Well, I broke the land speed record (for me) in removing the radiator, water pump housing, steering pump (to the side) alt bracket (to the side), the pulleys, damper, and the timing chain cover.  90 minutes and not a scratch to the engine.  I LOVE this Bill Hirsch engine paint, it's like iron!
 
I think the drive gear is in wrong.  I'll use your method Steve now that the cover is off.  I'd like to think this will work.  Please pray for this idiot!
 
Steve, please PM me your address so I can send you these news paper clippings from the Tulsa World on the unearthing of MS. Belvedere last year.  If you don't want them, I'm sure someone does.  My sister lives in Tulsa and cut them out for me.

General Tech / HEATER HOSE ROUTING-'70 FURY
« on: June 26, 2008, 05:20:43 PM »
I am wondering what the factory routing for heater hoses in a '70 Fury w/bb and no a/c. 
 
Anyone have a pic? I'd sure like to know for my 'vert and get the right bracket if I need one.

Well, almost 3 weeks and we've hit a short (but jumpable I think) wall.  Here's the deal.  Everything is on the car and ready to fire, including the very scary temp exhaust.  This is a stock '69 440 that I did the following work:
 
1. Replaced timing chain
2. Replaced valve stem seals
3. added a windage tray and cleaned the pickup out. 
4. new high pressure oil pump
5. new water pump
 
I have fuel, spark, and it cranks like it has compression.  NO START.  I thought about this for a couple of days and the only thing that I (and other engine building elders I have conferred with) come up with is I have the timing chain on wrong. 
 
BTW, I have 25+ PSI oil pressure cranking the engine!
 
What say you guys? I am ready to go in after the chain angle, especially since it's a non a/c car.
 
Your answers/opinions greatly appreciated!

Brian,

It actually hasn't left yet but it's 100% paid for.  The buyer is not yet sure if he's going to drive it home (it's ready and will make it) or ship it.  I suspect it will be gone by July 4th.  He's going to finish what I started.

I'll take some pics tomorrow or Sunday after I get the temp exhaust on.  It's going to be close to 100 degrees here both days so I am not sure how much will get done. It's close to running, then a trip to Roadrunner Exhaust in Springfield, MA

I can't share the enthusiasm for the hubcaps, but you're doing a hell of a job on the rest of the car Lea! I see that shiny MM1 paint and think that in a few years my 300 will look that good again.

Wow, tremendous progress!  I only wish I had gotten my wagon to that level.  At least it now has a new home where the new owner will finish what I started.

General Tech / Swapping in 26" rad where a 22" usta be
« on: June 06, 2008, 04:28:56 PM »
C'mon Lea, just do what the factory did to my '68 Newport Custom with A/C-they must have run out of 26" cores or supports and my car has a 3 row 22" rad. from a '68 Dodge truck with A/C. THe car has never run hot before or after the recore of the radiator.  I have the 2 piece metal shroud on my car also.  Crazy stuff.

Wow, you're on fire! I quit using the Mopar paint after the last engine in the convertible. I now use Bill Hirsch's paint and it's great.  It  wears like iron. It's not cheap but you get what you pay for.

Wow, I haven't updated in awhile.  I have been assembling since early April.  We are down to the last few things before the key gets turned.   I need to wire up the electronic distributor and the coil, the electric choke on the carb and the hideaway headlamps.  2 more lower radiator bolts, a lower hose clamp, then install the manifolds and a temp exhaust and we'll see if it runs! I'll have to take some fresh pics in the next few days.

These things are thankless. My friend works in a railroad machine shop and he pressed mine out at work for me.  There was a Mopar Action reader that posted a trick but I can't recall it.

Wow, a weak coil caused al lthat stuff Matt?  I'll have to look into my 2 higher compression 440 cars with original coils. Maybe THAT'S the problem!

Tech- - ELECTRICAL / Voltage regulators....
« on: March 30, 2008, 04:20:08 AM »
See ebay user furygt for great deals on transistorized '69 and down voltage regulators. They work great and negate the need for additional wiring. 
 
Oh yeah, and '69 Imperials were the first to have what is commonly referred to as the '70 UP regulator.
