Tech- - STEERING WHEELS AND SUSPENSION / steering gear box
« on: November 17, 2009, 02:12:17 PM »
I was wondering if someone can help me out here.
I going to be purchasing a steering gearbox from NAPA to replace the one om my 72 Imp, but here lies the question: NAPA has 2 part numbers listed, 88277066 for $159.00, $138.50 (core) and 88277093 for $152.99, $33.30 (core). What is the difference? What about that core price?? There's a pretty big difference.
I've already investigated Steer & Gear and Firm Feel for a rebuild, but that route is a little pricey, so I'll try this first.

Site Questions and Announcements / A question for the moderators...

Is there an easy way for you to collect the member data for Moparfins by their location?
The reason I ask is, if you are able to pull this information, and find an area that is cental to all members, put out a poll to everyone to get an idea of who would be willing to drive to this location, and to see if we could get enough interest to have our own meet.
I know a C body get together has been discussed before on the Dry Dock, but I don't think there was much interest. Maybe now it is different.

General Mopar Discussions / Stumbled onto a new site

I was surfing for C Body parts and came across
This may be a newer website for our kind of cars trying to get off the ground. It's nice to see interest in the big bodied Chryslers growing. I added a pic of my car and a brief caption on my Imperial. 

UPHOLSERY HOW TOO's / My dashboard is sticky!
« on: January 12, 2009, 03:17:30 PM »
Sounds funny?...  
My dilema: There seems to be a sticky residue on the entire dash of my 300. I have never put anything on it to make this happen, but it's a pain to keep clean. In fact, it's just like a magnet to all the dandelion fuzzies that are floating around when I drivin with the top down. I have only used a damp cloth with warm water to wipe it off after driving. After it is cleaned and dries off, it's sticky again. What is a safe product to use without causing any damage?
My 300's dash might be a replacement from the original one. I'm not sure  if it is, but the fit seems to be slightly off, that is why suspect it's a replacement. Do replacement dashes have anytype of residue on them when new?

General Tech / New Exhaust
« on: January 05, 2009, 05:13:26 PM »
Soon I plan on getting the exhaust pipes done on my 69 300 from front to back, but I have had some discussions with which mufflers to use. Me and several people I know all agree Flowmasters are the brand, but I'm in between on going with the Super 40's or the Super 44's. When I listen to the sound clip on their website, they sound almost identical.  I'm going for the deep sound with the HP rumble. Would anybody hear recommend one over the other?
One more thing.....I am also considering adding  "dump" exhaust with electric switches so I could scare the piss out of the tuner guys when I pull up next to one. Would this be overkill ? I have no idea what the cost to add the dumps. Any suggestions ?

Tech- -BODY / "outy dent" in the hood
« on: November 04, 2008, 02:12:18 PM »
I am preparing to paint the 300 with a black/gold color scheme (sticherbob's suggestion to a post I had on DryDock a while back). There has been a small outward dent right in the middle of the hood since I got this car, like someone closed the hood without enough clearence one time, it's not too noticeable, but I know it's there and would want to staighten/flatten before any paint goes on.
I'm thinking on taking it to a dent removal specialist, but without ever having this kind of work done on any car I have ever owned, I am a little skepticle.
What are the do's and don'ts of this kind of body work?

Tech- - STEERING WHEELS AND SUSPENSION / Raised white letter tires
« on: November 04, 2008, 01:55:33 PM »
The tires on my 69 300 vert are about due for replacement. I drove this car alot this year and it is time to replace the bolony skins it's currently wearing.
The current tire is 235R/75/15 with a 1" WW. I want to replace them w/ raised letter tires, but can only find 235R/70/15. BF Goodrich, Uniroyal and Goodyear all make this size but not in 75.
Are there any other mfg's making this size or is the 70 the way to go?

Tech- - STEERING WHEELS AND SUSPENSION / Adjusting front end height
« on: September 03, 2008, 07:53:58 AM »
I had my Imperial out over the weekend and noticed the driver side of the car is a little lower than the passenger side while looking at the car from the front. In addition, when looking at the car from the side, the front end on both sides sits a little lower than the back. I would like to heighten the front of the car so the body is level from front to back.
I found the adjustment section in the manual, but it doesn't indicate what the height level should be. Does anyone have any advise in this area? Also, should the front end be off or on the ground when making adjustments to the front end?
