    Super six still not right

    When you say Did they rebuild your existing carburetor? If so, I would talk with them to make it right. A bad float might be it, but sounds like incorrectly adjusted float and/or trash in the needle/seat. Either way, the fuel level is too high, it by adjustment or float can't shut off the...

    brakes catching and locking up when going downhill and throttle body replacement

    '88 Holley 6280 list# R40276. Chrysler p/n 4324647 Yes, the carb gaskets are leaking - but are not leaking that bad. I recommending taking a new-ish Phillips screwdriver (not a wore out one) and hand tighten those screws and I bet that leakage drops. When I worry about leakage is when I see...

    Exhaust pipe removal

    Sure enough there is a stud there. Sorry, I missed it.

    Best fuel pump/carb option

    How old is your fuel filter? I would get car into the air (safely) and follow the fuel lines from start to finish, to check for any kinks or other damage. There are three hidden fuel hoses under the passenger side firewall (under car). I wonder if one of those hoses has gone bad (ie: stopping...

    Exhaust pipe removal

    The only studs used is between exhaust manifold and cylinder head. This is from my '87 parts manual: The bolts are nothing special. One side nut has a built on bracket on it to keep it from spinning (much). The retainer is used to keep the bolt from spinning (much). Dorman made a Magnum...

    I think that system can be used either way (with or without a return). If the fuel tank vent (ie: charcoal canister) is not venting, it won't matter if his FI has a return line or not. You still end up sucking from a closed system until the fuel tank ends up in a vacuum (think of drinking from...

    I agree. Remove your gas cap and take the car out for a drive and see if you have any change.

    Exhaust pipe removal

    I have removed two Y-pipes in the last decade. One was an Y-pipe from a '80 Aspen wagon (with single rear cat). Those manifold to pipe fasteners were rusty and stripped without much effort. I finally had to break out the Sawzall and still did some damage: No, this cat free Y-pipe is not for...

    Best fuel pump/carb option

    I'm thinking the same as mentioned as above - but if you are already at wits end, then I won't say anything more to add to that. Using the Edelbrock Performer or Performer RPM? Performer 2176 (or 3776 of with EGR) Performer RPM 7176 The RPM version sometimes is too tall for a carburetor to...

    WANTED Fifth Avenue Drivers Wiper Arm Needed ASAP

    Your pivot looks good. Before you install a wiper arm, you might smear a smidge (not a lot) of grease (or something, it doesn't have to be grease) on the splines to hamper rust. Short term, you can rob the passenger side arm for the drivers side. It is not a "good" fix, but at least something...

    Exhaust pipe removal

    The exhaust manifold to exhaust pipe (or Y-pipe) uses grade 5 bolts and they were not meant to be reused. Not Grade 8 or ARP fasteners. Not the gradeless Chinese crap either. Too much heat and rust will get to those fasteners.

    If he (or someone) paid for FI, I would too. I suspect there might be something underlying causing his problems (like timing chain jumped time or blown head gasket, IDK).

    Best fuel pump/carb option

    Was the 4-bbl intake already on engine before the change over? What was you using before fuel injection? Where about do you reside at? Mind if I ask what kind of issues you were having with the FI? The reason I ask is I want to make sure you are not chasing the wrong problem (and I'm not saying...

    Canister hose

    If you have a Carter BBD or Holley 2280/6280 it will go here (red or white arrows): Non-computer controlled. Computer controlled. If you have a 1-bbl, it will still be noticeable, but might look different. The Red arrow sucks the fuel vapors from charcoal canister under certain conditions...

    Transmission cooler question

    Most of the work of the transmission cooler is to warm the ATF - more than it actually cools the ATF. 160-180 degrees F is where automatic transmissions like to run at. It doesn't like to be any cooler and not any hotter. Most people don't see it but many transmission shift points are off when...

    WANTED Fifth Avenue Drivers Wiper Arm Needed ASAP

    I may have one. Drivers side? Any sign of damage to the splines (for pivot)?

    Random Pics

    I was thinking that myself. No way to keep those headlights pointed forward (just up) I wonder what kind of a transaxle was used with that setup? Also, why a wing behind the axle? It needs to be in the front pushing the front down . . . BudW

    You might want to wait to see if he is looking for a black painted steel or bare aluminum cover, first.

    Exhaust pipe removal

    The Y-pipe without the front cats attached, is also "fun" to remove. The cats just make it more of a challenge. Don't reuse the fasteners. That said, sense they won't be reused, feel free to remove while providing the least amount of damage elsewhere... I might be wrong, but I remember...

    WANTED Front fender inner panel

    The older ones use black painted steel. the newer ones are bare aluminum. Both will interchange (Left to Right, or steel and aluminum) but it looks odd to have one of each type on the car. After looking up the part number(s), it appears they went back and forth with aluminum and steel...

    AMC used a lot of "everything" mixed into one car. Some Ford, some GM and some Chrysler and sprinkles of "other" just for good measure.

    BudW water pump pulleys

    For long term use or for driving hard (like I like to do), I would HIGHLY recommend the newer pump with larger bearings. That said, one can't discount the blade count differences. After '82ish (not sure of the cutoff), all of the non-A/C cars used the same pulleys and brackets - but have an...

    BudW water pump pulleys

    It is actually marked under the red arrow on post #7, which is actually from @volare 1977 . I hadn't posted much yet. I just used (and modified) his picture to show the pulley on my car.

    BudW water pump pulleys

    I do have a lot of books but a long way from everything Mopar known to man (or FMJ's, for that matter). I don't know why the non-A/C 318's (or for that matter, the older big blocks with no-A/C) have a different pulley size and blade count pumps - but I suspect it might have something to do with...
