    1968 Chrysler New Yorker purchase

    Nice find. It looks like the owner took really good care of that one. Love the bucket seats and console! Mine came with the Holley 4160 and it has been an issue even after I rebuilt it once so that's probably why they changed yours over to a Carter.

    68 New Yorker 440 is out of tune

    Here's what I'm working with. It starts up with two pumps of the pedal and one or two turns. I rebuilt it last year so I wouldn't go to the extent of replacing it already. The fuel pump is only about 3 years old and the distributor, points and plugs are new.

    68 New Yorker 440 is out of tune

    Thanks for the tips. I have rebuilt the carb with a rebuild kit so there are no damaged parts on the carb that I can tell. I do agree with the O-ring issue. They leak there quite often. How do I know if a power valve gasket is not seated or is blown. Its only a year old at this point.

    68 New Yorker 440 is out of tune

    Thanks Cbody67, I have been in the garage working on keeping it running so I can check the idle and timing. I can't keep it running enough to test the vacuum pressure. I may have had one of the vacuum lines going to the wrong place as well but it turned out that it wasn't making any difference.

    68 New Yorker 440 is out of tune

    Thanks Dave. To clarify, I just recently rebuilt the carb with a kit so debris and corrosion are non existent. The float inside looked brand new and there are no leaks at the current time. I don't have much time after starting it to check the choke or other adjustments before it stalls out.

    68 New Yorker 440 is out of tune

    Recently, my Holley 4160 carb started leaking with some older gaskets so I rebuilt it with the blue gaskets, soaked it and had every part out on the table. I set the float per specific measurements and all that. So when I put it back on the 440 and set the idle screws (backed out 1 1/2 turns)...

    It´s time for the Slab picture thread

    I've been working on my 68 New Yorker all summer (and the past 7 years)rebuilding, tuning, cleaning and buffing. Here are a couple of recent pics.

    What are you working on today??

    When I found mine, the owner said the exact same thing. The heater core was leaking so they bypassed it by connecting the heater hoses together. I have yet to test that out. I poured water into the cowl as a test and found lots of water came straight on to the floor behind the dash. I sealed...

    What did you do to your C-body today....

    Thanks, yeah the story is the car was garage kept for many years and then was parked in a field for 6 years before I found it. The front of the carpeting was water soaked and ruined from a cowl leak. I tore that part out as soon as I got it home and sealed the leak. Been working on it...

    Worked on my 68 New Yorker the past few weeks. Over all clean up, interior work, carpet replacement, etc.

    What are you working on today??

    I've spent some time getting the interior ready for new sound insulation and carpeting on my 68 New Yorker. There was a leak coming in from the cowl that destroyed the original carpet and padding up front so I had tore that part out piece by piece when I first found the car. No more leaks.

    Abandoned for 40 years: 1968 New Yorker 2 DR

    Nice story and nice project. I bought my 68 New Yorker 2dr HT in 2013. It had similar issues but with a little work during some spare time, I was able to get the important things working. Still has issues I am working on now but its worth it. Clean it up all around and it will inspire you to...

    1968 Fury- new here

    Looking really nice. Did you rechrome the arm rest backing part? Yours look good but mine are losing the chrome. Also, did you go with the OEM braking system or make changes?

    1968 Fury- new here

    Nice looking '68! Did you use sound deadener and then glue the carpet down or just use the heat to mold it?

    440 Valve cover bolt needed

    Thanks! I have the car out and have been making some adjustments the past couple days. I had to not only fix the bowl vent but also start over with the idle air-fuel mixture screw positions. I still cannot get it to idle before it stalls out. I will check further into the specifics for the carb.
