    Please help! 1970 Barracuda Exhaust Stud issue

    The only change I would make is to use a penetrating oil instead of WD40.

    Fuel Tank Requirements?

    If you plan on capping any of those tubes I would use a hose clamp or a nylon tie to secure the caps.

    shaker hood to cowl seal

    When I'm ready to install it, I'll put tape on the hood and position the seal with the end holes and mark the tape with a sharpie and then drill. Thanks to all for the input and pictures to get this done. Going away tomorrow for a week and a half so to be continued at a later date. Will let you...

    shaker hood to cowl seal

    I just laid the seal at the back lip of the hood and that shows that hood must be drilled for the supporting holes. The end angle brackets are there so that will give me where exactly it fits. I cheated and went on another site and the question came up and solution was drill the holes for the...

    shaker hood to cowl seal

    That makes sense on a Cuda to have the holes on the back of the lip of the hood, but the hood is not perforated for the supporting hardware. That is why I questioned maybe drilling the holes myself in the hood to support the seal. May be I'll give a call to DMT about this. I looked in the...

    shaker hood to cowl seal

    The header panel at the front of the engine bay doesn't have holes to secure the seal like I saw in the above Challenger picture.

    shaker hood to cowl seal

    Yes the seal at the front of the hood to radiator area. I think front seal is more important than rear cowl area. That rear seal probably prevents engine heat from entering the cowl vents.

    shaker hood to cowl seal

    If that's the case there must be a different seal for the shaker hood. My hood has the right angle bracket for the end pins and holes in the seal. Thanks for the picture and info. Cuda is a little different because it has the header panel for the hood.

    shaker hood to cowl seal

    I have an AMD shaker hood and trying to install the cowl seal but it seems like there are not enough holes in the hood to support the seal. None of the pictures show exactly how it is installed. I don't know if shaker hood even used a seal. I know there is one around bubble, but doesn't do the...

    WTB WTB Milodon 21535 Oil Pump Driveshaft and Milodon 18345 Oil pickup tube

    Is it A or B pump? Easier to know by engine type to even begin to look.

    EMS upgrade

    Does Mopar call the ECU an EMS unit? I thought maybe you needed an ambulance with EMT's.

    Mopar 727 small block transmission from 1987

    Lockup started towards late 70's. I had a 79 Aspen, slant 6, with a lockup convertor. Chrysler had problem with them with the converter splines getting stripped off the convertor. Another change that was never fully tested before sticking it on cars. I got stuck with it as a result of that problem.

    Nos upper control arm

    I have a set of upper control arms that are reproductions I bought from Mancini a few years ago and never installed. They have new bushings and new ball joints. Will only sell the pair for $200 plus shipping. Mancini # BU1857assy and I believe no longer available from them.

    Back in the Day Drive In Movie Theater

    The last outdoor movie I went to was when we drove out to California and saw Forest Gump. I believe it was 1992. When they were the "in thing" back in the 60's and 70's spent many a Sat. night in the back seat with a female companion. Sometimes too lazy to go in the back because front seats were...

    4 speed re install wont line up

    In another thread with this problem, I use B engine head bolts, remove just the head of the bolt using 2, and screw into the bellhousing to help line up the tranny.

    Cuda Shaker Hood - Where Buy?

    I know he sells the shaker hood parts, bought it from him, but not sure about the hood.

    Cuda Shaker Hood - Where Buy?

    I bought one last summer for a Cuda and they only had them with the hood pin openings. So I guess that was pretty much the last of them. AMD makes them but probably not a big enough demand for them or they would have been cranking them out. www.Stephensperformance would probably be your best bet...

    4 speed re install wont line up

    The good thing about the head bolt is there are no threads on the bolt after threaded in the bell housing and tranny slides in easier. Since I had a few 440's in my Cuda before the installation of a gen2 Hemi , I have plenty of left over head bolts, so a no cost option, and I think there grade 8.

    4 speed re install wont line up

    Another trick I've used is grind or cut the head of a b block head bolt off, the long ones, and screw 2 of them into the bell housing. Makes installation so much easier.

    4 speed re install wont line up

    The Tranny came out of the setup? Did you replace the Clutch plate and did you get the right spline clutch? When I blew the clutch on my 68 Road Runner 383 4 speed, I went to a dealer and he gave me the 18 spline clutch plate instead of the 23 spline plate. Had to go back and get the right one...
