    Need aftermarket Sure-Grip recommendations

    I bought the helical one Dr Diff has last year for the '64 Belvy. It works complaints. I had originally wanted a Detroit Locker but could not find anywhere at that time. Unfortunatly, i have not managed to compile enough time behind the wheel or miles on the car since last summer...

    Which Battery to get at Costco

    I'm pretty sure group 24 and 27 were the most popular sizes hands down, back in the '70's and beyond, if you don't include the GM products with the side screw terminals.

    I believe it would...funny how specs can be hard to find on brand new stuff.... The only critical dimensions for you are the c-c to the bolt mounts and the throat bores for the carb. Since you already know those dimensions if you have the manifold in hand, a quick call to Edelbrock before you...

    WANTED 8 34 Rear end housing around 57 to 58 flange to flange

    An accurate 8 3/4" rear axle width list Looks like mid to late '60's Imperial hits right on. I have a "C" body housing only. I could measure for you, but there's gotta be something way closer to you than me.

    Timing chain TNT 440 vendor

    If by three hole, you mean three bolt style, those are generally only needed for hipo or race cams. One bolt style, with alignment hole or slot is the one you want. All metal, double roller will last you a very long time.

    The progression of manifolds in stock form is really about the carb used more than flow. The 2806301 you mentioned may be nearly the best, if not the best flowing iron factory intake they made for 1-4bbl. It was used in the late '60's on 383HP engines. But since there is a progression from...

    Trying to find what transmission is in my 1972 Dodge Polara?

    I don't care what anyone says, there's more to that story than just the fluid.... my two cents. Type "F" has less additives, not less lubrication.

    Trying to find what transmission is in my 1972 Dodge Polara?

    It is a 1972 vintage A-904 for a 318 engine, early standard duty unit. Your trans was the 35th unit built on November 26th, 1971 for the 1972 model year. I don't think you'll have any issue running a Dextron/Mercon trans fluid. Type "F" would be best, IMO.

    PS pressure line leak

    You will be revisiting that one. If possible compare to the old joint next time you have it apart. Did it leak there (the reason for replacement) or was there another problem with the old hose??

    65 monaco transmission gasket

    65's can even make the appearance of leaking thru the cables. If I were you, I'd steam clean or similar if possible, and then try to identify the main cause before tearing into it. Not everything you may need is easy to lay your hands on.

    Who to blame for 440 Throwing a Rod

    Honestly. I'm wondering if you were'nt driving it with a blown head gasket, diluting the oil with coolant into the bottom end. If that's the case, you and you alone would be responsible for stopping the engine before further damage. Sounds like you should pay your mechanic.... I cant see...

    original carb is missing - what should it have been? This may help to decipher...... I thought I had a better (easier to read) listing, but I'm still looking.... maybe Google carb for your exact application may help too.

    Will a head upgrade bring compression up on 73’ Imperial?

    I'll only jump in here to say two things... one, you can avoid the head gasket issue with a thin Cometec branded head gasket....and two, I'm seeing some good suggestions such as the `915 heads and a piston change, but the reality is that this will all dig into your pocketbook, like mopars just do.
