    Progress, 1 step forward is 2 steps back.

    Progress, 1 step forward is 2 steps back.

    If you can get it off, brake cleaner will work. At some point the valve has moved inside and it thinks you have a leak to the back brakes which explains why there's no fluid to the rear wheels. Not sure why you don't have fluid to the right front.

    Introducing New Member: J Body Driver

    If there are owners in Southern Ontario that need a windshield, you could consider having it shipped to Detroit and pick it up yourself. There are plenty of shops located downtown that will accept a package for a nominal fee. The tunnel toll is about $13 and change round trip. So whatever...

    Introducing New Member: J Body Driver

    Who told you there were only 76 360 Miradas? "Production" information on the internet is 99% crap and 1% bullshit.

    FOR SALE F-Body Wagons!!

    Questions on the Sportwagon: Do you have all of the wheel flares and the front spoiler for the car? What's involved in getting a title or ownership documents for the car? How rusty is the car underneath?

    Weatherstripping woes

    All F/M four door cars will have (especially the front doors) the same weatherstrip. Ironically, wagon rear doors and sedan rear doors are just slightly different enough, that sedan parts may not fit. I purchased a new liftage weatherstrip for my wagon from the local body supply shop. They...

    any one stamping new metal for the aspen/volare'?

    Just about any later "M" body Fifth Avenue has a floor pan you can use. Certainly for sedans and wagons, and with some cutting skills, you could probably make the work for a coupe too.

    fender tag-78 dippy coupe

    Paint code is PB9 not P89. PB9 is starlight blue sunfire metallic Trim code F4B3 not F489. Split back bench seat with center armrest in blue. 000 is the interior trim paint code. Since your car doesn't have any visible painted trim inside the code is 000 616 is the body frame date. IT IS...

    Of course you're not going to find those codes in a '70/'71 book. You're dealing with an '88 Diplomat!

    Dash pad removal

    It really is "that" easy. Having done this a number of times, the best way I've found is to remove the pad and instrument panel top plate as an assembly and then separate the pad from the i/p panel. And, if you're intent on upgrading to a four speaker system in your car, now's the time to find...

    FOR SALE 88 Diplomat AHB Sway Bars

    Thanks for this. I had the basic theory of rear wheel steer explained to me decades ago by a friend who at the time was Chrysler's Chief Chassis and Suspension engineer. So, in the case of a rear sway bar on an F/M/J/Y body car, it's going to reduce the understeer considerably. Add in the...

    1979 E58 360-4V

    How were these engines "finished" at the engine plant? I've seen E58s in L'il Red Trucks with chrome rocker covers and a chrome air cleaner lid and I've seen what's supposed to be a "stock" E58 in a car that has black rocker covers and a black air cleaner lid. I'm redoing an E58 for a '79...

    Column ID help please...

    Because it's a Saginaw column, the parts you need would be common to any car i.e. Cadillac that has a tilt/telescope column. There must be somebody on this site who has the 1978 Pass Car Parts catalog or if all else fails, check a local dealer to see if they still have their catalogs or last...

    FOR SALE 88 Diplomat AHB Sway Bars

    Has anybody put a rear sway bar on a wagon? I'm REALLY curious to know. I'm fortunate enough to know a now retired Chrysler engineer who was part of the development team for Fbody, particularly suspension. I had talked to him years ago about putting the front bar in polyurethane and adding...

    Coolant Drain Plug on '78 Plymouth Volare

    If your engine is full of crusty stuff, or gunk in general, the most effective cleaner I've ever used is oxalic acid. Used to be able to buy a small two part container. Oxalic acid on one side, baking soda on the other. If you find oxalic acid, you need the baking soda otherwise the oxalic...

    The grille looks like the one used on the Medallion models. The emblem in the center isn't the same, but the basic grille appears to be the same.

    Torsion Bar Bushings

    OK, so given that the rubber bushings apparently are now made of unobtanium, what's everyone's experience with the poly bushings? I keep hearing people complain about squeaks although I've seen some that actually come with grease fittings. I'm pretty much OK with going to poly for the sway...
