I would love to be there working on it with you at this fun stage - full size model kit that turns out an awesome ride!
No bellybutton - put a 318 or 360 with a 518 - easy to find with the rear sump pan you will need in many pickups in the wreckers and as cheap as a...
I guess hell froze over huh?
final machine work and then they are casting these up for sale.
awesome, this is one of the threads I watch on here, hate to have to look elsewhere. Glad you are sticking around, we need to see it finished!:D

Anybody who says there are no stupid questions has never worked on a service desk. :eek:

sweet truck, great motor and transmission, all Mopar, all good.
The only thing I would do is add to the rear of the sump to make up for lost...

While you're there, you may as well light that gas soaked balancer, just cause.
I think Don has it right, his combo definitely works - very consistent 11's in a heavy Charger back up his claims.

A coil spring is just a coiled up torsion bar - it is not...
this guy will do it . . .
I think I may try some dryer sheets . . .
So I should try cotton underwear instead?
why is my sack itchy?
2 wants it out of the garage and doesn't want any money spent on it, but likes me to have a hobby :confused:
The numbers on the jets don't sound right to me . . .
