Hello,
I'm new to the forum and Mopars in general. I recently had the good fortune of snagging a behemoth. A 1975 Chrysler T&C, 9 passenger wagon from a friend. His father-in-law originally bought it used in 1979, from Cleveland Ohio. Drove it to Texas where it spent most of its life. In late 2001, 02, the car lost oil pressure. His attempt to diagnose it was a simple oil change. It then sat that way until 2010, when my friend hauled it to Columbus Ohio where it spent the next 5 years sitting in storage waiting it's turn (friend had way too many projects). I finally talked him in to selling it to me in September of 2015. Turns out it had a bent pushrod. So I've been slowly cleaning up the gas tank sludge, replacing fluids and tuning it up, new tires, etc....

Thanks T & C Man.... It's almost ready to hit the pavement. I had it on a short trip (< 5 miles) and discovered the MC was leaking into the booster. So once that's replaced, it'll be cruise time... I've been through all the other systems (including the majority of the brakes).
