  1. Has anyone an opinion on Egge pistons for an Dodge slow 4? A good choice or any problems?
  2. Thanks for the reply. My cylinders have been roughed out to +80 thou (2mm) to remove the pin gouge. I can get JP pistons at .80 oversize. It has been running with 40 thou oversize pistons for 30 years. Going .80 is only half a mm per side over what I have been using. Who can supply sleeves in Aus just in case.
  3. Does anyone know the thickness of the cylinder walls in an early Dodge 4?
  4. I’ve always wanted to ride in a rumble seat. Let me know when you drive it to Newcastle.
  5. What’s a muffler the same as that cost? I’m thinking the 2” all the way would be better for performance as well.
  6. That looks pretty good.How do we do this?
  7. I like this. Is this close to available colours?
  8. Ok thanks. It will be a couple of weeks till I get back so that gives me plenty of time to worry.
  9. I was going off this and a couple of other similar posts.
  10. I have my ‘23 engine out getting rebored and want to paint it while it’s out. I’ve seen a couple of posts where a bloke said they were originally light grey and fade to green after a few years of heat cycling. Would I be better going for grey using modern paint which probably wouldn’t fade off or just go straight to the weird green colour.
  11. Using springs? Mine has high density foam. Easy to make a bit thicker seat base for those vertically challenged and hasn’t sagged since done in ‘91.
  12. I was shaking like a leaf when I first drove mine after 18 years of restoration
  13. Like looking under a brand new car. Great job👌
  14. Yes it was. I will be pulling off the sump shortly and popping the pistons for a look at the rings. The problem is it wasn’t the cylinder with no compression that has the gouging. I will look into resleeving or finding a donor block. It was last reconditioned in 1991 so about time again I suppose.
