MEK can u resend pic? to the thread it is not coming up ??

I'll guess your work computer won't allow you to see pics hosted on other sites like mine.   :lol:

Here is the same pic. Notice the screw behind where the linkage meets the throttle stud on the carb.

Just ordered some new wheels (15" magnum 500's) for my Cuda and need to start shopping for tires now. I'm going to run 255R60-15's in the back and 235R60-15's in the front. Any suggestions for decent tires in those sizes? I currently run radial t/a's, but I'm looking for a more modern style.

I just bought the same sizes  in Firestone Indy 500. I have those tires on another car as well and for the money I like them. I don't like the BFG T/A's they seem to go hard as hockey pucks after 6 months. Just my  :2cents:

Oh yeah, are they metal like the originals? I have always like louvers and might look into getting some if they are not too much dinero.

Herb's parts sells them. They are not cheap! $1200 They are made by a Canadian outfit called Limited Parts Industries. www.limitedparts.ca  When I was at Carlisle I almost bought them there.I went to Moparfest here in Ontario ( Canada) and they were still $1200 but in Canadian funds and no tax or border crossing issues ( custom's taxes) It was a moment of weakness buying them but I sure am happy with the look ,fit and overall quality!

Hey, I actually walked by my Challenger today to get crimpers and cutters for my stereo install. I dont feel bad because when it cools off and the overtime calms down I will dig into it big time to get it ready for next summer.

First I'd like to thank everyone who posted topics relative to this swap. Since I don't have any mechanical training I couldn't have got this far without your help.

It was a busy weekend test fitting parts, rounding up some help that wouldn't empty the beer fridge before we were done and finally putting it in without a scratch.
