Tech- - Engine / air filters for 57-62 oval dual-quad aircleaners
« on: October 13, 2008, 05:04:38 AM »
Anyone have any info on where to get air filters for the 57-62 dual-quad oval aircleaners?  I’ve found availability for the large single oval that hangs off the side of the engine, but not much else as oval.  The originals are approx 11.5” x 6.5” x 1.75” (not positive on the height).

Here’s what I’ve learned so far:
One of the numbers for the originals is CA161PL http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=170260133341
 
K&N makes a 3 ½” tall version (I presume the oval shape is the same) and Wix does also (42030).  It’s just way too tall.  I want something about 2 ½” tall but at this point I’ll take anything under 3” so that it will fit underhood.
 
My plan was to find a similar round air filter and mush it into the correct shape.  So far I’m not finding a suitable filter, based on circumference I need a 9.25" dia filter but when I tried to mash one into an oval it came out too long (the thickness interfered with the shaping).  I guess I need something about 8.5" dia.  I’ve done some cross-ref research on K&N’s site and the filters in this size range are oddball filters that parts stores don’t stock.
 
Anybody got any ideas or knowledge?  I saw in another post that Gary Goers has the air cleaners, but I don't really want to work with someone that only works by mail...

Based on info I have read, the 7012 is the rotor for a 69-71 brake setup (the expensive style).
 
However:

  • Rock Auto shows a 7012R rotor for $152 and a 7012 for $132.  The R’s application is specifically listed as 69-72 C-body, while the plain 7012 has no applications listed.  
  • Partsamerica.com shows the 7012 as being the correct part# for a 69-71 rotor and does not recognize a 7012R.
  • Autozone.com has no listings for 69-71 at all.

 
So:
  • I wondered if the R refers to RH threads, but if so I would think the R rotor would be cheaper due to the studs being more ‘common’ for the manufacturer. 
  • There is no listing for brake rotors for 69-70 cars (on Rock Auto), 71 is the earliest year showing a rotor, and wasn’t 71 the start of RH threads on both sides of the car? 
  • The photos look the same, but I’m not sure we can trust that in this case.
  • Both are listed as ‘professional grade’, so no clues there.
  • Haven’t found a ‘related parts’ link so I can’t cross-ref by the bearings to figure out what’s –what.
Any thoughts?  I have heard of (and seen) a unicast 69-72 rotor, perhaps the 7012 is it???
If the 7012 is correct I’d sure like to be able to save $40 on a pair of rotors!
 
Here is a kinda-related link on rotors, although it doesn’t address my question.

Tech- - DRIVE TRAIN / 70 440 Magnum / TNT torque converter weights
« on: July 07, 2008, 02:57:39 AM »
Engine is a 70 440 Magnum with the 70-71-Magnum-specific external balance.
The transmission front seal blew out of my trans, in one day it went from an occasional drip to enough drips&runs to turn my car into a cropduster.  I suspected this was more than a seal to start leaking so badly, and suspicions were confirmed.
The converter hub has a pretty wide wear patch on it, and I also noticed the converter has 2 ring gear teeth missing, which I could feel when starting the car (but didn't know what it was). The converter also has 2" tall lettering on the back side that has been painted over, so somebody has been in there before me (even though it's a 'survivor' car).  I'm going to install a new pump bushing, seal, and new converter.
I've looked and haven't found anyone that lists this specific converter, and I've looked unsuccessfully for the data on the weight size and location so that I could weld them onto an unbalanced converter.  Anyone got any info?  My car always had a slight vibration (could feel it in neutral when revving the engine) so I don't trust using my existing converter weights or as a pattern.
Help!
