    Re: Billet forward and direct drums

    The thing you're paying for with true aerospace quality materials is the certifications (the stack of papers) saying that the raw materials and methods used to make the end product are approved to be...
  2. Re: when did mini van first get 5x114 hubs and drums?

    The rear discs are *not* "equivalent" to the drums...hence the different proportioning valves being used and the original Shelby Charger using the disc/drum NOT having a proportioning valve is a...

    Re: 91 daytona analog cluster pinout

    You need the FSM for your car and the donor car. Yes, you will have a good bit of splicing to do. 1990 started a whole new wiring scheme for G/J-body cars that include a BCM (Body Control Module)....

    Re: Floor Pan Restoration

    There are NO "off-the-shelf" body restoration panels for these cars. If you need to replace metal, you're either cutting it out of another car, or you're making it by hand.
  5. Re: when did mini van first get 5x114 hubs and drums?

    The rear brake lock-up issue is about vehicle dynamics. There's simply not enough load on the rear of the car to take advantage of the torque being applied by the brakes (think about trying to launch...

    Fuel pressure lines should be 5/16", return is 1/4".

    Congrats on the score!

    Re: Intermediate shaft machining

    I expected to see numbers in the higher 60's. Based on your research, it looks like my expectations were a bit high!



    I know this has been debated for a long time. Is there any actual...
  8. Re: Help from the group on engine replacement/swap

    The 3.0 V6 with associated engine bay harness, ECM, mounts, etc. is a "bolt-in". If the original 4-cylinder was not turbo, then the fuel pump will need to be upgraded to the V6/Turbo unit. This will...

    Re: Intermediate shaft machining

    WOW! 55-63RW is SOFT for steel! No wonder it galls so easily!

    I wonder if we could have sleeves machined, then hardened to press on like the 523/543/568?

    Re: Official BC Coilover Kit Development Interest.

    I simply used a regular hole saw chuck and 2 saws on the same chuck. I think the inner one that fits inside the OE hole is 2.5", maybe 3"? and the outer one was whatever size I needed (4"?). This is...

    Re: CSX VNT rear brakes

    As an addendum to my last post, yes, the front TC calipers are double-pin units, not single pin.

    I am down with that! Having more information in the KC is always a plus!

    The TC's rear calipers are exactly the same as the '87/'88 Daytona Shelby Z. The fronts I think are slightly different than...

    Re: CSX VNT rear brakes

    Could be! LOL I tried finding rebuild stuff for the 11" brake calipers (front and rear) and even that was not easy, especially the rear. Again...it's not like the parts *don't* exist because clearly...

    Re: Intermediate shaft machining

    I would think it would be harder to find a company to throw a single part into their nitride furnace than to get it induction hardened or coated.

    Re: CSX VNT rear brakes

    I definitely agree they shouldn't be $300! That's ludicrous. What bugs me more is that if they can be rebuilt, then there's parts...but why can't I find and order the parts and rebuild them myself!?

    Re: Intermediate shaft machining

    I agree...look into having it re-hardened (induction hardening...like a cam maybe?) or having DLC applied to it, which I've been considering for a while now.

    Re: CSX VNT rear brakes

    I understand what you're saying, but unfortunately this isn't the case. Micky Mattack just tried yesterday to add the calipers I found on RA to his cart...can't be done. Yes, Cardone *will* rebuild...

    Re: CSX VNT rear brakes

    Tell that to the TC guys. There's been a number of them over the past year or so trying to source the rear calipers and there is "0" in stock and they have to be sent out to be rebuilt as there's no...

    16x7.5 +35mm RPF1 with 225/50/16. No spacers, clears struts, fenders, shocks. Only rubs under steering lock (like all of them do with "wide" tires). If the car is lowered it's *possible* for the rear...
