Hi there '53
To anyone bothering to follow my thread. Looks like I have reached a deal for a family driver! Just gotta get to H&R block now...
Hay BIG O I have been following your thread and wanted to say hello from down Wilmington O. way I hope you stay with your 6 cyl There is nothing that sounds better than a flathead 6 with a set of fenton headers Sounds like a nice ride keep it up Kenny G.
Kenny G, yea I am keeping the 6. I am starting to buy up go fast goodies for it. The Offy intake just showed up. I am now scratching my head as to what to do about the bottom of it. The Offy is set up for a stock exh. manifold. I am planning on running headers but running into an issue. I can either plate off the area it bolts to the exh on the bottom or find a split exh manifold that will accept the offy.
And thanks for the welcome
Here is a link to a youtube of my old 218 with the Offy intake and Fenton repop cast iron header running through 2 1/4 inch pipes with short 14 inch no name turbo mufflers and a cross over about even with the middle of the transmission.
And here is Moose's in his Model A sedan with open headers.
Way cool! I love the tractor exhaust note. I was planning on going with a pair of those tiny 12in glass packs and running it over into a set of full length lakes.
I don't remember if you said you were running one of Earl's cam's or not.
Does anyone know of a good rebuild or shop manual for the 230 or the 218 flatty?
Never mind, found the manual. Semi productive night in the garage. atleast while the heat lasted. Got two steelies sanded down and painted, engine mount sanded and painted, and oil filter canister pulled. hopefully going to make more time next weekend.
Finally Uncle Sam came through! The '64 New Yorker came home yesterday. Spent most of last night cruisin. Hell Yea. Nothin better than the sound of a big block rollin down the highway purrrrring away.
Just got a bunch of new pic's posted of the new toy.
3340, I love your '31! Glad to see you didn't slam it to the ground. Toledo's got alot of pot holes...
Welcome from your south eastern border!
I appreciate it 2loud
WELCOME FELLOW BUCKEYE!!,, LOTS OF GOOD INFO HERE AND GREAT CAR FOLKS !!!
Welcome from another Ohioan, I have the cousin to your 56, mine's a Dodge.
Welcome from Susan & Larry inthe Mo zarks
Cool man. I am trying to decide if I feel like braving the cold in an almost-not so much-heated garage tonight after kids zonk out. If that's it in the pic, looks slick from what I can see. Much better than my Plymouth. I drive truck and only have the weekends to wrench after all other needed chores are done so its slow going.
Hello Susan and Larry. Ozarks are beautiful. I have been down through there.
Well I got out and set the dwell, pint gap, timing and idle today. The new one is running awsome!
OUCH just dropped another $900 on the '64! Thats how it works... Well worth it though. A better waste of money has yet to be found.
Welcome from Columbus Grove, Ohio. I parted out a '64 New Yorker and a '64 Newport. Still have some trim left if you need any. Real cheap or free to get it out of my way. Would love for someone to be able to use it.
I would love to take a look at what you have
Welcome from central Ohio
Welcome from CT!
Just installed a pertronix set up. With the ohms on the coil they are recommending I bypass or remove the ballast resistor. Has anyone done this on an early 60's mopar and how did it work out?
