  1. 3 door hinge pins out / 1 being stubborn / heat ???

    I have no experience on these old Mopar hinges but I have restored numerous Muscle car era door hinges using bronze bushing to bring the hinges back to life and they have held up very well. I also believe there is quite a bit of weight in the modern car door once they started adding the crash beam inside the doors along with all the power operated features. You would be surprised on how heavy these later era door are compared to these old Mopars. Have you ever removed a door from a 1974 Grand Prix, if you have you know what I’m talking about. It’s a 2 man job, compared to my 49 Wayfarer Convertible door that I can install by myself.
  2. 3 door hinge pins out / 1 being stubborn / heat ???

    If you find the hole for the hinge pin is worn excessively you can install a bronze bushing and use a new pin.

  5. Notches in Pan Gasket?

    No trimming is required or advised, when the pan is tightened everything slides into place creating a leak free seal. The end pieces float are left long to allow them to slide and fit tightly into the radius of the oil pan as it tightened down. If the end pieces are cut they won’t wedge themselves and seal properly and most likely leak oil.

  9. Notches in Pan Gasket?

    If you look at the pan rail gasket on the top in your picture you’ll see an offset. That gasket only fits one way to line up with bolt holes. Whaerever your notch ends up install the other gasket in the same direction

    Transmission needs to come out first, leave the bell housing attached to engine then remove as one.

  15. Parts for disc brake conversion

    I don’t think by lowering the stance of the vehicle that you going to change the elevation relationship between the master cylinder and calipers unless, you stand the car on end of coarse. Disc brake pads will slightly rub the rotor at all time and some cheaper pads are noisier than others.
