Re: Casper

So I pulled the rear drums off the '01, as I am stripping the body, I replaced the drums shoes and hardware with all new Mopar parts a few years back, maybe 20,000 miles. The shoe friction pad basically fell out with the drum, just like above. I guess sitting for 4 years in a garage is beyond their ...

Re: Front lip?

I doubt it. The 2003 to 2005 front fascia is different enough along the bottom that it would take some modification to make an '00 to '02 lip fit. While I can't recall if there was anything added to that car, the ACR and R/T's had the lip molded in from the factory, so there is no removing it. You c...

Re: MyNeonSaysHi Mod Log: Stone White

They are hard, but not undrillable hard. A good drill bit will cut right into a bolt or stud. The toughest part is getting it to start close to the center. But angling the bit around until it gets fairly well centered usually gets it close enough. Being in the place it is, it may be easier said than...

And American's will buy them. Yup, since most Americans seem to really care only about price and not their country or their neighbors having a job.

Hmmm, that might just work. I would be afraid of melting aluminum being that close, but I guess if you use a welder often enough, and know the proper heat settings... If it was not bottomed out, it should come out pretty easy. Too bad you don't have a left hand drill bit handy, to see if it would ca...

Re: MyNeonSaysHi Mod Log: Stone White

There is not enough there to weld to. It can be drilled in the center and an easy out could be attempted. The only issue is due to the size, the easy out will have to be relatively small. The risk is if the easy out snaps, there is no drilling that. But a shop with a decent technician should be able...

It’s also hitting shares of Fiat Chrysler and Ford Motor since GM’s labor contract will serve as an outline for negotiations at its cross-town competitors. Fiat Chrysler’s stock also tumbled 10% during that time period, while Ford Motor declined 8%.

Thank you for including the link about the other parts- I had missed that.

It didn't have any info in it until last night. Somehow it got missed, or later info lost when the site rebooted.

I just lumped everything related into the response.

If the puddle was under the PS reservoir, or mainly on the passenger side, then I would suspect some missing the target. It could have run down the hose a bit before dripping off.

If you can get a die to clean up the threads well enough to get a nut on there, thread two nuts down as far as you can, and tighten them onto each other. Then using the inside nut, try to back the stud out. If it is still tight, apply heat. I have had studs still not budge on cast iron heads, and we...

Re: Rebuilding a Cylinder head

Pretty much need a shop press to assemble them. Press fit is the only thing that keeps the wrist pin in position with stock pistons/rods. Be sure to properly support the piston or you could damage it.

How did you get them apart?

You can try using some grease on the valve stem to hold the locks, and a pair of small needle nosed pliers to position them, but not sure what will help with the spring tension. This style locks in place, so you don't have to hold the spring tension while trying to get the locks in place. http://i.e...
