Secondary Indicator Lights

Posted by: | Comments Comments Off on Secondary Indicator Lights
I obtained a console (not for this car Ford my guess '80's vintage) I'm working to install in my '63 Plymouth, about 20 things to do to make this work; but giving it a go. The console has four indicator lights originally for low washer fluid, fuel, door ajar, & head lights. I want to convert to show blinkers, head, and brake lights. My question is, if anyone has done this trick, I'd like to know any experiences you had pro & con doing this. I know it's a matter of splicing into the wires...

Recurrent air leak at base of carburetor

Posted by: | Comments Comments Off on Recurrent air leak at base of carburetor
LA 360 (non-Magnum) with Edelbrock Performer intake and ThermoQuad. I'll tighten down the carb bolts but they seem to loosen up again, causing a random miss at idle and low RPM. This has happened twice now. Maybe it is some problem with the base gasket shrinking? Should I should use some Copper Coat gasket spray? Any suggestions appreciated.

Anyone know anything about this dealer? Apparently my Charger was there at one point in its life.

I've seen quite a few ads from this particular dealer just wondering the history.

Also my charger has this surviving dealer sticker preventing me from rechroming the bumper. I was thinking I could find another bumper and use this for wall art. What do you think?

If you have any ads please post them.

TS Switch Needed

Posted by: | Comments Comments Off on TS Switch Needed
OK ...would like to know why the 1968 Dodge Dart Turn Signal (TS) switch is either less than $100 or close to $200 on Ebay. Mine is "kaputs" and needs to be replaced. Has anyone purchased a TS switch for about $90 on Ebay? Does it work after installation? Does it fit properly. I know NOS will fit and work but I need to not spend so much for a TS switch.

thx....great forum, great A-body people, you have helped me so many times. Car is a 1968 Dodge Dart 270 and fully restored (almost) except...

Rad Leak

Posted by: | Comments Comments Off on Rad Leak
Bought a 22" restored rad from a member here that was suppose to be brand new. Still have a hang tag showing mopar number and size. I installed it and filled it with fluids and sat for 3 days and was ok. Got engine all hooked up and started it and ran for 20 minutes. Next day I noticed a 1" diameter puddle on floor and looked at rad ....the lower rad support also had antifreeze sitting in it. Let the car sit while doing the dash and interior wiring and it did not leak over the last 2 months...

Won’t stay running

Posted by: | Comments Comments Off on Won’t stay running
I have a 69 340 Formula "S". Rebuilt the engine and purchased a rebuilt AVS. Replaced the riser. Car has been sitting since 78. Engine starts great but won't stay running, Timing & fuel pump are not an issue. The engine doesn't gradually shut down. It just stops. It will start again immediately but the run time gets shorter and shorter. Any suggestions? Thank you.
