  1. Looking for 34 dodge DR engine. Thanks
  2. Yes I am still looking for them
  3. I put one on my 34 Pe and could never keep it working. It would just lose spark and I even tried it when I ran the motor on a test stand. No idea and they couldn’t tell me why either
  4. For engine oil I run brad penn “green oil” 20w/50 in my motors. It has the higher zinc and seems to really stick to the engine parts. I’ve torn them apart after sitting for over a year and everything still had a coating of oil on it. Gear oil I use lubriplate
  5. I have heard people say one way or another and I tried both but to put the struts underneath made things fit better so I went with that way.
  6. 33 pickup, does the hood struts go between the radiator shell and radiator or do they go underneath the radiator tab. They have a countersink in them like they would go between.
  7. I had to use my big slide hammer to get mine out the first time. The race must have been rusted in pretty bad
  8. When I rebuilt my 34 rear I used a slide hammer to pull axles and inner bearing races and inner oil seals. I went to a bearing and seal store and picked up new modern seals and timkin bearings. My rear has the shims behind the inner race so I installed everything with no shims, used a dial indicator on magnetic base to figure out the end play. Local sheet metal shop lazered me out the correct shim for each side out of shim stock and I put back together. The butter grease seal I took apart the original sheet metal one and pressed in a new seal I got from bearing and seal store. The sheet metal housing I turned to side on a lathe for the proper press fit of the skf seal. I believe the 33 is basically the same except the 33 shims the brake backing plate for proper axle end play.
  9. I moved the driver's seat back in the sedan, that should work. Any ideas for a pickup?
  10. I need 19 and 23. I got the pedal and floorboards in. I have them adjusted what I believe is correct. The standard pedal adjustment is 1 1/8" at the top. Is that to where the throwout bearing bearing first contacts the fingers? The book says before resistance so that is how I took it. The issue I have is being 6'4" with long legs, I have a hard time getting my foot on the pedals. My knee gets stuck between the door and steering wheel. I need to get them lower if possible
  11. The thick rubber piece is what I'm guessing should be on the outside of the floor board? Also I need the clutch release fork lever lock (388055) and spring pull back bracket (600915). Any ideas where I could find those?
  12. Ok, I have it adjusted that way. At 6'4" I was hoping I could drop the pedal down to make it easier. I will install the floor board tomorrow and I assume if the pedal goes to the floor the clutch should be plenty released.
  13. Finally got my pedal assembly in the car and I have a new clutch and pressure plate assembly in the car. I have an idea on how to adjust the pedal but I noticed that no matter how high I adjust the pedal, I can push the pedal down until it hits something to stop. Seems surprising to me. Also the pedals have the heavy rubber bumper, does that go on the I side or outside of the firewall?
