  1. How y'all doing gentleman. Back again in search of knowledge. Hopefully someone out there has the same set up or can just skool me up... on my 51 coronet I transplanted a mild 318 married to a 518OD, with posi 3.73s. Intake manifold is a holley street dominator with a holley DP 650cfm... 1st question, what should timing be at on the block ? (currently at 10°btc) 2nd: Carb tuning? Set at 850rpm at 10inches of vacuum.. 3: any recommendations for this type of set up... as far as timing degrees, and carb tuning
  2. Here's another grille that i found surfing the webs.
  3. ☝🏽 thats bitchin... thanks for the idea boss, much appreciated...
  4. Before I get "baptized" with all sorts of bad comments.. i did check the hamb, and im into the custom car scene, nothin wrong with stock but its not me..... just looking to see if theres anyone HERE that has done a full chopped custom mopar??? Frenched light? Chopped rooftop, air bagged, custom grilles, etc etc....Pictures greatly appreciated... thanks in advance for the pictures..
  5. Are there any kustom grilles out there for the wide OG grilles on 51 coronets? Attempted the search bar.. but no luck... pictures wouldnbe great. Links to the building up process.... thanks in advance.
  6. I swapped my rear end with a dana 35c on my 51.. had it rebuilt to 355 posi.. just had to relocate the leaf spring perch's over 1/2" ..
  7. Yes, i went back to the "tech tips" and starting reading, i found one of your responses, stating ☝🏽 just that... using the access hole by #6. Im waiting for summit delivery on a degree wheel(hope you approve of it) their tech support said it would work....
  8. Make sure all orifices are plugged up before starting it, ....save your self a complete clutch flywheel teardown. And a huge oil spill.
  9. Hey boss, so my dampener is NOT a one piece with a pulley/shieve attached to it. It actually has 2 pieces. The dampener is one and the belt pulley is the other... pulley is in between block and dampener... is that how some D42 body style came? Will that cause any harm?
  10. So i finally got a new dissy... you see the shaft gap from the one that was giving me problems to the new one, with no gap/play...( give me a few while i figure out how to bypass the 3mb picture sizing )
  11. Thanks for the knowledge though i appreciate it, but it bugs me to not understand how it works..
  12. How does it relate to the timing? How it throwing it off? How is it linked to the distributor? I want to understand how it works
  13. Holy ****!!! Its vibrating !! How does that effect the timing exactly?!?! Im in loss of thoughts/words.... WHY? Or how???... i dont know or have a clue about how its related..
  14. Everything is new.. just finished assembling the motor.. carbs are carters bb, new hei. Carbs fine.. its timing.. i just dialed it to 0*, turned off the engine to lock the distributor. Turned back on, and it starts with a "nice" iddle than it just goes up to 15 to 20* btc again...
