Whose 65 vert is that on the right?
If you mean the maroon one, that's mine.
Jason,  what's the yellow '30s rod that your neighbor has?

I'm still working on labelling pictures, and was using google maps & street view to verify some locaitons.
Discovered that during the 2009 dream cruise, they filmed most of Woodward Ave between 9 mile road in Ferdale Mi and downtown Pontiac Mi.
If that's not cool enough, I found a shot of my car parked along the route. :),+Bloomfield+Hills,+Oakland,+Michigan+48302&sll=42.603879,-83.268707&sspn=0.007281,0.021887&ie=UTF8&hq=&hnear=W+Square+Lake+Rd+%26+Woodward+Ave,+Bloomfield+Hills,+Oakland,+Michigan+48302&ll=42.603136,-83.263535&spn=0,0.021887&z=16&layer=c&cbll=42.603208,-83.263606&panoid=-aztwHKQxJsiMDvJ-kaFuw&cbp=12,350.67,,0,8.09

General Mopar Discussions / 57 or 58 Chrysler 300?

Thanks for all the info.  I've been working on labelling pictures I took last year, and until I got to this one, hadn't realised how little difference there was between the two years.
Pulled out my video, and from the rear shot, it's a '57 right?

Is there any way to tell which year this one is?

My favorite is the woman who gets yanked off her feet by the gas pump, but then gets up and tries again.

If you look close it's probably slipping when it goes from 9 to 10 (and 19 to 20 etc)  Mine does that once in a while.   I guess turning 3 drums instead of 2 is just enough extra force that it will hang up for a mile or two before flipping over.

Discalimer #1  This info again comes from the parts book, I'm certainly willing to believe it contains errors. I'm also not positive this means cars were actually built with these motors, simply that mounts/brackets were designed for them. 
Disclaimer #2 Pretty sure this info is for US cars only, and that Canadian and export cars may have different motors.
Disclaimer #3  This is 1965 only.  Don't know nothin' but no Fusey cars (or even later slabs) :P
All Imperials had 413
Chrysler - 413 or 383
Dodge C body - 426 wedge, 413, 383, or 318 (poly)
Plymouth C body - 426 wedge, 413, 383, 318(poly) 225 (slant6)
B-bodies - All the big blocks from the 426(both kinds) to the 361,  318 (poly) 273 (LA) and 225 (slant6)
A-bodies - 273 (LA) 225 or 170 (slant6)
So, to get back to the original question:
Chrysler and Dodge C's seem to use the same subframe and motor mounts.
Dodge had brackets to install both 318 (poly) and big block V-8s
B-body cars use the same brackets for both 318 (poly) and 273 (LA) small block V-8s
Doesn't this imply that using Dodge C body small block brackets you could install an LA small block into a '65 Chrysler?

Didn't the '65 Plymouth and Dodge C's offer the poly 318?

I have no hands on experience with this, but looking at the numbers in the parts book, this is what I'm seeing.
Dodge and Chrysler Cs have only one subframe number regardless of which V-8
Plymouth Fury has 2 different numbers for 6 or 8 cylinder subframes (both are different number than the Dodge/Chrysler frame)
The rubber motor mounts are the same numbers for all V-8 Plymouth, Dodge, Chrysler Cs
The brackets from motor mount to the engine block are different numbers between SB and BB

Longer spring shackles should be available at your local parts store.  Check the bolt size that you need.  There's a limit to how much they will help, but probably will get you that 1 or 2" you need.

Looks like a good family hauler.
I'm curious about that extra panel & window between the front and rear doors on the pass side.  I've noticed some of the older vans were that way, but don't think I've seen it on any of the newer ones.

Tech- - ELECTRICAL / Ignition Switch Light - '65 Chrysler
« on: October 14, 2010, 08:19:41 PM »
It's not a whole ring, just one or two gaps in the housing.  There might be something that has to be properly lined up when you screw in the bezel, but I don't remember the details.
It only lights up with the switch in the parking light position, and doesn't do much to actually light the switch.

My best was 17.6 and I think your setup will beat that, but not by much.

Tech- - STEERING WHEELS AND SUSPENSION / Spindles & Bearings ?
« on: October 09, 2010, 09:33:44 PM »
With the big breaker bar I was able to break the rust loose, and once it started turning,  it came out no problem.
The problem with the upper ball joint, is that I couldn't get the right angle with my puller.  Ended up taking out the cam bolts and taking the upper arm, ball joint, and spindle home as one unit.
Once clamped to the bench the ball joint separated from the spindle much easier.
So at this point all the big pieces are back in place, and I just need to get the drum ready and put the little bits back together.
