    Snubbies are proof that Mopars were very advanced vs the competition with their traction bars, ladders bars, etc. Just a quick bolt on, effin genius.

    '66 Plymouth Fury (III) Brake Advice (needed)

    I was at the parts picking up shoes for a '69 D200 Adventurer "all they could or had in stock get was bonded shoes", at a lower price, no availability on the riveted, but upon looking in the box they were the most gorgeous riveted shoes, misboxed, so I bought all existing stock on the spot.

    '66 Plymouth Fury (III) Brake Advice (needed)

    Drum brakes for all their antiquity do quite well, as well as intended, much more resistant to the elements and road spray. Rotors rust fast. Drum brakes generally don't freeze up from sitting. Cold rotors with the wrong pads right on someone's bumper, you better have a foot like Hercules, or...

    Warm engine stalling

    So electrical it was, but lean = stalling vs slightly rich = power & cooler running. Set the mixture screws lean enough and you will hurt power and driveablility, lean enough and the engine will pop through the carburetor on sharp acceleration. Note to self and others; Try not to look...

    Fans and cores rarely ever go out. Cores can be repaired, rebuilt even. Something to note is on some Mopar applications like on the trucks is that the hoses on the firewall are not attached to the core but to "thru tubes" that go through the firewall, a genius invention that allows techs to...

    Tire size recommendation

    It's become a bit of a struggle to find 185/70/14 for mid 90's Subaru wagons (mine), but they're still some decent choices like Defenders, but not nearly as much as 15's, you get into some nice Bridgestones, some of the toughest tires made and when you live in gravel like we do, that matters...
