You know us Mopar guys
we love to modify stuff, drill holes and such.
Great news on your carb, hope it works better for you. There's a lot of other types of carbs out there and dirt cheap compared to a TBI setup. Don't write them off before you go spending all that hard earned cash.
A vacuum distributor can be super tuned to help a carb out too. Did you get a look at the tuning procedure I use on my Mopar 360 ?
Playing with the dist this way really helped me dial in all 800 cfms of my Thermoquad. I wish I'd known about that procedure 25 years and thousands of gallons ago !
Bent up and installed the two new steel brake lines that run from the new front hoses over the TTB and up to the union block under the master cylinder.
I finished up the front shocks today and I'm halfway through installing the new rotors, calipers, pads and Timken wheel bearings.
Bought the 4WD bearing lock ring socket a few months ago on sale and they sold me the wrong one !!!!!! After I'd blown my stack I went back and returned the socket.
They didn't have the right one, but it wasn't a wasted trip as my LED light's pigtails were in, and cheap ! $2.08 a pigtail, I bought 4 and they still owed me money.
It was late so I used my head for once and called a Canadian place like Autozone(The Parts Source) and they loaned me a socket for a few days for free(with a deposit of course).
Today I was able to get the locking ring off with needle nose pliers, but I figure it'd be tough trying to re-torque the ring without the right socket.
Say Norm, fellow pre-87 owner, whats the torque on that locking ring anyway ? The Haynes covers everyone but my 86 in describing the torque.
Here's what I did today;
