What a shame Leaburn...That piece of glass looks to be in the side of the tread....not actually the sidewall...Can't it be patched from the inside and saved?...at least for a spare?

Roger must still be eating his Wheaties every morning there Steve.... My 318 is still running very well. One would never know that it gulped all that antifreeze. No smoke at all...ever. It idles so smooth and quiet when I'm sitting at a stop light I wonder if it's still running. It's one great running motor and my 69 Fury is one fabulous car too. The smoothest and quietest ride I have ever owned...I still scratch my head when I think of how different my 70 Fury rode. My 70 rode like a lumber wagon. Roger, at least wear a support belt when you pick that 318 up

What a huge difference.  A major improvement there Leaburn. Congratulations! I really like the black wall look with the chrome wheels. I bet people do this...when you drive by.

Here's a thread of mine from 2009...when I had a bad timing cover leak antifreeze into my crankcase. Compare my 85,000 mile 1969 318 and see what you can learn. Mine has the blue springs too...

Thanks for the update Steve. I still lurk over there (FL) but never really have been much of a poster. It's just ridiculous how they pick everything and everyone apart over there. Someone posted over there that the car was put in storage...because there was no more money to finish the cleanup work on her. I figured that was bogus info. Does Dwight have the ability to submerge the whole car? I'm sure that would take a lot of the back-breaking work out of that project. Now that I have a Miss Belvedere (look-alike) I have even more of an interest in her. Does he have any idea when she'll be done?  I'm glad to get the truth from you. It sure would be good to get updates once again. Will Dwight allow that to happen?...here?
 
Thanks Steve....Bob

Pardon me if I change the subject...I actually got excited when I saw this topic come back to the top...thought maybe there was some news about Miss Belvedere. Does anyone know what's going on with her? Is Dwight still working on the poor old rust bucket?

Sent you back a PM Rog. The 880 is a 63.
 
I read recently about the demise of DeSoto....Found it very interesting that the 62 Dodge Custom 880 was actually supposed to be for DeSoto had it not been killed off by Chrysler. Not sure if that write-up was accurate though since, I've also read that in 62, Dodge hurried the 880 into production late in the model year (by Jan.) to provide a full size car to complete with GM and Ford. Out of desperation, Chrysler Corp. ok'd Dodge to mate a modified 1961 Dodge Polara front clip to a 62 Chrysler Newport's definned rear quarter panels and passenger compartment. Chrysler Corp. had heard (bad inside information) that Chevy was downsizing it's full size cars for 62 but that obviously never happened. In 62 they came out with Chevy II...hence the reason Dodge and Plymouth produced downsized "full size" models for 62....Ooops

I've been reading much more than posting here lately. Bottom line: I know there's some great Mopar people on this forum. Steve, I'm very sorry for the loss of your friend. Some of you have mentioned faith as being important. I certainly agree. Life is surely a gift from our Creator. When feeling despair, go to Him first with your problems. He's always quick to listen especially when we're desperate. I know I would'nt be here typing this if I didn't go to Him nearly 14 years ago. And as Steve and others have mentioned...talk with your friends and loved ones...never isolate yourself. Our hobby and this forum have a great purpose in that it can keep us involved with others. Think about that the next time your old Mopar breaks and you don't know how to fix it. It just may be a blessing! I know many of you have been right there to help me when I didn't have the know-how to fix it...I remember Steve and Leeburn were ready to jump in their cars and drive hundreds of miles to come up and help me!  Lee even personally helped me get the parts I needed at Forkey's in Clayton, NY. I will never forget that. I remember Chris way out in AZ nailed what was wrong with my 69 318 when it gulped all the coolant in the radiator. I surely am grateful for good friends and also for those of you I have never met. What a great time of year to reflect on stuff like this as we celebrate Christmas...I hope you all can reflect in the same way.  Merry Christmas and may God bless you all.

That's one serious and stunning collection... The 60 Polara is my fave...Now there's an appropriate occasion to use the word "RARE".

Get a hold of Karl Kirshner...He's the guy that owns Black Beauty...you know, the Green Hornet car? His screenname is V 194 over at the old dry dock site...He's on Moparts too. He was best friends with John Kozak...the owner of that fine 67 Fury. I'm sure he'll give you all the details. I believe I heard that the $$$ from the sale of that car will go to Cancer research or something like that.

General Tech / Flushing 41 Plym. cooling system
« on: November 03, 2010, 05:42:13 AM »
Can you guys believe that I'm still draining/filling/driving this 41 to flush out the cooling system? I'm running out of time here...It's now starting to get real cold at night! The water is still coming out looking like apple cider. I bet I've repeated this process over a dozen times by now! Anyone ever had to go to this extent?
 
PS...You're right Steve!...Dawn keeps the rust sediment suspended in the water indefinitely...when I didn't add Dawn, the rust settles right to the bottom of the catch pan after a couple of hours.
