Drivers side markings on front eyelet of leaf spring

Looks like medium or pastel green on inside and white on outer side.

Anyone else find this on 66 Hemi Auto's?

Isn't there a list of leaf spring markings out there?

Any idea if there is a Gasket under the hood ornament?
Is there just the one data tag under hood? No hemi fender tag correct ?

Pulled the gas sender to check the tank and fuel condition.

Looks real good. Sucked the old gas out. Then blew out the body line.

If you have an opportunity please take some pictures of the original wheels. The stamping around the valve stem , area around the lug bolt holes, and stamping/ manufacturer inside the hoop if you pull the tires.
Thank you, Matt

Just a beautiful Satellite! I had a large size poster of a collage of Hemi Mopar's
when I was in high school back in the late 70's- early 80's. This (Pete Haldiman) Satellite was one of the cars
in that poster! Along with Marvin Hughes' '64 Hemi Dodge, and a handful of other Hemi cars.
I also am sure I had a copy of that Car Craft magazine too, with the SuperCar Shootout.
Wish I still had them. Good luck with that Plymouth! up

Actually that's a gold Hemi Bel II is a convertible (I believe Hughes’)

Pete’s car was the 69 Hemi 500 with dealer vinyl top. Sold to C500's dad. And Radke's Hemi Daytona replaced it (now Lembeck's in F6)

The poster was from Automobile Quarterly. AQ used pictures of Pete’s 500 for an article on Wing Cars.

I bought this poster never used about 5 or so years ago at a Spring Fling. From my garage wall right now:

Yup, that's the poster! My memory is fuzzy, sorry, I just remembered a gold Plymouth
in that poster, didn't remember it being a convertible...it been over forty years, since I last
saw it. wink Regardless, you have a gorgeous car, I hope you get many years of happiness with it. up

I can offer this pic of a set of original seals from a 68 4 door v-8 coronet.
I cannot recall if there was anything passing through the slotted hole on the smaller piece.

Just brake clean and brass wire brushes. Lightly go over with steel wire brushes as last resort. And repetition.

Wenol polish on the brass. And some wenol on stains in corners with a Q-tip and/or stiff plastic brush.

I did notice the special carb nuts. They have a slightly raised then machined flat surface to the ends.
