904 confusion

Posted by: | Comments Comments Off on 904 confusion
Hey guys I finally got my 904 in after putting it off in my 78 lebaron. But I’m having some issues. I had the trans (non lockup) rebuilt with the stage 3crt kit their budget converter, and a trans go shift improver had a good friend (does trans work on the side) go threw it with a fine tooth comb. He admitted he hadn’t had a mopar trans apart in almost 15 years but was confident in his ability and having a rebuild book. Guy rebuilds 4-5 trans a year..

Tucked bumpers?

Posted by: | Comments Comments Off on Tucked bumpers?
Don’t flame me if it’s been discussed before I tried searching n couldn’t find anything..

has any one “tucked� the front and or rear bumpers on a 77-79 m body? Ik they have the heavy bumper “absorbers� and the filler panels. Ik the Chebie guys tuck their mid 70s cars. But idk if anyone had a good step by step list of how to do it or has done it with an m body.

I’m sure racers have had to come up with a way to shed weight yet still keep the bumpers... Right? Lol

I’m looking into it for...

904 help

Posted by: | Comments Comments Off on 904 help
Looking to rebuild a 904 out of a doba for my Lebaron. But have some questions.

1. Do I need to worry about tailshaft or transmission overal length?
2. How can I determine what series of 904 it is for parts without the tag?(missing)
3. What rebuild kit, shift kit, and upgrades do you guys recommend?
Trans won’t see more then 450 horse 450ftlbs and 3:55 gears and street tires.

I’ll worry about converter once I decide on my engine combo.
Thanks in advance guys!!

New to the M-body

Posted by: | Comments Comments Off on New to the M-body
hey guys I just recently picked up this 2dr 78 LeBaron believe it’s a medallion for a steal. Being new to the m-body I have some questions that may come of newbish lol.
First question: are all m body platform parts interchangeable? Suspension and brakes and such? Like Ik late 60s darts and early 70s darts share very similar parts and can interchange without much headache. Is this the same with the m body?

Second question: is there any aftermarket support for these cars? I’m in need of...
