    1967 Chrysler 300 Gauge Location

    I stopped by the garage where I store my car and took some pics of the gauges I added. I have the battery unhooked so they are not lit up. The temp gauge is on the left, it was a bit too wide for the opening so I mounted it behind where I can see it. The voltage gauge is on the right, and is...

    1967 Chrysler 300 Gauge Location

    I was going to but in all of the hundreds of photos I have I don't have any of that. Unbelievable! My car is put away for the winter, but I may run by to check on it this week. If I do I'll take some pics and share them.

    1967 Chrysler 300 Gauge Location

    FYI - I mounted voltage and temp gauges where my ashtrays were, so when I close up the ashtray drawer you don't see the them at all.

    A 67 Newport just landed in my Barn

    Congrats on getting this great car! So much potential, I'm glad it's going to get the attention it deserves! Regarding the paint, the paint code on the fender tag is BM2. I did some digging, and based on what I have that means that it was a custom paint order with a black roof and turbine...

    Harmonic damper / crank pulley wobbling?

    I presume you're referring to the bolt holding the harmonic balancer. To do that on my car that I made this holder out of a scrap piece of wood using the pulley as a template. I put 3 or 4 of the pulley bolts through it into the harmonic balancer, it wedged against the frame as I was...

    So I bought this one today.

    Here in Western NY the roads are pretty salty for most of the winter, and we have lots of 2 lane roads. The whole car gets pretty salty, of course, but it's normal for the driver's side to get extra salt spray from the the oncoming traffic. Perhaps that has something to do with this car's...

    SOLD 1971 Fury I

    This car is very similar to cars my father would purchase for our school system back in the 70s. He was the Business Manager, and would purchase very low optioned cars on 'State Bid' for school personnel to drive. They'd be kept for a year and then sold, usually for more that what the state...

    I think the bolt pattern for Jeep Grand Cherokees was 5x4.5 until the 1999 model year, when they went to a 5x5 pattern. No idea on the offset, though.

    '68 Fury PS return control valve leaking

    FWIW, I had a leak at exactly the same place on my 67 Newport, and it was leaking pretty good. I bought a Power Steering Control Valve Seal Kit from Rock Auto to get the necessary o rings (I bought the most expensive one they had, and it was like 4 bucks). This kit has all of the o rings...

    It´s time for the Slab picture thread

    This past weekend I had the honor of being the “tailgunner” for a motorcycle fund raising ride. The group is the Western New York Riding Lions, a relatively new Lions Club with members from all over Western New York. I am a long time Lion in my home town, and I am their “Guiding Lion”. The ride...

    Fan Shroud for 1967 Plymouth Sport Fury Needed

    FWIW - After I had the 22" radiator on my 67 Newport with a 383 and no ac recored, it runs right around 180 degrees regardless of the outside temp, underway or idling. It's the factory radiator with no shroud, so maybe a shroud isn't necessary? Before I had it recored I was having consistent...

    Stromberg WWC Carburetor question

    To all who replied, THANK YOU for your expert advice! This is the most awesome forum of experts! We're making a last minute trip to Raleigh so I won't be able to try the suggestions here for a couple of weeks. When I do I'll report back with updates on what I found. Again, THANK YOU!

    Stromberg WWC Carburetor question

    Hello folks, I have a question that I hope this group can help with. My 67 Newport 383 has a Stromberg WWC 2 barrel carburetor. I rebuilt it last year and the car runs great. My issue is that after a day or so I have to pour some gas into the carburetor to get it to start. Once I do that it...

    Darrell Brown loved this car to death

    This is the first time I've seen this thread, what a great story! The amount of rust that was revealed on that car was pretty amazing, it didn't look too bad as a 20 footer. Mr. Brown was a couple of years younger than my father in law is, and he still loves his Mopars too. Good stuff...
