  3. not a problem there rusty, but I did go back out to the road where the problem. drove backward 40/50 mph smell still there not the tail wind , while driving backwards looked in rear view mirror no car so car in front nope, imagination well lets not go there, smell coming from me mmm lets just say I wear them charcoal skives . but I looked into everyones ideas , sometimes the simplest things are right in front of your face and don't even see them!!!! thanks to everyone
  4. yep hadit off in 20 minuets just wating for valley pan parst store ha gaskets but no pan should be here tommorw
  5. I found the problem brought the car in the shop today crawled into the trunk put up on lift turned on 12million candel power lamp no holes. so I started up front looking for a oil leak, and since the 383 has an open manifold, usedthe bore-a-scope looked under manifold low and behold there is a small hole in the valley pan. Removed manifold found that it had rusted thru right in the center so under low vac it was splashing a small amount of oil on to the under side of intake right where the exhaust crossover is burning off the oil. It must have not had enough to leak out as to where I could see it and it would drain back down into engine.. As far as I can tell its never been apart has pentastar embossed on the pan. thanks for all the tips going to replace tomorrow and recheck
  6. It did this with the factory signal exhaust the pipes come out where factory would, It does have new seal on trunk. Being that I work in a dealer ship we have a smoke machine for looking for leake in emission syatems with adaptors for looking for water leaks which I used but could find nothing. I may crawl into trunk close lid and look for light coming thru. I don't crawl into trunk without a screw driver or pliers so I cn get back out when they wont open trunk!!
  7. I am trying to figure out why I am getting exhaust fumes inside my car. 1965 Chrysler 300 383 cid , driving around town no problem , but out on the road above 45 mph exhaust fumes get into the car. Now here is the kicker first speed above 40/45 drivers window down no fumes but open the vent window can fumes the same with the passenger side windows, open all 4 no problem no fumes. If I use the ac no problem. It done this with theold exhaust with was bad, so last fall replaced it all from manifolds back, replace single exhaust with dual set up . I bent and installed this myself checked today no leaks found. The tail pipes are appx 2/3 inchs passed the bumper with turn downs. There are no holes in the body new weather strip on trunk. I also smoked tested the exhaust no leaks along with smoke tested the interior with no signs of leaks. I don't know where else to look is this a case of air pressure??

It would go over 110mph,but being a youngster I had replaced the 170 cid with a 351 Cleveland with a4speed, but forgot one thing....rear end. out one night we reved her up dumped the clutch, well never seen a mate pin cut a case in half before. boy I miss that car!!!
  11. found this picture while reading about Dubois PA history"Posted 16 April 2010 - 09:21 AM "Buffalo Bill in Du Bois" M.I.McCreight's 1908 Rambler, showing Buffalo Bill, Chief Iron Tail, Driver Don McCreight, Monroe McCanles standing, and young boy Jack or Jim McCreight. Monroe McCanles was explaining to Buffalo Bill how Wild Bill Hickok (Duck Bill) had murdered his father Dave McCanles in 1861. This photo was taken in the afternoon of June 22, 1908, in front of the McCreight Home, 42 East Long Avenue in Du Bois, PA, shortly after McCreight had been adopted into the Sioux Tribe.

  16. 1996 -2000 caravan-Plymouth voyager vans life time warenty on clock spings for the air bag due to a recall still do one about once a month, have done somevans 2or 3 times
  17. not picking on you Matt but an o2 sensor failure is usually the result of something wrong. Everyone always blames the O2 sensor,like yesterday had a customer came in the shop complaining that he has put 2or three sensors in and has not fixed his problem, I put the scanner on all sensors working good, but I read the freeze frame data and found that I had a bad map sensor replaced the sensor car worked perfect. Without hearing or driving this car and at the rpm and speed it is happing at I would say look at the lock up toque converter. They usually come into play at that mph and rpm, sounds as if going in and out of lockup. Early lockup converters were either locked or not new converters now are pulsed into either full lock up or part lock up, that's why we have a lot of problems with toque converter shutter. If you have a truck that you tow with there is a button for tow/haul it will either turn off lock up and or modify the trans shift schedule and lock up. The wonderful world of computer controlled transmissions.
  18. 64-65 rambler classic there is no v8 on the front fender so not an ambassador. I cant remember the model numbers I think they went from 220 base model to 660 ambassador this looks to be middle of the raod model with the chrome strip on the side.
  19. A friend of mine only has right leg, and he drove a 1950 ford with no hand controls, the car has no power steering no auto trans. Drove this car long distance with no problems Sad to say thou he passed away last spring , but his wife still brings the car to cruises and shows.
