Hello, Was wondering if anybody else has been using the Powermaster PWM-17509 alternator, using a voltage regulator bolted to the firewall. (I've had this on the Challenger since 2006 but it's starting to fade).
Checked around and the PWM-17509 is on backorder BUT I can get the PWM-175091 which...
Welcome from Brampton, Ontario Canada.
My wheels are staggered 15 x 8 rear (255 - 60 - 15) 15 x 7 front (225 - 65 - 15) Excellent stance IMO.
BTW You may want to confirm whether or not to change your speedometer gear when you change your wheels. (Just changed mine when I changed to 3:55 rear...
Thanks for your help. Based on the vibration along the clutch rod it seems the issue is where the clutch rod meets the return spring. I've lubed it with lithium grease. Still hearing some noise but It's a little better.

For many years I worked in the manufacturing sector, (not automotive but along the same principles). A few of my colleagues were engineers originally from the auto sector and your comment about the fender tags rang a bell. Basically up until the mid to late 80's fender tags were apparently a hit...
Hope not to offend any purists!
I understand why the factory used vinyl graphics back in the day, because the car came off a production line. However, in a restoration scenario, in my opinion paint is more expensive, but a much better solution in the long run.
Been driving various standard transmission vehicles over 43 years. I'm not new to shifting gears.
I changed the 3/4 Synchro completely. After getting advice and assessing I'm convinced the sloppy shifter wasn't any help but also think the guy who rebuilt my transmission three years ago used an...
Welcome From Ontario, Canada!
Really happy to read younger folks are also into the Mopar hobby.
If you decide on an aftermarket transmission ensure the driveshaft geometry is correct and not stressing the transmission (which can also) affect the flywheel contact with the starter etc.
A friend texted me yesterday evening that back in the day, until digital technology took over, speedometer's were calibrated to 50 mph and all other speeds could be a little off - and this was considered normal. Not sure how accurate that statement is?
