Tech- - Engine / so its been awhile

Heres the picture of the valve cover gasket as it came out of the box like this. someone had purchased this, grabbed it by the end and didnt know they were holding the gasket, and ripped/broke the ends of the gaskets... returned it without the store inspecting it and got their money back... what a joke and then i get the gasket and its in pieces... go figure.. today i go back and get another set or if they have to order it like everything else i had to get for this car.

Thats what i thought... i was thinking someone told me they never had Holleys in these cars coming out of factory. all the ones my dad owned such as 85 Dodge Ram 440 engine had Carters. wasnt the FORD line that had the Holley carbs out of factory? mines as factory as it gets.. nothing has been ever modified in the car i have now.

a retired police offier told me i should run some mystery marvel oil in it for about 500 miles before oil change and should clean that gunk out...   has any of you used that stuff? ive used it once on my OLLLLLLD high school car and needless to say, that oil pump gave out about 5k miles later and since then ive never used it again...

Quote from: CBarge
Steve,the New Yorker came factory with a Holley and I replaced it with a Carter .
I was still using the factory squarebore 1968 intake.
So,yes to your question.
 
 
I think they came out of factory with both carter and holley.... some cars got holley and some got Carters. mine is factory and never been changed, mine is a 1966 NYer with a Carter.

Hi ppl... its been awhile.. been busy working and finally got time to work on my 66 Chrysler.
 
got some stuff done, anti-sway bar links are fixed and done...
 

 
the start.. took the carb to a guy and hes going to rebuild the carb.

 
tore down the intake to put in a new intake gasket. it was a headache lining up the bolts and remembering where all stuff goes back on.

 
 
looking good for a 107k miles!

 
well i ordered gaskets but they came in pieces... its been previously opened so i gotta return them and get a new set.

pictures from C-body DRYDOCK site.
 

 

 

 

 
 
enough said. im not gonna explain anymore. that is CLEARLY the same bar as mine. EXACT BAR THS GUY ORDERED FROM FIRMFEELCOM.  when HE ordered, he said he needed a C -body sway bar kit... that is WHAT he got... not what the picture that Dana44 posted. that is not the correct one. like with Justsuspension.com.. as what steve said.. CALL THEM to get the correct part... same thing with FIRMFEEL.com.

PLEASE do me a fricking favor... click on this site...
 
http://www.cbodydrydock.com/forum_viewtopic.php?5.115445
 
 
THEN i asked where he found this sway bar bc its what im lookign FOR.. he stated FIRMFEEL.com... so please.. spare me the idiocracy thinking that sway bar you posted that you copied and pasted from the FIRMFEEL.com site rather than listening to what i fricken said...
 
 when they gave me the SITE... http://www.firmfeel.com/swaybars_c.htm this is a PHOTO rep for a B-body and they stated you need to call them and tell them youre looking for a 66 C body sway bar... then they will send you the RIGHT ONE...
 
 
 
im done...  apparently someone cant see what im seeing. that bar Dana44 is totally different than the one with teh RED car showing off his firmfeel.com sway bar he bought and installed on HIS car...  that picture on the firmfeel is just a PHOTO in general. it is NOT the 1966's sway bar actual picture.
 
 
 
i feel like im talking to a dead horse. i think i will stick to Cbody Drydock since they know what they are saying and totally understood what i was asking. i guess you can say if i order it and its wrong... so be it... if its right.. dana44 is wrong.

HAHAH!!!  you didnt read what i said... THAT PICTURE IN THE WEBSITE IS "NOT" the bar for the 66 Chrysler... READ.... READ... that PICTURE... IS.. NOT... THE .... SWAY ... BAR... FOR ... THE CAR.....
 
 
THIS is the GUYs CAR where he BOUGHT his SWAY BAR KIT from FIRMFEEL.com.

 
 
THIS IS MINE... IDENTICAL!!!!  ALL I HAVE TO DO IS CALL AND TELL THEM I HAVE A 1966 CHRYSLER NEW YORKER AND THEY WILL SHIP THE SAME ONE THAT GUY GOT IN HIS FRICKING PICTURE ABOVE.
 

 
 
seriously... are you drunk? who said the picture on the website is the one i think will work? im not interested in that PICTURE you posted up. are you really that blind?

the one the person had in his bar is the exact same as this one i have. i dont know how that is different?
 
 
okay... look at these pictures.  two above are MINE... two below i got from the website.
 
 
Factory set linkage

 
linkages from my friend....

 
 
 
NEW firmfeel sway bar on a person's project car..

 
 
 
NOTICE IT LOOKS EXACTLY LIKE MY SWAY BAR SET UP???
 ALSO if you look at my first picture near my DATE stamp, AND the last picture (below) looks like the SAME set up as this one.. keep in mind, he didnt realize his SWAY Bar was suppose to be ABOVE the control arm and not below it... so he changed it the right way according to MY CAR PIC.
 
  I guess im CONFUSED on what youre trying to say? its like i have to do IT YOUR WAY because you said so. Okay DAD.
 
Keep in MIND you saw a ONE photo from that firmfeel website and i knew that is NOT the sway bar but it is whats posted on that site. If you read on that site, you MUST tell them what you NEED for a sway bar set up... the one on that PHOTO is a B body sway bar and NOT a C bc B body are more popular than C body. so the photo YOU saw is not what i was referring to. see below picture and you will see my car and this guy's 67 Chrsyler is totally the same set up.
 
IM DONE.

well the guy realized in the picture that his sway bar was upside down. it will work for my car. His car is a 67 Newport C-body. TOTALLY compatiable. so if he can get one, im gonna get a NEW set. as rusted as the rest of the bar and the linkages i got... i can hold on to those and when and if the NEW link breaks, i got another to replace it AND have the clamp bottoms ready to go. im set. im not gonna machine shop anything.

Yeah, I heard of them, think I bought the window rubber from them back in 1977 (seriously).
 
The thing is, they don't have the ones you need, they want the measurements so they can simply match something up.
 
GO GET THE BOTTOM PIECES FOR THE ONES YOUR FRIEND GOT FOR YOU AND SIMPLY USE THEM, THEY ARE SERVICEABLE WITHOUT HAVING TO USE A CUTTING WHEEL OR HACKSAW, AND A WELDER.
 


 
 
 
I hear you man.. my friend didnt have the bottom pieces..
 
*ahem*  WHERE AM I GONNA FIND THE BOTTOM PIECES FOR THE ONES I GOT???
 
sorry to yell.
 
seriously, where am i gonna find that? i need to find it somehow and the JC Restoration said if i want, they MAY have the piece im looking for on the ones i was given. so i did email them back to see if they did and if they can get it for me. no response yet.
