    68 Fury 318 - what is this?

    No adjusting of the new pump. There is a push rod that is driven off of the cam that drives the pump. It will more that likely drop down when the pump is removed. Watch a couple of you tube videos if your not sure on how to change it. OH NO Jay Leno! I’ve seen it happen!

    Busted 3/8 bolt from trans bellhousing to engine. Fix or forget it?

    The alignment dowels are a must exact tolerance than the bolt holes. Put the five bolts, if you twist off the dowels or break the bell housing you have bigger problems. The broken bolt is either bottomed out or cross threaded.

    1966 New Yorker Fuel tank?

    There is something wrong with the fit of the filler neck and the tank. The bump in the filler neck should be flush up against the bevel in the grommet. Is the tank fitting up against the trunk floor?

    1966 New Yorker Fuel tank?

    The bump should be on the out side of the grommet. Did you check the tank for any debris from the old grommet before installing the new one? Is the filler neck strap screwed back in place in the trunk?

    .020 steel head gasket question...440

    I did find this note in a 1972 Motors manual. The FSM says to use MoPar #1057794 or equivalent. So maybe Indian Head Shellac. Permatex sells a spray on copper sealer.

    .020 steel head gasket question...440

    This is want I have. With TOP facing up embossing of the gasket is down. If you look between the 2 lower bolt holes you will see a Pentastar, that is the part number stamped on the other side. Part # up embossing up. Still could be a toss up.

    Suggestions for distributor, 383 fuel injected

    For a daily driver no need for the MSD. If the distributor is original to your car good chance the bushing are worn and unstable timing. You can get a new unit from Rockauto, 1974 400 engine or halifaxhops could put one together for you from a core. For the ignition module I like the FBO kit...

    No Oil Pressure In My 300

    Not sure but in 70 did the camshaft gear have nylon coated gear? If this is the case your pickup screen could be clogged. Your pump is fine. Pull the water pump housing and the front cover. Just a thought!
