  1. what James said...frozen valves can also contribute. FEF's engine was "frozen" (would only turn a little), having 4 valves stuck wouldn't let it turn over. pull starting or forcing can sometimes damamge things worse than just checking things over and being patient. My nephew wanted to pull start FEF, would have meant things broken in the engine if we had tried.
  2. And when these are in proper condition they work very well. If broken or damaged (like any other door check) things can go bad.
  3. oddly I see no reason why the standard door checks would let the door get dinged if they and their mounts are in proper condition.
  4. I bought what I could find and put them in. It's a tension setting so it's not that big of a deal.
  5. welcome! Soon the chebby will be a distant memory as you fall in love with MoPaR!
  6. MM said they'd do stainless in their press....just saying might be worth the call.
  7. chrome bed strips...from Horkey? I wish people would understand his are Chebby/Ferd strips and not Dodge.
