The Classic Auto Show, presented by Hagerty Collector Car Insurance took place from March 16th– 17th, 2019. Previously held at the Los Angeles Convention Center in Los Angeles, California, the Classic Auto Show was held this year at the Orange County Fairgrounds in Costa Mesa, California. The show’s celebrity guests included Wayne Carini of Chasing Classic Cars, and Jessi Combs, who is a current land speed record holder. Only a handful of Mopars, most of which were very significant or one-off builds, were on display.

For performance driving (AX.HSAX, etc)... always increase a little vs daily driving. Where the heavier weight is (front engine)... run 2-4-6 psi higher than rear. Example street/hwy... front 34, rear 32..... AX/HSAX front 40, rear 36.. (some cars/tires etc... f 45, r 40, etc). You can also dial in understeer/oversteer/nuetrality.. experience and multiple events will tell you that.l

Look at TIRE RACK web site as they offer some recommendations.

For competition events, the chalk or shoe polish is a good practice, as well as temp measurements.

NOTE: www.mcscc.org MIDWESTERN COUNCIL OF SPORTS CAR CLUBS will have 5 season HSAX events this year 2019... Blackhawk Farms Raceway (HSAX School April April 27, HSAX race #1 May 27, HSAX race #2 July 5, HSAX race #3 July 6 (that's my club's race weekend!.. www.nsscc.org hope to see you there!). Joliet Autobahn HSAX race #4 July 20. BHF HSAX race #5 August 24. All these events are on www.motorsportreg.com for pre-registration (cost savings to pre-reg!). Also, all these events are HPDE (lapping sessions) morning and competition HSAX afternoon.

Reving an old thread. Does a casting date of “150” = Jan 5 1970, the 15th day of 1970, or the 15th week of 1970?

.. we run a 2-speed and we'll trap at 9200 in the quarter the only reason why we haven't geared for the 8th is starting line ratio on the crappy tracks we've been racing on however they have been getting better lately and I have been entertaining the idea of increasing the rear gear substantially..


Keep up the good work as you've got it running hard....We went from 3.89 to 4.29 in the rear and not sure if the move was to much but time will tell !!

Its still on my bucket list to do one. I have a 75' 400 block to use. I think short fill with aluminum main caps on a good block would last a good while on the street. I do street/strip and shows. The Hemi gets a lot of attention at the shows.

That’s good to know, guys. We restored this car 15 years ago and it had the wrong motor and lots of wrong parts on it. Not sure where we found some of them but I do have a couple of 66-67 440 motors here at the shop that I pulled lots of parts from for the ac parts. I know more about 69-71 oem stuff. I do have new straight ones here already so with the right hose, we’ll be good.

Moparts Question and Answer
04/17/19 11:03 AM
Thanks for the reply John, you are a wealth of knowledge, I would have never thought it would have been something that easy, I would of been bummed if I tore it apart and put it back together only to have it do the exact same thing. I guess If I have time over the summer I might pop that out and either get one with holes or take it in to work and add some myself. Any advice on the early shifts other than adjusting the kickdown linkage?

First thing is open up the prop valve all the way then bleed the
brakes again.. after bleeding try them again and see if the rears
lock up.. if they do adjust the prop.. a prop valve just slows down
the fluid so maybe you had your to tight and it was slow putting
on the rears.. prop valves should be open to bleed

Ever seen Stacey David's Sgt Rock? Maybe not exactly a 440, but still a big block. SGT. ROCK

As for the OP's truck, very cool! thumbs

Here's the extended pick-up that comes with the Kevco oil pan.
It has a bracket to support it on a main cap bolt.
Actually Kevco sells a new bolt with a stud portion to fit that bracket and secure it with a nut.

On the recommendation of A&A as well as a couple other high end trans builders I put Raybestos GPZ clutches in the trans I'm building for my current project. I should have it in the car in a few weeks and will report the performance.

I took the springs from my 78 Sport Fury into the spring shop when I got it, asked just for them to rearch them. Didn't cost me much, but didn't last the rest of that season either. Only time I ever "just" had a set reached w/o adding a leaf. wound up doing the 80s high school patch..... air shocks. don't like my Mopars looking like 70s GM's seems every one of those cars looked like they were dragging @$$. Out of this set of springs that came from my son's 90 W250, I hope to get a pair for each Dakota (2) and a pair of add a leaves for that car. no leaves were broke on that truck. it sat decent and took a load pretty well, but my son makes more $$$ than ol' Dad, so he decided to replace them when he put the flat bed on.
Im gonna do the 96 4wd Dakota 1st, went by the spring shop today and picked up the new center bolts, spring clips, inter leaf pads and U bolts..... the Fury will be last, because I haven't even got it out yet this year, its stored 30 miles away in Mom's garage.

No, you got junk bushings.


The reason you don;t tighten certain bushings until weight is on the then is so as to not preload the rubber. If you just tightend that nut without any load on the LCA and it came apart you have junk bushings.
