1964 Chrysler 300k brake upgrade

Posted by: | Comments Comments Off on 1964 Chrysler 300k brake upgrade
I'm looking to upgrade my booster and single master cylinder while I'm changing out my steering gear. This claims to fit my 4 wheel Drum set-up.

Does anyone have any advice on the matter? Is this just a straight bolt on with nothing else needed? As always, thanks guys! View attachment 377934

1964 Chrysler 300 letter steering box

Posted by: | Comments Comments Off on 1964 Chrysler 300 letter steering box
Ive banged my head against the wall trying to figure this out. Like the title says I need a new steering gear/box. and its extremely hard to find one for this model. Does anyone know if any other model Mopar has an interchangeable one with the 300 letter cars?

This car is so hard to find OEM parts for. ugh, any help is greatly appreciated.

Starting issue(thinking distributor) PICS*

Posted by: | Comments Comments Off on Starting issue(thinking distributor) PICS*
1964 Chrysler 300k with 413 PO installed a newer distributor with electric ignition. Run fine for a bit then all of a sudden I cant get it to start. Got a new battery, sounds like the starter is working properly(also tried the tapping on it trick, did not work), I can see fuel entering the carb when I move the throttle arm, went to check the distributor and one of the wires was really loose connected to the cap and I pulled it and it looked burnt to heck. Here pics. I'm assuming this isn't...

1964 Chrysler 300k torsion bars

Posted by: | Comments Comments Off on 1964 Chrysler 300k torsion bars
Everywhere I've looked all mopars torsion bar adjustment bolts are located at the front on the car on the Lower control arm. However on my 300k the adjustment bolt is located to the rear of the torsion bar about below the front seats much like a Silverados suspension. Has anyone seen this before on an old mopar??

Btw I'm looking for some larger diameter bars and would like to know if any 41" mopar bars would work. Any help would be great!

Throttle issue with carboretor

Posted by: | Comments Comments Off on Throttle issue with carboretor
I'm sure this is an easy fix but I couldn't find any info on how to correct. 413 with demon carb.

The "throttle bracket" squeaks and isn't smooth at all and causes a bad gas pedal feel. Is this s spring issue, lube issue?

Any help would be REALLY helpful, thanks guys.

1964 413 Power steering pump questions.

Posted by: | Comments Comments Off on 1964 413 Power steering pump questions.
I recently bought this 1964 300k with the 413. It had a REALLY bad power steering leak and was missing the resivore cap. Now I'm on my third "rebuild kit" for this exact application, the first 2 kits had o-rings that were far too big in diameter. But anyway a few questions. Btw i believe this pump is a Thompson style.

-how do I install this pulley back on? As you can see the shaft is plain-end with no threaded port for an installer tool.

-or would it be better swapping over to a Saginaw...
