  1. Do you have a DMM (digital multimeter or an analog) or a test light? If not, go out and buy one (cheap as chips), its a great diagnostic tool.
  2. Thanks Andy for the lead. Which ever way I go it will still cost some $$$$....
  3. Yeah mate it is a lot. You should have seen my face when I did the grade 4 math. The problem is finding some on who can do it and has done it to an early Chrysler engine bearings. I have sent out a few messages to various vintage car clubs but no responses so far. Its a very slow process unfortunately. The bearings will take another 3 months or so and then I probably wont have an opportunity to do the engine swap until later this year. But yes, I will update this thread. The later 265 engine does not mount at the front like the early 65 or the 75 engines. If the 75 engine is all done then that would be a very good swap into your 65 series.
  4. Yes, I mentioned this to the machinist and his concern was finding ones that will work. The two end main caps are very wide. Has any one done this to an early Chrysler engine before?
  5. After 6 month at the machinist we have some progress.... Cleaned up well, bored 0.060" over. Next is the bearings, all 13 of them, mains and rods, at $180 per bearing, there goes my budget rebuild....:( So off to a bloke 3 hours away to pour all the bearings.
  6. Who Is Actually Driving Their Vintage Mopars?

    We haven't won a drag race at Willowbank Raceway as yet, but with a pertronix module in the delco remy and fresh Firestones in the rear, we now have our max. MPH up to 39mph....:)

    It looks very 'loved' considering how long you have had it for, and how much you have driven it. Its a credit to you Andy.

    You seem to have a screw loose/missing...:)

    It would be wise for Scott to do a list and the cost of all the required parts need to do the swap.

    It adds up very fast, even when one does all of the labor.

    Will the steering work? Pedal assembly? Hand/emergency brake? And how long will it take?

    So $500 for the 318/904, how much do you have for the rest of the conversion? $2000, $4000?

    The only relevance the recent above comments have to the topic is that you blokes are anticipating that this will be the domestic situation of the OP when he commence his engine swap...:)

    How much are you budgeting for this swap?
