General Mopar Discussions / prices for 1961 Imperial 4-dr
« on: January 01, 2011, 11:45:06 AM »
Anyone a clue on recent sale prices for 61 4-dr hardtop Imperials?

I'm being offered a project car, and it is very much to my liking (4 doors, black).

I know parts can be costly and/or hard to find, but that wasnt much different for my 73 as well.

General Tech- - BRAKES / guidepins rear drum shoes
« on: September 12, 2010, 03:53:18 AM »
OK I have here a hardware kit for my 2" wide 11" rear drums.

Kit has the following numbers on it:

HW7134, Wagner F785458 Bendix H7134 Raybestos H7134 Eis H7134

According to various sources, it shoud be correct for my 71 SF with 2*11 rear drums.

However, the guide pins are too short so I cannot lock the retainers (springs already fully compressed before I can twist the retainer).

I measured up, current ones are about 5.4mm long, the original are 3-4mm longer. In medieval terms, thats 2.13 inches and 0.12-0.16 inches short.

Any suggestions on what retainers/kit/... I should have instead of the current kit I have?

« on: August 25, 2010, 01:10:48 PM »
Last weekend attended a very nice show in germanym too bad my camera batteries were almost dead...

There were a few very very nice vintage Mopars












Next day, at the races, I spotted a car that should be familiar to Steve:



And a fellow Mopar-buddy showed the chevy-guys how to do a proper burnout:

General BS and Laughs / great car movie: Love the Beast
« on: March 19, 2010, 03:02:00 PM »

A very good car movie, recommended to all car-people:

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1284028/

It tries to explain the "why" but I think its not especially helpful to make "not-car-people" understand

General BS and Laughs / Made in USA vs Made in China
« on: January 21, 2010, 02:19:01 PM »
Was wondering what your thoughts are on this general issue....

Product-wise I think it is good sometimes. As I experienced, the label "made in  usa" is often a warning for poor workmanship and loose tolerances. But yet another aftermarket supplier is now selling non-us stuff.

http://www.vintageperformance.com/retrorockets/coil1.htm

"We want to
tell you up front that the PerTronix coils will be coming from China
once our stock of American made coils is depleted.  Problems with
quality and timely delivery from American sources have forced the folks
at PerTronix to look elsewhere.  We are well aware that there is junk
coming out of China, but there are also very high quality products made
there.  PerTronix sent a team to China to be sure that the 
manufacturer there could meet its specs and stringent quality
requirements.  The coils we are getting from China are excellent.  We
at Retro Rockets back them with a full year warranty.  We understand if
you do not want to put foreign made items in your American iron, but if
you are looking for a quality product for your vehicle regardless of
the source, we offer you the PerTronix  Flame-Thrower Coils.

Tech- -BODY / Windshield rubber 67 Dart 4dr
« on: January 18, 2010, 05:56:15 AM »
A Moparbuddy over here is having a really hard time finding afitting windshield rubber for his 67 Dart 270 4-door. A company sent him a 67 Barracuda rubber, but that didnt fit.

Any suggestions how to solve this, or where to buy a new rubber?

General BS and Laughs / some pictures of Europe
« on: January 12, 2010, 02:40:31 PM »

For my US-friends, some pics of my trip from last Sunday, I visited Bruges, a Belgian city. It's on the UN world heritage list, and for good reason.

It's also a great place to enjpy some of the worlds finest chocolate. And the beer and food is also great, as it is anywhere in Belgium.

Not on the pics are the art museums we visited, with a collection of paintings dating back to 13th/14th till 17th century, really impressive.

Tech- - ELECTRICAL / aftermarket wiring harness
« on: December 22, 2009, 11:55:55 PM »
A friend is having ongoing reliability issues with the wiring of his 57 Coronet (will post pics later, its really a nice car). Basically, all wires are deteriorated and need replacement.
 
To get rid of the problems without going totally DIY (too time-consuming) he is looking for a universal harness.
 
We encountered these:
http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/EZ-WIRING-12-CIRCUIT-COLOR-UNIVERSAL-WIRING-HARNESS_W0QQcmdZViewItemQQhashZitem3ca89b093cQQitemZ260526770492QQptZMotorsQ5fCarQ5fTruckQ5fPartsQ5fAccessories
 
Are the products from EZ-wiring any good?
