    Powermaster Alternator

    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...

    Another level. For a daily driver. Lol.

    Nice ride! I remember going to the discos in 1979 with two of my buddies in an Eldorado convertible. Fun times. - Glad you got it back before somebody turned it into a low rider LOL

    New member, looking for help

    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...

    Wicked pissed off 😡

    I agree with you and Chryco. The TA's are more of a fashion statement now than anything else

    Did you order zero offset? It's possible there is (too much) negative offset. That would push the tires out.

    How rare is a cuda with factory air?

    Here's an example, kind of, sort of - (the article is about a GTX not an E Body) about what we've been talking about. Check Out the 1972 Plymouth Road Runner GTX 440+6 Chrysler Swore Never Existed

    Clutch Pedal Return Spring Noise

    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.

    Is my 1972 Challenger a Rallye?

    Apparently they should have been stamped "L" but there were very few production examples. Most were still stamped "H" regardless.

    Clutch Pedal Return Spring Noise

    Started to hear a clicking/spring noise from around the clutch pedal return spring when pressing down the clutch pedal. Looked for any obvious lube points but can't seem to get it right. Anybody else have this issue? Thanks!

    How rare is a cuda with factory air?

    Sorry, should have been more specific. Was generally referring to Chrysler, Ford and GM. Apparently when the Japanese started focusing more on Production Control and Quality is when our big three started to take better note...

    How rare is a cuda with factory air?

    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...

    Billboard quality comparison

    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. Just saying.

    Chipped 3rd & 4th Gears

    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...

    Hi - New here

    Yes you probably did see me in Erin. Most likely at the Legion Show every August. How long have you had the Challenger?

    Hi - New here

    Welcome from Brampton, Ontario! Really cool car. An LA factory built car is certainly the rarest.

    Question about aftermarket 5/6 speed manual transmissions

    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. As well...

    Incorrect Speed On Speedometer

    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?

    Incorrect Speed On Speedometer

    Might just move to a 36 tooth gear and be done with it
