    Underhood heat

    Little late here. But are you running vacuum advance? if so check that it is not leaking. If your not running vacuum advance you really should be on a street car, it will help with the fuel consumption on high way runs.

    Help with wood grain replacement 73 T&C

    I used MacTac wood grain on one of my wagons in the past, booked the rolls so the grain lined up in a continuous run. It looked great and as far as I know still going strong 15 years later. So cheap. It was my first time so I figured it was good practice. Turned out great. You can get all types...

    Orange plug wires.

    I did some looking last night, then remembered the Master tech series from Chrysler. In this video the tech clearly asks about the new for 72 orange plug wires. The question is at the 17:30 point of video. Also interesting was the colour coded ECU, thats a new one.

    Kevin Hart......Mopar Guy

    Looks great, one of the better big wheel jobs. I usually don't like the builds like what Kendig did to the 67 Coronet RT. But this looks really nice. Good for Kevin, hope he doesn't go broke buying all these wild cars.

    They look great on your car. I will have to some investigation into the Lincoln 5x5 wheels and the Chrysler centre cap attachment. I think those wheels might look pretty good on my 73

    Getting an Imperial Home

    Yes I bought The Black W White interior(Tux) and Brownie. Brownie cleaned up pretty nice, it has gone to a gentleman that wants to do a full restoration.

    Has anyone restored the red center cap to a Chrysler Cordoba aluminum wheel?

    After you get the paint off, lens polished. you would get the red in a semi transparent, then spray the red with a chrome paint. get the depth and shine. Wet sanding increasing to a polish for paint removal should work.

    Orange plug wires.

    I did some looking around after posting, I found some examples of very low mile Imperials and Chryslers. Looks like,the electronic ignition cars were orange, points were black. That may reason that Lectric says that the points wires won't fit, or not for electronic ignition. Lectric looks to...

    1973 Imperial Sentinel wiring under dash extension/jumper/ pig tail

    Yes that was my plan to use that connector. I knew it was used on the AC system, but did not know where. Thank you for that info. From what I have found on information it was used for a couple of decades on AC. Is that the dash controls?
