What did you do with your ebody/Mopar today?
« on: March 21, 2017, 03:19:50 PM »
Today was a really nice day so I pulled my rear end out and took it to a buddy's shop to swap out the 3:55 for 4:10. I found the RPM's too low at hwy speeds with my OD 

Summer is coming!  :D :burnout:

 :popcorn:  Going to be fun seeing what everyone is doing!

I'm on engine duty for the next few weeks.  Have 3 engines to finish up and paint soon.  Just got a 4 speed trans back from Brewers too.  Really want to get that Purple T/A on the road for this summer.

Yes the 4L60 OD,  75-80 MPH was around 2300-2500, at 65mph it was 2000 rpms too low for my engine combo. The 4L60 has a 3.06 first gear so this should wake it up some....

Did some touch up painting on the engine and painted the thermostat housing. It was cast, picked it up used last summer to replace my leaky chrome one. Also cleaned my windows. My gauge cluster is supposed to be done today. Should have it back by this time next week.  :banana:  :banana:

I worked on removing scratches and polishing my rear glass. Finally figured out how to do it and will post results on another thread.

After spending 4-5 hours sanding/painting on son Jim's GD Horizon and as it was a lovely, sunny day; I moved all the Horizon parts and all the vehicles in the drive and pulled my poor old Challenger out! Drove it over to Kitchener (at 4pm- dumb idea) and filled it with some 97 cents per litre fuel. Got it hot enough to finally blow the schmutz out of the exhaust and put a smaile on my face into the bargain. Back into it's hidey hole for a while.  :)
In the immortal words of Jimmy Scott- "pace yourself!"

That's the rare BS1 option that combined exhaust hanger and static discharge function! Sometimes they came in pairs and the really rare ones were galvanized.  :yes:

these last couple weekends in Colorado were spectacular in the 70s, died/painted all of my interior plastic trim blue and working on trunk repairs hillbilly style. this weekend looks like it won't be so nice, so we'll see

Well, actually was Monday when I let my friend Dave drive my `Cuda 440-6 for refueling to have it ready to go for the car show this coming weekend....

I will post a much longer video in a separate thread later today,  but for now here is Dave's return from refueling the `Cuda...
