I have to agree here.

They did better in 62 than 70,remove shield behind left rear wheel and tank comes right out and you can't see anything from outside !! shruggy

How close to the correct finish are you?


Who the hell knows ... without the tool to measure RA its a guess. BUT I did watch a video about head gaskets and deck finishes and I don't think its smooth enough. Even the machine shop says its not smooth enough for MLS gaskets.

Moparts Question and Answer
04/20/19 04:28 PM
I ran a '66 housing in my M for a number of years. The first install I just pushed the springs outwards and kept the ISO rubber sandwich mounting for the rear. The only fabrication involved with this method was drilling out the spring pads on the axle with a 1 9/16" hole saw to accommodate the centering pin. I never liked this as you could actually see springs bowed outward from the rear of the car. Did this hurt anything? Probably not, ran the car like that for ten years.

Eventually I decided to do away with the ISO setup and mount the axle directly to the springs. Used B body shock plates and had normal B body spring perches welded to the axle further apart so I didn't have to kick the springs out. Changed the locating pins in the springs and if you plan on running a factory rear sway bar you'll need the mounting plates from Firm Feel. Those go between the axle and spring.

From what I understand there is no difference in the wheel wells from your 78 wagon vs my 87 sedan. With the '66 housing I was able to run a 27" tall 285 mounted on a 9" rim with 5" of backspace. It would rub a little on the inside of the wheel well in the front under hard turns.

My only comment from experience is that the absolute quietest, and best performing dishwashers are Bosch.

If you eliminate that valve for an adjustable valve you will loose your "redundancy" in the brake system. Kinda voids the fact you have a dual master.

I’m looking for a set of front (15x4-5in) and rear (15x8in 4-4.5”BS) 5x4.5 bolt pattern aluminum slots. They’re going on a patina 71 Duster so I’m not looking for show quality look or price. Pairs of ether size, possibly even singles considered too.

Well then AMD is selling a Spectra Tank that is a lot cheaper. It may not be made by Spectra, idk. I read between the lines and it is raw steel and not coated like the Spectra Premium I found st Summit. I’ll check eBay but I could not find one the first time. I think the customer decided on a stainless one I found at vans on eBay. Thanks for the input.

The lime color car is here in Nor Cal. Runs and drives.

I've been to Carlisle many times and I have seen some of the nightmares.

I also bought a U code 70 Challenger R/T automatic, Super High Performance axle package car that came from NY. Decklid would CRACKLE when you opened it.


I have bought cars that the decklid and its understructure were two separate pieces,and you could see right through both to the ground!

The AMD floor pan fits well,and since the cars are indeed unitized construction,you want to get the sturdiest part possible. The AMD floor pan is made of heavier guage metal than the others on the market,for the difference in price,it is worth it to have a stronger piece.

2. What is the recommended minimum radial valve clearance (clearance between edge of valve and valve relief in piston)?

Thanks,
