www.alcanspring.com   Write to Charles and tell him Steve Hobby from NJ sent you.  We just exchanged a couple of emails about springs.
 
VERY nice product.  400 buck a pair is what I paid last year
 
 
 
thanks for the info!  And I would love to see any pics you have.   I plan on ditching the stock rear brakes and axles all together.  I will try to post some pics myself when I get that far.

Where do you recommend getting new HD leaf springs and a front disc brake conversion kit for my 62 Newport?  Probably gonna need a front end kit too.  Any advice is appreciated.  Tony

Tech- - Engine / Ignition control boxes. Color = ?
« on: October 21, 2008, 06:04:55 AM »
I have run the FBO, chrome and orange boxes and luckily have never been stranded.  I wouldn't run the orange in anything but a stock application.  I have run the chrome and FBO boxes in 500-550 hp street cars and never really noticed a difference between the two.  The chrome was run with a blaster 2 coil and FBO with a FBO coil.   My 62 Newport build is going to get the full FBO ignition and as always, I will have my backup orange and chrome boxes in my box of just in case's in the trunk.

Don't know about the market value on that particular car, but it sure is gorgous.   If the guys really needs to thin the herd and he's a collector (with mega bucks), maybe he'll take a serious offer more in your range....

Howdy - I'm new to full sized/c bodies, but have been a long time fan.  I love the looks and styling, but I don't think anyone will disagree, the performance from the factory leaves lots to be desired. 
 
My new venture is a 62 Newport and my plan is to keep it looking stock but want it to perform too...particularly at the strip.  I'm shooting for mid 11's or better.  Building a 512" stroker with CNC Stealth heads and a relatively mild solid flat tappet cam.   Also running a CH 28 dual quad intake with 2 600 eddy carbs.  Going to keep it looking stock with the stock 300 dual quad aircleaners and no unecessary chrome, billet or braided stuff.  Will run the factory auto pushbutton with some strengthening mods of course and  a 9 1/2" converter, and rear will be a 3.73 sure grip. 
I plan to run headers (not sure which ones just yet) and a full 3" exhaust out back. 
 
Who else has built a fast full sized/C body and please share your combination.  Also, if you have any secrets to share on reducing weight (while keeping stock appearance) I would love to hear about it. 
 
Lastly, where can I find a good super stock type leaf spring for my car?? 
 
Thanks!
Tony

Tech- - Engine / Headers for 62 Chrysler

(quite a few bottlenecks added because of the pushed-in 2.5" bends)[/quote]
 
Thats a great idea cutting off the shorty collector and adding a 3".  How long of a 3" collector do you think would fit before running into something or needing to make a turn?  Do you think there would be any clearance issues with the 3 bolt flange?  BTW, you have some great pictures to share.  Thank you!

Thanks for the pics!  Are those 1 3/4 tubes?  They have got to be much better than the manifolds.  Do you see any problem in bolting up and running a 3" exhaust??

Tech- - Engine / 413 Dual quad air cleaners
« on: September 13, 2008, 03:34:50 AM »
Howdy - I have been looking around on the-bag for dual quad aircleaners that came on  413's.  Oval and gold in color.  Any idea where I could find a set, or are they classified under the category unobtanium?  Thanks!

Tech- - Engine / Headers for 62 Chrysler

Thanks for the link, Butch.  Those are pretty small for headers, but probably a good compromise between power, affordability and simplicity.  Problem is I like lots of power, always spend too much money and tend to do things the hard way...

Tech- - Engine / Headers for 62 Chrysler

The headers used on the 1960 New Yorker in the link above is Hooker HED 78070.   They are shorties.  They have got to be better than any exhaust manifold, but still it would be nice to have a full length header that would  fit without major modifications.   If the only restriction on the drivers side is the brake lines, I would think the lines could be relocated, no??  I wonder if A body TTI's would work?  They hug the block pretty close.    I know they can be custom made, but its big bucks around here.  1500 and up.

Howdy Butch - Sold the 4 door to a guy from Australia and he's currently running it in Hot Rod Drag week.   I have my eye on a 62 Newport (always love the 62 300, but a Newport will do just fine).   I want to put a nice stroker in it but was hoping not to spend 1500 on custom headers.  Don't know if the little block huggers or tri-ys will do it.  Then again, my 4 door is running HP manifolds and has gone 11.50's.  If the Newport is really 3800lbs as I have heard, that is only a couple hundred pounds heavier than my 63 4 door.  Maybe the shorties will be OK?  Hows the hemifury doing these days?  Man I love that car!

Hi everyone - I'm new here and was hoping one of you may be able to help me out.  I'm wondering what headers will fit a B or RB engine in a 62 Newport/300?   It currently has a 383 out of a 68 model car with factory 62 383 log manifolds.  I am clueless as to what will or won't fit, and also why they will or won't fit, so any help is appeciated.  Yes, I'm a newbie.
