    1971 R/T Stripe Measurements

    Thanks for your help. I think I can handle this now.

    1971 R/T Stripe Measurements

    I want to install these R/T stripes, but not in the wrong place. Does anyone have a measurement from top of stripe to door body line. I have looked at the engineering drawing for it, but cannot decipher it. "I'm a pharmacist, Jim. Not an engineer." Anyway, measurements for the door decal...

    Exhaust Pops Sound Like Gunshots

    Thanks Challenger RTA. Always check the simplest things first. I now have the best running 340 in the county, and all I had to do is switch 6 and 8 to their proper orientation. Amazing what the correct firing order will do for an engine.😡

    Exhaust Pops Sound Like Gunshots

    I just successfully broke in my newly rebuild 340, and it sounded great. After a few days of other tasks, I restarted it and got random, very loud exhaust pops from the right side. Alarming! Those "pops" disappear with increased rpm, but come back at idle. It is idling nicely other than...

    Flip Top fuel cap

    My 71 R/T has a flip top cover but no fuel cap. I have looked everywhere to find a cap that works. Just a plain fuel cap. Anybody out there having the same issue? When I bought the car, it had a trashed locking cap with "753" on the top. I saw where some have used the "Stant 10571" locking...

    Headlight relay trouble

    Low beam is a 4 pin, so that's the easy one. High beam needs one that activates 87 and 87a. Thanks

    Headlight relay trouble

    I think I have found success. First, the polarity on the Wagner halogens was contrary to everything I had read until I did some more research. So I fixed that. Then I realized that the low beam relay was only passing 6 volts through it. A new relay fixed that. The only thing I see as an...

    Headlight relay trouble

    Here's the latest. I cleaned all the ground areas and reattached all the ground wires. Same thing - faint illumination of the high beams on low and dim low beam when high is activated. So I grounded all headlights to the battery and got the same result. Stumped. So is is the dimmer switch...

    Headlight relay trouble

    I used Wagner halogens H5001 (high) and H5006 (Lo/High) Relay test was ok.

    Headlight relay trouble

    I did a headlight relay conversion on my 71 Challenger, and encountered some problems. Whane low beams are on, the high beam headlights have an ever so slight illumination. When the high beam is initiated by the dimmer switch, the highs (inside units) are very bright, but the lows (outside...

    PCV Setup with Cast Aluminum Valve Covers

    I looked around to see if this subject had been addressed before, but didn't find a satisfactory answer. The valve covers have a twist-in hole and a "knock-out" hole in each. I'm not too keen on putting another hole in one cover for a PCV valve. The twist-in holes have a baffle under them, so...

    Oil Filter Adapter Plate

    I went to the junk yard and retrieved a plate off a 318. Cleaned it up and wouldn't you know - it fits just fine. The Mancini piece is obviously for a magnum block. I drilled extra holes for better oil flow and mounted it up. No receipt so I'm stuck with the Mancini piece. At least I have one...

    Header installation 340 r/t

    I just finished the installation of Doug's headers on my 71 R/T 340. After spending some time assessing how to get it done, I realized that taking a few minutes to drop the drag link would be the best approach. Everything was wide open and made it a breeze to install them. Reattaching the...

    Clutch Linkage/Z-Bar Pins

    I'm going to buy a new rod. The one that I have is obviously not the correct setup. It does not have the angled head for small blocks, the nuts, washers, spacers, etc. are wrong. All that and it's worn out.

    Clutch Linkage/Z-Bar Pins

    I'm wondering if I could weld a repair on the pin and grind it down to the original shape. The pin on the other arm isn't as bad. I am concerned about slop in the linkage that could affect clutch performance.

    Clutch Linkage/Z-Bar Pins

    I am in the process of rebuilding the z-bar on my 71 Challenger R\T 340. It is in reasonably good condition with the exception of the linkage pins on the arms. Lots of wear. Should this be corrected, or will it be ok to just put it back together? The clutch adjust rod end has quite a bit of...

    Upper door hinges

    Are e body upper door hinges identical left and right side? The reason I ask is that the upper left hinge on my Challenger has a "P" stamped on it. Thanks.
