(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...

    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!

    8.75 Oil Capacity

    Finally about to start the 3.55 swap from the 3.91 rear end. As the 8.75 rear end has an oil capacity of 4.4 pints I'm throwing it out for discussion to make sure any oil over fill is ok?? As oil is sold by the liter in Canada I'm going to use 2 liters of gear oil plus 4 oz posi additive. Net...

    CAST IRON Thermostat Housing

    Does anybody have a cast iron thermostat housing they want to sell? Don't need urgently but after looking at EBay some sellers want as much as the item for shipping to Canada!!! (It can easily ship USPS as a low value shipment) without all the EBay shipping drama & expense. Thx Steve
