Has anyone used an O2 sensor and Volt Meter to measure AFR (Air Fuel Ratio) to tune carb?

Posted by: | Comments Comments Off on Has anyone used an O2 sensor and Volt Meter to measure AFR (Air Fuel Ratio) to tune carb?
So I have been thinking..... I want to make sure that my carb isn’t too rich or too lean. I could take it to a shop with an exhaust sniffer and pay $100 -$150 for them to adjust my carb air screw. But I started reading about wide band air flow sensors and gauges. Most require you to drill a hole in your exhaust pipe before the muffler and either weld in a bung or they make clamp on ones as well. I am not sure I want to do that as I am not looking for a permanent sensor installed. I am...

‘68 Polara Alignment by the book

Posted by: | Comments Comments Off on ‘68 Polara Alignment by the book
Last year when I finished putting my car together I got a Quick Trick Alignment system. I figured that two trips to an alignment shop would pay for it. Plus most don’t know how to do it anyway. I did the first alignment last year. Now that I have a couple of thousand miles on it I figured my new rubber bushings have settled in. I will go through the whole process and talk about the Pro’s and cons of the quick trick system as I go. Start with a flat work area. No hoist yet....

Posted by: | Comments Comments Off on 1968 Dodge Dealer price sheets. Do they exist?
I see examples of window stickers from time to time but have not seen any dealer price guides. Do they exist?
I am curious on pricing and options. If you have any’68 examples of the window sticker or a dealer price guide please post.

Steering wheel paint, any suggestions?

Posted by: | Comments Comments Off on Steering wheel paint, any suggestions?
My original steering wheel for my ‘68 Polara was totally sun baked and cracked. I found a NOS new one on EBay around 10 years ago. The problem was that it was brown instead of maroon. I had the shop that did my body work and paint. Do my steering wheel as well. It turned out beautiful and had the proper tone(not glossy).
However after a season of driving about 2000 miles, the oils from my hands is taking the clear coat off.
I have never seen a NOS maroon/ Burgundy wheel so I need to make...
