426 dual 600 cfm – no power suddenly

Posted by: | Comments Comments Off on 426 dual 600 cfm – no power suddenly
I have a 426 Hemi with dual 600 Edelbrock carbs that are synchronized (I hope that's the right term) and has a MSD electronic ignition with a MSD Blaster for a coil. I went to a car show on the 4th - all went fine going there. On the way back home, I went about 2 blocks and suddenly I had very little power. I thought maybe I had popped out of gear, nope. I went another 2 blocks and made it to my country road home. I started playing with gears and gas then while driving. The car was...

LOC-TITE = PAINT STRIPPER WARNING

Posted by: | Comments Comments Off on LOC-TITE = PAINT STRIPPER WARNING
If you didn't know it, LOC-TITE is a paint stripper! I just spent all weekend sandblasting my front license plate brkt. and road lamp brackets, then primering them, and finally a nice paint job. I let them dry for 2 days and even baked them in the sun a while. I bought all new license plate hardware, bumpers, plate screw mounts, and even the P-nut metal mounting tab nuts. I have an elastomeric bumper in front so I didn't want to tighten the bracket screws through the bumper too much so I...

NEW Website for my ’70 ‘cuda convertible

Posted by: | Comments Comments Off on NEW Website for my ’70 ‘cuda convertible
For those interested, I just did finish making a new web site for my 1970 'cuda convertible. There are lots of pictures and I hope you enjoy it. It is my first loading of it, so I hope it all works properly.
Also, at this time, my fog lights are not on my car. I have the lights and brackets being sand blasted just this week in prep for returning them onto the front of my car.
Have fun! Phil

The link to my site is in my signature... That will tell me if that works too!

I had a beautiful morning with clear skies so I took my convertible to the marina for a quick photo shot. I'm working on a web page for my car and collecting some good shots for it. I hope to have it done soon. Enjoy!

Power options on fender tag

Posted by: | Comments Comments Off on Power options on fender tag
I am looking at another '70 cuda and this car obviously has the engine swapped from 318 to 426. But, I'm very suspicious of numerous addons that are not on the fender tag. Shouldn't options like: Ralleye gauges, power windows, Rim-blow ... all be on the fender tag as separate number entries? What about bumper guards (small bumperettes)?
