haha thanks man, appreciate it.  that rockauto link is awesome, that place has all kinds of crap.

as for the 4bbl swap, do i need to change the manifold or is there some sort of adapter i'll need or is it a bolt up affair?

i'll add this to the thread for anyone else looking for info.  found a thread with a bunch of info on the 2245 holley.  figured i'd share.

So i created a intro thread in the noob section and got some helpful answers.  i wanted to try and get some more info on some of those points and felt it more appropriate to start a thread in the technical section.  I have a 1974 Newport with the 400ci and the 2bbl Holley.  If anyone can offer any info, or links, i would greatly appreciate the help.  Any info would be great, really, i can't find much of anything online.  I also listed a few things below that i had some specific questions about, thanks in advance to anyone who can help.

  • oil capcity
  • links to info/parts for the Holley 2bbl or....
  • is there a common 4bbl swap? (someone mentioned it in my intro thread, any help would be awesome)
  • source for a good service manual
thanks in advance.

thanks man.  i appreciate the warm welcome.

i did have a few questions that you guys might be able to help me with.  just to preface, i've been working on cars as log as i've been driving them and consider myself to be a decent shadetree wrench so i'm not afraid to tackle most duties (unless i can't find or afford the tool needed lol).

first, any tips or info on tuning the carb?  it's the holley 2bbl 2245.  it seems to be loading up a bit (slight hesitaion at stoplights after idleing).  it also wants to stall when the a/c is on.  otherwise, it starts and runs fine.  i'm sure i could get in there figure it out but i wanted to do the proper research before even touching it.  to be honest, the last carb i tuned was over 10 years ago and was attached to a 1600 beetle.

2nd, as far as PS and rear-end fluids, do they require and weird-ass, mopar specific juices?  this might sound retarded to some but coming from german cars, you might understand my apprehention.  just want to be sure.

Hey guys, been digging thru the forum and wanted to drop in and say hi.  I just picked up a 74 Newport (400) and have been searching for a good forum to get info, parts leads, ect.  so far, i've found tons of suppliers and great info. 

this is my first mopar.  to be honest, it's my first non VW since i started driving 13+ years ago.  i had been searching for a creampuff for under $1500 and found this beauty and had to get it.  i'm the 2nd owner, not to sure on actual mileage (speedos have been swapped a few times) but the condition and records included with the car show it was well maintained and it has been a great car so far, starts everytime, a/c works great.  i plan to keep it pretty much original with maybe some suspension work to get lower.

any info or suggestions for other places/forums to check out would be great. 

on with the pics...








what i was driving (02 passat wagon), gonna miss her...
