    Repairable? Dent in wheel …

    Picked up this set of four 15 x 7“ wheels from a 80s Fifth Avenue. Just noticed there’s a bit of a dent in one of the rims. Can it be repaired?

    "Fifth Avenue" wheels, 15" - will they fit?

    Thanks everyone. I thought I saw on one of the "wheel identifier" sites that some Fifth Avenues came with 5 x 4" bolt patterns, so I was confused. From what I'm reading here, they are all 5 x 4.5", with the 3 nubs for dog dishes, and are 15" x 7". Hoping to pick them up by Monday.

    "Fifth Avenue" wheels, 15" - will they fit?

    Will 15" wheels off of a mid 80s Fifth Avenue fit a C Body. Supposedly they are 15" with a 5 x 4.5" bolt pattern. I don't know if it's an M-body or an R-body, and the salvage yard is confirming they are 5 x 114.3mm and not 5 x 100mm. Also hoping they have the 3 "nubs" for dog dish hub caps...

    Looks like Chevy Engine Orange in that photo, to me . . . could just be the lighting of course.

    brake drum color

    Hi Aside from those few models that had parts of the brake drum painted red where it could be seen through the wheel slots, did Chrysler Corp. ever paint brake drums or were they just left to rust? Just curious, thanks.

    Caliper beyond repair?

    That looks like a lot of pitting … doubtful.

    Hissing noise from brake pedal

    That was what I was thinking. I am considering getting a kit and doing it myself. I have the Bendix booster, not the Kelsey Hayes.

    Hissing noise from brake pedal

    So on my 66 Newport, I recently have a slight hiss coming from the brake pedal inside the car. It goes away when I apply the brakes. There is no rough idle or anything associated with a vacuum leak to the engine. I’ve had a brake booster fail before, but the symptoms it displayed were a loud...

    Slight brake pull after everything replaced new

    It was the PO who put all the new parts on. I doubt any cutting or arc matching was done. I’m not sure how many miles he put on the car in the 3 years he owned it, but I’ve put probably 1200 gentle miles on it since getting it in January. I’m gonna take it all apart and put it together again...

    The levers on mine are above the star wheel, not below it.

    Brake spring noise when applying brakes

    It's a poorly lit photo taken at a poor angle, so it might look bad but actually be fine. I will pull everything apart and make sure it's done right. Thanks.
