    Front End Ride Height - 1970 Challenger

    Just something to note - if you alter the ride height it will change the wheel alignment spec slightly.

    SOLD 71 Plymouth Barracuda (Cuda Clone)

    Maybe change the designation too sold so people will not get confused. Keep going is the right idea. Good luck.

    73 Cuda caliber bracket

    Yep that is the pin style they are harder to get but I have seen them for sale. Perhaps a wanted ad- but watch for scammers. I seem to remember seeing them for sale new but I cannot recall where.

    73 Cuda caliber bracket

    Have you got slider or pin style callipers? I think Mopar changed from pin to slider in 1972 so if you have the pin style they may not be original. There are also two diameters of disc rotor and they use different brackets. The set for sale is the slider type. The pin style does have threads...

    New Build 440 overheating

    I think you are Ok. The slits are designed to limit water flow but still line up if the holes in the heads are in different places. There main job is to allow steam pockets to disperse.

    Most Delicate Way to Remove Hood Popup Spring?

    Due to the design I don't think you will do it without taking some paint off. Bend the little tab up and go. Pencil touch with a small brush.

    New Build 440 overheating

    You could remove the thermostat completely to eliminate it being any part of the problem for a test. If it still gets up to 225 or more you know the problem is elsewhere. It will take longer to heat up but if there is a problem it will still get too hot.

    New Build 440 overheating

    Is the engine able to bypass water? Some engines are not happy if you block off the heater.

    Have a look at site sponsor Detroit Muscle Technologies. His stuff is really good. Their website has info on locations used for their gaskets.

    The release lever and a couple of the others in the front panel are 10-24 UNC From memory but I can double check if you need me to.
