  1. ok good to know about the keys. Where do I get new ones? I’d need to buy the locks and ignition too? The motor can be turned by hand using the fan and my assistant did the oil in the plugs February of last year. Plugs are back in but it’s only had a car port and a tarp for cover. Maybe I should give them another round?
  2. Nice! That’s what I’m talking about! I have a gravity tank I made for the bikes. I didn’t even think about using it for this. This is probably a stupid question but What about oil? Should I remove and inspect the pan or just fill er up? I plan on using a remote starter button that hooks straight to the starter but out of all these boxes of parts I’ve found zero keys. Do I need separate keys for the ignition and doors?
  3. It’s been a while since I been on here but I haven’t lost interest! Little over a year ago (I think) I posted about the chieftain and truck load of parts I scored for cheap. I finally got my garage built and the car out of the car port into indoor storage. Now what?? I’ve never worked on a car this old before but am up for the task. I have a shop manual and a parts catalog. My plan is to just get the thing road worthy. Making it pretty will come later. I have a couple questions. I have a 6v. Battery I want to keep that system. I would like to get all new wires. Everywhere. But I really would like to see this engine running. Maybe enough to move it back and forth under its own power. I took the carb apart when I first got the car and i think it’s ready to go. So should I just clean all my contacts, hook everything up and cross my fingers? Also, just to make room in the garage I’d like to get both front and back seats and maybe the door panels installed. Thoughts? Feelings? Insults? Any input would be much appreciated!
  4. You took the words right out of my mouth. The first shop I worked at had one of these as a project to do when the business was slow. It was a sedan, white with a blue top. I loved it just because it was old. (To me.) and jumped at the chance to work on it, drive it, park it, pump the brake pedal, whatever. I was bummed when they finally sold it. In hindsight I now feel sorry for the sucker who bought that heap. Just looking at it hurts my head
  5. What a great thread. I’ve never found anything cool but What about things you lost?! I once lost three vials of cocain in a corvette . 😂
  6. I guess I need a new spring? I’m not certain but I feel like mine is pretty loose. A lot of good info I’m gonna have to re read when I finally get my garage set up. Waiting on warm weather so I can epoxy the floor and then I’ll start moving in
  7. This is awesome!! I have two motors and I’m debating on whether or not to pull the one already installed and clean it up. Or just get it going and make the other one pretty. Either way I gotta know how you made the thing run like that outside the car. And I need specifics. The fog of ignorance is thick on my end
  8. You better get it before I or summershandy😉I been watching this thread like a hawk as I’m likely to be embarking on the same task sooner or later
  9. Over cleaner works good on baked in grime
  10. At the old shop we got a 67 corvette convertible from this guy. We had to move a bunch of junk and pry it out of his basement. According to him all it needed to start was gas. (Yeah right) we started tearing the motor down. I pulled the intake off and got the same “rain stick” sound. Turned out to be a secret stash of dog food. Dang mice!!!
  11. I didn’t know that about the 4.1. Beautiful car. It would be nice to see some pictures of said worthless motor
  12. as long as people are interested in cars, motorcycles and the like, they will always be around. There are people who waste thousands and thousands of dollars on that old obsolete horse. Why? I don’t know, but it’s not because it’s practical. Stop bringing me down man. Isn’t time to change your oil?!
  13. Right. It. It could be too long. You could dig up some specs and take the ones you have to a place that makes these types of lines. We used to do the same thing with old a/c lines that busted. Cheaper than buying a new one from a parts dealer
  14. The lift fella and I took measurements and anything besides the middle is too tight against the wall. I really wanted it to one side to park a car next to it but 24 feet just isn’t enough. Overall width of a challenger LE10 is 131.75 roughly 11ft? Plus as frank said, another 3 ft at least from the wall.
  15. I wanted to have it back and to one side like you said but the lift guy came and looked at the garage and felt like the middle would be best. Guess I’ll put shelves and tools on either side? I’m gonna call him tomorrow and put in an order probably
