General Mopar Discussions / Headers......
« on: May 14, 2008, 05:40:11 PM »

What's your take?  I know I'm asking for trouble here but I figured I'd ask anyway.   

After spending some more time under the hood lately, trying to diagnose the dry bowls problem, I've noticed that both exhaust manifolds are cracked.   It really isn't evident until they warm up and it's clearly visible then.   I know I should stay with the original logs but the performance manifolds are out-bloody-rageous, and this thing is never going to see an auction, or a for sale sign for that matter..   Hedman has a part number they say will fit for 25% of the cost I've been finding the manifolds.    Looking at the exhaust too I see numerous pin holes so the pipe from the manifolds back to the bumper will have to be replaced so I figure it's not much more work (but cheaper) to throw a set of headers (hedders) on it.

Thanks,
Bill

I'm talking light to no corrosion, rust, pitting, etc.   Is there a special paint for the shadow?   Tapes that work better than others?  I would assume that I'd want to buff them first...
 
For the grille inserts is there any problem straightening the edges with needle nose pliars or is that a bit rough?  What's the best match for the silver paint on headlight inserts?   How about the black for the shadows? 
 
How about restoring the gleem on the shiny bits?

Tech- - FUEL / Bowls emptying
« on: May 09, 2008, 03:06:39 PM »
Steve,
 
  It's a carter.  I'd be more inclined to believe the metering rods were leaking.  I hate to buy another rebuild kit just to have the problem persist though.   Any ideas on resolving it besides a new carb?

Tech- - FUEL / Bowls emptying
« on: May 09, 2008, 01:18:21 PM »
Ok I have a problem with the bowls on the carb drying out.  I know todays gas evaporates quickly but it would seem to me overnight is a bit quick.  I've actually had the monaco in the driveway for the afternoon and had to prime the carb to start her up.  Anyone have any ideas?  It's almost as if the fuel is running out of the carb somewhere but without any venturi action I would assume that's pretty difficult.  Unless maybe she's cracked but everything looked good during the rebuild.

Tech- - FUEL / Arghhhh another fuel pump...

Yup crappy pump would be my guess.  What do you expect for foreign made and $15.00?

« on: April 09, 2008, 03:19:54 AM »
Well with out tearing the thing down the rod I would think is ok.  Seemed to move free enough.   Replaced the filter since I thought maybe it was plugged but the old one had flow and nothing bad came out of the inlet.  I mean I could blow through it with no trouble.
 
I will say this though the last time I had it in the driveway idling it acted like it had a dead cylinder so I backed it up and parked her.  Now when I prime the carb she runs smooth as silk.  I was thinking maybe plugged line but that doesn't seem tot be the case so far.

Tech- - FUEL / Arghhhh another fuel pump...
« on: April 08, 2008, 05:31:37 PM »
Well I guess I'm replacing another fuel pump.  This one has been in for roughly three months and has less than a mile on it, but has about 3 hours of idle time.   I thought maybe the tank was dry since the indicator was about an eigth of a tank..  Dropped 3 gallons in tonight and primed her four times and no juice.  Fired up the compressor, then ran some air down the line.  Got fuel back, alot of it.  So I quickly popped the line back on the fuel pump, and I got fuel shooting out of the other side of the pump, connected the filter as quick as I could and got fuel out of that.  By this time the pressure had subsided.  So I proceed to prime and crank one more time.  NADA.  Pull the tank side of the fuel line and it still had fuel there...  I'm beginning to hate mechanical pumps all over again.
