    Timing Vacuum...

    Rick Ehrenberg says all street cars should use vacuum advance. He says bad things can happen to the engine down the road. I don't know, I am just hobbyist. I see guys running without vacuum advance on their street cars at car shows all the time. I just watched the video by Uncle Tony. He says...

    Timing Vacuum...

    That’s very interesting CP. I never heard of a counter rotating distributor but hey you learn something new every day. Both Rick Ehrenberg and Uncle Tony (from You Tube) say to use ported vacuum along with my old shop teacher. You’re right though as I have read on various forums people will...

    Timing Vacuum...

    I have an Eddy carb too. The timing shouldn't jump if it is connected to ported vacuum because there is no vacuum at idle with ported vacuum.

    Timing Vacuum...

    Also all of your timing may not be in at 2K RPM. On my 440 I always set it at 34 degrees at 3K RPM.

    Timing Vacuum...

    The way I learned it was that vacuum advance gets hooked up to ported vacuum. That’s the way I did it on all my engines. I know some people say you can use manifold vacuum. I tried that once and the engine ran worse. Just my experience.

    looking for my moms first car

    I did go to the Doylestown show yesterday and I had a great time. I got there at 10:15am and stayed until noon. I walked the show cars twice. Unfortunately I did not see the ‘74 Challenger in question. I was surprised to see some really high dollar cars there.

    Plymouth emblem hood location

    You’re welcome. I had a feeling that would be the case but it couldn’t hurt to try.

    Plymouth emblem hood location

    I have a hood that I know for fact is from a '73 and it has the 3 holes for the emblem. I will measure the distance to the holes if you want but I don't have an emblem to put in there and measure it with the emblem in place.

    A66 Questions

    Thank you very much Phil. That explains it. I do have the fender tag but as I mentioned I can't read the whole tag. Still working on that. Strange though, the original owner said he thought he was getting the stripe so how could he have deleted it? Something strange went on here. Thanks Ben.

    looking for my moms first car

    This is a great story. I too hope it has a happy ending. I am going to an All Mopar Show this coming Sunday (not today) in Doylestown, PA. Doylestown isn’t that far from Philly or Allentown. You never know right? So I will keep an eye for it. No offense and maybe it is my Mopar bias talking...

    Thanks a lot guys. I am looking forward to it. I wish I could bring a car but both of my cars are out of commission. Hopefully, next year.

    A66 Questions

    I have been lucky enough to find the original owner of my A66 Challenger. I found out it was a special order car. I asked him why he didn’t order a power top and Rallye/Magnum wheels? Also why is there no evidence of a Bumblebee stripe? He said on all three accounts he thought he was getting...

    All Mopar Show Doylestown, PA 09/20

    I just found out about this show. I emailed the person on the ad a few minutes ago to make sure it isn’t cancelled. Anybody else from this forum planning to go? Or have any information about it?

    Glad to be here with Mopar folks, Earl...

    Are your spark plugs and wires in good condition? How about the firing order? Is that correct? One time I mixed up the wires going to cylinder 5 and 7 on a 318 and it had a similar problem.

    Glad to be here with Mopar folks, Earl...

    Welcome aboard Earl! Possible vacuum leak? Is the first thing that comes to mind. I know I had a car that did that back in the day but I can’t remember what the cause was. Is the vacuum advance hooked to ported vacuum? Keep us posted.

    Passon 4-speed with O/D...

    I have the Passon 4 speed OD and I love it. I bought it about 10 years ago. The 5 speed wasn't available then. Back then it cost me about $2500 because Jamie gave a $500 credit on the parts from my original 4 speed which were in excellent condition. Once I put it in OD I go from a 3.91 to 3.13...

    Vanishing Point Mystery Girl Pic

    That’s it! I knew I had seen her somewhere. She looked familiar but more specifically I knew I heard that accent somewhere. Even “The Verdict” is an old movie these days. Really cool scene. I agree they should have left it in the movie. Never knew about before.
