That's about 2100 rpm at 65mph. 28" tire with 4.10s and an A500 trans. Cley
Just an observation here, the clips are nearly impossible to Purring like a kitten, sounds good.
...nearly impossible to WHAT??! I'm dyin here! Haha.
Still messing around with getting reverse to work...started working again but now it's not again. .. But the forward gears are a blast! Jeff
Love the color. Great looking car!
Back to cleaning
What's your technique?
I feel your pain Jeff!! Mine runs like a raped ape in 1st gear! The transmission I rebuilt and installed last weekend won't upshift into 2nd or 3rd. So I pulled the valve body and double checked all the valves and measurements. All good. The screws holding 3 of the 4 covers were loose. Hoping that was the problem. Must have forgotten to tighten them. I'm also going to double check the governor. Pulled the extension housing enough to access the governor. Going to stop for the night, build a fire and make Somores.
Oh sorry, I thought I deleted that. Anyway trying to remove or install the clips with the windshield and gasket in place is next to impossible.
Not sure if it was fine or very fine steel wool and a bowl of water to keep it clean. I tried 2000 wet paper but it left scratches. Oh and lots of elbow grease. Lol
And you asked yourself...... "What could go wrong".... Keep chipping at it...
Drove two projects today my ‘75 Dart Sport and pop’s ‘68 Roadrunner. Great weekend to fire up the cars and enjoy some sunshine in FLA. Installed the grill on the RR and, had to adjust the rear drum brakes on the Dart.
I know what is wrong with it...I drained it, pulled the pan a the lip seal on the rear servo is dangling in the bore.... Son of a b.........damn I can't change that in the car.....want to throw a brick at it......
Replacing front cross member and passenger floor pan on my 71 Demon 340. Hard work drilling out all the spot welds and cutting out the pan.
Which headers are those? JW
TTI ceramic coated. P/N is TTI340A-C4
The fit looks OK. Did you cuss them lol.... I will be up on a lift so bottom clearance is easy. I also have a small steering box. JW
The fit is great...once you get them in. This is my first set of headers, I installed them the first time last summer and yes, lots of cussing. But I’m sure if you’ve done it before it would be easier. The steering linkage needs to come apart, engine needs to be raised, starter removed, and the oil filter removed. When I first installed them, I didn’t think about tie rod clearance, so the passenger side ended up rubbing quite a bit. When I dropped the engine in this time, I made some 5/16” spacers for the engine mounts. Now the headers clear the tie rod ends nicely. I also ended up melting the speedo cable, so I’m wrapping them in certain places and relocating the cable where I can.
Being up on a lift should give me an advantage. TTI's, dougs, it's a bloodbath I tell ya lol... The only set of headers I have ever been around that fit like a glove were Lemons on a Corvette. Custom built from them just asking basic measurements. They are some bad dudes... JW
Still fitting the panel on the car getting close to final fit. Off and on a dozen times. But I got it where I want now.
Got the transmission governor cleaned and reinstalled. Buttoned everything back up and took it for a drive to see if my efforts on the valve body and governor got the rebuilt trans upshifting. It works!!!!!!!!!!!!! First time I've driven it with the new 5.9 and rebuilt transmission with a 9.5" converter (6 months!). Also had the power steering gear rebuilt to "sport" mode by steer and gear. It runs strong!! Very happy with it. I'll post a video in a day or two but here's a pic of the engine. And one getting ready to reassmble the transmission a few days ago.
Got my engine bay painted finally I'm very happy with it. I love how it changes tones in the dark. The last two pics are after the sun went down it really pops in the sun. Mind you this is without clear. Its gonna look awesome with clear
Been beating my head against the wall trying to set the timing on my car. I swapped advance springs to the medium set from my FBO limit plate kit. It definitely woke the car up! My timing light finally took a dump completely so I'm thinking that was half my problem. I will prevail! Cley
Got side glass installed.
The reflections on that car are unreal! That's a hell of a paint job! Looks really good! Nicely done
