the black paint in the bottom makes it totally unattractive.
More like a 20k $ car to me

Yes. I had the calipers produced with 2 bleeder valves, so they will fit all A/B/E/F/M/J/R body (slider) applications from '62-'89.

I think I paid $300 for my OD trans. It came with the SB bellhousing, complete clutch, flywheel, throwout fork/bearing, and OD trans. Only think I need to complete a swap is the z-bar and pedal stuff and shifter. Trans condition is unknown but the other stuff is good. A beat up A833 is 4-500 around here and the ODs actually sell for about $200 less from what I've seen.

walker site has a few numbers listed. was wondering if anyone has used the dynomax super turbo # 17747. says its a direct replacement. just don't want a drone...

I have a pair of 17747s on my 440 75 Charger - the rumble is great at idle as is the roar at WOT. In the middle there is a bit of drone but it's not horrible. Also put a pair of 17748s on my 318 RC, same muffler with different pipe sizes. Same good rumble, not as much roar because less cubes and much less drone. Might have something to do with clearance between muffler and floor on B body vs truck.

My LRE is running NAPA 21848s which are probably Walkers. The body is an inch longer than the ones above and my notes say they came with a lifetime warranty. At the moment I've got 15 yrs and 25,000 miles on them. Sound great, loud without being annoying, zero drone.

I heard good things about VR1

I had read about 10-50 vs 0-50 The 10-50 weight maybe better due to the modifiers.

Hey Rick, this one is getting a solid street roller.

The rocker type, and the ratio is probably the biggest thing.

If I'm looking at it correctly, the shorter the "arm" on the pushrod side (higher the rocker ratio), the more likely the pushrod will hit the bottom of the tube.
At least it seems this way comparing 1.52 to 1.55+

I've got good piston to valve clearance (now that I'm on my second cam), my intake valve relief has a little extra to accomodate the Edelbrock valve, so
that all seems good to go.

Pretty small bump in the road really, but something tells me I'm not the first to encounter this.

That's definitely an awkward looking piece. How are most guys mounting them? Don't see much on brackets, etc here.

Fast68plymouth is right. You really need to know the pressure at the calipers in order to diagnose your problem.

Here's a link for a pressure gauge that you can use to measure the pressure. The gauge screws into the bleeder valve and is read directly off the gauge.

Hope this helps.

If it were me, I'd tear down the old fence and replace the posts with treated 4X4's on 8' centers, with 30 lbs of concrete around each post. Removing the old posts is easy. Once all the other structure is off of the posts, smack them at the bottom on all four sides with a sledge hammer and they'll slip right out of their concrete base (assuming they have concrete around the bottom). Leave the old concrete where it's at. Use a twine string line and a level to keep your fence nice and straight. Because of your temperature extremes, I'd probably screw it together with coated deck screws rather than use nails. If you use nails, don't cheap out; get good galvanized nails.
EDIT: Digging around here is easy (sand) and concrete is necessary. Might not be the case in MI.

What we did on our 6 pack choke , (we use the blocked pan) was fab in a heat coil used on some chokes
and turn it on when starting to increase available heat to the coil.

We use a lighted on-off switch mounted in the ash tray for about 5 minutes.
Then the engine heat migrates enough to keep it open.

Wouldn't it be funny if the VIN was there, but they covered over it with the tweed?

R.I.P.Rod Hall, there was a guy at Carlisle last year in the truck show that had a restored "Rod Hall Edition truck" he said they didn't make many and his was only one of a few, it was cool truck though. I found an article in an old Mopar magazine about the trucks and am going to give it to him if he is there this year.

I’m guessing the transfer case unavailability is because it was still attached to the 360/727 and was sold for $500 to cover the cost of the swap components lol. If you could get it for 5K it would be a decent deal still, but I’m guessing a$$hat thinks its magically worth 15K, real “basic bro” vibe coming from that ad
