Your Restoration project (ROSEVILLE MOPARTS) / Re: My AAR project

Nice work.  Does anyone know if the stripe on the clutch spring on his pedal assembly is the same green color on a 69 B body. B bodys have a different spring, so I'm guessing it's a different color, anyone know what it would be.

Thanks for including me on this thread, but I've stayed at the same Motel 6, two miles from the fairgrounds for over 20 years now and have already made my 2019 reservations there, so I'm good :twothumbsup:

I know you guys will have a blast wherever your stay  :cheers:

Good question!  I just called Park Inn to check room and prices and they said they have over 100 rooms available.  And that was just rooms with 2 double beds.  They have King beds too if someone prefers, but she didn't tell me how many were available.

The cost is $143.65 per night if staying for 3 nights or $152.10 if staying for 2 nights (+tax).  The best rate is online on their website and we do not need a group rate or discount to get that price.  The price for a group of 10 was more than their website was offering at this time.  I suspect the price will go up as more rooms are sold.  :alan2cents:

I've stayed at the Park Inn for the past few years. It has an Irish Pub on the first floor, a huge multi-level decks out back with several bars, game & beer pong tables, etc... beach volley ball... this year there was a gathering with free food and they were giving free drink tickets on Friday night when I got there, the parking lot is gigantic, and there are people outside every night hanging outside all over the place.

I think my question is . . Are there rooms available for us at the Park Inn?  Sounds like a great place but I want to make sure we can all get a bed and it won’t kill our wallet!

Yes: Terrible situation. To me a house can be rebuilt or replaced but a lot of these cars can't. It must be an empty feeling losing absolutely everything, insured or not.

On Youtube if you type "Moparfest 2018" there's videos and still shots. Check out this link @4:06 @blown motor and you'll recognize a tail panel @4:47.

Take the old cam, using a die grinder with a cut-off wheel make a single cut across each bearing journal 90 degrees to the length of the cam, it's a good idea to keep them all in line and add a paint dub across a lobe to indicate that line ....  You now have a bearing sizing tool.... Insert it back in the engine with the grooves facing up & rotate it one full revolution...  Pull it back out & clean the shavings from the groove & repeat....  Usually 4-5 revolutions & the bearings are shaved enough on the high spots to cure the problem...

Oh, while it's nice that they think it's the rear bearing it's pretty obvious the guy suggesting that doesn't know what he's talking about..... Each bearing front to back is a different size so the bearings never get tight till the cam slides into all five bearings...
