I thought this was a pretty cool site.  Anyone use this?  Are they correct?

Pretty cool

Now is there a website for outer parts would really be great to have.
Starters, Alternators, water pump/housings, exhaust manifolds  etc.

I had an article published in the April 2005 Mopar Action that listed casting numbers for all '67-'74 Mopar master cylinders.  Knowing the chore it was to compile that information, I can't imagine what it would be like to try to compile info on every casting number for every part used on a Mopar back in the muscle era!!

Sure, I have a couple copies of the magazine here and you are welcome to stop by and read one anytime you want! :biggrin:
But seriously, a couple years back, Moparts restoration tech guru "Snoopy" took my article and replaced some of the black and white pix with some better color shots I had, corrected a few typos for me, and sent the article back as a pdf.  If you email me, I can email you back with Snoopy's pdf. It's around a 5 MB file.
My email is brads147 at comcast.net  Might take me a few days to get back to you, the file is stored on my desktop which is getting a little long in the tooth, so I'm usually on my laptop rather than waiting 20 minutes for Firefox to get up and running on my desktop after firing it up, while I pull my hair out in frustration  :pullinghair: :swear:
