  1. After changing oil (car on jack stands) I noticed when I turned the steering wheel to the far right there was a small amount of lash. So I turn it to the left stop and found even more lash. I put my magnetic protractor on the steering wheel and rechecked the lash 10deg right and 30deg left. Is this something that should be looked into? There does not appear to be any Lash in the center.

    Car is a Dodge d5 biz coupe.

    Thanks in advance for your reply

      Some last at ends of turns is normal. Center position with the slightest lash is good.

  6. I love the look of the red motor.  I notice the absence of a radiator fan.  I assume you have a pusher electric fan in front of the radiator?

  8. I need to replace my D5 crank out windshield seal. I have removed it from the car but am unable to remove the framework to replace the seal. Shop manual not much help and I have also checked the search site. Is there a secret to getting the frame loose without breaking the glass? I have called several automotive glass installers in the area and they say it is too old and do not to take on the responsibility. Any suggestions?
  9. I need to replace the water pump backing plate gasket and was wondering if someone could tell me what thickness of gasket material to use. I have contacted Fel-Pro and the only way you can get said gasket is purchase an overhaul kit. Will a thicker gasket alter the performance or flow of the w/p or is that not a factor?
