General Tech- - BRAKES / 69 Fury drum to disc conversion
« on: August 29, 2008, 08:33:46 AM »
I never considered swapping my power drums for discs until I just acquired a 77 New Yawker...  I know this has been covered and asked and answered before, but some men ya caint reach....   Will the 77 disc set up transfer to my 69? Spindles, booster and all?
 
While I got yer attention, what about the steering box? Will it swap over?

Yes it was a great event...  For all the pics you guys took of C's and fins, I can't believe we didn't meet.  On Friday I was directly behind the finned car's club tent, and on Saturday, I was behind the black/gold finned Dodge - off to its right by 2 cars. You couldn't have missed my ragtop, it was the only 69 Fury in attendance this year.  On Sunday, solely by chance, I met Mr. John Samsen - the man who designed the grill and tail lights on the 69 Furys. He said he designed the grill so every verticle would reflect the light. Watching my car follow me up the road into a setting sun Thursday night, he accomplished his goal. Nice old gentleman to talk to. He saw me coming up the row and waited to see where I was going to park just so he could touch the grill. Had I a sharpie/marker on me, he would've signed the top edge of it for me. How cool is that!?
 
I am old school in my 35mm photo taking, so I have no pics to post.

Yeah, but just think how cool it will look when the low-rider movement graduates from 60's impalas to c-barges and they drag the ground shooting sparks everywhere when they cruise by........

I'll trade my 6.7 for your 5.9 
 
uh.... no you won't....  
 
You saying you should have kept the 5.9 you had?  For what reasons? Inquiring minds want to know.

I met tater and the boss man in Easton, Md. a while back and spoke with their canadian connection on the phone.  My car will be in the appropriate class on the fun field all 3 days. If I'm sitting there, be sure to say hey. I'd come find y'all at the worst western, but after leaving the little woman at the campground all day and returning to a hot dinner, I'll be much happier spending the evening with her and the kids....

Hey all...  been busy with life and vacation so I have not been poking around here much lately.... At any rate, My wife and kids and I will be staying at Western Village campground on the west edge of Carlisle in our 5th wheel. My best friend and his wife are following me there in my Fury. He and I will be at the event for all 3 days. The campground is only 10 minutes from the fairgrounds and only 40 bucks a night.  I figure if he can bring it to me in Ohio for the Nats last year, he should be more than comfortable driving it to Carlisle.   Hope to see some of you at the show....

Tech- - STEERING WHEELS AND SUSPENSION / 2007 Charger wheels...
« on: May 09, 2008, 04:23:50 PM »
I have an oppurtunity to pick up a set of factory aluminum wheels with the tires from a 2007 Charger for a whopping $150. They only have about 5k miles on them. Thinking about putting them on the Wanna-Bee, or maybe the Shelby since the originals need refurbished. I have not test fit them yet. I have heard both sides of the "they will fit/they will not fit " argument locally. Has anyone on here done this wheel swap, or know of someone that has. Will they fit the older MoPars?

General BS and Laughs / Chipmunks - no, not the movie
« on: May 09, 2008, 04:14:36 PM »
I have a bb gun that is almost dead on, but then I'd probably be putting windows in the camper and the Shelby.  Snakes....hmmmm....  no thanks, I want to keep my wife around........   One of my guys at work mentioned the Have-a-Hart thing...y'all r just too dern nice!  We have squirrels as well, but the neighbors feed them, so they stay out of my way. Oh, and the cat - nah, the only good cat is a dead cat around my house - can't stand 'em.

I am overrun with chipmunks. They are undermining my front porch, driveway and basement steps.... Mouse/rat poison seems to have no affect. Any suggestions?  reasonable ones, that is.....

General Tech / Still Make a Trailer Hitch for a 68 Fury Wagon?
« on: April 26, 2008, 08:16:05 AM »
don't know about the 68, but my owner's manual for my 69 has details and measurements for making a hitch. If it is spelled out in the 68 manual, he can have it made.

Tech- - Engine / oil pressure drop when making a hard stop
« on: April 19, 2008, 11:46:14 AM »
The pan is not dented/smashed or bent and the truck has never been wrecked. We both make the same drive to work everyday. It happens mostly at the bottom of a slight hill where we stop to turn left onto the main drag where our building is located. My 97  360 had 127k on it and never had this problem. He only has 74k on his 2002 and this just started a few weeks ago. It does not do it while turning if we don't stop...only on a harder than normal (spelled correctly this time) straight stop.  My wife's 02 D'ango also has the 360 and no problems with hers. He is using the same type/weight oil he has always used and changes it every 3500 miles. I don't see where all of a sudden, the oil would just slosh away from the pick-up tube.  The inside of the valve covers are spotless, so I do not believe there is a sludge issue either.

Tech- - Engine / oil pressure drop when making a hard stop
« on: April 19, 2008, 08:36:09 AM »
My buddy (yes I have one, so don't go there Steve...)  has a 2002 Ram with the 360. He has 74k miles on it and has always used Mobil-1 oil. He tells me last night when he and his wife came over to see the baby, that if he makes a hard stop, his oil pressure guage drops to ZERO and the "check guages light" lights on the dash. After about a 1-1/2 seconds, it comes back up to norlam. It is full of oil and does not do it under old-lady type of braking. I am thinking the oil pump is getting weak, and/or the shaft that drives it is rounding off on the end......  Y'all's thoughts please......

How can you test a brake booster in the field with minimum tools?

Adopt a 44 yr old???  At 41 myself, I would have to be in W.Va. topull that one off.... lol
 
Announcing grandees.... at the rate we are going, every eleven years i've announce my own, so in 11 years i might be announcing a grandee seeing how one is 11 now...
 
and the vehicles they may want/drive... so far for the last 2 years my now 11 yr old has been calling the Shelby 'kota his and wants to do it in its original white and Shelby stripes as it was before the paint and decals all started peeling off... He'll probably end up with a rice-burner
 
THANKS FOR THE CONGRATS AND WELL WISHES GUYS... AND YES, MOM AND BABY ARE DOING GREAT. HE IS ALREADY SLEEPING 4 HRS BETWEEN FEEDINGS, HAS POOPED ON MY HANDS AND MAKES HIS BROTHER LOOK LIKE A LITTLE MAN...
