This one is total nostalgia for me, and I'm glad to finally be doing some work on it. Now is when I begin to wish I'd win the lottery... Not so I can afford to send it out to get it restored, but so I can build a new garage, and buy all the tools and materials...

Tech- - FUEL / Another Fuel Pump Question...

Thanks... I will look at those, then. I may just order a new set from Inline Tube, and see about replacing them when I do the rear portion of the fuel line.
 
Some of this stuff I'm going to replace just because... The other wagon that I had, my folks owned from new, so I knew everything about it, good and bad.... It had about the same number of miles back then, as this one has now, but it was in much better condition... mostly because it was 25 years ago, I presume.
 
I just want to be confident about as much of this car as I can, before I go driving it around. Someday, I'd like to drive it to Carlysle, which is where the guy I got it from first bought the car. I'd also like to do a Route 66 trip someday... Neither of which will happen before I have confidence that it will hold up.... could be awhile :-)

I will get better with the picture posting, and hopefully, will be as diligent about it as some of the other folks here. Anyway... I will be ordering a breather for the other side, and grommets so I can drill out the hole, and put the PCV valve in on the driver's side.

Oddly, the brake lines have been serviced, so they look ok. They should be good until I go to convert to disks in front... which will be down the road a piece.
 What is of greater concern, as far as lines go, are the trans cooler lines, that go to the bottom of the radiator. They don't look good at all, so those should be done pretty soon. Inline Tube doesn't seem to have specific Dodge Polara/Monaco trans cooler lines for '69-'70, but they do show them for the '69-'70 Chrysler Newport/New Yorker/300... I presume they would would be the same, since it's the same transmission... no?schaefman2011-07-09 21:16:13

Tech- - Engine / New Valve Covers - PCV Valve?

Tech- - Engine / New Valve Covers - PCV Valve?
« on: July 08, 2011, 05:24:56 AM »


So, I am going to go ahead and order a Mopar Performance twist on breather cap, but I wonder if there is an advantage one way or the other in having or not having a PCV valve. I just don't recall why it was that we didn't use it. I presume that the need for a breather is to avoid too much pressure building up in the top end.... does that mean I need a breather on each side?
