottom. After gingerly cleaning it up so I could read it, it says.....
Chry-Dodge-Ply
L.H.D.
1967-C
C-4212-C
 
Will that help define what I have?

Some thoughts Stan. Was the engine completely assembled when it was turning freely? Did it turn  complete revolutions? What did you install after that? Did the tranny bolt up easily without binding? Starter motor jammed against the flywheel? Pull the plugs and see if its easier without compression. Were you missing any empty beer cans after the install?   67Newport2008-11-30 07:59:37

Tech- - FUEL / Our old cars and alky gas
« on: November 29, 2008, 01:14:16 PM »
Heres my two cents on the subject.
 
Most gas (at least in the east) now has 10% ethanol in it. I work in a parts store and have heard many complaints about it making water in the fuel. Some cars must use dry gas all the time or their cars run like cr-p. It also reduces your gas mileage and increases the cost of the gas. Don't you just love government mandates? 
 
Here a couple of quotes about ethanol...
 
Oh, yes. Ethanol can't travel in pipelines along with gasoline, because it picks up excess water and impurities. As a result, ethanol needs to be transported by trucks, trains, or barges, which is more expensive and complicated than sending it down a pipeline. As refiners switched to ethanol this spring, the change in transport needs has likely contributed to the rise in gas prices. Some experts argue that the U. S. doesn't have adequate infrastructure for wide ethanol use."[/color]
 
and
 
Surprise, surprise, it isn't. The move this spring by more regions to use ethanol means that demand has spiked, driving up prices. On Monday, the New York harbor price was around $3 per gallon compared with about $2.28 for gasoline (before being mixed with ethanol). In other words, for now ethanol is helping to increase prices at the pump, not to push them down."[/color]
 
one more...
 
Yes. Some ethanol skeptics have even argued that the process involved in growing grain and then transforming it into ethanol requires more energy from fossil fuels than ethanol generates. In other words, they say the whole movement is a farce".[/color]

Great info, thanks Cbarge,
I'm going to go with the Midland Ross. It looks identical, has the same mounting bracket on the engine side of the firewall, and correct vacuum port location. Thats enough points for me to give it a try.
