Ya I remember that adventure of yours Bob, I'll sure know one thing to
look for if I start losing coolant. Turned out OK in the end - still
run well? I love 318s and 360s, best Mopar V8 ever, imo.

I'll probably pick this one up as a spare if nothing else.

Aren't you getting a bit old for that? Use a lift

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

I got my own lift, thankfully!!  Oddly, I got it not for cars, but
because I had a bunch of big old Evinrude/Johnson V4s from the ''60s
laying about the garage, and at 300+ lbs  I got tired of lifting
them up onto transoms... still have several of those outboard beasts,
great motors but boy do they suck gas.



Odd that the 70 would feel much different than the 69, I can't tell a
diff between the 70 and 71, and I think it was 71 when they put the
rubber isolators on the suspension to quiet the ride, iirc.

Those bushings make the car roll more on corners, but smooth out the ride.  You can use pickup cab bushings to retore those.  Someday I'll get some for Polaraco.  Gonna be a real buster the change them too
