Engine installation question

Posted by: | Comments Comments Off on Engine installation question
CUDAVRT has been disassembled, the slanty and automatic have been removed, and it is about to get painted. Soon, I will be installing the new 273 and 4-speed combo.

Questions:
Can the engine/trans assembly be installed from above as a unit, or must the engine and trans be installed separately?

Should the Y-pipe be installed before the engine is installed?

I would be easy if the radiator support could be removed, but...

Thanks i n advance,
Stroker

1968 Dodge Dart GTS 340 Build

Posted by: | Comments Comments Off on 1968 Dodge Dart GTS 340 Build
I picked up this car almost a year ago, I'll start working on it for a while then switch over to other projects. I like to consider myself a 50-60's customizer, not a muscle car guy, but I do have a fondness for old Mopars, especially the late 60's Dodges. I'm not a purest, custom is better. Here's how its going. View attachment 1715060956
What I am told the car was a donor car for a 6? 4 door dodge dart, then left outside where somebody was able to throw rocks through the windows....

No power to anything

Posted by: | Comments Comments Off on No power to anything
Although it's not an A body, it's still mopar so I figured this question would fit nicely here. I just came home after a 3 month period overseas and my 99 dodge 2500 v10 is completely cold iron. So without hesitation, I tossed in a new battery and attempted to fire it up. Nothing. Took the alternator in to get tested and it checks out just fine. I then popped open the fuse box and everything looked intact and good to go. I swapped a couple compadable relays but, still no power. I even...

73 Dart Sport Suspension upgrade

Recently purchased a 73 Dart Sport 340, the resto is 80% done on it. But after a good 300 mile trip I'm really considering updating the suspension and steering to drasticly improve the OEM system.
Now this is an all original #'s car, am I crazy to want to do this or what? It handles pretty decent for a 44 year old car but I want this to be a summer cruiser that the wife & kids could drive too and not white knuckle it ;)

Steering column upper bearing replacement

Posted by: | Comments Comments Off on Steering column upper bearing replacement
hey guys and gals, I hope you all had a great weekend. Ever since I bought my scamp I've have a rattle in my steering column. With I turn the wheel left or right, it sounds like metal scraping. Lately the rattle has been worse, to the point I can hear it over the exhaust and radio!

Can someone point me in the right direction on replacing it? Does this sound like the symptoms of a bad upper bearing?

Thanks for the help!
