Alan,
quite sure that is original latch assembly grease. As you know I am close to getting my latch resto
started. I have taken apart many latches and that yellow grease is not only visible from the outside ( like
in that picture Dave posted) but it is also found inside lubricating the moving parts.
Jules




Juels, I hope you get the latch resto goin soon

Similar to your car, I have the original tires that probably still have the original air in them since the owner put a set of Keystones on it almost immediately and put the tires, hubcaps and fender skirts in dry storage and they will probably stay there after I complete the car.




It appears both of us will need to use the same "carbon dating" kit in order to prove the validity of our statements. Steven Juliano spent the weekend visiting with me a couple of weeks ago and he ALSO spoke of a couple of his cars that tires have never been tweaked or inflated in over 20 years.
So the question is Shannon, who is going to purchase the carbon dating equipment? Do you want me to get the test unit and ship it to you after I have completed testing or should I wait for you to get it and then rent it from you at a later date?
Why do these things always have to get so complicated?

Thanks again!


We have a full lab at work, but no carbon dating equipment.....Yet! Maybe I can shove it in on a CA sometime and justify it as Engineering Cost. I like the guys idea above too, date coded air compressor may save us all some time, I assume my tires may need to be topped off a little anyway.



Along with using a date coded air compressor, may I suggest using this air compressor only in the general vicinity of where your assembly plant is/was. The compressor will also need to have the air in it pumped out leaving only a vacuum, we don't need contaminated air.




The air is already contaminated,I'm back!




So, does that mean your a complete jerk to everyone you know, or just the people you are jealous of? There are too many jealous petty people in this world that criticize others to mask their own lack of ability. Enjoy being making an A$$ of yourself, it does serve to amuse the rest of us.




Critical again. 96 posts and not one single constructive bit of help.

Dave,
I gave you a very good word of advice a while ago--IGNORE.
Just do your thing. Many here appreciate your efforts and many will
use your sweat to do their projects correctly. STOP wasting your time with
those that have NOTHING constructive to add to a thread.
Keep up the great work.
Jules

I know you guys are right. But sometimes you can hardly control the urge to jump in and assist the rats with chasing their own tails!

Thanks Bob!
We will have updates on all kinds of unique findings as the project progresses. We don't offer this information as mandatory instructions to argue over but as a factual basis of details for those who are interested in factory assembly line procedures. Any and ALL suggestions are welcome regarding the direction we take as this project progresses! While this vehicle may be different from other models, certain characteristics will also be applicable to other contrasting cars. Let us know if there are any specific areas you would like to see in detail!

Just ran across this thread. I think it's a cool idea!

I'm looking forward to the information that will be brought forth from this research. Stuff like this is what keeps the hobby interesting for me... thanks for including all of us in your project!

Here are a few more detail shots. One thing that has not been discussed is the odd setup that this car was manufactured with. It is a slant six but came with front MANUAL disc brakes! It also has an 8 3/4 rear end with 3.21:1 gears and posi-traction. This odd setup was one of the main reasons I was drawn to this 4 door Valiant. Two build sheets came with the car so it was easy to document all of the car's factory options. (It also has a rear window defogger.) Has anyone else seen this type of drive train setup in a six cylinder car?

Are those two different head size screws on the fender tag or just the angle of the photo?

Hi Dave,
Did not know that Valiants where built in Hamtramck.I learn something new every day here with your Posts.
My Cuda has a SPD of 418 just 2 days and 1577 cars later.
Thanks for the help
Bob

I gotta say this is quite intresting. I never see this kind of attention paid to an a body. But Im glad it is. Especially since it's the most uncommon choice ever. Sweet!

Dave I have a question on the horns.The horn you have the photo of, appears to have a bolt securing the horn to the bracket.Thus allowing the horn to be pivoted about the bracket.Do you know if this style was a replacment horn,or to what cars the solid mount was original to?

Back in 79 my wifes 71 6cyl Dart Swinger Special (low end of line) had air,rim blow wheel,front sway bar,disc brakes and 8 3/4 sure grip.Don't know ratio but on a trip to Canada it made 26mpg.


This is how it ended up.

Yes, the screws have two different size heads on them. The pictures we are taking are really close in proximity to the parts so we can put things back exactly as they were.
