You could do the same thing I did, use the entire brake system off a donor '73 Plymouth Scamp. Just like a Dart with a Duster front clip and doors. As long as you grab the upper a-arms, spindles, disks, and calipers,(I can't remember if you need the lower arms too, but I used them) it will all bolt ...

The social impact of a certain type of internal combustion engine on society. hmm. On society as a whole, there probably is no effect. More likely, its influence can only be measured in the car-culture subsets that adhere to a particular brand. For those people who only associate with certain makes ...

Just some friendly advice, Crash..... The thingy with the waights(?) counterweights? is the crankshaft. I think you may be trying to fly before you've learned to walk. I'm not a master mechanic by any stretch, but I learned the basics before I tore into a car. Just remember... You may actually be ab...

This will probably get me banned, but here it goes..... I've got an idea, let's all just start posting pictures of fast cars on this website regardless of make or model. Phord, brand-x, rice-rocket, or a souped-up yugo with a steroid-injected gerbil on a wheel under its hood. That's because when I g...

I'm nowhere near done, and I've managed to spend UNGODLY amounts in spite of snagging sweetheart deals like th...

Buy the adapter plate $175.00 (about) and deal with removing it every time you want to adjust your rockers, or do what I did and engineer a setu...
